Dear God, Top Gear’s back

I would not say I’m a massive fan of Top Gear, I’ve certainly never sat down and properly enjoyed viewing a whole episode. However if I’m flicking through the channels and come across a Top Gear episode I sometimes stay on it and watch it. I’m not a fan of the whole show, I don’t…

A Mock Interview

Oh I am getting old aren’t I as it was only one week ago that I had my first interview. Not a proper jobby interview just a mock one at school but still very daunting. We had known about it for month, the date January 23rd being branded into our brains however when its still…

Spot of Revision

Ok well hello to all you guys who either really love my blog and are checking for an update and also those of you who have been hoodwinked by Google and won’t even read this as you’ve probably gone already. It has occurred to me frequently over the last week that I haven’t blogged much…

A bad blogger?

Is it completely unreasonable for someone with no knowledge in the fanciful world of blogging to unreasonably call me a bad blogger? I shall answer your question; yes it is. Today a boy I will not name (M*t***w *o***s) insulted me with the accusation that I am a ‘bad blogger’ which very offended me. I…

Football in the snow

For the most part of the 14 years I have been on this earth, I imagined that standing in a field, soaking and covered in snow while a bunch of lunatic teenagers run around you kicking a football as if their life depended on it would be quite a horrible experience. However when you are…

Window Art

I always say (well actually I don’t) that it’s the small things in life that get you really excited. Take this Friday at Explorers. It was a cold day and, what do you know, the windows are all steamed up and, being the lonely adolescents me and my friends are, we naturally started drawing on…

Some Great-Great Grandparents

Whilst working on my family tree, I found a photo of my father’s father’s father’s parents. In other words my great-great grandparents. There they are in the middle. It is very curious as it is a similar kind of photo as another one of my mother’s mother’s mother’s parents, another lot of my great-great grandparents….

The Battle of Helmsdeep

It’s been an everlasting conundrum for me as I cannot seem to work out whether I prefer the book or film versions of the Lord of the Rings. The film is more concise and the action scenes are better (well of course, you can see them) however the book gives you all the background description…

Cabin Pressure Series 4 Recording 3

Yesterday I fulfilled one of my long time dreams. I met one of my favourite actors, my role model, my hero. Yesterday I met BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH. But let’s start from the beginning, we can’t just skip to the main event. Me and two friends had journeyed up to London for the recordings of the last…

Smashed bottle of Tipp-Ex

Whilst hanging around the RADA studios, venue of the Cabin Pressure recordings, my friend and I spotted a strange occurrence in the middle of the road. This occurrence, which from a distance looked like bird poo, turned out to be a smashed bottle of Tipp-Ex. I mean what’s going on there? A bottle, lying in…

Gosh, It’s 2013!

It’s a bit weird that my first post of 2013 is one announcing that is 2013. In my opinion there is nothing special about today that marks it out from yesterday apart from the change of one numeral in our date. New Year could have been chosen to happen in mid-summer or perhaps the beginning…
