Perdeby experience: The Color Run

EMMA PAULET
Every week Perdeby sends their journalists to experience something out of their comfort zones. This week, head Copy editor, Emma Paulet, was coerced into taking part in The Color Run. 

The Color Run is a 5km paint race hosted all over the world. On 29 May, The Color Run took place at Waterkloof Airbase. Obviously the American spelling of ‘colour’ made some people’s eyes twitch – and it was everywhere, along with signs proclaiming that this was the “Happiest 5k on the Planet”. The course was less than 5km and, despite Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ playing, some people didn’t smile once.

Even though sushi nights, party nights and takeaways may have seemed like a good idea at the time, you always get that little lump in your throat when you check your bank balance and it shows R07,50 and it’s only 11 May. The financial student struggle is real. Perdeby did some research and spoke to a few students to get some tips on how to budget.

Perdeby experience: Walking to campus alone

KATHERINE ATKINSON
Every week Perdeby sends its journalists to experience something out of their comfort zones. This week, in light of recent events, Katherine Atkinson discusses her experiences of walking to and from campus alone.

Anyone who truly knows me will tell you that more often than not, I am late. Thursday 18 May was no exception as I was running late for my 10:30am lecture. To my dismay, I had not only missed the bus, but I had also missed the crowds that walk to campus. At about 10:13 I swiftly left my residence in Hillcrest and by 10:23 I could see the Lunnon entrance to UP.
