πŸ‚ Enjoying Autumn in Plymouth πŸ‚

Hi everyone!

Since writing my last blog in September, it is now somehow November already?! The weather is getting colder, it is getting dark earlier, Halloween has been and Christmas is just around the corner! Third year is proving to be fairly busy and stressful at the moment, but at the weekends we’ve been making time to get out the house and enjoy ourselves! I told myself that, with it being my last year here in Plymouth, I would make the most of the beautiful location and get out to do lots of new things and explore new places! So far so good, so I thought I’d go through some of the things I’ve been getting up to.

Hi everyone!

I can’t believe that September and starting university again has already come around. I hope everyone had a great summer! I’ve just started my third year at Plymouth, and a few weeks ago I moved into a shared house with 6 other girls. It can sometimes be a bit tricky to adjust to being back in Plymouth at first, especially when you wake up in a completely new house with different people! It was so nice having a week or two to just adjust and settle into the house, so I thought I’d go through a few things we got up to!

πŸ’­ What I'd Tell My Pre-University Self πŸ’­

I was looking through my old photos and I found this panorama, taken of the Barbican on the day I moved to Plymouth. As September approaches, some of you will be reading this in the anticipation of moving to Plymouth and starting University soon. I remember that the weeks leading up to University were a big mix of nerves and excitement. Going on shopping trips to buy all the bits I needed, packing up all my stuff and seeing friends and family for the last time before moving away. It felt like a huge step, in an exciting way, but also in a quite daunting way.

🍦 Why Work Over the Summer? πŸ¦

🍦 Why Work Over the Summer? πŸ¦

Every summer when I’ve finished university and head home, I question whether I want to go back to work over the summer. I’ve worked in the same cafe every summer for 3 years, and I always go back because I have so much free time on my hands. Plus, when I’m at home for 3 months, I’m always in need of the money! After the initial reluctance to return to work, I always end up enjoying working with the team again and getting back into the swing of earning money. However, it sometimes becomes hard to find a balance between work and doing other things over the summer. I thought a lot of people would be considering working over the summer, so I thought I’d make a list of some things I’ve found with my past experience.

🌞 Saying Goodbye to Plymouth for the Summer! πŸŒž

🌞 Saying Goodbye to Plymouth for the Summer! πŸŒž

Last weekend I packed up all my stuff from second year, moved out of our house and came home for summer. A week has passed, and as nice as it is to be home again, I miss Plymouth already! Packing can be quite stressful, and I don’t help myself by leaving everything until the very last minute - I was literally still packing the morning that my mum arrived with the car. But it was all okay in the end!
