What Am I Doing with my Life: 2017 Edition

I feel that this is a running theme in my world. Like, what actually am I doing with my life?!

The answer at the moment is working too much and neglecting my poor blog(s) and Youtube channel. When writing is your job, and you make vlogs for a client, it's easy to forget about the OGs like your own personal blog - which is exactly what I have done for the past year! 

How to Sleep

It's 1am on a Saturday morning and I am awake. I would like to say that it's because I'm out clubbing and having a wonderful time (though blogging in a club is where even I would draw the line!), but it's simply because, I cannot get to bloody sleep!

#BEDN: What you Left Behind - Jessica Verdi

An advanced copy of this book was kindly sent to me for review by the publishers. This book follows super popular, football star (of course) Ryden as he navigates life with a small baby after the death of his girlfriend to cancer. So, it's pretty heavy, though ultimately enjoyable to read.

Forward Slash - Louise Voss & Mark Edwards: Review

I never, ever read thriller/crime books. For a start, I am far too anxious for anything like that, my imagination runs away with me and I cannot handle it. I’ve also never thought it would be something I could find myself interested in. So I have no idea how I ended up with this on my Kindle but after reading it I am so glad I did!

Top Tips for Running in your Students' Union Elections

Running in your union elections is one of the best, more rewarding things you can do, but boy is it hard work! I ran for VP of my union and I got it (yay!), but I’m by no means an expert, these are just a few things I’ve picked up along the way! I’ve compiled my top tips, for running the best election campaign - of course it's super important to be aware of your own union's rules whilst the reading this! These were just things that worked for me, there's no guarantee, but they are some things I wish I'd known when I ran.

Real Talk: Anxiety

Earlier this week, I read this great article by Kady Morrison which looked at '9 Things I wish people understood about anxiety', which I liked so much, I decided to do my own version, based on my own experiences of Anxiety.

Girl Online: A Review

I’ve only ever seen a few of Zoella’s vlogs and they’re fine. I don’t think I am the target audience, so she is certainly not my favourite vloggers, however as an avid fan of all Youtube culture, it was never in doubt that I would end up reading her debut novel, Girl Online. I read the whole thing in less than 12 hours, and I’m surprised to say that I didn’t hate it.

Attachment: A Review

I loved Eleanor & Park and I’m not sure any Rainbow Rowell book will ever live up to it in my eyes, but of course I wanted to give her others ago. I was really not sure about Attachments until after I had gotten past the half-way mark, which is exactly how I’d felt about Landline.
