So, as Zoe and I have been making videos this month, and we’ve done one everyday so far, I thought I would share a couple more with you here, so you are kept up to date.

(A Book (Graphic Novel) Review.)

This one is about FairyTales and their writers. Sort of, and my EPQ.

And lastly, this one is about my Favourite Female Literary Friendships, or some of them. :) I would recommend all of you guys making such lists. It’s fun and a nice feminist exercise.

Hi.

EXAMS ARE OVERRR. WOOO.

That done, I shall be watching LOTS of films and Youtube. One of the recent ones was entitle Across the Universe- perfect for any Beatles fan. :) One of the characters named Lucy, is wonderful, and I shall be photospamming you with her. :)

 She’s a great activist who fights for what she believes in. A great, strong, independant role model. She also looks amazing.

They wear SUCH rad clothes! (Channeling Rookie Mag: http://rookiemag.com/ )

Okay. onto the Feminism.

Recently, I went to a concert called Chime for Change, co-founded by Beyoncé (Who I ADORE) and I made a video about it, here:

Then there’s the site that allows you to personally help charities, called Catapult, which you should all check out here, although I explain about it in the video more. :) : http://www.catapult.org/

And lastly. Feminism. It rules. Just sayin’.

Oh also, My friend and I are Vlogging Every Day in June, so if you wish to see our faces, go hereeeeee: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheTwoEnglishGirls

Sorry for the weird randomness of this post. But I’m happy. And it’s summer. :)

Hello Again

Hello. I went to Namibia for two weeks. It was amazing. Normal posting shall recomence soon. Sorry for the silence. I made a video about it. Here’s the script and a link to it:

Recently, I went to the land of Africa, or more precisely Namibia. It was a wonderful experience. Now that I’m back in England I really miss it. Really miss it. The trip was split into two sections: the first week we worked at a school renovating and building dormitories and a playground. It was a lovely experience, as, in the afternoon the children-from about 5-12 years old- would interact with us, at one point they joined in the sanding of the building, and often wanted to be carried by us, or hold our hands.

They were barefooted and lead bare-lives, stripped back of any materialistic rubbish and only what is really needed. They were barefoot and raggedy. They were barefoot and so happy too. The children taught me that I have too much stuff. If these carefree kids can get by with two sets of clothes, no socks or shoes then I can shed my own layers and get to the heart of life, without anything unimportant or pointless.

Simply: we are taught that we need so many things. But we honestly don’t. Life goes on without socks or computers. Strip yourself down; lose the covers that hide you from the truth of yourself.

The children themselves were so sweet and unshamefacedly enthusiastic and honest. I hope I can live my life as they do and give to others who not fortunate enough to be able to. Lightly, but by embedding myself in the hearts of the others, leaving barefooted prints on their lives and on their hearts.

The second week was less for others and more for ourselves as people. The week was one full of walking, and unfortunately disasters. The culmination of both adjectives came together near rhe end of the week in the group’s (20 students) epic solo Trek. A trek we all took part in unguided by locals, adults or any teachers whatsoever. Just us and the desert, the animals (mostly baboons ) and vast mountains.

After setting off at about 6:30, as soon as it got light, we headed towards the now dry, wide riverbed (It’s winter and the dry season). We ended up having to leave four people behind due to leg injuries and heatstroke. The now 16 of us soldiered on and walked. And walked, got secretly lost, twisted ankles, ate honey and energy tablets. And walked and then sprinted, like Usain Bolt. The finish, a cluster of four head torches was approaching.

On looking back we realised we had walked for about 12 and ½ hours that day. Other than aching feet and a large appetite, the walk left me with the sentiment that, I can do anything if I want to. Further to this, I realised also, that ~I can do exactly what I want with my life, i.e help people, withut A *’s or B’s I can still achieve this aim. Without Oxford, A Levels, School, I will change the world for the better.

Lastly, the trip organised in conjunction with EHRA, or Elephant Human Relations Aid , took us, in a cattle truck, perched uncomfortably on the rails, in search of elephants.

We saw them, wrinkled, like old apples and plodding, comfortably along. So close to us any fast movements, noises or lights could startle them. We saw a herd named Mama Africa, with eleven or so elephants, three of them babies. They really did have huge ears and trunks like baggy trousers.
