My favourite podcasts to listen to

  I love podcasts. I listen to them on coach rides, on my walk to town, while I’m getting ready in the morning, while I’m cooking…just any time I have to myself, really. These podcasts are all free to subscribe and listen to, so you really cannot go wrong with them! They’re funny, they’re informative, […]

How to succeed in anything you do

  I love podcasts, and recently, I took a break from TED talks and How I Built This and I turned my attention to the Good Life Project podcast (which, I think, is pretty self-explanatory).   The episode that I listened to is entitled, ‘To Succeed at Anything, Do This’, so I was expecting some […]

Friendships at university

  University is a strange time because we live in such a bubble. It’s a strange isolation from the real world that will never be replicated at any other time in your life. Time seems to go at a different speed to the rest of the world – slow and quick all at the same […]

Here’s why I love the uni gym

  I cannot get enough of the Danielle Brown Sports Centre here on campus!! Especially during revision period – it’s one of the few things that keep me sane. I like to schedule my revision around gym classes, so that I have no excuse to be lazy and not go.   There are so many […]

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 […]

Flourish Fair

  On 9th and 10th October, the uni held a Flourish Fair for helping students get settled into uni life, whether it’s for the first time or the sixth time (or anything in between). Below are some highlights I got while visiting – I’ll be blogging more about some of the stalls that were there […]

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 […]

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 struck a chord with me. She told me that, in reading through my blog posts, […]
