College Experience Update

Hey everyone!
I'm very sorry that there hasn't been a blog post for a while now.  I have been very busy and I didn't have a lot of time to post.  However, now I have finished the first year of my course at college, I have time to write posts.  I am hoping I can post consistently throughout the summer! This post relates to my previous College Experience post where I spoke about my whole experience.  At the end of that blog post I noted that I would update my experience accordingly through the year.  So, as I have finished the first year of my course, I thought it was a perfect time to reflect on the year and let you know my experience of college and completing a course so far.   
At the start of the course it is so important to mix with the class so you can find friends and bond as a group.  I found this difficult at the start of the year as I had so little confidence, however, I pushed myself to speak to my classmates and it helped me so much! Since I started the course in …

2018/2019 Goals

Hey everyone! This is going to be a post on what I hope to achieve in 2018-2019, and what I am hoping to do throughout the year. I apologise for not being active on my blog in months, but so much has been happening, I really have struggled to find the time.  However, I really will try to make the time to write posts this year.  I originally was going to post this post at the start of 2018, but I never got the chance to finish writing it. So, lets get to the goals...

1.  Complete my course
Sounds a bit silly, but I really want to finish my course with the a good grade that reflects my hard work and motivation to the course.  I am aiming for high grades, so it will be disappointing if I do not achieve the grades I am hoping for...but I don't there is nothing I can do and all I can do is just try my best.

2. Become more confident 
This is a goal I am always setting myself, and in the last year my confidence has definitely grown.  I would like to be able to say in a year's time th…

Where Have I Been?!?!

Hey everyone!

I am so so so sorry for not having a post uploaded for the last couple of weeks, even months.  Lately I have been super busy. This will probably be a short post, but all this is, is to tell you guys what I've been up to and why I haven't uploaded anything. However if I stay organised, I will hopefully get back into regular uploads! So, I'll get into discussing where I've been...

Firstly, starting back at college...like I mentioned in a previous blog post, I started a new course, and I have been trying to stay organised with that, and I have have quite a lot of work to do since starting.  I do really enjoy my course though, which helps! If you have started new subjects, courses or new studies, how are you finding them?

I also recently got a job, which I absolutely love! And I've been quite busy with that too, which I do not mind because I'm enjoying it so much.

So, I am definitely working on managing my time better so that I have more free time to …

College Experience

Hey everyone!

I'm very sorry that there hasn't been a blog post for the passed two weeks, I have been busy with college and getting back into the routine. Better late than never I suppose?! But I will be trying to get a post up every week when I have time and get into a routine.

Everyone has been back to school/college for three weeks now (well in the UK), and I hope you've had a good time back so far! So as the title says, I'm going to share my experience of college this year so far, and hopefully it may help some of you for when you are faced with similar situations.


Last year I was in college, I had friends in college that had been my friends in school, however, I never really had the chance to make friends.  Obviously part of this is down to myself not being confident enough.  So after thinking about my career path, I decided that the course was not for me and there was a more suited course to me.  However, despite me not enjoying the course very much, I passed th…

My Favourite Quotes

Hey everyone!

If you've just gone back to school/college, I hope you had a good first week back!

I've always been into reading quotes, and absolutely love anything that has a quote written on! I could spend hours looking at quotes, and recently I have been going through a stage where all I want to do is look through and read quotes.  I have so many favourites, and I find each ones can mean a lot. Obviously everyone has different opinions, and you may think differently to me, so I will just say what I think of these quotes. The quotes are in no particular order as I don't think I could really choose an order! Also, none of these quotes are mine.

Lets get into the quotes...

'Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise' - I love this one because it's so true...whatever problems you face, they will disappear, and soon everything will be fine.  It just takes time.

'Train your mind to see the best in every situation' - I think this quote is good becau…

How To Stay Organised and Motivated

Hey everyone!

As it's getting closer to the time where everyone goes back to school/college after the summer holidays, I thought I would try and upload a helpful post of how to stay organised and motivated. I will list the tips, and I know they might be obvious, or maybe silly, but it all helps right?!

Tip 1: Buy a new bag

Buying a new bag isn't a necessity, but if like me you love bags then it's always nice to get a new one.  If one year I bought a really good bag, I haven't always needed to buy a new one every year, so I kept the same bag.  Like everything, there's just something exciting about having a new bag!

Tip 2: Buy some new stationary

One of my main reasons for loving going back to school/college after the summer is because I LOVE stationary, and love watching back to school hauls on YouTube.  I feel like when I buy new stationary before starting a new school year, it motivates me, and I'm the type of person who spends absolutely ages looking at what st…

Reading List

Hey everyone!

Recently, I have been reading a lot as I have been enjoying it, so I decided to share the books I am wanting to read after I finish my current book, which is Anne Frank - The diary of a young girl (which I bought in Amsterdam at the museum).  And also, reading has always been one of my hobbies. I've always been a big reader, but I find I go through stages of wanting to read loads, and other times I only want to read a few pages or not at all.  So, I'm just going to list 10 books I want to read, and I will link them all.  Once I have read these books listed, I may do a book review post, so lookout for book reviews!

1. The Fault In Our Stars - John Green
Ever since watching the film, I have wanted to read the book.  I recently purchased the book, and cannot wait to read it! I would also like to read more of John Green's novels.

2. What You See Is What You Get - Alan Sugar
After watching the apprentice this year, I wanted to read an Alan Sugar book, and came acr…
