About Gemma (arts (media and communications), 4th year)

What is life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare... - W.H. Davies

The ‘tell all’ name card my mum bought home from the newsagents informs me I’m a stone. A sparkly one. But a rock none the less.

The ensuing nutshell description hits a few nails on the head - ‘she sometimes reacts badly to disappointments’ but loses the plot with a ‘she is not easily side-tracked or led astray.’

I float. I watch. I stare… at people. In between this voyeuristic past time of mine, for the past three and a half years, I have been passing in and out of Media and Communications, Anthropology, History and the occasional Art History classes.

Now, in my last semester, I am gearing up for the winter chill in Sweden! After a European summer jaunt through the Balkan countries I am ready to live out the end of my student days rugged up on bike in the beautiful university town of Uppsala.

A final mushy thought? Every day is a gift with the freedom to learn, grow and watch the world go by. Enjoy!
