Procrastination and me

Procrastination and me

It’s amazing how fast a week can fly by when a deadline is approaching.

This time last week I was sat down, pens neatly arranged in a line, my books piled in ascending order based on the number of pages in them, my emails were up to date and most importantly I had moved all the coins in my savings into piles based on denomination. Read the rest of this entry »

Child development – its essay time

Child development – its essay time

The majority of my blog posts so far seem to be a made up of a mix of apologetic excuses or bouts of frustration. Well, you’ll be pleased to know that this one is no different.

February 4th was the start date for my latest OU course – child development – which is not one that I have been looking forward to. Not because it’s not that interesting, but more that I have very little interest in children. But, the more I read, the more I realise that I don’t have to. Read the rest of this entry »

Back.. but not quite with any degree of vengeance

The more astute amongst you may have noticed that this blog hasn’t been updated for a while. It seems every blog post I write starts with an apology for leaving it so long. Well, from the last time we spoke, everything hasn’t quite gone to plan. Read the rest of this entry »

Not just because I’m really busy at the moment, but now I have switched from reading for fun to more academic books, I’m currenlty reading Critical thinking skills , the going is a little slower to say the least.

My first visit to @Manchestersalon…..painless

My first visit to @Manchestersalon…..painless

On Wednesday night (28th September) I went along to The Manchester Salon (in association with Cafe Scientifique), a public discussion forum at The International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester.

I have to admit to feeling a little nervous on the way there, this was to be my first discussion/debating experience since starting my degree. My radio background has meant I have had to interview those in positions of responsibility, and I have never shied away from asking difficult questions and tackling issues head on.

Well I’m convinced – Sex at Dawn by @ChrisRyanPhD and C Jetha

Well I’m convinced – Sex at Dawn by @ChrisRyanPhD and C Jetha

It’s been a long time since I have had a book which I couldn’t put down. Guess what, I found one.

Sex at Dawn by Chris Ryan and Cacilda Jetha is one of the most fascinating and thought-provoking books I have ever come across. The “headline” on the front cover states that this book will tell you “how we mate, why we stray, and what it means for modern relationships”.

Let’s start with why I actually purchased this book. Read the rest of this entry »
