It’s been a while since I last updated you, (about 6 months.., but who’s counting..!) and as always, much has happened since then, but I’ll fill you in from the last 2 weeks..
The last 2 weeks have felt a little strange as they mark several anniversaries for me; It’s now been a year since I graduated uni! I still haven’t got out of the student mind-set of doing certain things, like buying local take-aways for dinner most nights… or heading out when we get the chance for a big
I’ve not been in the US too long, but I think it’s time to address this issue of tipping in the States. What is this malarkey all about??
Only last Saturday I was a victim of this tipping culture. The bar-guy thought I wouldn’t notice that he had short-changed me $10… When I went over to ‘remind’ him about his blatant blunder I’m still expected to leave this meaningless gesture of goodwill. Why am I tipping him for doing (or not doing) his job?! I used to naively believe
I know its been a while since I last updated u, but a lot has happened since last time. My internship in Boston finished on Friday, and the office have offered me a full time job!!

I’m starting out tomorrow night, where my cousin and I are driving down
This is the end of life as I know it.

Taxes, mortgages and real jobs….no more missing lectures, student deals, going out on the lash 4 nights a week and stumbling into the café for the recovery fryup; it’s a lot to take in all of a sudden!
I hope people are wrong about Uni being the best years of your life,
alas it seems the only time I get in the mood for submitting something is when I’m recovering; however just as sure as night follows day, and JD follows aftershock, student’s will go on the lash after exams.
I received my student loan with open arms a few weeks ago, but have only been able to abuse it as of last night, with a bar crawl around Liverpool for a modest £20. This was kept at a reasonably low level in part due to the great ethos of our student union, who provide tempt
The pain was whirling around his head like a smooth pint of Guinness.
At first he was bemused, and asking all the usual questions... Where am I? and who’s this sleeping next to me!? Of course the answers were all too quickly coming together; another big booze-up, another sleepover, another splitting headache the next morning!
The first hangover of the year was reining its almighty wrath down upon him. And then his real problems started kicking in. How was he to get home from the wrong
