Freshers: How To Stop Yourself From Burning Out

September 26, 2012


As I have said before (and I will probably say a million times again) I am very jealous of those of you who have started University this year.

Just a Little Update…

July 23, 2012


My attempts to do the blog posts on the weekend obviously haven’t worked out too well. I really don’t want this blog to turn into nothingness so I’m going to try harder. I’ve been working on a post about the ‘Quarter-life Crisis,’ which I think I can really relate to at the moment. They really […]

Just a short post today of a couple of things that made me giggle.   Overheard in the Media Centre at Uni – *Staring through a window at the back of a guys head* “I’m trying to make him turn around. I saw it on Derren Brown. It works!” (It didn’t) Overheard in Superdrug – […]

Mother’s Day on a Student Budget

March 14, 2012


It’s almost Mother’s Day and with being at University we sometimes forget about our parents back home. My sisters and I used to make my mom breakfast in bed and bring her flowers on Mother’s Day. But last year I didn’t have chance to go home. This is where sites like Moon Pig, Funky Pigeon […]
