My leap: Acapella 

I’ve been at my new school for six weeks and my greatest moment of pride so far has been performing in the Autumn concert with the acapella girls.  I never used to sing! Not even infront of my closest friends. I didn’t have the confidence! My parents can both sing (Dad you need to join the band as a lead singer) , so I took the odds that I could too.

The music stopped and a round of applause followed as I came out of my trance and walked … Continue reading Dancing with a stranger

Too tired TV

How much TV a lazy and sleepy teenager enjoying the rain with a fluffy cushion and too many boxsets can watch in a week (unless otherwise specified)… Miranda: Whole series -Classic British comedy which reminds me of my primary school best friend who loved this and reminds me of my childhood. -Easy to watch (perfect 4pm awkward afternoon time watching) and hugely funny while staying relatable The big C: Season 1 -It is about a mother who gets cancer which is serious but it is a comedy and is all expressed positively -Easy to watch and great characters once you get … Continue reading Too tired TV
