Veganuary attempt (and other new-year-new-me musings)

It's two days before 2018 kicks off, and I'll bet lots of us are planning on becoming perfect beings as of Monday. This weekend marks the time where we mop up the leftover Christmas chocolate and purchase our last mince pies; we will not have room for such things in our New-And-Improved-Diet-And-Exercise-Plan! In truth, I'm only mocking myself...


Organising: how to fake it ’til you make it

Here's a question I got asked at most recent my job interview. "Are you an organised person?"

3 Easy and Healthy Recipes That Can Reduce Your Environmental Impact are three recipes to add into your week that won't take up too much of your time, and will benefit your health and the planet to boot. Let me know if you make any of these!

But as plans changed and adult life began to rear its head, I found that I was experiencing new kinds of stress that my body didn't know how to manage.

blog: games I’ve been playing

I've always had a knowledge and appreciation of games. I've watched everything from GTA to Bloodborne to Binding of Isaac and a lot in between being played, but the stuff I got my hands on as a kid sat firmly within 'kid' boundaries.

writing: Love and the Screen

The world is bold on the screen. How beautiful it is to experience love in full colour, three years in two hours.

patience and kindness are virtues

Well, what can I say - this week's been crazy. I'm finally starting real work on my dissertation (gulp) and I've been trying my best to make sure St Andrews Green Film Festival runs smoothly and enjoyably.

writing: Grieving the Future

Grief is a funny thing. The seven stages of grief are: disbelief, denial, bargaining, guilt, anger, depression, and acceptance/hope. This line-up works pretty well for a person or a pet who was close to you and has died. But what about the kind of grief associated with society?
