(Very) Late Post: Giants in Liverpool

So I have quite the treasure trove of posts that I’ve written up which have never seen the light of day. I wish I could provide a reason why this is the case, but there really isn’t one. Anyway, it seemed unfair to be holding on so tightly to these posts and never sharing them. […]

Playing Tourist…on a Work Permit?

Y’all, guess where I’m typing from? Bermuda! Yes, Bermuda. The very place at the tip of the mysterious triangle – and my home base for the next 8 weeks. **Also little side note: the picture is of my view from my apartment! Mind you, I’ve only been here for a week, meaning that I have […]

Playing Tourist: Cologne

It’s an expectation now that whenever someone finds out that I go to university in Liverpool, but am from a country known for sand, sun and sea, that their first question is: “Why Liverpool?” If I’m to be completely honest, I don’t even know why I chose Liverpool except that I wanted to follow my […]

Chinese New Year in Liverpool

Fun fact: it has been about 500 days since I ran away from a hurricane, and moved to a city that is 4,000 miles from where I grew up. Oddly enough, I have written about most of the places I’ve visited since starting this blog (with a couple more still waiting to be released from […]

Playing Tourist: Shanghai – Part 2

Playing Tourist: Shanghai – Part 1

Honestly, the best big decision I’ve ever made in my life thus far was choosing Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) as my university. To say that I had an utterly boring, dull and unexciting first year would be a lie. I mean, how can you possibly complain about a first year that involved your university […]

Playing Tourist: Dublin

Yes, Dublin! This post is brought to you by the wondrous hospitality of my Irish family. If you’re wondering, when did I get Irish roots, I’ll save you the trouble and let you know that I don’t. Or at least I think I don’t. Anyway, if you recall one of my really old posts, Playing […]

My Not-So Annus Horribilis

Sometimes, being alone with your thoughts is one of the best things you can do. Up until today, you could not possibly convince me that 2017 was not total trash, or as Kingsley said, it was “disastrous and negative.” I hated it – absolutely hated it. I was even ready to refer to it as […]

A Merry Little Christmas

Wow. It’s been over a year, and what a year it has been. No, I’m not going to start off with a long apology and reasons (or excuses) as to why I haven’t been here for a while, that’s an entirely different post for another time. What I am here to talk about on this […]
