It’s Not All About The Work

University. Three or more years of essays, exams, presentations, all nighters in the library and exam-related stress. There’s no denying that studying at university is difficult. Yes, it’s stressful. Yes, sometimes you’ll question why you ever thought it was a good idea. Yes, sometimes you’ll struggle to meet a deadline. HOWEVER: the best advice I ever […]

Go, go, go!

“Your final year will go by so quickly!” Eight words every final year student is told thousands upon thousands of times. Eight words every final year student doubts…until they realise that they’re practically already half way through Term 1. I cannot describe how fast the last four weeks have gone by.

I did in-fact have a French speaking exam and a Linguistics presentation last week and I have 3 more assessments this coming week. But all that won’t stop me […]

Christmas at Cadbury’s World

Christmas at Cadbury’s World

My Saturday was a very chocolatey one. The Baking Society made their second annual trip to Cadbury’s World, in festive fancy dress (I’m the snow-woman!) We met on campus at 10am prompt so that we could maximise the day of chocolate fun! After a hour and a quarter’s worth of ‘are we there yets’, we […]
