Life Lately: A Catch Up

Its a Tuesday evening as I'm sat writing this, Bake Off is about to start and I'm absolutely shattered. I thought it was about time I did another little 'life lately' post and just have a bit of a catch up. 

Soooo, I guess I'll start with the fact I'm a month into my first year at uni now. I'm studying photography, and so far I'm enjoying it. Although it is a lot more work than I thought it was going to be. I am pretty worn out, I won't lie, as I have my part time job that I do on the side as well as uni, and its all getting a bit much. I suffer with derealisation, which I don't think I've ever spoken about on here, but it was getting quite bad recently and I've felt pretty spaced out, so I think its time to cut down on some of the work I'm doing!

In other news, other than the amount of work I have to do - I got a tattoo (lol that unintentionally rhymed). Its a basic little sunshine on my ankle, and I love it. It has a small meaning behind it, which is simply that it symbolises positivity. After going through a rough time with my mental health, I felt like I needed something to symbolise happiness and just to remind me that it always gets better.

To be honest, I've just been really busy with life and haven't had the chance to blog, which is so sad. I'm hoping that I'll be able to get back to it this week and start posting regularly again, because I miss writing on this lil space. Hopefully another post will be up Sunday, if not Wednesday - yay!

  1. Sticking to a blogging schedule can be difficult sometimes and it does become hard prioritising different tasks x

  4. Remember that you need your rest just as much as putting in all the work with your course or even your part time job. Best of luck girl, you can do it www.amberatlanta.blogspot.co.uk

  8. I wish you all the best with balancing school work and your job, that must be so much to balance! I worked very rarely in University because the course load alone was a lot of work. I don't know much about derealisation, what is that exactly? I hope you feel better soon dear xx

    Sending light & love your way,

    1. Thank you so much, its quite hard to balance it all, I won't lie! Derealisation is just where you feel spaced out a lot of the time, and struggle feel like you're in the real world, its hard to explain!

  12. I don't know how you can hack uni and a part time job- good for you! But also take time for yourself!! Also that is so random I wanted a little sunshine tattoo but mine was more just to remember the great summers I had in 2016 and 2017- to be honest I just want all the tattoos. I want to see a pic of yours! I hope you begin to feel better Lucy and never hesitate to put yourself first g x

    1. I'm struggling, to say the least! I think the little sunshine tattoo is great, and I'd say get it if you like it! I need to learn to take some time out for myself, but I'm going to try and put that into practise from now on!

  15. I'm soo glad to hear that uni is going well for you! Studying Photography is soo much work, but it's worth it for that end grade and it's such a rewarding subject/job! I love your new little tattoo as well - I think I saw a photo of it on Insta stories or Twitter, I can't remember now! It's lovely though and I love the meaning behind it xo
