Life Update | Illness & Masters Degrees

Can someone please explain to me how it’s somehow the third month of the year already?! I feel like I’ve only just got to grips with the fact that it’s 2018, never mind march. Time needs to slow down please.
The days and months have all seemed to blur into one long stretch for me since the start of the year. I started off January with my second batch of deadlines for this academic year, followed by immediately getting ill with some sort of cold/flu. I had just over a week of complete freedom towards the end of January, with all of my deadlines completed and lectures for second semester having not yet started, so of course it was this week that my body decided to give up on me and make me too ill to do any of the things I had planned! From then on I had a chest infection, another cold, and finally tonsillitis, all over the course of one month. Needless to say February wasn’t a fun month for me!

The Quote Every Twenty-Something Needs To Hear

As I move nearer and nearer towards finishing my degree, I’m hearing the question “so what are you planning to do afterwards” by more and more people, far too often than I’d like to. Sometimes, it’s a genuine question and the person asking simply has an honest interest in my plans, but a lot of the time it’s asked in a different way. It’s asked in a way that expects something, as if my answer needs to live up to some sort of unknown requirement. I’m supposed to have a plan. I’m supposed to know exactly what I’m going to do afterwards, with a five year goal and all aspects of my life slotting into perfect place.

A Few Things I Want To Do In 2018

I think from now on I just need to accept the fact that throughout the rest of this academic year my blog posts are going to be completely all over the place! It always fills me with guilt every time a week passes by and I haven’t uploaded anything, but it kind of makes when I do upload something much more of an achievement!
Even though we’re already over three weeks into the new year, I feel like I can’t start 2018 without doing a post about some of the things I want to do this year. I’ve written myself a more personal in-depth list, but I thought I would choose 5 of those things to share with you guys today!

My Year At A Glance | 2017

It’s officially the last day of 2017!
I can’t quite believe that an entire year has passed by and by midnight tonight a brand new one will have begun. I’m actually having quite a relaxed evening in tonight with my family as opposed to a big night out. We’ll be drinking lots of champagne and playing lots of board games and I cannot wait!
I figured I would end my final post of the year with a chatty look back on 2017 (because right now I seem to be loving the casual, rambly posts) and talk through any of the significant things that have happened to me/see how well I did with my goals.

Small Ways You Can Make A Difference This Christmas

I can’t quite believe that tomorrow is christmas eve and there’s only one more week left of 2017! I know people say this every year but I honestly feel like I have just blinked and 2017 has gone. I’m so excited for the festivities over the next few days though and to end the year on a positive note! For the past few months my posts have been very all over the place (I blame university), but I couldn’t let christmas pass me by without getting at least one festive post up, so, today I thought I would share some small but wonderful ways that you can help to make a difference this christmas!

5 Life Lessons I Learnt At 22

If you follow me over on instagram *which btw I’m way more active on right now than this blog*, then you may have seen that last month it was my 23rd birthday! For the past 2 years I’ve acknowledged my birthday on this blog with a chatty post about my birthday celebrations but I though this year I would shake things up a bit and do a post about 5 life lessons I learnt in my year of being 22. I know a lot of people do things like '22 things I learnt at 22' but the older I get the more difficult that will become so I figured it was best to just stick to 5!
