My Favourite Ways To Spend A Sunday

I bloody love a Sunday. A day where it feels totally acceptable to slob about all day in pyjamas and eat the best food and wake up late – but like I don’t do that on any day of the week, especially the pyjamas part.

But there is something special about a Sunday isn’t there? I love having one totally plan free every once in a while – a day where you can spend it doing anything you want. But as I’m coming to end of a very busy semester, cherishing my Sundays have been even more important.

I feel so drained by it all as I’ve been run off my feet all semester and I’m looking forward to a quiet few weeks celebrating the holidays, even if I will be squeezing a bit of work in. Sundays in Glasgow can also be lonely and quiet so I’ve found my perfect ways to spend a Sunday in the city when I have one going ..

Four Stationery Items That Help Me Lead A More Organised Life

I thrive off lists & plans & schedules & diaries. I can’t imagine organising something without first putting it in the diary, making a list of the things I need to do before it/for it/after it and making an in-depth schedule of what I’m going to do with my time.

It is a smidge borderline obsessive but trying to balance friends/family/university/The Monday Project/other projects can be a bit OTT at times so I rely on my paper based mechanisms to keep things looking snazzy and me not having a breakdown.

7 Tips For Staying On Top Of Your Sh*t At Uni

University can (is) very blinkin’ hard at times. It can be overwhelming and distressing and OTT. It can make you cry or want to tear your hair out or remain under a blanket watching Netflix for the rest of your existence. Coming to university and studying is one of the hardest things I’ve done and well, it doesn’t get any easier as the years go on despite you becoming more of an old hand at it.

Organisation is key to me being able to operate at uni as I’m always trying to do several things at once whilst also doing nothing at all, if that makes any sense? I’ve really been struggling in the last few weeks as deadlines have slowly filtered in and I’m panicking big time about everything.

What’s In My Bag | Uni Edition

This is my second blog titled What’s In My Bag | Uni Edition so I think we can give me a round of applause for creativity. Truth to be told, I wasn’t sure what else to call it. Maybe Uni 2? But that sounded even more lame. Anyway, it’s a look inside a student’s bag.

I’ve added a few new bits since last time I posted this. It’s a new academic year, I’m now in my third year of a four year degree, I have less class time but more work so obviously I had to switch things up.

I think coming to university, the most important think you need, without a single shred of doubt, is a back pack. You will be lugging around a lot at times and in Glasgow, it rains, so a tote bag is going to do you no good when carrying books and your laptops. You don’t want them to be soggy.

Two Recipes To Try From The Hungry Student

One of my favourite things about going back to university was having the opportunity to cook for myself. Becoming a master cook is something I strive towards and I love finding new recipes and cookbooks. The Hungry Student Cookbook was a Christmas present almost two years ago from one of my mum’s friends as I was half-way through my first year of university.

I used to be simply diabolical in the kitchen and I like to think I’m improving slightly. Even if you aren’t a student, I still really recommend this cookbook as it is really simple recipes with easy to follow instructions and affordable. I’m always on the hunt out for new affordable cookbooks so do let me know of your favourites in the comments.
