    My First Ever Solo Trip To London

    At the start of the year, I took my first ever solo trip to London. I’ve had day trips to London by myself in the past but never actually stayed there on my own. I thought I would share the whole experience because it was something totally new to me. In the end, I really enjoyed this experience and I’m glad I did it. MY FIRST SOLO TRIP TO LONDON I’ve mentioned in past blog posts that I’ve really been pushing myself to go out and experience new things even if it means I have to do that on my own. I’m quite an anxious person so going out for…

    Visiting Dippy At The Kelvingrove Museum

    Dippy the Dinosaur is a plaster cast model of a Diplodocus carnegii. For over one hundred years it stood in the entrance hall of the Natural History Museum in London. But recently the powers that be in the museum decided Dippy had to be replaced. As part of this process, Dippy then went on a three-year farewell tour of various museums around the United Kingdom.

When I found out it would be travelling to the Kelvingrove museum in Glasgow I just had to go along and see it for myself one last time. DIPPY THE…

    Looking Back On 2018 & My 2019 Goals

    2018 has been a year of changes and trying out new things. For once I’m not going to say that really cliched 2017 feels like it was just a month ago. I’ve packed a whole lot of stuff into the year. But honestly, I’m having an existential crisis over the fact 2020 is just a year away. LOOKING BACK ON 2018 UNIVERSITY One of what I would consider the biggest things about 2018 was the fact I got a place at university. I’ve been working towards this goal for so long. Its strange knowing I’m now at this point. Looking back just a few years ago I didn’t think I…

    A Festive Evening In Glasgow

    A few days ago I headed down to Glasgow to meet up with some friends and check out the Christmas Market in George Square. It turned out this was the perfect way to get in a Christmassy mood, I love seeing Glasgow with all the lights and Christmas music playing. So here is what I got up to. STACK AND STILL After meeting up with my friends in Central Station we decided to have a quick bite to eat. It can be quite hard finding somewhere for food in Glasgow because there is so much choice. So I suggested Stack and Still, a new restaurant I had seen an advert…

    Getting Rejected From Glasgow School of Art

    In December of last year, I started applying to university, one of the places I applied to was Glasgow School of Art. If you’ve read the title of this post you may already know that I didn’t get a place. A lot of people assumed I was going to be quite upset about this but honestly looking back I’m quite happy about the whole situation. I should also point out right now, I have a place on a course. Don’t feel mad for me getting rejected (cause I’m not). APPLYING TO GLASGOW SCHOOL OF ART In going to start by explaining how applying to art courses work because it’s a…
