A reflection of the journey so far

It’s never easy to look back on something you’ve done, something you’re quite proud of, and criticize it; but that’s exactly what I’m about to do – criticize my blog! When first starting up my blog, I was absolutely lost and I had no idea how or where to start. When I began blogging, I…

You’re Too Young

Many have us have experienced the “you’re too young” lecture whilst being pushed to the side when we were trying to purchase a cinema ticket; a ticket for a beautifully directed, horrifyingly gruesome film – or even a film with a sexual scenes. While it drives us mental and makes us furious, maybe it’s for the…

Can I Please Have Your Attention?

It has recently come to my attention that everyone in my household over 18 years-old are glued to their devices. Whether we’re watching a film, sitting down for a meal, or going out somewhere together – they are always staring at their devices. I decided to put together a little test to see just how…

Mobile Devices in Public Spaces

Every day I come across people using their mobile phones in public places. It’s also very often that I see parents setting up iPads for their children to watch to stay occupied.

Television Memories: Reflection

When scrolling through other student’s blog posts which reflected on their parents, siblings, relatives, and older friends’ television memories, I had noticed a few similar themes with my television reflection post. A few of these similarities included: Television not being switched on whilst eating. Television being somewhat of a treat. Children playing outside more so…

Memories of Better Television

Throwback to the days of The Jetsons, The Flinstones, and Tom & Jerry. My mum, Jodie, is filled with such joy and excitement as she reminisces about her childhood television experiences. Every morning before school, her and her older sister would watch Mr. Squiggle and Gumby. It was the memory of the television show Gumby…

Being In A Media Space

We’re now in the year of 2017, where everything revolves around media. It was once considered mainstream to not have a form of media, but now, now you’re as rare as a four-leaf clover if you don’t have a social media application. It was my interest for media that drove me to pursue a double…
