MHAM | What I learned from having a mental illness

thebookwormofnotredame (20).png

Dear reader,

I remember having to face my first panic attack when I was 11 years old. I have been diagnosed with depression at 14. A lot of other names have been added to all of this, but the whole point is that I have been suffering from a mental illness pretty much my all life. Obviously it helped me being who I am today, even though it does not define me.

I think it’s important to emphasise the fact that none of what I have been through really says anything about myself. I just learned through the years to get something out of it, to see the brightside of it all. So here is what I learned from having a mental illness.

Best of Black Friday

The “Hey! I’m alive!” post

Dear reader,

I am still alive. I know, shocking right?! I thought it might be good for me to tell you all that I haven’t disappeared yet.

Actually, as I want to become a literature teacher I have to pass what we call here in France the CAPES competition: basically you first have written exams and if you’re one of the best you go to the oral exams and then if you’re one of those best, then congrats you are a teacher.

Yeah, so…

The written exams are in a week. *panic*

I am okay but all I do is studying and it helps me dealing with my stress and anxiety. Because of it I didn’t have the time to blog. Hopefully I’ll find some time again afterwards, but no matter what I’ll be back as soon as I can.

But I wanted to come by and to check in today to actually thank you all. We are more than 400 people on this page and it’s a lot!

Thank you for trusting me and for making it all so exciting.

I love you all, and will see you all soon.

Love always,

Clara

Dear reader,

I know that I haven’t been the most consistent and active blogger. What made it worse was that my computer has been broken while I was at the hospital this summer. Ever since it has been harder to blog, even though I really wanted to. Well, I am happy to say that I am now back and that I have a brand new computer. I can now finally blog at home and at peace, and I have so many ideas that I can’t wait to share with you all.

As I disappeared for a while I decided to start my comeback with a wrap-up for the months of both December and January. I hope that it’s okay with you all. I missed you and am so happy to be back!

Without further ado, let’s jump into my December and January wrap-up!

My autumn bucket list 🎃🍂

Dear reader,

After all those blog posts saying that Autumn is my favourite season of the year, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I have an entire bucket list for it. Last year Autumn went by way too fast and I haven’t been able to do all I wanted during it. This year I intend to do the most I can and to enjoy every second.

This blog post will be quite short, but I still wanted to be able to share with you all my 2018 Autumn bucket list.
