I just wanted to write a quick post to invite you to a couple of other blogs that I have been working on in the last few months.
I have made a media blog and a fantasy themed blog basically because I was asked to by my university; for the purposes of building up a portfolio and for specific assignments and/or projects.
The first blog: themediastudentsblog is an academic space for media related posts. This will be kept updated for the most part of the next three years.
The second blog: Welcome To Storybrooke has been set up for a specific project. While much of its content will be posted in the next month, I do hope to post odd bits and bobs even after my assignment has been closed and marked.
I would really appreciate it if you checked out these blogs and showed them a bit of love (and even some constructive criticism).

What I’m is my recent blog concept which allows me to cover a few of my favourites of the month in one post. This is my What I’m for October…
What I’m reading – The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire (Book Six) by Cassandra Clare. In August I was in the midst of reading Book Three and I’m still thoroughly enjoying this series. The series is reminiscent of some of my favourite books and interests. It is about a group of young adults in a fantastical world of werewolves, vampires, faeries, warlocks and a race of Shadowhunters: descended from Angels, as they step forward into a time of war, uncertainty and danger.
What I’m watching – This month I’m all about TV Shows and I’ve been watching Happy Endings Season Three, after successfully finding it on Amazon Instant. I love this show to pieces, despite its only three season airing before it was cancelled, and the characters are so loveable. I’ve also been re-watching Season One of Once Upon A Time, another show I totally adore. In case you’re unfamiliar, this show is all about fairytale characters torn out of their world and thrown into ours by an evil Queen. I totally recommend both shows.
What I’m subscribing to – This month I’ve been enjoying Fleur De Force’s vlog channel, FleurDeVlog, as she has been and will be vlogging every day in October. I’ve also been enjoying Strawburry17 as the channel has been revamped for Halloween with a range of new spooky shows.
What I’m listening to – So much! I’ve been listening to loads of music as of late. But I’ve recently gotten back into bands such as Metric and Nirvana. If you’re unfamiliar with either of these artists/bands I recommend checking out Satellite Mind and Help I’m Alive by Metric and Smells Like Teen Spirit and Come As You Are by Nirvana.
What I’m eating – Recently I became a student. Yes, a student. Part of this role entails trying to eat cheaply. I’m also a vegetarian. In all of this, I have been enjoying Cous Cous as a regular part of many of my meals. I have been especially enjoying buying bags of plain Cous Cous which I can add to salad or rice (I hope that isn’t too weird) and I’ve been eating it on its own (okay, that’s weird, I know) with a seasoning of salt and pepper. Delicious.
What I’m quoting – ‘What a treacherous thing it is to believe that a person in more than a person.’ – John Green, from his novel Paper Towns.
