Yeh, it’s really cold, you’re still harbouring (quite impressively) your Christmas weight and you’ve officially failed every single one of your New Year’s resolutions. And you’re single. But February is going to be one hell of a month and here’s why.

 

1. It’s no longer January.

To improve her employability Lucy decided to do a Masters in Shakespeare. Her favourite play is Much Ado About Nothing - appropriate considering she’s now been at university for almost five years... Growing up in Newcastle, Lucy always wanted to be a travel journalist. Someone needs to tell her that going to Zone 5 every now and again does not count.
