Hello again old friend…

They say most blogs won’t last a year. I guess this is true in the case of my beloved ‘Random Rants’ as I kept wanting to write a new post, but it got more and more spasmodic until I just didn’t post anything at all. It’s not that I didn’t want to, nor that I didn’t have any ideas. They just weren’t great enough to pull me away from the uni work that I’m forever drowning in. Yesterday, it was one month exactly until I’m finished my uni degree (yay!). As such, I’d like to try to get back into this blogging thing again, because I thoroughly enjoyed it (while it lasted). There’s something about being able to write about whatever you’d like without knowing who is going to read it. I’d like to be able to do that. Basically, this is just a short post to apologise for my absence, and to let any of my few remaining followers know that I’m back, hopefully for good this time.

On a final note, please help me increase my chances of winning a life size TARDIS by clicking here.

Until next time,

Confessions of a Bookaholic.

I’ve loved reading ever since I can remember, but unfortunately I don’t read as much as I would like to these days, unless its the type of book that you just can’t put down. I come across these books more often than you’d think, but most of the time even though the book is still really good I end up spending my time doing other pointless activities like watching TV (at the moment all I’ve been watching is Pretty Little Liars) or wasting time on the computer (its amazing how much time can pass when you’re not even really doing anything). 

Therefore, to try and get back into reading a bit more I’ve decided I’m going to undertake the Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge (all explanation necessary is in the link).  At the moment I’m thinking I will aim for at least Lorelei level because that seems possible, but depending on how long it takes me I might even aspire to the Rory level. Obviously this challenge is a couple years old so I will be changing it up a little bit to suit myself and make from March 2013 – March 2014. I intend to begin after I have finished the final book of my favourite trilogy (The Delirium Trilogy) which comes out on my birthday (March 5). I believe this will be a fun activity and I am mainly doing it to broaden my horizen so to speak. I have a tendency to only read one genre of books so I’m hoping this will not only enable me to learn to enjoy reading different genres (especially classics) but also encourage me to begin reading a lot more. If you think this is something you’d be interested in doing let me know and hopefuly we can discuss some of the books we’ve read. 

On the topic of my favourite books I’m going to create a little challenge/list of books that I highly recommend everyone should read as they are books that I just could not put down. I don’t know how long this will take me but I will start it today. It will be a mixture of trilogy’s and individual books but I really love to share books that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed myself with other people (like I do with my sister all the time) so it would actually mean a lot to me if you could take to time to read my list of my favourite books (when I have compiled it and posted it) and at least consider reading even a few of them. Just try to ignore how bad my description of each book will be 😛

Until next time,

When a good man goes to war.

Demons run when a good man goes to war.
Night will fall and drown the sun
when a good man goes to war.
Friendship dies and true love lies
Night will fall and the dark will rise
when a good man goes to war.
Demons run but count the cost
the battle’s won but the child is lost.

River Song- Doctor Who

Only the Best 21st Birthday idea ever.

I’m back my pretties, with a very exciting topic if I say so myself.

Although I’m only turning twenty this year I’ve started thinking about what I want to do for my twenty-first birthday, and last night when I was talking to my mum it hit me. For anyone who knows me they’ll just roll their eyes when I tell them my idea. Let’s just say its only my favourite show EVER. Pause for the drum roll please… DOCTOR WHO! 😀 😀

Because pictures make every post better.

If you’re wondering why everyone would roll their eyes, well lets just say that some people think I’m a bit ‘over-eager’ when it comes to Doctor Who…. It’s not like I have a massive collection of Dr Who or anything……

I only have: Four sonic screwdrivers (one is an actual screwdriver, one is a pen, one is a light, and one makes cool sounds), 3 Doctor Who Shirts (1 is vintage), 3 Tardis mugs (one is for display only), A Dalek toy (present from my boss), A Tardis key chain, David Tennant key chain, 1 plush adipose toy, and only every season since Christopher Eccleston….

I can’t help it. I just love Doctor Who so much.

Anyway, back to the original topic.

So I am going to have a Doctor Who theme for my 21st. Obviously, guests can be whatever they want as long as its Doctor related (e.g. a Dalek or The Doctor) but I don’t think I’ll be too happy if everyone wants to come as The Doctor. As for myself, I’m thinking of being either Rose or Amy as they are my two favourite companions (Although it might be Clara by then, I quite like her from the Christmas Special). And of course nobody else will be allowed to be who I chose to dress up as seeing as it will be MY birthday 😉

Rose Tyler

Clara Oswin.I'm thinking this might be the best choice for me as I have naturally brown hair.

My sister’s friend is really talented at baking cakes so she’s going to make a Tardis cake for me. I haven’t actually told her that’s what I want yet, but she’s already said she’ll make my cake for me. I’m thinking it will look something like this.

I want to have a little David Tennant figurine next to it as well though.

That’s all for now, I’ll make sure to keep you updated with anymore ideas I come up with.

Eek, I’m so unbelievably excited!!!!!

So there are pictures of me from other posts. I’m interested in knowing who you think I should go as. Or just who your favourite Doctor Who companion is out of Rose, Amy and Clara.
