#ShowOff16

Amidst dissertation work, essay writing and everything else that characterises final year of uni, I’m helping out with this year’s English Showcase. Extra responsibility in my busiest year? I know. But it’s actually helping with my sanity a bit, since I’m forced to interact with others instead of spending the whole day talking to books …

The Summer Job

Hello dear readers, I am blogging from Kettering! Haven’t heard of it? Well I forgive you because neither did most of my friends.. To give you an idea; it is in the borough of Northamptonshire and is between Nottingham and London, about an hour to both cities. The reason I am here is because I am on …

All Grown Up? Not quite..

I am currently in Norwich. No it’s not what you may think, this isn’t a trip to enjoy the seaside and some fish and chips. Though would you blame me if I slipped some of that in during my down time? Anyway, back to my point, this is largely a business trip. Well.. Kinda. I say …

HMS Awesome

This week, my soundtrack would have been flight of the bumblebee. It has been crazy busy. This has been good from a distraction-y point of view but less from a quality of life-y angle. Oh well. Case in point: my eye. There were some bright points though! My friend who studied musical theatre in London was …

The things we turn to…

Knock Knock? Who’s there? Eight Eight who? Don’t you eight it when your bus doesn’t come, you get rained on and everything gets a lot more real. In fact, you love and hate it. The ward adrenaline is immense, the rush intense, medic handwriting doesn’t make sense…. By the way it’s week eight of placement. …

A weekend in the ‘sun’

So I went on holiday this weekend. Shanghai? Sri Lanka? Sharm El Sheikh? Actually Sheffield. Oh yeah, be jealous. It was lovely actually. I stayed with my long-lost housemate Marilyn who is also on placement and we painted the town red. If by that you mean we chatted loads and went round the high street …
