Expectation vs. Reality (Medic Series)

Image
Everyone said it wouldn't be any harder. Everyone said university isn’t a step up but a step across. Don’t believe them. Don’t take their word for it. They lie.

At least for me.

University was the hardest thing I've ever done. I love living alone, I loved being independent, I love being able to do what I wanted, when I wanted to do it, but making new friends isn't easy for me. I find it hard to make friends let alone become confident enough in that friendship to let them in, to open up and be me. Being in a flat with no friends is hard. This article really struck a cord with me because I can relate on so many levels.

I've always been relatively mature – even if I do say so myself – so I didn't mind suddenly having to manage finances. That wasn't the hard part. Time managing is my strong point. I love being organised have a schedule and making plans, way too far in advance than is necessary.

I think it's very course dependent but I struggled. I knew medicine…

Puppy Love and Photoshoot Bloopers! - Week Diary

Image
This past week I went home for a little trip to see family in Yorkshire.

I filmed a few clips this week and made a short vlog! Click here to watch and see below. I also took lots of photos and I've shared a brief daily summary and some of my favourites below :)

Monday
I started the week off at my dad's house and we went bowling as it had started to rain.



Tuesday
It was such a nice day and dad and I wanted to get out of the house. We decided last minute to go to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I used to go all the time as a child but haven't been in years so I don't really remember it. Sorry for the picture overload, I took so many pictures that I love, this was the best I could do to narrow it down. To see the full album, click here

I have so many posts that I am so excited about and I have them all written but because there are so many I have them scheduled until mid-July! Considering I still will have birthday posts, holiday posts and some concerts posts that haven't happened yet... I really won't those posts to go up as soon as possible after the event so lucky for you guys, I have made the decision to post all 5 week days this week. How exciting! 2 extra bonus posts!

I'm so excited for the posts this week:

Don't Stay at Pure Highbury! (Review) 🚧

Image
An open letter to all considering staying at Pure Highbury, Pure Student Living!

To whom it may concern,

I am writing to let you know how disappointed I am in my stay here at Pure Highbury.

I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to stay here for a year. It was a last minute decision hence the unfortunate high price, but it was close to the tube station so easy access to all major central London locations, high level of security to make me feel safe and especially the added bonus of a gym, small but fully functional and never busy. Having stayed at a hall last year with no rec room, I was very happy that there was a large M floor purely for socialising.

But the problems are unbelievable.

After starting the year with no cutlery, dirty pans and getting all my food stolen - still an ongoing battle but not as severe - it only got worse.

The temperature in my room didn't work so that had to be fixed, now it is off completely and still far too hot. I have to leave my window open throu…
