October 2023

This was a very busy month, with us moving to Oxford for my studies. I only had time to read 2 books and visit 3 places, we went twice to London and Liverpool. I’m enjoying the crazy schedule, but I have to admit at first it was a bit overwhelming. I have things scheduled almost […]

September ended so quickly. We visited a lot of places this month and we did a lot of shopping as well. I need new clothes for university, so we went shopping a few times, including for evening dresses for Formal Hall (dinner). Firstly, I will talk about a memorial in Rochdale, that was on my […]

Timothy Snyder: The Making of Modern Ukraine

Today I am going to talk about Timothy Snyder: The Making of Modern Ukraine course on YouTube. I didn’t think I will blog about this course because it is a 23 lectures long Yale Course, you can find here. I imagine it will be a focused course which due to its length and topic might […]

June 2023

British volunteers are working in Ukraine and are being targeted by the russian army. As usual, I will start with a short paragraph about the war.
