Playlist of March

Hello everyone!

This month has been an amazing month for music, and I really wanted to get this out while I had time. By that I mean whilst I wait for my dad to come pick me up from university because I don’t think I can carry this suitcase full of textbooks any further than straight to the car.

Anyway yes, I’ve gotten into tons of new music this month that I cannot wait to share with you right here!

You can check out last month’s here.

Our Own House (Album) – Misterwives

I started this month with listening to Misterwives, a band I’d never listened to before! Their album, Our Own House, is so upbeat and uplifting, it’s been really great to listen to on the way to and from university. The titular song, ‘Our Own House’ is my favourite, I also really like ‘Best I Can Do’.

Reading, Read and to Read #3

Hello everyone!!

It’s now Easter break, which is great, even though it means revision! I don’t have a job at the minute, so that means I’m going to have plenty of free time. Sadly though, my flat in Liverpool is much more photogenic than my bedroom at home. It will do for a few pictures and videos though!

Today it’s time for March’s Reading, Read and to Read! These are my favourite posts to make, I’m not entirely sure why, but this month I have been reading loads and I’ve completely fell in love with it again. Though, I read in bed before I go to sleep, so my sleep has been suffering because I keep reading until 1am when I need to get up early- oops!

If you want to catch up on last month’s, here’s the link.

Sometimes you’re a caterpillar

Hello everybody,

I am sorry for my lack of posts right now, it’s the last week of the semester before the Easter break, and it’s been hectic! It’s deadlines everywhere, plus I had a filling yesterday and my face is aching all over because of it.

So today I thought I would post a video that I think you all should watch:

It explains intersectionality and privilege in an easy to understand, and visually enjoyable way to watch!

This video is only 3 minutes long, and I think it’s a very important thing to watch, and share.

Privilege is a thing that is very easy to overlook, or not even realise you have. We don’t come out of the womb socially aware after all, it takes time for us to realise what the world, and society is like.

If you want to see more of Chescaleigh and Kat Blaque, click on their names to be taken to their Twitter accounts!

Thanks for reading, see you later!

Cards to brighten your day

A few weeks ago, after I (finally) received all of my coursework and exam results from this past January, my sister Suzanne posted me this card. The design is great, and she also says that it looks like me. Which it kinda does, only I have the top of my skull.

Cards are a small, but kind gesture. I always like to make sure that I get a card that really fits a gift, or at least I’ve recently decided to do that since cards are great and tie it all together. Plus they can mean a lot to a person. That card Suzanne sent me reminds me that I can get through uni, and I can do all of this work, even when I have days like today, when it feels impossible to get through some of the work.

Urgh, that got cheesy and sentimental real quick.

Here are just a few examples of cards that I’ve bought for others/had bought for me. They’re awesome, if I do say so myself.

Especially the ‘Everything’s gonna be super duper’ card, which again was from Suzanne.

Damn son, she knows he way around a card shop.

She gave this to me when I first moved to university, and it comforts me when I think about how uncertain my entire future is.

Now I need to take a shower to feel clean again after spilling all these fillings into a blogpost.
