• Moving Day- The Halls Experience

    Saturday the 31st of August 2013 was the day I made The Big Move- a day which many of you may be experiencing this weekend.  I actually don’t remember much from the actual day which is a little sad as it’s probably one of the most important days of my life so far. I do […]

  • The journey starts here…

    Hey there!  My name is Natasha and I am studying Primary Teaching at the University of Dundee. Today is my first day living in my new flat, in a new city, surrounded by new people. Last night I drove from my home town up to Dundee with my lovely big sister having had to say […]

  • T MINUS 4 WEEKS (Freshers’ tips!)

    As I sit in the office during summer placement eating a tuna sandwich and sipping on a hot cup of coffee looking out at the bleak and drizzly August- yes August- sky, I had to remind myself (and all of you) that it’s not all doom and gloom. Yes- summer may be almost over, my tan may be […]

  • Avengers Assemble!: Getting started in Comics Studies.

    With Fresher’s Week flying past us, it’s finally time to settle down and get to grips with our courses; and I for one couldn’t be more excited about embarking on my Postgraduate adventure in Comics Studies. Matriculation on Friday posed as a great mixer for fellow postgraduate students in the Humanities department as we met […]

  • Jagerbombs

    I woke up yesterday feeling peachy keen and ready for my first lectures, laughing off the mere idea of the so-called ‘freshers flu’. I felt fine, and so should everyone else! At the welcome lunch we had during freshers week we were assured by the Vice president of DUSA that we’d get it, but I’m […]

  • So that was Freshers Week

    There’s been so much going on this week, I could have easily written a post each day. For the most part though, by the time I’d walked back and forth to campus once or twice, and partaken of everything on offer, I was too exhausted to think about sitting down and writing anything! According to […]

  • One week’s done

    Hello everyone, I hope you all have a fine week behind you, met all of those nice people, course mates you expected and that those who lives in the halls found unison with their flat mates and get along very well with them. I think the events organized and held by DUSA or by the […]

  • The city of “Jute, Jam and Journalism”

    Quarter past nine in the morning, totally hungover, I dragged myself out of the bed thinking it was a bad idea to go out last night especially when we have Principal’s welcome speech the next morning. Not being able to function properly, I forced myself to get ready and was there fifteen minutes late. To […]

  • Lost duckling

    It’s been a while since my last post. Probably around 10 days, maybe more. 10 incredibly busy and crazy days. I thought moving abroad would be easier second time around, I was wrong! I’ve been running around in circles, completely lost. I’ve also developed a technique that worked rather well so far it’s called „They […]
