    What Happens After Uni?

    After studying History for three years, I now find myself a graduate wondering what the hell comes next? I thought it might be interesting to note what happens after uni finishes. When I asked on a recent instagram poll it seemed that lots people were interested. What happens after Uni: Moving Home I moved out at 18 when I went to University, meaning I have lived away from my parents home for three years. Anyone that has lived in their own flat or house will know that you become accustomed to coming and going as you please. You learn to fend for yourself, cook when you want and what you…

    Forum: Sheffield’s Newest Menu

    If you’re from Sheffield, you will know that Division Street is a hub of quirky shops, independent breweries and bars, and if you’re not from Sheffield, then listen up because you are about to learn something new. Last night myself and Amy were lucky enough to be invited along to Division Street, home of Forum, one of Sheffield’s coolest kitchen/bars to try out the new menu, which will be launching in the next couple of weeks (late April). Today I thought I’d share my thoughts on the evening and recommend the menu if you’re a foodie, and/or vegetarian or vegan! Sheffield’s food scene is strong at the moment, especially in…

However these kinds of skills come quite naturally for a lot of people. I can’t say I found it particularly difficult to build a lovely support network of housemates and course mates who are my kind of people. What is…

    6 Ways to Relieve Stress

    Self Care is a big thing nowadays, everyone is telling you to practice it, and for good reason. Self care is essentially looking after yourself both physically and mentally and making sure you’re in a good place. There’s also a bit of contention around the subject, often due to people’s differing mental health. To some people self care genuinely is sticking on their favourite candle, running a bath or having a walk. Whereas for others it may be a case of removing themselves from social situations which make them feel uncomfortable or severing ties with toxic people in their life. There is no right and wrong way of doing it,…

    What To Take To Uni

    We are fast approaching Freshers week, some new students have already moved into halls but most will be making the move this coming weekend. As if potentially moving halfway across the country isn’t stressful enough you’ve also got to decide what to bring with you to Uni and try to cram it into the car. Now that I’m in my 3rd year I feel like I have a pretty good idea of what essentials you actually need whilst at Uni and what is a waste of money. Over the next couple of weeks I’m planning a Back to Uni series so if you have any requests or questions please let…
