I Had An Abortion. This is Why.
It was 2017 and the whole year had started wrong. Sometimes you make a decision in life that kick-starts a chain reaction of shit events. Maybe it was because I was 27, who knows.

I don’t know how to pinpoint which one it was that made my life so terrible-all I know is having an abortion was not one of them.
Manchester: a city written by The Smiths
Manchester, so much to answer for, sings Morrissey in ‘Suffer Little Children’, back in the day when the singer didn’t put his fans under constant moral dilemma.

Why You Should Watch Your Partner Play Red Dead Redemption 2
If you date someone who has ever laid their hands on an Xbox or PS4, you have probably heard relentless promises about Red Dead Redemption 2. If you’re me, you’ve watched countless YouTube videos about it as well (including a creepy German guy with hunting knives and white gloves whose channel is dedicated to the opening of video game boxes). Before the 26th of October arrived, I had never thought I would spend my free time watching someone play PS4, but Rockstar Games made this possible. After all, the joys of cohabiting are many, and this postmodern relationship arrangement also includes diving into a game’s narrative without even knowing where L3 is.
