Serving Food

I’m sitting here, deciding what to eat as I write this; probably not the best thing to do when you’re hungry. But it got me thinking about my kitchen stuff again and how I serve food when it is done. So this is a blog about the serving methods my family have helped me learn. Pasta & Vegetables This one was tricky for me at first. Certain pasta (any spaghetti-type […]

Christmas Party!!!

It’s nearly Christmas and my uni breaks up next week, every year they throw a Christmas party… with Sock Puppets. I’m really excited to see what they have in store for us this year! Sock puppets! I know, random right? During my first year, it was a sock-puppet version of Little Red Riding Hood. It was hilarious. Not to mention, our lecturers were looking as if they were enjoying it […]

The Trusty Ol’ Kettle

Being British, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I love a good cup of tea with two spoonfuls of sugar. But a few years ago, I struggled to open the lid from kettles, particularly if I was refilling a freshly boiled one. For one thing, it was heavy, and another I couldn’t grab the lid that well. It often took me a few minutes to pull the lid apart and fill it […]

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 […]

Me & Cerebral Palsy

As a child, I didn’t really understand what people meant when they told me I had Cerebral Palsy since birth. I just understood that it meant I was different but wasn’t sure how. But as I grew, I found that I struggled to do things that my friends could easily do, I wasn’t as fast, my joints hurt all of a sudden and there was nothing I could do to […]

6 Writer’s Block techniques

There is often a debate as to whether writer’s block actually exists. Personally, I think that the answer is yes. There have been times when I’ve had a story floating around in my head. I know the characters. I can see their world, their issue and what they need. But the words won’t come to paper. The sentences do not appear, and the character just stops talking. I end up […]

Diablo | Berg’s Book Club

I hope you love horses just as much as my friend’s ten-year-old because this week I am reviewing a book. The book review of Diablo was requested by its Australian author, Fallacious Rose and it is a children’s story about a naughty horse who wants to take over the world. This is a change from last week where I reviewed a reimagined fairy tale of Cinderella with the book title –  The […]

PHAB Camp

What is PHAB Camp? PHAB Camp is a charity that means a lot to me and I’ll never forget it. 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 […]
