Starting University & Lecture Tips

Hey Lovelies!

Hope I find you well on this Wednesday afternoon! I have successfully managed to complete my undergraduate degree and I am about to embark on my masters and for anyone starting uni this month I thought I would out together some tips and tricks for bossing uni 😀

Items

First thing is first, you will need to get a couple bits together to make sure you are prepared.

  1. A diary – preferably a pretty one so you are more likely to use it :3
  2. Notebooks – get all the notebooks, its amazing how quickly you can get through them
  3. Sticky notes – if you jot down anything that really needs to be done and stick it to your wall, the visual prompt will be a life saver!
  4. Highlighters – does what it says on the tin really doesn’t it! But it just makes a notes page or lecture slide look so much more visually appealing to your eyeballs O.o
  5. Book stickies – you can throw these onto any pages in textbooks which explain something really well, so you can easily find it again. HANDY!
  6. Pens and pencils

 

For the lecture

Turning up is a good start >.< once you got that down, you are golden 😉

Its good to be slightly prepared for the lecture by printing out the lecture beforehand. This can be done in any format you like but personally I put 6 slides to a page then annotated and highlighted around and on the slides during the lecture.

Its also really helpful to record the lecture on your phone for example, so if you miss something the lecturer says then later on you can just play it back. You will need to ask the lecturers’ permission to do this though, as you know it is their voice and information.

After the lecture 

For me personally I can only really process information once I have written it down, and I also much prefer revising from my own handwriting. So after lectures I would like to write it up and do any of the reading they suggest and write down anything useful I read.  I have my own little way of doing this using colour coding so it makes finding vital information easier. I explain this a bit in my video if you are interested 🙂

Thats it! Now onto the next one, or well …. lets be real here, the pub 😉 If you would like me to do a post on how a revise, just let me know 😀

I have made a video if you would prefer to listen to me ramble 🙂

Thanks!

We Moved to York!

Hey!

So me and my partner have moved from Wales to England and now live in York 😀 We have been here a few weeks now and have just about everything in it’s place now, and have managed to have a look around and find some lovely places to eat and drink. Might do a little review on a couples places we have found if that sounds good?

Anyway here are a couple snaps of York and and the surrounding area I’ve taken so far 😀

Cosmeston Lakes

Hey Stranger!

I have got carried away thinking about major decisions like masters and getting a car xD so please excuse my radio silence. However, rather excitingly I finally got around to getting a camera 😀 I have been thinking about it for months and I am supper happy I talked myself into getting it.

In the spirit of getting it I decided to take a stroll around Cosmeston Lakes, which is only down the road from me on a nice sunny day to try it out. I thought i’d show you the results 🙂

Exploring the Vale

Hello lovelies!

Yesterday I set off for an adventure around the Vale of Glamorgan and it was so refreshing. I picked up some leaflets at the Penarth Pavilion about walks around the Vale, called the Vale trail (loving that name doe!) 😀 So from the wealth of choices I decided on one which was easy to get to with public transport (should really get a car one of these days).

It was Vale trail 3 starting at Llantwit Major. I could not have picked a better day for it, I got all them summer vibes. Here are some pictures from my adventure:

I just want to encourage people to get out there and see this beautiful world, recharge them batteries and connect to the earth for a wee while 🙂 I can guarantee you will feel better for it. Despite the fact this walk had a ridiculously muddy section and I nearly fell ass over tit, its still all part of the fun!

Take care!

The Pill

Hey!

So getting straight into it, I firstly wanted to chat about the pill. Why I am on it, whats good about it, whats bad about it and how it affects me.

Why?

When I was growing up I had a hard time with my periods, they are brutal! I remember being sick in the school car park, feeling so faint, and being sent home on a few occasions just because of how my period affected me. So I was put on the pill from about 15 (roughtly) to try and control my damn crazy body.

Did it help?

Simply, yes! I no longer dreaded that time of the month and I felt in control of my body again 🙂 happy days! As a bonus, when I got older and began to explore my sexuality I was already covered on the pregnancy front.

Any side effects?

Luckily for me I didn’t see any of the bad side effects I was told about such as weight gain. On the other hand, I didn’t see the side effect I was kinda hoping for at the time which was larger breasts (damnnn itttt!! 😉 better luck next time) !

Further down the line

I am now 23 and I am still on the pill, although I have changed from the one I was originally prescribed. It works well for me and my lifestyle which is great news 🙂

Any questions, please ask 🙂

Let’s Have a Chat

Hello Lovelies,

I had this thought, about creating a section dedicated to chatting about things which I haven’t seen geting spoken about much on peoples blogs. I’m thinking periods, mental health, coping strategies, and anything else!

I aim to get quite personal in this section and you are welcome to comment and share your experiences. I hope this helps!
