Getting Long In The Tooth: A Reflection on Four Years of Blogging

If you pay any attention to my blog at all then you’d know that I’m a big fan of reflecting on time that has gone by and looking back, so I’m sure you’ll be equally as surprised as I am that I was blissfully unaware that today marked the four year anniversary of when I set up this blog; four years since I started trying to put my unique stamp on the World via the World Wide Web.

Podcast to Pimlico: Looking Back on 2016

I look forward to this moment every year, the moment where I get to sit down and look back on the year that’s gone by. Usually, the process of looking back is pretty quick because I feel like I haven’t done all too much, but this year is rather the opposite. I’ve done and achieved so much in 2016 that I wonder how in the World I even managed to fit it all in and that makes me very happy indeed.

Hard To Say Goodbye: A Reflection on the latter half of ‘Opening Doors’

While I’m definitely upset that Opening Doors has come to an end for now, I’m kind of excited to never have to look at the artwork for it again: when season two rolls around next year, there will – thankfully – be new artwork. But no matter what small hang-ups I had with the podcast, to say I enjoyed the experience of pulling season one together would be an understatement to say the least.

Party Time! Looking Back on September & October 2016

Going to back to school takes away a lot of time that I once had to do things in summer (obviously) and as a result, I really didn’t feel like I’d done enough stuff in September alone to warrant an entire reflective blog post on the month. Other than putting Opening Doors out into the world and going back to school, there wasn’t really a whole lot of stuff that I felt was worthy of sharing.

To Vlog or not to Vlog: My Love/Hate Relationship with YouTube

I have the biggest love/hate relationship with YouTube and I find it so hard to express it properly. Whenever I feel like it’s been too long since I last uploaded a video, I panic and try to quickly make one and then I remember that I don’t think I want to make one… but maybe, I do want to make one?… As I’m sure you can see, my love/hate war that is going on here is currently all guns blazing.

The Lone Ranger: How Time Taught Me to Appreciate Solo Theatregoing

I go to the theatre alone a lot these days. Not necessarily because I have no one to go with though, but more because I actually don’t mind going on my own anymore. There was once a time when I was terrified to go to a performance of Close to You because the idea of going to the theatre alone repulsed me, but the past few months have shown me that it is definitely the way to go.

Non-Stop: Looking Back on August 2016

At the start of this Summer, I made a point of saying that I would make sure I didn’t waste a single day of the time I had and I can most definitely look back and say that I did just that. This Summer, I’ve been driven the entire length of the country and back again, I started work on my new podcast coming to iTunes next month and I held my big summer party amongst other things… it’s been mad.

A Break from London

Normally, you can’t pull me away from London; I’m so used to spending so much time up there nowadays to see a new show or celebrate something that it’s become like second home to me. So when this past month went by and I came to realise that I hadn’t once made the train journey into the Big Smoke, I realised that I missed the environment much more than I’d come to realise.
