November ‘What I’m’

Standard

17012621_1300x1733What I’m watching – Currently in my spare time I’ve been watching Happy Endings, which I think is the same as last month too, it’s a comedy about five friends that live in Chicago. I just love the series and I love the characters!

Additionally, I’ve started re-watching Suits (starring Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams). If you’re unfamiliar, Suits is a show about Mike Ross, a brilliant college-dropout, who, after a drug deal gone wrong, finds himself in the office of New York’s best lawyer, Harvey Spectre, who gives him a job.

I nearly forgot all about Doctor Who, series 9 is airing currently and I’m loving it, and I’m a Celebrity, which is also airing at the moment.

What I’m subscribing to – This month I have been watching so much Cereal Time, a breakfast show hosted my Charlie McDonnell and Jimmy Hill. This channel is rather silly but very entertaining to watch especially if you’re already a fan of the channels Charlieissocoollike and Jimmy0010.

jonnI’ve also just finished watching Jonny’s video on the channel ‘I read books in nightclubs’ and thought it was a good time to recommend his videos again. So please check out both of these channels if you haven’t already.

What I’m listening to – My favourite song right now, which has been played on repeat, is Ocean Drive by Duke Dumont.

However, my favourite band right now is Busted. Now, if you know me, you’ll know that I love McFly and I’ve subsequently loved McBusted who have been touring and making music together over the last couple of years. All this time I’ve loved Busted, of course, but I would never have believed that the bBusted-Reunionand would reunite for another tour, let alone make new music together… but alas, the impossible is reality and in May of 2016 I am going to see Charlie, Matt and James play as Busted with both old and new songs! I’M SO EXCITED. I GET TO SEE CHARLIE LIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME!

What I’m eating – Brioche. This may seem totally random but today I tried Brioche for the first time ever and will now be buying it much more regularly. That is all.

What I’m quoting – ‘Peace cannot be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding’. – Albert Einstein.

Other: 5 Significant Places (TAG)

Standard

I’m doing ‘The Significant Places Tag’ as created by Actor and YouTuber Jonathan Vickers. To see his video, click here. The reason why I’m doing this tag is 1. It’s a great idea and 2. To enter Jonny’s competition that he mentioned in his latest video (click here).

kkjjI recently moved to Sheffield to study at one of the universities here. I’ve only been here little over a month but the point of the tag is to suggest my most significant places where I live.

 Place Number One: The Peace Gardens (Image left)

According to the internet (see my source here) the Peace Gardens ‘are an award-winning public space situated along Pinstone Street’.

When I was first finding my way around Sheffield I found The Peace Gardens and I was captivated by them. It is extremely pretty and calming and something I was not expecting to find in the middle of the city. It’s also situated in front of a beautiful, grand, old building which makes me love it even more.

I just want to visit the gardens whenever I get the chance whether I go to read, go for a walk, go to have a picnic, anything and I especially can’t wait to see it during the summer.

Place Number Two: The City Centre (Image right)sdsdf

Every city has one but I love Sheffield’s City Centre. Like you’d expect it has loads of shops but it is incredibly pretty. I love pretty buildings (as you may have gathered) and Sheffield has a mixture of old and new buildings, a mix of ancient with modern, and I find this brilliant. It is so beautiful and I love looking around in this area and showing people around who have come to visit me,dgddfgs such as friends and family.

Place Number Three: The Hubs

This building, known as The Hubs, or the Kettles due to its design, is my Student’s Union. Again, the building is really interesting. As you can see from the images (left), it is composed of four ‘kettle’ like structures, each a ‘pod’ inside. On the bottom floor, there’s the bar, the shop/café and the student union’s offices. Upstairs you have the common room, the ‘stage’ and the advice centre. The reason why I like this place is firstly due to its atmosphere. It’s a friendly place to be since you’re surroundedRed_Lion_Sheffield by people like yourself and people who understand the student lifestyle. Additionally, it’s the place where I meet up with my Society, the Harmonies, which I have been really enjoying. It’s therefore the place where I took a leap and tried something new and made some new friends.

Place Number Four: The Red Lion Pub (Image right)

Very simply, this is a nice, quiet local’s pub located in the middle of many of my university buildings. It’s where I met a close friend of mine who I see almost every day now, and it’s the source of good memories during my fresher’s week – where it all started.

Place Number Five: Sheffield Hallam University (Image left)

4186295025The university had to be part of my significant places tag since it’s the reason why I moved to Sheffield. It’s the reason I decided to move out from my parents house and the reason I tore myself from that comfort zone to begin the multitude of challenges that comes with moving to a new city and being a student. I haven’t regretted it yet, so that must be good. I’m also really enjoying my course here at Hallam as a Media Student.

So that’s it and while I don’t know about too much of Sheffield yet, I am really enjoying the atmosphere and the beauty of this city and I can’t wait to embark on the next three years of exploring this place and in studying for my degree, which without the aim of getting, I may have never lived in Sheffield and may have never gotten the chance to explore what this city has to offer.

Hope you enjoyed,

YouTube: I Read Books In Nightclubs

Standard

UntitledToday I’m recommending the YouTube channel, I Read Books In Nightclubs, belonging to none other than Jonny Vickers, an actor from Aberdeen. As a working West End actor, Jonny’s videos sometimes contain snipets of his working life via daily vlog style videos, but mainly, his videos are ‘devoted to books and his general musings’.

Jonny was a member of the cast during 4600247301The War of the Worlds Arena Tour, where he appeared as the NASA Controller. Starring alongside him was fellow YouTuber and working West End actress, Carrie Hope Fletcher, whom he became good friends with. Not long after did Jonny create his channel and it is actually thanks to Carrie and her videos that I was introduced to Jonny and his channel.

Jonny is such a warm, positive character who has buckets of charm. This makes his videos a joy to watch and it is for that reason alone, his channel is worth sharing and recommending. Additionally, his funny anecdotes, book related videos and general craziness makes his videos so interesting and entertaining.

Here are some examples of his videos:

Take a look and make sure you subscribe to him.
