It's mid march. Is it normal to be this cold and windy in Southern England this time of the year?
I am not really happy with the weather but there is not much I can do. I am just glad that my big investment I made when I was back in Vancouver last December (I bought a nice Canada Goose Parka) has had a really good use out of it. Although unfortunately, I got a white one - as they did not have any black one in stock, it is getting dirty at the edges. But I guess the upside is, my friends here can spot me from milees away. And I remain quite visible when I am cycling. So I may look a bit messy but safety is more important, right?
I wasn't feeling very well over the weekend. I think I am just run down. But after drinking mugs and mugs of honey lemon tea I am feeling much better - thanks to D who took care of me.
So this is the end of the term again. This means that I get my term report cards from all my supervisors. As I am taking 5 papers, I will get 5 different sets. So far only one out of 5 was released for my review (Land Law), he said I perform very well in supervisions but my essays could use improved structures. Yes, this has been the part that I have most difficulties somehow. My supervisors seem to think I know the law well but I just don't write as well as I should. Hmm I am more comfortable with the numbers and bullet points, although this cannot be my excuse.
One thing for sure is that writing law essays is actually a skill that I think you can acquire. I am sure some people have better tools to acquire such skill more easily. Unfortunately I am not one of them. But I understand... life is fair. Calculus 101 was so easy for me when it wasn't to others.
I have four more report cards to come in - one of them from my Director of Studies (DoS). And also I will have a meeting with him this Thursday to talk about how my term went.
I am going to say, it was better than last term for sure. I am finally getting the hang of how to study law more efficiently although I think there still is room for improvement.
