Work hard, party hard, semester 2 here we come!

Looking back to the festive period, right up until the end of January time really has flown. In this blog I hope to remind you just how much there is to do, how important it is to both work hard and play hard, and just how quickly time can pass by.

#TimeToTalk

Thursday 2nd February 2017 marked the day of the worldwide #TimeToTalk campaign which was dedicated to recognising the power of conversation in tackling mental health conditions.

Back at home, back at Loughborough!

Being back in England from study abroad is kind of weird but exciting too. I mean of course I miss Australia, who wouldn’t, but at the same time it’s great to be back; seeing everyone and getting back into the swing of things.

Footprints on the sands of time

It is the start of a new semester and that means normal services have resumed for me. The nice thing about his time of the year is that the days have already been getting noticeably longer which makes my usual routine of early morning so much better.

Beyond the lecture theatre

It’s February and I’m so surprised that my brain is still functioning at this point. Last semester, in total, I wrote about 10,000 words worth of coursework. That’s basically a dissertation.

My first flight

As someone who has anxiety, it has always scared me to get on an aeroplane and fly across the world. However, on 26th January 2017 everything changed.

Mindfulness in Mysore

I’m going to take the opportunity of this month’s blog to speak about my brief encounter with the University’s student support services, the Disability Office in particular.
