The Best Of My Digital Year!

A friend of mine recently posted on his blog all the best bits he’d managed to screenshot in his year of gaming, and it really was a pleasure to see what he had gotten up to in his digital life. Unfortunately, I’d not planned ahead, and as a result haven’t taken any amazing staged shots in game, but some of the trophy moments made me smile so I thought I’d share a couple as 2017 has been my personal best year in gaming in a few years. I hope you enjoy, and here’s to 2018!

Sebastian and I sharing a moment in Stardew valley. You’re damn right I married the emo boy.

Enjoying playing as Freddy in Dead By Daylight. My favourite multiplayer of the year!

Saving the Universe in Destiny 2. Standard.

Enjoying the nostalgia hype in both Crash Bandicoot and Sonic Mania!

The Yakuza series quickly became one of my all time favourites this year. Here’s my two top boys I enjoyed playing as the most this year.

Uncharted Lost Legacy was a dream to play. Excited for a new direction with the Uncharted series.

[Honourable mention to Persona 5 and Resident Evil 7, two games I unfortunately lack the screenshots for!]

Solo Yolo Episode 3: Naples – Rome

Better late than never, eh?! It’s been over a year since I did this trip, looking back on all this footage while editing I remember how mind blowing Rome was. Definitely one of those must see places, and I would love to go back out of season when there are less tourists, and it’s a little cooler.

Also, this entire video was edited on my iPad Pro, while it’s not perfect, I’m super surprised at how quick and easy it was. Expect more videos edited this way!

July 2017

So July in general was pretty slow. I barely worked, so I had nothing to fill up my days, and now in August I have no money as a result. I'm not complaining though, I had lots of time to myself to draw, play video games and watch Anime, so swings and roundabouts! In my virtual life, I completed that super hard level on Crash Bandicoot, the DLC level they gave for free. I think it took me just under two hours, which I don't think was too bad! I'm also super close to prestige on Dead By Daylight, which I'm sure I'll hit during the summer event this weekend.

Here's a picture I drew! 僕のヒーローアカデミア is my fave right now, can't stop won't stop!

However, at the start to July I went to Didsbury car show for a little picnic and a hang with my darling boyfriend Andrew, it was a lovely day we spent together. Here's some cool cars I papped.

A real cool thing that happened to me though was I won an Instagram tattoo competition which was awesome! I got this cool little backpack done by a fabulous Stockport based artist called @luciantattoos on Insta, go check him out and give him a follow because he really is great!

Real talk though, I'm actually in love with this tattoo! 😍

And that's about it from me, here's a picture of some delicious homemade ramen I made at some point throughout July!

PS, I bought an iPad Pro, expect loads of Procrate pics and stuff 😁

Thank you.

I didn’t have the internet or cable TV when I was a teenager. Instead I used to go out and buy CDs from bands that were in the liner notes of other bands CDs, lock myself in my room, and play guitar along with the music blasting, much to my mothers and neighbours dismay. I spent most of my teenage years alone in my room with my guitars and CDs, Meteora was one of them, and without it I wouldn’t have done half of the things I’ve done with music because it was one of the albums that taught me how to play the guitar. For that, I will be forever in your debt.

Linkin Park were also one of the first bands that taught me to turn it up loud to drown it all out, something that at 26 I still do almost daily. The anger conveyed in the words you sang helped me deal with a lot of anger I had, and to some extent still do. So thank you, for everything.

I Passed!

Sorry this is coming to you a little late, I’m a very lazy human these days and I forget things pretty easily. Anyway, here’s my June roundup!

So, yep, I passed my first year of University. Getting the news was a massive relief as I had spent the best part of 2 months stressing about the outcome. That was pretty much the major bit of news for that month, and other than that i didn’t do much else.


Here’s Andrew, Scott, Kate, Elisa and myself celebrating my good news.


Also, a good friend of mine, Laura, turned 22 and she had a little shin dig. Here’s a photo from that get together.


Anyway, my mind is now at ease for at least a couple of months. I’m stress free and enjoying the summer, I hope you’re doing much of the same.

Morning! Voting today?..

Here’s Emmas quick quips for you to politically ponder even though you most definitely didn’t ask for them:
1. Democracy doesn’t work. Don’t ask me what does, I have no idea. All I know is that 30 old bids that live in the middle of nowhere having the same say as the entire population of Manchester is neither fair nor equal.

2. Voting Gandalf/Obi-Wan Kenobi/Dumbledore/[insert relatable character here] as PM is not going to save the galaxy as many have come to believe. Unfortunately this isn’t a Tolkien novel, it’s real life. With that said however I’m sure we’d all much rather give Corby a go at the job than suffer 4 more years of absolute May hell while she continues to supply arms to the Middle East, take police off the streets, privatise the NHS and make schools exclusively for the kids with wealthy parents, among many, many other horrendous things…

3. NEVER trust a Tory. Stating the obvious I know but some things just need repeating.
Have a great day. And remember, if May does win, at least Orange Is The New Black season 5 goes up on Netflix tomorrow so that can distract us momentarily from the impending doom we all face.

The month of May.

こんにちは!I used to do these monthly round up things where I would tell you how how I’ve been, what I’ve been up too, and post a few pictures. For whatever reason I stopped doing them and I have no idea why, so here I am giving it a whirl for May 2017.
This month I finished Universtity, which is a weight off my mind, but now I’m regularly wondering round wondering what to do with myself. I had a Lingusitcs exam and and an English exam this month. Don’t get my results ’till the end of June, I’m so stressed.

I took up skateboarding again this month and that’s been fun. It’s really rainy at the moment so I haven’t been out in a minute but hey ho, the weather will clear up eventually.


Took and impromtue trip to Dovestones Resovoir the other weekend. Walked around and had a little adventure.


Also went to London for a friends birthday. We went to a pop up bar that was an old WW2 bunker and we had to decode all these mysteries in order to get our custom cocktails. It was a bit different and loads of fun! Here’s a picture of parliament.

I guess I had quite an eventful month in hindsight. Anyway what did you get up to? Tweet me or something and let me know. 

Love and posi vibes everyone 🤙✌️❤️

Midwestern States by The Menzingers Cover

Waddup! Did a little cover this afternoon and i think it turned out pretty well. Give it whirl if you’re into that kinda thing.
