Art, Misc.


When you have a lot of hobbies, you find yourself more bored than anyone who has no hobbies. I have many – I like to write fiction, blog, sew, draw, watch films, listen to music and more – and when I have a day to myself with no plans, I find it impossible to choose something to do and then an hour late run out of motivation to even do anything, resulting in what feels like a wasted day. I’ve been staring at WordPress for the last thirty minutes, watching Pointless on a random digital channel and feeling like I should be doing something more with my life. I should be at work right now in a Mon-Fri 9-5 job but I’m not. I’m part time and at first I loved it, but as it turns out, I’m incredibly bored.

I’ve done a lot of drawing recently, and as you know, I’ve got a real thing for Disney Princesses. They’ve always fascinated me and in this last week I’ve been drawing them and colouring with some nice shiny new Crayola pencils (which are wonderful!). Have a look at these and be nice..

Entertainment, Life Experience


So I’m sitting here in my wonderfully bland uni room on a Sunday afternoon thinking: there is crap all to do in this Godforsaken establishment. And then the filmmaker in me pops out and says, “Let’s make a video!” Ooh, great idea.. about what though? It’s then that the same idea that hits me about four times a month pops into my head to create a tiny film using stop-animation, something sweet and cute that relates to my life. To cut an incessantly long and dull story down; I drawed a pichure of me and mah daddy when i was ickle. 🙂 N’awww. This has absolutely no relevance to your life in the slightest, but I like the picture, so here it is 🙂


“I have to tell you about the future!”

Okay, so I’m not actually 100% certain that everyone knows that my favourite film is in fact Back to the Future. It might be safe to say that this is now clarified with y’all. So yes! Back to the Future day! Technically, considering the time that I’m writing this, it was yesterday, but the 12th of November, 1955 (in the film, of course) is the famous date that the one and only Marty McFly went back to his home-time of 1985 with the help of the power of lightning and, naturally, the Flux Capacitor. Now, I’m sure that you’ve all seen Back to the Future – if you haven’t, get out now…haha jokes! No, seriously – and I’m sure that you all think I’m perhaps a little teensy bit crazy about it…well you’re right. And to be perfectly frank, this post has no sentimental, no political, no actual relevant meaning to anything other than what you may call my obsession.

Alright, I’ll find some kind of moral of this story…

I have it! The point is, that everyone has to have something that they’re absolutely in love with, whether it’s a nerdy thing or not. To be honest, Back to the Future is perfectly nerdy but I couldn’t care less because it’s something that I love and something that I understand and relate to. Well, maybe that’s a step too far considering I never had a time machine and never almost erased myself from existence, but you get the idea.

And the second moral of the story is: if you haven’t watched Back to the Future, go out and buy it before I burst into tears at your lack of experience with such a masterpiece.
