Change is Good!

Change is Good!

I am very much a person who likes things the way they are. I almost didn’t come to university because of it. Even when I came to university, I quickly found a routine and I haven’t changed it up in three years! I’ve almost finished […]

A Day in the Life

A Day in the Life

I want to start off by saying happy Easter holidays! I don’t know about you, but I really need these two weeks off! I have had a mental few weeks full of interviews and the deadline for my dissertation! However, now my interviews are done, […]

Covid-19 Two Years Later…

Covid-19 Two Years Later…

So, two years ago, we were at the beginning of lockdown! I can’t work out if I feel like it’s been ages or not. On one hand, it feels like lockdown was a whole lifetime ago, but on the other hand it feels like these […]

Happy Reading Week

Happy Reading Week

Today is the first day of Reading Week and let’s be honest, not many of us will be doing much reading… well, academic reading! I don’t know about you, but reading is actually a major hobby of mine. I find it really calming to get […]

Why we should be going round in circles

I have recently joined a scheme called GLIDE. It was just another of those email invites and I had clicked the accept button without giving it a lot of thought. (No, that isn’t quite fair. The email was from Maddie Booth, and I thought anything […]

Labels: the good, the bad and the ugly

Labels: the good, the bad and the ugly

I hate labels with a vengeance. Why do people have to be categorized and put into boxes? We are all individuals with unique qualities. One size certainly does not fit all. I am who I am, not a clone, lookalike or doppelganger. Call me by […]

‘New Year, New You’

‘New Year, New You’

I entered an Instagram competition last week. You know, one of those ones that you post something on your story, and it counts as an entry. My hairdresser was doing it along with a handful of other small businesses in the area. You could win […]

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

I don’t know about all of you, but January is a crazy busy month for me. Loads of deadlines and things to do! After a few calm, relaxing weeks at Christmas, it feels like my life has gone from zero to one hundred. I’m not […]
