Happy 150th, Canada!

  So, today is 30th June, which means tomorrow is 1st July. The 1st of July is a sacred day for all Canadians around the world. It is the birthdate of Canada, the celebration of our confederacy, affectionately known as Canada Day.   This year, Canada is turning a grand 150 years old, so the […]

I left Leicester

I left Leicester

  Yesterday I moved out of Leicester for good.     It was a surreal day – one that I thought would take forever to come around, but it was over so quickly. Too quickly.   I can remember getting out of the car in Beaumont Hall in Oadby on my very first day. September […]

Contrary to popular belief, studying law is not hard!

  I hope everyone’s summers are going well so far! I’m back in Canada for the holiday, and although it’s nice to be home with family, it’s certainly not a time for relaxation. I’ve got about 5 and a half different things on my plate currently! Now, please excuse me while I go to my […]

Summer is here!

  First of all, CONGRATULATIONS to everyone on finishing a/another year at Leicester! There is no victory too small to celebrate and just getting through the year is a huge achievement.   Now it’s time to relax for the summer before getting back into it! But (and excuse me for pulling a classic Law Student […]

Let’s Disko: Sausage Rolls, Angels, and Three Years of Memories

Let’s Disko: Sausage Rolls, Angels, and Three Years of Memories

  One constant in my life at Leicester for the past three years has been the uni club (the O2)’s night out on a Wednesday called Let’s Disko. I ended up going pretty much every single week for three years – now that’s commitment! It’s the cheesy pop hits night, which is so my thing. […]


  It’s been a wonderful week after exams trying to catch up with everyone I’ve neglected during revision.   This has included lots of pub sessions, a games night and shopping trips!   But then Lucie and I headed to Amsterdam for a few days to set off on our art tour. We explored the […]

John Mayer Day

The photo I sent to Scarlett after I found out the concert was sold out and burst into tears

  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, and 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 […]

Time’s Up

Time’s Up

  And in what felt like no time at all, it’s all over.   This week I finished my Law degree, and it’s been a weird one.   On Sunday it was my 21st birthday, and whilst I thought that it would be horrendous, because it was followed by two consecutive days of exams, the […]

Learn from me and don’t take the easy way out

For your viewing pleasure

  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 […]
