Soon to be featured in a copy of Christ Church’s student newspaper UNIfied. Have a look at previous editions at http://ccsu.co.uk/UNIfied.
First year students… listen up!
The time for finding your second year accommodation has been underway for some weeks, and for many of you, it will be the first time you’ve ever had to go through this type of process.
In mid January, I entered for an annual competition ran by The Independent, held each year to commemorate the death of the late and great Wyngate Harness.
Harness played the role of assistant editor of The Independent brilliantly and was considered one of the best loved figures in the history of the newspaper, a true hero in the world of journalism. Sadly, he died of an inoperable brain tumour in 2008.
First of all, I have to apologise to my blog for abandoning it, basically leaving it in the cold like a little lost orphan. This past month has been absolutely mad with assignments, general Uni work, my job, newspaper deadlines etc. that I really haven’t had the time to sit down and write properly in absolutely ages. But I’m back now so it’s fine.
Nothing else has really happened since I last wrote so I’m not really sure where I’m going with this post – might just be the most pointless piece of writing ever, but I didn’t want anyone think that I’d given up posting on here because I still absolutely love it and have really missed it. However, I want to write about worthwhile topics, and just typing out load of rubbish down for the sake of it (slightly like I’m doing now) seems a bit stupid.
The last few posts have been really boring and merely entailed me banging on about my not very exciting life as a mad, clumsy student with no money.
So I thought it was time to go back to writing something a little more serious, and today I’ve chosen to write a bit about blood donation. Right now, NHS Blood Donation are running a brand new appeal called 100K in 100 days, in which they’re attempting to recruit 100, 000 new donor registrants from 7 November 2012 to 14 February 2013.
