So i’m well aware that my last post was a pretty morbid one......i’m hoping this one may be a little more cheerful! 
It’s friday afternoon, i’ve been naughty today, I skived my last lecture, I really couldn’t be bothered, and I justified it to myself by saying i’ll work on my essay - almost 2 hours later, i’m still sat here putting any work off. Truth is, i’m just shattered and I cba. Though I vow I will get some work done before the nights through!
It’s been an OK week this week. Nothing too exciting. I now have all 4 essay titles which need to be done and completed sometime before Christmas. How exciting! Ha. I have started two of them, but one of them i’ve completely lost all interest in know when something seems so simple, then you overthink things and make it complicated = a very confused self? Yeah? Well that’s me. What I thought was a simple essay, now feels like rocket science. I believe I have 3 weeks to get my backside in order. 
Started taking the gym more seriously this week. Think my hard work is paying off, i’m feeling better about myself. Having said that, no matter how much exercise I do, I still can’t get used to the 3 floor climb up to my flat in halls..........I still always feel like i’m dying by the time I get to the top. I’ve started swimming this week’s pretty cool, nice and relaxing, not to mention there is some pretty good conversation going on at the pool. Fell over getting out of the pool first time though, didn’t bank on the floor being that slippy, wooops! Hope nobody saw me, hahahahahaha. Nevermind, life went on!!!
I’m planning on going to the cinema tomorrow. I’m thinking maybe Eclispe (again!)..........or Paranormal Activity 2, though i’m not too enthusiastic because the first was a little shite........or Life as we know it, which looks pretty cool. I’ll also add that i’m dyyyying for the next Saw to come out. Yeeeha!
Halloween next week, woopee! I LOVE Halloween. I don’t do anything remotely exciting, ha, but this yeah, i’m going back to Newcastle for Halloween, I plan on stuffing my face with pizza, crisps, and sweeeties (it is Halloween afterall!) whilst watching good old Hocus Pocus. I’m really looking forward to carving a few pumpkins’s gonna be awesome!!!

I apologise it's not the most cheerful post!

Soooo it’s been an awful long time I last posted a blog. Well, the truth is, I just haven’t felt like writing, i’ve had a hard time settling into uni unfortunately. Firstly, I didn’t click with my flatmates, they are all party animals, which I have no problem with, providing they don’t wake me up at 4 every morning, but they do. The majority act like children, which is appalling, we are supposed to be university students!
Secondly, i’ve been feeling quite homesick. I didn’t realise how much i’d miss my Gran, Dad, Mam and dog until I moved away. Thankfully, it seems to be getting easier though. 
I can honestly say Freshers week was like hell for me. It was boring, it was awful so I went home. I actually had more fun at home. I know going home isn’t the best thing to do but tbh, I just couldn’t hack the boredem. I was hoping to meet people like me but unfortunately not.
Thankfully, now work has actually started, i’m starting to settle in, now I actually have something to do. Woah, that makes me sound like a geek doesn’t it! I do get sad sometimes, knowing that I haven’t made any proper friends yet, but then I remind myself it doesn’t matter, i’m here for my degree, friends come and go. Having said that, it’s only 3 weeks in, maybe i’ll meet someone eventually, but for now, i’m content enough to get on with my work and visit family on the weekend.
Lectures! I never realised how boring they could be. I always imagined myself to be a thoroughly interested student, who paid attention and absorbed as much as I could. Yeah, right, truth is, lectures are possibly one of the most boring things on earth - sometimes I have to literally stop myself from drifting off to sleep. 
Wow, it sounds like all I have to do is moan right? Well, when your at uni, living with people  you don’t click with, and you haven’t made any friends yet, it’s kinda hard to be happy and cheerful all the time. So I apologise for my morbidness. Hopefully next time I blog, i’ll actually have something interesting to say.......or at least cheerful! Ha, believe me, i’d of loved to have written a piece on how amazing Freshers was, how wonderful the people are and how exciting actual uni is like, but i’d be lying. Ha!
Ciao for now folks! :)
