Graduation cards – 4 variations

Let a girl dream and she will make graduation greeting cards, because she herself has not had a graduation ceremony yet. I graduated with a First Class degree in Geography last year, July 2021, from the University of Edinburgh. Because I’ve been in Edinburgh for just over a month now, and I happened to beContinue reading “Graduation cards – 4 variations”

I dated a Brighton map (it’s from 1971)

At Shabitat, a place I volunteer at, I picked up a dated map from the free pile of stuff that we put out outside the entrance. I only pick up maps that are (a) especially pretty or curious, and (b) show the local area. This one is type B. It’s a map of Brighton &Continue reading “I dated a Brighton map (it’s from 1971)”

The Goth-Elderberry twins [The Sims 4]

You know that moment when a totally random townie walks into your Sim family’s house and acts as if they were at their own home, while in your mind these two households live in totally separate universes? I bet you do, and I know I do. That thing happened, for example, when Cassandra Goth cameContinue reading “The Goth-Elderberry twins [The Sims 4]”

[Edit: three months later] After a week of halls

I started writing this post on 3rd October 2021. Now it’s 5th January 2022 and I still haven’t published this, or anything else on the university halls of residence in which I am living this year. That’s a benefit for both of us, though, because now I can tell you more about them – forContinue reading “[Edit: three months later] After a week of halls”

The cursed ‘stocking filler’ (and Tunbridge Wells trip)

Last Saturday I tripped to Tunbridge Wells (also called Royal Tunbridge Wells), which is a regency town just on the edge of Kent. You can get to Tunbridge Wells easily from Brighton, as there’s the 29 bus service (operating what’s called a “Regency Route” because it connects regency towns of Brighton, Crowborough, Uckfield, and TunbridgeContinue reading “The cursed ‘stocking filler’ (and Tunbridge Wells trip)”

Waste self-audit

When going zero-waste, guides tend to tell you to assess your rubbish heaps regularly, usually weekly. Now, I’m not trying to go zero waste as such, but I did propose myself to the University of Brighton c-change department that waste audits could be carried out in student halls of residence. Considering that I see theContinue reading “Waste self-audit”

Toilet gender signs

There was a conversation a few weeks ago on some Facebook group I’m in, I think it was the “International meme exchange” one. It was simply some person saying that they hadn’t known that not all countries use the triangle and circle icons to differentiate between toilets for males and females. I found myself surprisedContinue reading “Toilet gender signs”

We’re talking numbers

Today I want to let you know just how much you mean to me – you, my readers – and this time we’re talking numbers. I got an unusual email in my inbox yesterday – unusual because one, I was not expecting it, and two, because it’s this kind of email that you get onlyContinue reading “We’re talking numbers”
