Last week during the mini heatwave, we decided to go for a walk to Victoria Park. Since coming on the initial open day at the University of Leicester I’ve always thought it was lovely to have a campus in such close proximity to nature. It reminded me of home.
I took my laptop and we watched a bit of Netflix and also got some chips from Chi in Charles Wilson and just chilled for a little while, after lectures. It was so nice to have a break from the cold and wet weather.
But as a geography student it is quite worrying to think that this time last year we had the Beast from the East and now, we are seeing the highest temperatures ever recorded in February in the UK. I think the nice weather was just a small warning as to the damage that is happening to planet right now. The warm weather last week has caused animals to falsely come out of hibernation and now temperatures have dropped again they will likely starve. Flowers have began to bloom that shouldn’t until the end of March which just shows that whole ecosystems are being turned on their heads. It just goes to show that sometimes something that looks good on the surface can actually be something terrible.
Anyway it isn’t all doom and gloom, I took a little vlog that day so please check it out below!
