At Home With Me: My Student Flat in Edinburgh

I know that all of us have been staying inside as much as possible recently. It can sometimes feel particularly lonely at times so I wanted to write a blog post that gets you out of your space and invites you into mine. My bedroom is where I’ve been spending excessive amounts of time and…

My Second Year of Studying Music Technology

When at university, traditional subjects of small talk involve what year you’re in and what you study. As a third year student of Music Technology, these topics usually encourage the question of, “I’ve never heard of that, what does it involve?” To which I then assure the opposite party that it is not as cool…

As Freely as I Love Others

“In 2019, I hope that I treat myself with respect and realise that I am worth more than I make myself out to be. I hope that I become unapologetic for who I am and stop saying sorry so much. But most of all I hope for 2019 to be the year of self-validation where…

How to Spend 48 Hours in Hamburg

Despite being one of the largest port cities in Europe, Hamburg was never a place I knew much about before visiting. As a mid-way point between Berlin and Amsterdam, it made the perfect stopover on our interrail trip and we took a couple of days to discover the city’s gems. Unfortunately due to the grim…

Unwrapping my Spotify Unwrapped: The Songs that Defined my 2019

I started using Spotify in April 2019 so this is my first experience with Spotify Unwrapped. It was somewhat of an eye-opening experience because I never realised how blind I was to my own listening habits. My top songs often took me back to a specific place at a specific time whether I was interrailing…

Three Perfect Days in Vienna

Due to the nature of our interrail trip, we only spent three days in Vienna but each one of them was perfect. There are so many things to do and we definitely had the perfect blend of being tourists and living the life of a local by visiting some of the lesser known spots. Like…

There Will be no Miracles Here

“There will be no miracles here.” This is a great kind of quote for me. It’s not particularly thought-provoking or inspiring but it does match up with the realistic way I want to think about life. I don’t believe in miracles, fate or destiny but in the fact that things happen as a result of…

Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail: A Nationwide Hunt Across Scotland

Scotland recently had its first nationwide art trail going by the name, ‘Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail,’ counting decorated statues that are based off the classic cartoon character. They say to write about your passions in life and over the past couple of months, I have become very passionate about Oor Wullie’s Big Bucket Trail….

Coffee in Edinburgh: Strumpets

I believe that Strumpets is a true hidden gem in Edinburgh serving delicious coffee. Tucked away on William Street in the West End, the light blue facade brings a pop of colour to the Georgian New Town. With a large range of teas, coffees and hot chocolates as well as plenty of food options, it’s…

A Whistle-Stop Tour of Prague

Prague is a city that oozes charm and history, meaning it’s incredibly pretty to look at. Walking along the streets, it reminded me of Edinburgh as it feels more like a town rather than a capital city. So many of the major sights are within walking distance of each other making the city pretty easy…
