The Bubble is a phrase that is thrown around a little too frequently in this town. The invisible veil that shrouds St Andrews makes it noticeably different from anywhere else in Scotland, but also prevents those who live here from branching out to experience the wonders that are found nearby. Rather than travelling home during the breaks, I sought...

The Choice to Donate

Your own death is not something that most people like to prepare for in advance. What happens after life ends is debatable, but whatever your beliefs, one thing that most of us agree on is that after our death, we no longer have a use for our bodies or the organs that lie within them. NHS studies estimate that...

No Fish, Just Chips

Fish cakes, smoked haddock, battered and fried cod – yes, this is what we British love on our plates. Even non-Brits love the fine taste of sole, the lovely smell of smoked salmon or a grilled tuna steak. Imagine opening your newspaper wrapping to tuck into a portion of fish and chips; amidst the vinegar smell wafting from your...
Tesco at 5pm. One small sentence that is enough to strike fear into the heart of any St Andrews student. You could forgive even the calmest of people for going mad with sheer frustration when a trip to Tesco generally results in some impressive new bruises and the inevitable internal scream of frustration when you see the chocolate and...
When you walk, get the train, drive past a wind farm, what do you think? Do you scowl, whilst thinking to yourself “What Hideous Technological Monstrosities dominating that serene looking hill!”; or do you gaze at them, calmly thinking “What elegant white beauties they are…”? A wind turbine is a wind turbine- steel and fibreglass put together...
Cross-posted at vegansmarties March 16, 2011 Update: I have been vegan for a week - and I am wellfed, happy and healthy :) So that’s good news I guess. In other news, I finally got around to ordering a vegan cook book. After looking around on the internet for what could be the best one, I chose Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook since it’s been reviewed...
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...
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...
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 first one I wanted to try was a really simple recipe for Vegan spring rolls I found at PepperAnn’s Blog . For the non-German speakers amongst you, I shall re-post the recipe...
