Trick or Treat???

Trick or treat. Trick or treat. Trick or Trick! Ah, didn’t we all love Halloween as kids eh (and I expect many of you still do now)! Dressed up in a scary outfit while running about with friends, banging on doors in hope for sweets. Hoping that you will spook the hell out of everyoneContinue reading “Trick or Treat???”

Are the Teenage Years really the Best Years of your life?

“You are the Dancing Queen, feel the beat of the tambourine, Dancing Queen, young and sweet- Only Seventeen Oh ohhh”
Strutting down the streets on a Friday and Saturday night, with your group of thirty friends, to arrive at either at one of your local nightclubs (probably with a fake ID) or in more recent cases at a pub. Only to get smashed off your faces, to meet new amazing people and of course to have a wonderful time. Then once the weekend is over, you are back at college again, hanging about in the common room. You suddenly realise there is yet another test which you haven’t revised for, however you manage to somehow effortlessly pick up your pen and produce yet another essay worthy of an A. You head to netball practice later on in the evening, where of course you compete on a regional basis in the team you also spend your weekend nights out with! Then at the end of the day when you finally get a bit of time to yourself, you automatically open your Instagram account, which has at least 3000 followers, to check up on everybody else…

Well according to BMI standards this is the case. But most people realise that there are going to be people who have a higher amount of bone or muscle mass compared to others of their size, and we know that BMI doesn’t account for this. Yet did you also know that mortality rates are much lower in both genders with a higher BMI?

What the Cluck

What the Cluck? What could this all be about? Maybe an independent butcher who works for Tesco, my growing excitement which arose when KFC reopened, or some spontaneous trip to a farm where I came across a load of chickens. Wrong! Though ironically all three of these points are indirectly relevant to this. But insteadContinue reading “What the Cluck”

AND LET THE BATTLE OF THE YEAR COMMENCE: Cyclists vs walkers…

Long gone are the days where the promenade along my local seafront was the place to take a nice, peaceful, gratifying stroll down by the beach, on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Contory it is increasingly turning into a battle ground, hosting the fight between bikers and pedestrians. As you can guess, the former always wins.Continue reading “AND LET THE BATTLE OF THE YEAR COMMENCE: Cyclists vs walkers…”
