A wholesome few days in Yorkshire and Map the System Semi-Finalists!

The Easter holidays are flying by! We are already ten days in and so much has happened. Thankfully, unlike the Christmas holidays, I didn’t succumb to complete exhaustion so our trip back to Yorkshire was enjoyed to its full extent. Alongside lots of tasty homemade food and Easter chocolate, we threw in some great workouts,… Continue reading A wholesome few days in Yorkshire and Map the System Semi-Finalists!

Happy Easter 🐣🐰 we made it to the holidays…

And just like that, Hilary (or Hellary, as it’s more commonly known) is done and dusted! Celebrating Michaela’s Good Friday birthday! Quite the epic of a term, culminating in a Business Finance exam and submitting our team 3,000 word Capitalism in Debate report. We celebrated Michaela’s birthday on Friday, once all assessments were complete. And… Continue reading Happy Easter 🐣🐰 we made it to the holidays…

04:35 seems like the best time to finish this book 😂 Half-way through assessments fortnight and we have handed in our GOTO report and presentation slides ahead of the actual presentation tomorrow; completed our “Capitalism in Debate” debate on whether the Alliance for Automobile Innovation should be allowed to lobby the US government; and I… Continue reading 🤩 My 50th post! 🤩 The end of Hell-ary is in sight…sleepless nights and making it onto the Dean’s list…

Hilary by name, Hell-ary by nature…

Ok disclaimer: yes, we are renaming this term “Hell-ary” but let’s all remember I do love it here and I’m enjoying Hellary so much, it’s just a lot right now! Still on the sofa resting the ankle 😫 I can see why normal undergraduate and postgraduate terms are only eight weeks long. They are intense.… Continue reading Hilary by name, Hell-ary by nature…

Prime Minister’s Questions…

Yes that is Theresa May on a Zoom call with me! Wow. What. A. Week. This week has been a big one for me: I’ve had some personal successes which have been great to celebrate, and we’ve been allowed back in the Business School which has made lockdown life feel a little bit more like… Continue reading Prime Minister’s Questions…

Blue skies at the Business School We’re starting with good news today, people, as this is a positive space and as much as Covid really does try it’s best to get us down (and don’t get me wrong, sometimes it really does), we have some positive news to start the blog.

Lockdown 3.0 + Assessment Week 3.0 = a brutal combination…

Another one down... This week has felt like the longest week yet, whilst simultaneously feeling like I was rapidly running out of time. Monday seems an awful long time ago, but I distinctly remember panicking on Tuesday that I didn’t have enough time to finish my paper. It’s been a strange one... “5th week blues”… Continue reading Lockdown 3.0 + Assessment Week 3.0 = a brutal combination…

How is it February already? Boss Women take on EP and a 100km cycling week…

A rare sunny day overlooking our friends 👻 I think I prefaced last weeks blog with “this is going to be a long one” (or if I didn’t, I meant to...) So this weeks blog, I’ll preface with the opposite; this is going to be a pretty quick read because let’s face it, nobody is… Continue reading How is it February already?

Lessons from Buddha and getting the heels out…

Where do I begin? Firstly, and most importantly, is to say thank you to each and everyone of you who sent messages, cards, flowers, chocolate, books, and everything else after last weeks blog post. Honestly, the response has been unreal. This is my 42nd blog post (how crazy is this?!) and the post last week… Continue reading Lessons from Buddha and getting the heels out…
