In the early hours of Friday morning, our Granny sadly passed away in hospital. Receiving the news on Friday wasn’t the news I was hoping for. At the grand old age of 94, Granny really had done well. So, amidst all the sadness, today’s blog post is in memory of her. This one’s for you,… Continue reading In Memory of Granny Dryden
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
It’s party time 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… Continue reading After the hardest 50 weeks of my life, we head into the final one…

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!
Submitting the final assignment 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… Continue reading MBA? Completed it…💪🏼
Captured on my walk (not run 😢) 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. Never before seen pics from… Continue reading Happy 1st Birthday to my baby blog 🥳
Final class ever… 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… Continue reading My life would be infinitely better if I still wasn’t in pain…
Lara Croft (not) to the rescue 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… Continue reading I’m ready for a drama free week…please 🤞🏼
