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 a minute.   In law, we get the rare treat of being able to selectively revise for our exams. It’s not recommended, per se, but it’s […]

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! Moral of the blog post: 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

My First New Year’s Resolution

  2016 has been a crazy year, to say the least. I’m finally studying a subject that I genuinely enjoy studying, I’ve met people who I’m absolutely grateful to have in my life, and I can feel myself changing in ways I’m really happy about.   Whenever January 1st comes around I never make a New […]

Let’s talk about anxiety

  Now that term one of this year is over, I’ve been reflecting on this past term and I can confidently say that it has been one of the hardest few months of my life (side note: this is my fifth year of uni, so that’s saying something! Yeah, yeah, I know I’m old, blah blah blah). […]

The Puzzle of Motivation

  Motivation is pretty slippery and difficult to hold on to. The Oxford Dictionary defines ‘motivation’ as the ‘desire or willingness to do something; enthusiasm’. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? It’s more than just simply having a desire or willingness and being enthusiastic about something; you truly have to have an impassioned desire or an intense willingness or fervent enthusiasm!!!!! to actually get something […]

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

  It’s that time of year. It’s officially November. It is time to start celebrating Christmas.   That’s right, whoever told you there’s only 12 days of Christmas lied to you, because there are, in fact, 55 days of Christmas.   Just kidding! Sort of.   Yes, that’s right, I am one of those people that celebrates […]
