So, as you may well have seen, we’ve had some heavy snow here in Worcester. It doesn’t take more than a dusting for the midlands to come to what can only be described as a ‘standstill’. Road closures, snow drifts and freezing cold weather make for a fierce combination.
The Worcester Award is a student employability award that recognises extracurricular commitment, such as work experience and volunteering hours. Employers think highly of people who have the Award, making them stand out from other job candidates.
I like to look at every semester like a blank canvas; a chance to really get your act together and become a better version of yourself.
Maybe you didn’t quite get the grades you wanted last semester, or you’ve set a standard for yourself that you want to maintain. Whatever the reason, the new semester is your chance to make a new habit stick, be productive and really excel.
Throughout my time at university, I have made friends with people who are single, in new relationships, in long distance relationships… you name it! They all face their own trials and tribulations alongside student life.
For those of you that are concerned about making your relationship work at university, I thought I would share my own experience and advice on the matter.
Over the years, I’ve heard no end of criticism and “jokes” which dismiss and demean the creative arts. It can be quite disheartening, but one thing I’ve learnt is to take everything with a pinch of salt – we know how hard we work, and that’s what matters!
Here are just a few things that I advise you never to say to a Drama student. Or if you are a Drama student, a few things that I’m sure you are tired of hearing:
Last year I wrote a blog post giving you a tour of my on-campus accommodation – now that I’m in my second year I thought you’d like to have a look around my new house!
Each year the stereotypical New Year’s resolutions appear; the gyms are full and the leftover Christmas chocolate is locked away out of sight.
I think resolutions are great – there is always potential for improvement and change can be good! However, with the busy nature of university life, it can be hard to find the time to achieve your resolutions and disheartening if you fall short of your ambitions.
When thinking about my time at University, I want to make the absolute most of the experience. For me, first year was a learning curve and there were times that were definitely less successful than others.
I always strive to better myself both academically and personally, so as a result I thought I would comprise a ‘bucket list’ of things that I want to improve, achieve or experience this year.
