The Past 5 Months

This year has gone by so quickly it’s unreal. It really doesn’t feel like May. The past 5 months have been crazy, I seem to have been drifting from one assessment to the next without really stopping to breathe. So I thought I would do a little roundup as to where I have been, what I have been up to and where I’d like t be heading.

I am on the last few weeks of my first year of the HNC/D course. It has been crazy, but I have loved every second and I am really loving the course. When I have finished for the year I am thinking of doing either a YouTube video to get my YouTube channel started again or a blog post on how my first year went.

My blog has taken a back seat, which I didn’t want to happen but I knew that eventually my course would be done for the year. So I have been blogging less, trying to post once maybe twice a week depending on how many posts I have in my drafts. So in the summer my blog should be back to a more regular schedule and posts! On the topic of a more up together blog I have been really uninspired to write recently. I have a few posts in my drafts that I have posted, but other than those I haven’t been sure what kind of posts to write. I don’t want to just keep posting reviews, I find them the easiest to have a back up of as I like to write them and they are all the same set up i.e. their description, how they performed for me and what I think of the product.

Don’t get me wrong I love reading and writing reviews. But I find that is all I have been doing as I haven’t had loads of spare time with all the deadlines I have had over the past few months, as well as up coming deadlines. But I don’t know where I want to take my blog in order to have different content. Over the last week or so I have made time for my blog and written different types of blog posts to switch it up a little. So who knows where this little slice online will go over the summer.


Other than coursework and working a part time job, I have also been focusing on myself. This is something I have never really taken time to do. I have always been in relationships or just focussing on something, anything other than myself. I am quite good at putting off things. Which isn’t always a good thing.

So by giving time for myself and dealing with issues I have been trying to ignore, I have found my anxiety has subsided a little. Don’t get me wrong I still have my bad days, but they are getting further and further apart. I have finally dealt with things and I feel like I am really starting to be much more comfortable and relaxed in my own skin.

As for where I am going, I am just seeing where life takes me. I sometimes feel like I should have more, experienced more and be further in life than I am by comparing myself to others. But then I have to remind myself that actually everyone is on their own journey. Nothing is as it seems on social media. To compare myself is silly, no two people lead the same life and so I just need to keep on going in my lane.

Anyway, that’s all for my ramblings. Just thought I would write a little round up of my year so far. Until next time!

    I do really relate to your post in regards to the writers block. I love doing book reviews etc, but I need to adapt my ideas further instead of sticking to that one thing🙂 I love your post, thankyou for making it!😊

    School kind of edged out my blog too! Although I never managed to get up a post, unless I was on holidays haha. I’ve been sort of uninspired as well – or I guess more so stuck on what to write. I’m happy to hear you are taking time for yourself though, it’s so important and something most people completely avoid (as you said). Hope the rest of your course goes well! xx

      It’s so difficult balancing everything sometimes! Taking more time fir yourself is so important, and I’m so bad at dealing with things when I probably should! Thank you so much, I’m sure I’ll do an update post as how it all went!xx
