Finished second year of uni!

Well the title says it second year of uni is all over and done with. I can't believe how quick this year has gone, it only seems like two minutes ago since it started! It's crazy that I'm 2/3 of the way through my course already! 
Anyway, now that my essays are all done, all I have to do now is revise for a couple of weeks and then I have my exam, but I am now basically free for a few months! It feels so good! I have so many plans with my family and friends so I can't wait for all my friends to be back so that we can do what we do best: get messy at Welly and Spiders ;) If you're wondering what I'm talking about, then I'll explain...So, Welly and Spiders are two nightclubs in Hull that we go to quite a lot and we love them and often end up in a bit of a state but who cares?! we have so much fun there! I actually went to Welly last night with my best friend and it was hilarious and we celebrated finishing this year of uni with a bang! So yeah, there will be many more nights like this coming up as well as breaks away and holidays and days out and adventures which I cant wait to share with you!

Let me know what plans you have over this half term and the summer!

Essays, essays and more essays..

My life at the moment seems to be focused entirely on one thing: Essays
I have four essays due in all around the same time (one on Friday, the other three all next week), so my days are currently spent on the laptop trying not to go over the word count by too much! It's been a crazy few weeks planning all of these essays and researching and typing them up, but I'm getting there. Earlier today I handed one essay in (finally!), I have another complete and I'm about half way through my third one. So hopefully by next Tuesday I will be essay free for a few months, and along with that, my stress should just drift away...hopefully..
Is anybody else writing essays for university/college/school? If so, I have a little tip: don't try and cram loads of work in each day, just pace yourself out...I usually plan to write between 500 and 700 words a day when doing an essay, that way it keeps me calm(ish) and I feel as though I'm more focused and word things much better!
And have breaks! This is vital and very important! Make sure you have a quick breather for every half an hour of typing you do. Walk away from the laptop/computer, stretch your legs, drink some water...get a bit of fresh air for a few minutes! A few minutes of space can really help you when writing essays, so make sure you don't over exert yourself because it will just make you tired and then your focus will fly out of the window!

I've basically finished my second year at university now so I can relax a little bit more and get started on all the plans I've made! But for now, it's back to writing this essay...I'll be back soon!

It's been a while...'s been a long time since I last made a post and there are quite a few reasons for it, but I'm not going to bore you with all the details. To cut a long story short; I felt as though I wasn't very organised with my blog and at the time I started it, I was applying for uni and things just spiralled out of control and I kind of forgot about it. However, for a while now I've been wanting to start a new one up, but I decided to just re-start this one up and go from there.

So....I am back. I'll be blogging more often from now on, and nothing has changed really..I'll be blogging about essentially everything, although I feel it will be more interesting this time around! So I guess I'll 'speak' soon!

Thanks for reading!
