Welcome to our 2018-2019 team of bloggers
Hi, I'm Bethany and I'm in 2nd year studying philosophy and psychology. I am most likely to be found with a cup of tea in the library, or exploring the area around Edinburgh.
Hi, I'm Bill, a 4th year Philosophy student. I love: logic, good design, t-shirt weather, and chopping up onions with a really sharp knife. I hate: cold mornings, mangetout, a lack of routine, and stepping in something wet with your socks on.
Hello! I'm Cécile, a 23 years old French postgrad student. I'm in the Applied Linguistics programme. I did my undergrad in Linguistics in the south of France but came to Edinburgh as an exchange student for my final year. I loved this city so much that I decided to come back! I love travelling, hiking, cinema, music and yoga, among other things!
Hello, I'm Poon from Thailand. I'm in my 3rd year studying cognitive science. I love cooking and taking photos, especially around Edinburgh. I'm delighted to share aspects of my fantastic life here with you!
Hello everyone, I am Sara Madera, Ecuadorian dog lover, bookworm and outdoor enthusiast! After a very long journey, I arrived in Edinburgh last September to study MSc Philosophy. I like mountaineering, trail running, triathlon(ing) and, of course, coffee drinking. When not training or thinking deeply about philosophical problems I dedicate myself with great passion to Russian literature, especially to Dovsotievski's work because his characters reflect human consciousness very well.
I’m Sotiria, a twenty-three year-old student from Greece. I’m doing my MSc in Psychology of Language. When not reading academic articles, I like reading (and writing) fantasy, doing karate and exploring historic sites.
Hey, I'm a 4th year undergraduate English Language and Literature student, originally from Hong Kong. I have an excessive amount of clothes and a weakness for every 20% off ASOS code. You can find me in a coffee shop chasing all my syntax woes away with flat whites!
