Lily: Creature of Habit 🐦

I have just two examinations left to complete before I'm in the clear and able to enjoy my well earned holiday ! *Cue wild and uncoordinated dancing! The papers have mostly been kind to me. Nothing has made me despair or writhe in agony afterwards . Thankfully 😜 . I'm just looking forward to completing what's [...]

Coffee and Sarcasm 😄😍

It was then that Lily knew. That she had chanced upon her soul mate .  .  . It was 9 am and  Lily was standing in a queue to acquire some much needed caffeine to power up for a day that was already proving to be arduous. The queue was unforgivably long and her position in it did [...]

The life of an off-campus student

"Don't you wish you lived on campus Lily? " - If I had a nickel ( rand) for every time someone asked me that question, I'd be able to buy myself a Jumbo box of Astros. I am part of the minority of students in my year who do not stay in residences on campus. The [...]
