Mondays are for Celebrating

Hello, you!   Today I was reunited with my best friend Leila – one of the most positive and sunny natured people I know. We were both super excited see each other after a fair while apart so we decided to continue our long standing tradition of eating a double cheeseburger and playing absolute TUNES… Us singing together in the car rapidly escalated to us blasting out the songs and singing to strangers passing by, lucky them! We had SO much fun, call us sad if you wish but you can get a lot of happiness from driving round with happy songs playing at full volume, singing at the top of your voice – especially when the sun is shining. It was so entertaining that we ended up doing it for around THREE hours, driving allllll over the city and into different car parks. By the end of it, we had experienced a full range of reactions… The most common reaction we had was people smiling or laughing at us, we massively enjoyed this, it’s nice to think you’ve made someone smile even a little bit, isn’t it? As for the laughing, we will gladly be the laughing stock so… View Post

Faith in Humanity

Hello, you!   It seems like every day there are more reports about horrific events occurring around the world and my heart absolutely breaks for the people that are suffering. Of course, it’s vital that these stories get news time, but when you’re feeling shitty already they can really take a toll – one of my friends messaged me the other day saying ‘the world is fucked and I can’t be arsed with it’ and I get that, because look at the horrors that are going on around us. However, I do genuinely believe that there’s ultimately more good in the world than bad, and every so often there’ll be a gem of a story about a random act of kindness and I’m reminded that there are some wonderful people out there. Here are a few… 1 I’ve been lucky enough to go to Jamaica twice and it has become my favourite place I’ve travelled to, purely because of the wonderful people I’ve had the privilege to meet. The country is so poor in wealth but so rich in society and life values. While I was there, we spoke to a lovely waitress, Natalla, every day. One time, we talked to… View Post

We need to talk about… Soul Pancake

Hello, you! We need to talk about Soul Pancake. Soul Pancake create the most life affirming and uplifting content that never fails to cheer me up. Having been a subscriber to their YouTube channel for a good few years now, their videos always bring a smile to my face – no matter how rubbish I might be feeling. Their video ‘Take a Seat, Make a Friend’ is quite possibly my favourite thing on the internet. They invite strangers into a ball-pit (because why should it only be children that get the fun?) and ask them to talk about particular topics. It’s no good me explaining it, watch the video for yourself… Just bloody lovely, heartwarming stuff, right? The most important thing for me about Soul Pancake is how they tackle big issues and don’t shy away from them. Right now, they’re doing a series of videos called ‘How You See Me’ where people describe their experience of having a disability, coming from an Asian background and being a member of the LGBTQ community, to name only a few! Then, there is the legend that is, Kid President. Honestly, this kid has sass levels that could rival Beyonce’s. In the video ‘A Pep… View Post
