New Word #16: Words Recently Learned

Really enjoyed learning some new words from this post and decided to share it with you guys so we can learn them together 😁

Haoyan Do

sprightly: lively; full of energy. I learned this word from Pooja here. It also shows up in William Wordsworth’s poem, “Along the margin of a bay:/Ten thousand saw I at a glance,/Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.”

bugbear: a cause of obsessive fear, irritation, or loathing. I learned this word from Pooja here.

calisthenics: gymnastic exercises to achieve bodily fitness and grace of movement. I learned this word from Heterodox Buddhist here.

sitch: a situation or state of affairs, usually a bad situation. I learned this word from Bonnyword Manor here. This word is not to be confused with snitch, which means to secretly tell someone in authority that someone else has done something bad, often in order to cause trouble.

tendril: A slender threadlike appendage of a climbing plant. I learned…

Hi everyone. It’s just under three days to the live release of my new book; CROSSROADS (Winds of love) on Amazon.

In this post, I’ll be sharing clips from the Pre-order blog promotion tour. The blogs and websites that hosted and promoted this book are amazing so I hope you read on and explore them.

I’ve written and placed some poetry within this post, which is close to a few themes that are found in the book.

The ocean rages and the falls cascade
Thrills rise, then plummet to impetuous depths
And I think of you
Where once there was love
Now pain remains

If you have been following my blog for a while you probably know that I really admire Jude’s blog and I am a huge fan of his writing. I was so happy to hear that he had put out…

Happy Friday everyone! I hope all is well with you all. I’m feeling pretty good myself. As we near the end of February also known as Black History Month, I wanted to share a few lesser-known and interesting facts about Black History. This is a month that reflects and pays tribute to the achievements of generations of African Americans.

An Interview With Nurse Tasha

Read this awesome post by Tiani and had to reblog it! Her sister is actually a nurse and is working hard during this pandemic to save lives. Check out the interview she did with her sister as well as the information listed about healthcare. And if you want to see a part two of the interview be sure to leave some questions for her sister in the comments!

This post is sponsored by :DP HealthNow 

Did you guys know that Tuesday, April 7th was World Health Day? A day that recognizes nurses, midwives, and other health care workers. I thought it would be cool to actually interview a nurse. Luckily for me, my sister is one of the nurses working on the front lines. We are all so proud of her! img_8646

Before we get into it, I want to give a huge thank you to :DP HealthNow for providing me with a membership.

Now more than ever, we are worried about our health. Telemedicine is a good choice because you can stay home and receive care virtually. It is recommended by the CDC that instead of leaving the house and risking infection, people should call or video chat with a doctor using a service like Teladoc!

How To Maintain Balance In Your Life While At University

University is one of those things where if you let it, it can really consume all your time. It’s easy to fall into a pattern of only focusing on work and putting all the other important things in your life on the back burner. However, this is not exactly healthy because you need to have balance in your life because if you don’t have balance it’s easy to get exhausted, suffer from mental health problems and even physical problems. Here are some ways that can help you bring balance to your life while at university:

  1. Plan everything/keep a schedule– I would highly recommend getting a planner or scheduling your time in other ways. It will help to organise your time so that you don’t end up spending too much time on one thing and not enough on another. 
  2. Take…
