Gwen Stefani Just Kicked Dita To The Curb...

HOLY MOLY Gwen Stefani! Here's me blogging about how amazing Dita Von Teese looks at 39 and then Gwen Stefani decides to have a 42nd birthday and look even better.
During the 90's I was a rather impressionable child. Dita Von Teese didn't exist to me then; all I had to look up to were The Spice Girls and Gwen Stefani. Thankfully I chose Gwen as an ultimate role model...and shortly after Courtney Love.
LOOK at how amazing Gwen still looks..

I literally cannot get over the fact that she's had two children, she's 42 and she's still working hard and releasing music. Sure, she can afford to have her hair done professionally, her skin cared for by experts and her clothes designed by her, for her, but DAMN; she's working it well.
I'll never forget I'm Just A Girl. She made me believe in the fact that I was female and STRONG in a time when all I seemed to be taught was that to be female was to be inferior.
Thanks Gwen; I hope I look as good as you I'm 42 - and if I don't then y'know, who gives a shit?

Back To University For The Last Time...

Tomorrow I begin my third year at university. The thought is pretty terrifying but exciting at the same time. Today is actually the official start of the term but I get Monday's off so I think that's rather a good start!
This year I'm taking four modules; Researching and Writing a Novel, Writing a Novel for Young People, Teaching Writing and Reading as a Writer.
I'm extremely excited about finally getting some guidance on a novel I've been trying to write for a long time, as well as having to read lots and lots of novels! I am equally terrified at having to teach writing and manage my time between this, reading a LOT and writing two novels.
In approximately 8 months time I'll be graduating with (fingers crossed) a first in creative writing and have a couple of novels ready to send to a few publishers.
Due to my workload rising into oblivion from now on, I may not be blogging very often but I will still be around reading all of yours and gaining inspiration from you lovely people.
Let the madness begin....
