#studyspoonie

I don’t know whether you guys are familiar with the concept of studyspo, but I come across it quite a lot, on both Tumblr and Instagram. Both platforms have their own studyspo communities (studyblr and #studygram respectively) of people who post aesthetic pictures of their notes and schoolwork to inspire and motivate others to study — as well as to celebrate their own progress, of course. There are some particular hallmarks of the kind of things people tend to post,…

Being Broken Doesn’t Always Suck

Being Broken Doesn’t Always Suck

It can be difficult to see the bright side of all the health problems I’ve had in the past year. Hard to see what’s so great at trekking up to London to talk to specialists who can only tell me that I have to get strong to stop myself from falling apart and don’t, actually, have a magic cure for everything. Hard to see the positive part of being exiled from my musical instruments and the ensembles that were my…

December (Retrospect and Reminiscing #12)

December (Retrospect and Reminiscing #12)

December. This is, the last one! And I’m writing it before December has technically finished, but hey, how much am I likely to do tomorrow? Very little, is the answer. I’m currently fighting my third draft of The Quiet Ones instead of doing the mountain of homework that needs to be done this week, so tomorrow’s going to be fairly busy. I’m not sure if it’s my facial expression or what, but for some reason I really remind myself of…

September (Retrospect and Reminiscing #9)

September (Retrospect and Reminiscing #9)

Ah, September. The month where holidays end and school resumes and therefore I made a lot more videos than in previous months because I was procrastinating. I’m going to keep this post as concise as possible because I’ve had a massive allergic reaction and my face is itching like a horde of evil piskies are crawling across the skin, so let’s get on with it. I made four videos in September. One was a recap of my summer holiday, one…

July (Retrospect and Reminiscing #7)

July (Retrospect and Reminiscing #7)

I know, it’s Christmas, and I’m blogging about summer, whatever. I didn’t think I’d get enough into the Christmas thing not to want to write this today, because I wasn’t really feeling it, but hey, I have to rip these new CDs at some point – might as well blog while I’m doing it, right? Instead of a mugshot, here’s a full-body picture of me taken while in Spain with my orchestra at the end of the month. I’m not…

The Hardest NaNoWriMo Of My Life

The Hardest NaNoWriMo Of My Life

In 2009, I signed up for National Novel Writing Month for the first time on the 7th November, despite the fact that I was a week into the challenge with no characters or plot having never written a novel before. Most people were pretty sure I wouldn’t make the 50k mark, but I did, in 15 days flat. It was my first completed novel, and while it wasn’t great, I was able to harvest ideas from it to write another…
