My Reflection On My First Year At University.

So after finishing my first year at Uni I thought i’d write a post on it.

Not only is Uni one of the most if not the most nerve-racking life experiences I have gone through it has also been one of the best. I know i’m in first year so my view on uni might be slightly optimistic compared to the next 2 years. However, it hasn’t been easy I have had 4 presentations, 6 essays and 2 exams from very contrasting modules. Despite this I would reassure a lot of people that (first year anyway) has been less stressful than A levels – i’m not sure if thats because I am now more prepared or the work load is easier or even if my environment impacted this. 

 

Even when I was 15 I didn’t plan on doing A levels let alone Uni but I believe it has been one of the best decisions i’ve ever made. I understand the financial side can be daunting but I personally think it is quiet a smart scheme and you only pay if you reep the benefits of uni (which despite what some people say it will aid your career) – well thats how I see it anyway. 

I live away from home and surprisingly the biggest benefit for me this year has not necessarily been educational (so far) but, maturity – how to be independent and responsible, it really has helped me to grow up (and appreciate all my parents do for me). 

Of course it isn’t for everyone but only you will know if it is or not. If it is don’t let anything hold you back and do it, it will be the best decision you make and be some of the best years of your life. Even if you don’t get the grades, don’t get the course or accommodation you want (like me) don’t let it stop you after all, everything happens for a reason.

A Lemon Summer

Lemons may usually be thought of as bitter but, if you start incorporating lemon accents into your outfits this summer it will be anything but.

I am not one to follow trends however I am totally on this yellow/ lemon/ mustard hype. I am such a navy, white, black and grey type of guy so brightening up my wardrobe with this colour palette would have seemed daunting not so long ago. However i’ve seen so many people killing it lately with these bright colours. So, if you’re like me and want to switch up your wardrobe and fit in with the brighter season that is (hopefully) ahead of us then defo go and invest in something that is yellow whether it be a whole outfit or an accessory – I will leave some of my favs down below.

I’m in love with this Baywatch-T perfect for the summer, it is bright and refreshing, it adds a bit of cheeky to my classic wardrobe – I will definitely be taking this one on my travels.

Looking for a lunch spot in London?

Ok if you are ever in London and want a quick but chíc lunch you have to go to EatbyChloe in Covent Garden

It is a vegan fast food restaurant, the food was incredible and so were the vibes – especially the swing chairs. Very aesthetically pleasing

I loved everything we ordered, omg the ‘parmesan crust’ – Yum

I love you London and i’m definitely going to be back to ByChloe and try the meatball sub.

 

Thanks Sophie Bala for taking me to these fab places (and for the insta shots) xo
