University Blog: Post 2

The last few days have been intense to say the least. I haven’t even been at Uni for a week and I am already shattered. Have you just started Uni? How’s it going for you? I moved in on Saturday and so far I have been out late every night (sleeping for no more thanContinue reading “University Blog: Post 2”

Starting University: Post 1

Hi! As I am moving into the university of my dreams a week today, I thought it would be a good time to start documenting everything, from freshers week to the meals I make to the course itself. I want to keep you guys all up to date with everything I’m doing, with weekly blogContinue reading “Starting University: Post 1”

Why do we waste time thinking about our dreams?☁️🌟

So many of us get stuck in this stage of planning and thinking about our dreams rather than getting out there and smashing them. Why do we, humankind, come up with endless excuses for not following our dreams and simply thinking and not doing? One of the main reasons: we are afraid of change. ChangeContinue reading “Why do we waste time thinking about our dreams?☁️🌟”

Autumn has arrived🍂🍁

It’s the first of September, the first of the “-ber months” or “brr months” as my mum likes to say. Officially, Autumn begins 21st September, but to me September means Autumn. September is the epitome of new beginnings and fresh starts. Back to school, end of summer. It’s all endings and beginnings for this month.Continue reading “Autumn has arrived🍂🍁”

No more lockdown (hopefully)!

What are your plans for the next few months? As we move out of lockdown (how many times have I said this on my blog over the last two years??) and as everything starts to open up again (and hopefully for good), what do you plan to do? Are you returning full-time to work, study?Continue reading “No more lockdown (hopefully)!”

Let’s start at the beginning: I applied to Oxford last October but was unfortunately rejected. Despite this,Continue reading “The Next Steps”

What is the one word that motivates you in life?

As we start to move out of lockdown, I’ve been wanting to write a more positive blog post. So, this post is centred around one thing: what is the one word that drives you forward in life? Which word, if there is one that exists, pushes you and motivates you to the absolute extreme? IsContinue reading “What is the one word that motivates you in life?”

Snow and Hope

I woke up this morning to heaps of fresh snow. Opening my eyes, out of the window, the trees were bare, sheathed with thick snow and the woods opposite my house offered excitement and a flickering feeling of hope. I made myself a coffee, lit a candle, and watched a feel-good film whilst looking outContinue reading “Snow and Hope”

What is happiness to you?

If I asked you the question ‘what makes you happy?’ a lot of the responses would involve materialistic things, such as ‘food’, ‘money’ or even ‘a glass or two of wine’. Those things make me happy too. However, don’t these things just offer momentary happiness? We get the item we so desperately think we needContinue reading “What is happiness to you?”

One last thing

I’m sure we can all agree that 2020 has not been the best and the ending to this year has not been welcoming either, with the new tiers in the UK and the realisation that all this won’t be going away when the clocks chime 00:00 tonight. Sorry for the downer. However, as I saidContinue reading “One last thing”
