I remember when I first began blogging and after I'd committed to writing a few posts every week, it would feel strange to go a week without posting. But here it is, the annoying sorry for not posting in months (years?) post. Life has been busy and the only reason I am typing this is…Read more A Hello Back
I always say that one of the nicest things about blogging is seeing those names of readers on your notifications who were in sense, with you when it all began. Of course, I don't claim to be a blog of epic proportions, worthy of offering endorsements or advertisements or such things, but what I mean…Read more Thank You for Your Support
A lot has happened in between my blog writing breaks and yet when you break it down, not much has changed. I am still a student trudging along my university degree, preparing to enter what will hopefully be my final year of formal education. Many people talk about doing a masters but I have yet…Read more Summer Highs…and Lows
As an English student, there are a few things that have occurred to me in my 17 weeks of learning. By the way, I only have three weeks left of my first year which is the first issue. They clearly do not know how to count. How can they call it a year when only…Read more University Life
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?
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!
I was extremely excited about a job that I had applied for. It was a tutoring position at a tuition centre which paid well. After going through the process of having an interview and a lesson trial, I was feeling fairly confident about getting the job. Finally I could do away with the underpaid position…Read more Dashed To The Ground
Well that is perhaps stretching it but yesterday I did visit A centre of television. Sky News HQ in Isleworth is a sprawling complex of buildings which are all terribly confusing unless you know exactly where you want to go. The name of a person is not enough as there are many different receptions. I…Read more The Centre Of Television
"Sir, please can you give me less homework? I've started school and I have got so much this year!" As a tutor, this is something you tend to hear nearly every lesson at the start of the academic year as students try to dodge their way out of more work. Often, they may have a…Read more Excuse Season
A break from the Turkey Holiday posts. I went to a job interview today. Well, it was actually a trial lesson as it was at a tuition centre that I had previously applied for. Remember the one where I had said were taking a while to reply and being terribly ambiguous? I had sent them…Read more You Should’ve Told Me There’s No Need To Be Nervous!
If you could enter your desired profession without a degree, would you still go to university or college simply because you love the subject? This is a question that I have asked myself, especially since yesterday's post got me thinking about what our perception of education is. As we know, university degrees have been taking…Read more If You Could..?
I've just completed my A-levels and like thousands of students across the country, I will be going on to university this year. However, the ironic thing about this is that from a young age we were taught to work hard in order to achieve well in education but now the tune has changed. Apparently university…Read more The University Conundrum
