• Fresher’s Week – Part 2

    Hey there!  Can you believe Fresher’s week is over? My crazy week consisted of – Partying (of course) Attending introduction lectures and classes Family visits Hosting a dinner party Netflix I have really enjoyed the start to my University career as I have met lots of fabulous people. A greatly anticipated part of Freshers/introduction week […]

  • Freshers Week – Part 1

    Hey there! It is already halfway through Freshers week! As a fresher I must say it has been an amazing week so far. I have been fortunate enough to meet so many lovely people through – my course, Christian Union and general socialising. In between binging on Netflix whilst in my flat and skyping my […]

  • Back for a short writing

    I thought I would just drop some line as I missed a few weeks out on blogging. I’ve been a bit busy lately, doing studies and revision, working etc. and have not got too much time to spend with the blog. My first exam is coming up in two and a half hours, so I’ve […]

  • Comics Day Out

    It may be the busiest time of the academic year as far as deadlines are concerned – but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun while learning, right?! Us Comics Studies MLitt-ers certainly like to think that’s the case anyway, and on Monday we took a class trip to Glasgow where we visited Hope Street […]

  • Assessments everywhere you look

    Like last semester, this one has been flying by. But whilst the first semester held the promise of Christmas, semester 2 brings an onslaught of assignments and the dread of exams. It’s hard to believe that we only have 3 weeks more of classes (plus the mysterious ISS week) before our teaching for this year […]

  • Thanks for The Coffee

    Adina yawned at me the other morning, and questioned why our entire first batch of deadlines occurred within the space of two weeks. Clutching a coffee and feeling equally deprived of sleep; I saw that she had a valid point. For weeks we have had only lectures, tutorials, and the expected abundance of reading. Now, […]

  • Plunge into studies

    This semester’s modules will be filled with mathematics and analysis, which means that I will finally learn properly (hopefully) these higher mathematic equations and quartiles that we need for the modules. Seriously, it’s just amazing how much we can learn just with attending some lectures, and then making more effort at home to learn what […]

  • Right Back At It Again

    One week in, and the calm of Christmas and excitement of Hogmanay is already a distant blurry memory! We’ve only been back in classes one week and I have already handed in coursework – no rest for the wicked has become my Master’s catchphrase!   I’m really looking forward to this semester though – despite the […]

  • Respiratory has been and gone…

    I’m not quite sure how the last month managed to pass by without a post, certainly I had plenty of them rolling around in my head, and yet between lectures, classes and a couple very busy weekends with the choir, I find that the term has finished and the first week of vacation is almost […]

  • Figuring It All Out

    My name is Anna.  I’m new to this blog.  I’m a part-time MFA Art and Humanities student and mum who commutes from Edinburgh, so I have quite a different experience to most other students on campus. It’s a bit like living a double life: I hop on the train to Dundee for classes twice a week […]
