Salut! I’m Connor – welcome to my blog!

For anyone who doesn’t know me, but somehow stumbled across this blog, I’m a 23-year old northerner studying French at the University of Warwick.

I created this blog with the intention of documenting my year abroad en France, but after months of drafting unnecessarily boastful travel posts, I asked myself: “Why would anyone want to read that when a goading and #well-hashtagged Instagram post is suitably off-putting for most?“. So I decided to, at the very least, put such posts on hold.IMG_7295

I will one day decide to write about my year abroad, but, for now, my blog is seemingly evolving into an assortment of: responses to current affairsreviews of books, podcasts, series and films; historytravel; and football.

If you want to keep up to date with what I’m doing, there are also links to my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at the top-right of this page.
