I was really excited to watch “Monuments Men”. My thought process was: “How could a film that features and is directed by George Clooney, promises adventure, World War II, a good joke here or there and an insight into the stolen artworks of Europe be anything but fabulous?”
I’ve just applied for a production course within my BA that will lead to my specialisation in Journalism. Two things have happened since I handed in my application portfolio:
1. I have had a series of disturbing nightmares (that’s if I can fall asleep before the sun rises). Last night, I dreamt that they rejected me on the basis of my grade 11 marks and that was particularly upsetting after how long I spent putting together my portfolio. The worst is the reoccurring one in which everybody who applied gets their picture posted on Facebook with the text: “ACCEPTED” or “REJECTED” spread diagonally across the photo (social media is inundating my brain for the worse – blame exams).

I have entered a 6-word-story competition on ReadWave. Basically – you have to tell a story in only 6 words. Pretty simple – but quite difficult. The winner gets MONEY. Yes, MONEY.

I’m very available for criticism.

I’m studying Film and Media (fondly referred to as “FAM” by all those who study it) and we are required to create a new blog as an assignment. Mine is about weirdness and the world wide weirdos you come across daily. GO READ IT.
The Facebook mob mentality never ceases to amaze me. It took no time at all for the “nomination” trend to inundate my newsfeeds with people taking “no make up selfies” in support of Breast Cancer and even less time for the haters to grab their pitchforks. Continue reading
“Love thy neighbour”… unless they are psychotic. This year, I have moved into what is referred to as a “digs” in the student world with 3 of my best friends. Usually, a digs is distinguishable by its wild, joyous nature and one can expect noise, parties and very late nights from such accommodation. Continue reading
