Happy Day of the Force my young padawans! It is finally upon us, Star Wars Day, the day where we can don our finest robes, hook our lightsabers to our belts and wander round the streets pretending to force choke anyone who gives us even the slightest of sneering looks…
No, just me?
A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult. – Melinda Gates
To all the women out there; my friends and family, those I will know in the future and those I may never know. You are all perfect.
Love yourself, be kind to yourself and continue to be yourself. Because yourself is who you should always strive to be.
Today is a day where I can feel proud. Proud that the ink smudges when I write. Proud that the spirals of my notebook cause some very wobbly looking penmanship. Even proud that I was the ‘awkward’ one using those green and yellow scissors in school. You know the ones I mean. I mean, why can’t they invent tin openers that everyone can use?!
Yes, today is National Left Handers Day, and I am proud to be one of the select few. So show your support for we who struggle during pivotal moments. When our signatures turn in to blurs of ink, we still move on.
Since its release in 1996 Pokemon Red and Blue has sold over 31 million copies worldwide, one of the best selling RPG games of all time. In the modern day it seems that the game has made its comeback.
For those who don’t know of today’s global holiday, I myself had no clue, today is World Cat Day.
Now instead of looking at all the pretty kitties….I’m not a fan of cats in general, I urge you to use today to do some good.
Day 2 at E3 2014 and Nintendo have, by far, produced the most impressive looking lineup. I myself own the original Nintendo Wii and have recently purchased a 3DS, but have had no incentive to buy a Wii U. Until now.
So I’m going to go ahead and do something that I try not to normally; talk about myself. This week has been Mental Health Awareness Week and I feel it only courteous to talk to you all about my personal struggles over the years, and try and shed some light on what we can all do to help.
The festive season is almost over once more. Tonight Big Ben will ring in the new year and the cycle will restart. 365 more days until the next. So this is the time for us to give thanks for the year just gone. Sorry to my American friends, I know you did this a month ago. And my Canadian friends, you took part in this two months ago! My apologies!
I know a year never really goes by without hardships. I myself have been through some tough times over the past year. But we always have those around us that pick us back up and carry us forward. For me, my family and friends are my rock. Without them I would not be where I am today, and for that I am, and always will be, truly grateful.
But this next year, 2014. For me, this year will be focused on growth. And no, I don’t want to be 6ft or anything like that. I am of course talking about developing myself as a person. I’m not trying to say I’m a horrible person, I don’t want to give anyone that impression. But there are things that I can work on, and this is something I plan to do over the upcoming year.
But I think my true New Years Resolution is not to have any resolutions. This idea of setting yourself goals, or giving yourself something that you have to do by this time the next year baffles me. Surely your resolutions shouldn’t be something you should be doing, but something you want to be doing. Get out there, have fun, experience new places and do it now before that thing called ‘life’ gets in the way. We should never limit ourselves to what we can do, because limits were made to be broken.
Tuesday 22nd October 2013, a sigh of relief is heard from the mouths of the thousands of Windows Phone users around the globe.
For exactly a year I have owned the beauty below (Nokia Lumia 800). Deciding not to conform to the ‘social norm’ that todays teenagers, and my Mum, believe to be right I chose not to buy an iPhone. Windows was going to be the next big thing. I could feel it. But there was always one thing letting me down.
No, I’m not plotting the downfall of anyone. You can all take a breath.
This year marks the 123rd Birthday of the extraordinary, one of a kind, crime novelist Agatha Christie. To mark this momentous year, Waterstones have created an, if I may say so myself, ingenious competition for all you undercover detectives out there. A ‘whodunnit’ for the modern age.
