The End of The Beginning

And here we are. Back at the beginning. I guess this is where my story has brought us to. After New York it was pretty simple, I applied for a direct transfer from my course and looked forward to studying what I truly love- English. I spent the rest of that Summer unemployed, slowly going... Continue Reading →


New York

New York felt like a dream. An enormous concrete monstrosity that beckoned me with its sirens. I don’t want to sound cliché, I don’t want to sound cheesy, but there’s no way of describing that city without doing so, I think in that sentence alone I finally understood what Nick Carraway was talking about. It... Continue Reading →


No, not the TV show. As my first year of college drew to a close, I felt lost. Not just literally from the course I was in, but I felt I had also lost a little of myself along the way, I was supposed to have loved this, this college course, this year. Instead, I... Continue Reading →

All Eyes On Me

I always walk home with one earphone in. I walk under the street lights. I always grip my phone tightly in my pocket, in case there’s someone I need to call. I always look around me, but I never look back. I was never afraid of walking in the dark, until Luke. I met Luke... Continue Reading →

  I had my first heartbreak when I turned 18. I always imagined it to be some loser who forced me to watch The Notebook on repeat and develop an emotional attachment to Ben and Jerry's.

Christmas was a welcome break. And by welcome, I mean I don’t know what I would have done without it. Armed with information on dropping out of college and switching programmes, I spent my Christmas researching, instead of studying as I had no idea of what the next semester would hold. Having so much time... Continue Reading →

Life doesn’t follow a plan

Life doesn't have a plan, or won't follow one. This post will be a little different. I'm not following my plan, because life didn't let me. I planned to tell you, my reader, or whoever out there is reading this, how I came to be here, writing this blog. To do that, I needed to... Continue Reading →

An Impractical Joke

My first semester was when I met Peter for the first time. Of course, along with him came Kai and Simon. But we’ll get to them later. So, where had we left off? Oh yes,  at shit. Zoe had just left and I was dreading returning to college after mid- term without the support of... Continue Reading →

No Returns

October mid- term couldn’t have come sooner. I had had enough change and “newness” at that stage to last me a lifetime. Of course, it was no vacation, the pressure of my first assignments due during that week was looming over me. Developing a true dislike for the course, Zoe and I were dreading the...
