Welcome to Rachel

Helloooo all and welcome to the other (Dark) side of the blog :p

After just graduating from university with a degree in English Literature, and with an insane passion for film/tv/books and generally unleashing my inner geek, I thought what better way to channel that than to write a blog, full of my ramblings about life. I’m a proud fan of endless shows and films, and I always look to become interested in new things (and I have a ton of things on my list to watch/read.) But here for your enjoyment is 10 fun facts about me to start with:

  1. My dissertation was entitled ‘Representations of Family in Harry Potter’
  2. I think Joss Whedon is an utter genius with the ability to make you laugh out loud and cry buckets -anything the man does turns to gold.
  3. I have an extremely ecclectic taste and will pretty much try anything. Any suggestions on what to read or watch are always welcome!
  4. My favourite chocolate is Galaxy (but then again I like any kind of chocolate)
  5. I love Musical Theatre – I cannot sing to save my life but the experience of live theatre gives me goosebumps.
  6. I reqularly attend conventions and have met some of my favourite actors/actresses because of them.
  7. One day I would love to go travelling in America and New Zealand.
  8. I love Disney, particularly classic, and think the stories hold great morals for children.
  9. I think football is overrated but enjoy watching rugby, tennis, and athletics
  10. I often quote movies and tv shows in daily life and I’m one of those annoying people that picks up quotes easily and recites them whilst watching it.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the ride with me

Welcome To Kat

Hellooooo, welcome to my side of the blog!

First things first, thanks for visiting!

Having finnally finished the dreaded dissertation of third year, I have finally got round to making a start on the stack of books I’ve had propping my door open since the January sales; the mountain of DVDs decorating my shelves and I no longer feel guilty about going to the cinema! So what to do with all the new knowledge I now possess? Share it with the world of course.

Please expect to find a mix of happenings from my life, from books I’ve read, to films I’ve seen to new gym classes I’m trying as I bask in the freedom from university while trying to decipher whether I like adult life or not.. so far it’s a no.

So please, drink lots of coffee, eat lots of biscuits and enjoy what I write.


We Clearly Have Nothing Better To Do….

Welcome to the world and ramblings of two English graduates who enjoy watching films, reading books, and losing days to television box sets (and who clearly do not have careers yet.) What better way to use our degree than to blog our rants and raves, our musings and wisdom and share our knowledge with the world.  We write for our enjoyment so please read for your enjoyment and excuse us if we digress (I know I do don’t I Kat?)

Join our world of fun and journey with us through time, space, magic, non-magic, vampires and superheroes (but don’t worry you’ll also find some real life stuff as well) as we progress from leaving studenthood to graduatehood and to adulthood and eventually real life.

Enjoy! Kat and Rach xxx
