I’m a student, get me out of here
Hello my lovely and probably non-existent readers. As I write this, I am currently looking at a count down to my last hand in for my final year of this hell hole of a university and I can tell you it’s exactly 84 days, 15 hours and 3 minutes to go.
It’s been a wild 3 years for me, sort of. I’ve made a lot of friends and some enemies, I’ve drank a lot of alcohol and I’ve made a few questionable life choices, but it wouldn’t be uni without that infamous ‘student life’.
I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to the moment I drop in that last essay… because work stress, student living and being stuck in one place has completely stumped me creatively. Yep. I cannot think of a single thing to write about.
Actually, that’s not true. I have loads of great ideas, but every time I try and open up a blank post, it comes out in a rather pathetic few paragraphs. Hardly groundbreaking stuff. And whilst I’m dreaming of Bali, India, Croatia, Switzerland, ANYWHERE that’s not the UK, none of this is translating into the inspirational words I want to have up on my little slice of the internet.
It’s not just my blog that’s suffering – I haven’t written a song in like, 2 months. Which is not ideal, because my degree is actually in songwriting. (I know what you’re thinking, “How can you have any essays to do when you study songwriting” and I’d answer you but I’m too busy analysing Madonna’s album Like A Prayer through a marxist feminist lens and coming up with marketing plans for fake musicians).
Anyway, I digress. My point is that I tried to juggle a job, internship AND university work and couldn’t manage it, so I don’t know why I thought running a blog (harder than it looks, okay??), having a job, trying to exercise myself into looking Karlie Kloss, and writing 8,000 words on techniques in event management would be a cake walk. Spoiler alert, I’m about to have a stress-induced break down.
So here I am, and I’ve discovered i’m one of those people who needs to live slowly and kind of do one thing at a time, which is why you won’t be hearing much from me until June 1st. I’m still going to post, don’t you worry, but it’ll be less frequently (and they’ll be mostly pictures as I revert into a child like state of communication). I’m all about being 100% happy with posts and making sure it’s top quality, and what i’ve been churning out of my brain lately (aka the left overs after my total 19,000 word count over 5 essays) is not that quality. And this little corner of my life deserves more than that.
Anyway, I hope ya’ll can forgive me, and I’ll see you on the flip side!
