Seeing as everyone, including me loves the 2004 film "The Notebook" I finally included it in a design that I'd had in mind for a while, especially since I listed it on my Profile as one of my favourite films!

This is the highly colourised version, which, after some long deliberation I decided looked better - more effective than a paler (slighly less surreal) version, but hey, it's summer, it's the holidays, the beginning of irregular blog updates and much travelling so I thought, why not?

Je ne regret rien. This image isn't mine, I'm not even going to lie, I found it on the internet, I have no idea who made it but for me it sums up perfectly the phenomenon that is Harry Potter, that I have enjoyed for the last 10 years of my life and hopefully hereafter. I just watched the last part of Deathly Hallows and genuinely feel like it is the end of my childhood, everything's coming to an end and it's time for us all to have our own adventures, "a new beginning" which fittingly is the name of the music played at the end of the film. I know not everyone grew up with Harry Potter, but for me this is actually the end of an era, and although I regret nothing I'll forever be grateful for J.K.Rowling for getting me through some of the darkest times in my life, and for giving so many people a place of magic to retreat to, whatever happens next.

For the next few weeks my updates will be pretty irregular, summer holidays start this week and I'll be travelling around everywhere and won't always have computer access. Hope everyone's enjoying the summer and I'll make some nice new images whenever I can!

One Year On

It's been officially a year since my first blog post! How quickly time passes, I genuinely can't believe it, so much has happened and so much has yet to happen - here's to another year, it's been hard at times but great.

In the last week I've visited Oxford and looked around Worcester college, a year after I was taken on the school on an open day to Wadham - had a fantastic time. The course I want to do looks great there - as does everything! Although I know it's unlikely that I would get in it's nice to know there are places as nice as this in case I do! :3

It was always going to happen, and by that I mean the Pride & Prejudice themed image, on account of it being one of my favourite books and films of all time. Don't know if it's Elizabeth Bennet's before-her-time "independent woman" behaviour or Colin Firth as Mr.Darcy. Probably both.

Spent the last 3 days travelling, only just got home and therefore have a lovely mountain of schoolwork to do! Have now visited the universities LSE (London School of Economics and Political Sciences) and UEA (University of East Anglia, Norwich) such different places and so many more choices! It certainly is an exciting time of the year, before AS results when all of my options are still well and truly open, and therefore I'm taking all the chances to visit anywhere that I can knowing that in just over a year's time, I could be living there...
