So what have you been doing with your reading week Mister? Umm... Yes, that's exactly what I thought. Lazy university students begging for a reading week after only five weeks of learning in which you only have eight contact hours! Yes well there's a lot to read. Pah! Nonsense, no one actually reads in their…Read more A Conversation
Why You Really Should NOT KIDNAP Me
I have no idea why this topic came into my head but I thought it would make a funny post. Perhaps it has something to do with binge watching the TV show Elementary. It is the American take on a modern day Sherlock Holmes for those of you don't know. I have of course already…Read more Why You Really Should NOT KIDNAP Me
Black Friday Tuition Fees Offer
Dear University, I am contacting you with regards to a matter of utmost importance, significance and urgency. It is a question which has largely been forgotten today, drowned by the hordes of masses who have swarmed in the early hours of the morning to the hub of electrical devices and discounts. So, the question is:…Read more Black Friday Tuition Fees Offer
Lecture Hall Perils!
I’m picturing the scene and it makes me think of Dumbledore calling for silence in the great hall. That is what my younger brother said when I told him how loud my lecture hall gets before the lecturer begins. No mate, lecture halls are certainly not anywhere near as grand as those in Harry Potter,…Read more Lecture Hall Perils!
A Smash, A Crash!
Blog posts seem to be hitting me from all sides at the moment. Well technically that isn't true since my posts have been ccurring with less frequency recently but remember how the blog post fell on me when my bedroom ceiling collapsed? Well yesterday, a blog post came barging upto my front garden in the…Read more A Smash, A Crash!
Urgh! University Timetables
Apparently, my University has a policy to not allow seminar class changes for students if the reason is simply that it clashes with their part-time job. Except of course, it isn't a simple matter. The fact a student has to work part-time is normally a good indication that they don't have money on tap coming…Read more Urgh! University Timetables
How Much For Some Coke?
Central London is a bit like Istanbul. Oh don't be silly you say, there's no way the two cities can be compared when on one side you have stunning, glorious, breathtaking ancient architecture and the sparkling Bosphorous whilst on the other there are simply glass buildings with lights glinting on the top at night and…Read more How Much For Some Coke?
Arise Student! Arise!
Life is hard when you have to wake up at 7 am. Oh yes, for eons and eons, I have avoided the bleary eyed mornings of waking up before the postman has collected his load for the day and those times when I would wake up for school have disappeared blissfully into the deepest hidey…Read more Arise Student! Arise!
If Only The World Was My Oyster..
If the world was my oyster, then I certainly would be travelling far more than I do now but with airline tickets reaching the stratosphere and my budget shrinking with the start of university, I enjoyed my week in Turkey as much as I possibly could. I travelled with a local youth group, hence my…Read more If Only The World Was My Oyster..
Dealing With British Weather
What do you do after it has rained during Summer in England? Pull out the BBQ of course. We are not going to let dear old H20 mess up our plans right? That's what we did today after a downpour of rain which threatened to sink all our hopes of a BBQ down the drain,…Read more Dealing With British Weather
Receiving Results On Live TV, EEK!
If you have nothing to do with the education sector, then you probably look on in bemusement when results day rolls up. I trust however, that you are not one of those who dismisses students' achievements by saying things like "oh exams were far more difficult in my time" or "I wonder how many real…Read more Receiving Results On Live TV, EEK!
Caught Out In The Beautiful Rain
Remember that post where I described how I was upset that I hadn't been outside during a rainstorm? Well yesterday, my wish was granted. I was royally, completely and utterly drenched. I was taking my bike to the local Halfords for its six weeks service when the first drops suddenly began to fall. In seconds,…Read more Caught Out In The Beautiful Rain
