• Rotary 2

    Rotary Club of Dundee has been so kind to the University that they invited a few international students over their annual lunch for international students and friends to give them/us a view about the Rotarians’ job and about this particular Dundee Rotary Club’s work worlide. Thanks to the University’s International Service division, I had the […]

  • 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, […]

  • Kimchi

    No, I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth, although given how long it’s been since my last post, you could be forgiven for wondering. As ever, life has been flying by, with its usual diet of classes, panic about my SSC report, writing up case discussions and clerkings, and somewhere in the middle […]

  • Time to Get Stuck In

    I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions. Certainly not the unrealistic kind that appear as promises after too many drinks the night before, and everything is still painfully fuzzy and out of focus. You know the type: “I will never drink like that again/I’m joining the gym tomorrow/this is my last cigarette… ever!” To me, […]

  • Time Bomb

    With our reading week rolling round already (already!!?!) and deadlines looming, I’m once again reminded of the importance of time management.  You’d think in my 5th year of University study, I’d have figured it’s a significant part of student life if you want to keep on top of deadlines – but what can I say?! I […]

  • Flat Hunt 2014

    It is that time of year when everyone is frantically snapping up their favourite places to live for the next academic year. So I thought I would post some advice… TIPS ON LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO LIVE Choose the right flatmates, with the same priorities I wanted to leave the house I’m staying in […]

  • Cultures

    Clearly, there are several (actually that several is countless) different cultures making this world and the people living in it so diverse. One of this – well known – culture that I would like to mention is the Chinese. On the 31st of January, that is today, the year of the Snake, China’s previous year […]
