'The Home-Corner' by Ruth Thomas ****

Ruth Thomas’ work has been highly acclaimed by authors such as Shena Mackay, and her third novel, The Home Corner, has received favourable reviews.  The story is set in an unnamed city in Scotland in the mid-1990s, and focuses upon nineteen-year-old Luisa McKenzie, who finds herself unexpectedly and uncomfortably working as a teaching assistant at a school named St Luke’s – ‘a role she never envisaged or wanted’ – as a result of failing her Scottish Highers. 326 more words

Southern Ridges! (Hike)

Or… at least half of it? According to the map at vivo, the southern ridges stretches from Vivo City to West Coast Park (say waaatt??). However, Beth and I stopped halfway because there was construction and the sign pointed to the construction site which we could not go through, and we got lost once we tried to go one big round… -.- While most people start at west coast park (or hort park maybe?), we decided to start at vivo city lol. 987 more words
