So that’s a wrap on second year!

The arrival of the summer holidays brought with it the sudden realisation that I am now over halfway through my degree at Loughborough University. June 15th, a massive sigh of relief was heard around the bubble as exams were officially over and it was time to have a whole lot of fun.

Fun in the sun

 The last month has been amazing! Been so good to not have any exams and be able to chill out stress free. At this moment in time results are only a few days away. They turn them around much quicker than during sixth form which is much better.


This is the big moment, three years in the working. There is a sea of proud families to my left, while my geography peers surround me. The weight of my academic gown weighs down on my shoulders as I listen for the cue to start walking across the stage.

Fifteen hundred metres

Back in my awkward adolescent years, the 1500m was my athletic event of choice. I was okay, but never fantastic; I enjoyed, but never loved, and eventually drifted away from the sport.

Timehop down under

My 20th birthday – this time last year – was one that will last long in the memory. The day before (May 22nd), myself and 8 friends jumped out of a plane from 15,000 feet, landing on a glorious beach in Jurien Bay. The day itself (May 23rd), I spent with ten chaps on a […]

Exams at Loughborough explained

Bit of an advance warning, this won’t be the most exciting blog entry you’ve ever read. The last month or so has been exam and revision central for everyone at Loughborough. I’ve had 4 exams so far, with one left in a few days of writing this; struggling for motivation but looking forward to being […]

The sun has FINALLY got his hat on!

All I can say is that this last month has absolutely flown by! It is scary to think that I have actually finished my second year of university at Luff and have handed in my coursework pieces that now count for my final grade. But again, what a month is has been full of sunshine, […]
