People sleeping in the LSE library? It must be the exam period.

What am I doing here? Oh god, the very fact that I am writing this blog post is documenting the fact that I am not revising. Despite there being a month and a half until my first exam the guilt pangs have begun.

There are several different approaches one can take towards revision:

1. The I-spend-every-waking-hour-revising approach.

2. The If-I-close-my-eyes-then-exams-won’t-approach approach.

3. The […]

All for a name

When I saw the opportunity to work for ‘The Times’ doing some research at LSE I was overjoyed and determined that I should not miss this opportunity. If I could collect 25 15-minute-long surveys over six days then I could earn £4 per survey or £100. It sounded great.

Today I was in University from 10.30-4pm. Apart from a half […]

Down and out in London

Yesterday I spent an hour wandering around Covent Garden. I was in one of those moods where I wanted to buy something, I wanted to indulge myself, to purchase some retail therapy. Yet, shop in, shop out, I found myself growing more frustrated by what was before me, than inspired. I thought the clothes were too expensive or not […]

Waking up happy

There’s something in my life at the moment that you couldn’t buy or sell. My life is at a point of balance where I wake up happy. I am driven. A cup of coffee by my side, a bowl of porridge in my belly and a book on Nationalism in my hand. It’s worth getting up at 7am when […]

The best things in life are free!

My hair and I have been on a long journey since my first haircut in a salon at the age of 12. We’ve been down to grade 1 when I had my head shaved for charity- scary right? Now, finally, years later it sits upon my shoulders, the longest it has been for 6 years. I think that one […]

Work hard, play hard, sleep harder.

My housemate recently had her birthday and for her present I decided it would be a nice treat for us to both get a massage. Saturday afternoon we popped to Spa and Massage in Camden (which incidentally is great value for money) to have a half hour massage. Considering the amount of running and consequential knots that are scattered […]

Karma, keeping your arrogance in check.

I have cycled for the past year and a half in London. It is wonderful. I have saved so much time and money avoiding the clammy tube, waiting for buses or being late and walking. However I feel like karma has come along to keep me in check this past week. Although I know many fellow cyclists whom have […]

Redefining Student Stereotypes

Moving to university for many is the first opportunity for them to take control of their lives. Now whilst the glamour of getting drunk, eating ready-meals and waiting until you have one pair of underwear left before you do the washing might be tempting for some, I prefer to opt for an alternative lifestyle.

Clubbing is not all it is […]

ON AIR: Pulse Radio

It’s Friday! I’ve had one coffee and a 9am. Buzzing.

A nice way to break my 4-class-Friday: The ‘?’ Show on Pulse Radio.

Listen live or online.

LSE radio allows you to channel all music tastes from the most mainstream to the uber obscure. For those who are rookies to the guys who can scratch records. I would recommend it to […]

Happiness is…

When I was at secondary school I remember saying to my parents “I’ve got plenty of friends, it’s just I don’t think they quite understand me.” They always gave the same response, “wait until you get to university.” At the time I don’t think I believed them and the wait seemed everlasting. However, just in case there is anyone […]
