post for blogs: LScott Poetry

I love reading these poems for a quick happiness pick-me-up Who? LScott Poetry What? A blog about, you guessed it, poetry! When? Every other day, approximately. Where? http://www.lscotthoughts.com Why? I like the Haikus. They appear short and sweet but somehow, LScott manages to pack a bit of a punch into them. They make you feel […]

Reader Appreciation Award, Ta! (:

I am so incredibly lucky and full of gratitude for receiving this nomination from Write and Wrong who is a wonderful and encouraging blogger by the name of Bob Othman. Thank you! So, I’ve copy and pasted the ‘rules’ here:- As with awards, there are things to be done and rules to follow when you are a […]

The Big Issue costs £2.50…do you pay for the paper or the face?

Today, I bought the big issue for the first time. Partly to read something on the bus. Partly to look at a different type of journalism. Was it worth my £2.50? Yes. One hundred percent. Will I buy it every week from now on? Yes. One hundred percent. Why? Did I enjoy it? Yes. It’s […]

5 things to know before you begin any work experience

Working in an office is not like working in the office. It will (I guarantee) be boring at some points, if not all points. The people there will not be insane/unsociable rejects of normal society. They will be normal people with their own friends and their own lives; not there to make your work experience […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

I am so late again. I’m cutting it so fine I know; I have literally 107 minutes to upload this picture using my very old phone and very dodgy internet connection. And, to be completely honest, it’s not a great picture. ‘Fleeting moment’ doesn’t say much to me. It makes me think of chaos. Of […]

“It’s all I have”, I told the hungry eyes.

Today, I was having a hard day. Or a hard-ish day more like. I was shattered and waiting for the weekend desperately. I was hot. I was bored. And I’d been stuck in an office for about five hours. I needed a break. So I took a short walk outside my office building. Just around […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Create

A teeny bit late- I’m sorry- but here we go. So, CREATE! In my opinion, every single person on WordPress who blogs, has ‘created’ something almost as incredible as a work of art or a novel or a classic film. Blogging takes time and hard work and creativity and you have to care. All these things […]

The Room of Lost Things, Stella Duffy

“…falling into the missing ‘t’ of his South London childhood.” The Room of Lost Things is the story of a lonely, lost dry cleaner who sees all the typical life of South London through his windows. I read the book straight after the riots in London last year, and this book makes regualar reference to […]

And whatever you do today should be what you should have done the day before yesterday.

If it should have been done yesterday It will be done today. If it will be done today It could be done tomorrow. If you will do it tomorrow you will undoubtedly never do it. Only do today what you should’ve done the day before yesterday. Unless it’s too late to do what you should […]

The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins

“You don’t forget the face of the person who was your last hope.” Despite the Hunger Games being a major film and book series now, when my Grandad got me the first book for Christmas, I actually had no idea about the series. In fact I was a tiny bit worried as sometimes my Grandaddy can […]
