Mid-life crisis

Posted on 18 February 2015 by Jess

Hello and welcome back to the blog! Things have been “ticking” over here at my end (a horribly middle-aged phrase) which brings me to the sad realisation that 3rd year does turn you slightly middle aged. My days largely consist of the same old routine: lectures, gym, library & eating. Gone are the days of

Sweet as bro!

Kia Ora! (hello in Maori) and welcome back to my somewhat neglected blog…I’ve been so busy over here I’ve genuinely found it hard to find a spare couple of hours to update you all on my adventures so far. Mainly because I’ve been living in one of the most beautiful parts of the world- exhibit

So I’m currently writing this 11,842 miles across the globe from Cardiff. Gives me butterflies in my stomach when i think of it like that! Apart from going a few miles further south, I couldn’t really be farther from home. After travelling for 46 hours through countless timezones, I finally made it to my new
