How I survived on £900 a month in London

Sound impossible, right? It near enough is, when you can't live with your boyfriend, and don't want to share a room with some stranger (Jesus Christ, never, ever, just no. I'm an only child and enjoy walking around naked. Enough said.). During my second year away from education I somehow got myself into a terribly… Continue reading How I survived on £900 a month in London

New Year, Old Me.

The 2016 summaries have been popping up on various blogs over the past fortnight or so, but I didn't want to sum up the year before it actually finished. As Polish people say, Don't praise the day before sunset. This means I'm a bit late to the New Year party. Who cares. 2016 was a truly crappy… Continue reading New Year, Old Me.

4.5 years with a Kindle – review

*Just to make things clear - this review is in no way endorsed by Amazon, I have never been asked by them to do it, and although I did receive my Kindle for free, it was from my parents, not a multibillion dollar corporation.

While clenching my teeth, trying to convince myself I'm… Continue reading How to pack for uni without getting a back injury

A little while ago I had a very nice surprise - an email from my university saying that I have finished the year in the top 10% of my cohort. I was a little bit surprised, but also very happy with myself. Because, you know, I'm not really a person who spends all days in… Continue reading How I ended up in top 10% of my year without studying in the evenings

Don’t be ashamed to show you’re happy!

So I was in one of those Tesco superstores, and I was in a particularly good mood. So I started singing quietly to myself, and doing a little dance, my basket full of avocados (because I'm such a basic bitch) acting as my dancing partner. And then I realised that no one else around me… Continue reading Don’t be ashamed to show you’re happy!

Long Distance Relationships – survival guide

I could definitely call myself a long distance relationship veteran. I have gone through both long distance friendships, and long distance relationships. But that was all when I was a teenager, who has grown up in the digital age. It seemed quite natural to have friends across the country or across the world. Until I… Continue reading Long Distance Relationships – survival guide
