My name is Tessa – 21 years young, born and raised in the Midlands, UK and hopelessly confused about where I’m going in life. Things I enjoy include writing anything that isn’t a markable essay, playing basketball, a strong cup of Yorkshire tea, hugs and dogs (especially dogs.)
As part of studying towards a History degree at the Univeristy of Exeter I spent a year on an exchange in Ottawa, Canada. This blog began as a way of documenting that year, and became a place I could share my thoughts and experiences on living in the Canadian capital, and then on my travels afterwards. Posts from that year were sometimes advisory, sometimes painfully honest, and sometimes humourous (or an attempt at it). For all my posts from my year abroad, please click over to the masterpost I made documenting everything I wrote during the year.
I’ve done a bit of blogging before for the University of Exeter student bloggers – so if you’re interested, you are welcome to check that out for more about my experience at Exeter.
Now in my final year with graduation looming, I thought this blog needed a bit of an update. Hopefully I’ll keep using it throughout my 20s, as a place to think, reflect and get stuff down.
