Hi everyone! My name is Simona, I am a first year International Business student from Slovakia and I am a new Loughborough University blogger!
I originally come from Russia, the land of bears and babushkas, but grew up in Prague, which conveniently qualifies me for Russian-Czech spy outfit as go-to fancy dress.
So here goes, my last blog! For a whole year, I have been (I hope) mildly entertaining with my tips and stories from my first and second year at Loughborough. To honour the crazy year I have had, I thought I would share some of the highlights of my blogging year.
Happy New Year to you all! To celebrate the new year, a friend from the US came to visit. We first met during my trip to Thailand in June, where we only had a few hours together. Little did we know that we’d be reunited so soon.
Happy New Year Everyone! A New Year often means ‘New Year Resolutions’, or in other words a fresh start. In these past few years I have come so far from freshers; learning about film and theatre at Loughborough and on my study abroad at Curtin University, Australia.
I have a deep fascination with clocks and how people for centuries have tried to precisely measure time. The intricacies of watch and clock making are not only for me well crafted, meticulous instruments of time keeping but beautiful instruments of science.
This month has absolutely flown by! I’ve definitely got caught up in the chaos leading up to Christmas this year but it’s also probably something to do with the fact that my boyfriend and I spent 2 weeks of it on holiday, but my gosh that was much needed!
We are literally two weeks in to December and I have already been a super Christmas cliché.
Its coming to the end of 2017, and with that comes some (willing or not willing) reflection on how the past year has gone.
I think we can all agree that 2017 went by in an absolute blur. I swear that it was only yesterday that we were ringing in the New Year with a lot of champagne and a very bad rendition of Auld Lang Syne!
