Having a job while in college

This year I made the decision to take on a job while studying in college.

I’m very fortunate that I work enough during the summer in my very busy and my very touristy hometown that I can afford to fund my way through a year of college. (I am also extremely fortunate that my parents pay my fees and my rent, so they money I have is spent on food and everything else in between).

So during my first year of college I had no work and quite a lot of free time. I would look at my friends who were holding down a full time job while meeting deadlines in complete awe at how they managed to juggle it all.

My Relationship with Alcohol

During the past year I’ve seen this discussion floating around the internet and it’s led to me thinking more about my mindset with alcohol.

To start off with, I do drink.

I was what some people would call a late starter to the whole drinking scene, and I didn’t have my first proper drink until I was seventeen during a work party. It was the one and only drink I had that night, and I went home feeling giddy and happy.

Even nowadays I don’t drink an awful lot. I never had the wild teenage years where I’d pre drink at friends house, sneak naggins into nightclubs or get sick in the taxi home. Do I think I missed out? No. I think if any of those scenarios had happened I would have hated it. I’ve only begun to enjoy drinking recently and that’s because I do it with people I feel comfortable with.

Some of my best memories have been when I’ve been drinking. Getting tipsy with my friends in my local pub, falling into a deep conversation with my friend in the smoking area or pulling my friends on to the dance floor to an over played pop song.

My 100th Blog Post

I’ve been blogging since 2014. I started because I wanted to have a place where I could write and express any thoughts I had. Three years on and I still love doing this, which is very surprising for me as I usually lose interest in things quickly! When I started I only told a select few people that I had a blog (ie. my mom and my best friend).

My Relationship with Makeup

The relationship people have with makeup fascinates me. It’s first off an art form, that can’t be argued with. You can change the shape of your face, accentuate your features and use your eyelids as a canvas to create shades of colours all blending into one like a painting.

What interests me is when people become dependent on makeup to go about their daily life. There is nothing wrong with this and everyone has their own reasoning for why they do that, but for years I never needed this. That all changed for me a year or two ago,
