Happy Holidays and Hello 2015

December, the month of festivities! Christmas meals, Christmas drinks, Christmas snacks, Christmas films, the list goes on… For me, December began in an incredibly stressful fashion. 8th December marked the deadline for a politics essay I had been slaving over for weeks. I find it really difficult to work at the best of times, so […]

It’s Not All About The Work

University. Three or more years of essays, exams, presentations, all nighters in the library and exam-related stress. There’s no denying that studying at university is difficult. Yes, it’s stressful.
