Waking up this morning I dreaded the thought of getting out of bed. It’s still horribly dark outside and the journey into the city centre this morning seemed like a trial itself. Luckily it’s nice and warm in the Scotcampus office and we’ve been treated to muffins and cupcakes by the lovely Snuggle Muffin on Queen St. My non-existent diet went out the window when I tried the carrot cake cupcake and it was definitely worth the calories. On Monday we seen Rihanna post a picture of Tom Hardy for her #MancrushMonday (good pick Rhi) and today is #WomanCrushWednesday! The new trend has taken over social media and we would love to hear who your picks are @scotcampus! My pick of course is the lovely Miss Jennifer Lawrence. J-Law memes are everywhere just now and if you’re a fan you will love this video, happy humpday!
Another funny Female is Sharon Rooney who plays Rae from My Mad Fat Diary. I cannot contain my excitement for the next series of the show! If you are like me and can’t wait for the show to start back next month, or even if you can’t afford to pay your Netflix this month, series one is available for FREE on 4od! Day Two is nearly over and I don’t want to leave this cosy, cake filled office. It’s still raining outside.
It’s my second day here at Scotcampus HQ, and I feel like I’m starting to get into the swing of things. I only hit the snooze button three times before getting up, I managed to climb the five flights of stairs without having to take a break halfway up, and I only had to ask how to use the computer once. Progress, dear readers! Today was a day of two halves. I’ve spent the morning researching the Scottish Independence Referendum, and how it will affect young people. I’m trying to work out how independence will affect things like university fees, post-study visas for foreign students, citizenship and whether we’ll still be able to watch Doctor Who. All the important things! This has meant scouring through the government’s 600+ page white paper on independence, and turning to newspapers’ websites to find out what the government really means. It’s been difficult to try and find unbiased facts: almost every article on independence is an opinion piece either in favour or against. But I’m determined to get to the bottom of it – I think it’s important to be able to make a proper, informed decision when the time comes to vote.
After a rather dry morning, I trotted over to taste some tea and cupcakes at Snuggle Muffin, one of Glasgow’s newest cafes. I stupidly ate lunch before I went there, and was heartbroken to have to turn down the offer of an afternoon tea. Next time! I had a delicious strawberry cheesecake-flavoured cupcake and a lovely chat with the owner, Juliane. I can’t believe she’s just 21 years old and has her own business, such an inspiration. I was also super happy to be able to bring a box full of cupcakes, muffins, brownies and macarons back to the Scotcampus office to share with everyone. Thanks Snuggle Muffin!
