Manchester

Last night, as you all know, Manchester was hit with a horrific terrorist attack. One so sickening, so utterly abhorrent that targeted beautiful, innocent children. Whilst of course all terrorist attacks against anyone are completely heinous, it is something that feels so much different when it is so close to home. Hearing the news as…

Break

So I took a little break. Mostly because Easter was so hectic, what with me travelling to London for a short while as well as spending some time back at home in Manchester. And then came the dreaded, sleepless, junk food fuelled exam season. Additionally, I was also working quite a bit over that period…

Beauty and the Beast

As I finally handed in my last piece of university work, minus my impending exams, yesterday I decided that I needed to celebrate this occasion somehow. And what better way to do that than by going to the cinema to see a remake of a classic Disney film! Being the crazy Harry Potter fan that…

Carnage

So, as I browsed BBC iPlayer a few days ago, I briefly saw an advert for a show called Carnage with a huge picture of Simon Amstell right on the cover. It wasn’t that appealing in all honesty so I didn’t even bother to read the description and resorted to finding myself an episode of…

Acne

Like many other teens, I have suffered with acne throughout my years of growing up. It began at the age of 12 with small red spots that just used to occur on my forehead, which I then proceeded to cover up with a huge greasy semi Justin Bieber like fringe for far too many years….

Semester Two

So, that’s my second semester done. As of the end of this week, all of my teaching lectures have finished and I have only exams left to attend before the academic year is over. I honestly cannot believe it. It feels as though I’ve still only just started the year. I’ve only just about settled…

Crush

I actually hate that word so much. It sounds so silly and childish. It was a word that you’d use when you’re in high school and I am most certainly past those days. Nevertheless it is a crush that has overcome me in recent weeks, and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m not someone who…

Scottish Independence

The talk of Scottish independence has arisen once more. After everything that has occurred in politics over the last few years with a majority Tory election result and Brexit after Scotland had decided it was bet that they stay part of the United Kingdom, it’s no wonder that they are fighting for independence more than…

I Crave A Love So Deep The Ocean Would Be Jealous

I heard that quote a while ago. At first I thought it was ridiculous and cheesy and I still do, yet I can most definitely relate to it. As a child I grew up on the Disney Princess films which I absolutely adored! Snow White was my favourite and I can even recall the very…

The Penultimate Play

I’m not sure if I mention this in previous posts or not but, I got a part in a play. Back in November I audition for the GU Alexandrian Society play and low and behold, I smashed it! It wasn’t for a particularly serious play however, it was just a little fun project that the…

Loss

Sorry that the tone of this post is going to be a little sad however this is a topic that I have been wanting to address for some months now due to personal reasons. Recently I lost my Granddad which was something that my family and I had been expecting for a long time due…

Moving Away

Moving away from home is always a huge step that a lot of people experience in their life. Some people move when they’re young as their parents decide to relocate for reasons such as work or to be closer to other family. A lot of students leave home upon deciding to attend university in another…
