Not my worst day…

The pass list for my course at university was released last week and we now know our results, whether we will have to retake and if we will be proceeding to the next year. It was such a bittersweet moment as I was so pleased that I had done well but also so sad that many of my friends were unhappy. I find it really hard to feel joy when people I care about cannot share in it with me.

Throughout the years I have always found that very short periods of intense revision works for me and has led to my best performance. However, it is usually not a pretty process and during exam season I was an absolute mess – this is what happens when you give yourself two weeks to cover an entire year’s worth of work. I lived in the library on diet coke, haribos starmix…

No one puts Baby in a box…

I hope you all enjoyed the 'Dirty dancing' reference in the title even half as much as I enjoyed thinking of it. Girls just love to have puns, eh? As I get closer to graduation, I have been considering all my choices that have led to this point. I think it is common for people… Continue reading No one puts Baby in a box…

Sit down, be humble…

We live in a world where we are taught to be independent. Every one has an opinion on everything and often we do not take the time to know our limits and accept that other people may know more about a topic that we do.

I know it has been the longest time since I published something new. Can I even call myself a blogger anymore, considering I have not actually blogged in months? Anyway - thank you all for sticking with me through the drought and carrying on reading my old stuff. It is my fourth and final year… Continue reading Align yourself with success…

Before him, there was you

So today is International Woman's Day. What a time to be alive! I have loved seeing people posting all over my social media accounts celebrating all these inspirational women, sharing their own experiences and pushing for a more equal society. I had been wondering if I had anything to contribute to the existing rhetoric and… Continue reading Before him, there was you

Talk less, smile more

I was recently in a seminar on company law at university when the seminar tutor told me to be quiet and let others speak. He said I should "give a chance to those who needed to spend more time thinking before they answered and did not want to impulsively put their hands up". Anyone in… Continue reading Talk less, smile more

Say NO to this…

So after what was the most amazing summer of my life, I am now back at University for my third year. It feels like only yesterday that I was writing about freshers on here and now I'm nearly finished. All my fellow musical theatre lovers will have noticed the 'Hamilton' reference in the title. It's… Continue reading Say NO to this…
