Secrets


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.

Daenerys Targaryen: Hero or Villain?


I love Daenerys; she is my Queen, my Khaleesi, my babe. I think she's one of the best women in Westeros, along with Arya Stark and Brienne of Tarth. But whilst she can be viewed as a feisty badass who climbs from zero to hero, she takes some pretty ruthless actions. Of course she has to; no one can take the Iron Throne by being miss sweetness-and-light. To survive in that world, you have to do some awful things.

Benefits of being single


I hate Valentine's Day. Of course I do; I've never had a Valentine. For some reason I've never managed to be in a relationship around Feb 14th. Lucky me eh. Still, this post isn't going to be a bitter complaint about how Valentine's Day is a reminder that for yet another year you have no one to cuddle up with in the movies. Here are some reasons as to why being single can be a positive thing.

Britain vs America


They're two of the most powerful nations in the Western world. The little island conquered 75% of the world, and the giant continent still has the world's most powerful economy (although China and Japan aren't far behind, if not surpassing). What are some of the major differences between the UK and the USA?

Celebrity Deaths


I love Prince's music. I was gutted when he died because it meant I'd never be able to see him live. I did have a minor panic attack/shock. But was I distraught for days, crying over a guy I don't even know?

Top 10 Favourite Jacqueline Wilson Books


I love Jacqueline Wilson so much. She's one of my all-time favourite authors due to me devouring her books as a child. I've recently been on a bit of a JW binge. I love all of her books, but if I had to pick my absolute ten favourites in no particular order, this would be it. (May contain spoilers).

The pros and cons of capitalism


Capitalism is a flawed system, but I think people knock it more than they should. The ultimate anti-capitalist figure - Che Guevara - is now one of the most sold faces on international merchandise. I think this shows the irony of capitalism, but also why it continues to work.
