This post is slightly late, I know, but I've been super busy ever since Golden Week ended, what with experimenting slightly with lesson plans and trying to find some resources. It's harder than you think, you know! However, Golden Week was really fun! My Golden Week arguably wasn't as exciting as others, but I explored the city around me and I loved every minute of it.
It was about 4:45 in the morning when I landed, so Beijing was in complete darkness. Or, rather, it would be if it wasn’t for the thousands of lights that were simply mesmerising as the plane kept declining ready for landing. There was no way my face was coming away from the window. This was the moment I slowly began to fall in love with China and I hadn’t even set foot on the ground yet.
I made a post on how to control your finances whilst you're at university. Today I'm going to continue that theme and give you guys 14 tips on how you can take even more control over your finances! These tips cover various different areas of daily life at university - food, travel, shopping and studying.
I'm no finance expert by any means, but taking care of my finances is something that I spent a lot of time doing over the course of my time at university. The one thing that a lot of people dread about moving to university is the fact that they suddenly have to deal with finance and look after their own money. It's quite a scary thought, so I'm here to give you advice on what to do!
The first week of university is exciting, but it can also be a little stressful. It's somewhat strange to some Freshers, for they don't know what to do. They may feel lost, particularly without the guidance of their parents that they've had for the rest of their life. So, this post is here to help you get organised and make sure you do everything properly for a great start to university life!
It's been a couple of months since I last posted an update, so I feel like it's time to get you all up to date. I realise that it may look like I've been doing absolutely nothing for the blog, but that's far from the truth!
Korean BBQ - it's a dish I've longed to have since the moment I heard about it a good few years ago. I thought I'd have to go to Korea to experience this, but, nope, I was wrong. I could experience it as local as Leeds city centre. At the back of the Merrion Centre just opposite the First Direct Arena is probably my new favourite restaurant - Bulgogi Grill.
