First ever post

The loftiest towers rise from the ground

-Chinese Proverb

As a student, I fully understand the immense difficulty of beginning a task. Whether an essay, presentation or simply tidying your room, the evil grips of the procrastination monster are never far behind our wills and best intentions. So when I decided to begin a blog I instantly recognised the hurdle of my first ‘blog post’, particularly as a blogging virgin.

After much deliberation, I decided writing a blog would entail a number of benefits. The obvious ones come to mind; improving writing skills, a hobby to keep me busy and a way to make a footprint on the seemingly endless stretch of sand of the Internet. But I want this blog to be more than just moaning/ bragging about what I’ve been up to. Therefore, I decided on making it a quintessentially English blog. I’ll write about eateries, drinking holes, entertainment and shopping, all centred around a student budget within this great country. The majority will be linked to Liverpool, as the place of my undergraduate study, however those cities I visit to see family/friends will also be included.
So now the difficult introduction is over, I can begin the excitement of writing a blog.
