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.

Sunshine, Rainbows and Everything Wonderful

Sunshine, Rainbows and Everything Wonderful

  University is stressful – especially at this time of year with assessed essays and exams looming.   What annoys me to no end is everyone moaning, comparing knowledge for no reason other than to make themselves feel better – leaving others feeling worse, and people sharing an endless supply of dismal posts about not doing […]

Challenge accepted!

Feeling overwhelmed? Don’t worry – so is everyone else

How I stay organised and manage my time

  Does anyone else have that feeling that they’ve already been in Leicester for ages even though it’s only been one week? I just got here last Sunday (25th September), and I’m writing this on Sunday (2nd October), and so many things have happened this week that I feel like I’ve already been here for weeks! And how is […]
