My experience at the Hugh Jackman concert

It was 9:00 AM on a Friday morning.

I had set the alarm in advance for this time, not so that I can get to class on time but because I wanted to be ready when the tickets for Hugh Jackman’s concert go on sale. I’m quite musical and to be given the chance to go to such an event […]

LSE Halls: Why Northumberland House?

I live at one of LSE’s Halls of Residence – Northumberland House, to be specific – and it’s located just a minute’s walk from Trafalgar Square. In my opinion, it is one of THE BEST HALLS at LSE. But don’t let me influence your opinion. Read and decide for yourself.
