Wow. It's six days before Christmas and where has this year gone? I'm breaking my blog writing sabbatical to furiously tap about at my laptop keyboard a) because I'm bored as hell and b) I'm inspired. 2017 has been one hell of a year; in both good and bad ways. This blog is kinda selfish,… Continue reading How Can it Be?
I've been a little flakey with blog posts over the past few weeks. Not uploading every Monday, Wednesday, Friday or writing blog posts that don't compare to my normal wit and charm. I've been a bit flakey with these blogs because...well... I don't really have a reason. I would open up my laptop, sit in… Continue reading Flakey

I hope you're all having a fabulous holiday celebrating however you may be celebrating.

I love being able to work with fantastic teachers and generally enthusiastic kids and being able to positively impact these kids lives.… Continue reading Thinking I’m Funny

We’re a week into the New Year and what amazing things have I been up too? Nothing. I spent New Year’s Eve saying goodbye to my sister as she left Aberystwyth, drinking made-up cocktails involving vodka and rum and watching all the crappy New Year’s Eve TV. I was planning on drinking away the sorrows… Continue reading Change is Afoot | 2016
I’ve had a lot of spare time since the university term finished. Time to binge watch TV series on Netflix, edit the student mission videos, and to think. I have spent a lot of time thinking. I think at other times in the year but when you have no commitments, no obligations, you think more.
