It’s Been a Long Week!

I’ve never been so glad for a week to be over!

It’s a really stressful at university at the moment, as I’ve got so much work to catch up on now I have my laptop back, and the Pagan Society I’ve rebooted is finally taking off, giving me even more work to get going on. Don’t get me wrong, I adore being busy more than anything, and I love helping others, especially if it’s an activity I love as well, like the fact I now volunteer in the local charity bookshop in town. I often come out with more books than I can either carry or afford, as a treat, and I really adore filling my room with all the books I can fit into it. I also grab a Krispy Creme treat on my way back home to say a ‘well done’ to myself for the day.

But this has been the most stressful week, because I’ve been set another two assignments on top of the ones I already have to catch up on, Pagan Society has gotten hectic and on top of that, I’ve just had my sleep medication changed and my Irlen Syndrome stuff is being sorted. And my ADHD stuff is being dealt with so it won’t be much longer until I get my assessment done and dusted. 

It’s also been frustrating as I’m struggling to motivate myself to do what I’m at university to do, which is write. I’ve written a few poems which have actually been praised by lecturers, so maybe my poetry isn’t as bad as I thought it was. But I haven’t written much in the way of stories, and the geisha novel has had a nose dive as there isn’t enough information for my liking for me to ensure the accuracy of the story. I reckon it is something I can work on when I’m a lot older, and have the skills that are required to write such a detailed world of fiction. 





So, whilst I sit in the living room back in Hampshire, attempting to write both coursework and general literature, I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Catch Up Time!

So, I thought that a catch up post is well in order. I wanted to not do many of these on this blog, as I made that mistake before, and lost views/followers. But this blog needs a weekly touch down, so you guys don’t end up being convinced that I’ve fallen into a rather suspicious looking rabbit hole or anything…

Anywayc catch up. This past week has been interesting. Monday was same old, same old. Tuesday I was at work, where I had a nasty experience involving graffiti/vandalism and near dismissal, so not great. Wednesday was quiet. Other than my counselling session. Yes, I have a counsellor, don’t be so shocked! Due to the naff stuff that took place in my past, I’ve decided that in order for me to get some new perspective on life and leave the past shite behind, that I’ll go for a few sessions in order to get it all off my chest, seriously, baggage to university? Would much rather not. Thursday I went to see Monsters University with Josh, and it was a lovely little date (first cinema date in ages, and Josh was sensible enough to keep shushed!). Friday was a trip to the Apple store for my sister in law to purchase a wireless keyboard for her iPad. Saturday was the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, a wonderful event to raise a spot of money for local kids with cystic fibrosis. I took lots of photos, but as they were on Josh’s phone, I can’t do my promotional post on it until he emails them to me (Josh, I know you read this blog, you have my email address), so look out for that. I also went to one of Josh’s friend’s 18th birthday, and I debuted my brand new Topshop dress, what do you lot think?


I think I scrub up alright! Would of been better in contact lenses, but I lost my pot at camp, and had to bin my lenses. Sunday was a pajama day, simply because I overslept, and ended up not going into work. Today was quiet, although I got to pop into town on my way home from Josh’s, whilst Waterstones was quiet, and picked up a couple of new books (will I ever learn?)


Here they are! The pink one is Evelina, by Francee Burney, the writer who inspired Austen herself to put pen to paper. It’s a novel of letters, which is a different way, a very voyeuristic way of telling a story, and I  am enjoying the experience. The other book, Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell, is a darker tale of how personal tragedy can awaken you to darker injustice. I haven’t started it yet, but will get to it after I’ve finished Evelina.


However, I did clear out my wardrobe, and this bag is full of clothes to donate to the charity shop! My wardrobe of casual wear now looks like this:


I sorted them into garments as well, so it will be easier to pick out an outfit!

Only downside was when I unpacked my suitcase, and, discovered, to my horror, that this slipped into my clothes…


Josh, I do know you sometimes read this blog, and now would be a good time to get hold of me! This is your drama shirt!

And, on that note, I hope you all had a good week/weekend, and hopefully this blog should get updated more often in the next week, including rebooting the blog challenge and more of The World According To Fred!

Until then x
