Graduation cards – 4 variations

Let a girl dream and she will make graduation greeting cards, because she herself has not had a graduation ceremony yet. I graduated with a First Class degree in Geography last year, July 2021, from the University of Edinburgh. Because I’ve been in Edinburgh for just over a month now, and I happened to beContinue reading “Graduation cards – 4 variations”

The case of Hillfort House [Brighton]

With this post, I introduce a new post category to my blog: housing! It started with the ad [picture 1] I check my email and see this ad at the top of my inbox. (Thanks, Gmail). It’s adorable – nice colours, fancy font, and a catchy heading – “Up to 6 weeks’ rent on us”.Continue reading “The case of Hillfort House [Brighton]”

[Torun, PL] Pavilions on Philadelphia Boulevard

This is a rushed article so not edited; bear with me though, it expresses most of what I needed to say. Lately, meaning especially in late June when construction started, an important topic in the local news in my hometown, Torun (a 200,000-resident city in northern Poland, located along the main river in the country,Continue reading “[Torun, PL] Pavilions on Philadelphia Boulevard”

My London

NB to start with: I don’t live and have never lived in London. ‘My London’ is the idea of London as it exists in my mind – the prevalent idea that allows me to like and not hate it – and the parts of London that I like to visit in London, the parts ofContinue reading “My London”

Storytelling through houses in The Sims 2 – Pleasantview (part 1)

It’s no surprise that settings can be, and often are, important parts of a story told through a movie/book/show/whatever other fictional form. But so far, video games (or computer games, or digital games) have not been classified as fictional forms until very recently, and their status as ‘fictional forms’ has been neglected and even rejected.Continue reading “Storytelling through houses in The Sims 2 – Pleasantview (part 1)”

Park Close flats, Coldean – redevelopment proposal

Two years ago, a proposal was made to replace the old Meeting House at Park Close, Coldean – a ‘garden suburb’ of Brighton – with a new development of 12 flats. The Meeting House was built in the 1950s and used by the Mormon community (i.e. the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), butContinue reading “Park Close flats, Coldean – redevelopment proposal”

Writing from the basement

I often write posts on here from a basement. It’s a basement at Pavilion Parade, Brighton, because it’s a place where you can sit down and it’s pleasant and isn’t a beach so you can use a laptop. The other place where you can sit down and it’s nice is the beach, but it’s notContinue reading “Writing from the basement”
