Le Big Mac, Tarantino and the Deep South

Have you seen Pulp Fiction? It’s a Tarantino cult classic that’s hard to forget with its copious amounts of cocaine, guns and bizarrely mundane dialogue throughout (there’s 5 minutes of screen time dedicated to a conversation about foot-rubs…). It’s a dialogue near to the beginning of the film that I wanted to talk about in […]

Mémé’s Tarte au Citron

Mémé’s Tarte au Citron

August has been a month of adjustment for me. I went home to Leicester at the start of the month and suffered from reverse culture shock, a subject which Katie wrote a really great blog post about here. I’d just adjusted to being back in England when I boarded my return flight to France. I’ll […]

Eight words every final year student doubts…until they realise that they’re practically already half way through Term 1. I cannot describe how fast the last four weeks have gone by. I feel like I can now […]

Back to Student Life!

I’m writing this on a Sunday afternoon from the comfort of my brand new student house! I moved back up to Leicester a week ago and, safe to say, everything has been GO GO GO! As ever, unloading my boxes and boxes of clothes, stationary and course books required both of my housemates to lend […]

Life in the Shire- Cows, BBQs and Results

In my opinion, I live in the best Shire in England- Cheshire! Having not been at home since early February, I was very excited to spend time here after my Year Abroad as even though it’s very quiet around these parts, there is no place like home. In-fact, one of the things that I was […]
