My First Year

Hello Everybody,

If you didn't know already on the 23rd of May I completed my first year of University- that is assuming that I have actually done okay in all of my modules and don't have to retake any in the summer. So that means I have a lot of spare time on my hands, apart from the fact I will be working to make a bit of money to get me through second year. But I have also decided that this extra time is a good opportunity for me to work on my blog. I thought I would kick off my new load of posting however with a little review of what the first year of university was like for me, in the hope that it helps anyone who may be starting University as a fresher in the coming September- or just be interesting for anyone nosey out there that may be reading my blog.

What I Learnt from Semester One at University...

As a task for one of my modules last week I was asked to write a reflection on how my first semester has gone at University. Of course, this is all about the spiel of the academics of my first semester at University, but I feel as though there is a lot more to University than just the learning. Besides, coming to University is very different to anything you can prepare for. Suddenly, you are thrown into the deep end, away from any home comforts, living with complete strangers and learning how to live an entirely new lifestyle.

Today I thought it would be fun for me to reflect on what semester one of University has taught me. I have certainly realised a lot about myself, as well as learnt to deal with totally alien situations that no one really warns you of before you begin in September. I hope this post is not only relatable to those that are at University or have been to University but also helps those that are planning to go to University, as I know I wished I had been pre-warned about a lot of things in semester one.

New Year

Edit: I'm not usually one for clichés, but something about January has left me feeling motivated, and perhaps the whole "New Year, New Me!!" isn't so bad. This post was actually written a few weeks ago but I have been busy moving back into Uni and revising for exams so it has come at a bit of a delay. I hope you still enjoy x

2016 has been a weird one for many reasons. It's had both ups and downs, but it will definitely be a year that I will not forget. I know my blog became obsolete for the last few months when I was settling into University, and I have to admit that was little unexpected. I thought University would fill me with new blogging ideas and be a better environment to create; I wasn't wrong, I just forgot that settling into independent life, and a very different (not so much) routine would make organising my life to include blogging time a little bit tricky.
However, more recently I have come to the realisation that maybe it is time for regular posting to come back. It's taken me a while to realise the importance of a new year, and perhaps not a fresh start, but a good time to start better habits, and a good time for self-improvement. In this post, I thought I would outline what I want to achieve in 2017. Some may be cliché and some not so cliché, but to me, that doesn't matter if they are things that I feel are important to myself, my well-being and my health.
