University || First Year Round Up

Hellooo shimmers,
With first year of University firmly behind me and the second year quickly approaching, I thought now would be a good time to reflect.

I have had the most amazing year. I have met so many friends, learnt so much about myself, my subjects and those around me. It has made friendships stronger and some weaker. I could not have wished for a more perfect year.

I passed all my exams, so that was a huge relief and I am so happy and proud of myself because the work wasn't easy and I did work hard.

With first year under my belt I am really excited for second year. I will be moving into a flat with 3 other girls that I have become friends with over the last year, and I can't wait! (I will do a flat tour at some once I've moved in).

If you have read my university series post from last year then you may know that I am studying psychology, last year I also studied business and sociology which I thoroughly enjoyed too. This year I am hoping to study (as well as psychology) business, criminology and the basics of social work.

I didn't know what to expect last year starting university, and it wasn't quite how how I expected it, it wasn't better or worse than I had expected just different. So the same goes for this upcoming year, obviously I have a rough idea when it comes the the work but in terms of the flat, social life and other aspects of University I can't wait to see what this year brings.

University is such a huge learning experience not just in terms of academic but also yourself. People take gap years to find out more about themselves. I think going to university gave me the same chance at finding out about myself, how I would survive living on my own, and I'm still alive so I would say I did well!!

Congratulations to those who have graduated this summer, and to those who are about to begin, good luck and enjoy. I would love to hear about your University experieces and if you have any questions feel free to ask.

#getinspired Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014

Hellooo shimmers,
As you may, or not, know the 2014 Commonwealth games are currently taking place. For those of you who have never heard of them, it is basically like the Olympics but only for countries in the commonwealth (countries with Queen Elizabeth as there head of state) for example Scotland, England, Northern Ireland, Wales, Canada, Australia (71 countries in total). 
On the coverage of the games, they are constantly talking about inspiring people and wanting people to get involved in spots. I'm not the sportiest of people, however, I have to admit that I have been inspired. I really want to get healthier and so I have decided that cycling is the way to go. 
A last weekend my mum, dad and myself went cycling. We cycled from a little town/village called Callander to another little village called Strathyre ( and then back again!). It was around 18 miles along a country path, and I absolutely loved it. We don't always get great weather and so sometimes it can be hard to get out on the bikes but this summer we have been getting some really good weather.
Me, mum and dad on the bikes!
I think this was the only bit of flat road, so I couldn't sit down for a couple of days!!

Lovely Views from the bike
Also watching the games makes me want to go swimming! Our Scottish men and women have done really well in the pool and they make it look easy! Also the Scottish and English did amazingly in the gymnastics and they were amazing to watch. Greg Rutherford of England got gold in the the long jump so a big congrats to him too. I also decided that I could run the 100m faster than Bolt, turns out I can't... It looked so easy to run that fast it hardly looks like he is trying. 
A big shout out to Sarah Adlington, she won gold in the 78kg+ Judo. I met Sarah at University and she is such a lovely person and I am so pleased for her so a huge congrats to Sarah. Our Scottish team seems to be doing super at the moments and I wish them well for the rest of the games.

So I have to say the commonwealth games has definitely inspired me to get healthier and take up a sport, that I am actually really enjoying. #getinspired . Have any sporting events, or any other events, inspired you in any way?
