Blogmas #2 & #3: uni week #10


Way too many hashtags in that title. What a joke I am, I failed at Blogmas on day two - this is surely a new record for me? But in my defence I had the worst migraine yesterday. Sometimes I feel like whenever I say I'm going to do something, especially blogging related, my body is like 'Nope!' I definitely jinx myself haha. But anyway, it's been a while since I've done a uni update so here's the latest although not much has gone on.

Style Diary #13


This post is a little bit later than usual but this week has been busy! It's so nice being at home but the week has flown by far too quickly and I haven't done half the things I was going to do, oops. But to procrastinate further here's a post on everything I wore last week!

Uni Week 6: Relating To Royalty?


By the time you read this I will probably be at home! It's Reading Week and I've been so looking forward to it. I obviously am looking forward to seeing everyone again but I won't lie to you, I'm super psyched to see my Freddy-Boo-Dog again. He'll probably sulk and ignore me but I'll force him to be my friend. I can't wait and I know that secretly he'll be excited too even though he'll never admit it. 


November Goals



Well I'm pretty pleased with myself because I didn't do a bad job at all at keeping up with my October Goals. I didn't slack on the skincare front and I've definitely been focusing a bit more on myself by surrounding myself with the right people. The one thing I didn't do too well on was keeping a blog schedule but that's not surprising I plan to rectify that this month, here are my other November Goals...


Uni: Week 5


This week has been all werkwerkwerk. Kinda forgot about all the essays and presentations I'd have to be doing when I got here hahaha. I have Reading Week soon so I have a week to get as much stuff done as possible because I really don't fancy spending my week at home working because time spent with family and friends and Freddydog is something I'm definitely not going to compromise on! Alas I have decided to get ill again this weekend, which is just brill.

Uni: Week 4


This week has been about trying to get back into the swing of things after last week's little blip, hence the radio silence heree. I settled back into my uni house quicker than I thought I would after a week of home comforts but I'm really missing a decent kitchen/living area and a bath! Student houses are not the one.

Uni: Week 1, 2 & 3


I thought I'd start a new little series documenting life at university as a mature student juggling a chronic illness. I did a year of uni back when I was 18 and because I couldn't find much info other than 'It was the best experience ever!' and 'It's totally doable!' All very encouraging stuff but I needed to know about the practical things such as any help I might get or tips on how to keep up with the workload. I left uni after a year because I didn't like the course or university very much so didn't feel it was worth carrying on with as at the time my health started going a bit dodgy too. However this time round I'm doing something completely different at a different place that I absolutely love and of course I have new lungs too so I feel like this experience is going to be so much better! But again I couldn't find much info on doing uni with CF post transplant so maybe this will be my blog's niche hahaha. I'm no expert, I'm just learning as I go along, but hopefully someone may find these posts useful! I'm planning on doing these weekly but today I've had to cram three weeks into one but you'll see why.


October Goals


Hallo! I hope you've had a good week. Mine has been somewhat manic what with moving to Brighton and starting uni but I've loved it so far, I honestly don't know what I was worried about. The people have been lovely, the place is beautiful and my course is super interesting! I have the cutest walk through The Laines to uni and I feels lucky. The only downfall was a fly problem in my room when I got here but Mr Pest Man has sorted that so now all is well. I'll definitely do a room tour once I've made it a bit more homey!



Even though I think I'll be a little bit busy I still have some goals for October...

1. Sort my hair out! I mentioned before that after transplant due to a mix of medication and a big surgery my hair went a bit nuts and started falling out. Not majorly so compared to some but my hair was always so thick so it was a big deal for me! It's started to grow back which I'm so happy about but it just means that the length of my hair is all uneven - basically I look like I've had a bad extension job hahaha. So I need to get myself a decent haircut because right now I can't do anything with it but whack it up in a bun! I'm thinking a bob is the way to go but we shall see.

2. Keep up a skincare routine. I'm lucky that my skin is quite clear but this means I can be lazy with keeping a routine - however after sticking to one for the past month I've noticed such an improvement so I want to not let it slide! I'll do a post on the products I've been using as they're all really affordable and not tested on animals so winner winner chicken dinner (or not, I dunno.)

3. Focus more on me. I'm not saying I want to be totally selfish, I just don't want try and please everyone all the time. I started this already and it's so liberating! No more people owing me money and never getting it back, no more people borrowing my things and ruining them, no more letting people make me feel bad when I'm just being myself instead of who they want me to be. I've had to cut a few people out too but that's life, I don't want to spend it feeling drained all the time. Quite a weight off my shoulders really!

4. Try to keep up a blog schedule. I have so much to post including stuff from the summer but I haven't gotten round to it yet! It may not be *seasonal* but I much prefer just blogging about what I want to blog about, old school diary styley. Hopefully someone out there will like it haha!

Do you have any plans for October? Other than Halloween fun!


A New Adventure!



Tomorrow is my first day of uni 2.0...I originally started this blog back in 2011(!) to document life at university whilst living with cystic fibrosis. Ironically CF put an end to that venture and as well my heart just wasn't in it, but as you may knowso now I'm attempting it again doing a different course at a different uni. There's absolutely no way I'd have guessed how things would turn out back when I began this blog! This is like a new beginning in a way and if, like me, you like things being neat and rounded my first day at uni (tomorrow) is actually exactly two years to  As someone who likes matching socks, even numbers and a colour co-odinated wardrobe I find this weirdly satisfying! On that day I was sitting in a wheelchair on oxygen - if only I could go back in time and tell myself and everyone that everything would be ok! I'll still be blogging about life at uni with CF but obviously this will be a bit different to before as although I'm sure it'll be very challenging still I think there'll be fewer difficulties this time round. I'm so excited!

Of course I'm using as my student card pic 😂
