This is a serious issue because university is basically your first taste of what it’s like to work to deadlines every single workday in adult life.

There are a wide variety of ways to ensure that you do keep up productivity levels during your time at university. Here are some of the possibilities that we recommend you do keep in mind.

I'm not feeling the most motivated to write this week, I think study abroad stress is coming to the forefront of my mind rather than the back. However, I do still want to share the photos from my January bullet journal set up since I enjoy designing it and hope it can bring some inspiration to your setups if the January blues are still weighing down on you.

If you are lucky enough to go on a placement year and truly experience the industry you are training for you may find it a shock to the system. Either because it's going into a working arena or because it's not what you pictured it to be. With this in mind, a lot of people tend to fall into teaching as a second choice career. But when we don't get on board with our subject and it's too late to change we may think about teaching because it's a sturdy career choice. So for those people that are feeling somewhat aimless in their degree is teaching a good choice? It is, and here are a couple of reasons why.

It has taken me quite a while and a couple of re-writes to finally get to this post, but I'm finally happy with what I'm posting.

As a young adult, one of the biggest battles we have is with money. Nobody teaches us how to manage it. Our parents might have given us a little bit of advice, or perhaps moaned, to put some of our paychecks into savings. But as a young adult, there’s nothing we want more than the freedom to spend our own money. So it leads to some bad mistakes during the teenage and early 20 years. But then we start to realise what the real world is about. We outgrow our own homes and are driven to save money to move out. Some of you will have saved that little bit longer in order to have a mortgage, some of you will have rented. Whatever route that’s taken, we all end up at the same junction. The junction where money is hard to control, and often unmanageable. When you get yourself into certain financial situations, it can be so hard to get out of them. So, we’re going to explore why it’s so hard to manage money, and hopefully give you some tips on how you can manage it!

a female sat on a bed facing the camera, holding the book Fangirl in front of her face

I've barely written about books the last couple of years, mainly because when trying to grow a blog they say to pick a niche and well book reviews don't seem to fit smoothly into whatever mine is. But I'm at the point where I'm just going to throw caution to the wind because reading is something I love and since I blog about my passions on here then I should really be mentioning books more often than I do.
