Welcome, and thanks for taking the time to check me out! 🙂 First things first, I’d like to point out that I enjoy writing about my interests. I don’t claim to be an expert in anything, or capable of offering any astounding insights into the media or any other serious issue. Practice makes perfect, so… Read More Welcome
Major spoilers ahead, naturally. If this game was anything, it was a lesson in disappointment. I managed to get through about eight hours playtime before giving up and watching the rest online. Now I’m wishing I’d waited, watched another player before buying the game. I wouldn’t have wasted the money. TLOU2 was the first… Read More TLOU2: A rant of a reimagining.
I have the capacity to be a huge foodie. It’s rare that I actually cook, mind you, but put a plate of great food in front of me and I’ll praise you to the moon and back. One of the best things about China was that eating out was so cheap, it was practically expected… Read More I’m just here for the food
Coming back to the UK has resulted in a lot of sorting. Trying to find a place for my things whilst throwing away stuff that hasn’t seen the light of day for years. Eventually got round to unpacking, found my external hard drive, and wouldn’t you know it, but I had a couple of somethings… Read More Backlog
Warning: Haven’t written in a while, so emotional backlog rollercoaster ahead. I love how sometimes writing comes back to you after years like a long lost friend. Many, many things have happened since my last entry, and as you can imagine, life stood firmly in the way of getting any writing for pleasure posted. My… Read More I got a job! And other stuff.
Got something completely random for you today. Having a writing research day, and decided to have a look at some of the prompt posts I’ve seen around. Found one, sat down, spent five minutes writing… something. And here it is. Likely an echo from a time long gone – how else would it come so… Read More Letter
Now, I know what you’re thinking; this one doesn’t write too much, is there any point in following or trying to contact them? I do in fact, try to write a little everyday, and am unfortunately cursed with extreme criticism over what it is I’m typing. Like, how many times in the past has this… Read More Minimal Maintenance
Holy crap. I’ve just binged a show that literally only one person has even mentioned to me, ever. To my memory, I’ve only seen it advertised on Netflix, and hardly to an extent where I felt the need to give it the 15 minute rule. If like me, you’ve waited seven years after its initial… Read More Black Mirror review
One’s first Christmas away from home – that is, the country in which you’ve spent a good twenty Christmases – is not an experience you’re likely to forget. Coming to Shenzhen last year was a difficult enough transition, but spending Christmas away from anything familiar almost broke my heart with homesickness. That’s right – who… Read More Merry Christmas!
If you know how to say ‘cheese omelette’ in french, it’s because of Dexter. – (this one actually popped up in a cheese-related search, and thus reappeared a week later whilst trying to teach a class. Helpful.) If the zombie apocalypse happened tomorrow, we’d be screwed. Most of us walk around with earphones in… Read More Random Thoughts
It’s just ending the first month back to school. Next week will be Mid Autumn Festival, wherein the schools will close, and I, along with many other foreign teachers living in Shenzhen, will get one wonderful week off. There are many reasons I enjoy teaching here, rather than in the UK. Past plans for the… Read More Appreciation
