12 months

The Countdown to graduation

As a student, you think it will last forever or just don’t think about the end result until your very last year. Well, 2017 is my last year and the last year of my education degree as I know thus far as I don’t know to take a PGCE in the next two years up in Scotland to train as a teacher.

Though this is my last year and it is scary to think about. Though it is, on the other hand, exciting since my adult life is just about to begin and if you know me you’ll know that I like to be organised, too organised at times but hopefully maybe my organisation skills will be using these first steps of going through the last process of being a student.

So this will be a monthly thing because I actually do not know what day I graduate but I know it is 12 months from now because this year my university graduation is in early November time.

Welcome to countdown to graduation. Let’s hope some progress will be done for November.

Loads of Love,



Day 20 – Dream Career

Unsure if you were around for my previous blog posts but once upon a time ago (more like a year ago,) I have done what I want to do after university career wise but plans change and your career path will change.

I am at university studying graphic design and multimedia and within that, you could work in a studio, freelance or like me wanting to go into a company either as a graphic designer in publication and publishing, a graphic designer itself or maybe within marketing and advertising. As a graphic designer, you are communicating what the company or client wants you too.

Though as a career, I would like to work for a wedding, baby, stationary industry or something that I have not yet discovered.

Though my absolute dream is to work for a wedding magazine and have a stationary brand with my own name which is an amazing thought to think of because I would like a career that has routine, stability and lastly a career that will let me peruse my personal dreams though I cannot do my personal dreams without a career.

Day 16 – My personal goals

Everyone has thoughts personal goals that everyone wants to reach too some maybe a long way to achieve those goals and others might be easier. So these are my personal goals set in place they may carry on till the new year or stopped when completed.

  1. To do my practical driving test and pass plus

I will be passing my practical before the years out that is my challenge for this year for the rest of 2017.

  1. To lose weight

I bragged on about this more than enough times including future posts in November.

  1. To get a 2:1 in my university degree

University is coming towards the end and I will be graduating next year (autumn 2018) which is exciting but I am not spending all that money to get a grade under 2:2 so this year I will be working towards a 2:1 and higher.

  1. To be the best art society vice president

I’m a Vice President for the Art Society for my university which is beyond amazing but I plan to be more than amazing.

  1. To be more confident in the kitchen

I’m a bad chef when it comes to the kitchen. I can bake, I can cook but I am not confident and I do take things literally for example “fill the kettle to the top” I filled it to the top instead of to the max line. Oops.

Day 15 – Dream Guy

When I was old enough, I asked if I could have a man who is just like prince Eric from the Disney’s little mermaid who is (determined, mature, selfless, romantic, fun-loving, polite, kind and dreamy) along with Prince Adam’s personality as well (trustworthy, protective, daring and gentle) to then added qualities from that original thought. When I gotten into my adolescent stages I wanted someone who does not mind watching anime, he needed to be geeky and play video games with me, who takes the mickey out of me after creating a fail in the kitchen and not be angry. Though most importantly he needed to be swift as the coursing river, with all the strength of the raging fire…

Though most importantly he needed to be swift as the coursing river, with all the strength of the raging fire… Nah, you’re just reading Make a Man Out of You there from Mulan but in all seriousness, he needed to love Harry Potter and Disney as much as I do.

He needed to have a very adult side to him but to balance it out he needed to have a geeky/childlike side to him as well.  Oh! He also needed to love cuddles and kisses because I am that girl that is very affectionate towards people especially if they are my partner.

Writing this, I think I found him, that dream guy, that I prayed about and that I wanted. The only downside is that he’s up North and I’m down south but that won’t be for long.

Day 14 – My WishList

Now, I have expensive taste but I know I cannot touch the expensive stuff but if money was not an option and I had an unlimited money for a day this what I would purchase altogether.

  1. 15 inch 2016 MacBook
  2. A Graceship handbag – Hong Kong
  3. A yellow Vaxhall Corsa (the reason why yellow because I want to see the kids hit each other driving past them, ya know yellow punch)
  4. A five-bedroom house with an attic, basement, and a garden. The basement so I can kick my partner in there with his office and set up, including Warhammer bits. Then the garden for me personally because I love to garden, and I want a shed so it can be my studio.
  5. Other houses so I can decorate and rent out to also build a house portfolio.
  6. Unlimited life supply of ice cream, cookie mixes, and chocolate because they’re important.

Then I am sorted! Hahaha!

Day 13 – 5 years back

5 years ago, I would have been 18.

That’s scary to think that I would have quit my florist job at this point as a junior florist and in college again to study art and design for higher education to go into university the following year.

I had a dream to study illustration and graphic design because in truth they collide with each other well. Also since most illustrators go into graphic design anyway.  I wanted to study at Liverpool John Moores, Hertfordshire University and UCLAN.

Now thinking of these universities I don’t think I would be happy at these universities since they’re all too noisy and too busy though more on that soon enough but Hertfordshire would have been for my ex which is very weird to think of being there now that we have spilt and gone our separate ways hence I think that was why I was scared of remain up in Glasgow with my current partner for a little over 2 years now just if we break up.

Plus the hunger games catching fire came about which is one of my favourite book series. Then I would have gotten my provisional driving which is soon to be pink by the end this year I hope since I did my theory at the beginning of the year.

Day 12 – My Day in Bullets

If your nosy like me I love to see everyone’s day, especially vlogs or Instastory’s/snapchats because I am just that nosey and I like to know what’s going on really but in this point of view I’ll be doing it from a Saturday at my partner’s house which is actually currently where I am at this very moment when your reading this. Just coming more towards nightfall, so I did this whilst I took a mental note on what I am doing.

  • Wake up 8am
  • Cuddles and kisses with said partner
  • Shower
  • Breakfast
  • Clean the flat up a bit
  • Go for a walk
  • Whilst on a walk see his mammy
  • Go back to the flat
  • Make lunch to then eat lunch
  • Rotate washing on the maiden
  • Iron a couple of mine and his clothing
  • Do a little of university work ready for autumn
  • Plan bits for Isle of Uist
  • Make dinner
  • Watch a movies/TV Series
  • Get ready for bed
  • Bedtime

I am basic but that’s the only thing that I can think of to highlight in this blog post.

Till next time!

Day 11 – Favourite blogs

Originally when I started blogging I blogged on this other site that I created for long distances relationship blog to start being part of their community to then giving tips and tricks to the readers but there are others outside of the long-distance relationship.

Zero’s Blog – I love her blog, its beauty mixed with punk she had just recently followed her favourite band Green Day which I did enjoy reading. She’s actually from Scotland which is so much cooler.

Blog | Instagram account

The Bummy LDR Couple – they hardly update their blog anymore (so maybe this might kick them up a bum a little to do so!) though I follow their Instagram account which I think Michi updates it more than Cruz but otherwise their sweet little cinnamon buns that are just too cute to eat!

Blog | Instagram account

Fuller Figure Fuller Bust – Now when I say this woman rocks, this woman rocks. She’s a model and a plus size model that started to give me confidence about my body even though its declining a little since starting on my weight loss but she’s always giving me a confidence with working out as well. So, I really needing to thank her for it.

Blog | Instagram account

Sprinkle of Glitter – one of the first blogs a I have read was from this lovely lady and got me intrigued about blogging about fashion, beauty and lifestyle then I found her really easy to read and watch when it came to her YouTube channel.

Blog | Instagram account

Becca Roae/Grace F Victory – I put these together because I could not decide on who do I love most between these two. Their fashion is very contrasting from each other Becca is very dainty floral patterns whereas Grace is very bold patterns when they were clothes.

Grace’s: Blog | Instagram account

I have however, found myself reading another blog who is Mia from Beautiful, Creative, Inspiring – Life. She recently commented on my previous blog posts though I have been enjoying her content.

Day 10 – Favourite Memory

I have a lot of favourite memories but in all honesty, there is more bad than good but even the good is heavy on the scale. There are some memories that have been linked to music but this memory is linked to a small little sparrow.

My great granddad tom has always been an outdoorsy person he loved the garden, he cherished his nature walks and he adored woodland creatures. He always wanted to be out and about especially with his grandchildren. Both of my grandparents loved being out and about in their garden which I think where I got it from.

This time we were gardening behind his chapel (yes, we had a chapel) because the grass was overgrown and need to be tended to. We had found a little sparrow nest with a sparrow inside with a broken wing, so my granddad being my granddad he held the little sparrow and gave it to me.

Though I think this image that you see here, and these are my favourite images of all times.

Day 9 – My Pet Peeves

I don’t like to think of myself as a person with a load of pet peeves but there is one or two which really does my heading, and I cannot stand it to a point where I just get mad needing to get out to have a breath or until they stop doing that thing.

Arrogance and prejudice, combined these ones together because they come under the same umbrella. I don’t agree with people who stereotype a person without knowing that individual and arrogance when a person is more important than another. I get so heated up about it where I must go out of the room to breathe.

Then its eating with your mouth open, I dislike it, I don’t like the noise and I don’t like the mannerism of it either, it’s like nope. Please don’t do it near me. I don’t remember a time where it picked up but I understand if you have a blocked nose and cannot breathe to then needing to use your mouth but even then I sit far away in hoping I won’t hear them.

So I urge you not to do them around me or else I will loose my rag.
