Where have I been?

17 Dec 2015



Hey guys,

Yes, I've been away a while and no, there is no dramatic, underlying reason (thank the lord). I'd love to explain my absence with a long list of big and exciting things I've been up to, but the sad truth of the matter is I've just been at University, and blogging has been neither a priority nor something I've felt happy to focus on recently.

I guess final year just hit me slightly harder than I thought it would.

One minute, I'd forked out for a new swanky blog design, planned three posts a week for the next few months, was over the moon about how it was all going and was interacting on Twitter every single day. Next minute, I was back at university beginning to look into graduate jobs and swamped with stress, work, and trying to enjoy the student life for the last year.

So now I guess I'll try to summarise the past few months in a little list...

In my absence, I've been:

* Treated to a day out in York, complete with Afternoon Tea at Betty's and two amazing friends...

Having the most delicious birthday meal at Sukhothai in Leeds...

Developing a love for Call Lane, Leeds, and Jake's Bar in particular...

Becoming the Editor for a Joint Honours languages newsletter...

Spending a lovely weekend in Durham...

Presenting a topical news story in French...

Venturing to Ilkley Moors on a very hungover, very windy, very cold day...

Going on the cutest date in London...

But having no idea what will happen next...

Having a glass of wine every weekday of one week (it is basically Christmas)...

Celebrating the first housemate to get a graduate job...

Going to the Fireworks and actually enjoying them...

Getting very frustrated with the lack of seats in the new swanky library...

Developing a sad but not unexpected obsession for Justin Bieber's new tunes...

Beginning How I Met Your Mother...

Eating, as per usual, like a horse...

Absolutely nailing the 'chewy cookie'...

Wandering around Lincoln Christmas Markets...

Falling in love with Rock City, Nottingham...

Spending the best weekend with home friends in Nottingham...

Dealing with slugs in the kitchen...

Winning far too many drunken games of Cards Against Humanity...

Finally eating at the oh so charming Botanist in Leeds...

Getting drawn into this year's I'm a Celeb...

Having a drunken Christmas Dinner...

Writing my first assessed English Literature essay of the year, and getting a first!!


I don't feel confident that I can get straight back into it, nor do I feel confident that I can come up with a billion and one great ideas every week, but I'd like to try. I'd also like to try to get back on top of reading other people's blogs, so if you see my name popping up on everyone's comments, I'm just trying to be friendly and not trying to spam, I promise...

So, yeah. I'm back, and I have plans.
