Christmastime, Mistletoe and Jäeger…

That’s the lyrics, right? Good old Cliff, the cheeky minx. And so this post (more than) officially concludes my first term at uni…I clearly have an A* in timekeeping, I actually came home on the 12th. *Slow clap* We most definitely ended the year on a bang. All of my flatmates and I headed toContinue reading “Christmastime, Mistletoe and Jäeger…”

Workin’ 9 to 5…

So as it turns out, Overpacked may just be on her way to being paid. Yes you did just read that right. And yes, I am well aware that I sound like a pretentious twat when I refer to myself in the third person. Such fun. Not overpaid mind you, which is what I actuallyContinue reading “Workin’ 9 to 5…”

Do you have a plaster?

Based on recent estimates, I now believe that I spend around 90% of my free time (and 100% of my…err….non-free time) staring at pictures of men… Hundreds of them, all on my phone. No…I haven’t just gotten cozy with the university rugby team, or the football team, or the lacrosse team… Le grande sigh. AndContinue reading “Do you have a plaster?”

The Hangover Part IV…

I have to say, I think last night was was the worst nights out I’ve had so far at uni. Having not been out out for three weeks (flu, home, sleep), I’ve literally been chomping at the bit for a good evening of partying; but far be it for me to have a decent clubbingContinue reading “The Hangover Part IV…”

Stalk Me (No, Actually)…A Day in the Life…

Well considering today is the two month anniversary of Overpacked and Underpaid, I thought that you and I would…you know…get to know eachother a little more…intimately. Here, I found your mind, I think you dropped it in the gutter… Boom boom! I’ll let myself out… Anyway all of you lovelies that actually read my posts, (andContinue reading “Stalk Me (No, Actually)…A Day in the Life…”

Just call me Jones…

…Bridget Jones, that is. You know the scene in The Edge of Reason where Bridget attends Mr Darcey’s law council dinner in scary knickers and bad hair, insults everyone by calling them “balding upper-middle-class twits” and gets the quiz answer completely wrong? Well extend that over a four hour period and throw in the factContinue reading “Just call me Jones…”

The only way is Essex…

I’m home! I’m in complete bliss…I’ve seen my family, I’ve had a three hour soak in an actual bath, I’ve been cooked food and bought clothes and spent the entire morning curled up by the fire doing some reading. What’s that? You want me to address the elephant in the room? AKA the title ofContinue reading “The only way is Essex…”

I’m bored, I’m the chairman of the bored…

I had the most boring lecture in the history of all lectures today. The professor kept jumping from topic to topic and relapsing into her native language…DO I LOOK BILINGUAL TO YOU? Oh why thank you. (I’m not) Does this face look bovvered about whether the Treason Act of 1351 which forbid imagining the deathContinue reading “I’m bored, I’m the chairman of the bored…”

Freshers Flu 2.0…

I was doing so, so well. Everyone around me was dropping like flies but I was dodging those germs like a ninja in a laser maze. *Does Kung Fu Panda pose* I wasn’t ill for the whole of freshers week…or the week after that…or the week after that… Until the dreaded superbug emerged: FRESHERS FLUContinue reading “Freshers Flu 2.0…”
