When it comes to the pop culture that I was exposed to, it's safe to say that I had an unusual childhood. I clearly remember my mother blaring out 70s boy band, The Osmonds, from the kitchen while I lip-synced Spice Girls, and, later, S-Club Seven, in my bedroom. Mum introduced me to The Jackson 5, while my Dad preferred Pink Floyd and The Who.
I am like millions of you out there. I've hesitated at posting things for the longest time. There are a multitude of reasons why you shouldn't post your content online.

You can’t make a difference unless you speak up. Never be silenced.
I recently watched the 2018 film Christopher Robin, starring Ewan McGregor, who returns to the Hundred Acre Wood as a grown up Christopher Robin. Stressed about his job and family, he is in a destructive frenzy, rushing to help Winnie the Pooh find his friends so he can get back to work. He even grows impatient and yells at Pooh, which made my soul cry a little bit. It was a sobering jolt that stirred up some very strange nostalgic emotions. It was incredibly uncomfortable.
If like me, you were intrigued by the Witcher Netflix series and fancied getting lost in a new fantasy epic then you've come to the right place.
