Reading Week!

Reading Week!

This week has been a busy one. Working full-time, being a full-time student and still trying to remain somewhat fit, healthy and social has proved a little much so I am forever grateful for the timing of our reading week! Work has been mental so I’ve […]

Life as a mature student

Life as a mature student

FE Graduation

FE Graduation

Graduation is a fairly American tradition that the UK has adopted and although this occasion wasn’t a cap and gown affair for graduating from college, it was fairly formal. I’ve been to a fair few graduations before as both my sister and dad have done some […]
