Hello! After far too many months, I’m back on the blogging scene and ready to get back into the swing of things. These past couple of months I’ve been completely overwhelmed with work and applying for different internships, which is super exciting and scary at the same time. Yet it’s even scarier to think that in two weeks time I will have finished my degree and that I’ll have to start being a fully functioning adult! I also finally completed my dissertation in which I explored the representation of trauma in the works of Ian McEwan. His book Atonement is one of my all-time favourite reads, so I thought that my dissertation was the perfect excuse to explore more of his novels. To celebrate finishing my three years at Chester, myself and some course mates are jetting off to Rome with hopes of fulfilling our Lizzie McGuire fantasies, so any recommendations would be fab!
Before Easter, I also ran a film festival at the Chester Storyhouse, which involved the coming together of a group of individuals who all share a passion for film to organise a three day take-over weekend. As expected my group focused on book-to-film adaptations and chose to show Paddington 2 and Life of Pi as well as planning different activities that linked to the theme. Not only did this programme helping me learn more about the different areas of film and its career paths but it has also provided me with some useful contacts for the future! This was such a fab experience that I truly enjoyed and one that I highly recommend to anyone living in the Chester area.
My hope for the rest of the year is to try to post at least three times a week and to experiment more with different features and topics. Recently, I had to create a mini portfolio of creative pieces which I’m thinking of sharing as I had so much fun writing them and it would be cruel for them to just sit unread in the depths of my laptop. Now I’ve got more free time, I plan on tackling my ever-growing TBR list so keep your eyes peeled for lots and lots of reviews! I also really want to get more involved with the blogging community as everyone is just so lovely and I’m all for meeting new and like-minded people!
Thank you to all my followers for your patience, support and for sticking with me over these past years. Happy blogging!
