  • Covid Valentine’s

    I can’t believe it’s already almost Valentine’s Day! I know a lot of people don’t do anything special for Valentine’s Day and I’ve heard plenty of complaints that it’s just another capitalist trick – BUT I think this year, more than ever, we should enjoy it however we can! This blog post will include some […]

  • How I’m Staying Motivated and Positive During Lockdown

    So here we are again, another Lockdown. Feels like we’ve been here before, doesn’t it? Except this time seems much harder.

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • How to spend Christmas alone

    With most of my friends starting to go home now, I am reminded of my lack of fixed plans for the holidays. Although I haven’t been back home in a year, needing to stay in Dundee until the semester ends, expensive flights requiring at least one stop-off in an additional country, my skiing job being […]

  • 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 […]
