Day 21: favourite TV show & why

Ok so for some reason I created 2 posts for day 14 & I’ve only just noticed, hence the jump from day 19 to day 21.

Just thought I’d clear this up for my own peace of mind…

(I’ll start the post now)

I’ve come to the conclusion that I watch far too many tv shows. I actually end up forgetting about them until 2 seasons later, when I stumble across a spoiler & vow to never watch the show again.

With that being said I would have to come clean and declare Agents of shield as my favourite tv show.

Yes it is the only show that I’m actually up to date with,

And yes, I didn’t give up halfway through season 1 like the majority did.

Agents of shield is literally out of this world (no pun intended for my season 5 watchers lol). The earlier seasons were purposely intertwined with the various marvel films that were released during that same two year period & has since found its own two feet.

There’s not much I can say without spoiling it. However I can say this: if you ever have the opportunity to watch it (from season one) then please do.

I promise you won’t regret it

Day 19: is education important?

The importance of education depends on what type of educational bracket we are talking about.

We can be educated in many different forms such as spiritually, mentally, etc… However in the society we live in today, we determine education to be a process of learning that takes place within a structured institution. We are taught to pass exams in subjects that we may never use within our adult lives, whereas the areas we actually need to be educated in such as buying a house and having financial stability remain untouched.

Even after all this, I will still argue the fact that education in all its forms remains important. Without formal education we are deemed to be ‘failures’ within society as the system is set up to make it increasingly difficult to progress without it.

Tunes on a Tuesday 01: Session 32

I’ve decided to work on a new segment called ‘Tunes on a Tuesday’.
Every Tuesday i’ll be sharing my favorite tracks with you both old and new, in addition to introducing you to some new gems.

Lets kick off the first week with Summer Walker

Summer Walker signed to LVRN, has had a postive start to the year with her latest single DEEP, being featured on Apple Music’s ‘New Music’ playlist.

However the song that I was drawn to was this one (session 32).

In an era of heavy production, the simplicity of this track really sets it apart from the rest & leaves you to feel the raw emotions on show by Summer Walker.

Day 18: My BIGGEST regret

GraphicDesignIn my 22 years on this planet, I seem to have many more regrets than years lived.

However my biggest regret has to be me not believing in myself & following my dreams.

From a young age I always wanted to act and that dream has never stopped following me up until this day. For me acting was somewhat of a therapy session. I was able to convey my other-wised bottled up emotions through another character, which helped me to channel my feelings into what could be regarded as a positive space.

I was so set on continuing my love for acting that I planned to study it at degree level. Unfortunately this plan was cut short. My parents never had the opportunity to go to university, so I was pretty much clueless on the whole process & had to figure out a lot of things by myself. This is where everything went down hill.

I started to seek out advice and opinions from others who had gone to University. All of whom told me the same thing; “Don’t study drama, you cant do anything aside from being a drama teacher… it limits your options”. I was told to do something of more “substance”. So my indecisiveness kicked in & I jumped from Fashion buying and merchandising to International relations and business studies. It was literally a couple of days before my application was due that I settled on Business management and Media, Communications & Culture at Keele University. The grades to get into Keele were BBC, so I applied for a couple of foundation courses at the University of East Anglia and Oxford Brookes.

Somehow I managed to get ACC in my ALevels & was accepted into Keele. Clearly this wasn’t a well thought out plan, as I soon discovered that Keele was in the middle of nowhere, which meant that I couldn’t travel home regularly, yet alone travel to London each week for acting classes which I had hoped to sign up for 😦

My time at uni wasn’t the best, being an introvert didn’t really help much either but I felt as though I needed to stick it out. So I did and here I am just reflecting on the dream that I once had.

No matter how proud I seem to make everyone I’ll always be a failure to myself.

Day 17: What book can you read over again?

If you know me you know that I love reading, so much so that I plan on building a library in my future house.

The thing I love about books is that they have the ability to transport you to another dimension. You get the chance to escape your own world for a while & live vicariously through someone else, which in some circumstances (if not all) is a welcoming idea.

Ways to live forever by Sally Nicholls is one of many books that I could read over & over again. It is based on a cancer battling 11 year old boy, who is on the journey of completing his dead best friend’s bucket list. Sounds a little familiar right? Released around 10 years ago,you can really understand how the theme & writing style of this book, has gone on to inspire many authors of this generation.

I don’t want to ruin anything in case you go on to read it but be prepared to cry. Not just a little sob here & there but a full on ugly Kim cry 😂
