I’ve just completed my welcome week at university, and despite this only containing about three days of actual interaction with my course, I am drained. I’ve avoided the traditional freshers like the plague, by not living in halls and dodging forking out £40 for a wristband but never the less, it is done. It’s spiked… Continue reading 22/09/17 – Welcome Week
(pre warning this is written without edit, and probably without sense to articulate correctly the message it’s meaning to convey). If anything this is dedicated to the version of myself that never thought she’d be here now. You did it.

New Year’s can be hard, there are all these expectations and pressures around sticking to resolutions and it really gets to… Continue reading New Year’s Resolutions
I realised this morning how much I bloody love the new year, if for nothing else it’s a great excuse to be incredibly sentimental.
