The Elusive Notion of Home

As far as idioms go, ‘home is where the heart is’ can definitely be seen as one of the more literal ones.

However, it has always struck me as having two different, although connected, interpretations, dependingContinue reading “The Elusive Notion of Home”

Meet the Board: Constantinos and Demi

I moved around a lotContinue reading “Meet the Board: Rebecca, Stella and Elis”

“New school year, new me,” I say as I close my newly-bought weekly planner. Cautiously but determinedly wading into the last year of my English BA, I am set on making it count. I have a new planner after all; I must be organized! Alex and I have been entrusted with the care of thisContinue reading “Meet the Board: Eda and Alexandra”

A Note From the New Board

The baton has been passed on to a brand new board, but the new editors-in-chief are getting quite nostalgic looking back at the past year.
