Sucked in!

Posted on

Well I’ve done exactly what I said I wouldn’t do and made a Pinterest account. As if I wasn’t wasting enough time on various sites I now have that extra worry about finding that perfect picture to add to my boards. So now I’m probably looking a little bit stupid after slating social networking sites on a previous blog post entitled ‘To Pinterest or not to Pinterest’ and considering I now use facebook a lot more since I wrote that blog too.

I only joined late last night but already have an impressive array of pictures of ‘True Blood’, ‘the Vampire Diaries’ and Les Miserables cast members. The best thing is I’m not entirely sure what I’m doing. So if you are even remotely interested you can check out my pinterest page HERE and if any of you are using pinterest please leave a link to your page in the comments below.

2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

Well thank you great stats helper monkey’s!

Despite getting the most ever views on my post ‘A Super Disappointment’ I had absolutely NO likes on it. The infamous crown of thorns subject caused quite a stir. Yes it was rather controversial and I wrote it in haste but did I really deserve the one (quite childish if I may add) comment that I received from a Sarah Jane Willow who obviously thought my opinion counts for others. I’m sorry to say I can give back just as much as I get. But can I just say that what I include in my blog posts is a matter of interest and personal taste and  doesn’t necessarily reflect the opinions of others. I’m just a mere speck in the blogosphere. I do respect the opinions of other and encourage people to leave comments on my posts (more comments please) if they are constructive and don’t launch into abusive drivel.

I would like to say a huge thank you to the biggest commenter of my blog posts the lovely Miss Hayley who also writes some fantabulous blog posts so please check her out.

to all my visitors/followers please don’t pass by without a like or a comment as it’s nice to know that people exist out there once in a while 🙂

with much appreciation

My 2012 Highlights

Posted on

2012 has been yet another great year for me overall and I’m extremely grateful for that. I have had great fun with many good friends along the way. I have managed to do a little travelling with Spain and Barcelona being my main holiday this year which included lots of great excursions. Disneyland Paris was somewhere I’ve always wanted to go and it certainly made me feel like a kid again… everyone needs a little magic in their lives. My long weekend to Devon was a welcomed break from the norm and left me feeling refreshed.

I attended three fantastic conventions with this year being my first experience of conventions too. Bitten 3 weekend, the Entertainment Media show and the London Film and Comic con all had some brilliant guests. Other highlights included seeing Michael McIntyre at the o2, The Harry Potter studio tour and the amazing annual West End Live which I will no doubt be at again next year.

Obviously my brother’s wedding has to be one of the biggest highlights of this year. It was a lovely occasion and one that I will remember for a long time to come. Meeting the coolest couple on YouTube Charles and Ali Trippy at the Contiki meetup in London with my niece was exciting and I hope to meet more of the YouTubers that I watch next year. Seeing one of my favourite bands Evanescence was long-awaited and I’m pleased to say that I have actually finally seen them live.

I tried my hand at poetry and really enjoyed it so I plan to submit more poetry into any online magazines that will accept them and see where I get. I completely failed on my other blogs for reviews and art but I’ve decided to just add everything I do to this blog in the future. Oh, and that book I bought back in January is still unfinished… what am I like!

7 things for 2013

Posted on

I got the idea for this on ‘Day Zero Project’s’ blog http://dayzeroproject.tumblr.com/post/14316970136/this-year-at-day-zero-were-taking-an-alternative it’s an alternative to new years resolutions. So as 2013 is fast approaching I thought I’d better get myself in gear and start thinking about what I want out of my year.

  1. Learn how to… stay calm when under pressure at work.
  2. Start… working out to tone myself up.
  3. Stop… thinking about the past too much.
  4. Take a vacation to… somewhere I haven’t been in the UK.
  5. Find… a flat and start being a grown up.
  6. Try… and regain the independence I lost when I moved back in with my parents.
  7. Be more… open and personal in my blog posts

Words of Inspiration

Posted on

As I was clearing out my bedroom, I came across a little framed poem that an ex work colleague gave me just before I started my animal management course a few years ago. I think the words are very true so I thought I would share it with those of you about to embark on any new ventures in 2013.

With a little bit of courage

and a little bit of strength

a little bit of hope

and you can go to any length

Remember to be positive

no matter what you do

just trust in your abilities

they’ll always see you through

Unknown poet

Merry Christmas… Spread the love!

Posted on

Before I head to my local church for carols and midnight mass I just wanted to say Merry Christmas to all my followers and anyone else who just happens to stumble upon this post. Tonight I will be sending prayers up to heaven for the Connecticut victims and will be thinking of all the soldiers that can’t make it home to their families this Christmas. On a more personal note I shall also be thinking of the loved ones that have passed away and are deeply missed by my family.

I think everyone should just take a moment to remember people who have sadly left us just so they know we haven’t forgotten about them. It’s also a good time to appreciate how important existing family and friends are to us and wherever you are in the world you are enjoying your Christmas with the ones you love.
