My 2022 Paris Travel Diary

Being back in an airport for the first time in three years was a bit of a surreal experience. Having seen so many videos of lengthy security queues, I was prepared to wait for hours unlike in 2019 but overall I was just so excited to be going on holiday abroad again. It was no…

It’s Been a Blur

This past year (and a bit), since I last posted on my blog, has been such a rollercoaster that I didn’t know which way was up half of the time. Between studying (and subsequently graduating), working and moving flats I’ve barely had time to collect myself and my thoughts until now. For me, life has…

If I Knew Then What I Know Now

I don’t write nearly as many “progress update” blog posts like I used to so that’s a good sign right? It haven’t stopped trying to ‘better’ myself, it just feels like a significantly leas daunting task now. On occasion if I’m having a hard day, I write out my rambles that are weighing on my…

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…

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…

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…

A Somewhat Independent Woman

It’s been too long since I actually published any sort of life update blog post. That’s not to say that I haven’t started writing many at 3am when I haven’t been able to sleep but none of them have made it past the ramble stage and onto publishing. I still can’t believe that it’s been…

Three Days in Amsterdam: A Guide

Amsterdam is such a beautiful city and I fell in love with its uniqueness. It was the last stop on our interrail trip so by the time we arrived, I was exhausted from travelling. Due to this and a number of other factors, I was stressed the majority of the time and that perhaps prevented…

48 Hours in Budapest: A Guide

As we lost a day to travelling, we only got to spend little over 48 hours in Budapest, the first stop on our interrail trip. I was super excited to explore the city so I was gutted when our flight was delayed and we missed out on time there. Budapest is absolutely gorgeous and I’m…
