Psych Part II: Did you know that …

I loved this post from Ana – I had to share it with you all!

Psych: Did you know that …

  1. The human brain forgets 80% of what it’s learned in a day?
  2. The music you listen to influences the way you view the world?
  3. Romantic love is only slightly different from the obsessive-compulsive disorder (the purpose of which is to reduce anxiety, and not obtaining pleasure)?
  4. There’s a gene for pessimists that makes them see everything in a bad light?
  5. Spending money on others brings more satisfaction than spending it on yourself?
  6. Communication makes us more intelligent, and enhances memory?
  7. According to the more recent studies, genetics doesn’t really influence the IQ?

Enjoyed this? Plenty more where it came from. Check out the Personality Tests section and have a great time discovering the darkest corners of your personality. I’m always happy to hear from you! Leave your thoughts in a comment, and don’t shy from making suggestions for further posts.

Torrents of memories 

I stand absorbed by the falling water. Like moments in time they coomr and go so fast. Lost to the pool below, mixed together in an inseparable mix.  Yet my pool of thoughts can be separated, in mixed from the rest to bring g back moments in a drop, feelings lost to be rediscovered.  Soon...

Hey there everyone.

Tonight we have a very eclectic, witty, stylish and fun guest for you to get to know better.

I’d like to introduce you all to author Lucy Brazier aka PorterGirl, as she throws her hat into the ring to chat about taking her real life experiences and channeling them into her writing.

Hi there Lucy, thank you ever so much for agreeing to being a guest here today.

It is an absolute pleasure, thank you for having me!

Let’s start with your latest release of “PorterGirl: First Lady Of The Keys”, which was just released at the start of this month.

The Titan Mystery – Part 15

Tranquility lifted slowly from the landing deck, the extra weight of the mechanoids making the thruster motors strain under the weight. In a few seconds the vessel had lifted  and pushed itself gently through the  opening out into space. "We nearly didn't make that!" Collins complained. "We're too heavy! What's that robot doing on top?"... Continue Reading →

Up Close & Personal: Deputy Head Porter

Make sure you guys all read this post about deputy head porter, she needs help in bringing herself to the knowledge of the masses in any country.

Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in celebrating a most auspicious day indeed – the release date for PorterGirl: First Lady Of The Keys is upon us! Those of you who have gamely pre-ordered will find your devices just that little bit more British this morning, not to mention having a sudden overabundance of buggers. The book is now live and available for purchase, with the hard copies being available within a week. In honour of this, I thought that today we would get up close and personal with the little lady at the very heart of Old College – the one and only, Deputy Head Porter.

As we all know, our heroine is the very first female Deputy Head Porter at Old College. This is a notion that at first excites her, but soon becomes something of burden as there are many in College who believe that firsts should apply to…
