It’s difficult enough for anyone to find a job these days without new barriers being erected constantly. My personal least favourite barrier is the online assessment, and I aim to describe why I refuse to do any application that involves one ever again.

Shoreditch a swish area in London, packed with people donning trendy streetwear and generally being insufferable. I hope to outline the ways in which they are, and to use as much meaningless jargon as possible.
As a full disclaimer, I really do like Shoreditch. There are some great bars and clubs out there, and great street food. But I’m nothing if not a constant complainer. Continue reading “Everything Wrong With Shoreditch”
For the past year, I was writing a dissertation. I have read more than seventy books in their entirety since January as well as writing multiple papers. Therefore, I’ve been MIA. All three of you reading this must have been devastated.
This blog is going to become somewhat of a mix of travel, commentary, and polemics. Because my current net worth is less than $100, I haven’t been travelling much the past few months and instead have been going round London, where I live for the time being.
That said, I hope to be a bit better about regular posting in future.
I spent today walking round the city of Aalborg and trying to find a place called Lindholm Høje, a Viking cemetery and ruins, in Nørresundby, a town across the street. In the process, I’m pretty sure I accidentally trespassed on a military base.
Aalborg is a small town in the North of Denmark, about six hours from Denmark by train. The great thing about it is that there is a direct flight from London for £18 each way. I couldn’t pass up that opportunity to spend a week here for my Christmas break. Continue reading “Aall Aabout Aalborg”
My total is seventy since 1.1.17, precisely the target I wanted to hit: Continue reading “Books I’ve Read This Year”
I have been awfully busy with papers and the like so I haven’t been writing on here anywhere near as much as I’d like, in spite of the fact that there is so much happening that I could write about. Continue reading “London: What’s It Good For?”
I’m dreadfully sorry to all three of you who read this pitiful blog, but I have been rather busy the past month. I’m currently living in London for graduate studies, and I have either been reading, writing (for school), or crying in existential despair every moment of the past three months. Continue reading “It’s Been Forever, But Let’s Take A “DRIVE””
At the risk of ending up on r/iamverysmart, I would like to preface this piece by explaining that I have always had a hard time living out of my head, and that I struggle constantly to force my brain into a state one might call “relaxation”. And recently, I have been taking great pains to force my spine to assert itself.
I haven’t been on here in forever because nothing much has been going on, and in any case I’ve been in a terrible mood the past few weeks so I haven’t felt like writing anything. To be perfectly honest, I totally forgot I even had this blog. But S. (yes, the S.) reminded me of it last week and I realised I should recommence to some small degree.
