Golfer’s Block

There’s no denying. I have the inescapable ‘Writer’s block’. After 2 years for the first time, I’ve spent the best part of two weeks, stroking my stubble and tapping on my chin to no avail. I’ve been trying to write a piece to congratulate the many graduates from Nottingham this year, amongst whom are some …

How to: Summer Step 2

First of all huge apologies, twas the night before I was ready to blog and the internet contract ran out at the house and I was very busy packing, socialising and surviving without the internet (it’s a dark and scary place) but now I’m home, with a healthy 3 bars of internet and so that …

How to: Summer Step 1

Two weeks left in Nottingham. Nothing to do but sleep, eat and ‘drink’ our way through to results day. So what is there to do? More importantly as I can show you pictures, what have I been up to? After a few weeks in the confines of the library or bedroom glued to books it’s …

Let me explain myself

Everyone has a style. Unfortunately my style is a little bit unorthodox and so is therefore shunned by everyone I’ve tried to introduce to it. Over the last 6 years, GCSE’s, A-Levels and now University exams my revision skills have been honed, from starting out as a meticulous note maker, perfectly copying the textbook into …

Motivation, wherefore art thou!

But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the summer, and Exams is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and come now at once, For I am already sick and pale with grief. For revision is not happening, and in its place I find procrastination, a much easier gift to thee. It has been …

Que sera, sera!

After arriving home on Saturday after a manic day of late night coursework and even later last minute packing I crawled into my bed and set my alarm for 5:30am. It was painful to see 5 hours 27 minutes flash up on the screen, as my phone likes to torment me with how little sleep …

Time For Change

This last week just past was the BioSoc AGM. Where a new committee is elected for the next year. It was time for me to relinquish my role as treasurer and hand on the financial reins to another, young, fresh faced charge. Very sad times indeed, if it wasn’t for the fact I was running …

The Selfie

In the last few years the selfie has developed from a joke to an actual thing. Not a day goes by where millions of photos aren’t taken by merry teenagers and adults a like, pointing their cameras at themselves. More recently the power of the selfie has done incredible things. The ¬†Ellen DeGeneres Oscar selfie …

Having a ball

Freshers year and termly Hall Balls are sadly far behind me, so when the Science Ball came swinging around, an event I missed in first year, I cleared my schedule and began to get very excited. It’s nice to climb out of your usual clothes, the jeans, the chinos, the hoodies and jumpers and don …
