Lent Term blues and the fear of the future

When I first got to LSE, it felt like being here was exactly what I was meant to do. I felt like all of my decisions were right and this moment was the time of my life. I even wrote about it here.

I did not go home for Christmas

“I’ll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams” goes the song. Christmas has always been one of the most important dates of the year for me but this time I could not be home, and this was not a very easy decision.

Climbing to your dream job: 3 uniquely LSE traps to avoid during recruitment
