AUSTRALIA 2017

AUSTRALIA 2017

I put together this video (first time editing on iMovie and it’s filmed on my iPhone so, please, forgive the quality!) of our trip to Australia. It was intended just as a way to look back on the trip ourselves, but I thought I’d pop […]

now what?

now what?

I’m officially a graduate! On July 13th, I graduated from the London School of Economics and Political Science with a First Class Honours in International Relations and History, which blows my mind when I think back to Sixth Form where I was genuinely considering turning […]

we need to talk about skinny shaming

we need to talk about skinny shaming

I’m fed up. Fed up with being called anorexic, of being told to eat more, of having my health questioned and of hearing friends’ mums and family members ask, ‘Gosh you’re thin, you are eating, aren’t you?’ In a society where we are increasingly accepting […]

In June of this year my friends and I took a three day trip to Copenhagen, partly to see Little Mix and The Vamps, and partly to celebrate the end of exams and having finished university for good. The people were lovely and the scenery […]

it’s that time of year…

it’s that time of year…

  New Year’s resolutions are about as controversial as Marmite. Whilst I love Marmite, overall I’m mostly pretty disdainful of the idea of New Year’s resolutions, of the whole concept of having to wait to ring in a new year to do something to better […]

how many more rapists and racists will we protect before something changes?

In the locker room following football training, John R.K. Howard, Tanner Ward and a third 16-year-old boy lured their mentally disabled, black teammate into […]

why (i think) more people aren’t vegetarian

Lack of connection. A total lack of connection is the reason that more people don’t make the change to a meat and fish free diet – we, as humans, just don’t make the link between our food and what it once was. We don’t think about […]

UNIVERSITY – the how to’s, the do’s and the don’ts (Part 2)

UNIVERSITY – the how to’s, the do’s and the don’ts (Part 2)

As promised, this part 2 post is a follow on from the one I posted previously, which effectively covered the process of finding and applying to a university. Part 2 will entail as much useful information as I can scramble together regarding the process of […]
