Valentines Date Ideas

Hey Internet Friends,

So, as Valentines Day isn't too far away, I thought I'd help you with date ideas for the special day.

Cinema Date - A simple classic but always a lovely idea with someone you know well. Maybe not the best for a first date as it can be difficult to get to know someone in a cinema.

Coffee date - Another classic but a much better first date idea as it's a great way to get to know someone. The public atmosphere and background noise can help reduce some of the awkwardness of a first date. This date is also a great idea for people who have been together for a while as it's nice to just sit and talk over a coffee.

Movie Night - This is always great fun and is a much cheaper alternative to going out. Snacks are always much cheaper from he shop than a cinema and you can pause the movie for toilet breaks and food whenever.

Art Gallery - A lovely place to go for creative minds. Peaceful and a great way to connect with someone on a different level. This is especially brilliant if you are on a low budget as most art galleries have free entry and just ask for a small donation.

Dinner - Eating out is always nice if you have a higher budget but is best for a couple who have been together for a fair amount of time. Feeling creative? Cook dinner at home for your partner! Or cook a meal together. A great way to connect and have a good laugh. Even if it all goes terribly wrong, you can always order take out!

Hope this gives you some inspiration.

Title: Nineteen Eighty-Four
Author: George Orwell
BlurbHidden away in the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith skilfully rewrites the past to suit the needs of the Party. Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world he lives in, which demands absolute obedience and controls him through the all-seeing telescreens and the watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the Party. In his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow-worker Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal. 
Why I started reading it: It's one of the novels I'm studying as part of English Literature. Loved it the first time I read it and continue to enjoy it each time I re-read it. Despite holding quite political views, it's such a gripping novel. Not the happiest, I'll admit (but what do you expect from a dystopian novel), however there is a nice sprinkle of romance in there.
Rating: 8/10

Quotes

Hey Internet Friends,
Happy New Year! As you will notice over the next few months, I have decided to alter the layout of this blog. But, on with todays post, New Years themed quotes.

'And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been' - Rainer Maria Rilke

'I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.' - Neil Garman

'Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.' - Oprah Winfrey

'Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering "It will be happier".' - Alfred Lord Tennyson

'Every time you tear a leaf off a calendar you present a new place for new ideas and progress' - Charles Kettering

Hope you enjoyed,

Love and Hugs,
