Goals for my final year summer

Been thinking about this since I've been working through every single summer since college and don't even have the savings to back it up. But with my current summer being yet another full one of interviews and full work-days, it makes me wonder how I'll be able to finally enjoy the last long summer I'll... Continue Reading →

Saving Smarter

So I’m sure you’re all aware of the statistics being thrown around that only 50% of young people (aged 20-29) have any savings, and another large chunk of those that do have anything stashed away have less than £1000. Well it seems like no surprise to most as trying to save in the current rental... Continue Reading →

Recent Home Décor Buys

1) This adorable tealight holder from Berts Homestore in Brighton for £5.95 2) This hexagon mirror from Wilko for £5 was my latest find last weekend. 3) This ottoman also from Wilko has been a lifesaver.

We’re Halfway There…

It’s June and that means we are at the turning point of the year. We are halfway there, just one more round of the last few months of life and we’ll be clear of the 20-teens. Reaching this point has made me question what I have been making of this year, and what I need... Continue Reading →

Rent Dreams

A new start for me, a chance to leave all my previous mistakes and move forward with the new and improved version of myself. Getting a studio or one bedroom... Continue Reading →

My outlook for summer is bleak

Now that the end of my placement is right around the corner, the prospect of summer is looking a little dull to me. I’ll be doing some work as per usual to pay my first month’s rent and beef up my savings a bit in-case I end up needing to take my car to university... Continue Reading →

Did I choose the right course?

It would be interesting to know that I rewrote my personal statement and began researching engineering extra-curriculars two months before UCAS applications opened.
