Right off the bat, I want to say that this post is written based on my experiences at a university in England. While education can work differently depending on the university and where in the world it is, these points should be broad enough that you can hopefully apply them to your situation in some way, shape, or form. This also isn't the end-all or be-all of lists, but these are certain things that helped me in making my own decisions when it came to what degree I wanted to get.
I don't often talk about fanfiction and if I ever do, it's usually with people I know already engage with it themselves, or have at least done so in the past. I often see a lot of opinions floating around in regards to it. Some in support, others not so much.
Not too long ago, we got the fantastic news that Netflix's Sex Education was being renewed for a second season. According to the Netflix UK twitter account, there's no official release date but production will begin in Spring in Wales. It looks like it's going to be a little while before we see any new content, but there's definitely a lot that I'm looking forward.
I'm going to be perfectly honest and say the main reason I decided to try out Sex Education is because Gillian Anderson is in it, and I highly doubt I'm alone in this. That being said, I ended up loving it for so much more than that, and it's those reasons that I want to talk about.
This list was a slightly different experience for me because I was watching two of the Twelfth Doctor's seasons for the first time whereas all the other season before now were re-watches. I think Peter Capaldi did a fantastic job and I do like Twelve; however, his seasons are probably my least favourites of the show so far so I was happy to find a few gems that I loved a lot and think deserve to be seen and appreciated.
I recently had the pleasure of reading The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Leeand it is now one of my favourite books of all time. Reading this was such a pleasure that I think everyone should at least give a chance. It is a historical fiction that follows Henry "Monty" Montague who is about to embark on a trip with his friend, Percy, and little sister, Felicity. Along the way, a reckless decision turns their trip into a manhunt across Europe and presents them with a mystery to be solved. If you want to read more about the plot you can find it on the book's Goodreads page.
