My final fine art photography series:
"It’s the one with cracks that the light gets through."
I am interested in creating images that act as bridges between our inner world and our outer world. A way between hurt and healing. This body of work explores the human condition with a specific focus on feminine consciousness and emotional/ psychological struggle. Despite delving to the core of some dark emotions, there is an element of beauty and hope. It’s as if the dark and the light are holding each other, proving so much truth to the idea that you can’t numb the dark without numbing the light.
My images speak to the light and dark within us all.

Today one of my TAs and I attempted tactical ignoring of a child with severely challenging behaviour during a PE lesson I was teaching in the hall. It led to one of my more surreal teaching moments, as I did our cool-down stretches in the dark as he turned all the hall lights on and off and we all ignored it.
(The ignoring thing worked pretty well though. I actually got through a PE lesson. It was great.)
Just read a post from a friend of a friend on facebook about beginning to look at teacher training courses for Primary, and so many people saying how competitive it is etc. etc. and… it brought back the memory of two years ago when I was frantically applying for my course, and then the giddy excitement a few weeks later when I found out I’d got on. A little bit of me still can’t believe that I managed to fluke my way onto such a fantastic PGCE course at a brilliant university. I complain about my job, but it’s good to be reminded how lucky I am to have it in the first place.
Boy, am I a lucky sod.

Regardless of whether you watch Scandal or not, everyone needs to watch this and see Lisa Kudrow fucking nail her scene exploiting misogyny and sexism.
I’m pretty sure that just changed my life.
Don’t interrupt me when I’m speaking.
This was amazing to see on a show that is currently very popular.
I am in a super good mood tonight you guys. Just thought you should know.
Frolicking in the autumn leaves, this little lion cub is having the time of her life as she excitedly plays in her enclosure.
Tiny cub Karis proved she’s not too dissimilar to human children as she threw herself into the pile of golden leaves carefully collected by her keepers, even ending up with a pile on her head.
Staff at the Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling, Scotland, had been raking up the leaves to keep the attraction tidy, when Karis’s keeper Brian Reid realised that his little charge might enjoy playing in them and moved the pile into her enclosure.
