What I’ve learned from job hunting, Pt. II

  In reading tons of job postings, I’ve come to realise that there are common threads in terms of what employers look for in their applicants, so I’ve listed some important points in my last blog post. I’m sure I haven’t uncovered every single common thread, and it differs industry to industry, but the jobs I […]

What I’ve learned from job hunting, Pt. I

  I mentioned in an earlier blog post that I’ve been searching for a job this summer, and this is my first time job hunting ever. It’s harder than I thought and there’s an entire process to it that I had no idea existed! I thought my CV was pretty strong before I started filling […]

Happy 150th, Canada!

  So, today is 30th June, which means tomorrow is 1st July. The 1st of July is a sacred day for all Canadians around the world. It is the birthdate of Canada, the celebration of our confederacy, affectionately known as Canada Day.   This year, Canada is turning a grand 150 years old, so the […]

Contrary to popular belief, studying law is not hard!

  I hope everyone’s summers are going well so far! I’m back in Canada for the holiday, and although it’s nice to be home with family, it’s certainly not a time for relaxation. I’ve got about 5 and a half different things on my plate currently! Now, please excuse me while I go to my […]

Summer is here!

  First of all, CONGRATULATIONS to everyone on finishing a/another year at Leicester! There is no victory too small to celebrate and just getting through the year is a huge achievement.   Now it’s time to relax for the summer before getting back into it! But (and excuse me for pulling a classic Law Student […]

The photo I sent to Scarlett after I found out the concert was sold out and burst into tears

John Mayer Day

  So, on 11th May 2017, I saw John Mayer in concert at The O2 in London. I wanted to write a blog post about it the next day, and here’s what I came up with:   As you may have read in Scarlett’s latest blog, we went to London to see John Mayer in […]

Learn from me and don’t take the easy way out

  As many of my friends are aware, I ‘have a degree in Music’ from the Canadian university I attended before coming to Leicester. We’ll get to that.   In law, we get the rare treat of being able to selectively revise for our exams. Naturally, it’s not recommended, but it’s the most strategic way […]

Take everything you see with a grain of salt

  In the tumultuous time that is revision and exams (1 down, 2 to go!!), I was having a spontaneous late-night chat with my housemate the other night. We chatted about various things, but the last thing she said really stuck with me. She told me that, in reading through my blog posts, she felt […]

Don’t give up!

  It’s the last week of revision, before exams start, so everyone is in panic mode. But, have no fear – I’m here to help! Thought of the day: take good care of yourself and revision will fall into place. All you have to do is suffer through these next few weeks, and then summer officially […]

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 […]
