So, the past few weeks has not been without disruption for myself. Compared to some of peers studying other subject, us sociology students had the many ‘cancelled’ lecture, seminars and open office hours. For instance, out of my nine contact hours in the week six of those hours were ‘cancelled’. But, I guess this will […]

If I was to be asked if I had any bad habits it would be that I drink too much coffee. My day does not start without it and my day is not complete till I’ve consumed at least another two cups from my morning fix. With the university being so centrally located, it is […]

“4 weeks till Christmas Faheema” is what I keep telling myself as soon as I wake up. I was under the illusion that second year would not be that different to first year but the first half of semester one was an eye opener to say the least. Not saying that first year is a […]

This time last year, I was buried in revision for my exams. The exams that would determine where I would continue my studies. Now look, here I am, one year at the end of my first year of uni! On one hand I am a bit freaked out at how fast time has flown but […]

The final week of the semester!
Posted by Faheema in Sociology on December 5, 2016
The final week semester has come round so quickly, I am currently in the middle of writing my final essay to be handed in at the end of this week! But last week the university put on a Christmas market which really helped shift some attention away from deadlines approaching, and to be honest this […]
The Life and Times of a Fresher.
Posted by Amy-Rose in Sociology on January 30, 2013
According to the holy grail that is ‘Urban Dictionary’, Fresher’s are people “known for their love of having a good time”, according to the god-father of the internet (Google), it means “not salty” – whilst it could be debated both hold snippets of the truth, I’ve decided this particular post of mine will provide you a […]
Chocolate covered Woks in London.
Posted by Amy-Rose in Sociology on December 30, 2012
A very belated Merry Christmas to you all! If you aren’t fretting over what feels like a few gained pounds due to chocolate consumption, then I salute you! I, myself, have reached the stage where I am no longer rewarding myself with a chocolate pretzel if I reach the end of a page whilst revising; […]
