Whilst studying the Cold War, one issue continues to provoke a bewildered response inside me as my mind fails to grapple with the justifications for it. The nuclear arms race. By 1961, the US and the Soviet Union had the combined ability to destroy the world three times over. You would have thought it would…Read more Madness
Some of the best memories were made in the early years of education. When going to school was not about passing exams or tests but actually developing your own self. Here are a few of mine. I once brought a knife to school. A sharp one but before you think this person was a crazy…Read more Memories
"My blog is called A Worried Student, don't worry it is not as depressing as it sounds." This is how I usually introduce people to my blog.

In a way, I am envious of owls. People who are like owls I mean. Their brains are wired to work more productively later in the day which means they can pull those things known as all-nighters which are alien to larks like me. I definitely cannot pull an all-nighter as my brain functions best…Read more Are You A Lark Or An Owl?

The immediate answer would be it is easier now of course! I mean back then there were…Read more Growing Up: Then And Now
I pulled my e-book out of my bag yesterday and realised it was broken! I have seen many arguments for and against e-books but let me just say that I loved mine dearly. Firstly, I got it for free! Which perhaps contributed to its early death as I never bothered to buy a case for…Read more The Day My E-book Died
