I apologise profusely for the lack of organisation of late, it's been a hectic couple of weeks with the end of my second year at university. I have one minor essay and an exam left next month, but apart from that, I'm done with my second year, and that thought is quite simply petrifying. I'm in the process of ordering my books for my dissertation research and well, it's going too fast. I'm organising what I want to do when I leave next year, all I have to do is decide whether I want to do my doctorate or PGCE, then magically pull a few thousand pounds out from where the sun doesn't shine. Now the future doesn't scare me as such, but it's my obsessive organisation that's scaring me...
Is it too soon to be deciding what to do with my life?
Am I deciding too early so I might change my mind any time soon?
Anyone else who is going through the same emotional rollercoaster, whether you're leaving school, college, university, a job, home, anything - I'd love to hear from you, via Twitter or the comments or any medium! It makes the experience a whole lot smoother when you speak to someone else about it, especially if they're going through it too, through reassuring them that they'll be okay, you in turn reassure yourself in a very backward way.
So what's happened at uni this semester?
Obviously, I've written a lot of essays. 6 to be precise. Doesn't sound much when you put it that way, though. But my longest one was about 5,500 words long.
I discovered Reese's peanut butter cups are sold in my uni shop. Bad times for my bank account.
I started taking OOTD photos in the full length mirror in the toilets. Trust me girls, if you don't have a full length mirror at home, you'll take what you can get.
I started blogging properly for my university history blog, which I'm sure you've seen me blabbing about every once in a while.
I started wearing lipstick to lectures. Big time. I guess I grew confidence somehow!
I got a first on an essay! My first first, to be precise. But that wasn't the first time I've said I got my first first. You're not the first to know, I'm afraid. Twitter was my first port of call. Okay, I'll stop.
So I'm back for the summer, and the first thing I'll be doing is celebrating my blogiversary on Monday! Then I've got plenty of reviews lined up, so never fear, I'll be back with a vengeance before long :D
