Uni is what you make of it

  Recently, I was working an Open Day as a Law School Student Ambassador and a parent asked me what kinds of networking opportunities there are available for law students. I rattled off my usual list: Law Society competitions and moot winners receive work experiences or offers to shadow lawyers/judges, barristers and solicitors come in […]

Friendships at university

  University is a strange time because we live in such a bubble. It’s a strange isolation from the real world that will never be replicated at any other time in your life. Time seems to go at a different speed to the rest of the world – slow and quick all at the same […]

Flourish Fair

  On 9th and 10th October, the uni held a Flourish Fair for helping students get settled into uni life, whether it’s for the first time or the sixth time (or anything in between). Below are some highlights I got while visiting – I’ll be blogging more about some of the stalls that were there […]

Lei, You’ve Taught Me A Lot

Lei, You’ve Taught Me A Lot

  My time at Leicester has genuinely been the best of my life so far. As cringey as that sounds, it’s true.   So, here is a lengthy account of some of the greatest things I’ve learned from my time at Leicester:   1. Follow your gut. It’s usually right.   Something I’ve ¬†come to […]

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. […]

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

John Mayer Day

  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 […]

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

  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 […]

To all Creators: You are a Masterpiece

To all Creators: You are a Masterpiece

  Thursday 11th May – otherwise known as ‘JOHN MAYER DAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!’ to me and Lucie. It has been months since we’d booked the tickets to see her favourite artist, and the excitement was UNREAL. Lucie cried hysterically when we saw an underground tube sign that welcomed the John Mayer fans and wrote sentences by including¬†the […]

Don’t be a Lame Duck

Don’t be a Lame Duck

  A common misconception is that you have to know someone for a really long time for them to become really close to you.   It’s true, when you go through a lot with someone you can grow closer. You learn more about them because you’re faced with so many different situations. In university you […]
