REVIEW: The Perks of Being A Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

Saturday, 23 September 2017

Charlie is a freshman. And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it. Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mix-tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But Charlie can't stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.

Best Dressed of the 2017 Emmy Awards

Monday, 18 September 2017

The 2016/2017 season was a time of truly great television and the nominees for the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards kept millions of us glued to our screens. Shows like Stranger Things, The Handmaid's Tale, Big Little Lies and Westworld have been hot-topics of conversation for many across the world, as we stopped and stared in awe at their brilliance.
It was truly a season that had women at its forefront. We fell head-over-heels for an entire kaleidoscope of female characters with different backgrounds, different motivations and different strengths, every single one of whom we completely held in our hearts.

#UniAdvice: 10 Tips to Help You Get the Most Out of Fresher's Week

Monday, 11 September 2017

Is it September already?
Ever since starting university, I've realised that time just seems to be going quicker and quicker. And I don't know if that is related to the constant action that university always seems to be, or just a feature of impending adulthood. Either way, it has taught me to appreciate every single second of the university experience because, for the majority, it is only three years of a person's life and those years can go by so fast when you're surrounded by the right people.
So here are my tips on the first part of the university experience: Freshers Week.
A time for first times, throwing yourself into the unknown and forging your first step of the next part of your life.

133 Thoughts I Had Whilst Watching the Game of Thrones Episode, "Beyond the Wall"

Monday, 21 August 2017

 As the greatest warriors that Westeros has ever seen go beyond the Wall to take the first step in the worst plan that I have ever seen, I am having to ignore more and more errors to continue watching the drama of Game of Thrones. It is almost becoming like one of those absolutely terrible movies that I have to watch, in which I have to not pay attention to certain aspects of it, in order to continue in my enjoyment of it. Although of course, even now in season seven, Game of Thrones is far from bad. It is just that, once you have dealt with near-literary perfection, it is difficult to watch it being warped into something unrecognisable.
