Okay yes I’m aware we’re 5 days into June (Also HOW is it already June?! The year just started this is too fast I don’t like it…), but wow the end of May was particularly intense for me and blogging was incredibly difficult…. But hey It’s summer and I’m happy and I’m ready to get back to blogging… for real this time.
I know that life is a rollercoaster in general, but wooow May has been the most intense rollercoaster of 2017 so far for me… I had exams, stress, friend and family issues, got hit pretty hard with sadness but now I’m back and feeling stronger than ever and that’s what matters more than anything else.
I learnt a couple of very important things this month. Firstly, this month made me more appreciative of my family than I ever have before. I know that your parents are supposed to be there for you and offer unconditional love and whatnot, but this month my parents have been my rock and have rallied by me more than I could have ever asked for. Sometimes things hit us more than we thought they would, but having people support you and be there no matter what, even if it’s just to cry to, really makes a massive difference.
I also learnt this month that I’m so much stronger than I thought I was. Living at Uni, away from home in my own little space of the world, it’s very easy when I’m feeling particularly down to just crawl into my bubble and never leave. However, this month, I had my moment of sadness, but eventually I recovered and when things got tough, I got tougher. Things happen in life, and sometimes they’re things that you couldn’t have stopped (those are the ones that hurt the most) but with the right people, you can eventually have the strength to move on and come out stronger than you were before.
This month, on top of all my personal stuff I happened to have exams… which sucked (I ranted about them quite a bit, check out them here and here) but they’re over and I’m officially done with my first year of University! It’s…. weird… I mean, I’m still sat in my Uni dorm typing this so it doesn’t quite feel like I’m done with the year yet. However, I have no more lessons, coursework, or exams, at least for the next 4 months, so I’m excited to focus on my blog, and friends, and fun and me. I have some very exciting stuff coming up in the next few months, including a couple of reviews (already got the products and testing), some fitness stuff, and probably quite a few editions of late night rambling… I have no idea where this summer is going to take me, but I can’t wait to find out.
Hope you guys all had a good May! Feel free to leave your highs and lows in the comments!
Lots of love,
