For ages I deliberated offering to run a game of D&D for my friends. I felt like there was no way I’d be able to do it, no way to cover all the bases. I was doomed to fail. Little did I know it’s now easier than ever to run a game!

This secret confidence not only comes from just running a game (and having a great time doing so) but from the wealth of content I’d watched beforehand online.

*TRIGGER WARNING* If you are of a nervous disposition and cannot stand to listen to any more talk of Brexit or Donald Trump. This blog post is NOT for you*

Welcome back! I hope you’ve had a great break, and are excited for the year ahead!! What better way to start the new year than talk about 2 of the most popular topics of conversation: Brexit and Donald Trump. If you thought you had seen the back of these, you were most certainly wrong.  Let’s start 2019 as we mean to go on, as it doesn’t look like either of these things are going anywhere, for the near future at least.

Before we continue, ask yourself this. Has social media influenced your voting behaviour? Has it changed your opinion of a politician?

It’s the start of the new year. Christmas has long been forgotten. Hence decorations have been taken down. While new years hangovers are wearing off, which can only mean one thing. The January transfer window is up and active. And thus transfer announcements are about to be in full force. So what better time to look at the worst transfer announcement videos of the Premier league.

Should all makeup brands be cruelty free?

Whether drugstore or high end, the makeup industry is booming these days. And while there are so many choices of foundations, concealers, eyeshadow palettes, lip products and so on, people tend to have their preferences regarding brands and products.

And while a lot of the products out there achieve great results on our skin, the price to pay is often a high one. We might not be aware of it though, because others pay it for us. Yearly, a minimum number of 115 million animals worldwide are used for animal testing purposes. And it doesn’t look like it is about to change. 

My initial thought, no. eSports will never be a replacement or anywhere even close to the thrill of real-life sports. I refuse to believe that gaming sports can ever overtake any athletic sporting activity. But should I be giving them a chance? Recently eSports have been gaining a meteoric rise in attention. So is it time to stop knocking them and start taking them more seriously? The English Premier league is giving eSports a chance. Maybe we can too.
