Reading/Blogging and University

So I have just finished my first term or semester at university and it has definitely been an experience and one of firsts. But the weird thing was I did expect to have tons of free time. I thought that the twenty or so books that I bought with me would be read in the three months I was there and that my blog would maintain the state that it was before university, posting five or six posts a week and talking about books. But..

I was wrong...

I was completely and totally wrong. I found that university was harder than expected. It is not just about the learning new material about a subject that you love it was so much more. It was about making new friends and meeting new people and learning to be independent. I finally learnt how to do my own washing! But this and learning meant that I was getting a really long reading list and I had about three essays, this meant that I was reading loads so after a long day of reading the last thing that I wanted to do was pick up a book. Instead I would watch films that I had not seen and watch a lot of amazon prime including watching a lot of the TV series Skins because that TV show is really good. Although I make university sound like the worse thing in the world, it is not all bad. I did manage to read 10 books at university with the three essays due in and that I did have some free time in the start. Also I did manage to blog... OK it was for a week but it was still an attempt at blogging at university. 

So I guess this is yet another life update post. I guess that I can also say that I am off for a month due to Christmas so I am going to see how many blog posts I can get before I go to university. 

More blog posts soon...

See you soon,

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
