Stressful Days

Wow, I have been a terrible blogger lately. The worst.  I've been in a bit of a creative rut and motivational rut due to work not having any hours for me and having nothing else really to fill my time whilst I'm back at home from uni. This has lead me to get extremely stressed out pretty damn easily, for example, when I want to play Splatoon online and it won't connect, leading me to get halfway to a panic attack in seconds. Not fun.

About a week ago, I tried to film a video on 'sexual harassment'. It got me reeeeeeaaaal mad at the world and every single gross person on this earth. It left me feeling crummy all day and that video will never see the light of day because it was very, very rage-y. I'll be refilming in a few weeks when I think I can get my points across in a better way.

So I took the rest of the day as a chill day to get all the anger and sadness and bad feelings out of my system.

Here are just a few of the things I did:

Summer in the City 2015

I'm so sorry blog, I am so sorry I haven't posted anything in a while!!

I was at Summer in the City (SITC) this weekend, which is the UK's biggest YouTube and online media convention. This was my second year attending and, I have to say, this year one hundred percent topped the last.

I want to write a lot about it, but I think the best way of sharing it with you is via the vlogs I made this weekend. I absolutely love to vlog but life isn't generally interesting enough for me to go around filming my daily life- no one wants to see me watching Agent Carter in clothes I already wore the other day whilst pigging out on a bar of Milka my sister brought back from Italy. Ironically, I did kinda vlog that as I'm testing out a week in clips thing. Oops.

Anyway, here's my three SITC 2015 vlogs. I had an amazing weekend with a lot of amazing friends and I hope I can get that across to you guys. There was a handy little playlist but I can't work out how to embed that one to blogger. I TRIED GUYS, I PROMISE.

Thanks for reading, I'll be back with some real posts soon. I still need to post my LFCC haul, you know...that convention I went to a month ago. Oops.

Desk desk work space desk

I was actually going to write a different blogpost today, but it turned out I hadn't taken the pictures for that like I had thought, nope I'd actually taken pictures of my desk. So that's what I'm now writing about.

I have had this desk for YEEAAAARS but the other day, I suddenly decided to change it all about. I wish I'd taken a before photo, I'm sure there's tons buried on some external harddrive somewhere. I kinda neglect this desk nowadays, as I only come home from uni from time to time, but I am here over summer, so I did a little rearrange, just to make me feel a but more motivated and to change my environment just a tiny bit.

James & friends

Today we're going to write about YouTuber Jim Chapman's new stationery range- James & friends. I'm a long time viewer of Jim's, and he has been one of my favourite YouTubers for years now, I actually met him last year!

Jim recently announced his stationery range, with more to come! I adore stationery so I, for lack of better terms, lost my shit at this announcement. It's also not to overtly 'YouTuber merch', it's a new brand, a new image, and it's just so great to look at.

I purchased 3 pieces of the range from Paperducks, and I intend to get more! Probably the entire range, if I'm honest, but I'm trying to save all of the money I earn from work for travelling next year after I graduate from uni!

Anyway, let's get onto it!

Reading, Read and to Read #5

Hello and welcome to Reading, Read and To Read! A series that was intended to be monthly, but I haven't posted one since April...oops. Essentially I go through all of the books I am reading, have read or that I'm going to read!!

Though, this one is going to be the last in this format, I'm going to stop including repeat books on the 'to read' list unless they are the actual next book I'm going to read, since The Help has been on here forever lmao. I'll get round to it.
