What 2021 Has Taught me, and my New Years Resolutions


No, I do not have too much faith in New Year’s resolutions either, because often we think we are going to keep them, then we find it becomes too much, or even circumstances change making it practically impossible (2020 anyone). Therefore, at least from my experience, it is better to make resolutions which are not quite as specific, so that they can evolveContinue reading “What 2021 Has Taught me, and my New Years Resolutions”

I’m Back!!!


Hello, so after a longer than anticipated break, I have decided to finally return to this blog. Long story short, I have been pretty busy over the past few months, and while this has been the case in the past, I found that keeping up with this blog was getting a bit much for me while I was firstly working full time during the summer, andContinue reading “I’m Back!!!”

Are 9-5 Jobs Coming to an End?


Anyone else hate the prospect of a boring 9-5 office job? Perhaps instead you would prefer to be an entrepreneur, but in that case you probably should realise that you will be putting in more hours than you may think. Although there again, with the changing technology, and thanks to covid, anything is possible…

Were They Right to Cancel Exams?


Sigh, Sixth form and school. The subject that anyone who would have been due to take A levels or GCSEs this summer would want to back away from. However this is pretty hard to avoid as exams have been cancelled for the second time in a row, just a couple of weeks after they wereContinue reading “Were They Right to Cancel Exams?”

Personal Update


Hello! So here is another personal update, on the grounds that they are easier to write than the other kinds of posts which I do, and because I actually do have something relevant to say. So in recent weeks I haven’t been my best (at the time of writing this) but as I am writingContinue reading “Personal Update”

New Years Message


2020 has been a hell of the year, and I am sure that all of you reading this cannot wait too toss it, somewhere. But I think we can learn from what has passed, and I hope that 2021 will be a better year for us all.

Do Grades Really Matter?


Hellooo, so I am going to give you a bit of background information before I begin with the post. So currently I am in year 13, and recently we have received our predicted grades, which has led to many people, predicted higher than myself, being rather stressed and upset over theirs. And while they canContinue reading “Do Grades Really Matter?”

Is a Gap Year Really Worth It??


Now most years, year 13s would picture a gap year as almost some tropical fantasy, going from beach to beach, clambering over numerous rocky mountains and discovering amazing wildlife. Including as newts, while probably getting as pissed as one! But of course, it is going to be expensive. Very expensive. And unless you have very rich parents or parents who are going to spoil you sick, or that you are doing so much paid work that you would end up failing your A levels, Period. But this year, even with unlikely prospect of families offering up a lot of money, we have another limitation. Covid-19. Meaning that our gap year would most likely be spent watching everyone else go off to university while we are stuck at home. Sigh…

Can our Stationery Fiasco be explained?


whenever I walk past somewhere like paperchase, I cannot resist taking a wander in and looking at all of the various pens, notepads and rubbers (as well as the Boris Johnson dog toys) just to see what they have on offer. But how healthy is our new found love of stationery?
