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.
April has been one of my busiest months to date! It has been a combination of holiday in the sunshine, celebrations, revision and just trying to stay on top of my shit. University classes subsided at the end of March giving way to the Easter weekend and then I subsequently jetted off to Ibiza for a week with my sister.
As lovely as my week in the sun was I didn’t take my laptop so I got next to no blogging or university revision done. When I landed and headed back in Glasgow I fully expected to be chasing my tail to make up for lost time – especially as I was losing my weekends to a trip home and a hen party in Newcastle.
It is safe to say I watch a lot of Netflix. I like to work with background noise so I often have Netflix purring away when I’m tapping on my keyboard or washing dishes. It is pretty much the soundtrack to my life. I’m aware that sharing this list of ‘recent’ conquests will highlight how much of a loser I am to you all but the things I’ll do for blog content I guess.
It is inspired by Charlotte’s post about everything she’s been reading recently as even for me there is a little more than usual on here. With Ibiza, the Easter holidays and increased general laziness this month I’ve managed to watch plenty of Netflix. You will find a whole host of things on here as my TV tastes are a bit scattered from dark and grisly murders to silly sitcoms to period dramas.
I spend a lot of time in my bedroom. I guess I never got out of my moody teenager phase where I sulked in my room for hours on end. Living in flatmates in an apartment with no living room means that my room is my only place to chill out whilst at home I prefer the muted tones of my bedroom to relax as I can be alone.
Having a peaceful bedroom is really important to me due to the amount of time I spend in there. I get stressed out and overwhelmed super easily so having a place to be by myself and feel content is literally what I need. Yorkshire Linen challenged me to think about what a ‘peaceful’ bedroom means to me and share a few tips in case you feel like you’re lacking in the peaceful department.
I first stumbled across blogging when a post by Hannah Gale cropped up on my Facebook feed back in autumn 2014 and her wonderfully witty yet poignant blog opened my eyes to a whole world online. One I fell promptly head over heels for. A space to express yourself online, develop and learn more skills and meet like-minded and wonderful people.
It took me a little while to start my own blog, mostly due to a lack of confidence, but I also found information on actually starting one that made sense with my limited tech knowledge hard to find. Google is a minefield and none of the articles that were coming up in my searches where making much sense to a total beginner like me.
