Get stuck in to your weekly dose of all thing GOOD right here!
In case you somehow missed the news, the A Level and GCSE results days took place in the last two weeks. While this may not seem like good news for everyone, we just wanted to say congratulations to all students who collected any results. Pass or fail, you managed to reach the finish line in a year that seemed determined to stop you from getting there. If you are struggling with results, you can get yourself over to places like the Manx Uni-Verse page on Facebook for advice on what to do next and keep in touch with your school or UCM. Hopefully, amongst all the Covid confusion, you managed to pat yourself on the back for finishing the school year so congratulations and on to the future!

Last week there was a podcast on the round up so we thought we’d continue that and introduce you to ‘David Tennant Does a Podcast With…,’ a podcast where David Tennant interviews his celebrity friends (very hard to decipher from the name, I know). After recording his first series last year, Tennant is back with series 2 and his first guest is Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons. This episode gets into Parsons emotional decision to leave the show that brought him to fame and growing up gay and in the closet. Tennant has a nack for getting emotional stories out of people and also has the connections for some amazing guests including Ian McKellen, Olivia Colman and Whoopi Goldberg. You can find all episodes of series one and the Jim Parsons episode by searching ‘David Tennant Does a Podcast With’ on Spotify, Apple Podcasts or probably just wherever you usually find podcasts.
Ah TikTok, the home of creativity during COVID-19, from short dances to little skits to making fun of Lin Manuel Miranda and now knitting a life-sized Thanos from the Avengers movies. Yep, you read that right, a woman on the video sharing app has taken it upon herself to attempt to knit a fully life sized (8”3’) figure of the purple supervillain from Titan. Starting in May, the Thanos isn’t yet finished but you can watch the latest update to the right and head to her account to watch the other videos from the beginning by clicking here.
