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.

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

6 Year Blog Anniversary

Every year I forget when my blog anniversary is even after six years! I know that it is in June but it is today the 15th of June!  A lot has happened in six years when I started this blog. Before my first blog post, I was going to university later that summer. Now I have a BA and MA degree! And I have tracked my progress all the way. It's a bit emotional to think about it!  I am so grateful were my blog. I enjoy the content that I make and in a year where I have basically stopped interacting with a lot of social media but my views are higher than ever. They have tripled in a year! I think this might because I have linked my blog on my job application and CVs so if you are a recruiter, Hi!  In other news, I have loved seeing the change in my content and hopefully see my writing progress and I hope that this continues. Since my first year, I hoped to track the changes in my blogging life and I love to see them. So let's get started...   Q1) Favourite Book Frankenstein by Mary She
