Sorry I haven’t blogged in ages. My third year of Uni kinda happened and I had essays and a dissertation to write as well as a 10 minute film to make so hence why I have gone AWOL for quite a few months. But I’m back now with a haul post. There is an independent chain in Aberystwyth called Polly and I absolutely LOVE their stuff and I’d thought I’d share what I have bought over the past few months with you lovely people
Last year the seaside town of Aberystwyth, Wales decided to get rid of their traffic wardens for a year. This caused a parking pandemonium within the town. People were able to park anywhere. And I mean literally anywhere. Well there was nobody to stop them was there? There were people parking on double yellow lines, disabled parking bays etc. I saw many examples of bad parking. This park anywhere crisis was only made worse by the hot weather. Hot weather and Aberystwyth means that everyone with a car was trying to find a space to park on the seafront. I know that everyone hates traffic wardens and many Aberystwyth residents have complained about the over zealous traffic wardens. So the best solution was the get rid of the traffic wardens. Right? Seems that people have lost all ability to act responsibilty. Bedlam then ensued in this tiny town and what is shame is that there was nothing that could be done about it
Aberystwyth University student halls are bursting at the seams. They have taken in more students than they can accomodate for. Their solution? Put in bunk beds into some of rooms. This not only rises the amount of people in each flat/house but it also raises the amount of money the University is getting. It’s ridiculous. The bunk rooms aren’t like the twin rooms. Twin rooms have two of everything whereas the bunk rooms don’t. A bunk room only has one desk and one wardrobe. Also the fact that you won’t know who you are living with til you get there is a bit nerve-racking because if you get a bad roommate then your first year of uni won’t be as enjoyable.
