On Becoming Un-Deaf


Excuse the poorly-worded title of this post but there isn't quite a word for being deaf and then being able to hear again - only having been able to in the first place.

Brindleyplace Film Festival 2016


Living in Birmingham now, it feels like there's always something fun and exciting going on - much more than when I lived in the countryside! If I'm honest, one of the number one ways I find out about things going on around here is through Facebook ads for places based on location and yesterday I found one for a Film Festival happening in a part of town that we live quite close to, and as I had a friend from home up and we were looking for something to do, we decided to head down and give it a go.

Turning 19!

I feel like the majority of posts on this blog relate to personal things happening in my life and they're usually quite well received, so I thought I'd come out of my blogging rut to do a post all about my 19th birthday on Friday.

If I'm honest, I'm not particularly major about birthdays. If you've read my post about what I did on my 18th birthday, that may come as a bit of a surprise to you as that one was a pretty big spectacle! But aside from milestone birthdays where my darling mum has a tendency to go a bit OTT, most birthdays tend to go by relatively quietly with this year being not much of an exception.

To The Gym!

For the past year and a half or so, going to the gym has been a fairly staple part of my routine. Sure, some weeks I may end up there 4 times and others I may skip going altogether, but it's something I at least think about doing every week. For a bit of background, I'm useless at every sport ever invented and until I started going to the gym, I did no exercise whatsoever so it's been quite important for me to focus on it, as I like to stay in fairly good shape!

Getting Back To It


I'll be the first to admit that ever since I left to go to University last September, I've been potentially the worst blogger possible. Whilst I'm not fussed about the idea of that causing a stunt in the growth of my blog or anything like that, I am upset it's happened because the past few months have been so eventful and I would have loved to have been documenting them as they have happened, and I'm distinctly aware that I've dropped out of the community of bloggers I'd immersed myself in over the summer almost completely.
So for that, I am sorry.

A Week in Exeter

As some of you may know, I've recently started a new job and part of that means having to travel around the country when you're needed to! This past week, I've been staying down in Exeter so I thought I'd write a post wrapping up all the things that I did.
