Elegant Ending to a Memorable First Year

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.

Why I Started Blogging | 2nd Blog-iversary

Good Morning World!

2017-19-07-15-16-49

Today, the 28th July 2017 marks the second birthday of my little blog, and the second anniversary of my very first post Good Morning World (which dare I say, is one of my more well written posts) . The day I decided to open up my life or my diary, if you will, to the world. The saying ‘time flies when you’re having fun’ certainly applies here, as despite having down days and unmotivated moments (like any other blogger) I really enjoy writing every post.

Blogging for me, has always been an outlet, a hobby, somewhere where I can talk about whatever pleases me most, not worrying about what others may thing of me. A place that is my little space on the big wide web. It wasn’t created for the purpose of getting followers or views, I mostly wrote it for myself, and I guess I still do. Most people after 2 years of blogging have a huge following and that never really was something I needed, and it was never something I worked towards. I posted my work and was done with it, no self-advertising, no nothing, just hoping that someone would stumble across my little blog and enjoy a good read. Which is slightly a bad thing, as many of my earlier posts, and some now do go unnoticed. But as of the last month I have started to warm to the idea of self-advertising, and the tooting of ones horn over on my twitter.

Despite working on this blog for two whole years now, there are still so many things that I struggle with in the big blogosphere. One of which being flat lays, I am so hopeless at creating them, I always end up having a shadow over my pictures or not having those ever so wonderful blogger props that everyone seems to be using now. This also co-insides with the whole picture thing in general, if you could only see how many posts I have written ready to publish that only need a picture. Its disappointing.

I guess the whole reason for creating this blog was so I could feel a little more important in this world, and in more ways than one it has kept me sane. I am a very introverted person, and mostly the idea of a big group of people does throw a spanner in the works, so when I stumbled upon the blogging world, I felt I slipped in well.

I am so thankful for this wonderful space I have created, and I will not stop doing what I love.

Happy Blogging,

Love Georgina xxx
