Three months off is a long time – a very very long time! Plenty of time to see friends, family, have a good catch up and even earn some money. However, it is also plenty of time to gain some valuable work experience in an industry your degree potentially leads to or perhaps one that […]
Not got any plans for Not got any plans for the summer yet, as a result of your cleared out bank account? Think as a student you can’t enjoy your summer break with a festival? Think again! Summer is the season of festivals, yet despite the UK weather being slightly hit and miss, we have […]
Phew – another year done and dusted. Whilst many of you are wrapping up the end of what I’m sure was a stressful exam period and having a well-deserved rest, some of you may start to think towards finding summertime work to replenish your funds (that have no doubt taken a hiding over the […]
Pizza – renowned for being the ultimate student food, not to mention the one and only cure after a big night out. In this time of need, you want something hot, delicious and made exactly the way you like right there, right then to dig into. And let’s be honest, frozen pizzas don’t seem to […]
At this time of year long and gruelling library sessions are inevitable, especially if you find working at home is too distracting. Some of you may as well call the library your second home. But if you’re anything like me that usually ends up about 30% work 30% procrastination and 40% people watching.
As the dreaded assessment period draws ever closer once again, you may be starting to look at your never-ending revision checklist. But first off, ask yourself a few questions…
Most couples nowadays have to limit the amount they spend on each other for birthdays, Christmas and day to day activities. For student couples, this can be even more difficult. So when it comes to Valentine’s Day, as much as you might want to splash out and treat your loved one to an outlandish evening out (pretending not to worry about the mounting bill) your bank account may not agree. Valentine’s Day can often mean bars and restaurants bump up the prices and restaurants will no doubt be heaving.
As many of us are now back at university, a new semester is as good a time as any to try and better yourself in areas that, perhaps in your first semester, were lacking slightly. For example, want to try and improve your attendance or grades? Maybe try and lose some of those pesky pounds you put on over the last few months? Or even being more frugal with your loan?
Around this time last year, my current housemates and I started the search for our new digs for second year. Traditionally second and third years will move out of university halls and into a private student home with a letting agency. Some universities will recommend ‘student approved’ letting agencies that deal specifically with student homes, for example, my university endorses Liverpool Student Homes.
Something that’s not the first thing that springs to mind when discussing student issues – depression. If you ask most people to sum up their student experience in a couple of words, you will most likely get something along the lines of “the best years of my life”. This is what makes depression and students so dangerous – it’s under the radar and very rarely talked about. So what about those students who aren’t lucky enough to have the same experience?
Have you made it your New Year’s resolution to get fit? How’s that going so far, bearing in mind only 8% of resolutions are successful … Not a surprise really, especially for students who are usually up to their eyes in revision, exams and deadlines throughout January. But so what if your resolution didn’t go to plan – there’s no time like the present to restart your get fit goals!
I think every person who has been to university, college and even school has felt under pressure, because of exams, revision, money, as well as having so many other typical teenage problems going on at the same time...
For many of us University is done for the summer, and now there’s a whole four months until it starts again. What have you got planned? Catching up with old friends, enjoying the weather (if possible), relaxing, going on holiday and probably getting nagged by your parents on a daily basis - but they’ve got a point you know...
Here we are at the end of the Student Summer Detox with guilt free and healthy snack and treat ideas. For those of you dedicated readers of the SSD (i.e. Student Summer Detox), if anything I want you to have learnt from these blogs is that cooking and healthy eating isn’t impossible or boring – there’s no deprivation or starvation, just enjoying fresh and nutritious food and feeling good on the inside!
Time flies when you’re having fun, and before you know it you’ll be packing your stuff back up even though it only seems like yesterday when you moved in. Hopefully for most of you in first year at Uni, living in halls of residence has been a good experience, sure it’s never a smooth ride for anybody but hopefully you’ve had fun, met some great people and most importantly enjoyed yourself.
