Skylights, And Why I Hate The Rain.



When I moved into my student house I was so excited to have a skylight in my room. I imagined sprawling out on my bed, gazing up at the stars and working by moonlight for the next day at Uni.

I have a lecture in just over 4 hours and I can't sleep because of the sound of the rain hitting said skylight.

Don't get me wrong, it's not that I can't appreciate the soothing sounds of rain hitting the ground outside when you're snuggled in a warm bed, but when it's pelting it down onto a sliver of glass above your head you can understand my frustration. This weather is just doing my head in and I cannot wait for the rain to go so I can appreciate my skylight once again.

I need my sleep back.

Ode to Tupperware



The tupperware box is the most important thing a student can own.

Okay, I may be exaggerating, but it is currently 3am on a Tuesday morning and my lunches and dinners are prepared for the next few days thanks to the humble tupperware box, and I can't stress how great this makes me feel - currently I'm stressing about the amount of work I have to do for my course this year and it's so refreshing to have just one thing that is in my control. 

My veggies have been pre-roasted, my peppers pre-chopped, my onions pre-diced and my lunches pre-made in an effort to exercise control, so thankyou, tupperware box, for letting me indulge in my ocd habits.

I cannot wait to cook with you tomorrow, oh wonderful tupperware.
