What I do
I have recently completed a Geopolitics and Security Masters at Royal Holloway, University of London. I sometimes blog about geopolitical things I see on the news. We live in interesting times for sure.
I am currently a presenter and producer at a local community radio station in Egham, Surrey. They even trusted me to run it for a year… I post about shows I do on and off so if you like music and a lot of sarcasm then listen in
I like films and I sometimes write about the ones I’ve seen recently. I once had a website where I blogged my experiences watching all the top 250 films on the IMDb list to get me some film education. That didn’t last long but it was fun non-the-less. I might do it again but who knows…
Reading “Writing” makes it feel to me more grand than it actually is. It’s really just blogging about everything and anything. I write mainly just to prove to myself I can. To keep updating something constantly, something I can look on and be somewhat proud of in the future.
Well the first thing you should know about me is that I am a person. A 20-something person who has many interests. As you may have seen above I have many interests and I use this site as a centralised, somewhat organised place that I keep up to date. From geopolitics, to radio, to film and even a few personal things, they are all here for you to look at. Am I sharing too much? Maybe…Who isn’t these days, either knowingly or otherwise. Oh well. To save time and fill the space to the right I have answered some important questions you might have about me. I hope this finds you well.
Breathing is important
I am quite hungry
No other explanation needed
I can do maths
As time goes by… That one line from that one film about that one thing that happened during that one time in history. That one film that everybody says is the best and everything.That one film, Casablanca, is something I’m not watching. I’m watching Passengers on a projector overlooking the sea while the rain runs Read more about As Time Goes By[…]
Here we go again … a phrase that people say after something has happened time after time after time (after time – is that what Cyndi said in that song?) or maybe the title of some comedy from 9 years ago that nobody really expected would be a thing (now does the title make sense?) Trying Read more about Here We Go Again: Not Talking About the Movie Don’t Worry[…]
This next week is all about making changes. I have time and time again said that this week will be “the one”, the one in which I get a job, the one in which I stop being so lazy, the one in which I actually go out and be active in my life, but time Read more about Making Changes: About Life and Change[…]
Maybe I’ll keep this short, or endeavour for it to be long; paragraphs and paragraphs long. At the back of my mind i have always had the notion that it is quicker to read something than to write something and now with seemly no motivation to actually get things done in time for a deadline Read more about Failure – The Start of Something New[…]
This past week has been very interesting in a whole manner of ways. I find myself in a strange position of trying not to be political for the sake of it, even though I have studied it over the course of 2 degrees. Just because I have done that in no way gives me an Read more about The Week in Review – Donald Trump and Social Media Response[…]
It is super strange… I find the whole creative process of writing something harder than it looks. I find it hard to get past the original idea. I haven’t thought of anything passed that. It goes back to the idea that I can’t be bothered to put in the work to get to the point Read more about Thoughts on Writing and Life.[…]
I wish I could write something and have my name to it but, everything I seem to write becomes an unfinished mess. I guess it never becomes anything but, rather is in a perpetual state of becoming. How profound that statement is, much like the human condition is in a state of becoming and has Read more about What I Wish: Thoughts from the King[…]
Life… Just what is it that you want to do? As this is my first real blog post on this site not related to geopolitics and radio (my two major interests) I guess I shall keep this short. I am at a stage in myself whereby I am just about to finish (for now) my Read more about Life: talking, living, doing[…]
On the 2nd of May 2016 the western public was treated to the latest recruitment video from the People’s Liberation Army, the Chinese Military. Unlike other videos produced recently by the military this latest edition has one striking difference. While it still incorporates fast paced visual cuts, instead of the traditional orchestral grandness that accompanies Read more about Guns, Rockets and Videogames: The Appeal of the Chinese Military[…]
I would class 2016 as the middle of the comic book adaption saga that’s been going on over the last decade or so. We have seen so many films, some good, some bad, and some that are just ok. One of the main draws of many of the comic book films is that they are Read more about Angry Birds Review 2016[…]
