Over the last few months, although at times I have had shedloads of work and commitments, I was always at home. As lockdown begins to ease, I am finding more ways to fill my calendar, as some aspects of life are beginning to open up again. This weekend, I had a debating competition across theContinue reading “Is it good to be busy?”
‘Is It Just Me?’ is a song by Sasha Sloan, which addresses some opinions of hers which, in today’s society, would largely be frowned upon. The more I listen to the song, the more I understand some of them, so I thought for this week I’d address each unpopular opinion for some fun! “I hateContinue reading “‘Is It Just Me?’- unpopular opinions”
This morning I headed back to school and that meant a change to my routine. As so much has changed over the past few months, I thought I’d do an updated ‘Day in the Life’, as I enjoy reading and watching these myself. I’m saying goodbye to my late starts, pyjama like outfits and constantContinue reading “A Day in the Life”
This week, Netflix released a new show called ‘Ginny and Georgia’. I’d seen the trailer and so I had added it to my list but, after recent news breaks, I’m not sure I want to give it another stream. Taylor Swift called out one of the ‘jokes’ in the movie in which a character accusedContinue reading “‘Casual Sexism’ is not okay”
Yesterday, Boris Johnson announced that all social distancing measures could be lifted on the 21st of June 2021. Whether this will go ahead, I’m sure many of us are doubtful. However, I’m going to stay positive for now and thought it was suitable to compile a short list of some of the things I hopeContinue reading “Things I Hope To Do This Summer”
As I sit down to write on the second/ fourth day of half term, depending on whether you count the weekend, I thought I would write about how I found the last few weeks after entering lockdown 3. It wasn’t exactly the start to the year any of us wanted, but it’s what we wereContinue reading “Half-Term Update”
Over the last fortnight or so, I indulged myself with a new, dystopian novel; ‘The New Wilderness’. The newly established author, Diane Cook, was shortlisted for the 2020 Booker prize for her modern masterpiece.** Her book follows a group of civilians who, in an attempt to escape the increasingly dangerous city they live in, areContinue reading “‘The New Wilderness’”
It’s been under an hour since the news of Sir Tom Moore’s death broke. I gasped aloud when I saw it and knew that today would mark a sad day for England. Sir Tom captured the nation’s heart last spring, raising over £33million for the NHS, and will certainly remain in a special place forContinue reading “Thank you, Sir Tom Moore”
Last week, we were surprised with one of the UK’s rarest gifts; snow. In light of this, I thought I’d write a short description about the snow, as I found my surrounding landscapes truly beautiful. Similarly, the snow also brought a general happiness to the week, and so I made sure to include one ofContinue reading “Snow- My First Ever Description”
Seeing my ‘year ago today’s’ this year has been a lot less fun than usual. Last year I had an amazing January. I was settled into my new school, was going out every weekend and had had an incredible start to the new year… It was a time where no one had even begun toContinue reading “How to Make Your January Less Blue”
