It's been a while since I did an instagram post, I find them a pain to put together, a bit over done and generally that they look a little 'lazy'. However, I am a complete instagram girl and not many days go by without a memory being captured via the social network. So I am resurrecting the instagram post, forgive me blogging world. 

It's been a fairly odd autumn so far. I have struggled on many accounts with an increasing work load, some pretty scary uni deadlines, balancing my personal life along side this, not having any down time and my sleep pattern going to shot. My want to socialise has hit an all time low and it has been over two weeks since I last had time with friends. I've also given up my need to be at the gym and I have turned into a bit of a hermit. My want to blog has gone down, a shame seeing as it something I love to do. 

Right now, my idea of bliss is to curl up by the fire with Bella dog and do a great deal of nothing. Maybe next month I will get a few days to do this, something that I have realised is that I am simply no good at relaxing. My mental to do list is always whirring and I can't sit and do nothing for very long at all.

 The need to have my own space is getting stronger and I have made the decision to start saving up to move out. However this is a minefield as I purely don't want to live on my own and I don't have close friends in a position to move out. Living with strangers doesn't seem like a good compromise either. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

I think I have a lot of big decisions to make, I just need to take the time to sit down and make them. For now though, I am going to go and get my hair cut- a traumatic event in itself.

  4. Sending massive love and luck your way. I completely know what you mean about just wanting to spend some time away from everyone though, I go through phases like that a lot and it's always really difficult to get out that cycle too.(: When the time comes to make all these big decisions then I'm sure you'll make the right choices. And all that cake - man, I'm jealous (: xx

    1. arg thank you jo- you are just the nicest person. I feel so bad for neglecting my friends but I just feel like the only person who I want to be around is myself! I hope I do- it's scary deciding things that could completely change your future. Stop by for cake any time :) xx

    1. Same, I get so mournful over my long hair, scarying myself silly with how much will be lopped off. Silly because my hairdresser never takes much off.
      just had a peruse of your blog and it's lovely :)

  6. Lovely pictures :). I know what you mean about being useless at relaxing... My mind goes into overdrive when I'm sat doing nothing. As for the moving out thing, I've lived with strangers before due to a lack of options at the time I needed to move- its really not that bad... I found I had quite a lot of space and we all lived our own separate lives without feeling the need to do everything together but we still all got on and one of the girls is now a really good friend of mine :). I hope it all works out for you whatever you end up doing :)

    1. Thank you for your lovely response :)
      I'm sure living with strangers is fine, after all theyre just people looking for someone to live with- no different to how I would be. I just find that I can be very reclusive, I wouldnt want to move out and STILL spend all my time in my bedroom.

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yours is really cute, I'm following now! Your photos are great and your dog is absolutely adorable. As for the stress of uni life, I've been there (very recently) and I know how miserable it can be! I'm sure you've heard it many times before, but all I can say is don't worry too much... give it some time and things will fall into place. Also, I've heard from friends that living with strangers isn't as bad as you'd think, as long as you get a chance to meet them and get to know them a little first!

    1. Hi Ellie, thank you for following!

      I'm hoping it will all fall into place, the thing is that I am happy with the way things are in general, but I think that I could do a little better. That means making these difficult decisions. I'm sure it will all play out nicely in the end.

  8. Thank you for the comment on my blog Poppy! You have the cutest pets, Bella dog is adorable aidjhajkd. I hope the haircut went well, they're always a bit stressful, I'm forever telling them I want the tiniest bit cut off! Uni deadlines are always stressful and I hope you work through it, totally get not wanting to be social sometimes it is too much effort! xxx
