Summer In The City

Summer In The City

It is mad to think we are now a good chunk of the way through July and a good chunk of the way through blinkin’ 2018. Every day seems to speed past me in the blink of an eye at the moment and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. Glasgow has been blessed with the same heatwave the rest of the UK is experiencing and whilst my chub rub might be trying to slow me down, it isn’t succeeding.

I decided to stay in Glasgow over the summer as I just knew returning to the Scottish Borders would make me a bit unhappy. It just isn’t what I want and whilst I have the flat here and my friends it just seems ridiculous to do that. I obviously miss my parents at tonne but thanks to my life situation at the moment I’m able to pop back every couple of weeks for a few days and they’ve been up to Glasgow a little bit as well.

6 Podcasts I Can’t Stop Listening To

6 Podcasts I Can’t Stop Listening To

Podcasts appear to be taking the digital world by a storm right now. I saw a tweet somewhere that ‘let’s start a podcast together’ is this generation’s equivalent to the 00s ‘let’s start a band’ and OMG it’s true. I may have uttered these words to my flatmate but since neither of us have done anything about it since, I don’t think it’ll be happening anytime soon.

But I’m not complaining about the influx of podcasts because I love them. Listening to a soundtrack of episodes from my favourite shows is what is getting me through long days in front of my laptop screen or when I’m rushing through household chores. There is something for everyone in the podcast world as there so. many. podcasts. out there and I’m here to share some of my faves with you.

Life Catch Up & My Summer Plans

Life Catch Up & My Summer Plans

I wanted the title of this post to have a little more pi-zazz but ‘life catch up & my summer plans’ are all I can come up with. This post is coming to you literally hot off the press, as in I’ve just written it up. It is 12.50 on Friday 18th May and I have finally finished my third year of university.

And, deep breath, because it has shattered me. I have never felt more lost and confused and terrified and upset all at the same time as I have in the space of the last few weeks and I am so thankful to be wrapping up my ring binder one final time and saying a sweet goodbye to academia for three months.

Because your girl needs it.

How To Stay Sane When Taking University Exams

How To Stay Sane When Taking University Exams

It is the season for students all over the country to walk around and tell everyone how stressed they are. Or how much revision they’ve done but still no nothing. Or how they can’t wait for their first post-exam pint. Happy May everyone!

This will my third year of taking university exams and it actually a year since I last sat one. I’m nervous, obviously, but after six years of revising and studying and sitting exams I have my pre-exam prep down to a tee. I thought I’d share my tips and tricks for exam season in case anyone is need of a little nudge.

May Goals

May Goals

It has been a little while since I wrote about monthly goals in such a candid manner on The Monday Project but as May is seeing the end of another year of my studies it feels like the right time to iron things out for summer and tie up loose ends.

I am travelling to Amsterdam and Stockholm at the end of the month which is incredibly exciting and I have three exams to sit between now and then. My friend is also getting married and I want to keep up with all things The Monday Project.
