A6: S7 - GLASTONBURY!

I was watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire yesterday, and when I saw the scenes at the Quidditch World Cup I felt a warm fluttering in my chest and redness creep across my chest. Because tomorrow morning, at a painfully early hour, I am off to the one and only Glastonbury Festival!

A6: S6 - Scarphelia Stickers

When I first started my blog back in January, I was curious to find a way in which I could market myself virally in real life, as well as virally online.

I wanted to reach out to a wider audience, and although that was possible on the web through things such as creating a Facebook page and utilising the Better Blogger Network, it just didn't quench my curiosity.

And curiosity is something which has always been one of my highest needs, and I like to believe it is human nature to be curious.

Therefore I came up with the idea of Scarphelia stickers.

A6: S5 - No-one Suspects a Wednesday...

I'm not sure whether it was the sunlight streaming through the blinds which woke me this morning, the sledgehammer headache doing its best to beat my eyeballs out of my head, or the swilling dizzy sickness dancing in my stomach... But aside from that, my first thought as I opened my eyes and looked around the room, was of complete and utter confusion.

A6: S4 - Luck is a Choice

Time is nothing but a series of happenings, one after another.

Your life, the little pocket of time which you rent, is a series of these happenings, which happen to you.

However,

Do you believe that things happen to you... or that you make things happen?

A6: S3 - To Blog & Not To Blog

As a writer, I have never felt torn between whether or not I should write something.

If it moves me enough to make me want to write about it, then just give me a pen and notepad and I'll be lost for hours.

As a blogger though, there is an entirely new set of rules it seems.

Rules which, until recently, where completely unbeknownst to me.

I guess there are the obvious examples, ie you probably wouldn't blog about how gross your bogies were today or how great it is to steal things and commit bloody murder, but when it comes down to the finer details, where do you have to draw the line between what you want to write, and what you shouldn't write about?

Because it seems there is one fundamental difference between a writer and a blogger; responsibility.

Happy 50th Post!


Hello my beautiful little darlings,

For my 50th post, I wanted to do something a little special. As this blog has adapted and changed, and readers have joined at various points in the development process, I think the point of it, or really, what this actually is, has gotten a little lost along the way.

Therefore for my 50th post I'm going to do a massive throwback, covering everything which has been said so far, all the adventures I've been on, the lessons I've learnt and all the people I've met along the way! Click on the pink titles to read the posts :)

Act Six: Scene One - Turning Great Ideas Into Positive Action

So I haven't posted in a while, mostly out of sheer excitement and planning for what is hopefully going to be not only the start of a very promising future for me, but also the end of me being average.

It's time to prove to the world that I can do it. I can be remarkable. And here's the first step.

Here is how I'm going to bag my dream job, just from a cupcake:
