The Commute

  It begins. The pushing and shoving, hustling for a better vantage point; tutting and kvetching, giving the death-stare. Manners are fleeting, like patience.  No, it’s not another Next clearance sale, or a Black Friday event. It’s not the biblical Armageddon… It’s the early morning Huddersfield to Leeds line.

Staying in hostels when you are not 18 anymore

My student years have taught me I am certainly not 18 anymore. An all-night party makes me tired the day after and I don’t deal with hangovers as easily as I used to. I am 23, sometimes  feeling a little older. It’s ok, being 23 is not too old, but […]
