I’m ready for a drama free week…please 🤞🏼

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 🤞🏼

Pouring from an empty cup…

Balliol College dinner 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… Continue reading Pouring from an empty cup…

A week off, a trip to Yorkshire and back to the old stomping ground

9,000 words in the assessment cave followed by the best weekend with my favourites…

This week has been the most uneventful week in terms of actually doing anything. I have been locked in the assessment cave pretty much 24/7, except for a brief trip out to the physio on Monday. This week has definitely been sponsored by the word “relentless”. By Thursday I was definitely running out of steam;… Continue reading 9,000 words in the assessment cave followed by the best weekend with my favourites…

Finally we get a formal! And an entire week crutch-free…

Rowing dinner Tomorrow marks mine and Brian’s 10th anniversary, and to mark the occasion I have had a whole week of walking without him or my crutches.

It’s not all plain sailing with Brian…

Learning about Private Equity is much easier outside I think we need to take a moment to appreciate the great British summer we are currently basking in. I am writing this sat on my balcony, in shorts and T-shirt; welcome to Costa Del Oxford.

Brian is nowhere to be seen; starting new courses; and some big life decisions…

Big news people: for the first time in 7 weeks, I have managed a FULL WEEK without Brian! He is positively gathering dust now in the corner of my room; looking on longingly as I waltz around the place without him. It just wasn’t working between us; I’m too independent and he was way too… Continue reading Brian is nowhere to be seen; starting new courses; and some big life decisions…

8,000 words later we make it through Trinity…part 1

Thank you sunshine 🤩 It was so lovely that the sun graced us with its presence, just as I was crawling out of my assessment hole on Friday afternoon. 12:45pm on Friday, fifteen minutes before the deadline, I submitted my group’s 5,000 word paper, and swiftly went out for a celebratory lunch.
