Hectic Uni life

Posted on 25 April 2013 by Aimee-Louise

The pass few weeks have been rather hectic. Even my three weeks home were crazily busy. The first week was lovely; I lazed around the house, practiced my instruments (the poor neighbors probably weren’t happy I was home, being a saxophonist makes you a bit of a noisy neighbor :p), reminded myself of how boring

Dreaded Week 7

Posted on 6 December 2012 by Aimee-Louise

At the start of our course we were warned that week seven is always a really bad week. If anything goes wrong it will go wrong in week seven. We thought the lecturer was completely over exaggerating, but we now know that week seven is really that bad. In our introduction lecture we got told

Reading Week
