One of the most common reactions I’m faced with when I tell people that I study psychology, is ‘OMG, can you read minds’. Unfortunately for me, I cannot and nor is that was psychology is about!

Although if I could read minds I would be very interested to read my lecturers’ minds and try and find out what I got for my latest assignment I submitted....Slightly worried about it as being a academic-perfectionist I do always liked to aim for the top and achieve a 1st so whenever I submit a piece of work I’m not 100% happy with I do tend to stress until I get my fingers crossed!!

Additionally, I’m finding it a lot harder this year than in first year...I know it should go without saying that second year would be harder I just didn’t realise it would be THIS hard. I was lucky in my first year as not only did I do a psychology A level, I also did a Maths one too which helped me so much with the Statistics side of the course and the majority of work we covered in first year was almost a repeat for me, but unfortunately that’s where it ends, as everything we’ve covered this year is new, and at the moment it just feels like it’s one assignment after another and I’m really trying not to let it pile on top of me...


I'm half excited. Half petrified. So much to doooo, so little timeeee, I’ve got so much shopping I need to doooo as well as a festive Christmas Menu to plan, (which I must admit I do love doing!!). Going shopping this weekend though so hopefully I’ll be able to get the majority of it over and done with then :D I have a vague idea of what I want to get everyone so hopefully it all goes to plan :).

Anyways, that’s it for now :)

Cyaaa, xx

Until:  BREAKING DAWN!!!!!

Excitement doesn’t even begin to cover it  :D this is like my favourite book and can’t wait to see how they’ve adapted it to the film :D. I’ve just got the Open Day to get through tomorrow and then I’m FREEEEEEE to go and watch it :D

On a less exciting note, after I watch Breaking Dawn I then have to spend the rest of my weekend desperately trying to finish off one of my many assignments due next week  :( whoever said third year is the hardest obviously forgot just how many assignments/exams you actually have to get through in second year *cries in despair*.

Because of the amount of work I’ve had to do, these past couple of weeks have actually been pretty mundane :( ...we did have our Netball initiations though :D that definitely put a smile on my face as since I’m now in second year,  I got the pleasure of terrorising the very unlucky freshers :D (Don’t worry we didn’t do anything TOO bad to them....we are ladies after all :D).  And my team played a couple of matches...unfortunately we did lose them both *boo hoo* but we are getting better with each match we play so fingers crossed for our match next week :D.

Besides that the only other exciting thing I did was to go to this restaurant Cosmos...Seriously, if there is a heaven I imagine that it would pretty much resemble there...Cosmos literally has every single food you can imagine....chinese....indian...thai....sushi....roast etc :D and then my personal favourite..THE DESERT BAR :D needless to say I practically starved myself that day and successfully polished off about half the restaurant :D om nom nom.

But anyways, hopefully once I hand in this next assignment I will have much more exciting news to share with you all :) but for now it’s off back to work I know....bye bye for now xx
