Life update

Some random tidbits, see more on instagram @ intothefold

Yo! A slightly more personal post today just to catch up with you all on what's been going on and some feeble explanations for my slightly less than stellar performance in the posting area of life.

As I've said a gazillion times before, I'm currently working on a pretty beastly piece of university coursework which is due in on Thursday, as well as studying for my end of term exams which start in about two weeks (okay, slightly less than that but let's be positive...). But that's boring and I actually signed up for this degree so complaining too much seems counter-intuitive. My course is bad-ass and at least what I'm studying for everyday is something I love. Pros and cons, mes amigos.
Summer is so soon, so that's working as a pretty big motivational reward. I'm hitting up the Dominican Republic, Danmark, Amsterdam and the US this summer as well as hopefully my first ever festival (Bestival! wahey I'm a poet) all with family or friends so I'm really excited to have some downtime and see some new cities! Any tips for 'dam would be very appreciated too!

I realise I've been a bit slow on the writing front, which makes me sad because you guys know I love to write more analytical stuff usually but I've been having to save all that content for the big change coming to the website- all very mysterious, I realise. I'm getting a great group of amazing people together to help push Into The Fold beyond a 'blog' and into something I feel more represents what I want to be doing with this little space, so please do keep your eyes peeled for July when that will hopefully all come together. I don't want to give too much away but if you're on the twitter then you probably have a pretty clear idea of where this is headed. I've obviously picked the most academically demanding part of the year to start on this venture (and a few other personal ventures) but I feel like it's nice to have some new exciting things starting to distract from the impending doom that is the end of my first year of university. I can't actually believe I'm almost done with it, it genuinely feels like yesterday that I tripped over a pile of bins in front of everyone during freshers week. I feel so old!? I can't imagine being away from Bristol for so long over the summer, it's kinda home now.

On another note, rumour has it the weather should warm up this week in Briz and we all know what that means: suns out guns out, lads.


  1. Wow, you've got some pretty incredible holidays coming up, jealous! The change coming to your website sounds really exciting too, can't wait to see more!
