Somewhere Only We Know

For you, “the one” during a time in space

A letter to my 16-year-old self

January 14th 2017

After reading Chynna’s series of letters to herself, Georgie’s recent letter to her 18-year-old self and laughing at all tweets from the hashtag #WhatIWouldTellMy15YearOldMe this morning, I was inspired to write a letter to 16-year-old Pauline. 16-year-old me would’ve finished GCSEs and going onto A Levels at this point (I think) and would be in the midst of a toxic relationship.

5 things I have learnt in 2016

December 22nd 2016

With 2016 quickly coming to an end, I wanted to share five life lessons I learnt in 2016. 1. My free time is worth a lot more than a purposeless feed As a student, I often had (a lot more than I’d like to admit) lazy days where I’d just aimlessly waste my time away […]

November, For Me

December 2nd 2016

Hello, December! I can’t believe it’s already the final month of 2016. This year has been an aggressive roller coaster ride, but despite the difficulties I’ve faced, I’m determined to finish the year with the biggest smile on my face and a positive reflection of what I’ve achieved this year! Let’s take a quick look […]

Whirlwind

November 20th 2016

I haven’t been able to blog for the last week (or two now?) because my Macbook decided to die on me. Honestly, I was shocked more than upset when it wouldn’t switch on despite having full battery and having the cable in because compared to my previous laptop (a Toshiba) my Macbook was amazing – […]

I’ve not failed.
I’ve just found ways that won’t work.

May 21st 2016

Apologies for the lack of posts recently, it has just been over a month since my last one but, I have an excuse which all student bloggers will all feel me on: it’s exam session. How am I? Still alive but I’m barely breathing. I finish my second year of university 4 weeks – a part […]

Eye see a problem

December 29th 2015

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw a rather angry tweet about my recent visit at my local Boots Opticians. My mom recently got back home from a visit from The Philippines and found that there is a hereditary history of glaucoma on my mom’s side of the family. For those who don’t know, Glaucoma […]

Water Under The Bridge

November 29th 2015

As I’ve said on my previous post back in October, there is a Christmas market every year in the city centre in my town. There was also a Christmas light switch on event (where everyone gathers to see some well-known person switch the lights on) which I usually watch every year but I didn’t get to […]
