Completed: The Campus 50 Challenge

With graduation coming up in a couple of days, I’ve been getting all reflective. And those reflections brought me back to a little idea that myself and a friend had in first year, that became something ultimately much bigger. A campus bucket list.

Iago’s secret blog #7

That’s it now; I’ve rubbed Roderigo so raw he’s almost to the bone. He’s angry. He is so angry. Whether he kills Cassio or Cassio kills him, or they both kill one another, makes no odds to me. I don’t care. Any which way, I gain. But really, they must both die. If Roderigo lives,Continue reading “Iago’s secret blog #7”

Iago’s secret blog #6

Oh, you’re going to love this one, honest Iago. So I’ve told Othello that I’m going to talk to Cassio about Desdemona while the Moor hides in the corner and watches the conversation. Little does Othello know that actually, I’m going to question Cassio about his relationship with the prostitute Bianca! She dotes on himContinue reading “Iago’s secret blog #6”

Iago’s secret blog #5

Hahaha, perfect. Opportunities have played straight into my hands here… Desdemona dropped her handkerchief, and who picked it up but my wonderful, whorish wife. So now all I need to do is drop this napkin in Cassio’s room, and voila! He’ll pick it up, Othello will find out, and all hell will break loose. AfterContinue reading “Iago’s secret blog #5”

Iago’s secret blog #4

And you think that honest Iago is playing the villain? Haha, don’t be silly. The advice I gave Cassio to have a chat with Desdemona was good and true – it’s the best way for Cassio to get his position as lieutenant back. But remember, when devils want to do their worst, they like toContinue reading “Iago’s secret blog #4”

Iago’s secret blog #3

All I need to do is get Cassio to drink and make him drunk as quickly as I can. That way, he’ll be filled with quarrel and rage – as offensive as a dog. Lovesick Roderigo, along with the other guests, will be very present in the public eye to watch the fallout. Oh yes,Continue reading “Iago’s secret blog #3”

Iago’s secret blog #2

Well, I know that Cassio loves Desdemona. I also know that she loves him too. But what’s a bit of exaggeration, eh?! Honest Iago. I mean, I love her too. I’d especially like to bed her as revenge for Othello bedding Emilia. Wife for wife, know what I’m saying? But let’s be honest – Othello’sContinue reading “Iago’s secret blog #2”

Iago’s secret blog #1

Hahaha. I tell Roderigo to fill his purse with money but really, he is my purse, my fool. I don’t give a crap what he wants or whether this is going to help him; all of this is for my profit only. Because I hate Othello and I want revenge. I have heard rumours thatContinue reading “Iago’s secret blog #1”

#WarwickShakespeare creative project

So, it’s that time of year; I’m coming to the very end of my degree. And to finish it with a bang, I’ve decided to undertake an exciting creative project for the module on Shakespeare that I am currently studying. That’s right, I’m running my own Shakespeare play… With a twist. I’m going to beContinue reading “#WarwickShakespeare creative project”

Sian goes skiing

So after trying pole fitness at the beginning of the summer and absolutely loving it, I decided that I’d like to try some more new sports. So to end my 2014 with a bang, I thought it would be cool to give skiing a go for the first time in my life.
