Tea Drinking, Cocktails & Food!

Leave a Comment
As it is now Autumn/Winter time (which I dislike very much) this means snuggling up in wooly jumpers, thick scarves and eating copious amount of food! Which is certainly what I've done this week!
So this week I joined the tea drinking society! Yes I know this sounds really peculiar but to be honest it was the only society I definitely wanted to join. Also my best friend, Megan recently became president of this society (she was a member last year) and she persuaded me to join. On the night that it started I felt really awkward shuffling in whilst they were in the middle of a quiz about tea (I had work before!) But I joined a team and made myself some tea and it was really fun! I was slightly nervous about going and I was even considering backing out but I knew I had to get out of my comfort zone and beat those negative thoughts going around in my head. Everyone was really lovely and I actually met a lot of new people :) I also brought along some chocolate cake and soon realised that cake brings everyone together :D I can't wait to go back next week, which will be on my birthday!
Pub Grub! 
Wednesday was a pretty short day as I only had one lecture and another introduction presentation. Even though we were in uni for about 3 hours, it still tired us out haha! We went to a pub for some lunch, which was sooo delicious! This may be a regular Wednesday thing now.
Vodka Rev & Summer in the city
Last night I had a great start to weekend with Megan as we went to go battle for tickets for Summer in the City 2014! We managed to get some earlybird tickets before they sold out with Megan's amazing ticket buying skills! :D Afterwards we went to celebrate by going to Vodka Revolution and using our student cards which we purchased for £2 at the student lock-in. We definitely had a feast, I was so full from our margherita pizza (only £1) and felt a bit tipsy after having 2 for 1 cocktails!
We had a such a fun time and we plan on going back very soon as we're only half way through our coupon book! 
Anyway that was my week so far and I plan to update more regularly as I have lots of things coming up. 
Thanks for reading ^.^ xx

Facing my fears...kind of

Me & Lynette
This week I officially started university! I have been soooooooo stressed about this and it has been really hard to talk about this to anyone as most people find it difficult to understand. I've kind of kept myself to myself and bottled up all my worries (which is wrong, I know) 
I've explained how worried I am to some people like my closest friends and my parents but I don't think they really understand how terrible this actually makes me feel.
I usually get the same response such as 'it's normal to be nervous' & 'you'll be fine' or as my mum said 'are we going to get the same performance as last time'
I mean the morning before my lectures I kept waking up early and having heart palpitations and an upset stomach worrying about the day! I keep getting these dizzy spells too :S

I am seriously so thankful to have my friend Lynette who I met during the enrollment week, as it turns out we have the same classes together and she doesn't live to far from me :) she's crazy just like me and I can actually be myself around her! It's weird because it feels like I've know her for ages when it has been a week and a few days :D She was actually shocked when I told her I'm a shy person. I mean I am so thankful to have my friends who have helped me actually get out the house this year but it's nice to have someone who is similar to you in a new situation!  it's always nice to have someone pull faces next to you when you feel stressed in a crowded lecture theatre :D 
Another thing is I've kind of faced my fear of actually being in a crowded room! I really hate being in crowded areas as I usually feel a bit paranoid and constantly worry I'll have a panic attack and people noticing. When I'm sat at the back this usually puts my anxiety at ease, so I've been keeping to the back recently. But I would do anything to just overcome this. I've been really tired & emotional recently after returning to education and starting the week with 3 hours worth of lectures and 2 hours of IT sessions in one day. But I'm trying to distract myself by blogging, keeping myself busy and music!

Thanks for reading! :) xx
