Good Morning World!
We all love a good case of the giggles, the kind where your stomach starts to hurt, or the kind that makes you run to the toilet in fear, or the silent laughter you do while pulling a face for radio. The latter being my unconcious go-to. It’s a great love in all of us.
There is nothing I love more than the company of people who can make me laugh uncontrollably. If you can find someone who can make you forget about the boring parts of life and create a new happiness. Those are the people you want to spend time with, and those are the people you want to surround yourself with.
I have only recently realised this!
A couple of months ago a big thing happened between me and another individual, it was no ones faul, it just happened. As a result of this, I lost a lot of friends. I lost people who I used to call my best friends, people I use to spend my entire summer with; just gone. It made me realise the importance of real friendship and I how when you went to school you were friends with the people you saw everyday, for no other reason than that; you saw them everyday. My first semester at University served to be fine, but after this ‘incidence’ things just started to disolve. I noticed things I didn’t previosuly. I behaved the same before and after but it was them who ultimatly made the final decision.
The past weeks I have then only surrounded myself with the people who make me smile, the people I can truly be myself around. Going through something this difficult makes you realise who is actually there for you and who was just around for the ride. Because we both lost something, and the fact my ‘friends’ decided to make the choice for me to leave upset me, but now I know I’m better off.
The moral of this story is that laughter comes from being truly comfortable and happy, so only surround yourself with people who do that!

Good Morning World!
My first year at Univeristy has come to and end. This past Saturday I packed up my University dorm room and headed back home. It was heart breaking. Leaving a room to which I lived in for one of the most exciting years of my life. I cannot emphasise enough how fast this year has gone, or to think about how scary it will be that come September I will be a second year student.
It is true that all good things must come to an end… at least for now! I am acting like I’m leaving forever but in reality I will be back in couple of months. I just hate goodbyes.
On a serious note thought, Univeristy has taught me so much in only a year, and I have no doubt these lessons will continue. I have grown up and changed considerably since last September, it has aided not only my educational growth but my own personal growth. There are things that I have achieved this year that I never would’ve ordinarily thought would happen. Everything has been for the better.
I have come to make so many new friendships, some I know I will treasure throughout Univeristy and for many years to come. I have become part of a society which has helped me considerably with my confidence and allowed me to meet many more new people. I am surrounding myself with people who are like me and can accept me for the weird, bubbly person that I am.
I know, I know! It’s only first year! First year’s, yes do have a fair bit of work and exams, but for most Universities it counts for very little if any of their degree. I still have another couple of years before I finished this wonderful journey, but as this year has demonstrated it is approaching far sooner than I would’ve thought. It seems like less than 2 minutes have gone by when I was awkwardly standing in the halls on Freshers week trying to make friends with every face that walked by.
The end of the academic year is the time to reflect, not just our own personal development but on how others around us have shaped who we are. At the time I thought I hadn’t learnt much about myself, but the reality is looking back I have. Academically I know I could’ve done better, and there are many things that I know now that I will change going into my second year. Things like doing more outside reading, or writing up the lectures as soon as I get it, rather than just having a nap (we all do it). Saying that there are also things I am proud of this year, and hope will continue through my years, things like putting myself out there a little more and not being this shy awkward girl standing in the background.
First year was one of the best years of my life. This is one of the easiest statements I have ever had to say. I am looking forward to what the next couple of years have to offer. Bring on second year.
