Hello bloggers! How are we doing? It feels like a while since I last wrote (I know I say that every blog but it never ceases to amaze me how fast time goes). I’m sat here typing this blog in a mound of books and reading while tackling my second chapter of the dissertation. I’ve Read more

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 Read more
Wanna know the best thing about Cardiff? City Road. Wanna know the worst thing about Cardiff? City Road. You will get fat…and you will like it. Not like “Oh look at my cute little food baby” fat… I’m talking discovering-my-long-lost-twin-and-endeavouring-to-ingest-her-so-now-my-BMI-has-doubled-and-I’m-a-chubba-monster…fat. Excuse the implied cannibalism and let me explain. So Cardiff is pretty multicultural. It’s a Read more
So this week has been eventful to say the least. A friend and I had a trip booked to France for 4 days to train dance with some friends living in Marseille. We got the train down to London, got up ridiculously early in the morning to get to Gatwick. Checked in, boarded the plane, Read more
