I like to keep up with what is going on in the world. I read or watch the news daily, and whilst I might not be able to talk in depth about all topics (far from it), I do pride myself on having basic knowledge on the important stuff. It's not just the 'regular' news… Continue reading Guilty pleasure ‘news stories’

I'm 29. My birthday was at the end of February so yes, I am well into my final year of my twenties and fast approaching my thirtieth birthday.
