    Month 3

    Right, this year needs to slow it down just a little please. Like, how are we into March already?   I know I kind of bombarded you all with Friday Favourites posts over the last week. Sorry about that! I was just very aware I owed you 4 posts for the past month! February was a busy busy time. Alongside uni work needing done, I actually was out and about quite a bit!   The first weekend saw me spend Friday night having casual drinks with friends and just talking – something I’ve greatly missed over the last while. The next day saw the start of the Six Nations Rugby…

    Day 14 – My Dreams

    Why are my dreams important and what are they? Well… For as long as I can remember, I’ve dreamt of being a mum and being a teacher. I’m currently working on getting into teaching – I’m studying physics at university in the hope of doing a PGCE or a PDGE as it’s known here in Scotland. I’m emailing schools, asking to do work shadowing for the month of June after my exams have all ended, as the more experience I have the more likely I am to be accepted for a course.   Being a mum may be slightly more difficult/complicated but I’ll figure it out somehow.   One of…

    September Starts!

    Yes!  The best month of the year! Everyone goes back to school/university, the air begins to turn crisp, my birthday, and everything else that happens in this glorious month! August semi flew by! And did you notice how well I kept to my schedule?? Quite proud of me! How about the goals? Well I finished Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! Just need to write a review on it… I’m getting bad at writing reviews… Am I happier in myself? I’m certainly happier and that’s a start!  Healthier lifestyle? Well it’s healthier… Again I can’t quite say I fully achieved this one… But it’s a start! With this month comes…

    My pre-21 bucket list

    Okay so I’m slightly panicked now as 2 weeks today is my 21st birthday and I just don’t feel old enough to be 21. Don’t get me wrong, 21 isn’t old. But it feels it to me. It’s the oldest I’ve ever been! Obviously, Katie, it’s a celebration of surviving your 21st year on this planet… With only 2 weeks to go, I thought I’d have a sit down and decide what things I want to have achieved by my 21st birthday. Now, remembering I only have 2 weeks to do this, I set to work on creating this list: Read a classic. Any classic whatsoever.  Get rid of all…

    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…

    Here comes the summer

    Hello! Welcome back to my delightful monthly round up and goal setting for the month ahead! Did you miss me yesterday? I know I certainly missed you guys!  I wish I had a good excuse for the lack of blogging yesterday but really I just spent the day in the sun and clean forgot about blogging until I was going to bed well after 11 and by that stage I was shattered so apologies for that! May was a mixed month, very quiet at the start and busy towards the end. But then, what can you expect during exam season? At the start, May was filled with me binge watching…

    Mockingjay Part 2

    Hello lovely friends! Firstly I must apologise, it seems my Paris post only actually was posted tonight and not last week when I wrote it. Technology doesn’t like me. It’s almost the end of the month already!! There’s so much stuff to do and I am beginning to panic a little. Retail therapy might be needed to resolve the stress…

    A Bit of a Ramble

    Good evening and welcome to anyone new joining us tonight! The first day of August is over, it’s scary how time flies. Who knows what this month will bring? In the last month I read at least 6 books and so this month I hope to be even half as successful. With the new month comes new goals and as I lie in bed tonight I’m thinking back over the last month.
