Where has the time gone? 

I feel like I’ve totally neglected this blog, so here goes… 

A lot has happened since Scotland. I went to Amsterdam last weekend, which was beyond sick. 

Mainly, I’ve gotten too attached to Liverpool and more attached to the place that I spend...

I’m sorry for not posting a blog last week. I was pretty busy. Ewart introduced me to a couple of people who I had a Skype call with last week. With that and my work for JUMP and working to organise the presentations I’m going to have to give in York, I’ve been almost...

A difference that I’ve definitely observed is in the use of sarcasm – I feel it’s used a lot more back home. When people ask “so why were you in Canada?” I’ll be tempted to make a sarcastic remark such as “looking for moose” or “just fancied an extended summer holiday”...
