The Revision Blues


Please excuse my very cheesy title - I always think they are very difficult to come up with and this one seemed to be rather apt!

I haven't blogged for what seems like ages, which is largely due to the stress of first year university exams - new subjects, not knowing what to expect and of course, a little bit harder than A-Levels! So over the Easter holidays my head was stuck in a law text book. I honestly take my hat off to anyone who is doing Law as their main degree (fortunately for me, it is just one module) - there is so much to remember!

Anyway, I have been meaning to show you all this dress for a while now, which I acquired at a carboot for next-to-nothing. It is a lovely bright royal blue, with puffy sleeves, and a little collar that I attached a navy ribbon to. Unfortunately none of the full length shots turned out very well - I blame having to stand on a bed! But you'll have to imagine the rest - it finishes mid thigh, and has a lovely matching belt to cinch the waist. Here is the bad news - I was very foolish and actually sold this on eBay before I tried it on :( - it is already in the post to a very lucky person!


Here is a little snapshot of my life at the moment - tort law revision and a diary full of horrible exams :(. I'm sure it will be worth it in the end though! Just in case I'm absent from the blogosphere for a while - this is what I'll be doing!

One of my flatmates remarked on how colourful my notes were. Does anyone else like to get out the felt tips when revising, or is it just me?

I did Law at A Level and that was hard enough for me! I love your notes! If we had text books like that I'd have sailed through all my exams :)

Luckily I didn't have any exams in my first year of Uni, just lots of coursework but good luck with your exams, I'm sure in the end you'll do well!

Oh I remember Tort revision oh so well! I used to write everything in lots of different colours. Good luck!

Oh dear, I remember pleural plaques and mesothelioma all too well. If it's any consolation, I'm currently revising for my Masters in Law and I have an exam at 9am on Saturday!! It's a cruel, cruel world...

Good luck with your revision! Just remember: duty of care, breach of duty, causation, harm, remoteness!
