Lara Croft is one of those larger than life video game characters. She’s been the epitome of girl power ever since she became the titular protagonist of a cult classic, Tomb Raider, in 1996. Fans and non-fans alike, know her as an intelligent, independent English archaeologist who, at the drop of a hat, transforms into a strong and agile adventurer.

Last year was not a particularly great year for me and my family, or for the world for that matter, it seemed like there was always some sort of tragedy or issue happening. I am therefore very okay with waving goodbye to 2016 and welcoming 2017 with open arms. Usually my first post of the year would be my resolutions but this year I have decided to look back at 2016 and find the good things that happened each month to remind me that whilst shit happens, life goes on and you have to make the most of it whilst you can.Read more »

A new thirst for life. And the passion I haven’t felt in a while in wanting to blog and be a stable part of this community again.
