Skye-driving

The first thing I did when I found out that I’ll be moving to Dundee was to make a list of all the places I could visit nearby. Scottish Highlands were one of them; right near the very top! This is my experience of travelling around the Isle of Skye over a weekend, and some things I’d do differently when I plan my next trip!   The Party: First of all, you’d need to decide who you want to go with. You want...

What a week!

It’s been exhilarating. It’s been exhausting. You know when you begin to set off on a long run and as you slowly gain pace you feel this thrill that you’ve peaked and you’re taking longer and longer strides… Soon the ground begins to disappear beneath your feet, and it’s almost like you’re flying! An hour into your run your body slowly begins to tire, but you don’t notice, you’re still on the high.

In order to appease my stationery needs (read wants) Paperchase, WH Smith and Amazon are my favourite haunts.. Amazon as always...

Things I Wish I’d Known

My university career thus far can be broken neatly into three bits: 1st year, when I slammed my foot on the accelerator and rolled the windows all the way down. 2nd year, when I stalled and couldn’t remember where first gear was. And 3rd year, where I have now stopped caring where any of the pedals are and would much rather just freewheel down a hill and see where the road takes me. Like any first year, I got things wrong.

Make the Most of First Year

Over the past week seeing the new freshers moving into student accommodation and settling in, it made me nostalgic about my first year and when I was in their shoes. My first year at university is where some of my best memories lie, and out of my three years in Dundee first year was my favourite. Which is why I think it is so important to make the most of your first year at university! So here are some ways you can ensure to live your...
