I GOT A FIRST // What’s Next For Me?

For those of you who don’t know, today is my 23rd birthday – *cries* because I’m officially in my early 20s (21 & 22 are clearly late teens!!). So, I thought I’d take a moment to give you a little life update on what’s been happening!

Angus and I are spending today FINALLY finishing our flat! We moved in just over 2 weeks ago but we didn’t have any furniture until last Monday and then Angus went on holiday that evening!! It’s safe to say it’s been a hectic couple of weeks, and I am definitely sick of living out of boxes. To some, it might sound a little strange that I am spending my birthday unpacking and building Ikea furniture, but honestly, the best birthday present I could have right now is a finished flat! So here comes my little life update.


In other news, I got a FIRST in my degree! I am so so proud of myself for not only getting through my course, but for absolutely SMASHING it as well! To think that 4 years ago, I started Uni and left after 6 weeks because I wasn’t well enough to carry on and now, I’m graduating with a First Class Honours! (You can find my 3rd year highlights here!)

Not only that, but, I am starting a PGCE course in September! I’m going to be working towards my dream of becoming an English teacher and I can’t wait! Over the past few years it’s been so hit and miss as to whether I’d actually be able to pursue this career due to the PGCE course being so intense, but luckily, I’ve managed to find a part time course in York! And of course, you know what that means…

New flat, new office & new course = NEW STATIONARY!!

It’s weird to say this, but I actually kind of miss studying… since finishing my degree, I’ve definitely enjoyed not being stressed 24/7 about assignments but I’ve missed having that focus and drive to achieve something. Is that just me?

Anyway, that’s it from me today. I’m going to go off and enjoy my birthday building furniture and unpacking with Angus!

I hope you all enjoyed this little life update post, and if you did please subscribe to my blog or follow me on my social media if you want to see more!

Until next time,
