When I was around 16 I was told by a GP after about 10 minutes of chatting about my symptoms, that I had Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

I want to read more. Yes, I am an English Literature student, and yes, I do read a lot. However, it’s very rare these days that I get to read for myself, to read books that I choose for once. For this reason, I have compiled a little ‘to be read’ list. – The Harry Potter series. … Continue reading My 2017 ‘To Be Read’ List
