Prior to taking Politics for my A-levels, I was warned that it would make me a cynic; whilst I'd describe myself as being sceptical, I'm not really apathetic. Today is a year on from that referendum; rather than commenting on Brexit or Bremain, I wanted to analyse the actual mechanics of the Referendum-thereby suggesting possible … Continue reading Reform: politically.
I am very excited to be getting a new planner: you'll be able too see my reasons as for the switch soon, as I'll be posting about it soon.

This book … Continue reading The Summer Of Impossible Things Release*
To be Happy is something subjective, but I wanted to count my blessings, and put on a post what makes me happy. Planning! Because it is a comfort, and it is always something that I can fall back on.

Please be warned that this post is a bit of a rant, and I may sound unreasonable at times. Social media. Oh, social media. I have defended you, loved you, and become a fan in equal measure. But I am REALLY SICK of how you're being used. More specifically; to spread drama, create rumours, and adding … Continue reading Why I’m Starting To Dislike Social Media.
