First Essay of the Year Started!

OK so I have only written the title and a few words but hell I'm proud of myself. The essay doesn't have to be handed  in until the end of next week and is only 1500 words long. This time last year I would be putting it off until next week to do so surely this is an improvement. Now all I have to do is turn it into a paragraph or two of waffling and I will be well on my way! As much as I enjoy uni I will be glad when writing about things that I really don't care about are over and done with. Hopefully in a few years I will have my very own writing career and be able to write about things that I really care for. Like I do here I guess only in a "proper" capacity. Still, it's nice that I know there's people who read and care about what I have to say. That's why I keep coming back. Thanks to anyone mental enough to read my blog :)) x

The Right Thing

What is the right thing to do? How do we know what the right decision is? This is something I've been considering over the past couple of days and I have made my mind up that it is not always the option that feels the best for you. Depending on what the situation is of course, sometimes you really do just have to put yourself first. But when it comes to people and relationships you have to try and do what's best for them, if you care about them enough. Whatever will cause your loved one the least hurt, grief and pain is what you need to do, even if it makes you feel like utter balls afterwards. At least the feeling of knowing you have done the right thing for them should be enough to get yourself through the pain that you will feel.

Naughty naughty

OK I've been really really naughty and not updated this for absolutely ages. Well as of right now the break ends! I would love to say I've been really busy doing lots of uni work but sadly this isn't even the case. After doing nothing for weeks and weeks I've found getting back into the swing of uni a bit hard to say the least. But from now on I will be posting on here every few days like I did before, even if it is about utter crap and quite short.

So what shall we talk about today? I really badly want my hair cut! I'm just a bit scared to go have it done! I don't want to go to my usual hairdresser as she is ages away, and the only reason I went to her anyway is because work was close by, now she is a million years away and to be rather blunt I cannot be bothered to travel that far. So what's the problem why can't I just walk into any hairdressers? Because, where I live, is known for being rather expensive and I really don't want to have to spend a fortune to have my hair chopped. I've decided how I want it cut now I think. I was growing it but as usual, when I grow it it just gets to a point where it starts looking disgusting so I think I'm going to have a bob again. Maybe something like this:



I do love how Fearne is working this. Lets hope that I find a cheap enough but also good enough hairdressers fairly soon because I really feel like a change! So much so that I'm looking at piercings and tattoos. Getting a tattoo is obviously far too outrageous for me due to my horrible fear of needles but piercings I can put up with. I did have my belly button pierced twice and survived so anything else should be a walk in the park. So I was thinking maybe a little nose piercing. I think just a diamond in my nose would look quite pretty. So now to find somewhere to get pierced that isn't a tattoo parlour with big hairy men. Hmmm. It's definitely time for a bit of change in my life, even if it does just start with the hair and nose.

Kindle!

I really need to work on posting more while I'm busy but it was my first week back to uni so I guess it's allowed! I have a kindle! yay! My lovely boyfriend bought it for me along with a gorgeous pink case with a light on it. The idea was to put all my uni books on it so i don't need to carry much to uni but that bubble was burst when we discovered the 2 biggest fattest books that I need aren't available on the kindle! Oh well! It's still gorgeous and reduces my "real" book collection by a lot and will help me to save money especially next year when I need books then as well. Also is quite helpful considering my flat is fairly small and now i can gain some space by chucking a few crappy old books out that I can now get on my kindle. I do love the smell of a new book and the feeling a book brings me, but at the same time, I feel that the plus side is much weighter than the minus. If anyone is a fan of reading and buys a lot of books they really need to consider buying one of these, and as for uni students, particularly english lit or creative writing, it is absolutely amazing. Go go, buy buy!!
