  • You can’t buy happiness, but you can get a pizza.

    If you’ve read any of this blog my main motivations are pretty clear. If you haven’t already grasped this forgive me for being too subtle. Food. Food makes me so happy. As far as food goes there isn’t much else better than pizza so you can imagine how excited I was to try yet another […]

  • Halloween 2018

    Halloween is one of the most anticipated night for students. In Dundee, DUSA holds their annual Halloween party. This year it’s on a Wednesday.

  • A week in my life at university

  • Reading Week

    I’m lucky as a humanities student that I get a reading week to catch up on any reading or work that I might have got behind on. But I can’t believe it’s already almost over! If you’re unsure what a reading week is, it’s basically a week of little to no classes where you can […]

  • A date at Italian Grill

    There comes a point in life where most of us realise it’s your friends that eventually have your back and it’s the dinner dates with your girlfriends that make the most memorable nights.  Cue Simran, one of my closest (craziest) friends in Dee and my dinner date for Saturday. We decided to head to Dundee’s […]

    The move from home to halls is difficult enough, but most of us take that next step in second year and go onto living in a private let flat, which is a whole different kettle of fish. After living here for about 4 weeks now, I think I can comment on it, even though I […]

    Suffering from caffeine withdrawal? Me too. All. The. Time. However, I am not just your usual coffee addict. I like my daily coffee with a side of hipstery scenery and nice staff. During my last 3 years in Dundee I have found the very best, cutest and most aesthetic places to grab a coffee – […]
