My Last Week in Leicester

I’m writing this post on the train home from Leicester, marking the end of my final year as a Leicester student. My final week in Leicester has been eventful to say the least! On Monday I got my results back and found out that I’ve been awarded a First for my degree! I am of course […]

How to save money as a student!

First off, I hope exams went swimmingly for all that took them. The geology department here at Leicester had a two week exam spell where all 1-3rd year students took them. Least to say over that time it was rather… tense. However, our ‘SB room’ (common room) has still got the brown paper up to […]

Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2017!

My apologies for inactivity on the geology blog, Christmas seems to creep up behind you and suddenly before you know it, it’s already here. As always, the presents I have bought are still to be wrapped and the wrapping paper is still in its packet! I guess that’s due to exam prep for January and […]

**A New Project!!! **

Do you want to inspire others into loving your favourite subject? Do you enjoy working as part of a team? If so… Have you ever considered teaching as a career? I certainly have.   My goal began during our careers talk day during the spring semester of my first year here. Like everybody else, I […]

A Gold Presidency!

We all know what happened this morning. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter… it all lit up. Everybody knows that Trump has won the election in the US. To be honest, I wasn’t surprised. More over, I know very little about the parties in America and politics over there. So, without evidence I cannot say I agree or […]

Safe, Healthy and Happy *smile*

The middle of first semester!

Whether you believe it or not we are actually getting close to being in the middle of the second semester, time at uni goes so ridiculously faster don’t you think!  When I think back, this time last year was quite a relaxed semester, with mineralogy being the hardest topic of the freshers year in geology. […]

***Lectures and note taking!***

Hello! Hope you are all well and finding uni life exciting! The start of a new term is always nice, especially since it’s October! October is great, not just because it was my birthday last week – I turned 20 which seems crazy! But just because Autumn is beautiful. I love walking across Victoria Park […]

Alert! New Academic Year Approaching!

Hello all! I hope you’re enjoying your final week of the holidays before the madness of freshers dawns upon us! I thought whilst I was here, contemplating my new time table, I’d tell you what I found useful when preparing for my first few lectures at uni.   Each lecturer has their own unique style […]
