Life Update & A Level Results

Saturday, 2 September 2017

Hi everyone!! Just a quickie post from me today, thought I'd update you on goings on and new things and new beginnings happening at the moment!

So the first thing I should address is my A Level results!! You guys know how anxious I was about those damn results so fair to say it was a massive weight lifted off when I logged onto UCAS Track on the 17th August at 7:50am and saw I got my place at Manchester Metropoltian to study English and Creative Writing. The shock was even bigger when my mum and I went into school to collect my results and I far surpassed all expectations - I'm pretty happy with my A*AB I have to say. For someone who was predicted a C in Sociology after March mocks, getting an A* was possibly the biggest middle finger I could have given to my teachers!! I'm kidding - they were both super supportive and while they were both as surprised as I was, they were hugely congratulatory! Had some fun celebrations including a night out to a really shitty club in the town where I live and a lovely dinner with my grandparents and then another family event the day after. A really fun couple of days and still reeling from it to be honest!! Can't wait to head off on the 15th September to Manchester and begin life as an actual adult!! I might do a post about deferring my entry and why I chose not to, so if you're interested in that let me know. And any other A-Level and uni related content you'd like to see, just hit me up.

Another fun thing is that, like I mentioned in my last post, my family and I are currently on holiday in America, my older sister having spent two months out here in upstate New York lifeguarding for Camp America, so we took the opportunity to do a bit of travelling, seeing a different side to the USA than we saw two years ago. It's fair to say that I can see why some Americans never leave America, it's all so different you'd never need to go elsewhere! I'll have more posts about our trip coming up, but hopefully more organised than I recently have been - but I have said this before so we'll see.

not seeing this gal for two months was kind of a long time!
Another exciting thing is that I started a new blog!! Like I mentioned earlier, I'm off to study creative writing at uni and thought it might be time to start self-publishing some of my work - I used to publish it on Wattpad but honestly, it's not the easiest platform to use or grow on, so I've set up a separate blog to share some of my pieces on. It's called Last Mile Home and you can find it here if you're interested in my more creative and imaginative work. I would do it here but some of it is a little NSFW and just doesn't fit the overall lifestyle-y chatty vibe I've got going on on here, which I'm really enjoying at the moment. There's not much on there at the moment but I'm planning on uploading pieces I've already written every other day and when all of that is up I'll try and update twice a week or whenever I write something new!

This brings me onto my next point - I've decided that this academic year I'm really going to try and make a go of my blog and start trying to turn it into a bit more of a brand and a business, so I'm going to start sharing more on what is currently my makeup Instagram account. I feel like I only really show my followers over there one side of me but I have so many other passions like fitness and food and photography and clothes and bullet journalling, rather than just makeup, so I'm going to try and branch out a bit and start getting a bit of variety into my content. It might mean I lose interest and some followers but I just want to start being more myself and keeping my integrity a little more.

I think that's all I have to update you on for now! When I get back from holiday it'll be a mad rush to prepare for uni but I've got some exciting uni-based content to upload so I'll try my best to update regularly!
