Tea as a Remedy
If you’re British, you’ll already know that a cup of tea solves all problems. A London high court judge ruled in 2014 that a couple in a custody feud needed to simply sit down and work it out over a cup of tea. Apparently, it worked. To me, the judge’s ruling is a no-brainer. Of […]

An Experiment in Adult Colouring-In
Some Christmases ago, 2014 I believe, adult colouring books were all the rage. I received two for Christmas that year. One had a Game of Thrones theme (my mum knows me well) and the other was a secret garden theme. In two years, I didn’t even open them. ‘Who has time for colouring in?’ I thought. […]

Scary Movies Are Too Scary for Me: Part One
My partner asks me almost every night to go and see It (2017) with him. Almost every night, I have an excuse. “I have to do this assignment tonight (true),” or “I have three hours of lectures to watch (true),” or “No, you’ve got too much homework to do (true).” I do sort of want to […]
Review – Channel Zero: Candle Cove (2016)

Are You Sitting Comfortably?
I used to joke a lot about feeling old, which didn’t always go over well with those around me (particularly when I was the youngest person there). What I meant was that my body just can’t handle what it used to. We’ve all heard that hangovers get worse as you age, although I’ve never been […]
Why is My Generation Still Obsessed with Harry Potter?
There’s a pretty good chance that, on any given day, I’ll be scrolling through Facebook and something Harry Potter-related will pop up in my feed. It’s no secret that our generation is totally obsessed with our Hogwarts houses. Despite being a huge HP fan myself, I’m still not totally sure why it’s such a big […]
You Can’t Tell Me What to Do!
You know that thing where, as soon as someone tells you what to do, you don’t want to do it? It’s the teenager in all of us. Like, there’s dishes in the sink and you’re planning on washing them, but then your Dad / housemate tells you to do them, and it’s suddenly pushed to last […]
