A Creative’s Confession: Why my degree isn’t as ‘real’ as yours

As an English and Creative Writing finalist, I am very experienced in the element of justifying why my degree is just as real as Maths or Chemistry. Yes, I only have 7 contact hours a week. Yes, I only have 1 exam. Yes, sometimes even I think the whole thing is a cop-out - because it doesn’t feel like work work when I’m sitting in a cafe, or in my bedroom with the fairy-lights on, deciding whether my character would really say that. If you catch me eye-rolling when I am questioned about whether I think I’ve spent my £27,000 wisely, it’s probably because I’ve realised that, actually, you’re quite right. Essay-writing has taught me to always have a balanced argument - whether they work with your agenda, or against it.

Hey Babies! 

It feels a lifetime ago that I've checked in on here. I hope you're all settling into the new year well and ~ maybe ~ are keeping to your resolutions. 

Inspired by Gym Shark's '66 Day Challenge' (far more than the gloomy arrival of January 1st), I set myself quite a few of my own resolutions! Gym Shark claims that it takes 66 days to make or break a habit. That's only two months (and a bit)... not to say that it's easy to make changes,  but when you think about it, it's very possible, for everyone.

13 must-buys for VEGANUARY: on a budget

In our uni house of 6 people, we do a communal vegan/veggie shop every week and normally spend around £13 each.

I knew meat eaters in my halls who would spend triple this amount. Of course, if you have the money to spend on lots of exotic ingredients and food, that’s great, but this post is for those of you who once, like me, said: “I would consider being vegan if - I was rich.” Or, alternatively, you just want to know what it is that we actually eat besides - well - lettuce?
