My new term will start tomorrow and I am very excited to start this new section of my Cambridge experience but it is also crazy how fast my first term flew by. Our terms are very short (eight weeks), but they are also very intense and we work very hard during these weeks. I cannot believe how close I have gotten to the people in my course over such a short period of time but I am super grateful for these friendships!
As I told you guys in my previous post, my college hosted mock exams before the beginning of term (which was honestly quite scary...), so I started my term with an exam. Although the prospect of the exam impacted my holiday, I think the exam was very useful for us because it gave us all a sense of what our real exams would be like.
The past days have also been filled with suspense and uncertainty over Brexit and my friends and I have been following the news on it over the past few days. As an EU student in the UK, what worries me the most is the uncertainty that comes with the absence of a clear statement of what the future arrangement will be. I still do not know whether I will need a visa soon or whether I will be able to easily remain in the UK. It is honestly quite scary to see such a lack of clarity at this point in time and many of my fellow EU students have expressed the same feeling. I am sure that this is a topic that will accompany me through my second term and I really hope that we will soon have more certainty on the matter!
I am also super excited to share a little fashion update with you guys: I am now officially a brand ambassador for Sincere Sally! I was beyond excited when the brand reached out to me since I have bought some of their products before being one of their ambassadors and so I am super grateful to be able to represent them. You can get 25% off your purchase at Sincere Sally with the code ELENAHAND25 and I hope you guys will like their products! My first purchase as an ambassador was this super cute bag:
I am really looking forward to my next term here at Cambridge and I hope that I will get to meet many more people, make new friends, and learn a lot more about law! If you would like to know how I felt about my first term, you can find out here:
I would also like to thank all of you for your support, especially during my first term! It has been amazing to read your supportive messages and hear from so many of you guys! If you would like to message me, you can do so here.
Lots of love,
