onwards and upwards.

Wow. It's been awhile hasn't it blogspot? I must apologise starting back at University really took it out of me, third year is draining me from within but I'm just starting to resurface. I've had a long bad few weeks, my mentality and self esteem has been at it's lowest and I just didn't want to get out of bed in the mornings so I'm going to try and regularly update my blog with 10 things that's made me happy that week. Starting now.

10 things I've been happy about:
  • The gym - I NEVER thought I'd say that but at the moment whenever I'm stressed it really relieves me, I've lost half a stone since starting back at Uni and almost 10% body fat too!
  • My family - they are my everything.
  • My friends - I take them for granted, I'm miserable, I'm distant sometimes but I'm just thankful they're there. Without them I couldn't carry on.
  • I left the job I trialed for a month and went back to my store in Manchester, I'm a firm believer that you should be surrounded by people who make you happy and they didn't.
  • 3s A Crowd - My new radio show with two of my best friends every Monday 3-5pm on Looprevil.com (you should defo tune in, it's a shambles)
  • St John's Ambulance - I'm just super excited about embarking on this and looking cool as in my uniform, plus they're helping me out with my final year project whilst I make videos from them so that's a huge plus.
  • My birthday - my 21st is coming up and I'm having a party and it's been so fun organising it, I've got a makeshift photobooth, an endless amount of buntings and some awfully fantastic photos of me as a kid.
  • Wicked - my lovely friend Amy bought me tickets for my birthday and I got to see it for the second time, it was even better the second time round too.
  • Time outs - I'm off out for a day of shopping and food and the cinemas tomorrow with my little sister
  • Skydiving - I've just signed up to do a charity skydive in January in honour of the Mind charity that supports those struggling with mental help (I'm gonna make a post on this soon and would LOVE any donations, I'm aiming to raise £500+)

So to everyone that still follows me, I thank you for having patience I want nothing more than to post regularly but I think words escape me too often. Life really is too short, find what and who you love and latch on to them. They are everything.


It's not the end.

Okay, so anybody that read my previous post would've saw my emotional kinda breakdown, I get into cycles of low points and I'm not the person to tell those around me so I find blogging my pain through the Internet helps. I want to thank the lovely comments I received, the best cure is niceness and you guys know how to spread love. ❤️

I've decided to keep in touch with the world I'm going to start weekly posts of what I've been up to, they can only be positive things, stuff I've done that's made me happy or appreciate things. Project life. I'm going to start trying new things and hopefully meet some more people along the way, I need to break my bad habits of awkwardness and get out of this mid mid life crisis.

Last weekend my Grandparents celebrated 46 years of marriage, they make me the proudest granddaughter because they've given me so much love the past 20 years and they have the kindest hearts. They truly make life worth living.

I then celebrated my return to Liverpool for my third year with a ten mile bike ride, my poor butt!!! I almost didn't make it. But I believe Liverpool is one of the most beautiful cities and throws some of the prettiest scenes at you even when you're pedalling like your tires are flat whilst sweating from everywhere. (Flattering I know!)

This weekend just gone I went to my friends 18th, we went cocktail making and its was fabulous, I made a solar flare and got to set it on fire and everything. I even shook the cocktail maker that hard I bust my own lip, so hardcore. I love nights out with work friends, some of loveliest people I know. Even if I've just transferred stores to Liverpool, I think I'm gonna have to transfer back I choose happiness over money anyday of the week.

And then yesterday me and my flat mate decided to take flat matters into our own hands and decorated it with shelves and maps and fairy lights and general prettiness... how cute is it now? My favourite bit definitely has to be...
I love them!

Other things that have made this past week or so pretty good:
- I joined St John's. Ambulance service, I'm hoping it'll give me a foot in the door health care wise if I go into my nursing and I get a cool uniform!
- Me and my two Uni friends have just signed upto radio and will have our own show 3-5 every Monday
- I got season 9 of Bones which now completes my DVD collection so far HUZZAH. I also finally purchased Ashes To Ashes Series 3, it was missing from my shelf.
- My 21st birthday party is next month and I'm having a makeshift photobooth so I've spent the week by cheesy props, I can't wait.

So what's made you feel happy this week? Thanks again for being lovely lovely people.
