Wishful Wednesday and other such news.

Okay before I begin tonight, I just want to apologise for my complete lack of posting over the past 2 weeks. Again, there’s been no real reason for it except I’m revising for resits and too lazy to write the posts earlier. Although I suppose when I first started out blogging I never intended to blog every day unless there was something worth saying.


So once again, sorry! Especially if you’ve been looking for me recently. I’ve recently started watching Scandal, especially when revising. Mary kept telling me to watch it, especially since I love Greys Anatomy and How To Get Away With Murder. How right she was! Kerry Washington stars as Olivia Pope, a so-called lawyer who acts as a “fixer” for the rich and famous (sometimes infamous) of Washington D.C. It’s a great show and I can’t honestly think of a show I’d rather be watching. 

If I’m being honest, my love for all things presidential at the minute definitely adds to the reasons I’m enjoying Scandal. However, I love seeing actors and actresses from other shows that I’ve watched appearing in different roles. An example of this would be Jeff Perry. He’s a fantastic actor. I enjoyed watching him act Thatcher Grey in Grey’s Anatomy, but now I adore him as Cyrus Bean in Scandal. I don’t want to give anything away really but Cyrus and his husband are so cute together and Jeff’s acting moved me to tears today at a certain point in season 3 – no spoilers from anyone who’s seen it!
Now that I’ve covered my TV addict’s part of the post, I thought I’d move onto Wishful Wednesday. Unless you’d rather I stopped that? Again, I’m not really sure if you’re enjoying it so please please please send me some feedback! 
It’s been a long week. I’ve started revising morning, afternoon and night, with very little time for sleep or anything else for that matter. So for today’s Wishful Wednesday, I choose to pass these exams and graduate next summer. For obvious reasons (I hope) I want to pass these exams. After the exams, I will progress onto 3rd year. My desire to be a teacher is still going strong. Will I have to change the theme of my blog if/when that happens? Who knows. We’ll cross that bridge when it comes to it.
The past 10 days or so, as I’ve said, have mainly been spent revising. After a few days at the library, I switched to revising at home. Rachel finished her exams and to celebrate we had an Indian takeaway and watched The Lady In The Van. Now my rating of this isn’t very high, it was good but I’m not quite sure if it was good enough to deserve all the awards and praise it received. Definitely would rather have been watching Scandal. Rachel then went camping with Cameron for a few days in the rain, while the rest of us here in Lisburn went out for dinner which resulted in a rather interesting Sunday morning. Have I told you my uncle is living with us at the minute? I can’t really go into why or how at the minute so if I remember I’ll come back to it another time. 


Finally, it’s 17 days, 17 hours and 50 odd minutes until we set off for Ibiza! I’ve never been so excited to go on holiday. Brief throwback to this day last year when I wrote Packing. Can you believe my blog is 2 years old? However, please ignore the adds at the top of the picture. It would be a miracle if I was pregnant! 

I can’t believe it isn’t even 10 o’clock yet, I’m exhausted! Except before I go to sleep I still have some more revision to do. Blogging is a nice change. If I’m lucky, I’ll be going to sleep around 12:30am and get up again at 7ish to start over again. Why do I do this to myself? I swear to whatever anyone believes in, I will work even harder next year. I need to. 
So goodnight! Wish me luck with Nuclear and Particle Physics… Maybe it’ll send me to sleep 😂
Happy Hump Day!

Wishful Wednesday

Okay so firstly I want to apologise for yesterday’s post (Two for Tuesday) as I had scheduled it to be  around 10pm – or so I thought. Instead, it went at 1pm, so all my “tonight” comments were way off – sorry!
But enough of that, how are you? I feel like I haven’t actually talked to you properly in a while. Don’t know if that’s down to trying out these new themed posts or if I’ve just been slightly distant recently. Has that come across in my posts?
Today’s Wishful Wednesday’s addition to the bucket list is to find and do well in a job I love. I went to the second round of interviews today, except it wasn’t really an interview as such. Instead, they had me doing the one thing they promised me I wouldn’t be doing – going door to door and asking people to sign up for a direct debit donation to a charity. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for donating to charities! However, I am completely against going from door to door, invading people’s personal property and asking them to divulge bank information to you when they’ve only just met you. I know how uncomfortable it makes me feel if someone comes to my door asking me to sign up for something, so I definitely don’t want to make other people feel the same. 

So after almost 5 hours of knocking on doors, I asked to go home. I had been told on the phone last week, and in person yesterday, that the position would definitely not involve going door to door, and I wasn’t impressed at the lie. Following my request to leave, I was told that if I left I wouldn’t be considered for the job. Now I have to admit that at that point I may have seen red and told them what they could do with their job. So once again, I’m job hunting. Feel free to point me in the direction of any jobs you know of!

Now, if I managed to do well in University, I would love to go into teaching. The more I think about it, the more interested I am in Primary Education. For anyone who’s been here a while, you might remember my work experience in a primary school last year. I adored it! It made me desperate to get my degree and get started on my career in education. However, over the last few days, I’ve found myself wondering if it would be possible to get into teaching without the physics degree I’m currently working on. What are your thoughts?

Wishful Wednesday

Hey! Please be patient with me as I try a few new things here on my blog, I felt like it needed a bit of a change up. Before I start, how are you today? I can hardly believe it’s only Wednesday, feels like this week has been going on forever!

Today I was up at 6:30am to get ready to go to my granny’s house to help her clean for my cousins coming over for this wedding. We worked from before 9am until at least 3:30pm so suffice to say I’m exhausted tonight. Legs are shaved, everywhere’s exfoliated, and I’m ready for my first ever fake tan tomorrow! Kind of excited, kind of nervous. Not sure what to expect. Have you had a spray tan before? Any advice you can give me?
Anyway, sorry, once again I have managed to ramble on! Don’t know why you let me do this, I must bore you to death with my ramblings (feel free to disagree). I decided to trial a theme for a few days of the week, ie Wishful Wednesday. I have decided to write a “wish list” of things I want to see or do over the next lot of months and hopefully you’ll be with me when I can tick these off!
Today’s Wishful Wednesday:

  • See Les Misérables live on stage, either on the West End or Broadway.

I’m sure over the last few months I have mentioned at least once my love for Les Misérables. The music, the story, everything about it makes me feel that warm tingly feeling course through my spine. I can’t watch it without crying at least once. Now, if I get those feelings just listening to the music or watching the film, imagine what it would be like on stage.
What would you put at the start of your wish list? Start big or small? Let me know in the comments below! Or feel free to tell me if you don’t like the idea of themed days, any feedback is welcome!
