When I’m not at university in Portsmouth, I live in this scarily idyllic town in Essex. It’s the sort of place where people still get their milk delivered, locking your bike is a waste of time, the train station has one platform and hanging baskets, and it could well be a serial killer story backdrop. It’s […]

21 BEFORE 21

There is a moth and another questionable creature buzzing around my room,  harassing me. Do I deserve this kind of torment at my age? Because OH YEAH, it’s my 21st birthday, as of about 29 minutes ago. I have just returned to you, and to Ol’ Blighty after a long weekend in my favourite place […]

21 Things To Expect From Living in Uni Halls

Yeah so, I didn’t have a suitable header image for this post, so I just went with a cute one of Portsmouth, from a cute day when the sun was actually shining.

Alternative Summer Playlist

As I am writing this, I’m flicking through the music channels on Sky and it just firmly proves how much you NEED this list in your life.

15 Things I Miss About My Pre-Uni Life

So, as you may already be aware of, I don’t like conventions. I don’t do things in the normal order, and that’s not me being painfully indie or a convention-opression-fighting feminist, it’s just how I’ve done things.

18 Things They Don’t Tell You About Long Distance Friendships

It’s one of life’s cruel jokes when someone who is so meant to be a part of your life is so far away and more people should be insanely jealous of your incredible-life-long-your-children-will-call-me-auntie-friendship and people just need to know: 1.The audio-visual problems of  skype become the bane of your existence 2.Those weird alien people who […]

Thank F*ck Thats Over

This is potentially my most unpopular opinion: I strongly dislike Christmas. It has only just been knocked down a peg from hatred because this year I didn’t actually see my mother (except when she turned up at my door and I just turned around, but we won’t talk about that.) I think I stand out […]
