Studying from home; My Open University Experience!

Hi Lovelies, I hope you’re all well! It will come as no surprise to hear that in between blogging (occasionally) and working part-time, I also study part-time with the Open University. After talking to friends and family about my experience thus far, I thought it might be a good idea to share everything in a […]

Student Savers: Coconut Risotto

Hey Guys! It’s time for another instalment of my ‘Student Savers’ series, ready? Last week, I talked a little about the power (and convenience) of the marinade with my Tequila Chicken recipe. I find that recipe perfect for when you know you’ll be knackered later on when you get home from uni/work; prepping in advance […]

For my next trick…

I’ll start this post by saying hello again, and apologizing for my two month absence. I’ve used University as an excuse for my sloppy posting schedule since the start of the year, but now I can no longer hide behind such a time-consuming tie. I’ve FINISHED, for now. The last few months have been the […]

My Top 5 ‘To-Read’ list

Hey folks, how are we all today? I’m mostly writing this post to procrastinate, because I’m getting sick of staring at my dissertation and Microsoft Word, and as a result, I’m starting to fantasise over all the things I want to do when Uni is over. You all know well enough I’ve loved the university […]

Dear Garden Quarter…

This post is written in response to an article posted on the Chester Chronicle website on the 26th November this year, whereby students living in and around Garden Quarter came under fire once again. I advise reading the article first, for some context, before continuing to amuse yourself with my response. Dear Residents of Garden […]

Results Day, aka the worst day of my life.

7am, 14th August 2012 Results Day. I’d woken up ridiculously early, certainly earlier than I had the past few days. I got out of bed and set up the laptop, logged into UCAS and prayed something had changed. It hadn’t. No ‘Congratulations you have been accepted to the University of Chester’, only a notification telling […]

Employers, it pays to be kind.

After noticing unemployment rates have made it into the news for the umpteenth time this year, I think it’s fair to say it’s about time that I put in my two-penny’s worth about it, considering it directly affects myself and my peers, even at University. I will begin by saying I moved to Uni in […]

University – It’s easier than you’d expect!

The big step into university isn’t quite as daunting as one might imagine. After finally settling in, and being here for a whopping two weeks (I know, ages) I feel quite at ease about being on my own. It’s fair to say that independence has never been much of a scary prospect for me. There […]
