The Best Friend’s Best Friend – A Freshers Phenomenon

Read More

I like to think that I’m a very reasonable person, y’know. I’m a nice gal. But at the moment I’m being faced with a real dilemma, a proper moral test. Its similar to when you meet your new partner’s ex, or your ex’s new partner. Its the best friend’s best friend. To outline this, there seems to be a bit of competition between one’s uni friends and home friends over…

Election Night: Cold Hearts, Warm Pints

Read More

It started well. I must admit that it did start well. The screens were blaring, the coffee had been chugged, the power naps were had and the vibes were good. There were hot dogs.

Freshers week requires a suspension of your snobbery – to really enjoy the RAG pack you have to embrace it with open arms, personalised freshers t-shirts and all. If you accept that you will have to participate in a surprisingly aggressive dance-off with rival…

DEAR FRESHERS…

Read More

Freshers is a daunting thought for some. Will I make any friends? Will my new friends be anywhere near as cool as my home mates who can flatten Fosters cans on their head? Is it true that at LSE we spend freshers reciting Keynes to one another while debating whether J.S Mill is truly a Utilitarian or Feminist? Or can he be both? For those of you caught in this…
