In my 12 months of absence from the blogosphere (wow), I traveled a fair few miles on my holidays. One of the places I visited, which I raved immensely about in previous posts linked here and here, was New York City. The Big Apple, unsurprisingly, did not disappoint. This is a place I have dreamed of visiting for YEARS. Buildings and views I had seen … Continue reading The Big Apple
Starting Uni is terrifying. I’m not going to sugar-coat it, not right now. One of the things that made it all the more terrifying, for me, was being a Christian. Straight away, you’re out clubbing with people you don’t know, or have known for a maximum of a few hours. They want you to drink, play games, talk about sex, kiss strangers in clubs. It’s … Continue reading Being a Student of God
Late nights, early mornings. Loud noises, music, people talking, shouting, singing. Alcohol, and lots of it. Free stuff everywhere. New faces, new faces, more new faces.

With a delayed flight, extreme turbulence and a mix-up with the car rental company meaning they had to make do with a mini for the rest of the week, they … Continue reading Trip Notes // Switzerland
Stress, anxiety, illness, memory loss and general discontent. Apparently this is what the education system wants for its students today. Never mind 12 months of revision and preparation; when you’re sat in an echoing exam hall on the verge of a mental breakdown with a sweaty pencil in your hand, all that hard earned knowledge is irrelevant. It’s about how fast you can write. … Continue reading My Thoughts on Exams
The cosy bubble of the Christmas holidays has finally popped and the start of term has hit me like a rock. I’m sure it didn’t help being a tad hung over on the first day back, but that’s another story to tell. The start of a new year has got me thinking. By now you all know I just want to travel, be it that simple, and today I … Continue reading 2016 – A Year of Adventures Awaits
