UoS Does Harlem Shake!!

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

So im sure you will all have seen the new video craze! The Harlem Shake!
One person dances rather crazily whilst people do their own business for all of a sudden the bass to drop and then they are all dancing like lunatics! Well today students at Sunderland Uni recorded their own version of the Harlem shake , something which many universities have already done too! It looks like everyone had a blast with it and huge congrats to Vincent White and Matt Chance who directed, shot and edited the video along with gathering everyone there to participate!
Just another day at the University of Sunderland!
Here’s the video!

Pancake Day As A Student!

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Pancake day is something that every student can get behind, even if you don’t like pancakes!

Normally I’m not fussy about pancake day, I like them but I don’t go crazy about them, this year everyone seems to have gone crazy for pancakes!! Lots of my friends were really excited about joining together with their flatmates and friends and just having a good laugh and making pancakes!

The sheer buzz that it created amongst the people I was with yesterday made me really excited for pancakes too! (I realise im saying the word “pancakes” a lot in this post haha!) This was brilliant ! Especially as my flat mate Jon text me just before I finished uni saying some of our friends were over and they were making pancakes and did I want some! DID I EVER!!

So as soon as I got back to the flat we made pancakes and they were so tasty! It was such good fun having everyone over as well and catching up 🙂 And we made awesome pancakes….well Jon did :]

A Day Trip

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

On Sunday I handed in my last assignment for a few months now (my next deadlines are April YAY!!! :D) and to celebrate my boyfriend decided to take me on a road trip :]

Normally im someone who likes to know where we are going, what we are going to etc etc basically I don’t like spontaneity! Which is terrible haha!! But my boyfriend refused to tell me where we were going and im pretty sure he had no clue himself, he just wanted to drive and i was happy to get out of the flat and away from anything Law related! ( I love my course but sometimes you just need a break!)

We ended up somewhere in North Shields, we cant remember where exactly but it was a small village with a castle and a beach…. It was lovely to just walk around and not have to think about returning home and working :] We visited the castle but didn’t go in (it was £4.90 per person!! Since when were castles so expensive to look around!!) but got a few photos outside and of the beach :]

We grabbed a coffee and cake and went sat over looking the beach, it was pure bliss and was a welcome relief after the past few weeks of stress :]

Here are a few pictures of the day too :] My Bf got super excited at seeing the Porsche…can you guess what car I got excited about seeing 😛
