𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝𝐛𝐲𝐞 𝐆𝐃𝐋! 🙋🏻 ♀️ . I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. It feels surreal to say goodbye to the GDL and my final exam with the click of the ‘Submit’ button. Equity & Trusts exam, done. GDL, completed. ✅ . I still remember my first day of university where I turned up to campus nervous and slightly late (no surprises there) and left with my rucksack and hands full of books. I remember thinking, gosh this is A LOT of reading to do. And now I’ve read them all. (swipe left 👈 for the evidence ft the cat!) . I’ve also finished the GDL (provided my exam results are ok! 🤞), made friends with lovely coursemates, worked a part-time job, completed a vacation scheme, received a training contract offer from one of the first firms I ever met and truly liked, and maintained some semblance of a social life. 😅 . 2019 Hannah wasn’t even sure if any of the above was possible! . This time last year, I was umm-ing and ahh-ing about whether it was the right decision to move back to the UK and start studying again. The GDL sounded really scary and, I was told, “a lot of work”, plus I didn’t have a training contract or any vacation schemes lined up. It would mean going back to square one and leaving behind my ‘expat life’ in Hong Kong (truthfully, a lot less glamorous than it sounds!). 🇭🇰✈️🇬🇧 . I wouldn’t change it. I’ve definitely had many ups and downs on this journey, but I’m so glad I followed my gut and did the thing that scared me most. Yep, moving back in with my parents and committing to law - becoming a solicitor - was honestly terrifying to me, but you’ve got to do what scares you the most, right?! 👊 . If you are currently in the same boat as I was last year, whether you’ve just graduated or thinking about returning to studying, you’re not alone, I’ve been there too. Go with your gut! & Feel free to reach out as I’m always happy to chat or be a (virtual) sounding board. 💬 . #blawggingit #studylaw #lawstudent #gdlstudent #ulaw #endofexams
