I turned 25 – 2023 is here (duh)

Yeah, I know, surprise! As I’m writing this, it’s just past 10pm and I’m sitting on a Southern train to Brighton from East Croydon. I spent the last two weeks in Poland, mostly chilling at home, buying books, drinking coffee with various people in various places, and marvelling at how brown, grey, and yet stillContinue reading “I turned 25 – 2023 is here (duh)”

Varsity jackets, sunsets, busy autumn

As you might have noticed, lately this blog has been mostly personal updates rather than actual 🐺🍧 cσ𝓝ⓉẸN𝕋 🐠😝! The reasons for this are multiple… I’ll recount the most direct ones. A) Almost two months ago I started teacher training which finally filled my days with lots of hours of supervised work and got meContinue reading “Varsity jackets, sunsets, busy autumn”

Wales trip, pumpkin cold brews

Hello folks, it seems I’m going back to the record lows of the frequency of my posting on this website! What can I say? I’ve been pretty busy, having started my first school placement on September 26th and making the most of the remaining summer weather in the meantime. Now that summer’s officially ended andContinue reading “Wales trip, pumpkin cold brews”

My London

NB to start with: I don’t live and have never lived in London. ‘My London’ is the idea of London as it exists in my mind – the prevalent idea that allows me to like and not hate it – and the parts of London that I like to visit in London, the parts ofContinue reading “My London”

How I really feel about Brighton

Dear friends and subscribers (though feel free to consider yourself my friend if we’ve ever engaged in any sort of exchange of comments or messages, isn’t this what everybody does now in the era of Facebook friends and followers?), thank you for your patience and apologies (or you’re welcome?) for not posting for a fewContinue reading “How I really feel about Brighton”

Writing from the basement

I often write posts on here from a basement. It’s a basement at Pavilion Parade, Brighton, because it’s a place where you can sit down and it’s pleasant and isn’t a beach so you can use a laptop. The other place where you can sit down and it’s nice is the beach, but it’s notContinue reading “Writing from the basement”

Brighton Half-Marathon 2022

Oh, what a day it has been. Fresh from the outdoors and inside my flat now, I’ve just returned from a day out that began at 4.30am when I woke up, through 5.33am when I boarded the 25 bus and 6.09am when I turned up at the volunteers’ tent, to 2pm when my volunteering jobContinue reading “Brighton Half-Marathon 2022”

Personal update 17/2/22

It’s wild that my last post is from 20th January, since I’ve had so many ideas for things to write about and have been collecting so many photos and images to illustrate all these things. I guess it’s the tiny bit of perfectionism in me that doesn’t let me finish a post without getting everythingContinue reading “Personal update 17/2/22”

My Brighton adventures with design

When you start a new uni, you want to show others what you do and get that clout to wear it around your street. At least unless you go to a uni that you think is below what you are capable of. (My advice: always go to the best place you can go to). EitherContinue reading “My Brighton adventures with design”
