As the daylight hours shorten and the temperature starts to drop, I begin to feel a sort of dread towards the inevitable late-night library sessions and bitterly cold walks home. Autumn and Winter is my favourite time of year, but when swamped with coursework one can’t help but let the night (which arrives at 3pm) put you in a bit of a blue mood. But everybody knows that the perfect remedy for gloominess or lethargy is some cheering tunes on your walk home or halfway through that marathon-style studying. Here are my favourites:
As the owner of an Amazon prime account I have access to many free films, but on top of these I have purchased seven films which tell a lot about me: firstly there’s the three gritty, tense Iranian dramas, which show that I study Persian. Then the three Richard Curtis/Hugh Grant films, which show that I have been dumped in the last couple of years and that I’m a massive softy. And finally there’s the crowning glory, the one I watch most, after perhaps Four Weddings, Mamma Mia, which shows that I have great taste. This is backed up by the fact that this summer I only went to the cinema three times, once to see Incredibles Two with my brother, and then twice to see Mamma Mia! Here we go again – the most anticipated film of the century for me and every woman named Sandra.
