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 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 […]

So…I didn’t get Chairperson!

  After a tough Hustings and a week and a bit of campaigning for the new Law Society elected committee positions, on 17th March 2017, we found out the results. I skimmed through the post on Facebook with eager/nervous anticipation. My thought process was as follows (or something like it):   Okay, here we go. […]

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, if you’re a fan of American football. The quotation just resonated with me the first time I came across it, which is quite rare for me because I consider about […]

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 pasta can get really old, really quickly. Plus, you can only order Domino’s so many times in one week […]

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 and see myself changing in ways I’m really happy about.   Whenever January 1st comes around I never make […]
