Happy Ever After? You May Have Already Found It

Happy Ever After? You May Have Already Found It

I’ve been single for over seven years. I honestly thought that was never going to change. It now turns out that as I write this post there is a very strong chance that it might change. It is incredibly tempting to believe, as one friend does, that I might have found...

It is the feeling of knowing you are no longer alone. It is the surprise at someone else putting shape and structure to your thoughts. It is discovering that others have gone and lit the way ahead – you just need to find that first lantern, lamppost or shining crystal.

3 Things that the COVID Pandemic is Teaching Me

“It’s life Jim, but not as we know it”Star Trekkin’ by The Firm I’m not the only person using this popular (so popular I almost mis-referenced it) quote to sum up life right now. Let’s be honest, it does sum up 2020 pretty well. Since March, our lives have been...

6 Questions with… is an opportunity for women and girls everywhere to share something about their passions and lives. (It’s also a fantastic excuse for me to be really nosey and learn more about the incredible women I admire.)

This week I’m putting Sophie Howell in the hot seat. This woman is one of the funniest, craziest and most genuine people I know. She’s also pretty handy with a sewing machine too, which she’ll tell you more about later. To be honest, she’s much better at introducing herself so I’ll leave you in Sophie’s capable hands…

Exploring Through the MCU || Understanding The Crucifixion via a Rainbow Bridge in Thor

Exploring Through the MCU || Understanding The Crucifixion via a Rainbow Bridge in Thor

Never in a million years did I think I’d be comparing Jane Foster to Jesus. Yet after a horrendous first attempt, I’m rewriting this post on Thor to compare Natalie Portman’s character to the greatest sacrifice ever.

Well, that’s not true. Really this is about what Thor sacrificing his relationship with Jane to save the world symbolises. If you’ve seen the film, you know the scene. To prevent Loki’s destruction of Joundenheim happening, Thor destroys the rainbow bridge. In doing so, he also removes any chance of seeing Jane again. To save a world of apparent monsters, he sacrifices the woman he loves.

Charcoal, Not Ashes: A White Girl’s Response to Systemic Racism

Charcoal, Not Ashes: A White Girl’s Response to Systemic Racism

If being white meant I was British, then those who weren’t white weren’t British.

It sounded so stupid as I typed that sentence out. I never vocalised those thoughts but I didn’t have to. They were still there and that is part of the problem. It made me part of the system. The same system that makes it harder for people born with the “wrong” skin colour to live the sort of life that me, my sister, my cousins, and my friends have taken for granted.
