Alien Covenant (No Spoilers Quick Review)

Alien Covenant Trailer I watched Alien Covenant last night and I’m actually not sure what I thought of it. I lie. It left me with some serious questions. I feel like I need to go back and watch it again. I’m sure there are things I missed but, overall, it left me with a feeling of confusion…

Things I am not good at…

…regular blogging. I get all excited and then I forget things and then this happens… Then again, I’m not that good at being regular… well that could be TMI. In order to motivate myself to write more and take more time for me I actually paid for a domain name and everything…now that I’ve actually…

Today I learned that Carrie Fisher died – that strong, sassy, quick witted and freaking talented inspiration from my childhood that I grew to admire more for her openness about her personal struggles. That woman who showed me that I can be a kick ass human being regardless of gender. That woman who reminded us…

Of Tattoos and things…

You know how I talked about crossing things off your bucket list last post? Well, I crossed another thing off. I got a new tattoo. Yep, it’s an origami stegosaur with a splash of water colour.

Things I Learned Yesterday…

I have a bucket list. In fact, I have several bucket lists scattered around on bits of papers and in half written journals. Doesn’t everyone? For the longest time my bucket list was pretty average. Go travelling, write a novel (I’m working on it) learn how to do a handstand (still working on that one…

31 Days of Horror, Bullet Journaling and Stuff

Admittedly 2016 has not been a good year for me. There have been highlights – most notably San Diego Comic Con – which was so awesome. There are words but none of them are intelligible at this present moment. But, generally, 2016 has been a ‘suckfest’ in numerous senses. I guess the gallbladder thing takes…

My gallbladder tried to kill me…

I have the best excuse for not updating… Previously I wrote about my hospital stay here. This was back in April and I was popped on the waiting list for an elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy which was supposed to be done in May … Fast forward to the end of May where I found myself back in hospital….

Thoughts from a teacher – Tuesday edition

I love my job. My students are amazing and ever so complex and I work with some amazing teachers who inspire me everyday. That being said, here are some of the thoughts that have gone through my head today and I’ve only had one class. (Inspired by the #BFC630 English chat on twitter that I…

Never Ending To Do Lists

I write many to do lists. In fact, I write them every day and every day I get some kind of weird pleasure when I cross everything off. The thing is, however, that I never finish the list. I don’t know if it is a teacher thing or a me thing – though sometimes they…

What the heck happened…?

So I was going to regularly update this blog but, unfortunately, my gallbladder had other ideas. On Good Friday, when I had a glorious long weekend spread out in front of me, a mysterious pain started in. At the time I thought it was just indigestion but the pain steadily worsened until I decided that…
