No, Striking For Climate Is Not Just For Adults

This post hopefully needs no introduction. I am here to write a small essay on why I believe climate striking is most definitely NOT just for adults. Let’s start with a bit of history. In 1963 Martin Luther King Jr. led a march on Washington for jobs and freedom, in 1913 there was a Women’s Suffrage Parade, The Abolitionist Movement in the 1800’s, the March on Washington for LGBT rights and liberation in 1993. All of these historical movements made history and helped change social values by creating awareness. They all involved active demonstrations, protests or other forms of physical movement. In other words, they did not stand still. We are now living in a time where one of the greatest threats to our way of life is from our climate. The climate is changing at a rapid rate and with scientific backing and while public pressure continues, governments and politicians still remain polarized and passive.

In Depth Album Review of Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover’

Hello all,

If a rock is what you have been living under for the past week, you may not know. However, if you are any regular human with an internet connection, you would have likely seen that Taylor Swift released her new album ‘Lover’, possessing 18 songs about the concept of love and all its various and beautiful forms. As a massive fan of Taylor and her music I was excited to hear the new songs but was worried considering the first two singles released ‘ME!’ and ‘You Need To Calm Down’ both came across quite lyrically amateur. Thankfully, all my doubts were proven wrong, as I simply cannot get enough of this new music! It’s a new, transformative era of Taylor Swift. One that has came about through maturity and as a result of the trials and tribulations undergone by Taylor, both privately and publicly in recent years.

My Thoughts On Instagram Removing The ‘Like’ Feature?

Hello all,

Happy Thursday! It is unlike me to post a blog post on a Thursday. However, I thought I would just do a stream-of consciousness and blog about the new update that was introduced for trial in Australia this morning. It has been quite a contentious update which has had many people either wanting it gone as soon as possible or wanting it to become a permanent feature. My thoughts are quite mixed and I want to cover as many bases as possible in this post and hope I can do just that.

Movie & TV Wrap-up: June 2019

Today I am coming to you with my movie and TV wrap-up for June 2019, which is about a week behind us at this point. The reason I am writing this post so late in the next month is because as you probably saw, I was in New Zealand from the 22nd of June to the 5th July! Onto the movies and TV shows though. This past month was a great month for the big and small screen, which produced some really engaging, emotionally powerful and fun productions! It was definitely far better than last months catastrophe-of-a-month. I won’t ramble on about my pointless generalised opinions though – instead I will delve right into the juicy opinions on this months best and worst of film and TV.

The Playlist Of My Life

Maybe it’s just me, but does anyone else love going through all the ‘playlist of my life’ videos on Teen Vogue’s Youtube? Well, for quite some time now they have been my go-too videos to watch when I am bored. I think you can tell a lot about a person by the type of music they listen too, and so seeing which artists like similar music to me is always interesting, as is finding out which artists listen to music that is completely opposite to my own. Basically, if you have not seen the videos, they have a celebrity guest who creates a playlist of ten songs that represent their life, both past or present. Some songs have surface level meanings to the artist, while other artists have songs that have much deeper meaning to them. Either way, I think discussing aspects of your life as represented my songs is a really great idea and I thought what better way to continue the trend than by creating my own ‘playlist of my life.’ Continue reading “The Playlist Of My Life”

Songs To Listen Too When You Want To Cry

Music. The way we communicate our deepest emotions in a small but impactful way. This is probably the most accessible and common form that we see ourselves represented on a daily basis; through song. Music manifests countless emotions through lyrics and composition, which will resonate and affect each person in a different way, depending on their own set of circumstances at that current point in time. The songs I have compiled for this blog post are those which seek to bring out an emotional response of sadness or reflection upon events or emotions that one may come across in life. These songs present themes that are very real, relevant and relatable. Continue reading “Songs To Listen Too When You Want To Cry”
