When I finished university last year, I was lucky enough to start work pretty much almost immediately. Whilst that was all well and good for the wallet, it wasn't as good for the mind and soul. It has been a great year in terms of work, many new experiences and things learnt but before I…Read more From Above
What Do You Do?
So what do you do? I stared at the young lad who had come to rent my camera and my mind struggled for a few seconds. It was the first time I’d been asked that question by a total stranger since graduating from university. I find myself in a position difficult to describe; on one…Read more What Do You Do?
Before flying off to Malta and in the middle of election madness, I had the opportunity to film an event held by Innovation Forum. It is an international organisation which encourages business entrepreneurship. This event was focussed on bridging the gap between academia and enterprise with a panel of experts offering their words of wisdom.…Read more Innovation Forum
A Whole Summer Later…
It's never a good sign when you can't remember the last blog post you wrote. A lot has happened since then. We had an election in the UK and as I was part of ITV's current affairs team, we were making documentaries on the leader of each political party. It was an amazing six weeks…Read more A Whole Summer Later…
Let’s Type a Bit More
After typing over 6000 words today, I have no idea why I have decided to write a post as I sit here eating a well-earned bowl of spaghetti bolognese. Well, it wasn't 6000 words of coursework or anything that required too much thinking, but 6000 words of logging. You should know what logging is from previous…Read more Let’s Type a Bit More
Beating the 9K
It was done. With a click of the mouse, I'd paid off the final installment of my university tuition fees. I looked around for a crowd of applauding fans but the room was as usual empty, save for the three mugs and two water bottles I'd accumulated on my bookshelves over the past few days…Read more Beating the 9K
London Community Impact Project
Last Saturday, I was happy to take part in something called London's Community Impact Project which is a student initiative to tackle issues like homelessness. Students from universities across Central London came together to hold an event for the homeless. The event was held above Temple Station in Central London, which aimed to provide key…Read more London Community Impact Project
Over the past week, I have had this phrase hurled, flung, smirked, and smiled at me. You're next! They say mischievously and alas, events have proven to show that to some extent this statement is now true. My second eldest brother's wedding took place over the weekend and as the whole family inhales, taking a…Read more You’re Next!
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to film a panel of graduates who came to visit my university. Although my primary aim was to film, it turned out to be an incredibly motivational event for myself as well. Sometimes students do not realise the value of such events but they can really help…Read more Motivational Graduates
He had to do it again. This was the worst part of the job. As a young child, he had hated school assemblies and even now, whenever he would see his son standing on stage, his eyes would tear up. Never mind the fact his eight year old voice would squeak throughout the hall, sounding…Read more Breathe
When I first setup this blog many years ago, back in the heady days of A-level English, History and Politics; it was mainly in response to my financial worries regarding university. I was part of the unlucky year. The first set of students to not receive the educational maintenance allowance and the first to have…Read more Looking Back
