Plain & Simple


I feel utterly lost writing this post. I can't seem to string together one sentence around a mildly exciting topic. I see tons of bloggers captivating their audiences by writing wonderful articles week in week out on various subjects. Today I'm just going to be blatantly honest and offer you guys an update on my life, and talk about things I'm enjoying at the moment - whether you find it interesting or not. Can't I just write a simple, light article for once?

So, first things first: Summer and I binged the entire season of Riverdale in less than 4 days.


That's right - a much needed binge on Netflix caused several days of strong fatigue and disorientation, moments of complete absent-mindedness, and some Instagram creeping. We'll be writing a review soon on the 1st season of Riverdale: at first glance, a typically american-high-school-drama-with-teenage-angst, which develops into something quite wonderful. We all need a bit of escape, right? 


Fiction has always provided that escapism for me - I can always go out and about and get lost in the historical streets of London, but personally, I find my peace in the cinematic realm. What is it that draws me in? Perhaps the intrigue of new characters and human interactions, or the romanticized drama that I can't help but enjoy? Watching experiences and moments from a life that is not my own?The introduction of Netflix has opened up a whole new level of enjoyment. For introverts like myself it's both a blessing and a curse: but balance it right, and a binge can do some real good.

Besides our thorough enjoyment of the new show - Summer and I are finalising our end of year plans. Some huge changes and life-changing experiences. Excited is an understatement!


So there you have it - For those of you who stayed on till the end, I hope you enjoyed reading my thoughts about my current state of mind. Happy Thursday!
