“Just for one day…”

Have you ever wondered what will happen to your freedom after university? I’m not talking about liberty or free will but your spare time. Maybe you’ll disagree, but for me, I can do whatever my heart desires in Leicester. No parents saying, “No Leon, you can’t do this.” If I want to go gym at […]

My first city break in Prague

Whilst at a wedding last month, my cousin came to me and said “Hey Leon, we’re (him and my other cousin) going to Prauge soon, wanna come?” And I was like, “Hell yeah!” What a great decision I made.   Prague (In Czech Republic) is a vibrant city to visit. Firstly, let me disappoint you […]

Coming home?

After 52 years of endless waiting and watching, could the trophy be on route to England? I don’t know what it is but there seems to be a real belief in the streets of England that it really is coming home.   From watching England, it’s obvious that we have a squad that is young […]

An Indian Engagement

Last Sunday, I attended an official registry for my cousin. The registry took 20 minutes and it was very cute. Now although my cousin was officially married, in the eyes of my family, she was not. See in our family, you have to go through all the rituals before you are considered by your relatives […]

Vision Board – Your summer goals

Aside from the World Cup (which is an absolute thriller by the way), a lot of the summer holidays so far has just been on setting new goals.   One hobby I have is reading. Not fictional books but books on self improvement. One particular concept caught my attention; A Vision Board. Here is how […]

Support the 3 Lions

England’s World Cup campaign finally kicks off today and after seeing some very unpredictable performances already, I think this could be anybody’s game.   The World Cup has come at a perfect time for me. I have no job and no exams so if I can literally watch all the games. But of course, I […]

Back to Coventry without an internship

Since arriving back home, I have been constantly pressured by family to look for something to do, I guess they are not happy that I’m excessively relaxing. It feels a little disappointing to not have an internship but the truth is, I was unsure of what to do during second year and therefore, I did […]

See you soon UOL

Celebration times have begun as all Maths students have officially finished exams. But unfortunately, this also meant for me saying “See you later” to Leicester as I prepare for a long 4 month break.   I cannot describe how quickly my second year has passed. It’s hard to appreciate every moment you experience but I […]

Maths vs Law – Q & A

Have I ever mentioned that my flatmate Emily studies law? We both study intense subjects but I have noticed some peculiar differences between the two courses. So, now that both courses’ exams have finished, I’ve decided to explore the distinctions between Maths and Law. (If you think Maths students have it hard, brace yourself!)   […]

Your survival guide for Mathematics

It’s presumed that you have to be intelligent to study Maths at University. In my opinion, this is wrong! My experience has suggested that Maths is not about being smart, it’s about having the 5 R’s:   Remembering definitions – Some exam questions will simply test your memory. As for the others, it’s just about applying […]
