I had intentions of gaining some valuable work experience or earning some money over the summer; neither came to fruition but I did have a summer to remember! Travelling across 9 countries in Europe I could have mentioned any number of stories or anecdotes from along the way but in reality one day stands out

Getting back into the swing of things

Posted on 16 October 2012 by Freya

So when I last wrote to you all, I was in a state of illness, exhaustion and general wipe out. This week, however, is much much better. Right now we’re in academic week 3 which means the hype of freshers week is over, lectures properly start, seminars properly start, and unfortunately, the work properly starts too. Now

Posted on 14 October 2012 by Aimee-Louise

Hi everyone, this week was rather eventful. It started when I walked into the kitchen and Jet (my new flat mate) said the oven wasn’t working. So I of course tried to turn it on and nothing happened.  I think in the end 6 of us in our flat tried to work out why the

Familiar Fresher's Flu

Posted on 5 October 2012 by Freya

So I’m sitting down to write this drinking a cup of hot lemon and honey tea, wrapped in a blanket and kind of wishing I was asleep. What happened to me you must wonder? Well, the last 7 days have been my last ever Fresher’s week so I have done my best to soak up every minute of it!

Kitchen party!

Posted on 5 October 2012 by Matthew

Hello all. Last night, I had a surprise flat party in my flat, with everyone congregating in our kitchen. There wasn’t as many people as last time, maybe about 15-16 total. At the beginning, it was me, Rhys, and 2 of Rhys’s mates. It was great fun, we played a few card games, and I

Freshers!!!!!!!!

Posted on 2 October 2012 by Aimee-Louise

Freshers was amazing! During freshers we mainly went to the student union, but on our first night, we went to tiger tiger in town. This was probably one of the best nights. When we got back, we decided to play twister. I now know that drunk twister is never a good idea!! It seemed like

Meet the Flatmates

Posted on 2 October 2012 by Aarifa

It’s crazy how the independence just hits you like a punch in the face. One minute you’re snuggled up on the sofa watching Toy Story 3 with your mum, crying when Andy leaves his toys behind and goes to college; and the next…its like BOOM. You’re in college!
