Oh my goodness, MOD pizza. I think you can tell by that reaction from just looking at the blog pictures that my thoughts and feelings on this place are of a very fond nature indeed.

I went to MOD with my friend Izzy as a post-exams, end-of-year celebration type thing. I was very hungry and very ready for some pizza — I'd been wanting to go to this place for the best part of my two year uni experience thus far, after having heard many a good review from fellow students.

As a first-timer, it was intriguing to learn that MOD was less of a restaurant and more of a fast-food-but-for-pizza kind of place, so you can really personalise whatever you want from here. Think Subway, but for pizza. I think that's great as it makes it really inclusive, especially for fussy eaters as I can (sometimes) be.

I think you can make out what I got, but here's the run-down anyways: tomato base, cheese, chicken, sweetcorn and peppers. A pretty dreamy combination if you ask me. And I had leftovers — I got the last tiny cardboard box to take home a couple of slices in. Definitely demolished it for dinner. Not even sorry. 

The best part? Surprisingly, the price! Altogether it was only around £8 (don't forget to ask for student discount!) and on top of that, you get a refillable drink cup to choose whatever drink you would like at the drinks counter. So I'd say the price makes the pizza taste even better so you can eat without the 'I'm a student who just got pizza I can't afford' guilt. So relatable.

I definitely recommend you check out MOD Pizza! I'm so glad there's one in Nottingham (I think there are only around five or six in the country, including two(?) in London). Feeling very blessed to have this pizza place in my student city. Definitely going back for more when the next academic year begins so that I can cry into my pizza and refillable cup about the looming deadlines that approach.

Hope you enjoyed… what's your fave pizza place? Let me know.

Love,

MOD Pizza Review: Nottingham

Oh, hey, blogosphere. It's been a while, hasn't it? It feels like forever since I've just taken the time to chill out and write a blogpost. Maybe some of that is to do with everything that I've had going on in my final semester of second year which — and I can't believe this as I'm writing it — is over. 

So, second year. I feel like I did a complete 180 turnover this year and I don't know how I did it. Now, I'm not usually one for believing in fate/destiny, so maybe it was more my own determination and will to put myself out there and change things for the better. Even if didn't consciously think about these things at the time.

If you're wondering what I'm talking about, it's partly the best decision that I made during uni: to start the theatre society. Partly this decision, partly the people that I met as a result of this. I just became a happier, smilier and generally better person because of the experience that I had assistant directing a couple of shows and making so many friends from doing this. It's a total difference compared to the lack of community that I felt at the start of second year with having left halls to now: I have made genuine good friends, bettered myself and made many more memories than I would have if I hadn't joined the theatre. All of which I am so grateful for.

Academically, things improved as well, but I shan't go into too much detail about that as it's summer now and I'm going to enjoy it. I enjoyed my modules and am proud of my overall grade, but I know that things need to improve for next year even still. It's crazy to think I'll be applying for my masters in September but I'm excited (and anxious) for a new start when I graduate next year (omg). 

So, that's a brief summary of what I've been up to. I hope to be a bit more regular with the blogposts now that I have the time (including some foodie reviews from around Notts), so please stay with me for that!

Love,
