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 Read more
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 Read more
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 Read more

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! Read more
So after weeks of excitement, counting down the days until I move to Cardiff, it was finally time. The car was packed to the point where we could fit nothing else in, all that was left was the 5 hour drive to Cardiff. The journey seemed to take for ever, but at last we arrived Read more
