10 things about life I wish I’d known 10 years ago

There’s a famous line in Game of Thrones that I think is so perfect it sums up life. Ygritte’s famous line she says to John Snow is ‘You know nothing John Snow.’ This is something I have heard from my own dad over and over and I admit I roll my eyes every time. If you watch Game of Thrones you will know exactly what I’m talking about. Its a perfect line from Ygritte and my own interpretation is she is referring to so many things in John Snow’s life not just the mysterious White Walkers who roam past the wall (You’ll have to watch the show if you don’t […]
