Star Trek; The 50th Anniversary

Today, 8th September 2016, is exactly 50 years since the first episode of The Original Series was aired on TV, and it’s a big day for nerds and Trekkies alike.

There’s a new series coming out, Star Trek: Discovery, in early 2017 – and it has been promised that it’ll live up to the previous televised series’ and astonish us.

Unfortunately, Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin aren’t here to celebrate the day with us, but 6 Seasons, 13 films and many crews later, here we are 50 years since it all began. Star Trek is undoubtedly the most successful long-running franchises of all time.

John Rylands Library

Vintage Vases and Bottles in the Shop
aka the most beautiful building in Manchester. Like seriously. It's basically a museum on the first few floors, with a cute lil shop and cafe on the ground. The highest floor (that you're allowed on) is the reading room, you can sit, bring a laptop, study there, and theres huge books in display cases. It'd also be the perfect place to base GCSE Art and Photography projects on.

On the first floor, there's rooms just filled with books, dating hundreds of years back, theres even fragments of papyrus from around 500AD.

The library actually reminded me a lot of Hogwarts, all the books, dimly lit corridors, stained glass windows and high ceilings with patterns all throughout the bricks.
