A Recently Distant Cinema Visit

Recently, a friend of mine posted a link to this article on her facebook page. It discusses the discrimination disabled people face when getting to venues for concerts, live performances, etc. And it seems the same thing kind of happens in cinemas – just not as bad. I mean, unlike these venues, we do have the CEA card when booking to see a film, which allows us to prebook a […]

Mothers Day and Feet

In the UK, it is mother’s day today. On Friday, I went around my university city with my mom. We went to cafes, the arcade, a bit of window shopping and stayed out until 9pm. I introduced mom to her first mocktail and we learned to never eat at Five Guys. Five Guys is a fast food place like KFC, McDonalds and Burger King, they style their restaurants to imitate America and make […]

Blame Hitler

It’s funny what memories come back to you and when. Yesterday I was in the Bullring, dad and I were talking about how bad the traffic in Birmingham is getting – mostly to do with road works, and then I remembered May 2017. 16th May 2017 there was a World War II bomb in Birmingham, not just in Birmingham but near the main north road in and out of the city.

Manchester

I am in my final year at the University of Derby and so have been looking at MA’s in Screenwriting. My lecturer recommended Manchester, saying that it had a good reputation for a new degree. I looked at other universities besides Derby and Manchester but didn’t find the others as interesting so I decided to go on a Master’s open day for Manchester and Derby. Manchester’s was this Wednesday. Dad and […]

When I was sixteen, I was going through a difficult time and my school suggested that I took a week holiday over the summer with this charity. So I did.  That, at the time, was my longest stay away from home. PHAB Camp is a charity that takes disabled and able-bodied […]

Central Park in New York

My dad and I visited new York in April 2017, we went to many attractions and venues, we went to many attractions and venues, including the Empire State Building and Top of the Rock, all with the help from the New York Pass.We went on cruises, some of which came with the appeal of food and took an educational trip to Ellis Island—which was just insightful. Then there were the museums,  the evolution of humans in The Natural History but we still had time for Central Park.

Watch out for those large pizzas!

New York – The Street and NY Pass

New York City. In 2017, my Dad and I went to New York for his birthday and it was a fantastic, probably once in a life-time, experience. It’s true what they say—the sky is starless. It never gets truly dark, there is always a semi-grey sky rather than the pitch black that you can get in the countryside in the UK. And the city honks all the way through the night. Here is my experience in New York.
