It’s been around three long years since I last had a proper, written blog and, given I’m an Undergraduate English Language student – it’s a bit lax. There isn’t a particular theme for this blog, more an excuse for me to exercise my brain a little and an outlet for me to bitch and moan about things that irk me, or to gush over the things I love.
For a current example, I’d quite happily write a post bitching about the fact that I have an essay due on the 20th and a huge book that corresponds with it, that I cannot be bothered reading. Conversely, I’d write an ‘on-the-fence’ post about Lana Del Rey – a hot topic of discussion at the moment – blurring the lines between indie and pop mainstream, one shot of Botox at a time. Finally, if I were to write a post about something I currently love, it’d be about The Civil Wars, or the joys of Student Finance and the January Sales.
Today, however, I think I have to concentrate on the damn essay…
