So this my final post for Leicester Studentblogs. Second year is now a mere memory, and I’m fully focussed on the year ahead.
So in every sense, this post is a goodbye. A final farewell and also a piece of gratitude to everyone who had taken the time to read my articles, comment and support me throughout the year.
What started as nothing more than a way to share my experience and give myself something to do, has turned into so much more. Writing these posts has enabled me to learn a lot about myself and how university has changed me, both as a person and in the way I work. But it’s also allowed me to understand other people’s experiences of studying law at Leicester, and be able to see how our experiences have differed; this, in turn, has allowed me to see what had worked for other people and pick up little tidbits of knowledge and action that I can carry into my third year.
Ultimately, though, I really wanted my posts to be able to help others. I know I have a few fun / not-so-helpful articles up also, namely my Studybucks series – but, the main aim of me taking on this role was to produce the content I wish I had as a first year. To create a watertight collection of articles to answer the question I had as a first year, and to provide to aid, help and advise I needed when I was struggling to slide into studying Law; the pressures, the changes and the way I needed to work and study.
So once again, I just want to reiterate my thanks to everyone who read my articles this year – I really hope I’ve helped. And also a huge thank you to the team behind student blogs, for being so great and allowing me such an incredible opportunity.
So if you were a final year and you’ve now finished, congratulations! And if you’re going into first or second year this September, then I wish you bouts of good luck – trust me, you’re going to love it.
