Most Irritating Film and TV Characters

Ever watch a movie or a show and think ‘god I want to shoot x character in the face’? Yeah me too. Here’s a list of fictional characters I can’t stand.

Girls, Boys and Body Image

Body image concerns men and women; not one or the other more. But what really goes through our heads?

Sexuality: a few things I've learned

When it comes to sexuality, certain societal beliefs are held about the way men and women are when it comes to sex and relationships. I am just one person, and I'm not a 'conventional' person anyway; I'm a freaky weirdo who barely relates to the majority of the human population. But through my not-that-long-life-lived of experiences coming from an odd and troubled girl who isn't yet 21, here are a few 'thoughts' (and probably summarizing some of my other posts).

School, Uni, and all that.

This is an honest blog by an honest girl. I think it's important to be honest about yourself in life, and for some reason I find honesty much easier sitting behind a computer screen than staring at someone face-to-face. It is my honest feeling that I really don't care that much about having a degree and never really have. What I want to do in life doesn't require a degree. So why the fuck am I at uni?

Reviewing Louise O'Neill

In 2015 I discovered this novel in my sixth form's library called 'Only Ever Yours.' I picked it up, thinking it looked vaguely interesting, and did not expect how much I would obsessive over it and how it consumed me. I was so bowled over by this incredible novel that I emailed the lovely Irish author telling her how much I had adored it, and she emailed me back (yay!) in a brief series of emails. I became super excited for her next novel 'Asking for It', which I thought was good but horribly upsetting. Her latest book came out days ago and I finished it yesterday. This is a post all about my take on the works of Louise O'Neill. Note: may contain spoilers.

I'm sick of feminism.

I'm sick of feminism. I sick of those that are pro-feminism and those that are anti-feminism. I'm sick of hearing that 'feminism is about gender equality' and equally that 'feminism is cancer.' I'm sick of every female-oriented story or film or show being classed as 'feminist.' I'm sick of seeing it and hearing it all over the media. I'm sick of 'girl power' and International Women's Day.

Reviewing 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame'

My favourite Disney film is The Hunchback of Notre Dame. I think it is an incredible movie that takes my breath away every time I watch it. As a kid it used to scare me according to my parents (can't say I'm surprised), but as an adult I find it captivating. This long post shall explain why.

Why are people such cunts?

So I was watching one of my favourite movies; The Inbetweener’s Movie. And yeah, I know it’s just a movie and a TV show and it’s meant to be funny and take the piss and I take everything far too seriously. But there’s this scene where two of the main characters (Simon and Will) try to sell some of Simon’s clothes so he can make some extra money. (They’re on holiday in Malia, Greece).

In the opening chapter of Grace Jones' autobiography, she states 'I love secrets.' I am the opposite. I can't stand keeping things to myself, and I'm not very good at it. Life is lonely enough as it is without holding things in. I'm the kind of person whereby everything is opened up on a plate; nothing to hide.

Top 100 Favourite Songs

BLURGH. There are too many. But off the top of my head, this a list of my top 100 favourite songs. Unlike my other 'favourite list' posts, I'm not going to put the whys and what have yous as I'd probably say similar things for all of them, and otherwise this would go on forever. Note: this is not in order; I haven't ranked these in terms of most to least favourite - that would be impossible as I adore all of them and wouldn't know where to put what. I simply wrote these in order of what came to mind.

Childhood vs Adulthood

A common heard phrase is 'childhood is the best time of your life.' I would be lying if I said my childhood was all miserable and I hated every minute of it, as that wasn't the case at all. However, although I was a happy kid, I often longed to grow up, and as I have entered young adulthood I am aware why.

Zari's Top 15 Sexiest Male Celebs

This is a continuation of my superficiality to rate famous people on their physical attractiveness (in no particular order). Straight women and gay/bisexual men; enjoy.
