The Aftermath

On Friday, one of the girls from my block had her birthday and she decided to throw a party. A big one. Two of the floors from my block were invited (each floor has 16 people), along with all of her friends from her course and from her home. They decided that because our kitchen …

Pesto Pasta Salad

Last week when I was at home, I did the Tesco shop with my mum and was really looking forward to getting one of the pesto pasta salads as a treat for lunch, but when we got there it was the ONLY salad pot thingy that they didn’t have in stock. Why does that always …

Avengers Assemble

Last night, I went out with my friends for an Indian and to see the new Avengers Assemble film. I’ll say now that this really isn’t the kind of film that I would usually go and see. I don’t go to the cinema very often and when I do it’s usually for a rom-com or …

Emergency Chocolate

So, I’m back at uni. Back to the revision, back to the power naps and back to the washing up. But I was more prepared to come back this time and I’m ready to work. I’m also prepared for the down times and revision breaks – I tell you, one thing the Easter holidays are …

Friends, Food and Cocktails

On Saturday, it was my friend Emma’s birthday and yesterday we met up to go for an Indian to celebrate. This meant that yesterday I also had to go running round the shops in search of a present (because I’m really organised and buy all my presents at least a week before, not). I knew …

The R Word

Oooh, I hate fake holidays. You know the type. Where you’re meant to be on a holiday from school/uni/work, but you’re still expected to do work, or more specifically in my case, revise. That’s what I’m having at the moment, a fake holiday. And I’m protesting. Against my will. Because even if I want to …
