Happy Halloween everyone! Firstly, I would like to apologize for my lack of blogging. I would prefer to have time off then rush a blog post or only put 50% into it so I decided to keep focusing on university for as long as I needed to. My reading week is next week though so I will have much more time then to get some blog posts written so I am not completely MIA.
So, anyway, what have I been getting up to in October:
Well, we have the obvious: university. Yes, I am still here. I haven’t dropped out or ran away in fear. Dare I say, I am actually enjoying myself. For the newbies to my blog, I am currently in Liverpool studying Marketing and I decided to live in student accommodation this year. Even though moving out was the last thing I thought I would do this time last year, I am so glad I have. I love having my own little space and getting involved with university life has been so much easier because I live in the middle of everything. I do have to admit though, I have gone home every weekend. Because it’s only a 30 minute train journey away (which is why I chose this university) it isn’t so bad. Even if it’s just for one night, I go home when I have nothing on. My course is going well. We have projects this semester where we have to work in groups so that has been a lot easier than having to figure things out on my own. My semester group is really nice and everything so settling in has been easier than I thought. I am also the course rep for level 4 marketing (I do love a fancy title) so I have to go around everybody and ask their opinion on the course. I have also got myself a job at my university as a student advocate. This is a paid position and I get to help out at open days, college visits and I even welcome international student here at the airport. Finally, I have joined two societies: yoga and student minds. Yoga is so tricky! I have done yoga many a time before coming to uni but this yoga is so much exercise and I am not used to it haha. I actually come away from yoga with sore muscles! And then the other society is student minds. This is a charity who support students that are struggling with mental health and just want a quiet night in instead of a mad night out. I am going to do a blog post all about what I have decided to get involved in at university but this is a rough guide to what I have joined so far.
Also in October, I have started watching Riverdale’s season 2. I didn’t think they could keep the drama from season 1 up but they really have. I adore it (and I secretly want to be Veronica – if I had her wardrobe then I would be a happy girl). If you haven’t seen Riverdale on Netflix then I couldn’t reccommend it more. It’s about a group of 18/19 year olds who are from a town called Riverdale and a boy is found dead. It’s a mystery to who killed him and the whole town is trying to either find out or cover up who did it. Loads of other drama gets piled on too but the main plot at the beginning is when guy, who is the son of one of the main families in Riverdale, is found dead. It sounds really dark but there are still some lighter parts and it’s not scary as such. It’s just a little dark in places.
This month, we also released a brand new product range at helpmeorganics and it’s our Christmas range! Without sounding over-bias, it’s my favourite scent ever! I adore Christmas but I cannot stand the smell of cinnamon so I have never been able to fill my home with Christmas-y-ness. So, my Mum being the doll that she is, created me my own Christmas scent and it smelt do amazing that we decided that it was going to be the first scent ever made underneath the helpmeorganics brand. If you would like to have a look at our whole collection, you can HERE.
Finally, something that I would also like to talk about in another post, I went on my first (proper) night out. There’s being out of your comfort zone then there was how I was feeling. As I write this, I am actually thinking about Halloween make up because I am going out tonight as well. Although I am fully aware it won’t be the night of my life, I am still surprised with how a night out generally goes. I thought you go to a dodgy looking place that smells funny, dark and dirty and there are drug dealers everywhere with people lying on the floor passed out but, thank fully, I didn’t come across anywhere like that. Yes, I didn’t feel clean and yes my shoes were sticking to the floor but everyone was just dancing and were having a good time, which made it easier to stop panicking and start to let my hair down. I did stay sober though.
November is setting up for being a really good month as well! I have bonfire night at the Albert Dock in Liverpool and the Christmas light switch on next week. Plus, it’s reading week so I have some time off too. AND tomorrow me and my Mum are doing our annual Christmas tree picking at the Christmas tree farm that we went to last year. Now Halloween is nearly over, I can get 100% excited for Christmas and can’t wait!
I hope you all have an amazing November! I promise I will start blogging again properly this month 🙂
