A8: S3 - Chapter's End



"Are you coming with us? We’re leaving now."

I looked up. It was getting late and I knew I had to get up early to move out the next day.

Still, I hesitated.

Silver is Magnetic - Guest post #2



by Lauren Robertson


'Are you my son from the future?'

I typed, 90% joking and 10% serious, stunned by the depth of synchronicity I'd just experienced. For a long moment, the cursor blinked silently.

Ambition & Adventure - Guest Post #1





by Kate Snowdon


'There are two things in life that drive me. Ambition and adventure.

It's ambition that gets me up in the morning; that's made me set so many career goals, and that's led to me achieving exactly what I set out to achieve at school, college, uni and (hopefully) thereafter.

Insta of the week #1



So this is a new feature I'm going to be launching, so you guys know what I get up to between mammoth blog posts, and, of course, for more storytelling!

I'm a massive fan of Instagram, and have shamefully Insta'd almost 1000 pictures in my time. I've cut down a lot now, but still manage 2-3 a week, so I've decided to pick my best each week and share it with you, and the story behind it too.

A8: S2 - The Silver Grid


















Firstly, I'd like to apologise for being away for so long.

If there's one thing which is a fundamental DON'T as a blogger, it's to take a hiatus. But doesn't life have a funny way of panning out? This was never an intentional hiatus, it's just everything has been unbelievably hectic lately, and I haven't had any time to blog, mostly because of this new internship I have started working in the City.

Besides, the more time I'm off having adventures, the more stories I'll have to tell, right?

Act 8: Scene 1 - AUGUST


I've had three beautiful and startling realisations this week.

Number One: It is August. This means 2013 is two thirds complete. And... that doesn't actually feel wrong.  

Number Two: It's only two months until my 21st birthday, which marks the end of the first project of Scarphelia and the reason I started to blog - to create something remarkable before I turn 21. 

Number Three: All that has happened since I started this mission... has been beyond any realm of what I could've imagined.
