Technological Mishaps

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Hello Friends! I like to think of myself as a tech savvy gal. After all, I’m getting a masters degree in engineering. A few weeks ago I finally decided to see what Bloglovin was all about. Unfortunately, my engineering degree failed me, as it took me *cough* a few weeks…

Stirling Castle

It’s new year, a new semester, and there are loads of new adventures on the horizon. I was actually meant to have an adventure last Saturday – my friends and I were going to travel to the Scottish highlands for the weekend to go hiking and play in the snow. Unfortunately, life happened and I got…

Scottish Weekend Part II

Winter has come. It’s raining outside. I’m snuggled up in a fluffy dressing gown and I have a mug of hot tea next to me. It’s also getting dark around 3:30pm now. Oh yeah, and exams are coming too. But I feel like writing to get all the stress off of my chest. Because as magical…

Scottish Weekend Part I

Last weekend I went on an journey worthy of Bilbo Baggins. Perhaps it wasn’t quite that epic, but I was brave and adventurous and the scenery was breathtaking. How was I brave, you may ask? Well, I went on a two day trip across Scotland with a bunch of uni students whom I didn’t know. To anyone…

5,000 Miles

Change is always a stressful thing, but you know that life is starting to get better when a dancer starts dancing in the corridors again. That, my friends, is a feeling I’ve been missing dearly. I’ve only been here for two weeks, but Scotland has taught me a lot already. At the moment, we’re starting…

Thai Spiced Eggplant Curry

I feel like I must start this post with a disclaimer. This is not an authentic curry recipe. This is an Ailish wanted something spicy, warm, and comforting, recipe. Be warned. It’s delicious. Be warned. Cook your rice all the way before eating. I feel like that last warning really decreases my credibility as a cook. At…

Bucket List

I’ve had a bucket list for quite some time now, however I think it’s more appropriately called a “Things I Never Thought I Could Do but Want To” list. I created it for fun initially. You know, something a bored 20 year old would do while they think about all of the big things in…

Transformations

I wonder how caterpillars feel after they transform into a butterfly. They can’t see themselves or understand that they’ve turned into a beautiful being. All they know is they’re not what they once were. The ground will never scratch their belly as they inch across the earth. Their mouth will never experience the satisfying crunch…

Story of the Storm

Yesterday I woke up to the sound of thunder rumbling overhead. I jumped out of my bed and rushed to the window, childishly expecting to see rain pouring down and flashes of lightning, while my rational side was telling me it was probably just a truck going over a pot hole… again. I opened my curtains…

The Cube Farm ~ A Poem

Hello everybody! I swear I’ve been going on my weekend adventures. I’ve just not been posting about them. I started my internship five weeks ago (omg!) and it’s been exhausting. Waking up at 5:10am every. single. morning. is not my cup of tea. I’m coping though. Actually, something that’s been helping me stay relatively relaxed…
