And there she goes again...
After a staggering 500-and something days since I last wrote, last night gave me an urge to write again. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been elected to run the USA for the next 4 years and hope, goodness, the HOPE of knowing that good people are out there has made my heart sing and skip and god knows what else.
It occured to me that I haven't so much even tried to write anything of worth and that I've been in a deep mental pit of confusion and upset, mainly due to University and Covid and moving back home etc. Just, you know, your standard "stuff" that happens once you graduate. You just don't expect to be constantly thinking about what happens next, get dangerously existential about everything and sooner or later realise you're not going to see your international mates for quite a while. And boom. An enormity of hopelessness, tears for days and staring into space with fag and 10th cup of tea in hand trying to think of something to do that isn't clubbing, complaining and constantly watching Netflix.
But I'm not here to talk about my lockdown experience. I'm writing this as an ode I suppose to New Beginnings and looking forward has unlimited possibilities. There has never been a black, female Vice President of the United States before. But quite rightly said by the omnipotent choir of life "she will not be the last". I'm incredibly excited and feel like the biggest cloud of "Trump" dread has cleared. Like the kind you get when the forecast suggests you gotta baracade the hatches and prepare for Ameggedon because, let's be honest, it was looking close was it not?
I'm very uneducated about all this at the moment. I still haven't seen what Biden's policies are but from interviews with him and Kamala the next 4 years will certainly look fairer and stronger.

Since my 2016 endeavours took me away on a lengthly haitus from writing, I've returned to revamp my lovely blog from the cobwebs and dust of the last 3 years.
They'll be a few changes over the next couple of weeks so please stay tuned!
Starting, or rather restarting, my blog includes the hashtag #BackToBlog - an opportunity for others like me who've neglected their writings/bloggings/thoughts/feelings to come back in 2019 and give blogging another go!
Time to start again!

STARTING WITH JULY/AUGUST
Maybe with a few anecdotes here and there. Maybe. Possibly. I'm trying to see things from your perspective, you may not be prepared for my Oxford First Degree English skills that I so clearly possess. (Ha.)
BOMBAY BICYCLE CLUB - T IN THE PARK
Now I only really have a few photos on my phone because it kept dying, (TIP NO. 1 ON FESTIVALS: ALWAYS BRING A PORTABLE CHARGER) but this is a decent, not-very blurry one from T!
