Based in the land of Geordies, FILLER CHAPTERS is a lifestyle and travel blog ran by Bekki and catered towards those may find themselves going through a bit of a Filler Chapter.
But what is a Filler Chapter, you ask?
They’re basically a period of your life where everything feels a bit ‘icky.’ You feel like the whole world is moving and you’re more standstill than you were during a game of musical chairs at the year five school disco.
Basically, Filler Chapters can come in any form – after graduating, whilst working in a job you detest, or even sticking through a bad relationship out of pure habit. During the dullest of times you may find yourself pondering: who am I? What do I want to do? Should I run away from everything and have a gap yaaah? Or would getting a fringe cut in help me gain control in a sense of cluelessness?
There’s no right answer but until you figure it out, you may find yourself stuck in a Filler Chapter. Some days you might find yourself saturated with an overwhelming sensation of growth where you finally sense a way out of the dull void (side note: the answer is *NOT* cutting in a fringe). But some days, the most exciting part of the day may be when you cook a perfectly poached egg, or receive a compliment for your outfit. But it’s important to note that these periods are just as definitive as, without them, you couldn’t appreciate the Big Chapters in life.
Like any story, a protagonist cannot be built on just peaks alone. In fact, in the same time that you’re buttering the sourdough bread to match your pristine poached eggs of goodness, the universe is out there gathering energy and assembling the resources, which will eventually lead to the Big Chapters of your life.
And just like the universe, Bekki will be out gathering energy as she reflects on her own personal experiences in life – Filler Chapters, Big Chapters, and the in-between bits, alongside some Geordie Land recommendations for low-key measure.
