Fighting Talk on BBC Radio 5 Live

     “Fighting Talk” is a sports panel game on BBC Radio 5 Live which had its first series broadcast in October 2003.According to the BBC remit which is “to provide live news and sports coverage.It should be BBC Radio’s main outlet for breaking news by bringing its audience major news stories as they happen. It should provide context to its news and sports coverage through wide-ranging analysis and discussion.” (BBC Trust,2015),the show is ideal for those passionated by the sports matches or who want to catch the latest news worldwide and it is on air every Saturday morning.

     As for the presenters of the show,there have been made several changes throughout the series,more precisely “Johnny Vaughan for a year and a half, Christian O’Connell for about the same time and Colin Murray since February 2006. It’s been more difficult to get rid of him”, (BBC Radio 5 Live, FAQ, 2017).

    The format of the show reveals “a hilarious look at the volatile world of sport where guests compete for points with their sporting punditry. Informed comments are rewarded but witless outbursts are penalised.” (BBC Radio 5 Live,Fighting Talk).There is an emphasis on English top-flight football and other sports covered by the British news media.Moreover,Murray encourages that any female panelist can flirt with him for some extra points.

     The audience of “Fighting Talk” may be more male-dominated,considering the emphasis on the sports events. This is not particularly a good thing,given that about 2 years ago ,”5 Live’s new lineup was criticised for its lack of women presenters at a time when BBC director general Tony Hall has pledged to put more women on air.”(The Guardian,2015)

     However,Murray does have guests during the show that join him in the studio,namely “BBC 6 Music presenter Liz Kershaw, Canadian sports broadcaster Greg Brady, writer and broadcaster Dougie Anderson & comedian and voice of Love Island Iain Stiring” (BBC Radio 5 Live,Fighting Talk).They are not the only ones that interact with the presenter,as the listeners play their own important part-they are able to have their say on the show and answer some of the questions by e-mail or text message that are on the panel.The best and the most entertaining responses are read live by Murray. The audience even has “homework questions” that “often involve likening sports people to objects, animals or concepts: for example, “If footballers were houses, what would they be?” (www.revolvy.com)

“People Just Do Nothing” on BBC Three-Comedy TV

The cast of “People Just Do Nothing” from left to right side-Dan Sylvester Woolford(Decoy),Hugo Chegwin(Beats),Allan Mustafa(Grindah) and Steve Stamp/Photo taken from BBC3,2016

  “People Just Do Nothing” follows a mockumentary format,which represents,according to Collins English Dictionary,”a satirical television or radio programme in the form of a parody of a documentary” and was broadcast for the first time by BBC Three on 20 July 2014.”While TV has been undergoing this existential crisis,there has been one programme plugging away at the lost art of making people laugh” (The Guardian,2016).

 Starring Allan Mustafa,Steve Stamp,Hugo Chegwin,Dan Sylvester Woolford and Asim Chaudhry,the manager of the group,the British television sitcom reveals how the MCs of a pirate radio station,named ‘Kurupt FM’,based in West London,can combine their personal lives with their  greatest passion for music.There is no time slot on BBC Three,as you are able to watch it online at any time of the day.

 Its source of comedy comes from the stereotypes about mostly the youth,from their simple choice of clothing,the drinking and smoking habits to their careless and non-conformist manner.”Every character is really,quite comfortingly,dense,and their inability to read scenarios correctly is the source of nearly all the comedy” (The Guardian,2016). However,the actors do not want to admit their low status,given the multiple Grindah’s comments about how they “are going to go global,but you will very much have to be in the Brentford area to hear us”.

  The popularity of the cast increased rapidly over a short period of time,”Parallel to the central plot of Beats, Grindah and co’s unstarry existence as small-time garage MCs, the show’s cast have become stars in their own right, playing festivals in the UK and abroad”(The Guardian,2017) and one of the main reasons being that “it was created by a team of unknowns who were originally talent-spotted after posting some of their comedy ideas online”  (The Telegraph,2014). Furthermore,the relationship between the five of them,along with the transition to being adults and having obstacles to overcome both in their personal and proffesional lives,as well as the desire to chase their dreams are relatable facts and represent some of the key aspects that the audience,starting from the teenage years,may identify with.”These are some universal themes that they hope will broaden its appeal.”(Independent,2016)

  Refreshing,entertaining and the first show from this channel with an iPlayer debut, “People Just Do Nothing” suits the BBC Three programme,the remit of which is to “bring quality public service broadcasting through a mixed-genre schedule of innovative UK content.” (BBC Three Service License,2013)

 I graduated! 

    The last few weeks were eventful,chaotic,full of bittersweet memories,yet the one thing that was on my mind the whole time was the fact that I made it.

      I graduated from high school.

     Earnestly speaking,I cannot comprehend how or where the time had flew.It looks like yesterday I was a junior,with an enthusiastic and overly excited face,bad hair and funny clothes,waiting to embark on this new adventure.I was just a happy child,with no clue about what I was going to experience,learn or discover.I have to admit that the thought of growing up scared me at times.I just didn’t want to.Who would like to give up childhood? Who wants to be a grown up?

    Nevertheless,high school came with so much more that I could have predicted at the beggining.Happy days,proud achievements,long lasting friends,precious life lessons,a whirlwind of emotions are just a few of the moments that truly shaped me into a better,wiser and happier human being.

    As far as I can tell,I had some amazing opportunities during high school to evolve and to exploit the abilities I didn’t believe I had.For instance,I was involved in a couple of national projects from whom I have learned a lot about team work,social skills and patience.My creativity,determination,inspiration and strive were on high demand,always pushing me to outreach myself.The emotional side was developed in ways I didn’t experience before during a particular project,where I discovered that I am blessed in more ways than I can count and that happiness always hides in the littlest of things.You just have to acknowledge this unique feeling and treasure it deeply each day.The results of my work were proudly shown through recognition from my teachers and some diplomas,yet the most important outcome was the feeling of accomplishment and utter excitement while discovering my own self,my own passions and my own desires.These memories would certaintly not leave me anytime soon.

      Regarding the lessons that I have come to learn through great and sometimes,rough ways,I believe they are the essence of my high school years.They weren’t always easy or pleasant enough to bear at the time,yet the fact that I lived them at that certain stage of my life helped me to understand myself better and to prioritize my needs.I realized what path I want to follow.What carreer would make me feel like everyday I’m on a vacation rather than at a boring work place,as well as what is going to bring out the best of me.Some dreams already became reality,some of them not yet.Sure thing is that I am on the right track. Ambition,perseverance,patience and faith never fail to do their magic.

   Finally,four years went by faster than the wind.Four years filled with memories,beautiful events,complicated feelings,sleepless nights,the messed up me was able to get through it all.At the end of this chapter,it is supposed that I am going to be mature and to pave my way towards the future that I am wishing and looking for.This is exactly what I am doing.The funny thing? I am still a child.I always will be.At least this thought eases the guilt whenever I mess something up.

        To mark my words,take a look at some of the pictures I have and that shows me even more excited than when I eat ice-cream.One in a million sight,that’s for sure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The pursuit of happiness

At the end of this challenging,yet indeed rewarding year that flew more quickly than I could comprehend,I choose to reflect upon myself and my most beloved treasures.

Looking in retrospective,I believe that this year brought me more than I could ever hoped for.I laughed a lot.I cried.I smiled.I loved deeply.I cared.I won.I learned.I did.I achieved.I lived.There is nothing more gratifying than simply acknowledging all the emotions that have enveloped me,that I have felt with such an intensity,as well as that have been a part of me during all the encounters I had this year.To feel whatever I felt the need to,without any constraint,remains one of the best feelings in the world.To be able to express myself in order to find answers to whatever I was looking for on my own is the greatest way to know,discover and love myself more each day.Still,I am incredibly overhelmed by every single thing,experience,lesson and blessing that I have the power to count.Regardless of its nature,each moment was different and was meant to made me feel something.That something made me evolve,think further and broaden my horizons in ways that I didn’t even dare to think about before.

You see,if is one thing that I don’t believe in,that is coincidences.Thefore,I am aware that everything that I have been through,both good and less good,was destined for me and was something that I could handle.Better or worse,time had told or had showed me.Either way,reflecting upon this,I do not think that my sorrows or bad times didn’t play a massive part in my self-development process.I like to see them as essential pages,without this chapter couldn’t be truly complete or without I couldn’t treasure and acknowledge my happiness entirely afterwards.

As this year slowly draws to a nostalgic close,I feel the need to express my pure emotions towards everything I have obtained,as well as I have lost,every memory that I am filled with in my heart and soul,every person that I have met and  that have managed to change me in ways I couldn’t imagined.I could not wrap my mind on how I have all these people by my side and all the loving memories to hold onto and to treasure deeply.

I feel a better,happier and the richest person here just by thinking that my life had and will always have the same pursuit that will continue to guide me faithfully throughout this crazy journey-happiness.

May this new year lead you to discover your own pursuit and to never,ever give up on anything that makes your heart race.That’s what life is all about.

 

The power of thank you’s

    Saying that you made it is easy.Saying that you feel content for what you achieved is easier,even if you don’t feel like it for real.Saying that everything is yours to deserve might be the easiest thing to do.However,saying a mere “thank you”,from the bottom of your heart,to the ones who helped you along the way,who stood by you day by day,who simply were there,may not be that easy to say it out loud.The question that left me wondering is why?

     It is said that the best kind of people come in your life unexpectedly,at the time when you were left hopeless,lonely,in need of guidance,perhaps when your soul wasn’t completely happy.They manage to sneak into your life,to steal your heart and to never give it back to you.In a short period of time,these people prove to you what older friends couldn’t or didn’t even want to.That is a real friendship based on love,trustworthiness and honesty.The moral qualities that you have searched in so many,but have found only in a few.When you come across these kind of people,I want to tell you just one thing:keep them.Keep them with all you have got.Don’t make your life all about them,but make your life happier by being and growing together.Moreover,thank them.For every little thing.Thank your friend,your lover,your beautiful mom,your dad,your annoying sibling,even a random stranger that made your day,your neighbor.There is always someone or something that you have to be thankful for simply making a difference.You just have to acknowledge their importance into your life and start cherising every moment deeply.Right now.Trust me,you do not know when it is over.

     During my years through life,I have come to realize that gratitude represents the essence of happiness.The more grateful you are,the happier and lighter you become.There is no bigger satisfaction than being surrounded by the ones you love and the best way to cherish them is to show them your gratitude towards every single thing,big or small,that they do for you.You can do no wrong by expressing sincerely and out in the open your inner feelings and more importantly,proving them to the ones you truly care about.

    Taking into consideration what I’ve just rambled about,I believe so much in the unspoken power of a “thank you”.I believe in people and the raw way of healing one another through love.I am sure that even if you don’t realize at times,for most of them,a mere “thank you” does wonders because it shows that their efforts,commitment,love and appreciation towards you never go unnoticed.

   Earnestly,it is the simplest and easiest way to spread your love,your kidness,your emotions and the safest way to ensure the joy of tomorrow.Everything that you have,that you achieve,that you represent is a team work between you and your soul people.Let’s not take a single person in life for granted,either if they are a blessing or a lesson.So just say,from the bottom of your heart,”thank you”,as often and as loud as you can.Do it.

 

My dear 18

        Last week,I turned 18. Some may assume it is just an usual age that I have to go through,or that I’m just slightly older,yet,in all honesty,I’ve never felt so good.So full of love,joy,strength and elation for what is to come next,for the future which is slowly,but surely shaping into my present.

         I cannot lie and tell you that I’m not quite nostalgic about the outstanding power of time and the incredibly fast way it flies,without any questions for our humble human condition,whether or not we are ready to reach the next step in our lives.Nothing prepares us for what are we going to receive,live or feel.Perhaps that is why life itself is a mistery,an unique journey into the unknown,with nothing such as maps,instructions or backways.All you have is you on this one-way road.You are everything that matters.

        However,I like to believe that whatever life has in store for us,it would be so much better than we have ever possibly imagined.That is exactly what happened to me.

      Reaching the age of 18 years old and officially entering the “adulthood”,I must confess that although I look the same,I feel the same way about my life,about myself,I am filled with so much more positive energy,love,trust in my own fierceness and faith that give me so much power to look forward to living my beautiful life to the fullest.I may be a little bit sad about growing up so quickly,yet I know that every chapter of my life means more valuable memories and experiences to hold onto and treasure deeply.I am surrounded by a few,yet extremely precious people who makes me feel every day like I am the luckiest girl alive.Earnestly speaking,I feel blessed and filled with such a strong sense of contentment and pure joy just by thinking about that.It’s surreal.

   What I am trying to highlight is that every single age comes with something thrilling,new,fascinating and brings us so many incredible things that we cannot even realize at time,such as wisdom,maturity,more power of understanding and perception,as well as  love for your inner self,with whom you have made it through it all.It is indeed crazy how time is running,yet I love to believe that we become richer in thoughts,happiness,memories and knowledge only by growing up,constantly evolving,improving ourselves and discovering the breathtaking beauty the world truly holds.There is nothing more gratifying that living the moment with the most intensity and knowing that everything that it is destined for you,whether it is a person,a situation or a thing,will eventually find its way into your life,one way or another,under the most unpredictable circumstances.Either way,let it be.Let everything come to you naturally.

   All that it takes to be happy is to live gracefully,to love deeply,with all of your being,without expecting anything in return,to spread kidness and to know within yourself that you deserve the greatest things in the world if you wholeheartedly believe in your own self.

    Oh,and as a little gift for you,I am going to post some photos from me and my brother’s super sweet 18’s birthday party,where I realized that every moment spent with your beloved ones is absolutely worth a lifetime.

Why I write?

  Since I stumbled upon “The Everyday Inspiration” course by random these past few days,I decided that it is an ideal opportunity for myself to increase my writing skills and build up my confidence by sharing my stories and seeing where my imagination is going to take me throughout this quite interesting challenge.So,what better way to discover more of myself than to join and give the best that I’ve got?

  Day 1 comes with a pretty classic,yet still unconventional question that I find quite essential in our inner development as bloggers,because it is the kind of question that have endless answers,countless stories to relate to,thus different perspectives for each and every one of us.Seems easy to say it out loud,yet difficult to actually think about it in its complicated entirety.The way we perceive the act itself of writing and we set our goals for what is to come next in the future say a lot about our capacities,as well as the abilities to organize our blogs and to evolve,because I see writing as a way to connect spiritually and emotionally with yourself,as well as with other fellow bloggers.

  Hitherto,I’ve been dancing with the words and ideas wrapped up in my head throughout my several posts,which managed to give me so much pride,joy and satisfaction to my own self since the very first one I’ve published,in such a short time.But do you want to know why? Because of you.My readers.The ones who,through such a mere appreciation,good wish or kind thought brought me so many wonderful feelings,a too enthusiastic heart and an incredible trust in my gift.That is still mind-blowing to me and I am forever grateful for doing what I love and constantly evolving into a better and happier person.

  Thefore,to be able to answer thruthfully to the main question “Why do I write?” ,I would say it is because I strive to make a difference.I strive to be that positive thought that could make someone’s day a little better and smile larger,merely because we ought to help,encourage and spread our lessons,bright ideas,kindness and guilty pleasures to those around us every single day.

  Fact is,my greatest purpose by expressing and opening up my soul here is and will always remain the one which tells me that I could make somebody happy.I could make someone cry.Hell,I could be someone’s source of inspiration.I could make a difference in someone’s daily thoughts,feelings or brighten up their days.I could have the power to evoke some pure,authentic feelings through my words.My own pieces could have a positive impact over someone’s mind and soul.These thoughts literally make my heart warm,steady,excited and keep me going on the right track,because I am a believer in the good of everything.I believe in people,especially,and the raw way of healing one another by sticking together,loving and empowering each other through it all.

   I reach after to inspire,to learn,to discover,to grow and to believe in what it is mine,while being inspired and touched by the ones around me.

Change-The chance to pursue your dreams?

   If is one essential thing I have learned and have counted on it faithfully by now,is that change is so damn good and such a bold move for those who dare to live.Be it about a change in your daily behaviour,thoughts,feelings,a change of background,a change of places ,of work,of plans or even a major change in your self development process,there is always something benefic,inspirational and merely refreshing in making a difference.

    With or without our will,we are faced with changes all the time.Life puts us on edge countlessly,in order to bring out what is the best within us,as well as to be a quick challenge for ourselves,whether or not we will lose our authenticity along the road. Regardless its nature,the way we cope with the effects that a change produces in our lives on a daily basis is the main difficulty here.While some may have a clear and healthy perspective of life,thinking with excitement and purely opening their hearts in front of a new opportunity to learn,grow and evolve,others may not have the same attitude of dealing with the insecurities and risks that a change might include.

     Nevertheless,what is right on this matter?

   First of all,change means SACRIFICE.Either we’re speaking about a relationship between two people,a family,a friendship situation or even getting a job or a place in a whole new city/country/state,you have to consider that along the countless hours of hardwork that had finally paid off,there has to be some sort of compromise that you need to overcome and that may or may not stand in the way of your utter happiness.Now,in order to do this,you have to prioritize your feelings,as well as your desires for your own self.You need to stand your ground and truly reflect on what does this new change will mean to you and your loved ones as well.You could answer yourself the following questions:

 Is this change going to be a step closer in fulfilling my dreams?

 Will it make me truly happy and content with myself,regardless how many people I may left behind?

 In 5 years from now,is my decision still going to make me proud?

 What will I gain is better from what will I have to lose in the process?

   Reaching this point,I tend to believe that no amount of questions could compete with your determined heart to achieve what you’ve got on your mind.There’s nothing stronger than what your soul tells you to do.So,just follow it.Follow your heart.Believe in your intuition.They can do no wrong.They would certainly lead you into the best place you could be at that certain stage in your life.

   Secondly,change expects TRUST.To have such a belief and confidence in yourself as to know that the differences and challenges that appear on your journey serve the main purpose of shaping you into a better,wiser,more experienced,as well as a happier human being is something not many people entirely own.Why not? This should all of us be asking.Why should we let fear or doubt dominate our hearts instead of joyful emotions that could actually do us some good,like faith,hope or elation for what is to come next? The world itself is made of changes.

    I guess that what a lot of us fail to realize at times is that believing in your own self is the best thing you could always do,regardless anything that may interfere unexpectedly in our lives.Thruth is,most of the changes that happen in life come  in the most unexpected shapes,perhaps at the most uncertain times.You cannot control what your life is going to bring to you,but you do have a say in what can or can not control you.It is all up to you,from how you look at your own person to how you interpret whatever it is  purposely given to you.Easy as that.

   Lastly,change involves BOLDNESS.As beneficial as change indeed is,it doesn’t always pay an easy price thus it takes a lot of courage to actually go for it and take a step forward towards living your dreams.It may seem unsure,unpredictable,scary at some times,but everything that matters is how you are going to take charge of your life and the decisions,along with the sacrifices you are willing or not to make.

  Personally,I love to embrace every change that comes my way and associate it with an ideal chance to develop myself,to expand my horizons of feeling and thinking,to discover,to learn,to become richer in knowledge and memories,as well as to evolve into the best person I could be.

  How do you perceive the changes you come across in life?

Lionheart

   Today marks a bittersweet day for me.

  Today,I chose letting the memories to  resurface and to mend my soul for no other reason than finding the inner peace I’ve been looking for.At some times,I may have found it but other days,like this one,makes me feel the pain I have wished so badly to erase.

      Quite frankly,how could you define pain?

      What is the first thing your mind drifts to while thinking about pain?

       How could you make it go away?

       How could you accept and eventually live with it?

       Pain could really have a good thing within it?

  It is wisely said that God gives us no more than we cannot handle.Challenges,troubles,obstacles,sorrows,they usually come in the most unexpected shapes,at the most uncertain times of our lives.We cannot deny them,we cannot hide from them like they would dissapear in a blink of an eye,we cannot run far away,we just can’t back down until we are strong enough to face them properly and knock them down.Without any weapon,any help or perhaps any clear judgement,we have nothing and no one but ourselves in this battle.Raw,insecure,vulnerable,scarred,fearful,yet faithful.We are all what we have got.

      As every emotion that we are blessed to experience throughout our lives,I tend to believe that our spiritual development comes closer while going through lifechanging situations in front whom we cannot be nothing else but powerful.We have no other choice left but get up,stand our ground and rise.This crucial feeling of having the strength in front of the unknown is scarcely acknowledged by ourselves,but I guess that a little part within us knows we can do it.This unsignificant portion that is screaming at us that we can overcome any inner struggle that we may deal with and eventually,heal our minds and souls.You know what? Today I chose to believe in that small part of my brain,which told me that whatever I may have faced in the past,whoever I may have lost psyhically along the way could not break me to the point of not seeing my life anymore.

   Thruthfully,pain is,amongst other emotions,the most daring one,which steals so much from us,leaving us wounded,heartbroken,lost,without any further direction or even an escape plan.It hurts a lot,I know.However,I like to believe that despite what we have to lose in the process,we could still gain something back.We could learn something from our heartbreaking moments that had happened to us and manage to expand our horizons of thinking,loving and appreciating every single thing and person we have by our side.

As for me,I think that the pain of loss had taught me a lot about life and its authenticity.I’ve come to learn that regardless the ache that will undoubtedly be printed in our hearts,it could never come close to the pure happiness,priceless memories,laughs,lessons and undying love we had gathered with our dear ones.These are what I will remember the most.

  You need to discover your lionheart and bring out the fierceness you didn’t even know it existed inside you.
