Fully Sick

So now, we’ve made it. Holidays here we come, no more uni for another year and full speed ahead to Christmas carols, mulled wine and bad dancing on NYE. Goodbye 2016! Except not quite, because as I type this I am lying in bed, sick from a mystery illness. I …

The Final Countdown

It’s almost here! We are almost at the end of the end – that is to say, the light at the end of the tunnel, the Holy Grail, the end of semester, exams and uni for 2016. All metaphors aside, it’s almost the glorious time of year when we can …

#Lochtegate

Welcome to another piece which is not about the Olympics. Apparently, the Olympics continue, but I am really not interested in any sport that isn’t gymnastics, doesn’t feature Serena Williams, or isn’t over in under 2 minutes (nice win Bolt!).

Love Olympics

If i’m completely honest, I haven’t cared about the Olympics since 2000, when I was 7 years old and thought Nikki Webster was the height of cool. I have completely switched off from watching sports, only leaving on the television long enough to ascertain that what I’m watching is, in …

Cat Calling

Walking down King St. the other day, a group of women in a car drove by a group of men, rolled down their windows and wolf whistled. I have never seen a group of men look so confused in my life. Suddenly, the bubble of entitlement which meant they could …
