Things From The Week

I realise I actually seem to have accidentally created a few new features to help bulk out Blog Every Day In May, maybe some of these will stick around into June and beyond!

This week has been quite an interesting one, what with the general election and the start of Blog Every Day In May! Here are some things I’ve collected up to share from the week.
Music: Smoke + Mirrors by Imagine Dragons
I first heard of Imagine Dragons when their song, It’s Time, was featured on the trailer for The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. That was roughly around the same time the song featured on Glee so I think that’s roughly when they came to prominence. I loved their first album and I remember having to import it through Amazon because it wasn’t yet available here! I ended up lending that album to three different people (cheapskates, right?) because it was so fantastic. Smoke + Mirrors came out in February and I spent ages listening to it at the time. Since then, though, I’ve not really listened to it all that much. So this week I thought I’d give it a spin and I’m reminded how much I love this band. My 3 favourite songs from Smoke + Mirrors are: the title track, Smoke + Mirrors, Gold, and Polaroid.
Rock The Vote

On Thursday when people asked me whether or not I voted I just sort of gave them a smug withering look and said, “please.” As I’ve mentioned I have been invested in politics since as far back as I can remember. And I can remember quite far back. I thrive off of all things governmental and political, and elections are such a buzz. I’ve often said to my mum throughout my life that I should probably go and stand to be the prime minister, or at least to become an MP. I would be a fair and reasonable leader. I wouldn’t call for anybody’s heads to be removed. Nope.

Pizza and Ice Cream
 After a few stressful weeks and a bit of a stressful day, myself and a friend from work (hi, Kirsty!) decided to head out to Frankie & Benny’s on Saturday evening. I got an Americano pizza and a mango sorbet for dessert. I also got a surprise when I find out one of my good friends from school (hi Jade!) works there now! It’s so nice when you bump into people in places you wouldn’t expect to see them!
Look At This Graph
It’s the video that’s been sweeping the internet by storm. So Nickelback are the butt of a lot of jokes, and this is another one, but it’s on a different level.
Photograph is one of their most famous songs, I reckon, and some really clever and funny person with some top class editing skills has turned it into something 10 times more hilarious. Give it a watch, and enjoy!

  1. Loving your 'blog every day in May' posts! I don't know if I would be able to find the ideas. Luckily this week I've been able to find a few great ideas for future posts so hopefully that will keep me busy. Glad you had a good week. I haven't been to Frankie & Benny's in ages but right now I am totally craving their pizzas – the mango sorbet sounds delish also! Hope you have a great rest of the week 🙂
