How to enjoy summer without panicking about results day
You’re probably worrying about results day, and that’s perfectly normal. But here are some ways to take your mind off it, and to de-stress. Read more…

So we’re finally at the end of the year and into the summer break: who knew it’d fly by so quickly? I thought I’d do my last post for year 1 about the amazing end to the final semester I had!
There were two personal favourite endings: one being the Summer Send-Off organised by the SU, mainly because they had free popcorn and candy floss and a simulated bull thing (the name has completely left my head!), which are three of my many favourites. You’d have to be crazy not to like candy floss, right?
Secondly the faculty had organised for me and my other fellow interns at the Business School to go on an amazing team-building trip in London to climb the O2! Let me tell you about how the day went.
After we caught up on all the gossip and said hi to each other, we walked towards the 02 arena, where we were dwarfed and slightly intimidated – especially considering in around 30 minutes or so, we would be climbing the iconic millennium figure! After a short wait and sorting all the legal bits, we were strapped up and ready to go. Me, being the clever lad I am, slightly struggled with my little strap and kept getting stuck at the thicker bits of wire, while everyone else powered on up with ease!
Before you know it, we were at the peak of the dome where we at the back were presented by a load of interns taking selfies. I, of course, joined in and took some snaps of the amazing view of London.
Following the climb and lunch, we proceeded to the Underground and on to our next destination, where we were greeted by a lovely chap (Brian, a London Guide) who gave us a walking tour around the financial district. It was interesting to learn fascinating facts about so many buildings and organisations which I never knew even existed in the City!
