Being mindful in how we use language

  Today’s blog post is simultaneously a PSA and a personal vendetta against people who don’t use Oxford commas. Just kidding!   This week, I wanted to write about our use of language. I never truly understood just how much of an impact words can have, written or spoken, until I started studying law. I suddenly found myself […]

So…I didn’t get Chairperson!

  I wasn’t really sure about posting this blog post, because of how personal it is, but here I go!   On 17th March 2017, we found out about the Law Society election results. I skimmed through the post on Facebook with eager/nervous anticipation; I had no idea who was going to end up being […]

Revision tips, Pt. II

  This is part 2 of Mama Lucie’s revision tips! Let’s just get on with it!   IN THE EXAM I listen to music on my way to the exam and don’t chat to anyone before the exam, because when people cram right before going in, it terrifies me into thinking that I haven’t learned everything. […]

This is my case law chart. I made one for each topic that I revised.

Revision tips, Pt. I

  It’s that time of year – it’s REVISION TIME. In the midst of all the chaos, I wanted to give you some insight on how I study for my exams.   It’s completely okay that you’re not revising and you are, in fact, still learning. It’s okay that you haven’t caught up with all your lectures. […]

Challenge accepted!

  Back in November, I wrote a post about being overwhelmed. Well, guess what? It’s that time of year again! It’s nearing the end of term, and not only are deadlines being thrown at you, but big events are happening: namely, the Law Review Launch Event and mooting finals. On top of that, revision period and exams […]

Law Society campaign week!

  This week is all about campaigning and selling myself! I’m running to be Chairperson of the Law Society next year so hopefully in a few months, I’ll be taking over from Scarlett. She’s done an incredible job this year and has successfully rebuilt the Law Society from the ground up. We’ve been nominated for […]

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 […]
