• Paper Towers

    Our first week of uni (or what most people call Fresher’s week!) consisted of a project/competition to create the tallest tower out of 100 sheets of A4 and PVA glue and nothing more. It was very interesting to see the results as everyone’s attempts were very different. As we were working in pairs, I worked […]

  • Spanakopita

    I thought I’d post a recipe seeing as I am sure there will be a lot of people just starting to cook for themselves at this time of year! And also because I love this recipe, it’s really easy and I have made it a few times over the summer. INGREDIENTS Fresh spinach (1-2 bags) […]

  • Don’t Go On Shopping Sites When Sleepy!

    I have done this so many times, and do I learn? No! To be honest, sometimes it is a good excuse to buy something I want but that I can’t really afford! The last time I did this was a couple of days ago, when I had had (fairly bad) allergies all day and I […]

  • Welcome!

    Hi everybody! I wanted to do a quick post to say welcome to all the new students at Dundee, and especially to all the new bloggers I am excited to read your posts and good luck with your first year at Dundee Uni! I do recommend that everyone starting (and even people who’ve been here […]

  • Summer Reading

    I thought I’d give some advice to any soon to be architecture students. I am sure that you will be given a list of books from your uni, and it is a really good idea to have a look at at least a couple of these before you start your course. I found that it […]

  • For those of you deciding what to do with your lives…

    It is the middle of the Summer. My oh my it is a lovely one is it not?! So I imagine that most people out there (who’ve just finished high school) will have already made their decisions for what they’re going to do with at least the next year. I hope that you all managed […]

  • Holiday Time!

    I am not currently in Dundee. Why? I am on holiday, and therefore I am spending my time in London, to see the boyfriend. We have just returned from Crete (the same place that we went to last year) which was awesome as well as my first time (excluding cruises) of staying with an all […]

  • Degree Show: Architecture and DJCAD

    Today, I went to look round the degree show properly, as it was a bit of a squeeze on the opening night, with so many people there! Here are some highlights from the architects, which I photographed mainly as inspiration for techniques that I could try in the future, rather than for the design necessarily. […]

  • Comfort Food

    As I mentioned last time, I had a very busy week, working to complete and collate my portfolio to be submitted. We are still waiting to hear whether we passed or not (we find all that out next week). Eeks! Anyway, I have enjoyed some good food over the past wee while, which was partially […]

  • The NeverEnding Work Week

    Well I certainly hope that readers are not too young to know of The NeverEnding Story (to which I reference above). It’s one of those properly awesome 80s films, full of craziness! The point of all this is to illustrate that this week is crazily busy; we submit our portfolios on Wednesday. After Wednesday, I […]
