What I’ve learned from job hunting, Pt. II

  In reading tons of job postings, I’ve come to realise that there are common threads in terms of what employers look for in their applicants, so I’ve listed some important points in my last blog post. I’m sure I haven’t uncovered every single common thread, and it differs industry to industry, but the jobs I […]

What I’ve learned from job hunting, Pt. I

  I mentioned in an earlier blog post that I’ve been searching for a job this summer, and this is my first time job hunting ever. It’s harder than I thought and there’s an entire process to it that I had no idea existed! I thought my CV was pretty strong before I started filling […]

I left Leicester

I left Leicester

  Yesterday I moved out of Leicester for good.     It was a surreal day – one that I thought would take forever to come around, but it was over so quickly. Too quickly.   I can remember getting out of the car in Beaumont Hall in Oadby on my very first day. September […]

Contrary to popular belief, studying law is not hard!

  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

Sunshine, Rainbows and Everything Wonderful

  University is stressful – especially at this time of year with assessed essays and exams looming.   What annoys me to no end is everyone moaning, comparing knowledge for no reason other than to make themselves feel better – leaving others feeling worse, and people sharing an endless supply of dismal posts about not doing […]
