This week I’ve been re-watching Skins (UK). It’s to me still one of the best teen dramas in the last two decades or so, up there with Puberty Blues (Australian) and My So Called Life (US). I relate to shows like this because they remind me of my own teenage years. The chaos, going off the rails at times, the complete despair other times. However, these series also reveal the high points – life-long friendships created, happy times, absolute excitement over the silliest things. So yes, will probably be re-watching the entire series over the course of the next months :). If you’ve never seen Skins (UK) you should really give it a try, especially if coming-of-age, teen crazy is up your alley ^_^.
Other than remembering the terrible teens, I’ve been . . .
1) This week I did my first television interview as an author and entrepreneur. It was on The Mid-Morning Mix talk show which airs on CBC TV 8, Barbados’ local TV station. According to all reports it went well and though I was initially nervous, I was able to handle myself and engage in a lively conversation throughout. In summary: Yay ^_^!
2) Editing and working on a little experiment in the process. Nowadays I tend to write something else while editing work, as this seems to aid my process overall. This writing experiment is something I’ve never tried before and I’m really excited to see the results. Will tell more the closer I am to the end :).
3) Filmed a few more vlogs this week and a new one will be uploaded to ‘Jackie Jones on YouTube’
tomorrow. Check out and subscribe to my channel where weekly vlogs (first time stories, updates, book reviews, author confessions, etc.) can be found ^_^.
