So much to do, so little time…seeing 2am a little too often and a trip to Lords Cricket Ground

What a week it’s been. Or as one of my MBA friends would say; “it’s been a time”. Too right. Last Sunday seems an age ago, yet it has also flown by so fast. Last Monday Covid restrictions were eased a little, and we were finally allowed to have 6 people indoors, and 30 people… Continue reading So much to do, so little time…seeing 2am a little too often and a trip to Lords Cricket Ground

Brian’s Big Day Out…

What a crew 😍 Tomorrow marks the one month anniversary of our dear friend, Brian. It’s so weird to think that I haven’t used my foot (or leg, for that matter) in four weeks now; and it’s really starting to show. My right leg is looking so skinny minnie compared to my left! It’s partly… Continue reading Brian’s Big Day Out…

It’s tiring being 30 and growing a bone…

Hi Darren 👋🏻 This week I had to accept that the birthday celebrations were definitely over (boo). The decorations and balloons came down (although Darren is still living his best life) and I really had to get focused on school work, as we have somehow come to the end of week 2 already and assessments… Continue reading It’s tiring being 30 and growing a bone…

Welcome to the prestigious 30s club… turning 30 with Brian and a week of new classes

Me. As a cake 🤣 Wow. What a week. It feels like it’s been a complete whirlwind: a mix of emotions; one that has simultaneously flown by but also seems like this time last week was in the last century... So much has happened and as I sit on the sofa with Brian, reflecting on… Continue reading Welcome to the prestigious 30s club… turning 30 with Brian and a week of new classes

I can’t quite believe this week has happened…from feeling on top of the world to a complete wreck

Welcome, Brian This week couldn’t have panned out much worse if it had tried. I literally can’t believe I’m writing this blog post. It weirdly feels like an out of body experience, as if I’m writing about someone else’s life for a week, thinking to myself “gosh, I’m glad that’s not me”. Yet it is… Continue reading I can’t quite believe this week has happened…from feeling on top of the world to a complete wreck

A wholesome few days in Yorkshire and Map the System Semi-Finalists!

The Easter holidays are flying by! We are already ten days in and so much has happened. Thankfully, unlike the Christmas holidays, I didn’t succumb to complete exhaustion so our trip back to Yorkshire was enjoyed to its full extent. Alongside lots of tasty homemade food and Easter chocolate, we threw in some great workouts,… Continue reading A wholesome few days in Yorkshire and Map the System Semi-Finalists!

Happy Easter 🐣🐰 we made it to the holidays…

And just like that, Hilary (or Hellary, as it’s more commonly known) is done and dusted! Celebrating Michaela’s Good Friday birthday! Quite the epic of a term, culminating in a Business Finance exam and submitting our team 3,000 word Capitalism in Debate report. We celebrated Michaela’s birthday on Friday, once all assessments were complete. And… Continue reading Happy Easter 🐣🐰 we made it to the holidays…

🤩 My 50th post! 🤩 The end of Hell-ary is in sight…sleepless nights and making it onto the Dean’s list…

04:35 seems like the best time to finish this book 😂 Half-way through assessments fortnight and we have handed in our GOTO report and presentation slides ahead of the actual presentation tomorrow; completed our “Capitalism in Debate” debate on whether the Alliance for Automobile Innovation should be allowed to lobby the US government; and I… Continue reading 🤩 My 50th post! 🤩 The end of Hell-ary is in sight…sleepless nights and making it onto the Dean’s list…

Hilary by name, Hell-ary by nature…

Ok disclaimer: yes, we are renaming this term “Hell-ary” but let’s all remember I do love it here and I’m enjoying Hellary so much, it’s just a lot right now! Still on the sofa resting the ankle 😫 I can see why normal undergraduate and postgraduate terms are only eight weeks long. They are intense.… Continue reading Hilary by name, Hell-ary by nature…
