Lives Online Photoshoot!

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Aloha folks!

This week I thought I’d show something that I don’t exactly do every day..

Recently I, along with the rest of the Lives Online bloggers of this year were asked to be apart of the new University of Sunderland Prospectus, for the next academic year.

Yes, thats right. Someone, somewhere thought it would be a great idea to not only have my face online, but in a course magazine as well. Crazy I know.

All that in mind, I thought it would be a fantastic idea if I took my camera along with me to vlog it all. While it took a lot more time than I thought it would, and when I wasn’t awkwardly stood in position in fear of messing up a shot; it was actually pretty good. It has to be said though, I have a whole new level of admirition for actual legit models now. And so I should, I mean.. I am one now, right? (I’m kidding but only a little.)

Check out the video down below to see what I got up to.. Enjoy!

Music Monday #10

Monday, February 16th, 2015

BIRTHDAY EDITION OF MUSIC MONDAY SAY WHUUUUT!

Aloha, how are we all?

I’ll be honest and say that I was, for all intense purposes, pretty meh. I usually am on my birthday though, so do not fear to much. Of course, this particular birthday meh’ness was made bigger by the 5am wake-up I had. Yeah, that ought to do it right?

BUT

THEN I GOT TO FINALLY HEAR THE ALBUM I’VE WAITED AN AGE FOR!

That’s right, after wishing me a happy birthday, (Yes, that happened. Cheers lads.) Little Comets finally released their brand new album, ‘Hope Is Just a State of Mind’ and, in the most Geordie accent possible (they’re a local band, y’see) – IS PURE MINT! There honestly isn’t a track on it that I don’t like.

Down below is the 1st track on said album, it’s ‘My Boy William’.

It’s so good right? I’m right, I know. If you’re not so much a fan of LC, then that’s not ok and we just can’t be friends. Kidding. Mostly. Ha ha. Enjoyyyyy!

Turning 20 at University

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Why hello there. How might you be doing today? 

What, I’m talking strange? Well my good human, thats because today (February 16th, 2015) I turned 20 years old. So I need to talk adult now.

KIDDING. BUT NO, SERIOUSLY- I TURNED 20. CRAZY, I KNOW! 

I can’t really believe it. I’m still cracking childish jokes and not drinking coffee yet, so I’m not fully adult. Don’t worry!

As it’s a Monday, (Worst day to have a birthday, amiright?) I spent the weekend just gone, at home with the famalama. When I wasn’t working, that is.  Whilst at home, I got my camera and tripod out (because who doesn’t just always have those two things out.) and decided to film an incredibly quick video. When I say incredibly quick, I mean it- purely to not eat into too much famalama time.

Can’t quite describe what this video is.. So yeah, just watch it.

As far as my birthday at University so far- I stayed up till Midnight to open cards and my present that my flatmates got me. It was a Lava Lamp. A LAVA LAMP. YES! And then decided that because I was on the Spark Breakfast show as I normally would be, I should probably sleep. The show is now complete and YES, I AM VERY TIRED! Sadly, I’m in university till 5pm, BUT I do plan on heading to Nando’s for some food later on tonight, so there’s at least something to get me through the day!

*KLAXSON* – My favourite band, Little Comets did two awesome things. 1st, they wished me a Happy Birthday. 2nd and more majorly- released their brand new album, TODAY! So, I’m just happy thinking that was because they know it’s my birthday (just let me, ok?).

I think thats about it for this birthday post… BYE!

Music Monday’s #9

Monday, February 9th, 2015

Hola!

This Music Monday song is a TUNE and a half, let me tell you! I love it massively at the moment.

It’s ‘Hold My Hand’ from none other than Jess Glynne. If you’ve heard it before- I’m sure you’ll already agree that it’s mint, but if you’re yet to hear it- then sit down and be ready to be schooled.

[youtube id=”CcGQ1y5XtAI”]

It’s a TUNE, amiright?

FUN STORY/SONG STORY LINK TIME!

This happened to be part of the Spark Breakfast show’s playlist this morning, and it was mint. Off air, whilst it was being played- I sat enjoying it and came to a conclusion in my head and decided I’d show it with the rest of the studio..

“If I was a runner, or any way athletic for that matter, this would definitely be one of my running songs.”

And for some reason, the three of them erupted into laughter.. maybe because of the way I said it, or maybe, just maybe (probably) it was the vision of me running. Yeah, it’s not pretty but it sure is funny!

Rightttttt, that is about it for this Music Monday.

Cheers pals, till next time!

Media Hub ‘Look Video’

Monday, February 9th, 2015

Hello amigos,

For my first proper video of 2015 I thought I’d make a little ‘Look Video’ so that you get to have a little tour of a space I use all of the time at University. Seriously- I’m in it everyday!

The Media Hub! It’s a fantastic space that’s great to be in. It’s creative, friendly, busy and very jazzy.

Cheers pals, I’m glad to be back.  Till next time!

Month/Weekend Away!

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

Hello my amigos. I hope you’re doing well.

I think it’s safe to say it’s been a little quiet on the ol’ blogosphere during January. BUT, I have reasons!

– My Mac decided it wasn’t happy with our relationship and needed some time away. (Yes, it broke and I needed to take it in for repair.) WHICH, caused the footage I had and was editing to go live, completely cease to exist.

– I myself had to go to the doctors for some stuff. I’m planning on making a video about in the coming days.. Which, also sounds incredibly weird, but trust me- It’ll be a worthy watch. I hope.

– I decided that, as a knock on effect to the aforementioned doctors visit I’d take a little R&R time. Kind of. Basically I just lightened the load on myself for a week or two!

BUT, after heading for a weekend away with my flatmates, I’m back! Back, after seeing the first month of 2015 off in a pretty nice way. Yes, it may have been insanely cold, but it was filled with laughs, driving, drinks, food and friends. What more could you ask for?

We headed to Morecambe, the home town of two of my friends/flatmates. It’s a lovely place!

We headed down to attend a local charity gig that comedian Jon Richardson arranges yearly. It was a fantastic night and a fantastic mix of laugh providers that we actually ended up going out with after. Including Angela Barnes, (Watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMoSv_amUgU – STRONG LANGUAGE.) who I, at literal first meeting, for some reason decided to shake hands with. Straight away- just went in there for a handshake.

Here’s the problem with that- we were in one of the most casual of bars filled with people. Handshake. What did I think it was, a job interview?

Bay beaut. #Morecambe #MorecambeBay #Beach #MuchCold #MuchWind #LivesOnline

BUT, alas it was a fantastic time. Thanks to Shannon’s famalama to being top notch hosts, and to Ben’s for being just as nice! Lets end with a photo with Jon, my flatmates and myself. Happy days!

 

Cheers pals, I’m glad to be back. (Not that I ever really went away!) Till next time!
