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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
