If you’re new to my little space on the internet, first of all hello! But secondly, me talking about personal development is nothing new. I seem to spend my life somewhat absorbed by it; educating myself daily on what more I can do. Being *a bit* obsessed with personal development has brought me many a joke about how I’m “trying to fix the world with positive thoughts”, but to be honest, I don’t see how that’s a bad thing.
So first, a small life update.
If you’re in the UK you may have heard of the upcoming lecture strikes at universities over pension changes. Well, I am one of those students who will be affected as a result, so looks like I’m going to have some extra time on my hands over the coming weeks as most of my lectures/seminars are cancelled. One good thing about this is that I have been able to read. Like actually read books that aren’t for my degree.
I find I get a lot of my blog post inspiration when I’m reading. In fact some of my most favourite posts have been inspired by a book or author I’ve recently discovered. And today’s post is no different!
It’s weird to think I started this blog in my first year of university, and now, here I am, nearly half way through my final year. Where has the time gone. I feel like the girl I was when I started has grown in to a “proper” adult. But that’s the scary part. I’m set to graduate in July and that means the world of adult choices officially begin.
So my last post actually inspired me. I was shocked and appalled at myself for my utter reliance and, let’s call it, addiction to my phone. And as I said, I don’t think I’m alone in this situation.
Part of my nightly routine is snuggling into bed with a cup of tea to watch a film. Whereas previously it would be some crappy rom-com that 9/10 would put me to sleep. Recently, however, I have broadened my horizons to documentaries and I’m kind of hooked!
