Tim Vine’s Chat Show Recording – Series 1

Last year my friends and I attended the recording of ‘Time Vine’s Chat Show’ a half hour comedy made for BBC Radio 2’s annual Comedy Showcase. The show was an immediate success, with the BBC investing in a full series of the show to air this summer (now on BBC Radio 4). We returned to hear…

Walking Dead/Breaking Bad link Confirmed

There’s been a long-standing theory that AMC’s two biggest shows; The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, are set in the same multi-verse, with Breaking Bad set in the years preceding Walking Dead’s zombie apocalypse. There’s some (but not much) evidence to support this, including: Walt’s blue meth appears in a bag of Merle’s drugs The…

Some Hipster Place

Its Easter. Sweet, that means lots of lovely chocolate and church services and tweeting birds and stuff. Also, it means holidays, so I went out with me friends to have coffee in some hipster cafe (reminiscent of a filthy drug den). That’s your update over.

Reading University – English Literature Applicant Day

A Girl Called Jane (Creative Writing)

Once upon a time, in a land only dissimilar to our own in the extent to which its name is Ireland, there lived a young gypsy girl called Jane. At the mere age of twelve, Jane was fascinated by the detailed complexities of nature, from the tuneful bleating of mountain sheep, to the pubescent mood…

Duke of Edinburgh Expedition – Gold

In 2012 I experienced a DofE hike for the first time. And bless my naïve little soul, for I thought walking through ankle deep mud and being unable to tell one small-to-middle-sized farm from another was the worst experience I had ever gone through. But soon my composure was shaken. In 2013 I completed DofE…

Belonging (Poem)

I walked alone that hell cold night into the arms of dawn.   I walked alone no road in sight the player turned the pawn.   Engulfed by the winds ahead yet never look behind.   Harrowed by the ones I fled fate not yet resigned.   Belonging wanted, wished, not found amongst that godly…
