A lot has happened in the past two weeks that still hasn’t sunk in, so I thought I’d post a little life update. 

The first thing to happen was finding out that for the first time in my life I need glasses! Tadaa – I know, I am basically a long haired version of Edna Mode.


This is a pretty big change for me and is definitely taking some getting used to. The last time I went for an eye test (which admittedly was a VERY long time ago) I was told I had perfect vision so I never thought I’d need glasses. I noticed a month or so ago that I was struggling to read the lecture board and my eyes constantly felt strained.

I got my eyes checked at a local opticians and had an awful experience so I decided to go to Specsavers instead and they were life savers. I was in for a test and out with a pair of glasses that same day! I’m short sighted so I only need to wear them for driving, lectures or looking at anything far away.

I also received my grades for semester 1 this week and am very happy with my results. I managed to get an A, B+, B and a C+. I am over the moon with the A’s and B’s and at my uni A’s = 1st and B’s = 2:1. I am a little disappointed with the C+ as it was for a research report that I spent the most amount of time on.

However, as I study psychology, which is a science, the work is really difficult and the marking is often tough and specific. I tried my best and will take the feedback I received forward to hopefully improve my grades for second semester. I am a little nervous as I have more exams this term and I am definitely more inclined to essays and reports. I did get a B+ for the last one though so maybe I am getting better at the exam malarky!

The final thing that happened this week was next year’s committee elections for my society! I am currently musical director but decided to run for chair person this time. I am so excited to say that I got elected! Alex also ran for director and got elected too. We have always wanted to direct and musically direct together but I think it’s good we have each gotten to do it solo. I’m really looking forward to being on committee together though!

Here’s to the future!

  1. I’ve literally just found your blog and I absolutely love it! You should be proud of those grades – I’m in my first year of uni studying English lit and I have little to no clue what’s going on most of the time 😂
