Okay so I’m already behind on today’s to do list as this was meant to be posted at 11am today but shh, we’ll just let that slide. Hello everyone! I’m sure many of you will see this and wonder why on earth I’m posting this but I ran a brief poll on twitter last night to ask if people would be interested in seeing today’s to do list and it came back as a unanimous yes, so here goes!
- Write at least one blog post for today
- Schedule or at lest draft posts up until Friday of this week
- Order some prints from the lovely Tarnya (@sweet_allure)’s etsy site – honestly you should have a look at them!
- Tidy and clean my bedroom. With being ill yesterday (and yes, a migraine counts as being ill), I was a bit of a slob and just left things lying.
- Finish cleaning the flat (again, was ill yesterday so didn’t finish this)
- Go to the gym or at least get some fresh air
- Do at least 3 hours revision for my final resit
- Look into classroom assistant jobs as I think I’ve found a course I would love to do!
- Speak to family back home. This happens that regularly I often forget that I’m not actually with them. Think we spoke 4 times yesterday?
- Put a wash on and actually deal with it before the 4th spin. We don’t have a tumble drier so I tend to over spin things
- Finish reading The Cursed Child
- Look at other jobs and courses that I could do instead of being at university.
Wow okay there’s a lot there to be getting on with, I’d better hurry up and get started! What are your plans for today?
Have an awesome Sunday, folks!
Well once again it’s that time of the week when I tell you all the oh so exciting things I got up to in the past 7 days. Did you know, Sundays are the most popular day for people to view my blog? That’s quite interesting actually. Sunday’s the day I tend to not be online as much! Well Saturdays are when I tend to take a break from social media anyway so in my mind Sunday wouldn’t be a popular day. But you know what you like to do, who am I to question it?
My most popular post this week was Well then, and before I get into anything to do with my usual Sunday post I’d just like to thank everyone who took the time out of their day to read and comment on it. You’ve all helped me so much, but I’ll come to that later.
Monday, I was awake early to see Rachel off to the airport before I then spent the day revising. I did take the time to question whether technology and social media have taken over our lives, what do you think? Let me know here! I also shared an open letter to my mum as I felt like I needed to get things off my chest. I think Monday should’ve been a sign of the upcoming week.
Tuesday was another day of revision except, for a change of scene, Jason and I went Pokemon hunting in Glasgow. This was my first ever Pokemon hunt and it was actually quite fun once I figured out how to catch the Pokemon!
On Wednesday, I began to go a little bit crazy. No amount of revision seemed to be helping me, and in the end I wound myself up beyond belief. I think Wednesday night was the night I began to be honest with myself with regards to university and life in general. That’s when I wrote “Well then”. After a mini break down, a lot of tears, and some wise words from a few friends, I was calm enough to bed.
I woke up on Thursday and phoned home to tell them how I was feeling. Again, more tears. It took a long time for me to calm down again. To be honest, I was still in hysterics when a few friends arrived. It meant I could distract myself for an hour before the exam. Sitting the exam, I’m no longer sure if it was actually an okay paper or if it just felt that way because I was so scared about not knowing anything for it, does that make sense? Afterwards, I came home and crawled into bed where I spent the rest of the night.
Friday morning dawned and I had to go back to uni for another exam. This one I can honestly say was a disaster. I don’t know whether it was a mind blank or if I’d ever known it to begin with. And so I came back and started job hunting.
Yesterday, I woke up with a pounding headache for the 4th time this week. I thought nothing of it, took a few painkillers and started to clean the flat. However, after an hour, the headache was getting worse and worse, I began to feel dizzy if I even lowered my head to look at what I was doing, and any time I bent over I thought I was going to be sick. After a while, I practically crawled back to bed to try and sleep off whatever was wrong with me. 5 hours later I accepted this was a migraine and not a headache, and nowhere in the flat was dark or quiet enough to be of any help. I phoned home to ask for advice and was told to take some stinger painkillers and just keep sleeping. Eventually it lightened to the steady dull pain I’m used to, and I could actually sit up in bed without feeling nauseous. Within half an hour, Nuala was back!! So I forced my company on her for a few hours until we went our separate ways to head to bed.
Today, I’ll probably finish the cleaning I started yesterday, continue some revision, tidy my room, and maybe actually go to the gym! I’m excited to exercise again, is that sad?
How was your week?
