Adulting Isn’t My Thing

So, it’s been a busy start to second term for me: changing a module, signing up to lacrosse, going to Guildford for the night out, getting back into reading, drinking far too much again. Yup. Second term feels oddly like the start of first!

I’ve started cooking again – finally! I think there was a whole week that I didn’t even venture into the kitchen… it’s bad, I know.

That Thing We Call Consent

This is a pretty tricky issue to talk about but I’m going to put my thoughts into words as best I can and you are welcome to your opinions, you can even post comments telling me I’m wrong, because that’s perfectly ok.

Let’s Make A Change

In response to Morphing

I’m going a little off brief here but I’m sure we can all be mature adults and deal with that.

Goodbye Starman

In response to Ripped Into the Headline

The news that David Bowie had died over the weekend ripped into my soul. He was a legend, a musician that I was not old enough to like when he was performing but in recent years I found his music and let his voice wrap me in its beauty and show me the world with new eyes.

David Bowie was my musical hero and now he is gone.

It’s strange feeling the loss of a man that you never met, a man who’s voice was the only thing you ever really had of him. The world has lost David Bowie, and we, his fans, have lost a part of ourselves that was never really ours, just a gift from this wonderful man.

All I Want Is…

In response to Keeping up with the Jones’

‘Tell us about the one luxury item you wish you could afford, in as much detail as you can. Paint a picture for us.’

I’d love to say that I don’t want any luxury items, just give me world peace, a lifetime to happiness, a job I love. But that’s not entirely true, sure, I’d love all of those things, but we live in a consumer based society and I am a daughter of materialistic age.

So, what I’d really like would be a house.

Ok, not exactly a luxury in 21st century England for most people, but hear me out.

Student Struggles

In response to Sink or Swim

Naturally this post is about university. But it’s not about ‘that crazy night during freshers….’ or ‘that essay that is NEVER getting done’.

It’s about waking up at 4am and wondering where you are because the bed is too small.

It’s about forgetting which path takes you to your house in the student village.

It’s about wondering if any of the people you meet will become your friends or if they’re just going to be people you smile at across the seminar room.
