Positive Thoughts Only.

It's the start of a new week and I thought I'd start with posting a new blog post before I officially start uni. I've been back in Preston for a week now, moved back into my flat from last year so everything is familiar. New places can be scary. I decided to put some effort into to making my room feel comfortable because I'll be living here for the next nine months. 
I've got a tradition so to say, when I'm moving back to uni. For the last two years, I've stocked up on magazine and books before heading back. This year I picked up Elle, Oh Comely, Vogue and Dazed & Confused magazine. I'll read them all first and use they for inspiration and picture references. I managed to get my hands on Alexa Chung's new book 'it', got to love Waterstone giftcards. If I could, I would totally live in there. Haven't got around to reading it yet though, it's the next book to read after I've read The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald. 
I start my second year in less than two days. I can say that I'm a tad bit terrified to be honest because the grades start to count but I promise myself I wouldn't start the year off negatively. Positive thoughts only. I'm excited and nervous about getting the first project. I don't know why either. It's me being a weirdo.
I've just realised that I need to work out a system to juggle my uni work, my blog and commissions that I might get. I think I need to start to start keeping a diary of some sort. That means I need to buy one. Spreading my time out so I don't leave anything to the last minute.


  1. I've got the same mixed feelings about starting back next week on my course. Half of me wants to get stuck in but then I mustn't get too caught up in grades. Hopefully you can get a good uni/everything else balance, I'm telling myself it will be easier in 2nd year.
    All the best of luck :)

    1. Totally agree. Need to balance everything out just right and not get weighed down with commissions and not spend time doing my uni work. Hopefully :)
      Best of luck to you too!
