Anonymous asked: Your analysis of blake blog is absolutely amazing, thank you so so much for making it! Are you with WJEC for lit? I'm A2 this year and yeah, u tha best

These messages are making me feel so happy, I’m glad you appreciate it! Do you mean the exam board? We’re with OCR, in the exam we’re writing about Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience + The White Devil and then King Lear also. Good luck with your revision!

Anonymous asked: I think it's so lovely of you to post some of your A Level analysis. I'm aware that someone could possibly plagiarize your work, however, a lot of the time, teachers literally give you information to regurgitate in an exam, so surely that's plagiarism too, in a sense? It's also difficult to revise from things written by critics who don't write things specifically for A Level purposes so something written by another student is always super helpful!! So thank you so much xxx

Thank YOU so much, hearing this means a lot to me because I really am trying to help :-)


Patrick Leblanc’s vertical gardens are so lovely I could cry

Anonymous asked: You do realize that by posting your A level work on tumblr you're practically crying for someone to plagiarize it for their own academic purposes

If someone copies and pastes my analysis then that’s not my problem at all, I published it to share it with other students who need help interpreting the poems and typing out the analysis’s helps ME massively in remembering the points/quotes. They’re hardly original essays or anything, it’s just picking through a piece of literature that’s been discussed thousands of times before, it’s just translating what’s already on the paper. It’s not anything I’ll be submitting to school, it’s just revision, I posted it in order to help people/give people ideas, but (and I know this sounds cheesy) if someone does directly plagiarize it then they’re only cheating themselves. Jeez I swear people criticise literally everything I post on this website :( 

Another analysis for my A level English lit blog, I don’t know if anyone ever even reads this but I love the idea of maybe being able to help someone who is stuck on revising Blake. More to come soon hopefully!


I met a nice cat on the way home

Anonymous asked: I'm an artist only beginning to get serious about it as a career and I was wondering how you would rate your experience of website sales sites like society6?

I would rate my experience very highly indeed, especially society6. I’ve had an account on there since August 2012 and I’ve made this much so far:

Which is pretty good considering all you have to do is upload the image! When I first got started I wasn’t selling very much but now I make £50-80 a month which is really helpful. I’ve also got a redbubble account but I haven’t been on there as long. I definitely recommend it, you just have to endlessly (and shamelessly) self-promote to get noticed and spread the word :-)

Women’s grueling, lifelong, losing battle to transform themselves into magical, flawless creatures with Disney hair and 15-inch waists and massive ham-lips is not for the benefit of women. And when men say that they “love to see the woman underneath the makeup,” they’re not saying they want to see your leg stubble and greasy bangs—they’re saying they want you to be better at hiding your maintenance routine. Because the maintenance spoils the fantasy.
