You will hear in your life, over and over, that time is precious and if there has been a moment where I truly appreciated this, it was reading The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom. As part of The Unread Shelf Project - I have taken to reading the books on my shelves that have been … Continue reading The Importance of Time


Guest Post: Ready Player One

I first came across Ready Player One when I was studying my undergraduate degree. I received it in a Lootcrate subscription box, didn't read it for a year and boy was that a mistake! When I finally picked it up, I was hooked. Immersed in nerd culture, I couldn't stop reading and to this day … Continue reading Guest Post: Ready Player One

The beauty of video games

Computer generated imagery (CGI) has came so far over the past two decades. The first film I saw at the cinema was Starwars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace (1999).

I'm 23 years old and about four months ago I moved out of my parents, for what I hope, is the last time. I first moved out when I was 18 to University, from one of the smallest city's in the UK to the capital, London.

Blogger Recognition Award

Early last week I was thrilled to find out that charliechatters was nominated for The Blogger Recognition Award by Rika Confesses. I really appreciate the nomination and the fact that, despite being a new discovery for Rika, she thought my small blog was worth the mention. Rika Confesses is generally a badass blog that makes … Continue reading Blogger Recognition Award

Exploring something new

Usually entering Monday morning, I would feel apprehensive for the week ahead. I allowed myself to become trapped by a routine, forgot about putting some time aside for myself. Yes, I would read and play video games but almost to structure. My commute time is set aside for a book and after dinner I play … Continue reading Exploring something new
