    • Two weeks on from the Manchester Arena attack

      2 years ago

      I'm sat here in my room almost two weeks on from the Manchester Arena attack, in the exact same spot I was in when I first found out about this horrific incident.


      I remember leaping out of bed and running into the newsroom, the mood was somber, everyone was exhausted from working through the night. It was one of the busiest weeks of my life. Each day more and more of the sickening plot unraveled before my eyes and I saw the true extent of the damage that was done. The list of fatalities grew and grew and their names were revealed. I knew people at that concert and people I know were close with people that died that night. I edited interviews with the emergency service staff who were first on the scene. What they saw and had to go through that night was unbelievable.


      The reality of what had happened didn't really set in until I sat in my garden on Friday night. I just sat there in silence, I felt empty. This happened in my hometown. I love Manchester. I grew up here. I went to school here. I realised what love is here. Manchester is my life, my heart, my soul. It's a part of me, a huge part of who I am and to see someone hurt innocent children in my city, it destroyed a part of me.


      I wasn't at the attack, I never saw anything first hand and I think because of that I felt guilty for even feeling empty after what happened. There were people there who died and lost loved ones, I can't even begin to imagine what they are going through.


      I woke up early this morning from a nightmare that I was a member of the public in a terrorist attack. I woke up in fear and panic, I thought it was actually happening at that very moment and I was about to die.


      I've been strong all through this so far and I'm not about to stop. We need to be strong for those who lost their lives, for their families. We shouldn't just move on, we need to stand up to these people who try to destroy our lives, our homes and show them that they are nothing to us. We'll remember what happened here, not because of them, but because of the love we have for each other.


      I love you Manchester, forever.

    • Bag packing

      Just arrived in Leicester for RvB UK and emptied by bag. I packed 4 pairs of socks for 2 days. Possibly went a little overboard on the sock front.

      Sup!

      So I've been pretty busy recently.
      I moved closer to the centre of Manchester which should be loads more convinient for community days and meet ups. Speaking of which I'll be attending RvB UK on Friday and Saturday which I'm looking forward to. If anyone is going down there on Thursday night let me know as it would be good to meet up for drink :) also let me know if you are going to RvB UK in general as I'd love to catch up and meet you guys in person!
      The reason I am now able to attend RvB UK is because I got a new job, well a few new jobs hahaha. I now work part time as a community content curator for Trinity Mirror which is a newspaper company probably best known for the newspaper 'The Mirror'. Getting this job was perfect timing with the move and I am extremely grateful that they gave me the position. Freelance work is great and usually pretty well paid however it isn't regular income which is kind of important when you have bills and rent to pay! Oh and to those of you who just live off freelance work, you are amazing!

      Anyway I look forward to seeing some of you at RvB UK, remember to let me know if you'll be there and we will meet up!

      Hey guys, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who helped to rebuild my house on the minecraft server, it looks awesome. I am really sorry that I couldnt be there to help during the difficult times, I had alot of life stuff going on such as signing for a house, packing and and getting a new job. I'll be online much more towards the end of this upcoming week and look forward to seeing you all again. I hope you all know that I love you all and you are always in my heart.

      And to my boi Dug, I hope everything is going well with your exams and I hope I see you again soon in some shape or form.


      Love and miss you all,

    • RvB : UK Minecraft server

      I haven't had this much fun on minecraft in a long time! The server is full of really funny and friendly people who have made this server one of the best servers I have been on so far. Since day 1 the server has grown to become an awesome little community with everyone having their own house, each having its own unique little quirks. I am very excited to see the progress of this server over the weekend and look forward to seeing everyone I have met so far again. I've been taking some pictures along the way and have uploaded them in an album on my images tab.

      If you havent already checked out the server hop on there as soon as you get a chance, you are really missing out!

      So tomorrow is going to be pretty exciting as I'm going to the post office to pick up some RT shirts that I ordered for myself as a reward for finishing uni. Since uni finished I haven't been out much due to my family moving next to a forest kind of in the middle of nowhere hahaha, but I'll finally be going to Manchester city centre again and I'm looking forward to having a good look around as it has changed each time I visit!

      Anyway as for what's next, I'm really tooling forward to MCM Manchester and I'm hoping to steward this year. If anyone else is going this year let me know, it would be good to meet some of you lot in person :)
