  I desperately wanted to title this post ‘an ode to Low Maintenance Friends’ but funnily enough didn’t expect it would get the same pull. But the thing is, you so know the people in you’re life I’m talking about. LMF’s. Easy going Gals. The people that do not care, that you only use your phone […]

Yeah so, I didn’t have a suitable header image for this post, so I just went with a cute one of Portsmouth, from a cute day when the sun was actually shining. By suitable, I mean remotely aesthetically pleasing, alas there is nothing aesthetically pleasing about the multitude of drunken/naked flat party/messy room photos I […]

Which is another way of saying, music channels are currently making me despair, but that’s a rant for a different day.  But also, I think I might edit this list […]

Okay, so you know that feeling in your chest when you come out of an exam, maybe it went surprisingly well, maybe you don’t care anymore, but it’s over. Well, imagine that on prozak, merrily tipsy on tequila and you’ve got where I am about now. My exams are over. I have finished my first […]

My dad is quite lenient. He never really set rules in our house. He bought our booze at 15 and was always happy when we came to him with a new idea. But when his only daughter, at 17-years-old came up to him and said,”I want to leave the country for an extended amount of time,” […]

Did you know it was #UniMentalHealthDay ? No? Me either. In school, I had a Pastoral Support Manager. She lived down the road from me and was old drinking friends with my mother. I knew her two sons. I would go out on a limb and say she was not educated in anything other than […]
