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…

Distinction…and proud!

First essay back deserves some bubbles Who can remember way back when, many months ago, “Lockdown 2.0” had just taken its grip on the country, I was obsessed with making pancakes for weekend breakfasts, and we celebrated handing in a 3,000 word essay on British Airways...? My blog post for the week was entitled; “I… Continue reading Distinction…and proud!

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…

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…

Back into the swing of things: Hilary Week 0 done at 100mph…GOTO, Workouts & Lockdown 3.0…

I’m still not entirely sure why we have a Week 0 at the start of term. My guess is because our core classes haven’t actually started (Strategy and Firms & Markets this term) and Week 0 is always a bit “different”. Week 0 in Hilary Term is all about GOTO (Global Opportunities and Threats: Oxford)… Continue reading Back into the swing of things: Hilary Week 0 done at 100mph…GOTO, Workouts & Lockdown 3.0…

Nine weeks in: a mix of feelings and another busy week…

Catherine the college dog It’s been a busy week. It’s been full on. When don’t I say this though... Usually I’m super up-beat about how full on it’s been and how much I’m enjoying cramming everything into 24 hours. However, today is not that day. Sorry to disappoint. I did, for once, think about not… Continue reading Nine weeks in: a mix of feelings and another busy week…
