HG & Myka

February 16, 2012

So, I’m a little slow to this craze, but one of my latest TV loves is Warehouse 13. I’m not really sure why the show didn’t grab my attention the first time it was aired ..I mean, I love Sci-Fi and I used to want to be an archeologist once upon a time, so it really does seem to be my thing. But better late than never right?! Now, I’m truly addicted!

So much so that I am going to shamelessly plug my latest YouTube video here for you all! A HG Wells and Myka tribute (surprise, surprise!) …oh the subtext!!

Return to form…

March 23, 2011

Creatively, I’ve been out of the game a while. In a time not so long ago, I wrote poetry, songs and short stories. I made fan-videos on YouTube, and I was blogging at least once a week. I’m not exactly sure what happened to all of that, but I have missed the creative outlet I once had. I think maybe leaving University and not ‘having’ to write and be scheduled to things made some of the other parts of life similarly uninspired. Yesterday that changed. I have no idea where the flash of inspiration came from (and I’m certainly not going to complain about it!), but yesterday I sat and made a music video for the first time in 3 years. I’m blaming a TV show I’ve just become ever so slightly obsessed with… But whatever the reason, it can only be a good thing right?! I guess make the decision for yourself –

The video is based on the characters of Emily (Shay Mitchell), Maya (Bianca Lawson) and Paige (Lindsey Shaw) from the ABC Family Drama Pretty Little Liars. Set to the song Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap …hope you enjoy!

Guess lesbianism gets my creative juices flowing… :p

Oh Valentine…

Valentine’s confession…
Whenever I have a message, I always get excited to see if it’s from her. She makes me smile.

The quiet kind of happy…

January 26, 2011

I’m happy. And sadly, this isn’t something that tends to frequent my lips too much. I mean, sure there are things in life that could be better; like having a decent salary paid job, not living with my parents, or …not living with my parents. But other than the on the surface, hokey kind of things, life is pretty damn good. I have an amazing group of friends that are all slowly but surely finding themselves falling for someone, I’m getting to know someone (through FB chat of all things!) that I think I could have a real repertoire with, I’m starting to build a genuine friendship with an ex of mine (which is actually kind of nice) , Oscar season is coming up (which is a real guilty pleasure of mine), and I’ve pretty much fallen smitten for a lovely young lady. Oh, and I’m re-watching my Gilmore Girls collection that was completed for me at Christmas – what’s not to smile about?!

Hope all of your 2011’s are shaping up just as jolly 🙂

LOVE is a funny thing.
But I’m enjoying it immensely.

WORK is an annoying thing.
But I’ll be starting somewhere new in May.

GOOD TIMES all around!

The future is…

March 11, 2010

Interestingly I snapped out of lethargy for long enough the other week to apply for a job. It’s a promotion within my existing work place actually (bottom feeder to management), but a job none the less. Considering how down I usually am about my job, it’s come as a surprise (perhaps even to me) how enthusiastic I am about the prospect. For the first time in a long time I feel as though I have a goal for myself, and I have to say, I’m excited about it. I want this job.

I had my interview today, which I think went well. The problem is that I’m starting to get the feeling that the company may decide to employ externally rather than up through the ranks. The other negative is that if they do decide for an internal climbing of the ladder, not only one of my close friends, but also my girlfriend have gone for the same job – awkward much?!

Ah well, fingers crossed, hope for the best and let’s see what happens…

Happy St. David’s Day!

 

To be born Welsh,
Is to be born privileged,
Not with a silver spoon in your mouth,
But music in your blood,
And poetry in your soul.

Will you be my Valentine?

February 15, 2010

So yesterday was that one chestnut of a day where you declare your love with cards and tack… I loved every moment of it 😉

Had an amazing night with my girlfriend. We’d booked a hotel in Cardiff, and when I got to the room she’d covered the place with candles and had Rosé waiting on ice …it was all just perfect. I don’t think anyone’s ever done anything like that for me before  ❤

Here’s this weeks PostSecret to continue the mood…
