Reading/Blogging and University

So I have just finished my first term or semester at university and it has definitely been an experience and one of firsts. But the weird thing was I did expect to have tons of free time. I thought that the twenty or so books that I bought with me would be read in the three months I was there and that my blog would maintain the state that it was before university, posting five or six posts a week and talking about books. But..

I was wrong...

I was completely and totally wrong. I found that university was harder than expected. It is not just about the learning new material about a subject that you love it was so much more. It was about making new friends and meeting new people and learning to be independent. I finally learnt how to do my own washing! But this and learning meant that I was getting a really long reading list and I had about three essays, this meant that I was reading loads so after a long day of reading the last thing that I wanted to do was pick up a book. Instead I would watch films that I had not seen and watch a lot of amazon prime including watching a lot of the TV series Skins because that TV show is really good. Although I make university sound like the worse thing in the world, it is not all bad. I did manage to read 10 books at university with the three essays due in and that I did have some free time in the start. Also I did manage to blog... OK it was for a week but it was still an attempt at blogging at university. 

So I guess this is yet another life update post. I guess that I can also say that I am off for a month due to Christmas so I am going to see how many blog posts I can get before I go to university. 

More blog posts soon...

See you soon, 

Amy

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

Considering this keeps gaining attention, I just wanted to clarify that I no longer support J.K. Rowling and the Harry Potter series. I'm not sure why people are clicking on this but, the views in this post do not reflect my current views and I only posted it on my blog so that it could be shared as not many people came to the event when it first happened.  So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is... Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you
