Student eating

As you have all already gathered, I am a student. I am also a student in one of the UK’s most expensive cities meaning I run on a tight budget. I am lucky that I am close with my flatmates, because we all share food and meals. Around 6pm each evening, I’ll get a text saying “what’s for tea?” and we’ll cook together, eat together, and wash up together. This little arrangement not only brings us closer but also is pretty cost effective. We use whatever each other has and it works out cheaper. Also, with the pressure of cooking for others we’re more likely to make healthier, homemade food instead of just ovening chips (which we do from time to time ofc)

A very late reflection on the Women’s March on London

Take a stand

I am sorry it has taken me so long to write this, the past nine days since the march have been pretty busy and this blog post got pushed and pushed back. I’m sorry. I love you. This won’t happen again.

Hard work is paying off

A nightmare at Kings Cross, and a lot of personal achievement.

Hello again,

Sorry I’ve been a little absent lately, in all honesty I’ve just been trying to enjoy time at home, with my wonderful parents whilst I could. Yesterday I took the journey back down to the big city of London, and I felt out of touch with the pace; having spent a month in a quiet town.

Some photos

An easy cop out to spare me from writing a post

Hi guys,

Recently I bought myself a neat little bridge camera in the Christmas sales, it’s really nothing fancy but it takes good (enough) photos. I’m enjoying learning to use it, and I obviously would like to improve which I’m sure will come with time. I’m also fairly excited to take it back to London with me, and get some city shots. I’m struggling to find something substantial to talk about right now, so I thought for the time being I’ll share some of the photos I’ve taken over the week. Photos include my cat, a sunset, and a visit into the countryside.

Cya,

Liv

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. But has it all been that bad??

The last week at University

The last week before Christmas when you can’t get seasonal because deadlines.

Hello pals,

It’s been over two weeks since I’ve wrote here, and I swear I thought about writing something at least four times. Due to my nature, I obviously ¬†haven’t and now I feel guilty about not updating. I feel mostly guilty for myself, I’m doing this so I can look back at my memz whilst at university. (memz being my shitty shortening for memories, obvs)

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.
