My 5 year financial plan

My 5 year financial plan

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about where I want to be in 5 years time. In 5 years, I’ll be 30, so I need to set some goals now and make sure I hit them by the time I get there.

Why FFXII is better than FFXV

Why FFXII is better than FFXV

When I was younger I was massively into Final Fantasy games. I was seven years old and my parents didn’t really let me go out to play because we lived in London and there were bad people everywhere, so Final Fantasy was a good escape.

But it has been 10 years since FFXV was first announced and, after falling out of love with Final Fantasy after playing FFXIII (which, let’s face it, was shockingly bad) I never really thought I’d play again.

But I recently played the demo for FFXV at my boyfriend’s house and I fucking LOVED it. So I got FFXV the day it came out, and I loved that too. But then, I started to notice that it wasn’t getting better as the game went on.

It was getting worse.

The worst holiday of my life

The worst holiday of my life

Okay so last month I had the worst holiday of my life. Literally. But we all know how it goes with holidays, as soon as you get back, people want to know how it went. What happened? Did you have a good time? Was the weather nice?

Well ‘lots, yes, nice’ is the contracted form of that answer. But the long answer, ho ho ho. The long answer is so much more.

So I’m documenting the long answer here, so that if someone asks me how my holiday went, I’ll email them a copy of this blog post and then hear them openly weep and console me.

Yes, it was that bad.
