Instagram is by far my favorite app. Most of the time I try to make a conscious effort to not live behind a lens. To live in the moment but sometimes I do get a little snappy. I am not a photographer but I like editing my pictures even though sometimes it will take me an age to select an image and fiddle with it, it is a calming hobby.
Any topics concerning the role of women in society – the stigmas and stereotypes and unequal treatment or outdated representation in culture or religion frustrates me. Not only do I have to deal with Western stereotypes of women on a daily basis I have to swallow religious misconceptions people have about Muslim women and Asian cultural stereotypes. However after watching iisuperwomanii vlog channel rant I realised I wasn’t the only one who thought about these things.
Going into this book I didn’t know what to expect. The beginning was too foreign for me to understand but after the first few pages things started to change. We Were Liars is gripping, unique, mysterious and most definitely a page-turner.
Anna and the French Kiss is equal parts cheesy, traditional, unoriginal romantic babble. The average teen love story (minus the Vampires), with kids and problems that are so immanent world peace takes a back seat.
Reasons To Stay Alive by Matt Haig discusses in depth his crippling emotional battle with depression and anxiety/panic disorder. In real candid terms he explains why a disease of the mind left him emotionally, mentally and even physically incapable.
I’ve been blogging for a while now and my biggest struggle has been images. I’m not a photographer, I’m a blogger and a writer. You may have recently noticed that nearly every image on my blog has changed.
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven – has been compared to The Fault in our Stars by many people. But it is not. This book shows how resilient and fragile teenagers are. A book that seriously addresses: suicide, bipolar and depression. Every page your turn in this book could be a moment of someone’s real life and that is never forgotten throughout. If you are used to Disney endings this is not a book for you.
I have finally done it, my employment status is no longer ‘unemployed graduate, doing voluntary roles,’ it has been updated to: digital editorial assistant. I filled out application 1,004, got an interview and the rest is history. I make it sound easy… it was not. But I have published many posts on graduates looking for jobs. This post marks a new wave of posts coming your way: the graduate experience in the workplace.
Although I don’t have a Netflix account my sister-in-law does. Commence procrastination. Sitting in front of the beautiful TV watching Movies and TV Shows until my hearts content. Netflix side effect number 2: lack of sleep.
This year my goal is certainly to read many book – more than 50 at least. However that is a post for another day. I wanted to take a look back at all the book that I have reviewed on the blog. Some I still love just as much but others I’ve come to doubt my own opinion and I’m not so wooed by then anymore. Time changes preference, so lets take a look.
