Alice in Wonderland (the film)

During the festive season (Merry Christmas by the way) I have been taking advantage of the epicness of Christmas television. A whole variety of films have been on including Tim Burton’s adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. Quite an intriguing movie, sort of a combination between Middle Earth, Narnia and Horton hears a who. It stars…

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

‘The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey’ a film that I have been told on many occasions to be the most anticipated picture of 2012. Yesterday I went to see this film and I feel that it is always nice to do a little light-hearted review of a film you have recently seen. The Hobbit: An Unexpected…

Cabin Pressue Series 4 Recording 2

When you mix together being a massive Cabin Pressure fan and not getting tickets to the second recording of Cabin Pressure Series 4, the result is 5 hours standing in the middle of London waiting to sneak into the studios and meet the cast. Me and two others arrived at the RADA studios at about…

Christianity Explored

Over the last few weeks I have been attending a ‘Christianity Explored’ course for teenagers, at my local church.

When I’m having breakfast I usually sit facing away from the window, whereas my mother and brother sit facing the window, so when they spent the whole of the morning talking about snow I had not idea that I was in fact snowing.

The Note-Taker

Today was one of my school’s twice-yearly ‘Academic Review Days’. Basically it means you go into school, chat to a teacher for 15 minutes about how you are doing, and go home again. One of my targets for improvement was to make a summary sheet for each lesson I do. My teacher got a bit…

When asked ‘Do you expect any apocalyptic events to happen on December 21, 2012?’ sixteen percent of Americans said ‘yes’.

How are chairs like Facebook?

As most Facebook users will know, recently Facebook has hit the 1 billion users target. And although this number probably contains scores of users who are: Not real. Duplicate accounts. Pets or soft toys. Dead. Facebook still thought it necessary to launch a brand new advert to mark this occasion. Please note this is only…
