university :: one down, five to go

Happy Monday lovelies! Wowee, the last twenty four hours have been completely the opposite of the contents of my last post. And for that, I am grateful. This morning I had my first written exam of the season. It was not by any means 'good' and there was inevitably so much more I could have…

life :: dwindling

As I sit outside, the birds tweeting their last tweets, and the sunset filling the sky with a pink hue, I can't help but worry. It is the last thing that I should be doing, yet the only thing I seem to be doing. And I'm no longer quite sure why that is. The dwindling…

year abroad :: frustration

*Disclaimer: This is along the lines of a rant.* I'm feeling a little regretful that I lost track of journaling my days here in Libourne, especially when it comes to a writing a new blog post, but when I'm alone, I just want peace. Or, my bed. I just want to shut my eyes and…

life :: self

Okay so, I should really be concentrating on getting things sorted for France...BUT there's a current topic floating around the media that I just have to talk about. I'm entitling this post 'self' because that's exactly what it's going to be about. I was watching Loose Women a month ago now - youthful programme I know…
