Chocolate and Revision

Chocolate and Revision

Just a quick one of something I found quite amusing during the revision for my final exams. Nourish, the shop in the Students’ Union decided to sell three creme eggs for a pound, which was a bargain I was not prepared to miss! Although it did seem like they were taking advantage of my vulnerable […]

Virtual Clear Out and Dunbar’s Number…

Virtual Clear Out and Dunbar’s Number…

I like to run a tidy ship, both physically and virtually! I find it as, if not more, relaxing to de-frag my hard drive and sort out my dropbox files as I do to give my room a good tidy. But this isn’t just limited to sweeping the rubbish off my desktop periodically, no no, […]

My house's contents after I'm done tidying!

New Year Clear Out!

I’m the kind of person who likes to clear things away and tidy up all year round, but especially so considering the New Year is now with us. There’s something really satisfying about having a really big clear out, re-purposing space that was filled will clutter, out with the old and in with the new […]

Yet More Traditions

Yet More Traditions

Thinking about my Christmas traditions made me think about another little ritual I do. I have a money jar, a bit of a throw-back to having a money box I suppose, that automatically tallies my the money I collect in it. Over the year, I put all the coins below 50p in it, as men’s […]

Christmas Traditions

Christmas Traditions

Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a great Christmas! One of the things I’ve really enjoyed at University is getting to know everyone’s different quirks, charms and traditions – which become really apparent around the holidays 🙂 For example, my brother met someone at University who had Christmas Dinner on Christmas eve, so they didn’t […]

How to Organise a National Conference…

Although it takes a lot of things to organise any event, a national conference, unsuprisingly, takes a lot of hard work by a whole group of individuals. I got involved with this research group looking into staff/student collaboration at the end of last year. I jumped at the opportunity, as like almost everyone else I […]

Working as Partners Conference

Working as Partners Conference

You can do many things at university. One of the opportunities that I took up at the start of the term was to help organise a national conference on student-staff partnership. After months of hard work, that conference took place this week! It was really satisfying to see all our hard work turn into a […]

Ultimate Frisbee 2…

Apologies for the small hiatus! I’ll be catching up on some of my experiences double time in the next fortnight or so now that I’ve got a bit of time to share them with you.   Ok, so I left you with a bit of a teaser about Ultimate Frisbee. But what’s it all about […]

Ultimate Frisbee…

This post is long overdue! I’ve said from the get-go that I am a ‘keen’ frisbee player, and yet I’ve not told you anything about it! I thought I’d do something different to your standard football and rugby and having never seen ultimate frisbee before figured it would be an awesome thing to try!  And […]

Much as the falling of the leaves signal Autumn, Zane Lowe signals the start of hard work at University

Tips for Freshers 3…

Sadly, Fresh Fair is over. Everyone is settled in, has a new group of best friends and is most likely nursing an injury/headache/hangover from the big closing party last night! Sadly, it is also now when the real work begins: Not only can you no longer use the excuse “IT’S FRESHERS” to get out of […]
