Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward

  This is my favourite quotation; it was said by Victor Kiam, who was an American entrepreneur and also owned the New England Patriots at one point. The quotation just resonated with me the first time I came across it.   There have been many times in my life where I have both metaphorically and physically fallen on […]

What do students eat??

  Students are an exceptional species of human. We have voluntarily left the comfort of home-cooked meals only to find ourselves fighting for survival. We must learn to cook our own meals, and this means more than just pasta, because everyone knows by now that pasta can get really old, really quickly. Plus, you can only order Domino’s so […]

My First New Year’s Resolution

  2016 has been a crazy year, to say the least. I’m finally studying a subject that I genuinely enjoy studying, I’ve met people who I’m absolutely grateful to have in my life, and I can feel myself changing in ways I’m really happy about.   Whenever January 1st comes around I never make a New […]

Let’s talk about anxiety

  Now that term one of this year is over, I’ve been reflecting on this past term and I can confidently say that it has been one of the hardest few months of my life (side note: this is my fifth year of uni, so that’s saying something! Yeah, yeah, I know I’m old, blah blah blah). […]

The Puzzle of Motivation

  Motivation is pretty slippery and difficult to hold on to. The Oxford Dictionary defines ‘motivation’ as the ‘desire or willingness to do something; enthusiasm’. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? It’s more than just simply having a desire or willingness and being enthusiastic about something; you truly have to have an impassioned desire or an intense willingness or fervent enthusiasm!!!!! to actually get something […]

Feeling overwhelmed? Don’t worry – so is everyone else

  It’s that time of year. It’s officially November. It is time to start celebrating Christmas.   That’s right, whoever told you there’s only 12 days of Christmas lied to you, because there are, in fact, 55 days of Christmas (Hi, Zoe & Connagh).   Just kidding! Sort of.   Yes, that’s right, I am one of […]

How I keep fit and stay healthy at uni, Pt. II

How I keep fit and stay healthy at uni, Pt. II

  My last post was about how I stay healthy and fit at uni (as much as possible); I’ve split up the post so that it’s not a gigantic one (because clearly, I have a lot to say on the subject), so let’s get right into it!   I think we can all agree that cravings are […]

How I keep fit and stay healthy at uni, Pt. I

  For this week and next week’s blog posts, I’ve decided to write about how I stay as healthy and fit as possible at uni, which is certainly an achievement to celebrate.   I’m currently sitting in my (hypothermic) room, wrapped up in my big, wool blanket scarf with two lit candles on the right side of […]
