It was World Mental Health Day on Monday, and it has opened up a dialogue about a subject that just doesn't seem to be talked about nearly enough. ...
Loneliness is not an illness. Like dehydration or hunger it is the body's call for something crucial it lacks, though like an illness it can be debilitating to an individual, stripping them of their happiness and self esteem, not to mention potentially dangerous physical symptoms, such as high blood pressure. It is recognised and certifiably dangerous, and loneliness isn't nearly as talked about as it should be.
The Girl on the Train is the perfect example of how Hollywood has a delightful knack of ruining good books (apologies, to the writer Paula Hawkins f...
I recently visited London, it's something I do on a more regular basis over the Summer months, to explore one of the most visited tourist attractions, the Coca Cola London Eye. I love visiting the famous landmarks which light up the London Skyline.
From an early age, I knew I'd have my own business. I just wasn't sure what it would be. Traditional schooling wasn't for me. At the time, I just couldn't see the value in learning things that had no place in the real world. The area of a trapezoid? Ask the architect, not me.
Something terrible is happening to the Tube. Where once it was a place of solitude for the fatigued, if a bit sweaty, commuter, a sadistic group of right-on luvvies is attempting to turn it into a guitar-playing, poncho-wearing, dreadlock-sporting commune.
While London is a big city, it is also a safe city. International students and their parents often wonder how safe it is to study in another country, so here is some information and a few tips to keep you safe while studying in London.
Buying a property in the south of England is an extraordinary journey in suspended belief. What could buy you a manor just past the Watford Gap will get you a glorified shed in cities like Brighton. From this point on, potential homeowner, you must dispel all dreams of grandeur - this is a 'desirable' location after all, and if someone somewhere is prepared to pay out of the petunias for it, well, then so must you.
Abstract Expressionism is serious, grown-up stuff. It's about existential anxiety and overwhelming emotions. It's about death and the absurdity of lif...
There are not many times in life you get to see your heroes. And even fewer who leave you with a better impression than the one you had. But the understated Gilmour is one of the greats. The encore of Time and Comfortably Numb will never be forgotten.
Eighty years ago, on October 4th 1936, the local community involved in the Battle of Cable Street had little understanding of the impact and lessons the day would have in shaping the fight against racism and fascism for the future.
I saw a post on Twitter today that really angered me. One of our Gold medal winning Paralympians, Sophie Christiansen OBE, had been stranded on a train because Great Western had not ensured there was a ramp for her when she arrived at Paddington Station.
Back in June, after four days of sleeping on a campsite and trudging about in wellies at Glastonbury Festival, I was completely ready for a hotel room and a big, comfortable bed. Fortunately for me then, I was checking into London's 5* Courthouse Hotel for the night.
Although I have to say, after having lived in Berlin for eight months, this isn't something that I have personally noticed. I have met a lot of lovely Berliners and of course some not-so-lovely ones. So just putting it out there, Berliners are no more or less rude than Londoners, I would know, being the overly sensitive soul that I am.
