This house is a home

As mentioned in my previous post, I moved out of my student halls flat and into my own house for the second year of uni. I’m living with Bex still, but also with 4 other boys who we were friends with last year (fun). Currently, only myself, Bex and Sam have moved in, Aidan is…

Thinking of China

Laying with my cat, Nellie, and watching travel vlogs of China. That’s all I’ve been doing today. Once I get my head into something, I’m stuck – and I’m currently stuck on China. The magnificent Asian country has been on my mind for years now and as I enter my 20’s it is more prevalent…

Moving out of my first flat

Wednesday 19th July 2017, 9:19am, I sit here in my disturbingly tidy room in my beloved first home in Sheffield, R3, where I’ve created so many memories with so many lifelong friends. Even though I am the last of the four of us to leave this flat, it still feels like our flat. Once I’ve…

40 University tips from a surviving first year!

As my first year of University draws to a close (thank god), I thought I’d share my top tips from what I’ve learnt as being a newbie Student: Start looking as early as you can. Going on lots of open days and reading up about the variations of courses is the best way that I…

Heights of Abraham, Matlock Bath ~ Derbyshire, England

This weekend, my parents came up from Norwich to visit me in Sheffield and we took the day-trip to Matlock Bath in Derbyshire to visit the Heights of Abraham (which were closed when my parents last came to visit). The guided tours around the underground caverns were amazing!! Our guides turned off all of the…

21 before 21

As I sit here in bed at 3:19pm after oversleeping and missing todays lecture, I had a sort-of epiphany. I was casually scrolling down Facebook when I saw a video montage of this man who’d visited 50 countries at the age of 19. It just made me think, there’s so much out there that I…

Need help revising A2 Psychology?

Whilst stressing over all my bloody A2 exams (that’s the second year of A-Levels…y’know, those important ones that determine whether you get into University), I found some useful resources to revise Psychology on which helped me a lot and will most likely help you too! These websites have either downloadable pre-written notes, breakdowns and/or model…

Stressed Out

Eugh it’s that time of the year again, exams month. I feel like my eyes are burning out of my head and my brain is on fire. I’m scoffing Ben & Jerrys like the world’s going to end and drinking orange juice like it’s going out of fashion. I felt like I had to upload…

We won a free holiday to Corfu, Greece!

We did it! After a few weeks of mayhem buying WAY TOO MANY multi-packs of Walkers crisps and entering codes at midnight, myself and Scott won a free holiday to Corfu! Here’s how it works: Walkers (a UK crisps company) are giving away 20,000 holidays in partnership with last minute.com, there is a code on…

Norwich Eats ~ Chiquito

In the Riverside area of Norwich is Chiquito, the cheap and cheerful Mexican Cantina. After only visiting a few times, I can safely say that it’s one of my fave restaurants around. Following an upgrade to their menu, this ‘Street Food’ tapas style selection was created. Myself and Tara went for mini quesadillas, mini tacos,…

Blacklight Run UK

(iPhone quality pictures guys, sorry!) About a month ago, myself and my friend Ben went to the Blacklight Run went it came to the Norwich Showground. As this was one of my Bucket List things to do, I was all over it- even if it was VERY cold. I will admit, the actual ‘run’ part…

I got into University!

Phew! What a stressful few months I’ve been having! UCAS is one of the most difficult processes I’ve ever had to go through and I’m still in the midst of it- but I’m through the hard bit. Here’s my story. I applied to do BSc Psychology at Sheffield Hallam, De Montfort, Lincoln and Anglia Ruskin….
