Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward

  This is my favourite quotation; it was said by Victor Kiam, who was an American entrepreneur and also owned the New England Patriots at one point. The quotation just resonated with me the first time I came across it.   There have been many times in my life where I have both metaphorically and physically fallen on […]

How To Be Canadian

  It’s starting to get quite busy and Scarlett inspired me to make a vlog this week! It was a fun piece to put together in the midst of the craziness that’s going on with uni and Law Society and Law Ball prep. This video is completely a joke and the only true facts are that maple taffy […]

What do students eat??

  Students are an exceptional species of human. We have voluntarily left the comfort of home-cooked meals only to find ourselves fighting for survival. We must learn to cook our own meals, and this means more than just pasta, because everyone knows by now that pasta can get really old, really quickly. Plus, you can only order Domino’s so […]

Yet another career change (and unleashing creativity)

  This week, I have had many a revelation. I’ve realised that as much as I enjoy studying law, I enjoy creating art more. This means a career change might be in need… And this can only mean two things: onwards with the journey and on to the next great adventure!   My career path […]

Three-year or two-year program?

  As you may or may not have noticed, there are a lot of Canadians at Leicester (including me!). A large majority of us come here to study law and that’s thanks to Ben Reed, the Student Recruitment Administrator, and Gemma Turton, the Deputy Undergraduate Admissions Tutor in Law, who travel around Canadian universities speaking about Leicester Law. Their goal is to recruit […]

My First New Year’s Resolution

  2016 has been a crazy year, to say the least. I’m finally studying a subject that I genuinely enjoy studying, I’ve met people who I’m absolutely grateful to have in my life, and I can feel myself changing in ways I’m really happy about.   Whenever January 1st comes around I never make a New […]

Toronto

  This week’s vlog is more of a short video of one area of downtown Toronto that’s pretty famous! It’s the Eaton Centre, Dundas Square, and Nathan Phillips Square.   Eaton Centre is a huge mall and is one of the main tourist attractions of Toronto. It has over 250 stores, and this Christmas, they […]

Let’s talk about anxiety

  Now that term one of this year is over, I’ve been reflecting on this past term and I can confidently say that it has been one of the hardest few months of my life (side note: this is my fifth year of uni, so that’s saying something! Yeah, yeah, I know I’m old, blah blah blah). […]

The Puzzle of Motivation

  Motivation is pretty slippery and difficult to hold on to. The Oxford Dictionary defines ‘motivation’ as the ‘desire or willingness to do something; enthusiasm’. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? It’s more than just simply having a desire or willingness and being enthusiastic about something; you truly have to have an impassioned desire or an intense willingness or fervent enthusiasm!!!!! to actually get something […]

Which path will you take? Pt. II

  This week’s blog post is a continuation of last week’s so let’s just get on with it!   On one fateful day in March 2015, my dad was on his way to work in Toronto while I was three hours away at uni in Kingston. He sent me a text with a picture of […]
