Graduating, Again

Despite spending 3 years there, I had no idea that Oxford University gives you an honorary Masters degree about four years after you’ve graduated. Yep. So I now (technically) have two Masters degrees, but no BA, because the MA (Oxon) replaces whatever Bachelor’s degree you achieved at Oxford. Very strange, Continue Reading

Laura Bates – Misogynation

Last Wednesday, I headed back into Oxford after work to attend a talk by Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism project, successful author, and possibly one of the most articulate people I have ever heard speak in public. The talk was held in the Sheldonian Theatre – always lovely Continue Reading

[REVIEW] Sense & Sensibility at the Oxford Playhouse

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be able to watch Sense and Sensibility being performed on stage at the Oxford Playhouse. I went with my mum and we had a lovely afternoon and evening shopping, eating, and drinking before we headed to the theatre. We ate Continue Reading

Five Favourites: 28th February 2016

I’m sat writing this on a lovely Sunday afternoon, sun shining in and curled up on the sofa, safe from the misleading cold of outside. The only downside is that I’m having to watch the football at the same time. Oh well! Keep reading to find out what I’ve been Continue Reading

Oxford in Lights

This is yet another belated post. I seem to be good at these, I just don’t ever seem to have the time when something has just happened! This time I’m harking back to a couple of weeks ago, when Matt and I popped into Oxford for the day. It was Continue Reading

Continuing this series of catch-up posts, I wanted to write a little bit about what has been my predominant occupation over the past few months, namely exams and revising for them. Unfortunately for me, doing PPE at Oxford means doing all of the exams which count for my whole degree Continue Reading

‘Abortion Culture’ and ‘Authoritarian Students’ at Oxford University?

This is going to be a bit of a random post, but it’s something that has much confusion surrounding it, for both those agreeing and disagreeing with what happened. OSFL (Oxford Students for Life) are an anti-abortion group who were due to hold a debate between two men on the Continue Reading

Back to Uni

Today is my second day back at university. I’m all unpacked and settled in, and although I’ve got exams tomorrow, I thought I’d take the chance to write a bit about returning to uni, the time of year, and what that means to me. So as I mentioned, I’ve actually Continue Reading

My 5 Favourite Things This Week

1. My crazily comfy new jumper from New Look (where else? :’) ). It’s a gorgeous deep blue, it’s a size too big, and it’s acceptable to wear in public. What’s not to love?! 2. Tuna mayo wraps, especially with spring onions. I’m not a massive fan of tuna mayo Continue Reading
