Mental Health: Surviving or Thriving at MAC Birmingham & Event Management & Marketing at City Of Birmingham Symphony – Monday 9th October 2017

Hello everyone, Hope you're well. Apologies for not blogging yesterday. I was completely knackered from walking 11.6km (7.2 miles) walking across the city on Monday, my knees were not forgiving andĀ almost packed up and left of their own accord. To be honest, the length doesn't bother me, it's the after-effects I dislike. I feel 93 …

Hello everyone, How are we all? Back again to talk to you about the last day of Birmingham Weekender! Before I do though, I have an admission to make. First and foremost, I knew that lots of effort and manpower had gone into planning an event of this magnitude and I knew it would take …

Hello everyone, How are we all? Here is the next installment of my volunteering weekend at Birmingham Weekender. Enjoy. Today was relatively stationary.

Prince’s Trust: Day 30 (Thursday 11th May 2017)

No-one likes footnoting but equally no-one likes bad footnoting either. I can't talk though, footnotes and I are a bad match, even when I was at uni. I'm keeping busy with …

Prince’s Trust: Day 22 – Day 25 (Thursday 27th April 2017 – Wednesday 3rd May 2017)

Hey everybody! I'm back - apologies for being away! I was slaving over my artwork and now it's finally finished (or at least as finished as it can be given the time constraints) I can finally talk to you about it. First of all, I must say how proud I am of the group for …
