Time to Party 

It is safe to say that everyone has struggled over the past year or two. We have lived through some tough times. But we are – hopefully – on our way back. Slowly but surely, life will finally return to normal. That is something that deserves a massive celebration, which is luckily something we are able to do again! Celebrate! But, we have gotten a little rusty. How do we get back in the mood for partying? 

Lust for Student Life 

Starting out at university is always an exciting time. You enter a new environment with loads of new people, and you acquire vast amounts of new knowledge and new ideas in a short period. Especially now, with society re-opening, this might be an amazing or a slightly daunting prospect. How can you get the most out of your student life?
