Revision Tips

Posted on 20 December 2017 by Hope

I know I post something like this pretty much every Semester…BUT it is a good way of reminding myself, and everybody else to do these things. It is very easy to forget very basic stuff when you’re in the last year of your degree. I also like to tell myself I have learnt and grown

To be honest with you all, this is very much going to be a bit of rant. I had the worst experience ever moving into my final year flat a couple of weeks ago. I won’t name the letting agency, but they were awful. The flat itself is great and it’s all fine now, but

Moving In

Posted on 2 August 2017 by Hope

I’m currently preparing to move back to Cardiff at the end of August. This will be my fourth (and hopefully final) time packing the majority of my stuff up and moving it distressingly far away. As I’ve been packing all of my possessions up once more, I’ve been thinking about all of the places I’ve
