SHUUUUUUUSH! Its the Secret Diary of a Student Bum!

Hello my name is Carrot and I am a student bum.

I've been a student bum ever since I can remember, approximately since September 2002. Although I can't be sure as the excessive alcohol consumption which comes with the responsibility of being a student has addled my already confused mind and fragile mental state.

I'm studying for a degree in Medical Biochemistry ( evidence of an unhinged mind if ever there was any!) and am going into my second year in September. Before then and Now though I have 3 months off and very little to do....which is not all that different to term time really except that instead of doing not very much at university, i'm doing very little at home instead and under closer scrutiny from elders.

As a wise man once said ( Spiderman) with great power comes great I have no responsibilites, I have no power at all. Therefore, inorder to obtain a little bit of power I've decided to bradcast my life as a student bum.

Above is a delightful calendar charting the archives of this blog. Its an insight into another time...when old people could wander the streets without fear from attack and tomatoes tasted like they are supposed to. I f you like what I wrote today its highly likely you'll like what I wrote yesterday so have a gander!

Long time ago......I did this totally ace website that no-one has bothered to look at. Any way its a piece of world wide web wonderment and I recommend you web fiends read it. Its called


An insight into a time when this bum was a little bit more motivated! A bit like a support group for all you people who claim that your favourite social commentator of all time is Aldous Huxley when really its Boyd Hilton. Because there are bad people in the world who won't let some pop groups get beyond the difficult second single, let alone the difficult second album. The University of Leicester Newspapers official site. I've had a couple of articels published on here. Type in Donnelly into the search bit and voila! Journalistic ineptitude at your finger tips!

Mosh Nightclub A favourite haunt of this bum. The drink is cheap, the music loud and the queue for the toilets is non-existant. Incidently this is the same criteria I used for choosing which university to go to originally

free hit counter

This week I couldn't be a bum without...

Thanks to this little slice of pop perfection its party time all the time in the studentbum house! With no song longer than four minutes its perfect for those, like myself with the attention span of clobbered to death goldfish!

Last year I an unearthed a long forgotten time of day in this Bums life, breakfast time and with it the marvel that is Weeto's. See the genius of this product is that not only do they turn the milk chocolatey, but they also have a hole in the middle that contains no fat, so really they are actually pretty good for you!

Its been a cold, lonely summer a wise man once sang (Jason Donovan, I salute you) and he was certainly right about the weather but since I bought the Spaced series one and two DVD boxset its been alot less lonely. I'd like to say thats because all my hip, young and cool London chums have been coming round to watch it with me but that would be a lie. Basically I put it on and pretend they're my friends.....well all them except Brian.

Hmmmm, I'm having a bit of a Manics renaisance at the moment and I've just remebered how much I fancied this smurf like character. Its funny what a couple of listens to jaunty little numbers like " Archives of Pain", "Despair to Where?" and the upbeat "Of Walking Abortion" can do to a girl. Swooooon!

It's over now and I can't see yoooooou!

As of the 1st of June I completed my last ever piece of University assessed work and had my last exam. Effectively as soon as Dr. Grubb (SWOOON!) told us all in the exam hall to put down our pens and stop writing my student life came to an end and so to does this website, it is afterall about being a studentbum but now that part of my life is over I can't really keep this website up and running.

I suppose if I wanted to do I could carry on updating it until I reached graduation but that feels like I'd just be putting off saying goodbye and because I'm really rubbish at goodbyes I've actually decided to set up a new blog about my post-student life and that can be found at I wouldn't go looking at it too much at the moment, there is literally nothing there to see.

Its been fun, the student life, writing this blog and the abuse I've received because of it (see the tag board over there) but now its time to move on.

Take care of yourselves and keep on bumming!
