6/10 – Video Analysis

This is a video analysis of 6/10 by dodie. Please forgive my poor screenshotting abilities. Trigger warning – small descriptions of anxiety. Also obviously spoilers for the video. Click HERE if you haven’t seen it yet. DISCLAIMER – I am abbreviating the term “mental health illness” to “MHI” because I’m lazy. The video begins in…

6/10 – Lyrical Analysis

This is my lyrical analysis of 6/10 by dodie. Trigger warning – small descriptions of anxiety disorder. DISCLAIMER – I refer to mental health illnesses as MHIs because I’m lazy. So I’m commenting on pretty much all the lyrics – a lot of them are repeated. You can find the full structure HERE. “I feel…

6/10 Musical Analysis

Context – the music video “6/10” by dodie/Dodie Clark (I may refer to her as Clark out of fancy essay habit – sorry!) came out yesterday and I desperately want to talk about it. I think I’m going to split this up into 3 posts because I’ve got too much to say for just one….

Hygge Student

Hygge. The new trend hitting the hipsters of the world. The idea of happiness and cosiness. What is it? Well, it comes from Denmark. If you ask any Dane “what is hygge?”, they’ll have an answer for you. However it isn’t something that can be directly translated into English – which I think is so…

A Letter From The Quiet Kid #2

Dear readers I am not lazy. I just have a different way of living. Lame excuse, I know. But it’s true. There are certain ways I want to have things that are comfortable for me. And changing it up is so difficult. Like panic attack difficult. My room’s a bit messy. I have my instruments…

A Letter From The Quiet Kid

Dear reader, This is the quiet kid. The one who sits in the middle of the class and doesn’t say a word. The one that stays in their bedroom for large portions of the waking day. The one you see walking to and from school alone. The one that might meet your eyes when you…

Ireland 2017

I’ve been away a while – sorry! But I’m back now. So. As I mentioned in my Travel 2017 post, I went to Ireland at the beginning of April for a trampolining competition and a lil’ sight-seeing. Well the vlog went up (a while ago tbh, sorry) so here it is. I hope you enjoy…

First Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon!

As the title may suggest, this post is about the Dewey’s 24 hour readathon which, as you may guess, is a 24 hour readathon. Yeah. Now to my reader friends out there, I have a confession to make…. It’s been about 3 months since I finished a book. There! I said it! And I know….

#iwd : Inspirational Women

So if you didn’t know, today is International Women’s Day and I’ve been thinking all day about what to say about it, because I want to say something. So I thought why not compile a list of women that I find inspirational – note, that I find inspirational. These aren’t in any particular order, although I’ve categorised…

Kinky Boots Review

Soooo I was lucky enough to manage to get good tickets to see Kinky Boots the other day (probably our 3rd time lucky with the half price ticket booths in Leicester Square – it’s worth having a look there if you’re interested). I’d heard good things about it but I didn’t really know what it…

School of Rock the Musical Review

O. M. G. What an experience. Holy. Fricking. Moly. Fun fact for you all, School of Rock is my favourite movie of all time (has been for like almost 10 years). And Andrew Lloyd Webber is one of my favourite musical people of all time. So when I first heard that the 2 were coming…

Places I’ve Been: Before

So seeing as I have a Travel section of this blog, indicating that I like to travel and I have traveled a fair bit, I’m figuring it’d be good to document where I’ve traveled to before starting this blog and then posting an update every year? Well that’s the plan. Anyway. I have travelled a…
