This year I’ve decided to share some more serious topics on this blog. I have written a few posts about mental health at university, saving money, and living more sustainably, but I’d like to venture further. To start this off, here’s a guest post about why medical negligence claims are increasing in the UK. I found this an interesting read, so I’ve decided to share it, and just for clarification, these are not my opinions and I am not an…

While I love to share my experiences with student life, this blog is very London-centric. This guest post appeared in my email inbox recently, and I thought it would be great to share it with you. I’ve never visited Nottingham personally, but if any of you live there or are planning to go to university there, I hope this guide is useful! The Best Areas to Live in Nottingham: A Student Guide.

*this is a guest post Brief intro from Emily: A long, rambly post about where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to is coming very soon (hopefully tomorrow), but today is something much more lighthearted. Since moving to London 4 years ago, the one thing that has been missing from each of my homes is a garden.

I often like to bring along a vapouriser with nicotine-free liquids when we go out, because it…

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.

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. Many of my friends are struggling as graduates at the moment – it’s hard to find graduate-level jobs that don’t also require years of experience. Soon enough I’ll be in the same boat, so here’s some advice that I hope is helpful for you… and future me!…
