University of Leicester Freshers Advice and Tips

freshers

I know a lot of these university posts are going up at the moment and they’re all kind of generic and offer the same sorts of advice, so I thought I’d make mine a little more University specific, for anyone who might be heading to the University of Leicester in October. There is some good general advice for anyone going to university but if you’re headed to UoL then hopefully this’ll help!

Eden: An LUTheatre Production

lutheatre eden

I recently took part in a production called Eden with Leicester University Theatre Society and I’m incredibly proud of the results. I just wanted to show some photos of the production, taken by the wonderful Benjamin Alborough for the society… I’m hoping there’ll be a YouTube video I can show soon as well! 

Eden tells the story of Abel, an enthusiastic novice priest fresh out of the seminary who is beginning to realise the liberal style of thinking he assimilated in France isn’t welcome in dictatorial Portugal. He’s relieved when he meets the wealthy, eccentric Cesar Barbosa, and finds himself swept up in his new friend’s glamorous lifestyle. However, as he finds himself increasingly immersed in the family’s issues, he begins to realise things might not be as perfect as they seem…

March 2014 in Review

march 2014

I want to share with you my March favourites and my experiences of the month. I’m going to be honest, this month started a little bit rough… but things have definitely been looking up from about midway through. I met the boyfriend’s parents for the first time on his birthday, which was a wonderful day and I performed in two separate productions which I’m really proud of. In all it’s been a month to remember.

MARCH TIME & THINGS ARE LOOKING UP.

BAKING!

This has been one of my absolute favourite things to do this month. I’ve made a batch of cupcakes for my friend Emily’s Birthday, a cat cake for my boyfriend and a coffee cake for my mummy for mothers day. It’s just something that I’ve really gotten into recently and it’s a nice way to use my spare time instead of just watching youtube or various television programmes!

FIZZY WATER!

I haven’t been able to get enough of this stuff this month. Usually I drink a lot of Evian and I’ll occasionally have some fresh orange juice in the morning, but I’d been getting a bit bored so when I popped into ASDA’s I bought myself some of these flavoured fizzy waters. (They’re a bargain at 4 for £1.50). And they’re so yummy! My favourite is the peach flavour but to be quite honest I really enjoyed them all. A welcome treat!

PLAYS!

I’ve been in two plays this month and I’m super proud of them both. In fact we still have three more performances of Richard III to do on April 2nd, 3rd and 4th at Leicester Cathedral and I’m still very excited about it all! I’m playing the Duchess of York, Richard’s Mother and it’s a really brilliant production that we’re all so proud of. It’s a sad time, but I’m really glad that it’ll be my last production of the term.

FINDING HAPPINESS!

This is going to sound really stupid, but for me March has been about finding myself all over again. After a rubbish February it took me some time to feel good about how things were progressing in my life and I became considerably withdrawn and out of sorts. I hope I’ve moved passed that now and I really feel as though I have. In truth it’s all thanks to Ashley. He told me to make a list of all the things I was grateful for and at first I shrugged it off like it was a stupid idea but when I reached a place when I thought things couldn’t get any worse I did it and I remember how amazing my life really is. I’d like to hold on to that feeling for as long as I possibly can and I’m really pleased with how the latter half of this month has helped me do that.

Looking forward to April now.
