Scotland Trip: Edinburgh and the Highlands

Scotland of all places? I knew when I came to Europe that I wanted to visit all the most perfect sounding tourist destinations that I possibly could while I was here. From America, travel to other countries is so much more expensive than here in the UK. The idea of getting to Paris in only a couple hours still blows my mind!

I Stood Awkwardly at the Back of a Labour Party Election Campaign Launch So You Don’t Have to.

As I took my place at the back of the most un-apologetically socialist crowd to gather since Billy Bragg headlined the Leftfield stage at 2017’s Glastonbury, I tried to decide how I would approach Labour’s election campaign launch. Would I be an unbiased, diligent and ruthless student journalist? Or would I be a Labour supporter, excited to see Jeremy Corbyn’s address in the flesh?  Unable to...
