Life at UCB through the eyes of our student bloggers

Woooooaah we’re halfway there

Woooooaah we’re halfway there

Hi everyone,

This is going to be my last blog post before Christmas, so I thought I’d use it to reflect on the first semester of my final year.

Things I’ve enjoyed this semester:

  • Making new friends: in September I moved in with new housemates and have got along really well with them all.
  • Reuniting with old ones: it has been so lovely to see my course mates again after a summer apart!
  • The things I’ve done in my free time: there have been a few cinema trips to see some great films this autumn (Kingsman, Thor Ragnarok and Lego Ninjago), I also went to the theatre to see Hairspray, attended a Jim Kay book signing of his illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and a talk at the British Library.
  • I’m proud of myself for the work ethic I’ve had this term: I have been really motivated and worked really hard this semester and I can’t wait to have a nice break over Christmas.


Looking forward to next semester:

  • My birthday: in February, I’ll be turning 21!
  • Learning new things: I always like the start of new terms because I find starting new modules really interesting.
  • Handing in my dissertation: it’s quite scary to say, but in April my dissertation is due! I’ve made a good start on it, and am enjoying writing it at the moment. I think it’ll be really satisfying to hand in such a large piece of work.
  • Enjoying my last semester at UCB: I can’t quite believe how little time I’ve got left at university, and so I want to make the most of my last few months here.


I hope you have a lovely Christmas break, and I’ll be back with more blog posts in the new year.

Until next time,

Ellie x
