The story of Christmas 2015

It’s a tradition in my household to sit in front of Carols by Candlelight every Christmas Eve regardless of the quality of singing. Who are these 109-year-old men and why are here every year? “Is that one still breathing?” I’m really only (minorly) interested in Dami Im, but hey, tradition is tradition. And what getsContinue reading “The story of Christmas 2015”

Book review: Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney

All hail Sally Rooney, right? The long-awaited third novel came out mid-September, and you bet I got hands on it as soon as I could. But did it live up to Normal People’s levels of angst, frustration and complex characterisation? You bet your booty it did! It had even more!

My top 5 songs that got me through September

Ah September. What a shit show. I really racked up the Spotify listening minutes this month, but that’s not unusual in the slightest. I spend so much time listening to music on normal days and in normal life, but having not a lot else to do over the past few weeks has only increased that.Continue reading “My top 5 songs that got me through September”
