It has been a while! My life has moved on so much since my last post and everything has happened so quickly. However, I thought a quick update on what I have been up to would put it all into perspective.

– I graduated with a first-class degree in Business Management. I would consider this to be the best part of my life because I had gone through so much, after failing the first year and moving to a different university. This was the best possible outcome for me, whilst being fully supported by family and friends.

– I went on holiday to Skiathos with my boyfriend Chris, which was amazing. I would highly recommend any ABBA/Mamma Mia fan to take a trip there. Not only is it beautiful but the food is great and there are so many exciting things to see and do.

– I moved to Bristol with Chris, which at first was daunting and scary. However, I now would not change it for the world. Bristol is such a vibrant city with so many things to offer. Living with Chris isn’t too bad either haha.

– I started a master’s course at the University of West England. Even though I had a rocky start to my university life, I knew I wanted to push myself to gain a master’s.

– I started a job in Mulberry. This job was purely to keep me occupied when I wasn’t in uni. See my post on ‘How to fill your time’ for more information about this.

– Celebrated my 22nd birthday, which was a standard, yet enjoyable birthday.

– I visited Reykjavik in Iceland for Chris’ 30th Birthday. This was an unforgettable experience. A truly magical experience! I will aim to write a post about Reykjavik because I have so many tips for anyone deciding to book a trip there.

– I graduated with a distinction in my MSc Marketing course. I had such a great time furthering my education, whilst meeting new friends.

– Celebrated my 23rd birthday, which again was a standard birthday.

Hopefully, you can see why I haven’t had the chance to blog much but I am so excited to get back into the swing of things. I am going to write a post on each update so I can really go into detail about both my undergraduate and postgraduate experiences. These posts will be uploaded weekly.

Hopefully, these blog posts will help you determine whether a degree is for you, along with some other bits and bobs.

Obviously, as I am no longer a student (do you think I can get away with my student discount for a few more weeks?) this blog is going to remain as ‘Thing They Never Told Us’ but with advice from other areas of growing up and life. For instance, securing a job, moving to a new city, buying a house, relationships, travelling, cooking and regrets, etc.
