Post Uni Life

‘I don’t even have a pl-‘ as Phoebe would say. I often get lost and have no clue what I’m doing, but it’s all an adventure right? Welcome to the real world peaches, it sucks, you’re gonna love it.

One Year after University

4th June 2019

It’s officially one year since I left University. So it’s a year since I packed up my cosy student room in York, crammed it into my Mini and entered the real, adult world. I had no job, no income, and no plans bar a handful of fun things with my friends and family that was […]

Adjusting to life after university

21st May 2018

While I am adjusting to life after university, I am now not actually completely done with education. It’s as big of a surprise to me as it is to you. But let’s just rewind for a second. A week ago, (but it feels like four weeks ago) I finished my degree! Then once I was sober […]
