I am not a happy bunny. Doctor Who has cast its 13th Doctor, and like I predicted, we’re getting our first Doctor played by a woman, which is not good, in my opinion. And I really hate to say that, but I am. And now, I am going to discuss my feelings and thoughts on the matter.
From the Facebook posts, news reports of festivals and rainbow coloured stuff everywhere, It can only be one thing: Pride 2017 in London, where we celebrate the LGBT community and their freedom to be themselves. I have one problem with it…LONDON ISN’T THE ONLY PLACE IN THE COUNTRY. WHERE’S MANCHESTER PRIDE, OR LIVERPOOL PRIDE, OR BRIGHTON PRIDE? WHY NO UK PRIDE 2017? That annoys me.
I have done it, friends. I am no longer a ‘Teen’, for I have finally reached the age of 20. The birthday itself went well, a bit quiet and low-key, but I had a bit of fun at the expense of my brother. Over the last 20 years, I have learned a lot of stuff, some useful, and some not. Here are 20 of the things I have learned.
Yesterday and today have been quite surreal for me, and perhaps for many others as well. You may know about the attacks on Westminster Bridge on Wednesday, and that several students from my university, some of them being my peers and friends, were involved in the attack. A friend of mine actually is in a hospital right now getting fixed up by the doctors.
So I am from the Liverpool area, and as you probably will know, travelling to and from Liverpool is a bit of a hassle right now. For those not aware, the line between Liverpool Lime Street Station, Manchester, Wigan, and Warrington is closed, due to a lot of Victorian era wall falling on the track between Edge Hill and Lime Street. This has caused a lot of trouble.
