As readers and students of literature, we all enjoy the work of living authors. It’s great to be able to think that the writer whose book is in front of you may produce more novels, plays or poems, or that the story you are following is only the first volume of a trilogy still being written! We can hear authors read their work aloud at events like the Chester Literature Festival. We may get to chat to authors at book signings, attend conferences on their work or even interview them.

But don't worry it's only natural to feel a little apprehensive and it's something that all our students have been through. Take a look at the snaps shared by some of our students to see how they've settled into their accommodation.
Bringing items that remind you of home is a great way to help you to settle into your accommodation. Pictures of friends and family and fairy lights are popular choices for making your room feel cosy.

We are connected with economics all the time, even if we don’t realise it. When we think of which cereals to choose for our breakfast or when we make decisions about where to spend our holidays, or simply when we decide between going out for a meal or staying at home, the rationale behind those thoughts is related to economics. Do we have enough ‘income’ for a holiday abroad or will a modest camping week have to do? Can we go for the fanciest cereals or can we only afford the basic supermarket brand?

Christmas is a little over a week away, and the pressure to buy gifts for those close to you is probably mounting! Unfortunately, your budget is more than likely stretched to the max already and at this point and you’re probably questioning how you’ll make another 3 days’ worth of meals out of a Bombay Bad Boy Pot Noodle, half a loaf of questionably stale bread, a pot of thyme seasoning and the single frozen Yorkshire pudding you found at the back of the freezer!
