The Beauty of Being Lost
For all 8.308 million people living in London, it's incredibly small. You end up with a mutual facebook friend to anyone almost-famous who has ever called this city home, and you can citymapper your way out of pretty much any sticky situation. Yet it's so e...

Going Home
I've spent less and less time in my childhood home over the past few years, to a point where doing so feels like pressing pause. Time doesn't mean anything within the four walls of this house in which I said my first words and then learnt to string them int...

The Suburbs
Ok suburbs, you're not that bad. Opening my windows at seven am when my dad leaves for work into an absolute silence. A special kind of suburban stillness. The air so calm that the quiet rush of the distant motorway carries; everything so subdued that the f...

Early April
Early morning in a fairy lit garden across the table from a guy in a carpeted coat. South London's  Sebastian Flyte  but, I assume, without the ever-present teddy bear, the title, and the money. He sketches the faces of poets as they read in borrowed perman...

(un)defining myself
I mean something different to every person I have ever met. I show different fleeting aspects of myself in different situations, resulting in each person filling in the gaps with their own experiences and coming out with a different idea of who I am. Each o...

The University Decision (ft. giveaway by the University of Greenwich!)
So I've received a lot of emails and tumblr asks recently about how to chose a university right for you. When it comes to picking what university you want to go to, you're the only person who can decide what factors are important to you. Don't let anyone te...

The Great Brighton Escape
Back in the midst of winter, I met my flatmate outside her 9AM Politics Lecture with coffee in one hand and McDonalds breakfast in the other, and together we ran to Blackfriars Station to escape to Brighton for the day. Armed with 'must do' notes from a Bri...

I've overslept
Time is spiralling out of control. This past year has gone past far too fast. Everything seems to have happened just a couple of weeks ago; preparing to come back to university for January exams, a four hour train journey to Edinburgh, too many glasses of r...

the knowledge inferiority complex
I've always found myself at home in libraries . In centuries old architecture surrounded by more books than I could ever hope to read. In my early modern literary culture seminar on Doctor Faustus a few weeks ago, someone questioned what the use of amassing...

absence
I haven't written here in almost two months. My writing of late has been fragments in moleskines; date, time, place, thoughts. I've been moving around a lot; Brighton, York, Portsmouth, Edinburgh. My life has been a series of polar opposites; from one end o...

At Peace
Tangled in white sheets; listening to the traffic outside blend in with Arrival of the Birds,  and police sirens harmonising with the lead violin. Hearing Big Ben chime eleven and just letting the beauty of the place in which you exist sink in. Enjoying the...
