So it's 2016..

I'm not normally one for resolutions, for me I've normally broken them within a week! The only thing I want for this year is for it to be awesome and full of new things (that doesn't count as a resolution, promise..)

For today's post I just thought I'd show you my favorite picture of every month from 2015:

  January: I got the chance to see Wicked for the 3rd time 
February: Andrew Mcmahon live
 March: Preparing for a new Star Wars film already with R2D2 ice cubes

April: I finally got to meet Frank Turner (note the action shot)
May: Getting crunk after our final exam ever!

June: Graduation Day was amazing

July: Another gig, Alkaline Trio were so good

 August: I was in Bournemouth for a month with work and we got to see a Red Arrows display

September: During my brief stint living in London I got to hang out at Buckingham Palace for the day

October: Selfie in the British Museum. Best Museum ever.

November: Frank Turner month as I called it

December: Finished 2015 with a selfie with bae.

What were your favorite moments of the year?

Footage from the edge of the Solar System

Just a quick space themed post today, thought I'd share a video that was taken by the Pluto New Horizons space craft during it's flybe earlier this year. I thought it was pretty amazing that we have a video from 7.5 billion kms away! I'll have a more in depth post on this mission soon!

Happy New Year Everyone! What are everyone's plans for this evening?

Life, the Universe and Everything 3

First proper blog post in a while, so I thought I'd start with something simple like a lifestyle catch up!
I got back from London in October and this is some of my favorite moments since then..

 Wandering around the Botanic gardens whilst it looked so pretty, Ever seen a man crowd surf with a double bass? First time for me as well, Death Cab For Cutie live (it was amazing), Frank Turner live (it was also amazing)

 When Topshop send you these heels accidentally, Panto Time, Glasgow Cathedral looks very grand

Best Christmas Cake, When your own brother forgets which sister he is writing a card for, Boxing Day Sales (I don't know how to do the heart eyes emoticon via blogger but those times a million)

Hello Again!

So blog friends, it's been a long time.. Nearly a whole year since the last post an a lot has changed since then! I graduated from uni with my masters, started a grab job and I've been away for a good part of this year!

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and a good New Year coming up, the picture below is the best Christmas Cake I've ever had.

Solar Eclipses Part 1

This is just a quick blog post today, and I think I'll make this part of a small series in which I talk about eclipses. There are two types of eclipses that we see from Earth, solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse. The short explanation for both of these are in a solar eclipse the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth and in a lunar eclipse the Earth passes between the Sun and Moon.

A lunar eclipse, as seen from Earth.

This is just a really early warning to say that there will be a solar eclipse in March this year! It'll be on March 20th, and the diagram below shows where in the world it will be visible from!

Any area in white, means that the eclipse won't be visible, but I'll talk more about that later! Hopefully Part 2 will be up on Thursday!

Have you guys ever seen an eclipse before? Will you be able to see it from where you are in the world?

My Last Semester

So today was officially my last first day at uni (confusing, eh?). It is kinda funny to think that my 5 years at university is finally coming to an end, but I'm so happy to be getting near there.
It's so exciting when you start, and so completely different to school or college. But it's also so much more work. The thing I never realised when starting, was how much everything is on you. All the studying, project work and silly little things like turning up to classes on time, it's on you and no one else.

But enough of all that serious stuff, enjoy it whilst you can, it's amazing and you'll remember it forever.
Ps the Glasgow campus looks like Hogwarts, so I'm just going to insert some pictures of that here..

New Year, New Post

So it's finally 2015. And that means I want to go back to blogging more regularly. This year is going to be scary, I finally graduate university, and that means getting a 'proper job'.
But back to more blogging, hoping to start with more Astronomy, lifestyle and general science/technology. Is there anything you guys would like to see?
But bring it on 2015, please be a good one.

Ps here are some of my favourite moments of 2014
