Grab a cuppa, you’re all in for a rambley, all over the place blog.
A little bit of a catch up, look back at October, goals for November, and also talking about the iconic film that goes by the name of Bohemian Rhapsody, which I need to quickly add, is incredible.
October has been a bit of an all over the place month for me, good nonetheless. I’ve just been rushed off my feet with about a million and one jobs, deadlines and university projects. I started back at university at the start of October and let me tell you they have thrown us in at the deep end; a lovely way to start of second year. A ball of stress, but hey ho, whats new. I’ve been loving university since being back – if you’ve been a reader for a while, you’ll know that in March I had full intentions of dropping out, but boy am I glad I didn’t. I’ve changed and grown so much as a person since then (cringe), however it’s resulted in me having a lot more confidence in myself and also a bit more self belief, shock, I never thought the day would come.
I wanted to briefly touch upon my mental health here too, because since moving back to university, I have been so much better mentally. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a fair few days where I’ve literally had to drag myself out of bed to face the day, still got through them though didn’t I! I’ve learnt a lot of coping mechanisms lately – it’s really helping me stay on top of things, as a result my mental health has been fairly stable recently, can I get a woo yah.
I also got the chance to take a trip to London this month, which I don’t often get the opportunity to do. I had a brilliant time wandering round all the high end department stores, pretending I’m rich enough to be walking around Liberty’s, I’m not. The outfit that I opted for, was possibly the most blogger-esc outfit, you ever did see, but was also my favourite outfit of this month. These red trousers, have sat in my wardrobe for the longest time, and this month I finally grew a pair of balls and wore them out, and rocked them, even if I do say so myself. Paired with a basic white jumper, classic converse (of course), with my blogger look being topped off with a baker boy hat. I’ve never felt more like an art student and blogger in all my life, loved every second of it though. These red trousers will definitely be getting a lot more wear!
Alongside my to do list for university – which is as long as my arm, I’ve also been balancing my Blog/YouTube, and working for Leicester Media Productions and DMU Vloggers. Admittedly I couldn’t tell you how the f I’m managing it all, but here I am, somehow coping. These past couple of months my social medias have really taken off, it’s incredibly rewarding to see how much my hard work is paying off. Media has also recently become a very big interest of mine, so much so, I’m potentially looking at doing my placement year in this field, exciting times!
Last weekend my parents came to visit me in Leicester, being from Brighton, I don’t often get to see them when I’m studying, so I had a lovely weekend with them both, drinking too much gin, eating too much food, and having lots of laughs. Alongside lots of shopping, my parents and I took a trip to the cinema to see Bohemian Rhapsody. Now, before last Saturday, I hadn’t ever really listened to Queen (don’t come at me), I just associate them with singing ‘We Are The Champions’ and that just takes me back to sports day at school as the winners would always sing that, days I’ve tried my best to block out my memory, I guess you could say sports day was never really my thing and I’m a massive sore loser. Anyway, I digress. What I wanted to say, was that even if you’ve never shown much of an interest in Queen, you need to go and see this film. Like, need to. I was in tears, yet was just in awe of the band. And how fucking cool is Freddie Mercury. No word of a lie, Queen have been on repeat in my headphones for the past 4 days, and you know what I have no shame. Just 20 years late to the party.
I’ve just re-read this post and my god is it all over the place, it was one of those evenings where I had a million and one things I wanted to write about, so chucked it all in one post. Anyway, I thought I’d finish this post off with some November goals. Starting with getting my butt into gear and applying for more placements. I’ve not been great at this, primarily because I get to scared to apply for them, but this month I will knuckle down, I promise. With it being November, I’ll also be spending the month drafting up Christmas content for my channels, as, fingers crossed, I’m really hoping to do Blogmas this year, so the festivities have already begun for me. Please tell me I’m not the only blogger that cant create festive content without being in full on Christmas mode? Alexa, play Fairytale of New York.
All my love,
