New Year, New Adventures ~*

Good evening friend’s! How has everyone been? I hope you have had a good Christmas and New Year! it seems like so long since I have posted anything but alas, I have been a busy bee since the last time and the first semester of fourth year almost had me questioning why it was I decided to do a joint degree in the first place! Take it from me kids and fellow scholars with a desire to get out there and see the world, doing a joint degree is like serving a prison sentence – tediously long and you find yourself questioning whether it was worth it in the first place! I am hoping though, that by the end of this final semester I can come back and tell myself that I did the right thing by putting myself through this suffering!

Anyways enough of the pessimistic talk that I’ve opened with and now onto… slightly more optimistic talk! bear with me guys, this is just the beginning. As I grudgingly rolled out of bed to welcome the start of this new hideous semester, I opened the blinds to reveal a beautiful snowy blizzard tumbling headfirst from the skies above… it was a beautiful sight to behold as Scotland has not had much snow this winter so seeing it making a comeback was nice and all but knowing that I would have to go out into it was heartbreaking. I am a lover of being inside warm places and watching the rain or snow making an appearance but being outside in it is an entirely different ball park altogether and one that I do not appreciate as much as maybe others do!

Alas, as this new semester takes its shape I will be looking forward to writing a dissertation on children’s rights and well as working on a research project for the psychology part of my degree. In the meantime I will update y’all on what adventures I have planned for this mighty 2018. I will make this year one to remember and as such, I hope that you will follow me as you once did as the more people there are to share a journey, the better it will be! As far as my blogging goes, I plan to blog once every two weeks, probably on a Wednesday or Thursday so keep your eyes peeled for those updates! That’s about all I have for this week – There will be more to come in two weeks time so see ya then!

Until next time, take care for then! ~*


Starting a New Chapter ~*

Good evening friend’s! How are y’all, I hope you’re well… from now on, I’ll revert to my once a week posts, mainly on Wednesdays but we’ll see what happens! For today, I have some exciting news for y’all regarding le moi and what has been a big step in my adulting achievements this far! 

So! The day after I got back from my holiday, I was to move into what would be my new flat for my last year of uni… as you can imagine, doing something as big as this the day after coming back from somewhere was probably not the best thought I’ve ever had but, hey ho! Of course, a part of me was really excited for this to happen, – y’know, the feeling of being independent again amongst other things –  whilst the other half, – the more rational half – felt like I should have moved the move-in date to some time a little later…

On the actual day however, things went a whole lot smoother than what was expected. My flatmate and his partner were seriously helpful and helped get my stuff, along with what was theirs, from the three car fulls I had travelled through with, up the stairs and safely into the flat. I love my room in the same way that I loved it when I first seen it…

Yeah, it might be a tad on the small side and the white paint ain’t doing much for it, but now that it’s all dressed up, it’s much more homely and so cosy to be in! The living room is also coming together slowly, we need to decorate it more for sure but this place is so much better than being in halls… and so much quieter to! 

That night, after most of the unpacking was done – I hate unpacking, more than packing, don’t you? Anyways, we all chilled on the sofa with a glass of Asti to celebrate what was now our new home! Even if it took us ten minutes to figure out how to turn on the oven! 

That’s all for this week friend’s, stay tuned for next week’s post which will feature more minor disasters as we figure out how to actually own a flat! Take care for now though! ~* 

Excited for summer! ~*

Good afternoon friend’s! It’s been a while but I have been caught up with life and exams to notice time slipping by!

3rd year is over now which means I am free! This year has been hard and the exams have been brutal but I have lived to tell the tale. I celebrated the end of exams by going to a friends leaving party!

It was a truly great night and I wish I didn’t have to leave early but life happens! Now, I can look forward to the summer and the year ahead, with a family holiday coming up soon and moving into a new flat in July, I’m super excited for what’s to come!

That’s about it for now friend’s so I shall leave you with some pictures of Sir Brinks with my cousins pupper!

Brinks is the leader here

They’re walking side by side here, Brinks is the one with his tail in the air!

Take care my friend’s! Until next time! ~* 

Chillin’ as a Ghoul ~*

Good afternoon friend’s! how is everyone?? y’all doing good? I have had a pretty chill week since my last post so let’s get started…

So last week, I left y’all by saying I was looking forward to going to the Ghoul Ball for the Rock Society. As it was the last event of the year, I was really looking forward to it and there was every reason to; good food, good music and not forgetting the great banter! The meal was held at Stirling Court Hotel, which is up by the university and it was sooo good! I had the lentil broth followed by beef in a red wine jus and sticky toffee pudding for dessert – delish!

Here are some more photo’s from the night, I regret not taking more but I just had that much fun and did not want to miss a thing! Basically, this was our epic table, I was also to shy to go around the other’s but I’ll do my best next year!


Next on the list was Easter! I hope you all had a decent enough holiday, even if you don’t celebrate it. I decided that it would be a good idea to bake a cake, in true me fashion, I replaced an ingredient with another, completely random one that you don’t use for baking – y’know, to see what would happen because, why not? Anyway 25 minutes later following a minor cake explosion, I was able to save the cake by ignoring it and keeping it in the oven for a further 10 minutes! what was my secret ingredient I hear you ask? it was bicarbonate of soda instead of baking powder that I used – innovative, I know… tasted good though!


Last night I went to a meeting featuring the new rock soc committee (which, I’m also going to be a part of next year) and some members of the old rock soc committee to handover stuffs and discuss some plans before next year begins. We went to the Groundhouse – I am a slave to good coffee – where I went for my usual but without the cream and marshmallows and got this on top of my coffee instead;


White Chocolate Mocha’s are the best people – hands down.

So I will leave you today with my sorry student life revising for exams with a big mug of coffee, until next time friend’s, take care ~*





Pancake disasters… ~*

Good afternoon friend’s! as promised, I have a Wednesday post for y’all to satisfy your needs in life! I would say that the past week has been entertaining to say the least so let’s get started ~*

So, our tale begins with the delightful day that is pancake day. I love cooking and baking to all levels friend’s but pancakes somehow… take it to a new level. At eight in the morning of this faithful day, a disaster hit our kitchen hob as I descended upon it with my pancake mix and no idea what to expect. This is how it turned out… the first one you see.. turned out to be an epic fail on pancake levels;

I mean… the first one compared to the rest does look like a pancake… but it got burnt and broke and well… a future note to myself and to others would be this – do not, under any circumstance make pancakes at 8am… it’s truly an awful idea if you are not one of life’s morning people and I do not recommend it. On another note, they did taste good with white chocolate spread so I guess that’s a bonus. 

Next on my list was my psychology experiment that I got to do which involved a dog toy and playgroup children! I think I was far too excited about this. So for my developmental module, I have to be a part of a group and conduct experiments before doing a write up of a report – basically saying what ya did, how you did it, did it go the way you expected and did it answer the question. Anyways, I got to experiment with the playgroup children along with another group member and it was the best thing ever! I actually have never seen children so adorable as that before! I just wanted to adopt every one of them but I had to remain professional as I squeaked this toy with my head to see if they would do the same. Our experimentation was on imitation if you were wondering why. When I went home I gave Sir Brinks, the extra squeaky toy and he forgave me for being away from home for so long! cue the cuteness;


During my procrastination, I got some drawing done and this was the outcome. If you have ever seen Fruits Basket, (an anime for those who have not) you will know who this is… hopefully!

finished Kyo 

And that’s about it, I’m going to a rock soc social tomorrow so I’ll take more photo’s to show y’all next week but for now I will leave you with a photo of the Wallace monument and the saltire flag blowing wildly in the crazy wind that’s been going on today!

Until next time friend’s! ~*

Getting all Creative ~*

Good evening friend’s! how is life? I hope y’all are doing good, I know that so far everything is working out well on my end, even if my procrastination has excelled to new limits of recent times!

Some of you might not know this, in fact, I don’t think I have ever mentioned this in the past but maybe of some recent posts some of you might have learned of an artistic side that I have kept secret for a while. I don’t do stuff competitively by any means but I do enjoy delving in and out of it as a therapeutic hobby.

One of my latest creations which I am excited to share with you comes from a society I joined at my university at the beginning of the year; the rock society. They opened up a competition where the members have to design a poster for a social – a night where we all hang out together with alcohol and good music – that is coming up soon. The theme is Ladies of Rock and somehow I was inspired and hashed this out!


Now, out of excitement and encouragement from my folks, I decided to post it on here since, even if I don’t win the competition, I am still impressed by how this turned out. I usually paint so Photoshop is still a program that I am trying to get my head around but I think this is definitely a step-up from my earlier stuffs.

Anyways! I just wanted to share this with you and see what y’all thought. Goodnight for now friend’s ~*

A new Adventure… ~*

      Good evening friend’s! I realise it has been a while since my last post… maybe a couple of months but quite a lot has happened since then and I’m ready to share those things with y’all so let’s get started!

After only revising for my exams before Christmas due to the accident I managed to do epically in my grades and got solid 2:2’s for everything so the 2nd semester of third year is already looking good. Onto the good stuff now! my next adventure in life so to speak!

Today I signed a lease on a flat with one of my flatmates from this year and so we shared the excitement of not being homeless or having to stay in student halls once more. The flat that we have gone for is beautiful and so cosy, I will be posting photo’s when we move in, in July but just signing the lease makes me realise even more that I am an actual adult and responsible for so many thing’s, some of which I am still unaware of.

    As for the internship idea that I had before, I decided to give that up as I had to chip in to buy another car after the accident I had before Christmas so my plan now is to work full time over the summer and save up for something exciting to do next year.

   So, that is pretty much everything up to date in the life of me, until next time friend’s! ~*
