Don’t you think this GIF is just awesome?!

I might get a lot of stick for this post… But whatever. This isn’t aimed at any particular person so just take it with a pinch of salt.

Swearing in pictures has always baffled me… People flip the camera off, actually posing with their middle finger raised.

It’s just so… Weird.

I genuinely cannot find a logical explanation behind this phenomena, so give me a sec while I get my shit together…

Change is on the horizon my friends. (I have no idea why I just wrote that, It sounded inspiring and I didn’t know what to name this post).

I finally did it guys…

I embraced ‘change’ with open arms and squeezed the living daylights out of it.

You could say this marks the birth of a new eraActually, don’t. Continue reading

Blog 30 – Evolution of The EssWhyDee Blog

Official Esswhydeeblog Logo

So… It all started as a mere idea.

I was on a gap year and I had a desire to express my views… In particular, I wanted to share a story.

The first hurdle for me, was choosing the right blogging platform for myself. Blogger seemed like the obvious option, but immediately I was put off… Same situation with Tumblr, but decided I wasn’t going to be a micro-blogger. Finally, I found WordPress, downloaded the Android app and stuck with it… And boy am I glad that I did.

So I finally typed up the story I had to tell. It was called My Bizarre Experience. I split it into two parts because initially, I wanted the very first readers of my blog to return a few days later. I had chosen a very bad, dark theme at the time and everything was all very… Urm… Amateur.

Seriously?

Who even wears sunglasses indoors?

Why would you do such a thing?

Does the Sun penetrate your ceiling, before burning the insides of your retina???

Blog 28 – A Dramatic Little Red Riding Hood Story – Blogisodes

OK… So this is the first in the Blogisodes series… Don’t take it too seriously as It’s only a bit of creative writing… I don’t expect this to garner many likes… But if you do like a bit of fiction now and again… ENJOY!

English: Little Red Riding Hood, illustration ...

It was five in the morning, the Sun was still rising, there was a small sprinkle of rain and the birds were starting to wake. The traffic of London was returning to its usual hectic self and it seemed to be a normal Spring morning.

Although it seemed that the majority of locals were asleep, there was one street, not too far away from the city centre that was more alive than usual. The side street was filled with sirens of police cars and ambulances alike. Every member of the neighbourhood was out on their doorsteps looking on at the tragedy that had just transpired.

Blog 27 – Have you Ever…? ( A Tearjerker )

tennant

What you’ll read below was written out of boredom and has been sitting in my drafts for a very long time.

Usually, If a post goes into my drafts folder, it doesn’t end up getting published…Ever. What goes in, doesn’t necessarily come back out. (Cue evil laughter)

I’ve published it because it had the highest votes in the poll, within this article. However, I don’t expect it to gather many views or likes as it was written very quickly. (Wait, have I just put you off reading the rest of this article?)

But anyway, Get your tissues ready, because you are about to enter the emotional roller-coaster! (Height restrictions apply)

Have you ever…

Blog 26 – Something I Forgot to Mention

Question mark liberal

Unlike usual, The EssWhyDee Blog has had a bit of traffic from web searches the last few days…
People have genuinely searched for the correct uses of “There”, “Their” and “They’re” and ended up on my blog reading my previous Why Bother? article, I feel quite sorry for them actually…
All they got was a sarcastic rant which would’ve just confused them more than before reading it. Unfortunately, I failed to realise that there are many different kinds of people in this world, some that may still be of young age and learning…and others who are just plain thick…

Blog 25 – There, Their + They’re – Why Bother?

keep-calm-and-use-grammar-check-for-there-their-and-they-re

There, their and they’re

Seriously…?

Do I actually have to cover this topic?

It’s basic human knowledge. Some would even call it common sense.

I mean. Come on. How hard can it be?

There = A person’s possession

Their = They are

They’re = Opposite of ‘here’

Blog 24 – Hanging up my Boots

the-end-03

So I’ve Just got back from holiday and I’ve been thinking…

Enough is enough.

It has been just under 4 months of writing on The EssWhyDee Blog and now I feel that it is time…

Time to hang up my boots.

After countless sleepless nights, tens of hours spent thinking about things to write, laughing at my own jokes and checking every single minute for new views…It has certainly been a roller-coaster ride for me, to say the least. Continue reading
