When I was four years old, my parents took me to an educational psychologist…

The Arch-Enemy returns.

Yesterday was a busy day for me. I did some coursework, packed my stuff and went to the Christmas Party. My dad and I then travelled to my home in Birmingham. I wake up this morning, confronted by my arch-enemy: Snow. I’m grateful that my dad suggested that I came home last night and not on Saturday, which was the original plan because now I am safe indoors away from my […]

Christmas Party!!!

It’s nearly Christmas and my uni breaks up next week, every year they throw a Christmas party… with Sock Puppets. I’m really excited to see what they have in store for us this year! Sock puppets!

But a few years ago, I struggled to open the lid from kettles, particularly if I was refilling a freshly boiled one. For one thing, it was heavy, and another I couldn’t grab the lid that well. It often took me a few minutes to pull the lid apart and fill it […]

Manchester

I am in my final year at the University of Derby and so have been looking at MA’s in Screenwriting. My lecturer recommended Manchester, saying that it had a good reputation for a new degree.
