When I went back to London for a bit, my friend came with me and I took her to Greenwich market. I love the atmosphere and vibe from this particular market. The bustle, the many little trinkets you don’t find … Continue reading →
It’s kind of funny being woken up by all this doom and gloom crap when almost every morning, for the past two weeks, I’ve been disturbed from my slumber by the glorious rays of the fireball in the sky. I … Continue reading →
I had a sneak peak into what my A2 Sociology course consists of this morning and we were talking about the differences in 1st, 2nd and 3rd world countries but then the idea of a 4th world bcame apparent. This … Continue reading →
The metal cage trapping me has finally been smashed in and thrown in the rubbish. Exam season is over for me. THANK THE HEAVENS. I’m not even lying, I was very close to a breakdown and apparently four exams is … Continue reading →
Over the course of 26th-27th April, in the middle of the city of Nottingham,there was a rather large ‘tent’ erected in the middle of what we know as ‘The Market Square’. Within this tent contained a handful of wonderfully tall, … Continue reading →
Every now and then I go onto 4OD (thank God for catch up TV) and I watch some sort of documentary when there’s nothing else on TV. Now tonight, I watched ‘I Am Slave‘ and it has really touched me. Throughout this documentary I found myself wincing in pain, hiding away from the screen and also crying with both joy and great sadness. It takes you on a rollercoaster of a ride but it also serves as an eye opener. I for one didn’t know that the slave trade still exists today in modern Britain but it does. With over 5,000 in London and 20,000 in Sudan alone, many villages are attacked and children are stolen in order to be sold and captivated for the rest of their lives.
This woman survived six years and when her chance finally came, she didn’t half run! It’s scary how it’s still ongoing and the traumas some go through.
I urge you to watch this, it’s important to always help those in need and to not be ignorant and simply ignore cries for help.
I don’t know about any of you out there but I for one knew of St Patricks Day but never actually knew the reasoning behind it and so I did a little research.
The whole idea for March 17th was to commemorate St Patrick as he entered heaven and also the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. There’s supposed to be a great big feast but due to this year it being on a Sunday, you could have the feast on another day.
The green themes of everything I think originates from the shamrock? Originally St Patrick was associated with blue but it was said he explained the trinity of Christianity with a shamrock and so it stuck.
Now you know the reasoning behind it all, go back to enjoying carnivals, beer and anything else you were doing!
