‘I don’t vote. I don’t see the point…’

I was recently involved in a conversation about the upcoming General Elections and one lady said that she doesn’t believe in elections:

‘I don’t vote, I don’t see the point. One party promises to cut taxes, another to increase benefits, but all these things are small and unimportant. No matter who’s elected, they will still go and drop bombs on people and make huge nation- and life-changing decisions without public’s input.’

She was mostly opposed, with others in the discussion suggesting that she should show that she feels this way and still go to the polling station and just cross out the ballot as a sign of protest.

Estimated 64% of 18-24 year old didn’t bother voting in Brexit referendum, and look where it got us.

I don’t get to vote at the general election, but if I did, I would 100% go to the polling station and vote to make a point of my views.

You should too. Don’t forget to register to vote before 22nd of May.

Brookes Snow Ski Trip 2017

We just got back from the best Ski trip ever at Les Acrs 1800, and I just can’t keep my emotions in! I literally was in tears on the last day – leaving the Alps broke my heart!

First of all, I would like to say a massive thank you to the Oxford Brookes Snow Sports Committee and Wastelandski reps – you guys have made the trip absolutely fantastic!

Secondly, I would like to thank my friends, who have been amazing this week and made the trip the best group trip I’ve ever been to.polina-rocks-les-arces-brookes-snow-ski-trip-2017-emoji

25 presents for 25th Birthday

My birthday is coming up, and I’ve already got  an early present from Alice and Keaton – and what a present it is!

The guys got me a box with 25 items – for my age – and each item is so thoughtful! I’m going on a ski trip the day after my birthday, so this hamper is not only helpful, but will remind me of them throughout the trip (Keaton is coming with me, but Alice is far away in Edinburgh). The box came with a card explaining each item – I copied it from the card for you to read below 🙂

So what was in the box?
