2017 Hopes

It’s out with the old, and in with the new. Goodbye skies of grey, hello skies of blue.


Welcome to 2017! Another year!! I’m starting to feel fairly old at the thought that 2007 was now 10 years ago, 10 whole years! I hope the new year has treated you well so far, and that you had a great night partying/staying in/working/whatever.

2016: my year in review

The end of the year, the start of a new

Today is the 30th December 2016, the penultimate day of 2016. It is widely up for debate whether this year has been average, or pretty abysmal. Sure, a lot of well known deaths have shook the year, Dr Donald Henderson, Alan Rickman, George Michael and Carrie Fisher to name yet a few. And yeah, it’s been pretty divisive politically too, the results of Brexit and the US Election have split families and made the talk over Christmas dinner particularly explosive.

Things I’ve learned at university

I’ve learned lots, except anthropology related issues

It has been ten weeks to the day since I marked my transition to adult by moving 241 miles from my home to London for university. I’ve definitely learned a lot over these weeks, and in the biggest clich√© of bloggers, here are my top ones in a handy list.

Where is home? Coming to terms with change.

So against all odds, we made it this far. By “we” I mean, myself and the grand total of zero readers I have accumulated. And by “this far” I mean literally just a second post. Honestly, the thought of writing this only came to me during my lecture on Political Anthropology; as interesting as it was, my mind does still wander.

And even as I’m writing this, as a distraction from typing notes, I find myself needing further distractions, whether that be painting my nails a shade suitable for mermaids, or updating my icon on Twitter.
