With Exam season coming, here are some tips that will definitely help with your revision.
Get drunk. Every day, every night, getting drunk is a fantastic way to procrastinate and spend an unnecessary amount of money.
Start a new series. Netflix was made for the exam season, why not try Archer or Orange is The New Black? With hundreds of hours already on Netflix you can be sure that you won’t even think about starting revision.
Create a Pinterest, want to start planning the home you want to buy, or the holiday you won’t be able to afford because you spent too much time browsing the web than studying? Pinterest is the place to go.
Find out what kitchen appliance you would be. Buzzfeed offer a number of pointless yet entertaining quizzes that are a sure fire way to de-stress you and waste hours on finding yourself rather than revising.
Tidy the house. It’s a great way to feel productive whilst still not doing the thing you’re supposed to be doing. While you’re at it why don’t you re-arrange your room? After all, a clean space = a clean mind.
When you’re really stuck for things to do you have to go to the last resort, phoning your parents. It may not be the most exciting thing and you’ll definitely get moaned at for something, maybe like, not doing your revision?
It’s that time of year again, where exams are coming at you left, right and centre. Exams are always stressful, but when you’re at university and you have four in a day it can get a bit too much. But don’t worry, you’re not alone, these students are all crying in a corner with you.
When you realise exam season is next week and you’ve done little to no revision.
London has been named the most expensive city to commute in. With an average of £135 per month, it beats Dublin and New York City in terms of travel.
Do you want to travel in the most expensive city in the world without breaking the bank? Here are a few tips and tricks about how to get the most out of your travel.
Do the London Shuffle: The london shuffle, also known as the commuter dance is when a person takes advantage of the busy tube stations and they shimmy their way behind you without having to pay a penny. For the more courageous people out there, you could go under the barriers and get in contact with disgusting London floors. I don’t know whats worse, paying £5 for a trip or crawling on Oxford Street Station to get out of it.
Jump Jump Jump!: If you’re lucky and there is no tfl staff around, you could jump over the barrier and make your way to the promised land of sweaty arm pits and awful body odor without having your wallet feel lighter.
‘Forget’ Your Ticket: This tip is for the extroverts out there. This easy hack includes talking to someone at the station and saying you forgot your card on the tube. Extra points if you bat your eyelashes and look frazzled as you search through your bag for your ‘lost’ card swearing you had it a second ago.
The 2-for-1: Being a student in London should classify as some sort of disability and thus, you can apply for the two for one. This means that a handicapped barrier could aid you in the fight of exorbitant prices in London. Just ask your friend to tap in as you dash through, just don’t get your bag, hand or leg caught in it if it closes.
The Bunker: A cliché, but a cliché for a reason. While on the rail, whenever you see a ticket conductor making their way down, you can slide your way into the nearest bathroom and hide like the hermit you are. This rule is slightly outdated as it is not 1995 anymore, but what is the harm in trying?
The Lucky One: Some times, and only sometimes, the barriers at Tube stations are open without a soul in sight. This gives you full access to the tubes. Now all you need is a lot of confidence in what you’re doing, don’t stop or hesitate. You got this.
The Slip In: At a busy bus stop, whenever the bus driver opens the doors to exit from, you can easily enter without tapping in your oyster card. Extra points if you have a friend to distract the driver at the front of the bus, but it can easily be done without it.
Go out and live your cheapest life! Who knew living the life of rebellion is so rewarding?
Ed Sheeran is the epitome of British. With his messy ginger hair, beer belly and awkward sarcasm. He’s the kind of guy you find in your local pub awkwardly hovering near the pool table. And yet, he is a worldwide sensation, how the hell did this average guy from Suffolk become a household name?
During the release of his latest album, Divided, Ed Sheeran broke a number of Spotify records including the streaming record, with his album streaming over 68 million times in a day and all 16 tracks from the album sat comfortably in the top 16 songs on Spotify’s top 50 UK chart.
Sheeran’s popularity began to grow in 2011, with the release of his debut album, Plus and the song A Team which earned Sheeran the Ivor Novella Award for best song musically and lyrically. Sheeran later went on to smash the Brit Awards for Best British Male Solo artist and British Breakthrough Act in 2012, cementing his place as a star.
Some may have thought with the major success of his first album that he would end up being a one hit wonder, but now, with the release of his highly anticipated third album it’s safe to say he isn’t going anywhere.
His music ranges from acoustic heartbreak to pop, it’s music you wish was around when you were 15 getting drunk in a field. He’s collaborated with numerous artists including: Calvin Harris, Taylor Swift, Elton John and has wrote music for none other than One Direction.

Part of his charm is the fact that he genuinely had to work to get where he is, his route to stardom began by busking. Then in 2009 he played over 300 gigs and couch surfed to continue to perform. But it isn’t just his musical talent that makes people love him, he also seems to be just a regular, genuine guy.
At the Brit Awards this year Sheeran was seen walking out of an after party bare foot, holding his girlfriend’s heels whilst she trotted behind him wearing his trainers.

If that isn’t a true gentleman I don’t know what is. But his nice guy persona stretches further back than that.
In 2015, Ed Sheehan spoke at the Live Benefit gala in New York and spoke about his stutter struggle. He told the kids “Embrace your weirdness.”
Or that time he decided to give away his entire wardrobe to charity shops in his local city.
Given my whole wardrobe a bunch of charity shops. All stuff worn on shoots, videos and live, if you live around suffolk it might be near you
And in 2012 when his single the A Team (inspired by his volunteering work with Crisis) reached global charts, he asked all VIPs on the guest list to donate to the cause. But it isn’t just Ed’s big heart that has made everyone fall head over heels for him, he’s actually pretty funny as well.
Like that one time at the GRAMMY’s where he was too drunk to really pay attention to the interview.
Or that time he decided to give life and diet advice, and not in the way anyone was expecting.
And he never takes himself too seriously, especially his dress sense.
It’s safe to say that the guy is your typical English man, and although he is funny, and kind, even being called the nicest guy in pop, we love him purely because he is him. Ed Sheeran, it is true, I fell in love with an English man.
Yesterday, the famous ‘Friends’ actress, Jennifer Aniston, pulled a prank on Radio 1’s Chris Stark during the interview of promoting the new film ‘Horrible Bosses 2’, where Jennifer plays a sexy dentist.
