Listing my life

Discoveries I have made this week: 1. The non term-time hopper bus timetable. Do you like waiting? Do you enjoy gnawing hunger in the evenings? Do you enjoy randomly walking around because all Uni shops are closed?  Well you’re in luck! We bring you the non term time hopper bus timetable- now even more inconvenient! …

Define holiday…

Happy New Year everyone!   It has been two weeks since my last blog, as we have had Christmas and New Year on the Wednesdays in between, and the holiday has been MANIC. Christmas is always so busy I find, seeing family and friends and all the cooking and work that has to fit in …

Finding your place…ment

So it’s been a little while since I last blogged – and that’s because it’s been very busy. As the title suggests, I’ve been finding my place in my hospital placement as a Student Dietitian. I suppose it has been quite surreal for me. I’ve wanted to be a Dietitian since I was thirteen so …

Barcelona, Beaches & Buildings

Anyone else been on the family summer holiday yet? If you haven’t,  don’t worry I’m not going to use this blog to brag about going away to Barcelona! In fact last year our family went on a beach holiday to Essex…no joke. So I have pretty much managed to sum up my trip to Spain …

SummerLad

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the ice cream is calling – you’re lying back relaxing for your summer holiday… And I’m blogging.   You may be thinking – what on earth are you doing Sarah? Blogging in the holidays? I thought it had finished! Well sorry to disappoint but I’m here for …

SUN, SEA AND SUSPICIOUS TATTOOS

So I’ve officially finished my degree. It still hasn’t quite sunk in. Those around me congratulate me, but my response seems to be a blank stare followed by an “Oh my gosh, yeah”. I’m sure it will really hit home in a week or two, or at Graduation Ball. Straight after my exam, I finished …

My Easter holiday in pictures

Well, sadly, the Easter holiday is drawing to a close, and it’s been busy, fun, moderately productive and definitely nice to be home. So this post I thought I’d do a picture summary of what I’ve been up to – building on last weeks post. So I went on holiday: To Cornwall…which was actually rather …

We’re all going on an…Easter holiday

Just a short one this week as I’m on holiday in Cornwall and the internet is somewhat limited – photos will be in the next blog! So I’m in Cornwall and it’s rather beautiful, trying and failing to work but enjoying fresh seafood, clotted cream, pasties and fresh sea air. As I am on hospital …

NEWSFLASH: Lecturers are People

In primary school, teachers are like robots. They can be kind of fun, help you learn – but your mind compartmentalises them into the “school” folder, in the way that cars are filed in “roads” and “garages” and flowers in “plants,” “gardens” and “vases” etc.  Tell me I’m not the only one who thinks in …

HOME

I’ve clicked my Ruby slippers, followed the scent –it’s my home Ratty!, told everybody I’m on my way (who gets all three references?) and I am home for Christmas. T minus 6 days and counting.   Home is lovely and altogether too distracting for revision. I find the Christmas holidays so much harder to work …
