Hey there!  I have some good news for anyone who reads my blogs, I have had my second back operation and I am healing really well! Progress is being seen so hopefully I’ll be back to my studies soon! (and be back to meet all of you I haven’t yet had the chance to!) As I am still unable to move a lot, I have watched more Netflix so here are another 5 things you could watch this month in between lectures, work and study! I’ll be doing another one in December and if you haven’t seen my October one – go and check it out!

Hope everyone is well and I shall see you all soon!

Fresh Meat, 2016, 18: CALLING ALL UNI STUDENTS! Think your house is bad, untidy and noisy? Well watch fresh meat and it will be so clean in comparison! It is about a group of university students living together, having parties and love affairs. Definitely worth a watch – its hilarious. It also features Jack Whitehall! I can’t get enough of this series as it just shows you how uni campus’ are so much fun!

Eli, 2019, 15: Eli is a film about a boy who is allergic to the outside. He gets taken to a doctor who has been proven to heal all of her patients. When Eli is in the house he makes new friends and that is when there is a massive plot twist towards the end… it stars actors from stranger things and the conjuring (which are both good watches too!) Eli is also in relation to the devil as it appears in the story and is quite interesting toward the end in this perspective!

SHREK! 2001, U: Shrek is one of my family’s all time favourites! What’s not to like?! If you have been living under a rock here is what it’s about. It is about an ogre who makes friends with a donkey when his swamp AKA house is invaded by mythical creatures who were banished by Lord Farquaad. He makes a journey with donkey to persuade the Lord to take the creatures out of his swamp however this is when he is given the task of rescuing Princess Fiona (who, by the way has a massive secret the whole time!) for him to then get his swamp back, however, it isn’t till the end that there is a twist and that not all ogres are bad after all…

A series of unfortunate events, 2018, 12: A series of unfortunate events has been a series of books, a movie and is now a Netflix series too. It is about 3 children who become orphans after a terrible fire and have to go and stay with their uncle Count Olaf who turns out to only want to inherit their money. The series tells the story of how they go from guardian to guardian but are always flowed by count Olaf! It is a real nice chill out series full of interesting plot twisted and ‘unfortunate’ events! (It also features the actor Neil Patrick Harris who does an amazing performance as count Olaf).

Daddy’s home 2, 2017, 12:  Will Farnell and Mark Wahlberg star in this hilarious Christmas classic and as Christmas is only around the corner, why not watch this to get into the spirit! It is basically a dad vs. dad competition, and this actually is the second film that they have made but you don’t need to have watched the first one to get this story line! In the first one they had battled it out to see who the better dad was as the parents had divorced and the wife had started to date again! However, in round 2, both grandads comes to say and let me tell you; they are cool grandads! This film is full of laughs, action, and love. It is a real feel good film and is 100% recommendable!

  • What to watch on Netflix this October

    Unfortunately, I am currently not at uni this academic year due to needing a 2nd back operation however I am still writing blogs! Throughout my recovery from my first back operation I have been watching a lot of Netflix and thought I would share a couple of my favourites with you each month or so, so you have ideas on what to watch when you have spare time between your studies and events! Here are some of my current favourites! Enjoy!

  • A Guide to Reaseheath Accommodation

    One of my top tips about choosing your halls of residence at Reaseheath would be to come to open days and see as much of the different halls as possible and find the one which most suits you! Make sure that you research them before you apply, and most importantly apply early as it’s a first come first served basis and they do fill up fast and you might not end up in the halls of residence which you really want!

  • Why attend a Taster/Offer Holder Day?

    It can be nerve-wracking trying to make the decision based on just one Course Open Event, which is why we also hold Higher Education Offer Holder Days and Further Education Taster Days. We run several applicant visit days throughout the year, so keep an eye out for both Higher Education and Further Education days using these links! You can get a real feel for the campus and area if you come to our Course Open Event. We’ll show you around, take you to subject specific departments for you to get a feel for the place you’ll be studying. As soon as I came onto the campus, I knew this was the place I wanted to go to.
