Why I use Myers-Briggs

Some of my most popular posts on this blog have been my "Typing Doctor Who" posts, where I assign a Myers-Briggs (MBTI) type to a Doctor Who character and show my working. A couple of years ago I was completely absorbed in everything MBTI, and those posts were the product of my obsessive habit of… Continue reading Why I use Myers-Briggs

How I learned to stop worrying and love Brutalism

Don't get me wrong. I don't like Brutalist buildings. I think they're eyesores and blights upon the urban landscape. I would hate to work or learn in a Brutalist building, let alone live in one.

I absolutely love┬áThe Princess Diaries. One of my favourite TV shows… Continue reading I’ve been watching: Sierra Burgess is a Loser

What if Harry Potter were written for adults?

I'm reading the Harry Potter books again for the 27th time. No, I lie -- it's only been 26 times. But that's okay because it's been about five years since I as much as picked up anything with J.K. Rowling's name on it. See, ever since I decided I ought to start reading books that… Continue reading What if Harry Potter were written for adults?
