New Year, new Asli

2017 is finally here and as cliché as it sounds, NEW YEAR, NEW ME! *cringes internally* I spent New Year’s Eve doing something completely random.

On the other side of things

Having already completed nearly half of my placement, I thought I would share my experience of being on the ‘other’ side of university life.

Pilkington, my old friend

As ever, the festive winter break went by in a flash. A chilled family Christmas at home, followed by a somewhat-less-chilled New Year’s Eve in Amsterdam, and I was back at Uni before I knew it.

Introducing Imogen

“The best university is the university of life” (Henrique Capriles Radonski) – but I couldn’t imagine my life without what university has taught me!

Winter graduation

Dear my lovely readers, I hope you are all well, and excited for the holiday period. As I was writing this, I was on the train from Loughborough back to London.

Farewell to Tom

Going to start this off by saying this is my last blog entry, so thank you to everyone that’s read it over the last 12 months!

Perks of the placement

I’ve always been one for travel, whether it’s closer to home and a quick camping trip to Wales, or sampling basically every culinary dish I could in Singapore.


Ten years ago, I was at Judo. I was fighting this boy, as we fell to the floor and grappled to score a point I felt an emotion towards him. An emotion that I didn’t understand nor was it explained I should feel this towards another boy.
