What’s the time difference for males and females getting over break-ups?

Recently I’ve been getting over heartbreak. It probably doesn’t show on my face or in my actions because I have THE best friends a girl could have but there’s still a teeny-weeny tinge in my chest whenever He comes into my mind or He shows up by updating his facebook status (which is rarely may i add!) But one question I want to pose to everyone out there is why does it seem to take girls longer than guys to get over a break-up?

Glee GQ Controversy

Now, for those of you that haven’t heard of Glee, where have you been the past year? It’s the biggest show worldwide, but to save you time, go and Google this show then come back to me, you’ll understand who and what I’m talking about.

In this month’s American GQ, three of the shows characters are posing in some, should we say, provocative poses. Lea Michele, Dianna Agron and Cory Monteith who play Rachel, Quinn and Finn have been under attack this week from online haters and parents groups calling the shot ‘paedophilic’ and that GQ ‘is sexualizing the actresses who play high school-aged characters on ‘Glee’ in this way.’

Hang on a minute, yes they play high school teenagers but in real life Lea and Dianna are 24 and can decide on what they think they should and shouldn’t do. GQ is a man’s magazine and if children are reading it, isn’t it the parents fault for letting them?

How your Student Loan goes down the drain

Every year thousands upon thousands of students decide that carrying on their education and going to university is the best option for them. Especially now as the recession is causing many businesses to fall apart and jobs are being lost because there is no work to be done. I know from experience as my dad has lost his job and my mum is on the verge of losing hers. But university seems to be a way of spending 3 years with a massive student loan which all goes to waste on alcohol and night club entries anyway, leading to lectures being missed every once in a while (or nearly every day for some people) and just either blagging your way through the 3 years or failing them.

I’ve only just started my second year, but I know that in my first year all my money just seemed to vanish. Living in halls, it was simpler to ‘keep control’ of the money you had. Student loan companies would transfer money into your account and as soon as it went in, it went straight to the halls of residence, leaving you with a substantial amount of money to last you a few months before the next instalment, but alas, as a fresher you want to meet as many people as possible and make new friends, so going out is essential, and with no money, that’s what an overdraft is for. I’ve never been in my overdraft, as I sneakily took money out of my savings account, but I know plenty of people who are hundreds of pounds into it and even their loan doesn’t cover getting back out of it.

That’s the scary thought, imagine going so far into your overdraft that no matter what you do, you just can’t get out of it. One of my housemates boyfriend is so far in, every time his wages go in, the overdraft sucks the money up so he is completely skint every month because of it. Maybe that is his own fault, maybe he shouldn’t have been going out every night spending god knows how much on drinks and entries fees, but then university, wouldn’t be university without getting pissed every night.

My Kenyan Experience

"Welcome"

Kenya is such an amazing country. It has amazing people and an amazing culture, and I was so privileged to have spent a month with such caring and loving Kenyans who were so happy that 50 teenagers were keen to be a part of their life for the 30 days we were in the beautiful country experiencing their way of life and indulging in their culture.

Ramsey’s football crisis

Arsenal and Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey’s season was brought to an end on Saturday after he broke his leg during his side’s 3-1 win against Stoke.

The Welsh teenager suffered an horrific injury when challenge for the ball by Stoke Player Ryan Shawcross who attacked the teenagers ankle, which buckled under the impact.

Shawcross, who received a red card for the tackle, departed the pitch in tears, while Ramsey was left on the floor writhing in pain with his right foot appearing to hang at an unnatural angle.
