Spreading The Love

This world is a little too full of mis-directed hate for my liking, and to combat that I'm going to direct some love around t'internet! 

I don't know why we as humans, love to hate others. It's stupid and it doesn't achieve anything. Girls love to hate other girls for the most idiotic of reasons, and as far as I can tell, guys just direct their anger and hate at random objects and make feeble excuses to defend the action. 

So, for your (and my) enjoyment, here are five random things I love. 

1. Books

If I have a book in my bag/hand/general possession, I'm a happy bunny. In fact, my bookshelf doesn't contain at least half of my collection! 

Currently I'm still singing the praises of the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth. If you guys want, I'll post a full review of the whole trilogy, or book by book if you guys want. I'm also loving Game of Thrones, having got nearly all the books, but I'm only halfway through the first one! 

Other books I would recommend to anyone are The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach, Soulmates by Holly Bourne, and 11 Doctors, 11 Stories (It's a Doctor Who anthology, I wont be offended if it doesn't tickle your fancy!!)

2. Random Acts of Kindness

Last Wednesday (New Years Day) night, Chris and I decided to go to the cinema and see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and it was supposed to be my treat, until Chris order the tickets and had his debit card in the chip and pin point before I could take my bag off my shoulder. 

He randomly treated me to the cinema and I thought it was so nice of him. Thanks, baby!

3. Gingers

Safe to say, that if you are a ginger/have any ginger in you (men with ginger beards count) then I'm immediately going to refer to you as "one of my people"; Welcome to the fold, my fellow ginger-nut!

I love being a red-head and being 2% of the world, I'm hugely proud to be a minority. 

Some of my favorite gingers are: 

  • My oldest friend Anna
  • The ever lovely and well-manicured Audrey of The Nail Affair
  • Tim Minchin
  • Karen Gillan (Amy Pond from Doctor Who)
  • Rupert Grint (If you don't know who he is then... hmmph!!)

4. "A" Theories

I am a huge Pretty Little Liars fan and was absolutely gutted by the -A reveal in episode 13. I'm a bit addicted to searching for A Theories on pretty much all of my social media platforms, and now I'm beginning to think that it couldn't be anyone else. No spoilers, though! I'm dying for the newest episode, too. Two more days!! 


5. Friendly Starbucks Baristas (or Costa, or Insomnia)

On my walk to college of a dreary morning, I have a Starbucks along the way. Every time I pop in, the Baristas are cracking jokes (often before 7.30) and brightening up the mornings of the tired morning commuters. 

I love going in because I know once I step into the warm, comfy surroundings, there will be someone glad to see me and make my morning that bit happier. 

You just don't get that in McDonalds.

There are way more things I love in the world, and if you want, I'll make this a monthly thing. Let me know. 
Spread the love, guys.
