To be or not to be … what was the question?

A little while ago, a friend asked me if I wanted to be in a play. Thanks to the 'I wonder what would happen if' attitude I've adopted during my 20's, I thought about it for half a second before saying "fuck it, why not". The Midult I was expecting to feel nervous during the… Continue reading To be or not to be … what was the question?

QLC to room 101 please

You know you're an adult when doctor appointments become less 'help me, I have a cold' and more 'welcome to the party, here are my organs'. *You should probably stop reading now if you're squeamish.* The Midult But there's definitely no room for shyness when you're having an MOT on your reproductive system.

Alexa, please get me a light switch

Having grown up in the medieval days of dialling up the internet, I find it hard to believe that in 2018 there's more technology in a smartphone than in the first spaceship sent to the moon. AND harder to believe that I've mostly used this technology to do Buzzfeed quizzes to find out what type… Continue reading Alexa, please get me a light switch

I Do … (want dessert)

I recently wrote about the reality of breaking-up - the chore of untagging yourself from endless holiday photos and figuring out who should get custody of the pug-patterned oven gloves (me) and the toaster (also me). But once the initial crappery of the situation has passed, the time comes to face the world again and… Continue reading I Do … (want dessert)

Oops I did it again

Every year, like most people, I have a birthday. And every year, grateful to have made it through to the 'next round', I face the same battle between 'call me Beyoncé' and 'well this is embarrassing, let's pretend I'm not here and go back to our normal lives' If this year is anything to go… Continue reading Oops I did it again

Stop interrupting my grinding

Girls Think I'm Funny The Quarter Life Crisis wouldn't be complete without a messy break-up - followed by tears, cocktails, wine, more cocktails, therapy and an unwelcome appreciation for Celine Dion.

Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now

There comes a point in adulthood when you feel the pressure to have grown up and become 'who you really are'. If I was destined to be a confused twenty-something with lactose intolerance, an abundance of Love Island references and a worrying obsession with unicorns then I'd say I'm living the dream. But what I… Continue reading Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now

Knock, knock. Who’s there? Secret bar . OoOh.

There comes a point in your adulthood where you feel the urge to reign in your drinking habits. For me, this is currently spurred on by the trend in vegan brunches, yoga classes and 'look after yourself' memes #blessed.
