Blogging about Not Blogging

London 'Revision' Life

When I started blogging, I had no idea on where I’d end up, what I would enjoy sharing or talking about, what would and wouldn’t work as well as, most importantly, if I would even stick at it. Well, almost two years on I am still here chatting away, often to myself but that doesn’t matter. I like to write, share good old life tips and of course, rant on about things I love *uhmm, One Direction, apologies*. But guess what, life is constantly in the way right now, and by life, I literally mean a bottomless pile of second year revision, exams, coursework and essays. It honestly never ends. I’ve come very much accustomed to life inside my tiny halls room, staring at the murky grey blind (because the sun is usually blinding), working until my eyes burn from my laptop glare, watching daytime telly (Holly and Phil on This Morning, are comedy gold) and actually looking forward to my daily co-op trip for lunch… They have student discount, don’t judge, their spicy chicken pasta is the one.

I’m stuck in the uni-is-slowly-making-me-mad-and-I-need-to-either-cry-and-have-a-mental-breakdown-or-eat-McDonald’s-mozzarella-dippers-ASAP kind of rut. I miss blogging and it annoys me that I can’t find time in my ridiculous revision timetable to even write just an ickle bit, for my own personal benefit and overall well-being. I turn 20 on Wednesday (27th, feel free to send me a birthday card… *detect sarcasm*) and oh my, if someone said to me you’ll be spending your 20th alone, revising and more-than-likely stressing, I would have been like, er no, uni is fun, obviously I will be partying like most 20-something-year-olds, nope, not me – Hollyoaks, a mac n’ cheese ready meal and a hot chocolate sounds more like it. Anyway, enough whining Chan.

I still want to post a ton of ’20 themed’ posts if I can squeeze them in, but we shall see, I’m putting no more pressure on fragile me. However, I think, I might start something a bit new on here, seen as the vibe here tends to be ‘confessional-desperate-slightly depressed-student’, why not go for a slight diary kind of feel for a bit? #LifeOfChan begins…. *drum roll please* …today! I don’t have time to plan out ‘useful’ posts (well, I like to think that they are), so I am just going to share days of my life with you occasionally especially whilst my (horrendous) exams are happening throughout May. Good plan? I like to think so.

Let me know what you think, and sign up to my mailing list because you know, that will cheer me up!
