Its Not Hollywood, Its a Man’s World

Let’s face it, it’s not Hollywood, it’s because it’s a man’s world that women directors are a shock to the media’s system. Recently, S.J. Clarkson was announced to direct the upcoming untitled Star Trek sequel movie and I couldn’t help but feel like the news was more of an ‘oh, wow’ than a ‘this seems […] Read more…

How to Be Single

I think out of all of the romantic comedies I’ve snuggled up to and the relationships I’ve been in, at the age I am right now I feel the happiest I’ve ever felt being perfectly alone and that’s down to one thing – knowing myself, and I don’t think you can do that in a […] Read more…

When you think about it, the word, normal means something different to someone else, and being in a […] Read more…

Moreover, I’m single with a cherry on top. This is my second year of celebrating the dreading d-day. I think last […] Read more…

The Art of Getting By

    I was watching a film this morning with a cup of tea in hand, Pretty in Pink I think it was, when out of nowhere I just started crying. Thank heavens no one was in the house at the time because my family are those people who don’t leave you alone until you’re […] Read more…
