My TBR Pile #3

It’s been two months since I shared a reading list, so is just the right time for my TBR Pile #3, here are the second one and the first one. This time I was able to take the picture of the books in my new bookcase. I’m so pleased with how the bookcases look like. […]

How I prepare for exams

How I prepare for exams

I mentioned that I am going to share how I prepare for exams. Next week I have two exams: British History 1485-1603 and European History 1815-1914. We are going to take the exams online and it will be an open book exam. So, in theory it would be easier, but, in practice, is not. I […]

Trinity term

Trinity Term

Tomorrow I have the last seminar and the Trinity Term is over. If you want to see what I did in the other terms, check my posts on Michaelmas Term and Hilary Term. All the term we were in lockdown, so things had to change, fast, and we had to adapt. Considering this, it was […]

I enjoyed writing the first post with books I’m looking forward to read, so here is My TBR Pile #2. From the first list, which contained 18 books I read most of them, see the update at the end of this post. I published that post on 5th March, so this is a round-up of […]

Hilary Term

Hilary Term

Hilary Term is now over. If you are curious how the first term was, have a look at Michaelmas Term. This term I had to do two essays, I had tutorials, and I started a new period, European history in the 19th century. It was different because we changed the period and the professor too. […]

Me, Going to Oxford University

Going to Oxford University

I’m sure you can imagine how excited I am to write this post, to share that I’m going to Oxford University next month! I will read history! Isn’t that amazing?! I spent two years searching for the best options for me; that involved going on open days to a few universities, including to three open […]

Band 8 IELTS Academic

Band 8 IELTS Academic

I pondered a couple of days on the title of this post. I was pondering between How to Get Band 8 IELTS Academic or How I got Band 8 at IELTS Academic (sounded a bit like I was bragging). In the end, I’ve decided on the shorter version of Band 8 IELTS Academic because I […]

9 Books I loved last year

Choosing only a few books to read was very difficult. I should mention that 9 Books I loved last year started out as 5 Books I loved last year. On top of that, luckily, I blogged last year about 3 Books You Should Read (Enlightenment now by Steven Pinker, The colour of time by Dan […]
