From hospital bed… … to being cast free.
Back when I had two working feet, a borrowed camera, and a very naughty credit card limit, I set off around Europe on an unplanned birthday trip for a few weeks. I hiked, I ran, I panicked, I hid behind a video camera. I felt free and I loved every second of it. 🙃🌿☀
“And you’ve already lost all side mobility in that ankle. That’s gone.”
Laying in a hospital bed, high on morphine, I stared at a surgeon who was explaining to me in no uncertain terms that I had FUCKED UP.
Hiii hi hi cuties! I finally managed to get around to posting my first mini travelogue – a little snippet of my days in Barcelona.
Shot just on my phone and edited with iMovie on various European public transport, it’s not the greatest quality! But, you’re just gonna have to wait for the really good stuff until I get home and really get editing the beautiful camera footage I’ve got ^.^
Touchdown last Saturday. I arrived at my Barcelona hostel at 8pm, ready for an early night. But no. No no no. The hotel served up a free (vegan!!!!!!) meal, I got chatting to some cute Americans and a lovely guy from worked at the hostel. The next thing I know we’ve been to one of Barcelona’s many coffee shops (like Amsterdam, but sneaky) and we’re on out way to a free reggae ‘festival’ up, up, and up.
I brought Conor (Boyfriend/ Cameraman/ Cutie) on for this installment as I love talking politics with him – you’ll find us talking about Brexit, what we look for in a leader, and who we’ll be voting for (spoiler alert: it’s Labour).
U.K. folks: please vote! And please vote compassionately.
let the hounds loose
’round Westminster’s corridors
So they can feel the horror, sure
they’d change their minds quick,
Once they realised how sick
It truly is.
In case you didn’t get it from the title, and from my facebook, and instagram, and twitter, aaaaaand me yelling on my rooftop… I started a Vlog! Whaaaaaaaat. Helped (a loooot) by my darling cameraman, Conor, my first video has been shot, edited, and released! Woohoo!
If you didn’t already know, the Tories are planning on repealing the 2005 Hunting Act . In a society plagued with issues from homelessness to our current healthcare crisis, the fact that re-legalising Fox Hunting is even being considered in the current climate tells us a lot about the priorities of a Conservative government.
We’ve been lead into a political world that’s on its way to becoming a two-party system; we feel obligated to vote for one party because they provide the strongest opposition to the terrifying second party. Rather than a more sensible proportionate representation system, UK voters are instead thrown into an all or nothing situation and are faced with this unnecessary voting pressure.
So, whilst I believe that having a decent Green presence in Parliament would only be a good thing, the risk is that they would just be a smatter, drowned out by a Conservative majority. And that is just too great a risk.
