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, but 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 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 […]

You’re you, not them

You’re you, not them

  One thing I advocate a lot is the fact that we should not compare ourselves to others. This is a particularly pertinent issue during exam time when everyone is working towards the same deadlines.   If there’s anything I’ve learned it’s that every person is different. Me, personally? I hate working during the day. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Revision tips, Pt. II

  This is part 2 of Mama Lucie’s revision tips! Let’s just get on with it!   IN THE EXAM I listen to music on my way to the exam and don’t chat to anyone before the exam, because when people cram right before going in, it terrifies me into thinking that I haven’t learned everything. […]

This is my case law chart. I made one for each topic that I revised.

Revision tips, Pt. I

  It’s that time of year – it’s REVISION TIME. In the midst of all the chaos, I wanted to give you some insight on how I study for my exams.   It’s completely okay that you’re not revising and you are, in fact, still learning. It’s okay that you haven’t caught up with all your lectures. […]

Challenge accepted!

  Back in November, I wrote a post about being overwhelmed. Well, guess what? It’s that time of year again! It’s nearing the end of term, and not only are deadlines being thrown at you, but big events are happening: namely, the Law Review Launch Event and mooting finals. On top of that, revision period and exams […]

Three-year or two-year program?

  As you may or may not have noticed, there are a lot of Canadians at Leicester (including me!). A large majority of us come here to study law and that’s thanks to Ben Reed, the Student Recruitment Administrator, and Gemma Turton, the Deputy Undergraduate Admissions Tutor in Law, who travel around Canadian universities speaking about Leicester Law. Their goal is to recruit […]
