I love the Christmas holidays, and everything being incredibly festive - I am especially loving the recent Christmas themed posts on the platform!
I am quite local to Leicester where De Montfort is based so I will be going home for the holidays.
I’ll be spending my time off having some festive fun but also working hard – a happy medium. I have made plans to see my friends and family whilst they and myself are home – prioritising my mental health and having a break also.
Whilst I am home, I will also be working at my part time job working at an amazing company who work with children and young adults with disabilities / learning disabilities – this is an incredible, rewarding and flexible job for students where I can also earn money and gain valuable experiences.
University wise I will be working on my essay for Health and well-being in Society as it is due early January. As of this I have already started researching about the topic for my essay and started my further reading as I don’t want to leave this 'till the Christmas break. This would be my advise to everyone try and be organised and have time management skills especially if you have assignments due after the holiday break - no one wants to be overwhelmed and have rushed assignments etc.
Hope those who celebrate have a lovely Christmas and try and find some time in the holidays to relax and have a break
