7am As a first year Curating and Art History undergrad at York, I start my week with lectures on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesdays are my favourite days because I have my curation seminars. More often than not, we’ll be out of the university on an exciting field trip to a gallery or museum. This particular … Continue reading Wednesday as an Art Historian
Daily schedule As the second year of the second term starts, the intensity of winter blues, work and stress start to increase. To battle this, I start off my day by writing down my schedule. This takes the pressure off to remember important tasks or events that I must attend. After this, I make breakfast … Continue reading A day in the life of a Computer Science student

Morning So it’s 7.30am and my alarm has roused me from sleep, but I’m an optimist so I reset it for 8.15am and drift back off. 8.15am comes around far too soon and it’s a mad dash to shower, dress, grab food I packed the night before (hopefully), and leg it to my 9am lab. … Continue reading Journey Through the Day of an Electronic Engineering Student
