I have this weird habit where I like to refer to myself as a robot. For example, after I finished my first exam and began preparing for the next one, I talked about needing to wipe my "hard-drive" and needing to "reinstall" the information from the new module. My flatmates had the pleasure of watching… Continue reading Did you get the new software update?
I was having a conversation with a friend on the walk home from University a while ago and we were discussing a particular activity. And I said: "I would never do that. It's not really me. That does not fit my personal brand". Needless to say, she looked at me as though I was crazy.… Continue reading Who are YOU?
We live in a world where we are taught to be independent. Every one has an opinion on everything and often we do not take the time to know our limits and accept that other people may know more about a topic that we do. The past year, I have been really trying to learn… Continue reading Sit down, be humble…
Today I decided to revise in the public library of my local town rather than my usual floor 5 spot in my University library. I recently finished my first exam and felt the change of scenery might help to reset the focus of my brain from the previous module to preparation for the next few… Continue reading If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands
I know it has been the longest time since I published something new. Can I even call myself a blogger anymore, considering I have not actually blogged in months? Anyway - thank you all for sticking with me through the drought and carrying on reading my old stuff. It is my fourth and final year… Continue reading Align yourself with success…

For example, I've talked about daily microagressions in The Everyday Racist, stereotypes in I am not your maid, and privilege in Check your privilege. Whilst there are definitely many systemic issues and wider societal institutionally ingrained discrepancies. In certain situations, I… Continue reading Don’t close that door…
So today is my friend Zoe's 21st birthday. We have literally been friends since the first day of first year of University. We have lived together for the past 3 years and honestly, she is one of my closest friends. Birthday's are such a strange concept as it is essentially just a day just to… Continue reading VLOG: surprise birthday trip
So this is going up a few days later than I would like as I've been super busy but last week I went to see the curious incident of the dog in the night-time. I was on an internship in London so decided to give myself a little after-work treat.... https://youtu.be/iP7g-YKsMQg I had an amazing time… Continue reading VLOG: The curious incident of the dog in the night-time
I was recently in a seminar on company law at university when the seminar tutor told me to be quiet and let others speak. He said I should "give a chance to those who needed to spend more time thinking before they answered and did not want to impulsively put their hands up". Anyone in… Continue reading Talk less, smile more
Dear 2017 - you have come around so quickly, it feels like only yesterday it was 2016! And whilst I am so excited for the new year and all it will bring, as I move forward I think it is also important to take a look back... 2016 has been branded my many as the… Continue reading Ode to 2016
