No one puts Baby in a box…

I hope you all enjoyed the 'Dirty dancing' reference in the title even half as much as I enjoyed thinking of it. Girls just love to have puns, eh? As I get closer to graduation, I have been considering all my choices that have led to this point. I think it is common for people… Continue reading No one puts Baby in a box…

Who are YOU?

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?

Sit down, be humble…

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…

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands

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

Align yourself with success…

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…

Before him, there was you

So today is International Woman's Day. What a time to be alive! I have loved seeing people posting all over my social media accounts celebrating all these inspirational women, sharing their own experiences and pushing for a more equal society. I had been wondering if I had anything to contribute to the existing rhetoric and… Continue reading Before him, there was you

Talk less, smile more

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

Say NO to this…

So after what was the most amazing summer of my life, I am now back at University for my third year. It feels like only yesterday that I was writing about freshers on here and now I'm nearly finished. All my fellow musical theatre lovers will have noticed the 'Hamilton' reference in the title. It's… Continue reading Say NO to this…

A thought on happiness

So it has been over a month since I last wrote something on here so thought I should give a quick update on what I have been up to. So far this term I have been in a play, started writing for the university newspaper, had a weekly radio show, been marketing two musicals, organised a fundraiser for… Continue reading A thought on happiness

Water is a poor substitute for chocolate…

In the spirit of the New Year and all my friends talking about their New Year's resolutions I thought I would write about why I will not be making any this year. So I have tried and failed to be healthy again. Towards the end of last term at university I made the decision to… Continue reading Water is a poor substitute for chocolate…
