Netflix Favourites #2


I recently did a poll on my Twitter, asking which blog post you'd like to see up next. An updated Netflix favourites post won the poll obviously, but I was so happy about it as I loved writing about my previous ones! Enjoy and hopefully, you'll find your next series to binge watch!

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
If you're looking for a light hearted comedy show, you have to check this out. It's based around Kimmy Schmidt, a young woman who has just been freed from an underground bunker, after being kidnapped and brainwashed by an insane reverend fifteen years ago. We see Kimmy on her journey to adjust to life in NYC, learn the latest lingo and sort her life out. All whilst hilarious situations happen around her. Now I can totally understand that you may think this show sounds nuts and as far away from a comedy as possible, but trust me its genius. 

Orange Is The New Black
Back in June, I finished season four of this show within a matter of days after it was released on Netflix. But oh my god was it one of the best, most heartbreaking seasons yet. In case you have never heard of Orange Is The New Black before, which I very much doubt. The first season is based around Piper Chapman, a woman in her thirties who gets sent to Lichfield prison for a crime she committed several years ago with her ex-girlfriend. As the show goes on we meet and learn about all the other inmates and we quickly learn just how corrupt Lichfield women's prison is. 

Pretty Little Liars
Now I know that this was in my previous Netflix favourites, but that was before season 7 started and I became glued to my tv once more. On top of this, I've decided to start watching Pretty Little Liars from the very start again, which just makes me even more confused haha. In case you're wondering what this show is about, I summed it up in this post. Or if you're a PLL fan and about to watch season 7, all you need to know is that it's slightly darker than previous seasons and there is just as much drama as usual!

Miranda
Miranda Hart has always been one of my favourite comedians, so when she created this sitcom a few years ago, I knew I would love it. The show revolves around the life of Miranda, a tall, clumsy, awkward lady (basically me), and follows her hilarious attempts of trying to impress Gary, her long time crush, whilst trying to please her mother at the same time. If you're a fan of Miranda Hart then you'll love this show, I watch it over and over again and it never gets boring!

Absolutely Fabulous
I love this show! It revolves around Edina and Patsy, two best friends who are always causing mayhem, drinking too much and up to the wrong antics. Much to the dismay of Edina's daughter Saffron. Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, who are both just brilliant at comedy, portray the main characters in this show. So if you love those two women, I'm sure you're going to like this!

Are any of these shows your favourites too? & What do you recommend I binge watch next?
Let me know!

Reasons I Hated High School

Before Instagram filters, it was all about that sepia!
With it being four years since I left high school, I thought it was only right to reflect on all the reasons I hated it and share a few vile pictures with you along the way...

The Popular Kids
Certain people in this group were the type of people who would wind me up the most. Just because you weren't in their little group, they wouldn't even speak to you (even if you were best friends in junior school). They thought that together with their latest boyfriend, they were the latest BeyoncĂ© and Jay Z. Calm down love, you're not taking over the world just yet.
The Teacher Who Hated Kids
I'm sure certain teachers just took up the job to make their pupils life a living hell. Lets take Mr O, for example. Luckily I only ever had him as a cover teacher but that was by far enough. He was the type of teacher who terrified you before you even walked into the classroom! I know there's strict teachers who just want to get on with their work and vice versa, but Mr O over there didn't even want to hear you breathe. Sorry Sir, I forgot I came to school to die.

P.E Lessons
I enjoyed P.E lessons, unless it was our turn in the schools swimming pool! Don't get me wrong I love swimming, I just don't like to be forced to parade around doing so in front of 30 other class members. You were also one of the lucky ones if you had P.E at the end of the day, if not you got to walk around for the rest of the day stinking of chlorine and looking like you'd just been struck by lightning. Oh what joy.

'SOLUTIONS'
This was the place you got to go to if you were in trouble, you know the place where they would sit you in isolation and pretend you've just robbed a bank rather than not done your homework? Yes, well I got called down here once from a lesson, having being accused of throwing an apple at somebody's head. I found that hilarious! FYI I rarely eat apples and my aim would be so bad I wouldn't have done much damage anyway. I shall just clarify though in case your thinking 'what sort of thugs blog am I reading here?', I DID NOT THROW THE APPLE!

Don't get me wrong there are certain things I loved about the place, how easy life was when you had nothing to worry about except homework and all the friends that surrounded you, but that's for a different post!

Did you enjoy high school? What were your least favourite things about it?
 I shall leave you with this horrific image, your welcome.
