The calm after the storm…

Checking the date on the file, I wrote this post on 23rd June, but since I didn’t set my blog up until over a month later, here it is now… A Levels have been finished for just over a week (for me at least, sorry Chemistry students!) and although I was looking forward to theContinue reading “The calm after the storm…”

Hey there! Who is On The Fly and why am I doing this?

Hi! I’m Fizz, an 18-year-old fresh-out-of-exams aspiring blogger who struggles to describe herself now that the word “student” is no longer entirely accurate.
