The Sun Has Got His Hat On (At Last)

Hip hip hip hooraaaaaaaaaaaay!!! The sun has FINALLY decided to come out and give us a few days of summer weather. I’ve been so fed up of the dark, rainy, dreary days we’ve been having and I think everyone else has too, so it’s cheered me up no end to see a bright blue sky …

How to Survive a Year in University Accommodation

On Friday, I finished packing up my room completely and came home. It felt very odd leaving and thinking that I’d never be coming back to my room, that I’d never live on the campus again and that every day at university would now start with a bus ride. It’s amazing how much stuff you …
