When I travel, I have to bring my phone loaded with apps with me. I wouldn’t even think about leaving it at home. Sounds kind of sad and a “classic teenager” type of thing to do, but if I didn’t have my phone on me while I travel alone I most likely wouldn’t be able to make it back to my hotel. Well actually, scratch that. I’d probably be to scared to leave my hotel room without my phone, and would maybe go a maximum of 20m away from the…

Early mornings. When beside each other, two words that I absolutely hate. They’re the definition of restless sleep, alarm clocks, quick showers and contemplating whether or not to eat breakfast in the morning. Which if you didn’t know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and if you skip that then you aren’t doing yourself any favour.

From last week nothing really. I honestly think my face got a little worse from last week, with more red pimples around my forehead and on my…

  University/College is extremely expensive, period. Is there a better word for expensive? Because I don’t think “expensive” even justifies how freaking costly it is to pay for a bachelors degree at university.  Due to the high prices that schools put on courses, lot’s of students don’t even consider applying to college because they know they can’t afford it and don’t want to be paying back loans their entire life. Which is honestly really sad because there’s so many smart people who are held back because the price isn’t right.…
