I know. It’s such a stupid title, 🙁 yet, I am feeling a little emotional right now, and I need to do what I love the most in order to feel myself again. Also, please don’t judge my writing on this post. It’s taking me so much restraint not to edit as I go here, […]Continue Reading
My Top Nine Writing Movies
Heya guys Welcome to another R.E. Brooker blog entry. Okay, so there are a lot of writing movies for us to enjoy, but unfortunately many are lost in the generic whirlpool, those films with more universally relatable plots, (although, being a writer myself, I will never understand why not everyone in the world doesn’t want […]Continue Reading
‘I’ve been to the Year 3000,’ (and back again) BASS MANIA!
When my singing teacher joked, “You’ve played the keyboard in videos now, you should play the bass next time!” I allowed myself a giggle. Me? A bass player? The idea was ludicrous; a notion for a comedy show…. and yet…. The next evening, Dad suggested that I try his out. It took me five minutes […]Continue Reading
A Few Musings…. Four Months On
For all of us, it has been a tough start to the year. The Coronavirus has shaken the world, and sometimes we all don’t know what’s coming and going. 2020 was meant to be so good, better than last year, and already, we all want to see the back of it. The loss of my […]Continue Reading
Are Harry Potter and Draco Malfoy emails the new fanfiction fad? Well, it’s definitely mine!
In the summer of 2004, I sent an email as Harry Potter. My friend replied, as Draco Malfoy. A little down the line, we put the emailing behind us. She had her life. I had mine. It was a cluttered time, filled with school, homework, family. The years moved on, but I had never forgotten […]Continue Reading
Back To School…. Finally!
This blog entry is going to be all about how my first week as an ‘ABA Tutor’ went. I was terrified starting a new job, but I didn’t run away. I wanted to give this a shot, and I’m so glad that I did. The people there are really friendly, understanding and welcoming. For someone […]Continue Reading
An Emotional Rollercoaster of rejoicing and…. feeling pensive (or should that be ‘pensieve?’)
I wasn’t going to write a new post tonight – given my nervousness from the day – but now I’ve calmed down, I’m ready to supply my thoughts. This morning, I had an interview for an ABA Tutor (Applied Behaviour Analysis) in an autistic primary and secondary school, and throughout the afternoon, I was certain […]Continue Reading
Want to fit in with the locals of Emmerdale Village? Don’t turn away, here’s some lingo today!
Through watching ‘Emmerdale’ clips for over six hours, (sad as that is) I’ve come to learn that there are various ways of saying things around the village. After all, you have to spruce up your language if you want to shop at David’s, have a coffee at Bob and Brenda’s, or enjoy a lazy afternoon […]Continue Reading
My Bad Boy of Emmerdale: Why do I love Robert Sugden?
Robert Sugden…. The Schemer. The Manipulator. The Accidental-Killer. A guy with no limits, and sometimes (it appears) no conscience. He’s been beaten up, shot, threatened, and even left for dead, after his step son deliberately tried to poison him with carbon monoxide…. That handsome face has been punched so many times it’s hard to keep […]Continue Reading
