I'm Off To Uni!

For those that are following me on Twitter, my going to university won't be news, and this is a post which I've really been slow to write, having received my A Level results almost a month ago. However, it really feels like the past month has flown by! Although I did not get the results I would have hoped for and know I certainly could have done better, I have been accepted into university and will be studying Primary Education, moving into halls on the 13th of this month. Scary.

If you are subscribed to my YouTube channel, you may also have noticed that it has been around a month since I uploaded a video. This is due to having to deal with self-inflicted stress in the form of very last minute (and I must admit some overdue) forms in preparation for university. This was also in part why it took me a while to write this post, and it has really been a wakeup call for me - if stress from the run-up to uni has already compromised my YouTube channel, how will both that and this blog fare when I am studying? I am determined to continue with both my videos and blogging although perhaps a little less frequently; particularly my YouTube channel which is unlikely to be updated once a week as I originally intended. Life is of course the priority.

However, on a lighter note I will be back to posting videos as of next Tuesday, starting with a pre-university haul, and my move to London will hopefully mean I have more opportunities to attend blogger events and immerse myself in the blogging community (although it's certainly not central London). I also hope to share my experiences of my time there on this blog, and for the next few weeks especially, you can expect a number of university-related posts interspersed with my regular content. I have some posts in mind, for example a room tour when I move in and makeup/outfit posts during freshers week but would love to know - what posts and videos would you like to see?

  12. Congratulations on getting in to Uni! Good luck and you're going to have an amazing time. It's a really great experience. You said you've been worrying a bit about getting everything sorted, well firstly, don't, it's going to be fine, theres not much you NEED to do before you start, everything can be done once you've started it just makes it easier to do it first.
    I'm writing a series at the moment on Starting University, the first post is about things to do before you go which might be useful for you, you can read it here. The second one was on money and the third one was on things to pack. I've going to be posting a new one every Friday for the next few weeks if you'd like to keep up with them. Hope these might be useful for you, and hope you have a great time, and try not to stress or worry too much!

    1. Thankyou! I think I'm finally satisfied with it :)
      I'm going to be trying to have a mix of both videos and posts - for example my haul will be a video as it would be a long rambly post otherwise and my room tour would be a post with pictures as showing every bit of my room in a video would, once again, be a bit long and rambly :)
