My Degree Results Are In!

Exciting news! I found out I’ll be graduating university with a high First Class degree in computer science. I’m so happy with myself I could scream!

I’m so proud of myself!

Four very hard, very demanding and very tearful years of university have come to an end and at least I have something incredible to show for it. I may no longer want to pursue this industry but there’s no doubt that, if I ever wanted to find a place back into computing, I’d be welcome with this qualification.

Before the release of my results, I was actually pretty down about graduating. I don’t want to walk onto stage in front of hundreds of people – I feel sick just thinking about it. There’s so many outdated, old-fashioned rules that have to be followed during a graduation ceremony too, so it’s really not my cup of tea. But, now I have my results, it feels like it can be an actual celebration. A goodbye to two of the best and two of the worst years of my life. University has been an absolute rollercoaster of emotions!

During this time, me and Matthew built our little family together. We wouldn’t have our home if we didn’t decide to study at The University of Hull. We wouldn’t have our cats. Our life is wonderful and, despite the ups and downs we faced at university, coming home together was always happy.

8 Female-Led Movies I’m Excited About

2016 brought with it the rise of the female-led movie! Whether that’s down to the recent rise in gender equality expose or it’s simply a coincidence, I don’t care either way. I’m just excited to see some fantastic actresses – including Emily Blunt and Mia Wasikowska – take their rightful place as top dog.

Alice In Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass

There’s a handful of female-led movies being released this year that I’m super excited to watch. Some are future hits and some, admittedly, aren’t taking themselves too seriously but we all need a little fun in our lives at times. If I only watched serious movies, instead of the odd comedy or animation here and there, I’m sure I’d be a much more intolerable and unhappy lady.

Divider

Making sure I covered a wide range of genres, here’s my pick of 8 female-led movies that I’m looking forward to in 2016:

Alice Through the Looking Glass

“Alice returns to the whimsical world of Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter.”

Thankfully, this Tim Burton extravaganza was recently released in the UK and I’m eagerly awaiting the day I pop to the cinema to watch it. I’ve had Alice Through the Looking Glass on my radar for a while now and, with the story of Lewis Carroll’s Alice having such a fond place in my heart, I didn’t ever doubt that Tim Burton’s sequel would pass me by without a watch.

What I enjoy so much about his Alice in Wonderland adaptations is the colour and the fancifulness. I think it’s completely reminiscent of Lewis Carroll’s madness. There surely isn’t anyone better than Tim Burton to adapt Carroll’s story… they’re both bonkers.

Related: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (Book Review)

The Boss

“A titan of industry is sent to prison after she’s caught insider trading. When she emerges ready to re-brand herself as America’s latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget.”

I absolutely love Melissa McCarthy. I think she’s just hilarious and I’m willing to give anything ago if she’s the star. This comedy clearly isn’t taking itself very seriously at all but I couldn’t care less. It looks fun, silly and I’m sure I’ll be leaving the cinema with a grin on my face.

The Girl on the Train

“A train commuter investigates a mystery revolving around a couple whose house she passes every day.”

When I first watched the trailer for this movie, me and Matthew barely breathed. It looks fantastically intense and I’m sure this mysterious thriller is going to be right up my street! I haven’t actually read the book so I barely know a thing about the plot, other than it’s a bit psychological and possibly a little ‘did she? didn’t she?’ – that’s what the trailer seems to highlight, anyway.

We’ll see though! I have a feeling this is going to be a huge hit so I’ll make sure I don’t miss my chance to see it at the cinema.

Lights Out

A woman is haunted by a creature that only appears when the lights go out.

This is definitely a movie that I should not watch (horrors stay with my for years) but I’m not sure I’ll be able to resist… It’s a collaboration of two film companies, Atomic Monster and New Line Cinema, that previously worked together on Annabelle (another movie I would sure as hell never ever watch). However, this horror is based on a viral short film that made its way around the internet a few years ago. You can find that here but be warned, if you’re a little bit of a scaredy cat then you maybe shouldn’t watch it.

I think producing a movie around this fantastic short film is a great idea and I have a feeling that’s why the movie interests me so much.

Bad Moms

“When three overworked and under-appreciated moms are pushed beyond their limits, they ditch their conventional responsibilities for a jolt of long overdue freedom, fun, and comedic self-indulgence.”

Bad Moms looks hilarious. I’m sure a lot of mums will appreciate what this comedy is trying to highlight and everyone else will be able to recognise the “oh, f**k it” attitude that we all feel once in a while! It seems like this is the first movie where Mila Kunis, renowned sex symbol, is actually playing a mum – thankfully, she isn’t being portrayed as the typical frumpy mum (which is definitely a stereotype that needs to bugger off) and I’m sure that’ll make this movie that little bit more relatable.

Finding Dory

“The friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish reunites with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family along the way.”

After 13 years, we finally get to see Dory, Nemo and Marlin hit the big screen once again. I am beyond excited for this release! Dory is a wonderfully sweet character and I’ve always wondered what happened to her, her memory and her family. To finally have some answers will be lovely.

It seems as if the movie doesn’t actually have a villain as such. It’s been suggested that life itself it Dory’s enemy. That’ll be a very interesting plot line if that’s the case! I can’t wait.

Morgan

“Morgan is about a corporate risk-management consultant who has to decide and determine whether or not to terminate an artificial being’s life that was made in a laboratory environment.”

How could I resist a science-fiction thriller whose protagonist, an artificial being created in a lab, has the same name as me? That’s a little shallow, I know, but my name used to be a huge insecurity of mine so, now I’m comfortable with it, I like to revel in its glory!

Shallow name vanity aside, this movies looks like it could be fantastic. The trailer is suspenseful but doesn’t give too much away. I do like a bit of mystery.

Ghostbusters

“30 years after Ghostbusters took the world by storm, the beloved franchise makes its long-awaited return. Director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today.”

This is a biggie. Ghostbusters seems to have created quite a stir around the online film community – it hasn’t even been released yet and people are slating it. Is is because people disapprove of the female casting choices or it it simply because people are cross they’re revamped a classic? Either way, this hatred is no way to be acting over a movie that you haven’t seen. It could be fantastic, it could be terrible. As of yet, nobody knows.

Personally, I think it looks great. I love the choice of actresses and to revamp a classic with such a twist (oh hello, completely female lead) is pretty refreshing. Actually, it’s quite brave considering how much hatred the feminist movement is getting right now. I’m looking forward to it!

Are you looking forward to any of these movies?

Currently, I Am… | #7

Hi, friends! Happy “hump day” – I hope you’ve had a great week so far.

This is going to be the most positive “Currently, I Am” post that I’ve shared for a few months (yay) so that’s good news. In April, I managed to muster up a pretty positive catch-up but before that they haven’t exactly projected happiness for a while and I apologise! That’s all changed now, though.

Honestly, I’ve had a really good couple of weeks. After being off work sick for a while, I finally returned with absolutely no problems. It was like I never left but in a good way. I’m noticeably happier and I feel as if I even look healthier – clear eyes, clear skin etc. Currently, everything is just way more positive. Granted, I’m tired. Getting back to work was tough, but I’m happy to be there!

Anyway, let’s get back to the real topic. What have I been up to recently!?

Divider

Currently, I am watching

…right this second, SacconeJoly vlogs on YouTube. We had a pretty busy week and we couldn’t keep on top of them. So, whilst eating our tea, we had a bit of a catch up!

In general,  I’m still re-watching Supernatural with Matt (we’re on series 9) as well as eagerly awaiting the new episodes of series 11. That’s about it! We’re thinking of starting Modern Family for a bit of fun when we have 20 minutes to burn, so that should be good.

I’ve been in such a film mood recently too but I haven’t found the time to  watch any in the last few weeks. I’m super excited for so many films – I think I’ll be finally seeing X-Men: Apocalypse soon (can’t wait!) and, huge news, the first trailer for Beauty and the Beast was finally released. My heart melted and it was only the tiniest of snippets so I can’t even imagine how excited I’ll be when the film comes out next year!

Currently, I am listening to…

…a lot of Absolute Classic Rock and Absolute 80’s – my two favourite radio stations, and they’re both fantastic to listen to when I’m sat at my desk working!

Currently, I am reading

…nothing, right this second. I finished A Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes this afternoon which was absolutely incredible. Wow. I’ll be reviewing it on my blog very soon because I’d love to share my opinions on it. Before that, I read Alice in Wonderland and you can read my review here.

I’m finally out of my reading slump!

Currently, I am feeling

…pretty fantastic, really! I’m quite tired today because I had a terrible night’s sleep last night. In comparison to the last few months though, I’m feeling great. Right now, I’m also feeling lovely and warm and cosy, which is always good. It seems like everything is looking up! Let’s hope the second half of 2016 is far, far, far better than the first.

Currently, I am playing

…so much Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. So much. I need an intervention. I need help. Seriously though, I’m loving this game. It’s not my cup of tea at all (well, I didn’t think it was) but since buying it last month or so, me and Matt can’t drag ourselves away from it when we’re free from normal, grown-up commitments.

I also started Ori and the Blind Forest on the Xbox One recently which is a super beautiful platform adventure game. I’m sure I’ll be reviewing this on my blog once I’ve completed the story because it has been fascinating, heart-breaking and fun in equal measures.

Currently, I am excited for…

…a little country break away with my mum in June. We’re going to stay at a hotel on the outskirts of Scarborough for a night, just the two of us, and we’re both so bloody excited!

I’m also very excited for Matthew at the moment as he finished the final essay of his degree this afternoon and is only one more exam away from completely his 3 years at university! Then, he graduates in July and starts a year of teacher training in September… I’m such a proud fiancé!

Reasons To Love Spring

Whenever it’s autumn, I always fuss about how it’s my favourite season. I coo over the romantic walks in crispy leaves, the candles, the colours and its proximity to Christmas! At the time, it’s perfect. Then we have to trawl through a couple more months of winter and the romanticising of autumn is forgotten.The January Blues are like a giant kick in the backside after a season full of sweetness, reminding us autumn has long gone.

Spring doesn’t do that to us though. Once we’ve had our fill of fresh breezes, crisp blue skies and nature’s spring bloom, we’re met with summer. Even if there isn’t much sun – I do live in England, after all – summer brings with it a smile on almost everyone’s face.

So, I’m going to change my mind. I think spring is my favourite season. (I bet you come September, I’ll have changed my mind all over again!)


My Favourite Things About Spring

Nature:

Without a doubt, my favourite thing about the spring season is reintroducing myself to nature. Spring is so pretty. The parks, woodlands, fields and even footpaths are filled with colourful flowers, birds and squirrels. I feel like a Disney princess sometimes. It’s all so beautiful.

IMG_0186

Fresh Air:

Now the weather isn’t as icy cold, getting out on the weekends is something to look forward to. Fresh air makes me feel so healthy too.

Positivity and Smiles:

I’m not too sure what it is about spring that makes me feel so uplifted, but it just does. It’s either the passing of the winter blues, the beauty of nature or the bit of sun we get. All three of those makes me happy.

Spring Colours:

The greys and blues are gone. Spring is full of colour, whether that’s in fashion, food or nature. I always bring some colourful flowers into the home in spring.

More Local Events:

January and February are a bit closed off in terms of local events and things to do, certainly in my city. In the spring though, parks hold more events and with Easter just around the corner, I’ve found that craft fairs seem to pop up almost everywhere!

Skipton Craft Fair

Baby Animals:

I know I’ve already mentioned nature, but seriously… all the baby animals deserve their own mention on this list. Lambs are one of the sweetest looking, precious little animals in this world. It’s so lovely to see them jumping around.

That Spring Smell:

You so know the smell I’m talking about. It smells like wind and freshly cut grass and ponds. I love that smell. It reminds me of school, actually!

Lighter Nights:

Thankfully, the sun setting at 4pm has left us for another year. I’m scared of the dark so having to leave work in the darkness of night is never nice for me. It won’t be long until those 9pm jaunts to the shops are still bright though!

Sunset at East Park, Hull

Wearing Skirts:

I can’t stress enough how excited I am to feel pretty again. I always feel like such a lump in the winter, because I really couldn’t care less about looking good when there’s a super cosy coat, scarf and thermal gloves waiting for me. All those skirts and sandals in my wardrobe are just waiting eagerly to be loved again…

Going Camping:

Camping is always going to be a part of me, but you can’t really camp in the winter unless you’re a badass hiker or something. In late March/early April, I’ll be packing up and packing out once again – probably to Aldbrough. The outdoors is my favourite place to be.

10 Famous Movies I Haven’t Seen

There are hundreds (literally hundreds… I made a list) of famous movies that I haven’t got around to watching. Yet, throughout the 4 years of our relationship, me and Matt have given it a really good try – there’s now a considerable dent in that list.

To keep all of this progress neat and organised, I store the movies I want to catch up with, the movies I’ve watched and their rating on IMDB. It’s practically Goodreads, but for films.

When I was recently scanning through this monster of a list, I noticed a huge number of iconic, ultimate “best films of all time”. A lot of the films I watch and enjoy aren’t considered huge hits – small budgets and interesting plots interest me a lot more than an all-star cast and explosions – and over the past 2 years, with us owning memberships to CineWorld, we watch a lot of new releases. The classics are sadly being left behind.

Saying that, there’s an insane number of blockbusters that I really do want to watch. Matt is going to be so pleased… these are the ones he’s been suggesting I watch for years, and I’m finally in the mood to crack open that endless box of classics.

Divider

My 10 most-anticipated famous films, that I haven’t seen (yet):

Jaws:
Jaws

 

“You’re gonna need a bigger boat…” How have I lived 21 years on this planet and never seen one of the most famous films of all time?

I can’t swim anyway, so the concept of Jaws never freaked me out of the water, but I really wanna see a giant shark go all badass on a load of holiday makers.

The Godfather:

The Godfather

I would be absolutely loaded if I had a pound for every time Matt talked about, quoted or wanted to watch The Godfather. It’s official, I have caved and I’m ready to lose my Godfather virginity.

There are so many references to this movie in popular culture that I kind of have to watch it so I can keep up …

The Silence of the Lambs:

The Silence of the Lambs

Honestly, this type of film is right up my alley… Thrillers are my absolute favourite, and I have no doubts that I’ll enjoy this movie.

Psycho:

Psycho

Alfred Hitchcock is a legend, and Psycho (arguably the most famous of his films) is one I haven’t seen. Ridiculous, I know, and when I went through that huge Hitchcock phase I should have watched it, I know… but… I didn’t.

But I will.

American History X:

American History X

I pretty much only know two things about this film: neo-Nazi skinheads and the tooth curb scene. Oh, and Edward Norton. I don’t recall watching him in anything other than Fight Club, but he was absolutely brilliant.

I think this is one I’m looking forward to watching the most!

Alien:

Alien

None of them. None of the Alien movies. What is wrong with me? I have the full box set, including all the Predator movies too, waiting for me at home and I just haven’t got around to watching them.

Saying that, they’re pretty much my idea of perfect.Science Fiction is my babe.

The Shining:

The Shining

I’ve seen way too many parodies of this movie for me to not watch it (The Simpsons one was clearly the best). I’ve also put off reading Stephen King’s novel for way too long, thinking it’s too scary for me.

We’ll see. Sometimes I like a good scary movie. I just have to prepare myself for the weeks for sleepless nights afterwards! Scaredy cat…

Singin’ in the Rain:

Singin in the Rain

“Singin’ in the Rain” is one of my all-time favourite songs, and Gene Kelly is life. I can’t believe I didn’t watch this sooner.

I’ll be going through a huge classic film purge soon – I’ll be watching Elvis, Marilyn, Ginger and Fred for my 101 Things in 1001 Days challenge!

The Wolf of Wall Street:

The Wolf of Wall Street

A huge hit that we just missed. No fault of anybody’s but Time, and isn’t she a pain in the arse? It’s quite a long film too… you could fit 6 episodes of Parks and Recreation into the length of this film!

Leo, crime, money and corruption though. Yes, please.

Casablanca:

Casablanca

It’s one of those films that is drilled into you as an ultimate romantic classic. Even saying or reading the word Casablanca makes me swoon, and I don’t even know the plot.

I don’t care – it’s renowned as a classic must-see, and was released in 1942. It survived 73 years, and people still talk about it.

How many of these have you seen? Which one was your favourite?

Saturday’s Super Six | Christmas Films

Christmas films always put me in a festive spin, but this year I haven’t sat down and had a proper Christmas movie marathon yet. Less than two weeks to go, I don’t have a lot of time! Don’t worry, little me… “It’s a Wonderful Life” is downloading as we speak!

This week’s Saturday’s Super Six will definitely add a bit more festive cheer to my blog! Enjoy.

You can view my other “Saturday’s Super Six” posts here:

Elf:

“After inadvertently wreaking havoc on the elf community due to his ungainly size, a man raised as an elf at the North Pole is sent to the U.S. in search of his true identity.”

Elf Christmas Film

I don’t think I could commit to choosing an ultimate favourite Christmas film… but Elf is pretty close. I can’t even gush enough about how lovely and feel-good this movie actually is.

If you haven’t watched it,  then I recommend you do! Will Ferrell makes this film what it is. Any Christmas film that makes you want to believe in Santa is a hit.

Elf Christmas Film

The Polar Express:

“A young boy embarks on a magical adventure to the North Pole on the Polar Express. During his adventure he learns about friendship, bravery, and the spirit of Christmas.”

The Polar Express Christmas Film

One of the most beautiful animated films of all time, and it has an equally lovely story. Again, it makes you want to believe! Can you hear the jingle bells when you rattle them?

The Polar Express Christmas Movie

Tom Hanks is brilliant, yes. But in The Polar Express, he takes on six different roles! It’s just another reason to love the movie even more.

Love Actually:

Love Actually Christmas Film

“Follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England.”

Not only is this one of my favourite Christmas films, but it’s actually one of my favourite feel-good films in general. I watch it every year! Love Actually takes a lot of irrational hate, but they simply don’t understand the true meaning of the film.

Love Actually Christmas Film

It’s not your typical romantic comedy – it’s a film about familial love, love overcoming obstacles, first love, unrequited love, infidelity and friendship. All wrapped in one festive film. Love Actually is just gorgeous. It’s definitely worth a watch if you’re a lover of romantic comedies.

Home Alone:

“An 8-year old troublemaker must protect his home from a pair of burglars when he is accidentally left home alone by his family during Christmas vacation.”

Home Alone Christmas Film

Home Alone is a Christmas classic, and as a kid it made me wonder what it would be like to be home alone for such a long period of time! Like Kevin, I don’t think I would have enjoyed it for very long… even without the burglars.

Home Alone Christmas Film

Christmas with the Kranks:

“With their daughter away, the Kranks decide to skip Christmas altogether until she decides to come home, causing an uproar when they have to celebrate the holiday at the last minute.”

Christmas with the Kranks Film

The one with the ham… that’s how I always remember this movie, but it really is so much more than that. It’s also the one with the Frosty… the one with the old couple… the one with the cat… the one with the tan…

Christmas with the Kranks Film

Fred Claus:

“Fred Claus, Santa’s bitter older brother, is forced to move to the North Pole.”

Fred Claus Christmas Film

This film isn’t your typical family Christmas comedy – it’s definitely more of a drama. I know, Vince Vaughn and everything! It’s a full on feel-good film. Can you imagine your little brother being Santa Claus?

Fred Claus Christmas Film

I’m absolutely sure that telling you there’s a happy ending isn’t a spoiler. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Christmas film that leaves you feeling sad!

What’s your favourite Christmas film?
