Affairs Today - Help us increase our Facebook likes!





For anybody who reads my blog and doesn't know, I am a writer [and recent Senior Contributor] for Affairs Today, a student-led global media outlet.

I know this is a plug, but... I'm going to do it anyway! We need more Facebook likes so we can grow our reader base and grow into a bigger and more successful business!

Here's a bit about the company taken straight from the Facebook page:

"Affairs Today is an independent global student media outlet, with the prime aim of bringing a fresh point of view to current affairs. By offering daily articles, editorials and interviews we give our readers the opportunity to see beyond the trending headlines of today. Affairs Today prides itself on offering unbaised news and high quality opinion articles. We are not affiliated with any particular political agenda, political party, or national interest, making us a unique source for news and lifestyle articles."


That's what AT is all about! 


It would really help if you could give us a like on Facebook so we can increase our reader base and you can get some more news/opinion/lifestyle/tech pieces on your feeds from students around the world. It's a worthwhile endeavour!

So give us a like! Pretty please.

Thanks! :)

Ham and Potato Soup!

I know my New Years resolution was to blog more and to use my camera to take better pictures but... this is why I don't make New Years resolution! I never keep them. 

Its been almost a month since I last posted and I know that's really bad but I've just been so busy! My Masters has been kicking my butt this semester and I've taken on a larger role at Affairs Today which is taking up a lot more time than I thought it would. 

Anyway, here's another food post [with another rubbish picture] that I saw on the Tasty channel on Facebook.



Looks a bit boring and plain but I promise that's just the rubbish camera on my phone. It was creamy and filling and salty and yummy. And it lasted for days. So much soup!

Could also easily thicken up the broth a little with some flour or cornflour, put it in a dish and put some puff pastry on top and make yourself a yummy pie. I might try that soon actually...

I also found out that Morrisons does little baked hams and that was an amazing discovery.

Let me know if you like this soup!
