  • Semester 2 Week 1 Experience

    Semester 2 is well underway now, so I thought I would share my week 1 experience. This semester, I’ve so far not left my family home! I don’t have any plans to move back to Dundee until the shops reopen, if that happens before this semester ends. I work part-time in retail in Dundee and […]

  • An Abstract Conversation about Mental Health

    Mental health. Now that we’ve all been plunged into another lockdown, it’s being mentioned a lot. Whether it be TV campaigns encouraging you to reach out to each other, or your tutors reminding you to look after yourselves, it’s impossible to avoid. So I wanted to take this opportunity to talk about mental health in […]

  • Bye 2020

    New year, a new chance at a better year? After a very unusual 2020, for many 2021 might seem like a chance to do all the things we could not this year. But really, looking back, to me 2020 was one of my favourite years yet. Either way, I still hope you have at least some […]

  • Goodbye 2020 – A letter to the year that changed it all

    Dear 2020,  You were a pain. Plain and simple. You gave me mixed feelings since the moment you came in. I had hopes you’d bring much needed change in my life; and you did, just not the kind I was expecting.  You took two really important people away from me, and now it’s your own […]

  • Studying Architecture – my Favourite Projects so far

    Is this just a way to shamelessly promote my work? Maybe. But if you’re thinking of studying architecture, or if you’ve already started studying it, this could give you a clue as to what might be to come. Year 1 – Shelter Space, Form and Structure For this project, we had to design a shelter […]

  • Resitting a Year – Semester 1

    This year I’m resitting 3rd-year architecture, which obviously wasn’t something I had planned to happen. When I found out I’d failed last year I was understandably devastated, but now it’s almost the end of the first semester, I can’t help but feel like maybe there are more good things to come out of it than […]

  • My Journey Learning the Guitar: plus hints & tips!

  • Loneliness

    When I moved to Dundee, like many people, it was the first time I’d been truly alone in my entire life. I was used to having my family there, and I’d been in the same friendship group since nursery. But did the thought of being alone scare me? Nope. I was excited. I’ve always been […]
