University: Life update November 2018

Hi guys,

It’s been a hot minute since I last posted so I thought I’d give you a bit of an update on what’s been going on in my life in the last 3 or so months.

As many of you will know I moved to university in mid September to start a new journey studying Criminology. I’ve been super busy getting settled in, going out, and getting on with work for my course. However, I have a few days free, and thought I’d finally get on here to update you all.

I am loving my experience so far. It is my second attempt at university – you can read more about why here – and I’m feeling so much more positive about it. I’ve submitted all of my work, and am now in the process of preparing for my January exams. I’ve also settled into my flat really well, and despite the odd wobble, am enjoying every second.

I’m living in halls with 5 others. I have my own bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and I love it here. I’ve decorated it as much as I’m able to, and at the moment, I really don’t want first year to end.

If you follow me on my personal accounts you will probably have seen that me and my boyfriend of 2 years broke up after the first week or so of moving here. Despite it being a difficult period, I’m coming out at the other side and feel so much more positive. I’ve been focusing on myself, getting back in the gym and surrounding myself with the best people; and it feels great.

As for gigs, I’m heading to Liverpool to see the Courteeners this Friday, and next month I’m off to see The Snuts in Manchester. I’m trying to get more ready for 2019, as I want to start including more music related content on here; playlists, gig and album reviews, and first impressions.

I fully cannot believe how quick 2018 has gone. It’s literally December in 3 days. I have just over 3 weeks until I finally get to go home for Christmas break. My mum and stepdad are currently in the process of moving into our new house so I’m looking forward to spending Christmas there.

This was quite a short but sweet post, but I won’t leave it this long before I post again (I promise)!

I would love to hear what you’ve been up to for the last few months, and what your plans are for the festive season in the comments below.

Lots of love,

My Mental Health Story

For as long as I could remember, I had felt anxious before I walked into a room or before hitting send on a simple message, would spend days at a time cooped up in bed, and had inexplicable pains throughout my body which only made the thing I call ‘the storm’ in my head worse.

This afternoon I went out and did my favourite type of shopping, stationery shopping! I went to B&M and The Range to pick up some bits ready for when I start university in a few weeks time. I ended up going a bit overboard but there was so much nice stuff, I just couldn’t resist! I thought I’d do a haul so I can show you what I got.

My August Reads

Hi guys! I hope you’re all having a lovely bank holiday Monday, or a lovely day if you’re reading this afterwards!

At the end of last month I joined a Facebook group called ‘Wilde Readers’ set up by Youtuber and author Louise Pentland for people to discuss their favourite books. Through joining this group my love of reading was reborn, and I’ve read 3 books throughout August and have nearly finished a fourth!
