It has been a good ten years or so when all of a sudden, we had to consent to accepting cookies on every single website we visited.

No, this is not another Oreo post… I promise.

It’s all about security and consent but gone are the days where that little box won’t show up.

2021, guys…. 2021.

Oreos are overrated

Oreos, the most overused biscuit in the history of humanity with the most lacklustre flavour of any food ever. (Or ‘cookie’ if you are… you know..)

That was until I bought an entire box of them and realised how harsh I have been to them over the years.

There is a place for you in this world I guess. Even if it is mostly reserved for the double choc variant.

Blessed are we

Yesterday, I saw comments on a Facebook post of people genuinely struggling during this pandemic.

Some comments were silent cries for help and others were desperate pleas for them to return to their motherland.

Writing dies out… only if reading does first.

In a totally media-intensive world, words that are typed are merely secondary to images and videos that they accompany.

In times where the world is a little confusing at the moment, the next time you wake up… take a moment and do not reach out for your phone. Be in complete control. Enjoy this true alone time.

My Pet Peeve

I’ve never really liked the phrase ‘pet peeve’, but it is what it is. You know what I really just can’t stand?

Microwaves.

Hear me out. (That’s right, a bit of a personal article for a change, but don’t get too comfy). Continue reading “My Pet Peeve”

The Endless Electoral Cycle

So there is a General Election (GE) approaching very quickly, here in the UK.

It’s not a matter of immediate change. Let’s be honest, nothing will change your day-to-day routine from the second that a party is elected, or at least I hope not.

But eventually… changes will come, even if they are minuscule.

For better or for worse? Only time will tell.

The reason I call it an endless electoral cycle; apart from the bleedin’ obvious, is that once a party Wohoo! has been in power for some time… a couple of terms, they always seem to F**** it up, one way or another. (I’m gonna get ya’, get ya’, get ya’, get ya’)

It’s not necessarily a bad thing, this cycle. If we break it, we won’t move forwards (or backwards), but at least we won’t be standing still eh? I hope.

Change is good.
