What is the one word that motivates you in life?

As we start to move out of lockdown, I’ve been wanting to write a more positive blog post. So, this post is centred around one thing: what is the one word that drives you forward in life? Which word, if there is one that exists, pushes you and motivates you to the absolute extreme? IsContinue reading “What is the one word that motivates you in life?”

ZERO DISCRIMINATION DAY: WHY WE MUST VIEW EACH OTHER AS EQUALS

March 1st was ‘Zero Discrimination Day’ so I thought I’d share this post that I wrote for the NCS blog about discrimination. We all have our own prejudices, whether we admit to that or not. Discrimination occurs in all shapes and forms, some of which we fail to notice. Prejudices and discrimination are all aroundContinue reading “ZERO DISCRIMINATION DAY: WHY WE MUST VIEW EACH OTHER AS EQUALS”

20 Things to do this lockdown

In England, the announcement was made on 22nd February that there is an end to this Corona-Virus lockdown 3.0. After almost a year now living with the pandemic, Boris Johnson and his team have finally – yes, finally – outlined a plan of when we can get out and see each other again.

The Honest Opinion of a Student During The Pandemic.

If you were to ask any student how they are finding online learning, the majority would probably answer with something like this: “I hate it.” 8o’clock until 4o’clock we sit in front our screens taking notes for exams that are unlikely to go ahead. The monotony is utterly draining. We are expected to fit inContinue reading “The Honest Opinion of a Student During The Pandemic.”

Oxbridge Applications this year

If you didn’t know, I applied to Oxford University for 2021 to read German and Linguistics, but unfortunately I did not get accepted. I was a little disappointed but I wasn’t massively upset by this news, because I know that I’ve done my best to get to the interview stage alone – anyway it’s anContinue reading “Oxbridge Applications this year”

What is happiness to you?

If I asked you the question ‘what makes you happy?’ a lot of the responses would involve materialistic things, such as ‘food’, ‘money’ or even ‘a glass or two of wine’. Those things make me happy too. However, don’t these things just offer momentary happiness? We get the item we so desperately think we needContinue reading “What is happiness to you?”

Here we go again

Here we go again… England National Lockdown Round 3! Oh, the excitement. I’m sure all of you are feeling a whole mix of different emotions towards the announcement made last night at 8pm by our Prime Minister, Boris Johnson: outraged, annoyed, deflated, or truly just pissed off. Me too. But what can we do toContinue reading “Here we go again”

One last thing

I’m sure we can all agree that 2020 has not been the best and the ending to this year has not been welcoming either, with the new tiers in the UK and the realisation that all this won’t be going away when the clocks chime 00:00 tonight. Sorry for the downer. However, as I saidContinue reading “One last thing”

Looking back on 2020❤️

This year has been so different for us all, and we have all found ways of coping with the new adaptations we’ve had to make to our lives and lifestyles. Some of us have struggled more than others, but to some degree we have all found it hard. However, I want to take a momentContinue reading “Looking back on 2020❤️”
