5 things I learnt at university

As I’m finished my second year, I thought I would give you some advice on things I learnt at university. Two years out of a possibly 4 year degree, you’d like to think I’d learnt more than just 5 things. You would be right, but here’s the five that were important to me.

  1. Sleep is really important if you don’t want to spend your entire time in bed sick. I don’t mean it’s okay to skip uni to catch up on sleep though!
  2. Not everyone comes to university knowing how to cook and clean. Someone told me off in halls for bleaching the sink because they didn’t ‘want to eat off plates that have been in a bleached sink’. Sorry darling but ask your mother how she cleaned your kitchen sink at home.
  3. If you have a small problem with someone, speak to them about it. I know 2 people who didn’t get on at all for the first semester and so after Christmas they sat down to talk about what was annoying them. They ended up best friends by the end of the second semester.
  4. Try everything at least once. Clubs and societies are a great laugh and there are so many to choose from! Why limit yourself to only 3 from the start?
  5. There’s nothing wrong with leaving a club early and getting the good food from the kebab shop on your way home. You’ll certainly feel more alive the next day!

So there you have it. I could’ve continued, but I’ll save that for another day.

Feel Good Fridays

Just a short post today to explain that I may be posting less over the next few days. Rachel arrived in Glasgow last night and today we’re heading to Dundee for a few days. 
Before I go, I thought I’d share my most recent tv addiction with you – Pretty Little Liars. Before Rachel arrived, I finished episode 12 of season 3 (The Lady Killer) and to be honest I’m not happy with the twist that it ended on. So before I go any further…

If you don’t want spoilers, stop reading here! Do not go any further! 

I’ll try and keep this as based on the one episode as possible, especially considering I haven’t seen any further and so am not sure what direction this is moving in. But why is Toby part of the A gang? I mean, yeah I get it, the girls blinded his sister and then set him up so it looked like he had done it… But I still feel he didn’t really have the proper motivation. Especially not at this stage in the story. Plus, he’s my favourite male character and I am not okay with the direction this is heading in. Also, where has Jason disappeared to? Have the A gang got to him? 

I also found it rather far fetched that Mona was able to just walk out of the mental institution she’s in. I mean, I know A is capable of a lot but even managing to have night nurses on duty who didn’t recognise a patient’s face? That was very good organising on their behalf!  
But I’m not going to think about it anymore. It’s a tv show (and apparently a book series?) so I shouldn’t be reading into it that much.
Have a great weekend everyone!
