"My dad and one of his best mates went to a red hot chilli peppers concert before I was born. Myself and my dads mates son (we … Continue reading Music experiences
Reflecting is a great way to see how far you’ve come and where you need to improve, after blogging for over a year, I can see how much my style of writing and formatting have changed throughout the months.

Last week my friend and I finally had the pleasure of going to the movies to see ‘War for the Planet … Continue reading Can you get off your phone, please? Someone of us are trying to watch.
Deciding things has never been a strong point of mine, I blame it on being a Libra but I guess blaming star signs doesn’t always help. Another research project means another decision I need to make which some seems impossible until I weigh up all the topics I can think of and what … Continue reading Media, people, and decisions
This topic was actually one of my most favourite topics to do in a long time because I got to speak to my lovely mother about her experiences with media, especially television.
