Finally got my pletter published in the Daily Express Yesterday!

It was such a buz to see my name finally printed in the letters page. I’ve been writing for weeks almost every day!

 Another piece of my portfolio done! Not only that but i have got my short term placement arranged too 🙂


I saw my article on the front page of the Leeds Met today. Not bad for a first piece.

Hopefully more to come!

Costumes ready, alchohol consumed ( lots of it), the night was set to be a fantastic night.

All 11 of us scramble into the lift. 6,5,4,3,2,1 STUCK.  An hour and a half stuck in a tiny box with 10 other people.  Screaming and shouting was inevatible. One girl was epeliptic and was starting to feel the strain within a few minutes. Another was pretty anal at first but  towards the end she was on the floor hyperventilating,. The other, was going in and out of conciousness.

Finally, after calling the ambulance and fire brigade, as one of the girls managed to get a signal, we were set free.

It was intense!

Thankfully, id been stuck in a lift before so knew that panicking just doesnt help and doesnt get the door open anyfaster! But i am pretty caustraphobic myself.

The security was a complete w******, telling us to “shut the f**k up”. That is not how you talk to students?!? Especially those who are stuck in a lift!

There will be sure to be complaints made!

Feeling anti social and quite traumatised by the incident, i think a weekend of going home will do the trick.
