December 2022

update: It’s the first time I’m writing an update like this, but the fireworks in London yesterday were just amazing and I wanted to share a couple of pictures from BBC.

Christmas gifts

Christmas 2022

Christmas this year must have been one of the most curious ones, mainly because of the gifts we bought to each other, my husband and I. As usual, we went for an advent-calendar type of gifts, ranging from some chocolate or the strangest one I got – mix of nails (more on that in the […]

KCL – 1st term

KCL – 1st term of year 3 is officially over today. I’m so happy, especially as yesterday I received feedback for my dissertation proposal which gave me a grade in the 1st class bracket.

Pub Crawl

On our trip to Nottingham we did a pub crawl. We went to 4 places and it was fun. I’m not sure if 4 is a good number or not, but it’s what we did. First it was Ye Olde Salutation Inn, a 15th century pub with heavy metal music. Unusual and so fun, this […]

IWM North - Ukraine

IWM North – Ukraine

IWM North has a beautiful exhibition on Ukraine: Photographs from the Frontline. It shows the work of photojournalist Anastasia Taylor-Lind. It is a free exhibition, until 2nd of January, so well worth visiting. I shared only a few pictures because they are better seen in person. There were quite a few people even if we […]
