Now that I’ve started winding down from university, and namely living around universities, I’ve been thinking about what I’ll most miss about that atmosphere. Potentially the first in a series. A photo from the main Wantage building across the second quad to the second set of room where we stayed as first years. Walking to … Continue reading 8 Things I’ll Miss About Reading Town

Is it really already Friday? Phew. Time to catch up with our weeks in 7 Quick Takes. ~1~ This week, at least for me, has been one of promotional work for Reading Uni. Wednesday and Thursday were photo and film promotional shoots which will end up on the website and possibly the prospectus; whereas today … Continue reading Quick Takes Friday about Etiquette, Chilli Chicken, and Alex Being Promotional
Photo of the Week: Rooftops
So, last Friday was May Day. I may have mentioned that we were up the clocktower singing, and now you get a snapshot of what it's like to be up the top there, campus-facing not quad-facing. 🙂
Photo of the Week: Snow!
Don't look at me like that. I didn't miss yesterday's post. That wasn't me; that was someone else... xD Time got away from me, I'm afraid, and it's already slipping through my fingers.

Photo of the Week: Star-Faced
Don't even say a word about it. We know my reasons for not posting or the Tuesday or the Monday, but I wanted to share a photo of the week nevertheless. Plus, a couple of long blog posts can wipe me of other writing ideas for a bit. Anyway, these pretty little star-like flowers hug … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Star-Faced
