A Step Back in Time

Hello my lovelies!

Firstly I should apologise for my intermittent postings, this is partly due to me not feeling the desire to write but also because of final assignments and end of year exams stressing me out to the max. I'm currently best friends with caffeine, sugar and junk food as I reach the final stages of this year and I'm pretty sure my bed has moulded to the shape of myself and multiple text books, but I thought that it's about damn time I let you guys know what's happening. 

My first year at the University of Chester is practically over and it's left me thinking just how far I've come in the past year. I've had so many ups and downs and made so many new friends - some who've just passed through my life and some who've stuck around and who I hope will continue to do so - and there's just so many moments that have given me a reason to smile. I'm so incredibly proud of everything I've done so far and can't wait to move on to my second year with all of the other wonderful people in my year. I thought I'd share a few of my favourite memories from the year with you guys to give you a bit of an insight in to my uni experience so far.

Social!
Fresher's Week! 
Wow, it feels like just last month I moved away from home and began to take care of myself independently. The madness of fresher's is still very fresh in my mind! During my first week my housemates and I were very social, as was the entire street and there were many nights out with everybody which was of course incredibly fun and mental. But my favourite memories from that week are the house take-out that we got and the freshers fairs (there was free food, of course that's gonna be something I remember!) because it was in those moments that I first met and made some really good friends.

Orchestral Society - I LOVE YOU GUYS
Sunday Rehearsals
I absolutely adore everyone in the Orchestral Society, they're like my family now! And this is thanks to not only our bonding sessions on drunken socials but mostly the rehearsals. 3 hours of hilarity and musical magic each week and yes, I do remember being late for one rehearsal because I'd been out the night before hence didn't actually wake up until about 5pm... 2 hours in to rehearsal! It's so lovely having something to look forward to each week that isn't based around drinking or my subject but rather a hobby that I truly enjoy. I'm just glad that they're all as crazy as me!

Sarah, Hannah & Myself
Never ending chats 
These have dwindled as the year's progressed but I have fond memories of sitting in my housemate Hannah's room chatting away about nothing in particular, munching on take-out and watching films or tv shows. Whether it's just been the two of us or several members of the household, those chats helped to build a cherished friendship. Wow.. I sound soppy!

Seminar silliness!
All I'm going to say is Frank's Seminars. Those who are in them will remember the hilarity of those sessions. 

There are so many more things that I could tell you about; nights out, nights in, lectures, weekly shopping trips... If you'd like to hear more then like, +1, share, comment and let me know! I'd be happy to share my experience with you all. 

With the lovely Pip
 If there's a topic you'd like to hear about for any of my series then feel free to let me know by getting in touch,
I absolutely love hearing from you guys! All of your emails and messages make me smile<3

I love you all huge amounts and I'd like to thank all of you who've been reading my random ramblings for these past few months. I look forward to writing so many more!
