Too Much Work!

Can’t… blog… too… much… work! My week is full to the brim with interviews, article reading, application filling, lectures (and seeing a very cheeky chappy, otherwise known as Tiny Tin Bird). I will definitely be back by the weekend though, assuming I haven’t drowned in the masses of random bits of (very important) pieces of …

The Morning of Two Cafes

On Thursday, I didn’t have any lectures in the morning and the roads were clear of snow, so my mum managed to come over for a visit. I met her in town and, of course, we headed straight to our favourite cafe here. This is the one where they use real chocolate in their hot …

Snow Musings

Ah, snow. You either love it or you hate it. The man who gave me a lift back from uni on Friday (and I think I should clarify here that he was a fourth year studying at the uni, I was with my (male) friend, another girl and a male adult who works at the …

Dear Neighbour

Dear Next Door Neighbour, I thought I’d provide you with some feedback about your regular band/solo performances, as I’ve decided that this must be the reason why you play loud enough for us to hear it wherever we are in the house. Lets just say, I think it needs some work. Whilst I¬†occasionally enjoy some …

The Good Samaritan

All of Thursday, all anyone was talking about was the incoming snow. “We’re meant to get 10 inches overnight!”, “I heard some shops are only selling two loaves of bread per person so they don’t run out!”, “I hope we have a snow day so we can spend the whole day having snowball fights and …

Monday Evenings

At the moment, mine and my friends’ timetables are a bit empty. It isn’t usually like this at all and we’re typically in uni quite a lot each day. It just so happens though, that right now we don’t have anything on Mondays. This means, of course, that we wouldn’t see each other for three …

The Best of Both Worlds

Saturday was my mum’s birthday, so naturally I decided to go home to spend the weekend with her. With my alarm set for some ungodly hour known as 7:30am, I was all ready to catch the train and have a nice time at home. Only, at 7:25, I got a text from my mum saying, …

Gods and Warriors

Hello there, how are you all? I’m officially back into the swing of uni life, going to lectures like a pro and ignoring my alarm so I get an extra five minutes in bed. I had a bit of spare time yesterday, so while watching ‘Definitely, Maybe’ (just a generic rom-com), I decided to put …

Just A Catch Up

So, Christmas is officially over. The decorations are all packed up, the tree ready to be taken away and I’m back at uni. It’s always a strange thing coming home from uni or going back after a holiday. It’s like I’ve got two completely separate lives and I’m switching between them. Both have good things …

An Impromptu Visit

Yesterday, my mum and I woke up at the crack of dawn (actually, it was before dawn – we woke at about quarter to six and the sun didn’t rise for another two hours! Quite a shock to my system, that was!) to go on an impromptu visit to see Heather. Well, it was impromptu …
