My 2014

Waaaaaasssuuup!!? That’s how to start a blog.

Hello my lovelies! Welcome, welcome, take a seat. There’s tea and biscuits at the back (actually there’s not but you’re more than welcome to drink tea and eat biscuits whilst you read this). It’s the end of 2014 which means just two more years until my best friend who is born on 29th February can celebrate her real birthday again. It’s very strange having a friend who’s only 6 years old. I digress.

I uploaded a video today about my New Year’s Resolutions for next year and one of those resolutions was to write more and start a blog so I’m being extra good and starting two days early! Well, the real reason is that I can’t promote an empty blog – that’d look terrible! So I’m frantically writing this whilst the video uploads and before I rush out the house to meet my friend for dinner. Here is said video:


Now no-one wants to hear the same thing over again. I can just imagine you all slamming down on your buzzers yelling ‘REPETITION’. Oh wait, you’ve never listened to the Radio 4 show Just A Minute? Well it’s not my fault you didn’t get the reference! So rather than looking forward like I do in the video, this is going to be all about looking back. What did I do in 2014? What did I achieve? What the fuck happened basically. Here we gooooooo!!!

I graduated.
This deserves to go first I feel. After three years at the University of Birmingham I graduated with a first class degree in History. I like to think I took enough modules in things relating to sex that I can say that I specialised in sexual history. Sounds pretty cool, right? I had an amazing time at university but by May I was so ready to leave. I made some lifelong friends and gained some invaluable experiences. I don’t have any photos of graduation to show you because I was on holiday with my family in Portugal at the time but here’s a photo and myself and my beautiful housemates at our festival themed end of exams party in our final year <3



I moved to London.
This one is pretty self explanatory. I moved. But like properly this time. None of this business of coming home for weeks over Christmas, Easter and the summer holidays. Oh no. I have moved. Also, my parents are going travelling and they’re renting out my room in their house so… #homeless. But not! Because I live in London! Did I mention that I live in London?

I went to Orlando, Los Angeles, Morocco and Portugal.
More travelling please. I like.

I moved on from some heartbreak.
I was really hung up on one person for most of 2013/2014 but this was the year I finally moved on and I no longer feel angry or sad all the time. No more details. That’s all you’re getting.

Okay, so a lot more happened in 2014 but I can’t think off the top of my head right now and I also don’t want this post to be too long. How long are blog posts normally? I have no idea! There should be a comment section where you can write stuff. Let me know what things you enjoyed from 2014 and Happy New Year!

  1. Eeep I love your videos and I’M SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS BLOG AAAHH you write so well! Oh and I’m really sorry for the grammar nazzi behavior but you said “here’s some pictures” rather than here ARE some pictures. I’m sorry It’s a habit I can’t stop myself!

  2. I definitely thought I left a comment here, but not sure it actually went through. I’m really glad you’ve started a blog, I enjoy your videos and feel like you’d write some interesting things too. Good luck with it!

  3. Hii there!

    I saw your resolutions video on youtube and found the link of this blog. I’ll read every single post you’re going to write!

    I also loveeeeeeee your accent, maybe because I’m Dutch and maybe because I like every British accent haha..

    Xxx Manon (from the Netherlands!).

  4. I am so happy to read this!! I have been reading and re-reading your paper (now I’ve started with Foucault as well, thanks to you) and I think your writing is just as interesting as your videos. I’ve read the review for “Yes Please” as well, and I feel like it lets us see a slightly different part of your personality, which is great! Please keep it up, I love reading this 🙂
