Anyone who knows me will know that I am a total Friends addict. So when I saw that there was such thing as Friends Fest and it was coming to OXFORD I could not pass up the opportunity to go. No way. So I invited the lovely Heather of heatherlerrynphotography.com to accompany me as I knew she was as obsessed as I am!
So I have finished my first year at university! I definitely had some ups and downs and things I wished I was prepared for, so I thought I’d share a few things I’ve learned already!
It’s finally my 20th birthday in a couple of days time! I have definitely learned a lot in 2 decades of life, through lots of ups and downs and experiences. So here are 20 things I’ve realised so far and need to keep reminding myself of!
River Island are KILLING IT with their holiday style at the moment! I love treating myself to something from River Island every now and again. Emphasis on the word ‘treat’ because it’s definitely not the cheapest of clothes shops but the quality is so high and I love some of their statement pieces.
I recently worked as a catering and events assistant for a couple of weddings at the most beautiful venue in Oxfordshire. As I am studying event management at university, pretty venues make me very happy. I had been told this was a high end and exclusive wedding location and I couldn’t wait to visit.
A few days ago, I was invited by the lovely Heather from heatherlerrynphotography.com to attend the book launch of Freedom Seeker by Beth Kempton. I had never heard of this book before so I did a little research and it looked amazing!
These days it seems like we have to start planning our futures and exactly what job we want to have so early on in our lives. We are expected to choose the degree we want to study, and so the career we definitely want to have, before some of us have even become adults. And yes, while students are expected to be making huge life decisions, they still have to raise their hand to ask to go to the toilet.
One of my new years resolutions this year was to start saying yes a lot more. I’m too often susceptible to staying in my comfort zone because, well, that’s where I am most comfortable. But I’ve realised that by turning things down, I’m not going to get where I want to be in life. The outcome of using those 3 letters could actually surprise me.
Procrastination is something we all do isn’t it. We’ll put off doing something important, like a university assignment or writing that blog post and then most of the time end up filling the time with something so pointless that we instantly regret it later. Sometimes procrastination time can accidentally last for hours, especially if you choose to watch a series on Netflix that instantly plays the next episode and you don’t stop it. So here are a list of things you can do that will take your mind off what you are supposed to be doing, but you will still be being productive with your time. I mean, everyone needs a break at some point!
Sometimes, it just the little simple things that happen in our daily lives that make us smile. Sometimes, the happiest moments are the unplanned, unexpected ones.
