Day 7: Lunch time snacks?

Cross-posted at vegansmarties March 15, 2011 One problem I have found is that it seems hard to find somewhere in town to buy quick, ready-made lunch. None of Tesco’s lunch deals are vegan – the few vegetarian sandwiches and pies all contain either egg, cheese or mayonnaise. In an attempt to still get lunch which does not consist of a plain piece...

Day 5: A (not-so) Cheesy Matter

Cross-posted at vegansmarties March 14, 2011 Cheese is what I thought I’d miss most this lent. I don’t drink much milk, and I hardly ever buy any eggs, but I do like cheese. So I started looking around for alternatives straight away… I did some research, and it turns out that vegan cheese is available in all kinds of colours and textures...

What is it all about?

Students here at St Andrews are often happy enough to busy their lives with studies, university events, procrastination and the odd part time job. However, for some that is simply not enough. Nicola Kettell, a Fourth Year Ancient History and Latin student, and Jasmine Wheelhouse, a Second Year English student, the typical student life wasn’t enough to feed their...

Day 2: Home-made Springrolls!

Cross-posted at vegansmarties March 11, 2011 So, today was the day I decided to start trying new recipes, which I had aimed to be a positive side-effect of the experience.

The Relationship Status: A guide to interpreting those online romantic ambiguities

Have you been Facebook stalking your latest beau-to-be? Although the ‘Relationship Status’ bar on the website may be intended to clear up any niggling doubts about whether a person is seeing someone or not, the various meanings behind each status update can often cause more confusion than anything else. Here, The Saint examines the most popular interpretations to end...

How to: avoid your relatives on Facebook

1) Don’t accept them as a friend in the first place. Accidently brush your finger over that ‘Ignore’ button and your problems are solved. Next time you see Aunty Barbara, avoid eye contact at all costs. If she mentions it, mutter something about how you never really go on Facebook anyway, as it’s a drain on your precious studying...

Carnival in Cologne

“Kölle Alaaf” – This call originates from the old toast “Cöllen al aff” in the 17th century, meaning “Cologne before everything else,” and can be heard in almost every street of Cologne at this time of the year shouted out by all carnival revellers. The month of March 2011 refers to the fifth season of the year, marking a...

Day 1 – Pancake Day

Cross-posted at vegansmarties As I come home from work in the early morning hours, I am craving the pancakes that I am hoping my flat mates will have left for me in the kitchen. I do have some twinges of conscience because it is after midnight: some may argue that the period of lent has officially begun. My friend M’s...

40 Days of Vegetables: Going Vegan for Lent

Cross-posted at vegansmarties. I had been planning to go vegetarian for a couple of weeks, but hadn’t taken the big step just yet. With the start of Semester Two, the meat completely disappeared from my fridge shelf. I felt good about myself: physically, morally – my conscious was completely guilt-free.  When I went on to...

To Drive or Not to Drive?

As I sit here and look at my bicycle leaning up against the wall, I am reminded that I am one of a number of students at the University of St Andrews who does not have a valid UK driving licence. But how many other students are there like me? Does this even have anything to do with driving...
