Before lockdown started in the UK, I saw the new Sonic the Hedgehog film at the cinema, on Valentine’s Day no less. My partner is a HUGE Sonic fan – he even has tattoos of Sonic and Knuckles on each of his calves – so of course we had to see it on release day, even ifContinue reading “Sonic the Hedgehog movie review”

Five books that made me who I am today

When I started this blog earlier this year, one of my motivations was to share my love of books. Though I’ve always loved reading, there are many other things that I’m passionate about and that take up my time – films, TV, video games, as well as my academic interests. So far on the blog I’veContinue reading “Five books that made me who I am today”

Tips for starting out in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

As I mentioned in my previous post with recommendations for things to watch, play and read during lockdown, I have been totally addicted to Animal Crossing: New Horizons since it was released last month!

A shortage of spoons

This is not the next post I had planned. You may have noticed this is my first post since January – it’s March now, and February was a silent month for the blog.

What I carry with me

I started my first ever creative writing course last week. As much as I’ve always loved writing and yearned to be a writer, I’ve never actually taken any formal training, done any workshops, anything like that. I think I’ve always been too afraid of criticism, even the constructive sort.  It definitely pushes me out ofContinue reading “What I carry with me”

2020 reading challenge

My previous post started, ‘all my life I’ve considered myself a writer’.
