Easter holiday – OurWarwick

Easter holiday

Hi everybody 🙂

With 10 weeks of my first year complete, there is only 10 more to go! It seems weird to think that this time last year, I was stressing about my A2 exams, it just seems like such a long time ago…

Well, Easter:

I have a fair amount of work planned: I aim to get 5 briefing papers completed for my ‘Foundations of Political Economy’ module, along with a start on my report asessing a pressure group for the ‘Political Resesarch in the 21st century’ module. Along with this, I want to revisit some lectures and do some reading – so very busy!

Nevertheless, it is also a good time to catch up with friends back home.

A few days ago, I met up with a school friend for lunch: *Shout out to Jenna*


Secretly impressed by the fact that I have managed to avoid falling into the ‘pasta for breakfast, lunch and dinner’ trap at university…

We also had some bubble tea, IT IS THE BEST THING EVER. If there is anything I miss about home whilst at university, it is this.

Which reminds me of my application to become a politics student blogger, I thought I would bring out my inner creativitea by writing some tea puns, that daunting wait to see whether I would even be taken seriously felt like years… well, I guess it paid off since I am here blogging!

I also met up for dinner at a local Indian restaurant with a friend from university *Shout out to Anisha*



It is always nice to know people at university living near your home town, one way to do this is by joining societies and more likely than not – you will find somebody living in your area! This also applies if you are an international student, there are so many cultural societies where you can be sure to find international students from your country. For instance, my flatmate Ivana is part of the Bulgarian Society, and has made so many friends from where she lives in Bulgaria! Of course, you shouldn’t limit yourself to this – which is what makes Warwick so great – it is very diverse and you are guaranteed to meet people from all over the world.

Well, I should probably get on with all of the essays I have due next term…

So, I hope you all have a lovely Easter, remember to have some rest and don’t stress yourself out with work!
