Judy’s Vintage Fair – Glasgow

  Judy’s Vintage Fair came to The Briggait in Glasgow today. This travelling collection of pop up vintage stalls has a good reputation.

10 Realities of University

1. Fitting In Without sounding too proud, I didn’t think this would be a problem as I’m generally quite a chatty, confident person. Little did I know that my first day of Uni would be spent floating around some benches, pretending to read a book in the gaps between classes, desperately looking around for others… Continue reading 10 Realities of University
