It’s July and I’m wondering what I’ve actually done this year. I’m also in such a blogging slump. It’s that annoying combination of having lots of little ideas floating around in my head but having absolutely zero motivation to make any of them actually happen. Sometimes you just have to go with the slump and wait for it to pass, but there are also a few things you can do to try and get out of that rut sooner…
In this new series, I’ll be highlighting an awesome women every week, starting off with some of my favourite film ladies.
I was introduced to Lynn Shelton’s films by accident a few years ago. I was in Amsterdam on my own, feeling a bit lost and in need of some cinema-therapy. I found myself at a cute art-deco cinema and was recommended Your Sister’s Sister. I went in having only seen the film’s standard issue rom-com poster and came out with my spirits high and my faith in film restored.
The last couple of weeks have been packed with trawling SpareRoom and viewing houses which is right up there with job-hunting on my list of things I hate doing. It has also been tragic few weeks for the world, and it’s hard to know how to be positive in times like this.
I’m trying to focus on some of the good things and these are some of the small things that having bringing moments of brightness to my days.
