Emma Blackery Live

Finally. Last night (or last night on the day I'm writing this, which is 27th October 2016), I saw Emma Blackery live at the O2 Academy in Birmingham, which was just as bloody amazing as it sounds. It was quite small, which is good considering that it was my first concert and I was very… Continue reading Emma Blackery Live

To Books

How do you find time to read so much? I spend less time than I should on my college homework, I take my books downstairs and read whilst I'm eating lunch. I pull them out of my bag and read them on trains to and from sixth form, I procrastinate on my assignments in favour… Continue reading To Books

The A.

When you look at the acronym LGBTQIA, you know what all of those initials mean, right? Well, maybe you think you do. And maybe you're right. But I just want to go through it with you, just in case you have any misunderstanding. L stands for Lesbian. That's quite well known, maybe for the wrong reasons, but it's… Continue reading The A.

Overthink

16:32 There's something slightly weird with a school in the late afternoon, everything's very isolated and desolate, and way too clean and tidy for tables with are normally laden with pieces of paper and books about biology. There's also only the minimalist level of chatter, with maybe only a few discussions going on between the… Continue reading Overthink

The Concept of ‘Clever’

I've had one common goal throughout my time in education. Ever since I could read and write, count up to ten and recite my 3 times table, I've been desperate to enter a high level, high ranking university. When I was five, I decided that I wanted to be a teacher, and had my sights… Continue reading The Concept of ‘Clever’

Reminiscent Of A Different Time

I saw my old best friend today. We were close from when we were three until when we were nine, and then slowly drifted into the space of 'just a friend' and then into 'just a nothing'. I moved schools, then I moved towns, and then everything didn't fit anymore. But I saw her again… Continue reading Reminiscent Of A Different Time

I have nothing else to post, puns, writing

Pun, Pun Pun…

National Coming Out Day

Today (11th October) is National Coming Out Day, so I thought I'd better make something to commemorate it, especially as I have a LOT to say on the subject. First of all, it's just a day. You shouldn't EVER feel pressured to come out from anyone or anything, especially not a day. It's really not important for… Continue reading National Coming Out Day

Everywhere you look,… Continue reading Spooky Scary Skeletons
