Post of The Month

"Hey Abi,

Please don't be sorry. Have you ever heard of the phrase "You can't pour from an empty cup"? I feel like this applies here. You need to look after yourself before you can start caring for other people. I know you know all about self care so I won't go on, but try and practise it a little, the way you encourage others to. It's great that you have other skills too, I know music is one of your passions in life and hopefully by studying it that can help you get to where you want to be. Take all the time you need, you don't have to support people in SC all of the time - chat is there to support you too when you are going through difficult times.

Take care of yourself

  • Chat break week (8th-15th of January)



    Hey all

    It's that time again! Our next chat break week is fast approaching. If you've joined us recently, you're probably wondering what the hell we're talking about.

    What is a 'chat break week'?

    Some of you will already know this, but for those of you who don't: roughly three times a year, we have a week where we take a break from running group chat sessions.

    We use these periods as a chance to gather your feedback, review it as a team, and see if there are any changes we can make to the way group chat is currently run. We also use them as a chance to get more specific feedback on any projects we're working on - a good example of this is when we asked you guys what you thought of the chat guidelines and our new Tuesday GC during our last break in September. You can find the results for those here and here.

    When do they happen?

    Typically, these happen once in January, April, and August.

    The next chat break will be the week of the 8th of January (returning the following Monday).

    What will we be doing for this one?

    We haven't decided yet, but once we're a bit closer to the time we'll let everyone know in this thread. Stay tuned!

    Cheers everyone,
    Mike & the team

    I feel a chat break is good because you staff need a break to refresh, and we who have been helped and supported can spend time going to work on the advice you guys gave. Also, holiday times are often during those months mentioned.

      This might actually mean I get some studying done for my Prelims the week after... but at the same time no chat

      But anyway thanks for letting us all know 😊😊

            You could do because airports have a dedicated Wifi. The one you will be flying from does and is very good.
