The End of an Era…but not my own

Last week I was in Keele working for KUSU Marketing during the graduation week for the latest batch of Keelites who are leaving the bubble. Among these lovely people is a dear friend and predecessor to Programme Controller, Amanda Kearney and Tim Palmer.

Working for graduation, and watching all the ceremonies, made me realise that I am at Keele for a serious purpose. It’s not just my own little world away from Wythall, where I have practically built up my entire life. One day it will end, and I will have to work to leave with something. The year I am going into now will be the final year of my undergraduate degree. Where did the time go?

Last week my beautiful girlfriend Eleanor came up to visit. I tried to give heran entertaining week including Sushi, Stratford, Sea-life centre (there seems to be an S theme going here) introduced her to Sophie in Solihull (continuing the S theme) and generally just hanging out. It was perfect and i didn’t want her to leave. But again, where did the time go? The week seemed to fly by, and hopefully next week I’ll get a little bit of time off to go down and see her (fingers crossed).

In other news, I am working non-stop desperately awaiting pay day, all going well I will be out of my financial woe by the end of July 🙂

Mills Newsagents has provided me with employment since I was 14, starting off as a paper boy, and then as a ‘Customer Service Colleague’. Mills was more than work, it was fun, more for the colleague company rather than anything else. Now I have returned something has changed… Continue reading


If I have learnt anything over the last 5 years is that times change, quickly in some cases, and the lesson I have to take from this is it is impossible to live in the past, live in a constant motion. Life changes too quickly. One sentence, just two words can change an entire life time, can change entire plans that you can have in your head.

Sometimes it is hard to deal with change, and sometimes it is amazing. Sometimes it is for the best, sometimes it is for the worst. I guess what I am trying to say is, you always have to constantly live in the moment, because it will just fly right by.

Many many things have changed in my life, especially in the last five years. On reflection, during the transition of any change, most of the time I initially hate it, change traditionally terrifies me at first instance, making me cling to the norm. But it is important to realise that change Continue reading
