This year might not be the typically set out for the academic year, and how you are tested might be slightly different than previous years. However, I still wanted to gather some tips that can help you revise for an exam. Or a class test or even just an online quiz.

Graphic saying "5 things to do for halloween during lockdown" with three little kids dressed as ghosts underneath

Most things this year haven't quite gone to plan, and with Halloween just about less than a week away, it seems that too isn't going to be the same as all the other years.

However, I personally don't want to think I've missed out on another thing this year, so that's why I've racked my brain to come up with five ways that you can do this Halloween even if you are confined to your home.


5 THINGS TO DO FOR HALLOWEEN WHILE IN LOCKDOWN

ZOOM PARTY

As much as by now I'm sure we are all sick of online lectures, for the most part, video and voice calling our friends (and family) is the only way we are able to socialise. And with even more places locking down as this pandemic continues, the forecast for any parties happening this Halloween doesn't seem bright. So I suggest instead zoom parties. Honestly, for me I would probably prefer it a little more sat in my room in my PJs, but for those of you who want to drink and hang out with friends maybe this would be a decent enough substitute for those crowded and loud dance floors.

Movie Evenings

Despite us all being stuck to staying in our rooms, we can still continue the traditions of watching scary (or as scary as Disney can go for me) movies on Halloween. Either find a movie on Netflix and get everyone joined in on Netflix Party, or get everyone on over to Discord where you can watch a few movies together.

Do It For The Gram

We might not be able to get dressed up and go out, but this year we can still get dressed up and hang out in our rooms. I know I don't like to waste a good makeup moment, so maybe if you get dressed up this Halloween why not give yourself a photoshoot, and share those looks with your friends over on Instagram. If you do post anything I'd love to be tagged in them!

Bake Some Treats (or tricks)

Going way back to one of my first few years of blogging I created a post on baking some ghost biscuits, baking is always a fun activity to do when (or even when your not) confided to your own home. From cookies to cakes, you can bake anything and make it Halloween theme. If you need some ideas Pinterest is a great place to find some Halloween treat inspiration. I have a board set up for them if you want some quick inspiration.

Take A Break

I for one know I'm terrible at actually taking a break, and as much as I try to a take a breather my mind doesn't really shut off. But with the stresses that this year has brought to everyone, maybe using Halloween as an excuse to pause for a second and let yourselves breathe wouldn't be a bad thing. Give yourself a treat! 


Writing this I realised I miss the days of trick'n'treating and that now I don't really do much for Halloween. But what do you normally do for Halloween? And what plans do you have for this year?

Ecological health, at present, is a factor of great importance for humanity. It is the health of the future that we must all take care of. Imagine a world where the environment is so polluted that you can't even breathe. Even the skin cannot be exposed to the sun because the radiation effects are unimaginable. It's sad to think that one day we could come to this. It is annoying to realize that today many people do not care about protecting the environment. Our health and hygiene depend, to a greater extent, on everything that surrounds us. By taking care of nature we take care of ourselves, without realizing it. Ecological health and environment should be the premise of a new lifestyle for all.

graphic saying "10 helpful chrome extensions for students"

If you didn't realise by now I am a sucker for tips'n'tricks to make my life easier, especially during this time of studying online. So with that, I have found myself adding quite a few new chrome extensions to the web browser to try and ease the stress that third year is bringing to my door. Since I'm sure many of you also use Chrome I thought it might be of some help to make a post about my favourites of these chrome extensions.

university room tour

After skipping this series for a year since I was on my placement year, I'm back for another addition to my University Room Tours.


This year I was trying to decorate my room more since I have to spend pretty much 24/7 inside these four walls, however, my set up isn't all too different from first year and second year. Even so, I thought it was about time I uploaded this post, and possible have your opinions and ideas on how I can make my room feel more like my room than just another university dorm room.


Once again this years post is more of a picture post rather than a more wordy post, but I hope you liked seeing a sneak peek into my dorm room.

What's your favourite spot in your university room? What have you done to make it feel more homely this year?
