    Hello Sarcasteens!

    If you’ve been following us here or on Twitter and Facebook you’ll know that this month’s theme is Going Global. This month’s theme idea came from our writer Emily, who thought it would be a good idea for us to talk about important issues that affect us, our communities and the world as a whole!

    The Honourable Woman // Entertainment

    I can’t remember any recent television that has been beautiful.

    We had Luther but that’s now over, and both Elba and the writers have said that there most probably won’t be another series (though Idris has suggested he would like to do a feature film).
    Since then there hasn’t been many series’ of beauty since, The Honourable Woman is head and shoulders above anything recent.

    This Year, There Will Be Cucumber Water // Thoughts

    Reinvention is the theme for August, and to be honest it’s a very apt theme for me. Every August, without fail, I make plentiful vows regarding how amazingly organised, neat, healthy and motivated I’m going to be throughout the school year. I purchase multitudes of stationery to help me in this aim. I write lists and schedules and rotas to ensure I stay on top of things. I tidy my room until it is terrifyingly impeccable. And I start the week I go back to school with a mug of green tea and a healthy breakfast of porridge and a smoothie, convinced that this is the year it will last.

    When I first decided to attempt reinvention for the sake of both myself and Sarcasteen, I interpreted it purely as a surface-level change. Every day for about two weeks I’d take one step towards becoming a different person. I’d wear my hair differently, or dress in clothes unlike those I would normally wear. I deleted all the music off of my iPod and put on new music which I’d think I’d like (and learnt along the way that I really didn’t). I acted differently, especially depending on who I was around at that time. But it wasn’t working. I wasn’t becoming a better person, just a different one. I felt fickle. And besides, nobody really noticed any change, so I gave up and reverted back to the person I was before my futile attempts at reinvention. But I wasn’t happy with that. I was fine with who I was, don’t get me wrong, I just knew I could be better, and I didn’t want to give up on reinvention. Especially being, as I am now, at such a turning point in my life. I wanted to reinvent myself, but I just didn’t know how.
