What I got for Christmas

Hello!

I hope any and all of you reading this post had a wonderful festive season, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, I hope you enjoyed the little break you had from work/school/whatever.

Today I am here to share a few gifts I recieved for Christmas. Usually I hate Christmas hauls, as they seem a bit braggy and artificial to me at times. I know a lot of people simply do them because they're requested or because it kinda is the big hot thing for bloggers/YouTubers this time of year, in fact, I think I'm rather late to the party, and it isn't an 'ego' thing. But whatever, if it is, you do you and I'll do me.

For me, this is more to document some of the things I was gifted by my brilliant family and friends, I couldn't ask for better people in my life, except for Daisy Ridley. Daze, (can I call you Daze?), if you're reading this, hmu. 

I have a terrible memory, so this is my visual diary, and also, it's an opportunity to photo some things on my marble vinyl.

The reason most of these pictures are at an angle is because of the bloody shadows cast by everything. I can't control natural light, this is my one and only flaw.



LAPD' 53 is a book about crimes committed in Los Angeles back in 1953, and it's full of grissly pictures of murder scenes and explanations of how these things were committed. It's the type of stuff I always find myself diving into late at night on cracked.com and then I'm not able to sleep. So you know what's better? Having actual physical pictures of mutilated bodies!

Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar



All of my social media has had a huge Star Wars overload lately. I am very sorry if you don't like/care for Star Wars, and that is all I've clogged your timelines with.


This month has been a very huge month for Star Wars, and I celebrated this with a Lego Star Wars advent calendar! I bought this from firebox.com, but I know that you could buy these in store at the Lego store! This cost me £30.

The main reason I'm doing this post full of what I got in it is that I bought a vinyl marble sheet and wanted to try taking pictures on it for the first time, it went...okay. My camera was being temperamental and I'm seeing that a lot of these came out rather dark, and one came out SO BRIGHT.

Oh well, it's all a learning curve.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Spoiler Free Review!



Last night, at 00:01, I sat in a theatre completely sold out, full of Star Wars fans anticipating the start of The Force Awakens, the 7th film in the Star Wars series, and the 7th chronologically.

The film is set 30 years after Return of the Jedi, which left the Empire crushed, however now, the First Order has risen, and the rebel alliance has had to evolve into the Resistance to survive. We follow a mix of fresh faces and well known old friends in the fight to bring peace to the galaxy once more.

My Year in Music

This picture is so grainy, but natural light is a luxury during winter in the UK

Today Spotify released their 'Year in Music' feature, which tells you all about your music preferences throughout the year as well as what was popular globally! This is the first year I've had Spotify for long enough to get the benefit of Year in Music, as last year I only started using Spotify again, after not using it for years, in December.

If you don't like Maroon 5, turn back now.

Christmas Jumpers!

Happy 3rd of December!! 

The glorious month has finally come! It's time to get festive. Except I don't feel majorly festive yet, apart from the fact I've been eating mince pies almost everyday since November 1st, and that I get to wear a Christmas uniform to work! I might change my bedsheets to my Christmas bedsheets actually, that will get me festive. (Yes, I am the type of person who has Christmas bedsheets)

I should really watch a Christmas film to get into the festive spirit, but with The Force Awakens a mere TWO WEEKS away, I am all wrapped up in Star Wars.

So anyway, to get back on track, I have been getting into the festive spirit with Christmas jumpers! I'm a 50 year old Dad at heart, with a student budget, so Primark this time of year is my heaven. But also hell because it's about as busy as you'd expect a store to be at Christmas. To my fellow brethren who will be working retail over Christmas, may the odds be ever in our favour.
