In my previous post, ‘With Every Negative Comes a Positive’, I gave a little insight into the reality of living abroad. Following that, I thought I’d share a week in my life, delving deeper into the reality of working as a language assistant. I was debating whether to upload this. Of…

Perfect Porridge

Take one glance at my Instagram feed and you’ll know I have a huge love for porridge. Yep. Porridge. The breakfast food with the bad reputation for being weak and runny with its slop-like consistency. Except porridge doesn’t have to be that boring bowl of gruel which Oliver Twist sheepishly…

Wandering, Progressing & Choosing Spontaneity I always say it, but this past month has flown by. The day I’m uploading this marks exactly one month since I hopped off the plane at Madrid’s airport; one month since the stark Spanish heat hit us, shivering in Liverpool’s cold winds just a…

Student Housing 101

Like most university students, you probably spent your first year in halls. Personally, I loved my accommodation. Well, despite the incessant fire alarm which insisted to go off at the worst moments: mid-shower, dozing off the night before an exam, dinner cooking away in the oven. Yeah. That part was…

Integrating Fitness into Every Day Life

During term time at uni I was going to the gym about 4-5 times a week. I’d wake up, head to the gym and work up a sweat before heading home to get ready for lectures. Now however, the gym has taken a backseat. We’re half-way through August and it’s…
