Semester 1 results are out! (+study skills!)

Hope you guys are doing great! The university have just released the semester 1 results and I am quite happy with it!:) Apart from all the great activities you do at university such as socialising with friends or getting skills from work experiences- I still think that study hard is my main responsibly as a student.

Let me talk about things I find special for studying at university and study tips that I find useful*. (*Different people works differently but I find these ways work best for me, please feel free to trail and error until you achieve your goals!)

TEAM SURREY! #surreynotsorry

As a sociology student and seemingly not a sporty person, I am very glad that I can talk about sports societies after studying here for 4 years!

The University of Surrey offers over 150 sports clubs and societies for students to join and you can certainly find a sport that matches your interests:



(and more!)

Every year there will be an Active Freshers’ Fayre for new students (continuing students are of course welcomed!) to know more about different sports clubs and societies before the start of Semester 1. In the Fayre, you can try out as many activities you want for free to get an idea of what the sport is like. As you may know that I spent most of my time at Surrey participating in extra curriculum activities which are not very active, such as starting up the HKPASS society, I decided to join Taekwondo this year!

How I Got Here

How I got into university seems like a such a self-explanatory question, you apply, you receive the required grades and you wait for the good news.  But for me, it was actually quite different from that.

Basically, I was not doing well in secondary school and I kind of had the idea that maybe higher education was not for me.  I obviously changed my mind about it and decided it is incredibly important but that led to another question, with my grades, is it even possible to get into a decent university?  Well, the answer is YES!

Hello everyone! How are you?

Hope you all have had a lovely weekend. The weather is finally getting warmer and the sky is sunnier in Guildford so I don’t have to dress like I am in the Arctic anymore. I hope it stays like this, at least for a little while. When the weather is warm and sunny, my friends and I like to sit by the lake and enjoy the sun rays. You know, to get the vitamin D and that “sun-kissed” skin tone although it never works on me haha. What do you like to do when the sun is out?

Five Things I love about University

Hello everyone! How was your first week of the second semester? Do you feel rejuvenated? Or are you surviving on caffeine? I personally wanted a longer break but at the same time, it feels really good to be back 🙂

Today I want to talk about higher education and the things I love about going to university, obviously, I will include the things I love about Surrey University as well. I was talking to my friend the other day who is currently working full-time, she said she feels so much happier and that studying was never her ‘thing’ because she prefers creative and artistic things. I feel like there is a misconception that going to university is only for people who wants to become lawyers, teachers, engineers or psychologist which is not true. Many universities offers Performing Arts or Music degrees and some of them does a really good program with great facilities. Not trying to be biased but off the top of my head, I would say the GSA is a great example!

Christmas, New Year’s Eve, CNY and More From Diana

Hi everyone! It’s me, Diana! I have missed you all! 

I hope you all have had a lovely Christmas and New Year! And that you are keeping up with all your new year’s resolutions! 😉

For me, I have decided that this year, I am going to be more punctual and try to manage my time more wisely! Oh, also I  have set myself a goal that I need to go to the gym at least 2 times per week. I know.. I know.. 2 times might not seem much but I am setting myself a realistic goal and trying to match my gym schedule with my timetable. I want it to become a habit first before forcing myself to go there everyday. Do you have any new year’s resolution? Have you set any goals for yourself to achieve this year?  Leave a comment and share with me so we can motivate each other!
