I am so incredibly heartbroken and I can’t tape it down to anything other than me failing myself at the same time as the person I admire the most completely failing me. I am so alone and I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to be here. I don’t. I will but I … More

GAMSAT

Hey ya’ll, It’s been a hot while. It’s currently uni break and I’m spending it working and studying for the GAMSAT in September. In order to improve my essay section (/motivate me to write essays) I thought I would type them up here. I know I should be handwriting them, but perhaps (*ahem* perhaps not) … More GAMSAT

But probably also from my mum standing … More “I’m on a rollercoaster that only goes up, my friends”. Great tween quote. You’re welcome.

Rolemodels

I can’t count the number of people I look up to and/or consider rolemodels. Brian May, Roger Taylor, John Deacon, Freddie Mercury… 20 words in and I’m already cracking Queen references. But no, although these guys do inspire me, so do the likes of Tim Ferris, Jenna Mourey, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, Tim Minchin, Zoe Foster, … More Rolemodels

#housematelyf

This week we decided to kick our housemate out. A fairly hard thing to do seeing as he is our friend, someone we’ve known for over 7 years, and will be going to uni with us for the next 4 years. But, it was a necessary evil. For me, at least. My (ex) housemate’s presence … More #housematelyf
