A non-drinker in a drinking world

  Before I came to England, I knew the drinking culture was going to be a big thing. When I actually gotΒ to England, I realised drinking culture wasΒ a big thing. I was shocked at how much people were drinking, and I thought to myself, ‘well, they say if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em’… and […]

Things I like to do in Leicester

  As a student, it’s extremely important to plan to relax and spend time with people. It’s easy to isolate yourself so you can get things done, and as productive as that may be academically, that doesn’t do well for your personal wellbeing. So, here are some things I like to do to relax!   […]
