Even the most independent of us all feel homesick sometimes – it’s completely natural! Especially in the first few months of university, when everything is new and unfamiliar, and you haven’t quite gotten into the routine of your new life, feeling homesick is normal, and I promise you that almost everyone feels homesick at some point, they just may not show it. So today I’m going to go through my top tips that I’ve learnt over the years and have gathered from uni friends for getting over homesickness so that all you need to worry about is making the absolute most out of your uni years.
Starting uni is a big deal, and the start of uni (freshers week) is a massive experience! Eeven though my fresher’s week was definitely not what people would consider normal *cough covid cough* (yes that was meant to be both ironic and a bad joke), I have helped with fresher’s events and still vaguely know what’s going on. Today’s post is going to be a bit chunky – fair warning – but I’ve split it up into a section of best steps to breaking the ‘transition to uni’ thing into manageable chunks, and then some tips for making the most out of freshers week. Right, enough dillydallying there’s a lot to talk about.
Hey everyone – today I’m talking about things you can do when you don’t really feel like doing anything. When you’re coming off a very busy period, or maybe are overdue some relaxation, you might feel quite slothy, and have no motivation to do anything. Well today, I’m sharing some fun things you can try, when you don’t feel like doing anything.
Hi everyone! This week I’m sharing some fun suggestions for embracing the art of relaxation, inspired by my little holiday on the beach where I’ve been reading, enjoying a few cocktails and maybe getting sunburnt. I hope you enjoy it!
Hi everyone – today I’m going to be talking about something I’m battling myself … burnout! Today’s post will be a little discussion of how it feels to have burnout, some of the symptoms, and most importantly, some tips for how you can battle it!
Today I’m doing a collab with the lovely Third Culture Kid, where we’ll be sharing our experience and tips of adjusting to other countries. Both of us have definitely had some experience with moving overseas, and adjusting to another country can be quite a process so we thought we’d share that whole journey with you, as well as some tips that we picked up along the way. Personally, I’ll be sharing my experience of adjusting to life in England.
Today I thought I’d take off the bauble-tinted glasses around Christmas and talk about something a little more … whatever the opposite of merry is? Christmas can truly be a magical time of year, filled with so many sparkly, joyous things and activities, but what I think we often tend to forget is part of what makes these moments so special is that we spend them with our loved ones. However, what are you meant to do during a festive period that is all about doing things with your close friends and family when you’re alone for Christmas? That’s what we’re going to chat about in this blog post!
I suddenly realised that I haven’t talked about any sort of Christmas party/celebration ideas or tips. While I could always talk about Christmas organisation, I think that kind of takes the jingle out of a Christmas carol when you’re talking about lists and planning… sooo a fun way to get around that I thought would be to talk about how you could host your own fun Christmas event. So I can chat about something organisational, and you readers can also get some inspiration if you’re still at a loss for a fun way to host people for Christmas this year. One of the events my Disney society hosted was Christmas cosyfest, and it was such a fun event that I thought it would be fun to share the details in case you decide to host one yourself. Not only is it really easy to do, but it’s also a super relaxed and fun Christmas event, so for those looking for event inspiration … here is How to Host a Christmas Cosyfest.
I know that it can be a bit more of a challenge to get into the holiday spirit for some people. Not everyone is like me, and as soon as it even gets close to December, I’m already jingly and ready to cover everything in tinsel and chuck merriness around like confetti. But, sometimes it’s not just like slipping on a pair of comfy shoes, you need to mentally prepare, gear up and get things rolling before you can throw yourself into the festivities, so if any of you are still hovering on the border between Christmas and the rest of the boring year, I hope that this blog post helps!
Being an adult supposedly means doing annoying things like taxes and not having time to do what you love, but that isn’t usually the case. Being an adult, at least how I define it, is being able to look after yourself. It means you can live independently without worrying that things will fall to pieces and doing that isn’t too much hard work. Doing that just involves learning a few skills that can help you be an adult while still maintaining all the fun-loving things that you did when you didn’t have to worry about things like budgets and dishes. Today I share 10 adulting tips – skills that are essential to helping you cope in the big scary world!
