Gilmore Girls

2×18 HOLLYWOOD BABYLON

The Winchesters are on a tour of Hollywood. The tour guide says that they are passing the place where Gilmore Girls (2000) is filmed, and if they’re lucky they might get to see one of the stars. Jared Padalecki, who plays Sam Winchester, had a starring role on Gilmore Girls (2000), playing a character named Dean Forester. At this point, Sam Winchester looks uncomfortable and quickly leaves the tour bus.

Why I love Autumn

I love Autumn it is my favourite season without a doubt.

The things I love about Autumn are; the colours, the leaves are changing, all of a sudden people start wearing oranges, reds, browns and all sorts of autumn colours. As well as this the clothes, I love wearing plaid, greys, still get away with wearing skirts and cardigans. Comfy jumpers, not having to show my legs and also layers are all great reasons to love autumn.

I also find autumn is a great time to go some where cosy and read a good book with a nice hot chocolate.  It’s also great weather to light a fire or candles which i love.

Halloween is in autumn which is also another reason why I love Autumn. I use Halloween as an excuse to eat loads of chocolate and Halloween themed snacks and watch films such as Hocus Pocus and Ghostbusters.

The food is amazing; soup, pies, root vegetables, cheesey foods, no one judges you for eating more potatoey foods or more food in general. The healthiness of summer and trying to get the perfect summer body disappears and diets go out the window which is soooo much better and less pressure.

Not to mention that tv shows start back again in autumn which is another reason to love Autumn. You can snuggle into your duvet or blanket and binge watch episodes of your favourite shows and it’s perfectly acceptable.

‘Geek’ Girls

Women have been into ‘geeky’ things and fandoms since they were created but why do we get challenged by men and other people to prove that we really are a ‘Geek’ or into a certain fandom.

I have been into Harry Potter since I could read the books and even before that my mum bought the first Harry Potter film on video. I love Harry Potter and everyone who knows me knows I love Harry Potter. That’s all that should matter that I like Harry Potter not whether I’m a girl or whether I know the colour of the carpet in the hallway of privet drive (it’s green by the way). Men aren’t questioned about the things they love like the marvel universe or DC universe, if they say they like those things then they’re asked what shows they watch and they talk about the shows. I’ve been told that I’m not a ‘real’ fan of Marvel because I don’t watch Agents of Shield. This is ridiculous!

Why is a woman who is a geek or a ‘fangirl’ depicted as someone who is crazy about one character and only because they’re hot and also attacking anyone who also liked that character. I’m not saying that no one is like that. But you cannot push all the fangirls or women into this one tiny category.

Why should gender affect the way people appreciate and enjoy various different fandoms?

Favourite female character 

Jody Mills – Supernatural

Jody Mills loses a lot when we first meet her, her husband and her son are both dead at the end of the episode we first see her in and she is now exposed to the supernatural world. She learns a lot about the Supernatural goings on and she learns to defend herself. Even when she meets Donna she is a little skeptical about letting her guard down even for a second. She takes in both Alex and Claire and with them she takes both of their troubled pasts and tries to give them a normal life and make them go to school even though their lives have been interrupted by the supernatural. She parents both of the girls and sometimes even the Winchesters. She even managed to deal with Crowley and live. I also think that Kim Rhodes portrayed the character of Jody Mills beautifully and I am so thankful for this amazing, underrated, parent like character who isn’t perfect and that’s ok.

So you want to work in IT?

I am a Woman who works as a technician in a repair centre.

I repair photo printers, computers, servers,  receipt printers, projectors, opticians equipment etc. I don’t work in an IT department and i don’t work with software so unfortunately it won’t be much help to any of you who are interested in that side of things but if you have any questions I would be more than happy to try and help answer your questions.

I work in a very heavily male environment and apart from one person I am not treated any different because I am a woman or because I am younger. What you do learn is that once you become part of the team they all band together for one another. Although they may give you a bit of stick it’s banter and I absolutely give it back every time I can but if someone else from higher up or a stranger started on anyone else we would stick up for them, I know I would and I have seen them do it. If you’re stuck on how to repair something because you may not have seen that fault before or you’ve not worked on them for a long time, they are always happy to give advice or help in anyway they can but also in a way that it’s not done for you and you learn to do it yourself.

As a woman we find certain situations scary but please don’t let this stop you from pursuing a career in IT, we are just as good as men in IT but if we never go into these fields then how can little girls see women working in the industries they want.

IT can be anything, working in IT can mean anything. There are various jobs, Electrical Engineer, IT Technician, Someone who works in the IT department, Someone who repairs IT equipment, Someone who is heavily working on Software, Someone who is heavily working on Hardware, Someone who does programming and coding. There are so many different fields for anyone who has even an interest in IT or computers. Always research the kind of job you decide you like, I found myself asking my friends who work in various IT sectors for their advice and experience and that helped me decide on more hardware based work and eventually helped me decide to go for an apprenticeship.
