Sometimes it feels like there’s a deadline looming around every corner, especially at this time of year. Almost all of my semester one deadlines are in the week leading up to Christmas.

They’re on my mind so much that it feels like the clock counting down the ‘sleeps until Christmas’ in the city centre is actually just counting down to my deadlines. With so much hard work to come, it’s comforting to know the Christmas break will eventually arrive and offer time to chill out, relax and prepare for any January exams.

I‘m a first year Film and TV Production student and I love all things cats, comedy and crime drama. You’ll usually find me cradling a mug of tea (and a cat when I’m at home) and binge watching my favourite crime shows on Netflix. I’m a keen volunteer and a member of the Drama and M.A.D (Making a Difference) societies.
