#Throwback

Sitting in the library today I saw many prospective students and parents looking lost around campus for the UCAS visit days. This made me realize, around 3 years ago in February was the first time I came to this university for the very same reason. On that day (as cheesy as it sounds) I did …

A White Christmas (kinda)

It’s been two weeks since Christmas holidays have started but I have only spent 3 days in Nottingham. What have I been up to you might ask? Well for starters the Sunday after term ended I headed down to London just as an escape from Nottingham. As much as I love this little city I …

An Unusual Christmas

  This year will be the first Christmas I’ve spent away from home and my parents. It’s not all bad though because I at least have my sister and I still get to spend time with family. I guess it’s quite nice to know that thousands of miles away from home there is still nothing quite …

Today Is Not My Day

I’m a pretty stress-free person. Deadlines approaching? I’ll get my work done two days before. Bad hair day? I’ll just wear a hat. Oh, you broke my good China? “It’s fine; replace it in your own time”. (I don’t own any China, but you get the jist.) But nothing prepared me for today! The day …

A Picture of Freedom

Retaining the will to live

It’s a feeling I’m sure you’re becoming all too familiar with this week, the will to live slowly seeping through your fingers with every page of text you read, every sentence you write.  Take heed guys, there is an end! Apparently. If you find it let me know. Not going to lie, this week hasn’t …

So This Is Christmas

A time for all to find their inner child My body clock decided it was Christmas Day at 6am this morning; by 7am I was bouncing up and down the corridor with my youngest brother, racing down the stairs to sort the stack of presents (which has been accumulating under the tree for the past …

The weather outside is frightful…let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Seriously?

Hello people! Have you looked outside your window? Yeap, I know. I thought it was spring 😛 It began very early in the morning and got progressively worse. It hasn’t stopped since. I tried to upload a short video clip but unfortunately, it didn’t work. Oh well, I guess pictures will do..   Apparently, we’re …

Beware Reverse Culture Shock

Hey all, So yes, the winter freeze of the UK has finally hit – which saw endless snowfall on Saturday, and seems be threatening again this evening – eeeek! I got a beautiful snap of the snowflakes from my skylight window… But I must admit that the cold weather, while beautiful, does make me hark …
