Hello everyone, I can’t believe we are half way through 2019 and in July! Where is this year going?! The last two months have been a blur, so much has happened and so many things have changed!Continue reading
The past two years have flown by and if I’m honest it’s a little scary. If you’ve been following my blog or Instagram you’ll know I have been at university studying a HND. I have been aiming for this moment for the last 24 months and now it’s here I have been feeling very overwhelmed and unprepared.Continue reading
Or as organised as I can! Balancing university, a part time job, blogging, Instagram, a social life and time for myself is probably the best balancing act I’ll do for a while! Over the last 18 months of university, other than learning about my course, it’s really taught me how to prioritise my time and use it more effectively. Especially having a 20+ hour job alongside, at times I can safely say I don’t recommend working so many hours!Continue reading
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.
Being an ‘older’ student, going back into education it took a lot for me to get back into the swing of, I’d been out of education for a few years. But the whole reason I took the course was to get a qualification in something other than my apprenticeship. I realised that my NVQ wasn’t something I wanted to do forever, and as I had thought I’d missed out on going to uni, getting onto this course I was so surprised. I go into more detail about my first year and how going to uni came about for me here.Continue reading
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.
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.Continue reading
I say this at the start of every month and I’ll say it again, where is 2017 going!? It feels like it has flown by but also taken it’s time because so much has happened. At the beginning of 2017 I wrote Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017 and every 3 months I have written an update as to how I have been doing this year, one in April and the last one in June.
