blog, blogger, pinterest, blog image, blogging goals, life, lifestyle,

Hello friends!

So January is well on its way and I have finally come up with my blogging goals for 2018! I have been keeping a little list of things that I might want to have as a goal for 2018 and I’ve now narrowed it down to 5! So without futher a do lets crack on!

The Mythical Views!

My first goal is a common one among bloggers and that is to gain more views, and generally more clicks to my blog. Currently my views are still very low and as I’m going into my last term at university I know I won’t be putting in as much time to my blog as I would like. For this reason my goal is still low but by the end of 2018 I hope to be recieving around 100 daily views to my blog! Lets see how that goes!

December Favourites!

Hi friends!

So finally have made it through to 2018! I hope you all had a fabulous New Year and are excited for what 2018 has in store! I’m both nervous and excited for my 2018 as it will see me graduating and stepping out into the wide world!

For now though I have my December Favourites to share with you, so here are some things I was loving in the month of December!

First thing I was loving was the British TV show Plebs which is currently on Netflix. I’d seen it advertised on tv a while ago but never watched and thought I would give it a go. Well as usual, I fell in love with it and binge watched it, some episodes multiple times!

If you don’t know it, I would likened it to the Inbetweeners but set in Ancient Rome! It stars Tom Rosenthal, Ryan Sampson and Noel Fry and it is hilarious! If you are a loose end with what to watch, give it a go!

What I Did On Christmas Eve & Other Stories

A couple of days have passed since the big day and I truly hope you all had a magical time. However, as I said myself on Christmas day, it is also worth remembering that it is okay not to be okay. Just because it’s Christmas doesn’t mean we are expected to be bouncing off the walls constantly! It’s also a time for reflection, a time to remember and a time to give thanks for what we have, whatever that may be.

What I Didn’t Think I’d Be Doing at 22

work, study, 22, dance, clubs, sleep,

Hello friends!

So recently I’ve been reflecting on certain habits, activities and such that I have been doing as a twenty-two-year-oldย woman. Some of them you probably wouldn’t associate with young, carefree woman! Not that I don’t secretly enjoy some of them!

ย What’s Normal Anyway?!

So in this post, I thought I would share with you some things I’ve been getting up to that perhaps your average 22-year-old might not be. I wanted to write this post to highlight that it’s okay to be yourself, and do what makes you happy! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

So in the words of Taylor Swift, I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22!

Life Update: Back in Briz

Hello friends!

I know, I know, it’s been awhile. Yeah, about that…

So basically four weeks ago I embarked on my last year at uni (SCARY OR WHAT?!) and that is why I have been unfortunately neglecting my blog a little. However, I am finally settling back into a warped kind of schedule and am desperate to get back to blogging!

What am I up too?

So for this first post back, I thought I would just update you on my recent activities and the like! As you may or may not know I am at uni and as this is my last year I am currently planning my dissertation! It’s an incredibly daunting concept and one that has kept me crazy busy from day one as well as trying to keep up with my other modules!

Alongside my dissertation I am taking three modules, Children’s Literature, Gothic Literature and Fiction in Britain since 1970 which I am really enjoying too! They are pretty diverse and certainly keep me on my toes.

I am also now looking forward to life after uni, which is both a scary and exciting concept. I am undecided what I want to do, whether that be a postgraduate course or something like a graduate scheme. However, I am determined to embrace whatever challenges come my way in whatever I decide to do!

I went to a poetry evening a couple of weeks ago and it reignited a lost love of expression through words. Last year we spent so much time studying classic poetry on my Romanticism module that I forgot that poetry can be modern. I laughed and almost cried that evening and it really inspired me to get back into putting my pain down on paper. I am looking forward to trying this out over the next few months and perhaps I will let you guys read some!

Blogging Plans…

I am currently compiling a list of blog posts I want to write and am trying to dedicate time to do this within my hectic schedule! There’s so much I want this blog to be and I am excited to (try!) and get it there!

In the meantime, please comment on any topics you would like me to discuss, and I thoroughly welcome constructive criticism about my blog in general!

Speak soon!
