Little Plastic Straw, Where Art Thou?

We live in a society that is growing conscious of the harm we do to this planet and how we can reduce it. And that’s great! We only have one planet. If this one goes down the drain we and our future children cannot decide to move to […]

Mothers Day and Feet

In the UK, it is mother’s day today. On Friday, I went around my university city with my mom. We went to cafes, the arcade, a bit of window shopping and stayed out until 9pm. I introduced mom to her first mocktail and we learned to never eat at […]

Chuck – Better Call Saul (Spoilers)

Ok, I love Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad. Great TV shows, great plots and my all-time favourite, great characters. I don’t usually talk about my favourite TV shows, so this is not going to be a regular thing, but I need to talk about Chuck. Chuck is […]

Disability at University

I think I’m lucky. The University of Derby takes disability into an enormous amount of consideration, that doesn’t mean they’re perfect; they still have to stop their delivery vans from blocking disabled bays, but they’re very supportive. When you look at universities, there should be a Disability Team […]

DSA Assesment – my second journey

Hi guys, sorry for not posting on Friday and Sunday, I’ve been a little busy. Today’s post is about DSA. DSA is the abbreviation of Disabled Student Allowance. When I first started university, I had the DSA assessment and was given a bunch of equipment. Some helpful, some not […]

Bearing Disability: Bad Hair Day? Make Life Easier

Happy New Years Eve! I hope you all have had a wonderful year, I know I have. I like New Year because it marks the middle of winter, meaning spring is on the horizon. Yes! I’ve got to say, winter is my least favourite season because Cerebral Palsy […]
