Well hello, blog. It's been a while. 

It's been nearly a year since I last posted here, and no one is probably going to read this, but I just thought I'd come on to say... I MADE A SHORT FILM!!


Sunday, July 16, 2017

You know when you receive a text, but you just don't have the time to reply right now, so you put your phone down somewhere (or continue scrolling through Instagram) and make a mental note to get back to them a.s.a.p, but suddenly it's the year 2041 and too much time has passed it would actually be rude to ever interact with them ever again?

That's a perfect metaphor for how I feel about my blog right now. 

Heart-Stopping Drama Finally Gets The Recognition It Deserves: Line of Duty Series Four

Sunday, April 30, 2017

It’s the programme which has gripped the nation over the last six Sundays and left millions constantly on the edge of their seats wondering whatever’s next in the complex world of policing. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then where have you been for best part of the last two months? After making the bold move from a mid-week slot on BBC Two to being prime-time Sunday night BBC One viewing, Line of Duty has become one of the most popular British Drama’s to date, with the nation at fever pitch time and time again.

Book Review: I'll Give You The Sun

"You Have To See Miracles For There To Be Miracles" 

After spending two years of my life reading literature for the sole purpose of passing exams, it’s not really surprising that after my GCSEs were over I took a break from fiction. However, being an English student, since then I have felt the overwhelming pressure to read, because it’s something I should just do, but time has escaped me and I’ve never quite got around to it until now.

Mother's Day Madness: Are We Being Conned?

Sunday, March 26, 2017

Hello again. It's been a while since I last posted, which is something you're all probably used to by now so I won't offer a long-winded explanation and will just leave it at the fact college is taking over my life and there doesn't look to be any end in sight right now. Sitting at home this morning I came across this rather controversial and actually quite amusing article my sixteen year old self wrote for GCSE English last year, and with my lack of motivation to write coherent blog posts and the fact it's Mother's Day, I thought I'd share it with you, so enjoy! **Disclaimer at the bottom of the page**

Hibernation, College and Culture: Where Have I Been?

Thursday, February 23, 2017

In all honesty, I did want to take a short break from blogging at the beginning of the year, to come up with new ideas and find more inspiration for exciting content. However, as March is literally around the corner, I didn’t expect it to be this long. In my defence, January was far too cold to even consider venturing out to do exciting things I could write about, the orange cheese puff of whom we do not name has done so many unthinkable things already it’s left me pretty speechless, and most importantly of all Sherlock was back on and I’m still not over Mary Watson’s tragically heroic death, so ya know – priorities.

September Playlist

Friday, September 30, 2016

Hello, yes I am still alive, sorry to disappoint. 

As you've probably noticed it's been a while since I last posted, and I'd like to be able to say there's a number of reasons for that. That I've maybe started training for a marathon or taken up a new hobby, or decided to become more active and given up the internet for a few weeks while I took over the world, or just that my schedule has been overflowing with activities and plans and I just haven't had the time to sit and get some words down for all you lovely people.

If only my life was that interesting.

A Weight Off My Shoulders

Sunday, August 28, 2016

Thursday 25th August 2016. Anxious was an understatement. The day I had been waiting for since the start of summer had finally arrived and despite the usual encouragements of "you'll be fine" and "we love you no matter what" left echoing in my mind, I still couldn't shake the feeling of dread which was consuming me. 

To put it politely, I was bricking it.
