On Friday 28th June, I visited HMS Warrior, the World’s first Iron Clad ship, at the Portsmouth Dockyard. I haven’t got much to say about it because I was only able to get onto the main deck and for this reason there wasn’t much for me to see or interact with.

When I was about to get on HMS Warrior, I was greeted by a member of staff who was extremely polite, I was really impressed with the way she...

On the 14 June, I visited the Explosion Museum. Like the Submarine Museum, Explosion is based in Gosport, but it is a part of the Portsmouth Historical Dockyards.

In the Explosion Museum itself, there were lots of different sections. Explosion was great in the sense that there was a lot of space to manoeuvre.

In most of the rooms, the information boards were at a good height for me to read. However,...

On the 17th of May, I went to the Portsmouth Dockyard again. This time I visited the galleries. The first gallery that I visited was called Nelson Gallery. The Nelson Gallery was brilliant because it was spacious and there is lots of space to manoeuvre around, and it is wheelchair accessible.

I am pleased to say that most of the attractions were at a perfect height for me... I could see the whole o...

Why does life always go so incredibly fast? As I live my college life out, I'm getting more and more scared of what's to come next. The logical part of my mind is telling me not to worry, and that I will be fine, but the other part is going off on a tangent. I am scared stiff about what may happen when I leave, but I can't even talk about it without having a meltdown. It's ridiculous!

There I was t...

On Friday, the 26th of April, I visited the Submarine Museum in Gosport. Even though this is in Gosport, it is a part of the Portsmouth Dockyard. When I arrived, I gave the receptionist the tickets. The staff at the museum were excellent because they spoke to me directly in a welcoming manner, which helped me relax. In fact, all of the staff were brilliant! They arranged for a guide to take me aro...

Throughout my life I have had people telling me that I can't do things, and I'm sick of it! Yes, I can't do some things, and I admit that, but don't tell me I can't. "You'll mess it up" and "you might make it worse than it already is" are some of the things that people say to me. It really pees me off when they say things like this because most of the time they don't even let me try! 

Some people l...

I know that I have been quiet on my blog over the past few weeks, and this is because I haven't really had much to talk about. I've been trying to get my head around the leaving college situation... Haha, I thought I had it under control, but it turns out that I don't. So there you go.

Anyway, as you may have noticed, I have started up a petition to Facebook in order to try and the make them listen...

On Friday, the 15 of February I went to Action Stations at the Portsmouth Dockyard. I was let in through the accessible entrance straight away, which was good. First of all, I lined up to get my tickets swiped so I was able to get in. I had great customer service at the main desk, the woman who was working on the desk was fantastic because she spoke to me directly in a welcoming manner. She gave m...

In 2017, I wrote a post about how disappointed I was to hear that Barbie's friend, Becky was discontinued because her wheelchair didn't fit into the Barbie house. Barbie's creator, Mattel introduced a new friend of Barbie's named Becky. Becky uses a wheelchair. When I found out that Mattel had got rid of Becky, I was annoyed and disappointed because even though I had never played with any Barbies,...
