As much as I want to cry myself into oblivion for all the things I'm not getting to do, I figured a better use of my time would be to look for the positives, no matter how small. I have a home with a study and lots of books, I have no children, I have … Continue reading The Quarantine Diaries: Wins
I can't believe it's been four years since I started this little blog. I remember it as if it were yesterday, sitting in the Uni library fretting that I only had a couple of months to go before my second last year was over and I created Adventures of a Perpetual Student to document it. … Continue reading Happy 4th Birthday!
It's currently 5:10am. Woke up wide awake a bit after 2am and didn't know what was happening. I've been so tired lately that I've been sleeping through the night and I cannot remember the last time I had an insomniac episode. Naturally, I returned to writing.

First things first, my last post was officially my 100th post! Woo hoo! I think I'm happy with it, or maybe I believed I'd posted more. Anyway, here's to another hundred. Monday was the recommencement of the Monday study sessions in town. My Italian class starts back next week, so I used this time to … Continue reading Another Day in the Library
Yesterday was the first day I finally felt better, and to crack on with my every growing pile of work. So, naturally a study-date was called for. Unfortunately, the uni is still in Christmas holiday mode, I arrived on campus and found the library open but no coffee outlets, no food, and empty vending machines. … Continue reading First Study Day of 2019
As I announced a few weeks ago, Amazon Academy was returning to Scotland for a second year, and bringing the Author Academy along again! March 17th was a perfect day for the event (not least because I was on a holiday from work, but I'd submitted my third assessment a few days prior), the sun … Continue reading Amazon Academy KDP Year 2
