• The Sidlaws: Just a Hop, Skip, and a Jump Away

    …and a bus ride and bit of a walk, too. Holy, Batman, I needed to get out! After being sick for three-weeks, I was yearning for hills, pastures, green stuff, or just about anything to get away from the city. Don’t get me wrong; I like Dundee, but I also love the hills and being […]

  • Going Home.

    Hey there, Welcome to another blog post! I truly cannot believe that I have been in Dundee for six weeks already! Although I have been having an amazing time in Dundee settling in and attending lectures, I had also been counting down the days until I was able to come home for a visit. For […]

  • My week in an Alphabet.

    Hey there! Welcome to another blog post! For my blog this week I wanted to be creative. Instead of writing a full blog I decided to use the alphabet. For every letter, I will write a word or phrase relating to something that has happened in the past week(s). However, to get the full story […]

  • Wandering Around

    It’s been a couple days of wandering around and trying to orient myself, my legs are slowly remembering what it is to walk up and down hills, and I’m beginning to get the feel of the campus and the city centre.   Balgay Cemetory – the scenic route to Ninewells After singing at the Cathedral […]

  • A Small Fish in a Very Very BIg Pond…

    Well that’s me been here for 3 days, and I’m getting settled into student life quite well. I’ve met my flatmates and I’ve started my job – I’m getting on great. One of my biggest issues has been homesickness if I’m being completely honest with you, who knew 140 miles from home could feel so […]

  • Finding my feet

    What a whirlwind this last week has been.  From the hassle of the charity lady who was supposed to collect a sofa and kept standing me up, even on our last appointment an hours before I had to leave for the airport, to the trauma of waving off my cats as they were driven away […]

  • Titles are hard, and so is life

    It’s 1.27 am of the day I’m moving into Halls at Dundee and I’m really nervous. I have clothes strewn across my bed despite the case being full already and my back pack’s falling apart so I haven’t packed any non-clothing items yet. In an attempt to give the situation a chance to sort itself […]

  • Hi from Dundee :)

    Good evening and hello from Dundee, the city which is going to be my adopted home for the next 3 years! 🙂   Well that’s me moved in officially now, after a few teary goodbyes I am the first person in my flat that houses 4 people. I have to say I underestimated how warm […]

  • I haven’t proof-read this

    You know it’s getting real when you have to stop turning down shifts on your zero-hours contract and actually start working. I was plate waiting again today, which meant lots of looking happy-to-be-there and pretending I knew what I was doing. The only way I got through it was thinking that, in exactly seven days […]
