Dealing with the Unknown

I don’t know about you, but when I don’t know something, I’ll often try my best to find out the answer, or work out what’s going on. To put it bluntly, I don’t like not knowing. Even worse, is feeling out of control.

It can feel almost like a spiral. As if there’s one thing that I don’t know, and that’ll spark another question, and if they don’t get answered, then the anxiety starts to mount. Sometimes, it’s a quick fix: as simple as asking a couple of questions, and my mind is put to rest. But sometimes, it’s not that simple.

How to Get the Most Out of …

I’d imagine that if you’re reading this, you’re probably starting to think about, or in the process of looking at universities. I’m hoping that I can put together a simple guide on ‘How to Get the Most Out of a University Open Day’, so that you can make sense of what can be a full-on, information heavy day, and get you in a good place to make some important decisions.

The Importance of Rest

I’ve just been blessed to be able to go away on holiday for a few days, and spent five days in the Costa del Sol with my mum. It was lovely to have some quality mother-daughter time, but also really nice to just get away from everything.

It’s been about a month or so since I’ve managed to get a post written and uploaded, and for that I’m sad, but it’s partly because of what I want to talk about today. I haven’t had the time to write content that I’d be proud of, and I had to prioritise resting when possible!

The Next Chapter

This week I’ve made (or, more like finalised), quite a big decision.

Time is flying by fast, and before I know it, I’ll be facing the next chapter.

A Year in the Life of a …

If you follow me on any form of social media, you’re probably aware that we have a lovely cockapoo, called Bonnie. As someone who was 100% not a dog person, Bonnie has well and truly won my heart! I may not like other dogs, but I love Bonnie.

Come September, I will be moving to university. I’ll hopefully be sharing more about this in the not too distant future, but for now, that means I’ll be away from home for months at a time – and I’m definitely going to be missing Bon.

Behind the scenes at Hogwarts! (DIY)

Welcome to the next instalment in the Potter blogs! You may have seen that about a month ago, I threw a Potter Party for my sister, with a lot of help from the family. You may also know, from this blog, that I’m a big Potter fan!

Anyway, in my research to put together this bash, I spent a lot of time on Pinterest. As a result, I’ve been inspired to but together a ‘behind-the-scenes’ type post of some of the process.

Honest Reflections | Learning from Children

I haven’t really spoken much about what I’ve been doing this year, in terms of my internship. I mentioned it – only to explain how my plans had changed, but other than that, I’ve kept pretty quiet.

I’d like to change that though, as I’ve been learning an awful lot this year, and I think it’d be good for me to document this, as well as share it.

So… what have I learnt?
