Small Restaurants that go Big on Flavour

Does size matter? Not when it comes to these restaurants! I would never choose one of these restaurants as a place to write, or suggest it for a large group of people, but if you are looking for a place to eat well by yourself or with a friend and don’t mind bumping elbows, this is the list for you!

Film Roundup – March 2022

So I used to write little film reviews for fun on my Instagram when I first got a Cineworld unlimited card. After the past 2 years of barely any visits to my favourite place in the world, I’m determined to make the most out of it this year, and with plenty of big films slated to come out this year, I’m very excited! So if you want yet another bunch of reviews from an underqualified blog writer, you’re in the right place!

March Update: Hello again! This month has been one of personal transition. So although I didn’t get to the cinema as much as I liked, (I saw 3 of these films in 1 day) my visits to the cinema were appreciated. If you missed the February edition, you can read that here, and don’t forget to check out my article on some of my favourite films from 2021!

Film Roundup – February 2022

How Crypto is being shaped by the Russia/Ukraine conflict

On February 24th Russia invaded neighboring country Ukraine after building up a sizable military presence along its borders. In the early hours of the morning, Bitcoin fell to the second-lowest point of the year. But it was a momentary blip. A huge rally began, pulling the price from around $36k, up to just shy of $45k. But why? Why is Bitcoin of all things benefiting from an East European conflict?

The Glasgow Writer: Singl-End

With a firm commitment to The Glasgow Writer, I began with a recommendation to Singl-End (not a typo) in Merchant City from a friend. And I’m glad because I had never noticed it before I went looking for it. Not that it’s hidden away, but just because I wasn’t too familiar with the Italian Centre. Situated on John street, on the left-hand side of a Tryptych of businesses; the other two being Katie’s Bar and Osteria, it’s not immediately obvious that it’s a café. But is it a good writing spot?

The Glasgow Writer: Origins

Working remotely is becoming more common across cities in the UK, but a problem with it – I find – is that during the week, the line between one’s home life and work life blurs considerably. So, once a week, depending on my workload and scheduled meetings, I decided to make an effort to get out of the house and spend a few hours working in a different place in Glasgow. Not only does the change of scenery help with my headspace, but it also means I can support local businesses. At first, I stuck exclusively to a few establishments I knew well. But Glasgow has a wealth of cafes, bars, and restaurants and I’d like to explore more.

Initially, in this series of reviews, I hoped would become a sort of compendium for writers or remote workers; a guide to places where you can work/write and escape the home office and freshen things up. But as I explore more, I just find restaurants I like and want to share!
