Life Lately #2

Celebrating handing in my Major Project with my closest friends

It's hard to believe that this is my first ever post of 2014, and I apologise for being M.I.A for the last few months, I've been swamped with uni work and, if I'm honest, I lost all motivation to blog in general. It's taken me a couple of weeks to get round to writing this post because I wasn't sure whether I wanted to come back to my blog at all, I'm in that difficult place we all get to once in a while where I'm not really sure what I want to do after university and where my life is heading, it's quite a scary thought but I've decided to try and get back to blogging a few times a week because it's something I enjoy, and something I can actually do just for me. So here's a little run down of what I've been up to since September!

1) My final year of university! I cannot believe how fast the last two years have gone, and now I only have about 3-4 more months left before I hand in my dissertation and uni is officially over! It's terrifying not knowing what I will be doing in a few months time - I've always been a person who meticulously plans everything to the last detail - but hopefully all the hard work will pay off. Journalism is a very difficult industry to break into, so I'm under no illusions about walking into the perfect job straight away (as lovely as that would be) but I love to write, and it's all I've wanted to do.
2) Final year project For the last four months I've been working on my final year project - which you can view here - all about elderly people and malnutrition. It was really interesting, but the most stressful thing I've done to date. While I was putting it together I was a bit upset that it hadn't turned out perfectly, but looking back now it's handed in I'm really proud about what I was able to achieve by myself.
3) Dissertation This has got be one of the most horrifying words ever! I've just started writing my first draft so I'm currently bogged down reading some very serious books and journals - another reason I can't wait to get back to blogging to have a fun break!
4) Work, work, work As I mentioned in one of my older blog posts, I've been working at a cookshop for the past five months. It's something I really enjoy - as you've probably noticed from recipe posts on this blog I love to bake! - and it's only one day a week so perfect to balance with uni work.

So hopefully this is me back to blogging more full time now! I can't wait to get out and start finding lots of beauty gems to share with you all.
