You’re doing great, sweetie – Don’t be in a rush, hun x

  I've always been too fast and too smart for my own good. That kid that wants to get involved in everything. And now I am at the age where that translates into being the woman with all of the ideas and the mentality that she can do them all. Superwoman, basically. At the beginning…

Christian Feminist? Feminist Christian?

Can you be both? Are the two mutually exclusive? As a Christian, we are often taught views about women that can come across as sexist or oppressive. Often these views are 'legitimised' by Bible scriptures so they aren't questioned or opposed. On the other side of the spectrum, the media tells you that women can…

Stress is Not my Friend

As of now, I've handed in four out of five of my assignments due this month.  I submitted two group projects today and if that has taught me anything it's I handle stress badly. I am a really good team player - and that's not me boasting! And I really do thrive under pressure. But…

Drastic steps to growth

Sometimes getting to the next level, in whatever context, really requires you to do something drastic.  Something a little different from what you would normally do. They say foolishness is doing the same thing each time and expecting a different result. I am starting to really understand that. This year, 2017 and generally this academic…

Motivating While Unmotivated – Guest Blogger: Leonie Mills

If you have ever been in this position, you'll know how hard it is. Being in a position of leadership or being responsible for other people is never easy. But what happens when the success or failure of something rests and you and your vim is in the minus region. When procrastination affects other people…

HOW TO: CREATE AND SUSTAIN YOUR OWN SOCIAL MEDIA BRAND

Two of my friends asked me for some advice about starting online projects. It made me realise that over the years I have gathered some tips and tricks and I am the type of person to share my knowledge, no matter how limited. Firstly, I'm going to blow my trumpet a little and tell you…

Five Days of Tears and Restoration

I cried five days in a row. Not for anything bad, but just because I could not physically fathom how amazing God is. Last week, I went to Wales for the weekend, with my friends from my fellowship RY Sheffield. This wasn't a cheeky getaway, as much as we did have fun, it was a retreat.…

CAMERAS AND COACHES

Welcome to February 2017! We're only a week in and I already know this is going to be a super blessed month, with lots of opportunities for us to grab! On the first of Feb, I was in Birmingham filming with and interviewing Chelsea Monye, who is  the CEO and Founder of The Esquire Network.…

YOU DO TOO MUCH!!

I enjoy working. I like starting a project with the vision of what it could become in the future. I like feeling fulfilled doing media projects, whether that's blogging, filming, YouTube or photography. That is where I 'find' myself. My friends LOVE to tell me, "Paula, you do too much!!" to which I laugh and…

So this is what freedom tastes like?? I like it.

Guys, I think I manage to forget how stressful exams are every single time. Like, stress. But as I write this post, I AM EXAM FREEEEE - until the next exam period but let's not let that ruin this moment;) If you're close to me, you'll know how tiring this exam period has been for…

Nice guys and girls don’t win??

I've always wondered why people say nice guys (and girls) don't win. Why is that? Why do we believe that? Forget bag for life, I am a friend for life. I strongly value nice people. This is a post is a shoutout to you guys, keep doing you, boo! Please do not let anyone let…

KEEP SENDING THOSE EMAILS! – How to Network in this Digital Age (Tips & Tricks)

Keep pushing the boundaries, keep working hard and keep knocking on the door. As a journalism student, who is constantly being told that our industry is 'saturated' and that you have to be the very best to get a job, you can be pushed either of two ways. You can use the competition as motivation…

Hello, My Name is Paula and I’m Addicted to My Phone!!

Addicted. Addiction. They are such 'hard' words but I've come to believe that in order to overcome - or at least begin to overcome - them you have to admit that they actual exist. So that's my first step: I have a slight addiction to my phone and more specifically social media, messaging and generally…
