It’s only a few days until I’m back at uni, and to be honest I’m nervous. Not for the course or the work load, I definitely learnt my lesson last year in how to juggle everything on my plate. But more for that the first year went by so quickly. It doesn’t feel like I should be a second year with only this year to go before completing my HND.
Last week my best friend and I went to spend the day in Bath. I have been to Bath a handful of times, for me it’s under an hour away on the train, but I haven’t really gone to Bath for any other reason than to go shopping or to their Christmas Market. So when my best friend and I both had a day off we decided to spend the day in Bath and explore more of the city!
This was our last day in this amazing city! I know I’ve pretty much said the same things about Edinburgh in Day One, Day Two and Day Three. But honestly it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I haven’t travelled extensively nor been abroad much. But this is definitely a good start!
As I write this post I am in the middle of my summer holidays, something I thought I had left behind a few years ago. I never thought going to university was for me, for starters a) I only have NVQ qualifications not A Levels so I didn’t think a university would take me on and b) I never knew what I wanted to take, I always thought an English degree but was never 100% as to which one.
After spending two days in Edinburgh, Day One and Day Two, Monday was our last full day in Edinburgh. We had booked The Real Mary Kings Close Tour. This had been recommended to me from my hairdresser who went to Edinburgh I think last winter. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from the tour, I had looked at it online and thought it looked pretty cool to do.
It’s coming up to my parents 25th wedding anniversary and it’s got me thinking about them. They are my favourite people in the entire world and I love spending time with them. So in sort of honour of their wedding anniversary I thought I would write up 6 ways I aspire to be like my parents.
Following on from my Day One in Edinburgh, Sunday was set to be a beautiful day. The night before we decided to watch the sunrise at Calton Hill. For us this was under 15 minutes away from out hotel. Plus Sunday was set to be the better day for seeing the sunrise. So with an alarm set for 4am we got up and got ready to see the sunrise.
Do you ever get the feeling where you feel like the person you were even 12 months ago wasn’t you? The person you were 12 months ago seems like a distant far off version of yourself, a skin that has been shed long ago.
This year has gone by so quickly it’s unreal. It really doesn’t feel like May. The past 5 months have been crazy, I seem to have been drifting from one assessment to the next without really stopping to breathe. So I thought I would do a little roundup as to where I have been, what I have been up to and where I’d like t be heading.
As a winter baby usually I get pretty cold weather around my birthday, and on a few occasions even snow! This year I decided to go to venture out of the usual places I have been to in recent years and go to Cardiff. I went there last summer with my Mum after not going there for years. So decided to go back for my birthday, so my Mum, Dad and I hopped onto the train and off into the sunshine (literally).
