The past few months have felt a little strange. Things have felt super rushed but at the same time really slow. My exams fall after Christmas and last for a two week period. Then it's straight into new modules. So there's not much breathing room between exams and modules. I honestly feel I haven't had… Continue reading An Honest Uni Reflection
