Nintendo Direct Predictions

Tomorrow is the first Nintendo Direct of 2015. If you don’t know what that is,it’s an online presentation by Nintendo which reveals plans/games/release dates/whatever for the next couple of months, though sometimes there’s a long term announcement made in them.

I love these things, I try to watch them all live, if I can. They’re sometimes on at bizarre times,(i.e for those in the UK, this one is on at 2pm on a Wednesday?!) but more often than not I manage to make them.

It’s not just watching them, Twitter and Tumblr explode and a new meme seems to be created every. single. time.

Here are my predictions for tomorrow’s Direct:

Bag Essentials

I have well and truly been bitten by the blogging bug over the past few days, I just can’t stop thinking of ideas and wanting to make posts.

This is a post that, if you read a lot of blogs, you’ve probably seen regurgitated and repackaged over and over and over. And if you follow a lot of those ‘life tips/hacks’ Twitter accounts, like I do (because Pinterest is just a bit too much effort), you’ll have had your fill of bag tips.

When thinking about this post, I thought about everything that I put in my bag when I’m going on a long train journey. In general, not all of these things are on my bag, but it usually is a combination of most of the items.

Here’s my signature bag:

If we’re gonna be techinical, I guess I should call it a ‘faux leather satchel’ from River Island. Is that even correct?

The Walking Dead Season 5B Trailer

So yesterday the trailer for season 5 b of The Walking Dead dropped, watch it here:

We need to talk about this A LOT. First of all, AMC, why did you make the trailer US only and wait for others to make it available to us in the rest of the world? When we get the show less than 24 hours after the US, it seems bizarre that we can’t have the trailer.

And whilst this does just seem like a lot of promotional footage that we won’t see play out in the actual episode themselves, it’s still a great sneak peek of what’s to come, and it looks like there’s much more time on the road left for our survivors.

By the looks of Rick’s beard and Carol’s hair, there’s going to be a time skip between the mid-season finale and the return of the show.

And there are a few characters, Father Gabriel, Carl and Judith),missing from this trailer. Though when you think about it, the reason is obvious. Father Gabriel is pretty useless when killing walkers and using weapons, and so wouldn’t fit at all in this trailer (although Eugene is there!). Judith can’t do anything with, you know, being a baby and all, and someone needs to carry her around, and who better than her big brother. But does this mean Tyreese is off of babysitting duty? That seems to be his role in the group at the minute.

Also, I don’t think bullet shells dropping on a leaf covered forest floor make that noise. But I’ll let that slide.

Finally, it looks COLD. For once, is winter not being skipped over in a timeskip like it has been TWICE before, between seasons 2 and 3, and it seems like between season 3 and 4, it was winter. I’m assuming this as it was clearly autumn towards the end of season 3, and season 4 picks up in what I’m assuming is spring!

I cannot wait until February 9th when The Walking Dead returns to Fox in the UK, for you lucky devils in the US, you get it February 8th!

Let’s just hope AMC don’t spoil the entire world this time!

Read, Reading and To Read

So you know how I said there would be no more posts until my exams finished…oops. I finished my coursework, I’ve moved on to working for my exam, but I had a burst of motivation, and here we are!

This is an idea that hit me a few hours ago, and it’s something that I’d like to do maybe every couple of months, or maybe every month to check my progress of how much I’m reading. If you read my New Years resolutions post, you’ll know that I want to read more. I used to read SO much and I want to get back into that place! So if I track myself, maybe I will!

Here are the books that I have either recently read, or I’m currently reading them, or I intend to read them soon!

Coursework and exams


Sorry for my lack of posts at the minute, it’s January, which means a hell of a lot of coursework and an exam! I’m a bit busy working to allow myself to make posts, which I desperately am craving to do. I’ve been bitten by the blog motivation bug, and I can’t wait to start putting my all into these posts!

Until then, I’m sorry but I’ll be gone for another week and a half!

Hope you’re all having a great 2015 thus far!
