How to fit a Reindeer into a Submarine
When we think of submarines, the first thing that comes to mind might not be to do with reindeer. The two just do not seem like a likely combination, which makes the following information so interesting bizarre.
If Ice is a Rock, then is Water Magma?
Have you ever wondered about the definition of a rock and compared it to the definition of ice? 'Rocks are rocks!' I hear you say to your screen, 'They are hard and made of minerals! Ice is made of water!'
The Joys and Struggles of Moving to London
I am fascinated by the fact that each of us has our town, city or village that they call home, and that place is theirs and only theirs to call it so. Some decide to stay where their roots are bound and live their lives close to normality. Others, like myself, are travellers and move from destination to destination, never really settling down. In the last five years, I have lived in five various locations spanning the length of two countries, England and Portugal. After finishing college in York, UK, studying abroad in Guimaraes, Portugal, and graduating from Manchester, UK, my friends and I decided to move forward together and relocate ourselves and our theatre company to London.
Today, someone left a strange box on my doormat. Encased in black cellophane with rings of duct tape binding it all together, this peculiar package looked challenging to open. At first, I was excited, I loved getting deliveries, but the more I thought about the details, the more suspicious I became. Questioning its origins made me hesitant to bring the abandoned package inside. I couldn’t recall actually purchasing anything that would serve as an explanation. Being estranged from my family and having not made any meaningful connections with another human in recent years led me to guess that this was not some pleasant, surprise gift. I decided to bring it inside; standing in the cold wasn’t going to answer any of my questions. The package itself was no bigger than a footstool, but whatever it was, it wasn’t light!
When the Sea-Goat Climbed Teide
Astrology. The study of the movements and positions of the stars is believed to influence our species and environment. You can trace back any ancient civilisation and observe their close relationship with the stars. Some saw them as gods, while others as ways of navigation. We can trace back the roots of astrology as far back as 32,000 years ago, between 30,000 and 10,000BC, to ancient cave paintings marked with lunar phases seen at the time. No matter what your view is on astrology, we can all agree it provides some phenomenal reading.
Behind Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night
You must have seen this painting before. Vincent van Gogh, Starry Night, 1889. You can at least hazard a guess to its observant title. This is Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night.

Why does everything taste like Chicken?
One day, I was scrolling through TikTok, and I stumbled across this gem! And it was this short, entertaining video that got me thinking about the following:
