I'm going to try and keep this one short (for once!). So, I was watching an interview with my favourite musician (if you've read my blog before, you'll know who), and after spending most of the chat being rather blunt and staring moodily towards the floor, something the host said caused him to suddenly look … Continue reading Be Humble, or Be Confident?
I'm so, SO happy to have reached 100 followers on my blog! When I started this, I used be over the moon if I got just one view in a day, the fact that somebody out there was actually reading my content gave me - and still gives me - tingles. I still remember being … Continue reading 100 Followers!!
(PS (or rather, Pre-S): I actually took this photo myself while on holiday in Portugal a few months ago. Considering the fact that most of my photographs involve either a great big thumb obscuring half the picture, or a telegraph pole poking straight up from the head of the person in the photo, I was … Continue reading Mata Mata Madhyana

Back in sixth form, I remember being sat in the computer room, and my best friend tapped me on the shoulder. He was pinching in between his eyes, you know, like when you mock cry at something. Except when he looked up, there seemed to be genuine despair etched into his expression. What was wrong?? … Continue reading Mood Music: Stay Down or Turn Up?
I was so upset when Avicii announced last year that he was retiring from DJing duties for health reasons. I’d just ecstatically devoured his 2015 album, Stories, and was eagerly anticipating a follow-up. And then he went and told us that there would be no follow-up. Not in 2016, not in 2017, not ever. So, … Continue reading Why Would I Replace The Sky? – Avicii Avïci (01) EP Review

I’ve written before about my love for the app Genius, which holds explanations and analyses of pretty much every music and poetry lyric in existence. So, for me, Genius is like Disneyland in an app. Why don’t they have real-life libraries like this? So we can just go in and read about Jay-Z’s latest album … Continue reading themaximoLyrics.1 – Drake, Furthest Thing
On a gap year, it’s easy to get bogged down. Whether it stems from the feeling that you should be doing something more productive than just reading Philosophy (well, Kevin Hart’s autobiography, but it’s kind of philosophical…), blogging and playing golf, or whether it’s the frightening silhouette of University looming constantly on the horizon. I’m … Continue reading Gap Year Trav.ails to Trav.els – Florence and Pisa, Italy
