We had to run to make it to Glasgow

‘It’s not there. It’s not there! I should go back,’ I said as I started running. I had 15 minutes before the train to ‘Glasgow’ would leave and I wouldn’t be able to get on it without the card I thought I’d forgotten at home. Completely flustered I had checked all the pockets I had but couldn’t find it. About There’s more for you to read!

That one person

There’s hair everywhere. In the bed, in my clothes and at random places around the place. This is something I would have said when I still lived with cats, but the hair comes from someone else this time and it is not my girlfriend’s. I’m the one with the long hair and although I never really noticed the trail I left There’s more for you to read!

Where I’m now, was and where I’m going

On Facebook, I am friends with all the friends and people I know from The Netherlands. Every day I scroll through my newsfeed and every day I get a little glimpse into all of these people’s lives. I’m happy that I get to know a little of how their lives are going. And I’m sad that my life is now There’s more for you to read!

Goodbyes are not forever goodbye’s

All around campus boxes have appeared. I see more parents than ever and slowly, the campus is getting emptier. 9 Months of university have passed and it is time for everyone to move on. It is time for everyone to go home.   Somewhere around the beginning of April, I more or less started living in a different flat than There’s more for you to read!

Summer Ball 2016

Every year there’s a summer ball at the end of the academic year. The ball was kind of ridiculously expensive but I figured I would want to go at least once during my university time and if I were to go now I would know whether it’s worth it for the coming years. Back in September I stayed in while my entire There’s more for you to read!

The coastal path to Borth

Living in Aberystwyth often feels like being on a holiday. I wake up with a view of the sea when I enter the kitchen. Seagulls are a part of the town and the environment gives me this calm sort of happy vibe. During my time here, the more time passed, more and more people started mentioning the coastal path to There’s more for you to read!

Leave this Blue Neighbourhood

In the summer of 2015, Troye Sivan, a twenty-year-old actor, singer, songwriter and Youtuber surprised millions of fans by announcing his new EP WILD, shortly followed by the announcement of his debut album Blue Neighbourhood. Troye kicked off his Youtube career back in 2007 where he uploaded covers until he started making vlogs instead. Whilst he stopped sharing covers, his There’s more for you to read!

Living in university accommodation

Penbryn is located at the centre of campus. Most of my classes are at a 5-minute walking distance, which is incredibly convenient. TaMed Da, the restaurant is downstairs in the same building as our sleeping residences. There is a small communal area on each floor for all of the hallways of that floor together.             There’s more for you to read!

WE WON SUPERTEAMS!

‘Do you remember when we won superteams??’ was the chant that echoed in one’s ear if in the company of one of the members of our team: ‘Our drinking team has a football problem.’ On Monday afternoon, most of us had a hangover or were still drunk from the previous night of celebration for winning what seems to be the There’s more for you to read!

Aberystwyth University Women’s Football Team

After moving away from my old football team, I couldn’t wait to start playing again elsewhere; so much that I stalked their Facebook page and considered messaging them before I arrived. I wanted to make sure I could start playing straight away. It had been 3 months after all… I was slightly afraid that football at university wouldn’t be taken There’s more for you to read!

It’s real

 ‘Are you okay?’ I’m not here. I’m not here.             ‘She’s asleep.’ ‘Malou?’ I can’t hear you.        I can’t hear you right now. From the other side of the counter, she gives me a smile. As I stand there in the middle of the room she picks up her cup and walks There’s more for you to read!
