New Year, New Me?

For so many people a new year means to reinvent themselves. Do more exercise. 
Read more books. Go vegan. Lose weight.

This was me too.

"Starting tomorrow. I'm doing to do this." I would tell myself. "Definitely tomorrow." Fully aware that I could start today and get the ball rolling. But no... Always tomorrow.

I think that this is the thing. We tell ourselves that we are doing to things the next day and that day is going to define 
the rest of ourselves.

But it doesn't.

Two weeks in and it's the same story. Tomorrow. Always tomorrow.

Why never today? Honestly, I don't know because we tell ourselves that we fail one day then we have to stay again but why can't we just continue. At the end of the day, we are human.

Life isn't smooth sailing. We are going to make mistakes and more importantly, we are going to learn from them because that's what we do. That's what we should do.

So to answer my own question: this new year is not the new me.

I like who I am. Am I perfect? No, but who is. I am going to spend the year being a better person. Absolutely. But I want these to improve me forever not just to forget about. I'm going to make mistakes and I am aware of that but these do not define me and I am OK with that.

So in 2020, it's a new year but the same me.

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti

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
