Like most people, I favour a positive approach to life, even if I can’t always adopt one myself. Still, let’s face it, sometimes only negativity can pull you through. Here is the opening post of a new blog by the unfortunate “Pinay in Barnsley”:
I think I'm gonna start off by painting a picture of this northern town that is Barnsley through the eyes of someone like me. And I will try my best to present it in the fairest light possible.
Barnsley is a shithole. I know that's harsh but there is no other way I can describe it. It gets a very bad press simply because it's got no good press to offer. It has been my home for the last five years, no let me rephrase that - it is where I've lived for the past five years and my desire to leave and never ever set foot on it again gets stronger everyday. Five years is a loong time man.
