Being a Labour Party member it is always so devastating┬áto hear of the passing of those who were so active within the party and striving for the implementations of the same values and rights that I so whole heartedly believe in. Furthermore, when it’s someone who is so close to home and worked hard to…

Reflecting

I have officially completed all of my essays for this semester! Well, I still have to hand the last one in tomorrow but nevertheless I am happy to say that I do not have to read Plautus again for a very long time! But this post isn’t going to be about essays or anything happening…

A Student Diet

Ever since I started university I’ve had to shop and cook for myself for the first time in my life. I am finally in a position where I can eat whatever I want, whenever I want with the only down side being the bloody washing up! Nevertheless, I’ve taken it up. Being a foodie I…

Essays

Ah, the midterm essay deadlines have arrived. Such fun! I apologise for quoting from ‘Miranda’ there, but it seemed appropriate…Anyway, I’ve been having the best time writing them! In all honesty though, it actually hasn’t been that bad. I’m good at writing essays. The content could be completely incoherent but they’ll always be well written….

Working Life

So I have finally entered back into the world of work. After being unemployed for over half a year in order to enjoy myself and become accustomed to university life I finally got myself together and found work as a tutor. And I absolutely love it! I’ve only had one previous job before which was…

Politics

Politics. One the most crucially important activities within the life of every single person on earth. It affects all of us, and to some degree we are all engaged to it whether we realise or not. For many years now politics is something that has meant a lot to me. It’s been a topic that…

Friendships

It’s a weird thing isn’t it? Friendships. You meet a random human that you take a liking to an then and decide to spend a significant of time with them, be there for them in times of need, listen to them, rely on them and essentially love them freely. Neither of you owe each other…

My Handsome Waiter

I haven’t been on many first dates in my life. The first was with my ex boyfriend which was nice but very much like we were just hanging out due to the fact that we had been friends for two year prior. The second was with a boy I met at a bar who shared…

Resolutions

This is running a bit late I know but every year, like many others, I myself also like to write down a number of resolutions to keep for the upcoming year. Rarely do I ever keep them, again like many others, but nevertheless any visions and plans of self improvement is better than planning to…

First Semester

Hello all, long time no see. I can honestly say that it has been a long three months, hence my absence. There’s no way that I’ll be able to go through everything in immense detail but I’ll do my best to give a reasonable outline of recent events. So firstly, I survived semester one of…

A New Beginning

Apologies again, it has been another long while since I have touched my keyboard. In this case the excuse of a hectic schedule can be used however. This past month or so has been so completely crazy and I can’t even begin to express how many things I’ve done as well as how many things…

Catch Up

Wow it’s been a while. I would say I have been far too busy to post anything but that would be a blatant lie. I have been up to a few things though. Seeing friends, reading and I also went on a short trip to London for a family wedding. I have to admit that…
