Ok, so this actually happened a year ago but I wrote this for my old blog but I wanted the memory of this here too, so just pretend it's one year ago because then I do not have to retype this blog post...
Graduation was one of the happiest days of my life.
Positive thinking is so important when trying to do anything that you are passionate about. Staying positive is a key component in a new job, hobbies and anything else that you want to improve your skills in.
I didn’t think I would ever write a blog post on fitness. I have never had the motivation to really even think that it was worth the effort. And whilst I was working at a school I was too tired to even get on a bike never mind 4 times a week.
I love Brighton, there is no city quite like Brighton anywhere. The diversity of just one place is insane and I love that everyone is accepting of everyone.
Making a room feel homely is my favourite thing to do! It makes everything feel and look cosy and invites you into a room. Having an organised and homelike feel to a room enhances your creativity! It is a great space for having time by yourself and even having a movie night with friends. I love buying homeware things, it gives me so much satisfaction! I can't wait to have my own house when I can design all the rooms rather than just having my bedroom!
Are you moving to halls? Then this is a list for you! It feels like yesterday that I was starting my university life and getting ready to move into halls. It was so exciting a nerve racking at the same time.
I thought I would do a favourites/highlights post because I love reading these posts and they will be a great reminder for me to look back on my month. I must just love being nosey at what people have been up to for the month.
I have finally finished university! It has been the hardest but best three years of my life. I have had my highs and lows especially with finding your friendship groups. It has been the best and hardest experience so far.
We went on a lovely boat tour in a punt and was taken down the river to see some of the beautiful wildlife and historical feature of Canterbury. Canterbury is a lovely city with a cathedral, castle, and an Abbey. It has a lot of history and is one of the most haunted cities in England.
Degree's entail hard work and motivation to complete, there are many times that pushed my stress levels to the max, but thankfully I never felt like I wanted to quit (like some people in my course). I did a 3-year course in 2 years; which did increase the intensity, but I am so thankful that I have been able to complete this course- it’s so satisfying knowing you have a degree, it still hasn’t quite sunk in yet, to be honest!
Photography has been a recent hobby which I have increasingly become more passionate about. At the moment I have been taking photographs with the iPhone 6 and have finally got a DSLR camera which has been my dream for as long as I can remember. I am definitely still learning but I love the freedom that this camera gives you as you can control the shutter speed, aperture and so much more. There is so much to learn but I am so excited to get started!
I read the Love Potion Diaries by Amy Alward when I was on holiday with my mum in Italy; it was such an easy book to read. The plot was moving at a steady pace throughout and the characters are easily likeable.
I saw a post like this on Fabulous Hannah YouTube Channel and I loved watching it so I thought I would write a blog post about my own baby names that I love but won't be using. Just to clarify, I am not pregnant but either was Hannah so she gave me the go ahead that I can do this even when I am not even expecting. Baby names are so hard to think off, and I feel that it is such an important thing to get right because this poor child is going to be stuck with it for the rest of its life.
One day I want to travel all around the world, and when I get this opportunity I will want to make a diary of all my experiences. In the meantime, I can tell you about all the places that I have been to already and any tips that I have found out along the way! There is always an iPhone in my hand so that I can try to capture the beautiful coastline throughout the world! Photography is a recent hobby of mine and I want to make use of it in an interesting way! This will enable me to share all these experiences with everyone else!
To become more organised I treated myself to a weekly planner to plan out blog posts and things that need to be done to start my next chapter towards my new career! I can be an organised person and then some days I will be the least productive person I know; even when there is a to-do list sitting right next to me.
There are so many places that I want to visit, so much so that I probably wouldn’t be able to fit them all into one blog post. So to start with I have put together some American Attractions that I would love to see one day and my reasons why I want to go to America. Dreaming keeps everyone motivated to achieve what they want in life; right now, my focus is to get a career. I am dreaming of travelling at some point during my life, but I need to focus on getting myself settled into a job that I love which will support the funding needed to visit these different places.
I thought to get to know me better I would do a post about what I cannot do. I want to show you that no one has a perfect life and although these fails are light hearted, it shows that everyone has something embarrassing happen in their life. I think it will be fun to look back at some of my FAILS; no one is good at everything right?! Well, at least that is what I tell myself.
University can be stressful, it can make you want to give up and never pick up a journal again. The difference between university and school is that you can choose to be at university so there is nothing stopping you from walking out of the doors when everything gets too tough!
