Are you a serial hobbyist?

Are you a serial hobbyist?

Over my lifetime, I’ve had a fair share of wide ranging (and sometimes unusual) hobbies, the only two of which I’ve ever really stuck with being reading and writing. I don’t know what it is about me, but I have a tendency to suddenly become super excited about a random new hobby, and then drop it just as quickly when… Read more »

Life Lately #3

Life Lately #3

  Life: It seems like so long since I’ve done one of these posts! Probably because whilst things have been pretty hectic recently, it hasn’t been for any particularly interesting reason. Work has just been crazy due to us being super understaffed, and I’ve been busy trying to sort out moving in with my boyfriend. Whilst it’ll be lovely when… Read more »

Life Lately #2

Life Lately #2

Life: I’m back with another life update! Hooray! I guess the main news these last couple of weeks is that I joined the gym, and whilst that may not seem like big news to people who don’t know me in real life, it’s actually pretty crazy! Although I like nice countryside walks and things like that (basically, Pokemon Go-ing!), in… Read more »

Are readers born or made?

Are readers born or made?

Back in college I studied Psychology as one of my A Levels, and one of the aspects I found most interesting was the idea of nature vs. nurture. I think it’s fascinating to think about whether the aspects of your personality are inset within you at birth, or whether you acquire them as a result of your upbringing and life experiences, and I’ve… Read more »

A Trip Up Mount Snowdon

A Trip Up Mount Snowdon

First things first: apologies for the simply AWFUL photograph of me above! Anyone who read my Life Lately post a couple of weeks ago will know that my friend and I were going to do a charity walk up Mount Snowdon, and let’s just say we had to battle the elements to do it, hence my bedraggled state! And thanks… Read more »

Life Lately #1

Life Lately #1

Lots of bloggers seem to do weekly or monthly updates on life, blogging and reading (I know the Sunday Post is a popular one), and as an incredibly nosey person, I always enjoy reading them! I kind of wanted to start doing some kind of update post myself just to share what I’m currently reading, and what I’m currently up… Read more »

Bookish Fashion

Bookish Fashion

Back when I was in high school, I was a pretty wild dresser. Emo fashion was in its heyday and I was a big fan, so I would commonly be seen sporting shredded jeans and stripey tights, not to mention band t shirts and brightly coloured ties (yes, I apparently thought I was Avril Lavigne). I don’t know what happened… Read more »

It’s my second Blogiversary!

It’s my second Blogiversary!

I can’t believe it! Another year has gone by, and Boats Against The Current turns two today! When I started out blogging I was kind of doubtful as to whether or not I’d actually manage to stick with it (I’m a bit of a serial hobbyist!), so I’m pretty pleased that two years later I’m still going. I started this… Read more »
