Life | Life Update

Hi blog friends!! 

I haven't done a chatty/life update post in a while and I though it was about time, plus I love doing posts like this, for some reason it feels like I'm having a big catch up over coffee with all of you haha!

Recently my life has been thrown back into London and I am so happy and excited for the next couple of months and what is in store! 
Since moving back to London I haven't done a great deal other than eat, blog, edit, repeat but today my uni course is starting unofficially with a challenge week and I am so excited about it (although I keep complaining but I really am excited haha) mainly to see all my friends again! 
On the other hand it does mean that the start of real lectures is fast approaching and the thought of all the work I am going to have to do this year kind of makes me want to cry, but I feel like I am ready for the challenge and I am going to try SO hard this year as it is my last and I am dying to leave uni with a 2.1!
I feel like in 2nd year I had a lot going on and my work really suffered as a result and it makes me upset to think I could have done so much better but you can't dwell on the past, you just have to look forward and put the effort in, nothing will stop me this year I'm going to be an essay writing machine! 

Leaving my home in Devon was hard for me though, I had been home for so long I got into a routine of doing nothing and buying Tsum Tsum's haha but like fo'real I was so lazy this summer and I'm angry at myself for that but oh well ey it gave me time to blog...every cloud! 
Like I was saying however, leaving was hard for many reasons the biggest obviously being that my boyfriend lives in Devon and now I won't see him till my birthday trip to Disneyland Paris. We talk every day but goodbyes are always hard and this was no exception! I also didn't want to leave my dad and brother, but this is all part of growing up I guess. 
Since being in London I have felt a bit wobbly to be honest, I'm just feeling all the emotions at the moment and it's making me a bit well, confused. I am beyond excited for this year and being back in London as I LOVE being here but I miss everyone at home and I'm also scared about what I'm going to do after uni but I'm happy that I'm here and I'm doing what I want.

I think my anxiety plays a part in all this confusion. 
I get so anxious whenever a new term at uni starts, mainly because I always seem to convince myself I will fail and that uni isn't for me and that I hate it. 
Like I said before my second year wasn't the best for me and I used to wake up everyday dreading going into uni and doing something I didn't want to do, all I wanted to do was hide in my room all day and cry and I really don't want this mindset to carry on into this year as I'm feeling really good about 3rd year. So I am going to make a conscience effort to stamp out that little voice in my head and tell it that I WILL do well and that I WILL get the grades I want instead of letting it take over everything like it did in 2nd year! Positivity is key (god this damn post is like cliche central). 
However I did find myself pulling out my eyelashes the other day and had to stop myself which I haven't done in a long time so I know I'm definitely stressed/anxious about something but I will not let my anxiety and trichotillomania get the best of me and I am now on high alert for pulling!

But overall I'm feeling confident and happy right now, I have this incredible blog, amazing friends, my wonderful and supportive family and an amazing boyfriend and I am very grateful for every single one of them even if I don't tell them enough! 
Plus I have so many things to look forward too in the up coming weeks, firstly freshers, then my early birthday celebrations with my housemates, Disneyland for my actual birthday with Bob and Fall Out Boy with Bob.
Overall I'm trying to be positive in my outlook right now and I think over time I will thank myself for that! Oh and before I leave you just thought I'd let you know that I'm super excited for the iPhone 6s to come out, hot dang I need that rose gold phone in my life haha!

What a random way to end that little life update haha I hope you enjoyed reading. I will leave you with one question, just a simple...

How are you guys doing?!

Lots of love

  2. Thank you! Haha isn't it so beautiful!! xxx

  3. I love little life updates like this, they really give you an insight into a person's thoughts and feelings. I wish you all the best with Uni, and you can get that 2:1, I know you can! I used to have the exact same feelings towards college because of my anxiety, not wanting to go in and not doing work to my highest standard because I just didn't feel motivated. I pushed through though, and I hope this year is a better year for you! xx
