City Sound Project 2014

Exams loomed at the start of May but revision came to a brief pause for the return of the city’s biggest music festival City.Sound.Project, which saw the likes of George Ezra, Gorgon City and Blood Red Shoes storm stages all across Canterbury.

It’s July and can you believe the sun is shining?! ☼ ☼ ☼

This past month has been a bit up-and-down. A few weeks ago I decided to get a nose piercing, which has now gone after I accidentally knocked it out a week later. One Friday I had arranged to go for lunch with my best friend, and to cut a long story short, it concluded with me sat on a bench in the local piercing shop with a needle going through my nose.

When in Rome, literally.


With my holiday history on record, it’s obvious I am certainly not a well-travelled individual, primarily down to my constant lack of money and terrible organisation skills. I’ve been to France and Germany a few times and I’ve even visited Greece on a couple of occasions before it got economically flushed down the toilet. However, until last Thursday, I hadn’t actually been on a foreign holiday with my family for 11 years, so when my parents suggested a trip to Rome to celebrate their 25th Wedding Anniversary, naturally my brothers and I jumped at the chance.

I’m back! You poor unfortunate souls.

I finished my exams yesterday, and suffice to say, it’s pretty unbelievable to think that we’ve reached the end of this academic year already.

If anything, I have learned in these last few months that time flies when you have deadlines to meet, and hopefully that’s a lesson I’ll bear in mind when it comes to writing my dissertation next year!

I think I may be the worst blogger in history. I think if I want to be a writer, I’m going to have to start coming on here more. Anyway, I’m here now. Hello. How’ve you been. Nice to see you again. etc. etc.

It is August, as you can probably work out for yourself by looking at the title of this post. August 10th 2012, which seems mad. How is it August? How? How did this happen? Where has the year gone?

Happy June! Now it is officially summer (well, sort of – it officially kicks off on 21st June but let’s for the sake of it, pretend that it is), any normal, sane person would expect the sun to be shining, the BBQs to be sizzling in gardens, the air to smell of flowers and cut grass, the trees to be blossoming beautifully, people to be smiling, laughing, and having a great time.
