So, what exactly do you do?

“So, what exactly do you with all the free time you have?” – This is a question I have been asked over the year on many occasions and to be honest, I am starting to get pretty annoyed. I am fully aware that during the teaching periods us sociology students have very few contact hours […]

Positivity is key; a post for the worriers and tired ‘over-achievers’ this exam season.

Positivity is key; a post for the worriers and tired ‘over-achievers’ this exam season.

Usually during exam season, I am the typical sleepless, stressed and crazed looking girl standing in the corner, mumbling memorised notes under my breath whilst clutching my 7th cup of coffee.

Conquering the control this exam season.

There are two words I can utter to induce even the tiniest jilt of horror in every single student, at every different academic stage – those words? Exam. Season. Yes, folks!

However, despite my admiration for the typical Brits’ manners and the rate […]

The infamous internet trolls.

A new online phenomena is taking over the 21st Century and finding itself dabbling in the criminal justice system – we’ve all seen it, heard of it, or maybe even been a perpetrator or victim of it; internet trolling.
