BOOKS: TRAVELLING TO INFINITY: MY LIFE WITH STEPHEN



I have definitely become obsessed with the film 'The Theory of Everything'. I've been obsessed with it since the beginning of this year when it first came out, I saw one of the first showings of it.

For those who haven't seen it, it follows the relationship of Stephen and Jane Hawking, the great theoretical physicist and the girl who eventually became his wife. Told from her perspective, you get to see a personal side to him, what it was like to be married to him, and life after their marriage.

The film is beautifully filmed, romantic and inspiring and once I heard that it was inspired by Jane's book on her life with Stephen, I had to buy it.

I'm only three chapters in right now, but her writing is gripping, descriptive and emotive. I sat engrossed in it, in the corner of the pub waiting for my dinner whilst the boys enjoyed the football. I can't wait to finish it and see the comparisons with the film.

If you want to read it yourself it can be found here.

I think when I finish it, I will add more books related to Stephen Hawking, possibly his own, to my list.

What film adaptations of books have you found intriguing?

ACTIVISM: THE WHITE RIBBON DAY CAMPAIGN

Around the world a staggering 1 in 3 women has experienced violence.  I chose this topic today as one of my posts as it is incredibly close to my heart. To me, it is something that is of the utmost importance to end. Seeing the worlds monuments light up in support of this cause shows us how much support is out there, and how much can be done!

ACTIVISM: THE PORTRAYAL OF WOMEN


Years ago the media was completely controlled by corporate entities and women fell into one of two categories: the housewife image or the glamorous sex object.

Now in the digital age, we have social media as well as the mainstream media.

Media is now accessible by almost everyone and how it is being used around the world is slowly changing.

Especially in the portrayal of women.

ACTIVISM: S.O.S. CALL FROM THE BEES



“If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live.” 


In the past few years I have become really concerned about the environment. Being at University I've met other like minded individuals and when I moved out on my own I wanted to try and help. At the moment I have limited ways to help as I don't have the ability to create a proper garden in my student house, but I have already seen small changes caused by our little garden!

Saying Goodbye


I have been gone from blogging for a couple of weeks as university deadlines have completely taken over my life. But sadly, a couple of weeks ago, I also lost my beloved little Pammy.
