Don’t Rain on my Parade

I haven't blogged in a good while now, in part because I haven't had much to say, and in part because I've had too much to say. Then, a few days ago, stories came to light in the news that couldn't get a particular line of this song out of my head. The line will… Continue reading Don’t Rain on my Parade

Wonder Woman. Oh My Wow.

Yesterday I finally got to watch Wonder Woman. As a humongous fan of DC to the point where I barely even enjoy any Marvel except X-Men and Robert Downey Junior's face, I was really looking forward to this film, but was a little apprehensive. Not because I'm of the opinion that DC films have always… Continue reading Wonder Woman. Oh My Wow.

There have been a lot of things going in my life this year, to the point where I was asked in multiple job… Continue reading How to Motivate Yourself


Life at 23

Last week on 13th April, I turned the big ol' 2 3. Twenty-three. My goodness me. Now there some great connotations attached to the number 23, Nathan Scott and Michael Jordan's basketball numbers, the bowling lane they use in the Big Lebowski, X-23 is Wolverine's daughter and also called LAURA!, and a beautiful song by… Continue reading Life at 23


Dublin. St Patrick’s Day. Derry. So Happy.

I have, quite literally, collapsed from the most wonderful weekend into a week of essays, training, and three job interviews - LIFE. Here is a quick whistle stop tour of it! Dublin on St Patrick's Day been on my travel spreadsheet for ages, and in my mind of must-go-to places/events for even longer. This year,… Continue reading Dublin. St Patrick’s Day. Derry. So Happy.
