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
I quit my job today. It’s been 8 months, and although I had fun I have decided it’s time for me to put down my tray and notepad, and focus a little more on school work (because it’s not like this is an important year or anything). This post will probably resonate with anyone who works in catering or even customer service in general. It lists … Continue reading What I Learned From Waitressing
I was born with a condition. It causes me to dream endlessly of travelling to places I want so badly to see and explore. It is called wanderlust. I have been lucky enough to be able to exert this passion for travelling by exploring various countries in Europe.

Maybe it was because of family issues which arose near the time of my usual Christmas list writing window. Or maybe it was because I have finally grown out of this childlike annual tradition… …Ha! Nope, not a … Continue reading The Christmas List
Readers! The festive season is upon us and I currently feel utterly engulfed by Christmassy inspo. As of today, school is out. This means I have three weeks to sit and eat copious amounts of chocolate, think about school work, bingewatch my favourite TV shows and become a breathing piece of furniture in my living room. That’s a lie… I do other things as well, I don’t just become a … Continue reading Let the Festivities Begin!
I have an announcement to make! My blog now has its very own Instagram account, go and like it here! I will regularly update when I put up a new post and maybe stick some behind the scenes shots on there too! In light of all this, I began searching through my phone photos and found a couple of instagrammable shots which I never got round to posting. … Continue reading Instagrammable
