April blog

Posted by Rory

So it’s April now and crunch time for many university students I imagine, as exams/final deadlines are just around the corner. For me I have exams which have left me feeling very anxious most the time, but I feel like I’ve managed to channel this into productively through revision, and actually am starting to feel more confident. Exams are […]

February – reflection Hi everyone, Hope you have all been okay, I know the early months of a new year can make peoples mood drop. Once again, I have found my mood to sink pretty low at times this month, but with some good friends and some personal reflection, I’ve realised that I’m doing okay […]

Summer….Still as Busy

Posted by Pete

I often cannot underestimate the power and the benefits of remaining busy and the importance of maintaining a routine! As students, it is almost impossible to maintain a routine unless of course you are lucky enough to have the same start times of each days,  made difficult still with the excessive work we have to […]

Carrying on…!

Posted 7th May 2013 by Dean

So, the weather has finally turned really nice, and that has been pretty good! It’s just a shame that rather than being outside enjoying it, I have to be cooped up in the lab working away! Things have been pretty busy, but mostly just getting on with my work really. I have also been spending […]

Trudging on

Posted 3rd May 2013 by Martha

Work is still enjoyable and I’m getting on great with most of the staff. I’m surprised at how well I’ve stuck to this job. Although at the moment I do really need the money because my bursary has been stopped due to my poor attendance. I really am trying to buck up my ideas, but […]

End of Year

Sorry for the delay – Exams Exams Exams = Stress Stress Stress

Posted 1st May 2013 by Joelle

Hi all, Well, the Easter break has come round for most! I would like a longer break, but I will be making the most of being off from Good Friday until Monday. I definitely need to recharge my batteries before getting back into my work! Work has been getting pretty stressful recently as I realise […]
