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”

Expectations and reality of postgraduate study

I’m not here to disappoint you by failing to provide yet another poor quality cartoon drawn by hand on the back side of a reused paper sheet. I don’t know why Squid Game was released when it was released, but I know that its release – and immediate rise to popularity – coincided with meContinue reading “Expectations and reality of postgraduate study”

Visit to University of Sussex campus

Omg, so this was completely incidental. It would’ve been not incidental had I remembered more from second year architectural history lectures. Last Thursday I went to Sussex University campus to sign up at a dental practice, and the architecture there… struck me. I was honestly baffled wondering how anyone could build something so beautiful andContinue reading “Visit to University of Sussex campus”

Visit to Shoreham-by-Sea

Shoreham in West Sussex is one of those funny places that have two hyphens in their name. To distinguish it from other Shorehams, Shoreham in West Sussex is the one by the sea. There’s a Shoreham in Kent, in the Sevenoaks District (I’ve always loved the name Sevenoaks, I don’t know exactly why). So thatContinue reading “Visit to Shoreham-by-Sea”
