THIS time of the year is always a tricky one for students.

It's a time when money is at it's tightest as we wait (im)patiently for our last instalment of student loan for the year, semester A results are out, and with it comes the inevitable relief, disappointment, shock, joy etc and semester B is well underway and that means only one thing - deadlines, deadlines, deadlines!

For me, February was a hectic month. As well as studying, I visited the WHT, Channel 4 News and The Guardian for work experience; I interviewed the guitarist from one of my favourite bands, Sikth, my fiancé and I found a house to live in next year, I was taken to Madrid for a romantic weekend break, and celebrated my 22nd birthday!

March is shaping up to be just as busy, but with coursework instead of city breaks, sadly.
