Graduation Outfit!

Leicester, it’s been a pleasure!

Last week I celebrated my graduation from University and as a result, this will be my final blog post. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my experiences and that you may have been inspired by at least one thing I’ve written. Graduation was a weird, yet wonderful experience. It was a great opportunity to see […]

Never Grow Up

Never Grow Up

Never Grow Up by Taylor Swift is one of my favourite songs at the moment. It’s about wanting to grow up but then when you finally have grown up, you wish you hadn’t. When I was little, my mum used to say that I should live in NeverLand because I didn’t like it when things […]

It’s not over till it’s over

Well, I have done it. I’ve just sat the final exam of my university career. It’s such a strange feeling, knowing that I won’t ever sit another exam at the University of Leicester. It’s been a rather stressful few weeks but now I have some time to enjoy being a student, relax with my friends […]

It’s the final countdown…

The final countdown was the song of choice to be quoted to me this week by my student worker at Church yesterday. At the time, I appreciated the humour of the situation. But now, as I sit in the library at 9am on a monday morning with just a week to go until my first […]


Rejection to Crunch Time

The last weekend of the holiday is upon us and it suddenly dawned on me, that in just over 2 weeks, I will be sitting my first exam. I’ve been taking it easy with revision lately, doing a little bit here and there, but still making time to see my friends and relax. I found […]

“And now we wait.”

Whilst revising last week, I embarked upon a marathon of the 8 Harry Potter films. Like so many others, I grew up reading the stories and then got hooked on the films. Believe it or not, having them on in the background helps me to focus, because I’ve watched them so many times, just hearing […]


The Easter holidays are upon us. For most students, that means 5 weeks of sitting around, seeing family, and contemplating revision. For the final year students, it’s definitely a different story! I’ve been revising solidly for 3 days now and I’m already bored. But, I know that in the long run, it’s going to pay […]


“Time is of the essence.” “So much to do, so little time.” “All the time in the world.” Time is a massive factor in our lives. It dictates our whole existence. It tells us when we should be places, when we eat, when we sleep. It’s pretty much in control. And it’s always playing on […]

The Right to Remain

The Right to Remain

Have you ever wondered why people take notice when you say “I have the right…”? We all have rights. The right to be born, the right to be equal, the right to have rights without discrimination. And yet there are some in society who make a noise when their rights are ignored, but refuse to […]

Ladies and Gentlemen, Thank You and Goodnight

Ladies and Gentlemen, Thank You and Goodnight

Last week, I was lucky enough to win tickets to be in the audience of the final ever tour of Calendar Girls at De Montfort Hall on their opening press night. To say it was fabulous was an understatement. I’m sure many of you will have heard about the Calendar Girls but for those who […]
