How To Make This Year Better Than The Last

Christmas has passed us and January has arrived, along with countless new years resolutions just waiting to be broken and dark, rainy days that tempt you to hit the snooze button for the 7th time. I feel as though the new year tempts a lot of people (myself included) into wanting to make drastic lifestyle …

New Year, New Me?

*Probably not, Lucy… don’t get your hopes up.   Every year social media, as well as real life, becomes inundated with people claiming that January marks the beginning of something new. Apparently at no other time of the year are people incapable of change because the universe forbids such an action happening. Karen, what do …

Goals for 2017 – We can do this!

Hello once again! It’s been a while since I’ve put up a blog. In fact, it’s been so long that it’s a little daunting to return. Hopefully everyone has had a wonderful holiday season and is raring to go for another (hopefully, less terrifying) year ahead.   Speaking of the new year, it’s finally time …

The Quest: Making Brown Rice Interesting

Since being at uni, I can imagine that for the majority of us, myself included, found it quite a shock at first, when we realised just how independent we needed to be. For me, cooking and just food in general was one of the most difficult ‘independent things’ I had to do. it seems simple; …

New Term, New Me (lol jk)

Disclaimer to future employers: I am not actually like this. This is a sketch. Please hire me. Dear Diary,  I can’t wait to write in your fresh pages everyday. I’m going to write especially neatly in you. This is a new start. Maybe I’ll write some inspirational quotes at the top of each page, get …

A Happy New Year’s

New Year’s Eve is always a hit or miss kinda night. There’s always a lot of pressure to be doing something crazy fun and sometimes all the hype can leave you thinking ‘was that it?’ Nights out can be expensive, if you live in London and decide to go see the fireworks you have to …

If I did new year’s resolutions…

The whole, ‘remembering how much I love my family and have missed them while at uni’ lasted a whole maybe, three days.  Then I remembered exactly why I enjoy uni and independence so much.  I might only be halfway through second year but I haven’t lived at home for nearly two years now, spending half …

A Shiny New Year

Well Christmas has Christmassed, New Year has New Yeared and now it’s 2013: Year of the Elephant (because elephants have long memories and I really need a good memory right now!). To be honest so far I feel like it’s been the Year of the Sloth but maybe organising early (ish) morning revision was optimistic …

Procrastinating, monopoly, piles of books and early starts…

Revision periods are a bit like being a candle burning on both ends.  You tell yourself you gotta work late and fend off sleep as much as you can…then get up unhumanly early to work some more (well I try to anyway). The return to Nottingham was therefore a little sad but optimistic. Home was great, I …
