Choosing the ‘right’ graduate program

Taking the training wheels off.

Assalamualaikum, This is a surprise. I don’t usually update the blog more than once a week, but now, I’m writing my third post for this week itself. Huh, I’m surprising even myself. Is this what high-level procrastination does? I have a 2-page draft of my 6,000 words assignment due on…

Making your job application stand out

Assalamualaikum, I’ve been spending some time on LinkedIn recently, and I keep seeing posts like this: I’ve sent out like hundreds of CVs to different job vacancies, but I haven’t been invited to any interviews at all.

being so harsh on yourself

“Why are you being so harsh on yourself?”

Assalamualaikum, Last week, I made an appointment to see the University’s Wellbeing services. It’s nothing major, no worries.

What to look for in a job?

Assalamualaikum, This blog is inspired, in part, from a recent career talk / workshop that I went to. But it is not entirely from that workshop though, because I’ve been seeing a lot of similar cases around me with friends and people I meet, so I thought perhaps I could write…

Getting rid of those “Oh sh*t, I can’t do this” thoughts.

Assalamualaikum, Apologies for not updating the blog last week. I’ve been meaning to write, but after my trip down to Nottingham (me being a good sister and going to check up on my younger brother because our mum was worried), I fell sick with the cold and/or slight fever, so…

Working Part Time While Studying – Is It A Good Idea?

Assalamualaikum, This weekend was my lazy weekend – I slept in and was on the phone (audio/video call) with Aiman for most of the weekend. I was talking to him about the part-time job interview I had last week (which I wrote in my last post, Let’s Go, #HudFreshers), which…

Assalamualaikum, Hello again people. So I’m finally here in Huddersfield, have been here for almost three weeks, actually, but I never actually got around to actually updating this blog [apologies, again and again and again for it]. This week is my first official week of classes and I can legit…

Heading to Huddersfield, UK.

Assalamualaikum, I’ve been hinting about my new phase for quite some time, so I guess now’s a pretty good time to officially write about it on the blog, even though some of you would’ve already know about it from my other social medias (yeah, my blog is the last to…
