My November went extremely downhill…

  Back in November of second year, I wrote a blog post about being overwhelmed by deadlines and I dubbed it ‘Novdeadber’ because that’s what it feels like. Luckily, in Law, we don’t have midterms or tests during term. Instead, we’ve got competitions, moots, and non-assessed essays, and application deadlines for training contracts/pupillages, vacation schemes, Open […]

How to prep for an application/interview

  Spending the last month applying for grad jobs has been the toughest, most time-consuming, but also illuminating process I’ve ever gone through. I’ve become so much more understanding of my strengths and weakness, and what kinds of jobs or company cultures align with my personality and strengths.   In researching a company and/or prepping […]

Being a final year student

  Ah, final year. Where do I begin?   Final year doesn’t feel like anything – you’re going through the same motions you’ve been through before, but this time there’s a graduation to look forward to. I found that the jump from first year to second year was really tough, but this year, it’s just […]

Insight on a Deloitte Careers Evening

  I wrote a while ago that I wasn’t going to write another blog post about a career change…   Well, friends, I did not lie! This blog post is career-related, but it is not about a career change! I repeat: I am not changing my career path again!!! (I’m really happy about it)   Just […]

I have a problem…(I can’t say ‘no’!)

  I’m one of those people who’s always done extra-curriculars. I can’t go to a school or university and not be involved in something outside of my studies. It’s just impossible!   Growing up, I played piano, swam (and eventually became a lifeguard/swim instructor) and did ballet outside of school. Then, I went to an […]

Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

  Summer goes by so slowly and so quickly all at the same time, it’s so strange. But, term is starting so soon and I’m just buzzing to get final year finished with!   Before I wanted to get into the heavier blog posts about uni, student life, finding your life’s calling, etc., I wanted […]

Revision

How I keep organised, revisited

  Almost a year ago, I wrote a post about my complex system of organisation and how I manage my time. Well, almost a year later, the system is no longer overly complex, as it’s been stripped down to the bare necessities, so I wanted to revisit it.   Digital calendar The first thing I […]
