“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards”: Reflections on a year that changed my life
This week I moved out of my flat in Oxford for two weeks back at home in Yorkshire. I had an annoying trip to London this week searching for a flat, but alas, unsuccessful. For this weeks blog, I am sharing the final post I wrote for the Business School website. I wrote blog posts… Continue reading “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards”: Reflections on a year that changed my life
I’m writing this fresh off the back of writing my final blog post for the Business School. Do I do anything other than write blog posts? Who knows… Anyway, due to the aforementioned, I am feeling rather emotional and teary-eyed. What a week it has been for emotions: happiness and jubilation mixed with sadness and… Continue reading “I’m not crying, you’re crying”: the most emotional week of the year so far
I actually can’t believe this has been week 50 of 51 and tomorrow heralds the beginning of Capstone week, our final week as Oxford students. It has been another busy one; starting the week in Yorkshire, visiting London twice and kicking off the final parties and nights out. On Tuesday, Jas and I had a… Continue reading After the hardest 50 weeks of my life, we head into the final one…
Welcome to all my new readers… I wouldn’t normally say this, but since the Business School published my last blog post all over its social media last week, I have had an influx of readers. My last post now tops the charts as my most read blog; reaching nearly 1,000 people in a few days.… Continue reading Nearly 1,000 views of the last blog; exciting news and feeling much better…another crazy week!
I read back my post from last week; “MBA…Completed it” and now I realise why I’ve been struck with a virus all this week. The week was so intense: activities everyday, essays due in, parties, trips to London, hosting visitors, that my body, like most of the MBAs at the moment, decided enough was enough.… Continue reading And she spoke too soon…the virus that took down the MBA!
Exactly one year ago today, I happened to be six days into my cycling trip to Vienna. It was a 100km day from Koln to Koblenz. If I think back to that day, riding along the EuroVelo, I wonder if I ever imagined the day one year from now? How different my life is now.… Continue reading MBA? Completed it…💪🏼
Today marks my 70th blog post and the first birthday of “Yorkshire To..” It is wild to think that I’ve been writing this blog for a year now and it has captured everything from my epic bike ride to my year in Oxford. I’m also amazed each week at how many people take the time… Continue reading Happy 1st Birthday to my baby blog 🥳
It’s now been 10 days since my last accident and I am still nursing some painful ribs and back. I can’t tell you how annoyed I am; I really can’t focus on anything else at the moment. The worst thing about this injury; including the fact that it was a stupid, freak accident, is unlike… Continue reading My life would be infinitely better if I still wasn’t in pain…
This weeks blog was meant to be the all-singing, all-dancing, super happy post celebrating the end of Brian. Which is true; it was going to be that until Thursday happened. Thursday went from being the best day ever to “really, not again”… I feel like I’ve become so much more accident-prone these past few weeks,… Continue reading I’m ready for a drama free week…please 🤞🏼
If I wasn’t so stubborn or disciplined or intent on writing a blog post every week, tonight is definitely the night I would have given it a miss. However, in order to capture the full picture of my time at Oxford and the plethora of experiences and emotions I feel, it’s only right that I… Continue reading Pouring from an empty cup…
