Depression and Anxiety Amongst University Students

Today I’ve got a guest post about depression and anxiety in university students, which is very applicable to a lot of us (myself included). I’ve tried propanolol for anxiety, and I’m currently havign CBT for low self-esteem and derealisation, which have mostly been caused by stress from university / trying to survive in London.

How to Be Ready for the Real World After You Graduate

Today’s guest post is full of great advice for graduates. I graduated this year, but as I’m doing a masters’ degree (followed by potentially a PhD), I haven’t entered the ‘real world’ yet.

5 Things I’m Looking Forward To

I won’t lie, November has been pretty awful. It’s rainy and cold and I’m tired. Greek class is getting me down because it’s so hard, and I’m now stressing about trying to get my essays written before Christmas. On top of that, I was only given three days at work this month, and four days in December, which just isn’t enough money to live, let alone buy Christmas presents. I feel like I’ve done nothing this month except worry and…

My 7 Favourite Teas!

It’s no secret that I love tea. I have a ridiculous tea collection, thanks to my lack of self-control in supermarkets, and the awesome Teatourist subscription box.
