Life | Why I Took A Blogging Break & New Blogging Schedule

Hi blog friends!!

It has been a seriously long time since I've sat in front of my laptop and written a post, but here I am! I thought I would explain where I've been and what I've been doing, as SO much has gone on!

So, I did put up a few posts here and there from the start of this year, but not as much as I was hoping and the only thing I can blame this on was my dissertation and uni work. Third year was mental, I've never worked that hard in my life haha. Once my dissertation was handed in and I had finished my other uni work, then it was time to wait for results. During this time (June) I moved back home to Devon and whilst I was there, I decided to take a step back from blogging, as I wasn't in the right frame of mind, what with waiting for results and finally having time to sleep and chill out after the craziness of uni, I just lost all excitement for writing posts and the thought of having to take pictures and edit them, I just couldn't bring myself to do it! 

At this time as well, due to being so stressed and anxious about waiting for my results my Trichotillomania became worse, and I ended up pulling out most of my fringe (so now I have a tiny baby fringe which looks ridiculous). I tried really hard not to let it get as bad as it did, but unfortunately I simply couldn't help it, I was so worried and stressed, and I had convinced myself that I had failed my dissertation and hadn't got a 2:1 (which was what I was aiming for overall), so that was another reason that made me not want to do anything, because my confidence and self esteem was so low.
However come the middle of June and I received the best news, that I'd got a 2:1 for my dissertation and I was literally over the moon, I couldn't believe I'd done it, but that didn't take away the anxiety I felt about my overall grade and I continued to pull my hair out.
At the end of June, my Grandparents came down from Scotland and stayed with us for 2 weeks, which was amazing. My brother and sister also made it down for the first weekend of July, and my sister bought her puppy Lenny (OH MY GOD THE CUTENESS). Over this period I didn't even want to blog, just spend time with my family as I don't see them a lot, so this was such a special time.

In the second week of July I found out my overall uni grade, and I can't even tell you how happy I was to find out I was graduating with a 2:1 in Screen Media (I had a little happy cry in my bedroom)! I was so convinced that I hadn't done enough, I would say to my dad pretty much that I had let the family down because I hadn't done as well as Charlie and Chris (who both got 2:1's). So to find out I had was just such a shock and a relief!

Soon after results it was graduation time. I can't even express how amazing graduation was, I had the best time! I laughed so much and got to spend time with so many of my friends. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to St. Mary's.

After graduation I stayed in London for a week, packing up my bedroom (also took a cheeky trip to the ZSL as well haha), and I was intending to blog whilst I was up there that week, but what did I go and do you ask?! LEFT MY LAPTOP IN MY DADS CAR AND HE WAS DRIVING BACK DOWN TO DEVON. So that foiled my plans haha!

Now my life has turned upside again, my mum has offered me a job at the company she works for, and I start this Monday, yes THIS MONDAY AS IN TODAY! So I have just moved up to Shropshire/Hereford for 3 months. 
However I am adamant to stick to my new blogging schedule, which is...

3 times a week, and I am sticking to the three topics that I love and interest me: Beauty, Disney and Life. The days will be...


Every post will be up at 4pm English time! Hopefully I can stick to this new schedule!

So that has been my life over the past few months, but now I'm back and I'm ready to get back into blogging and love it again!

Lots of love
Katy xxx
