Wow it feels nice to sit down and write something that I am not going to be graded on! I should be writing an essay on right-wing politics in Ireland but when you end up stalking the LinkedIn page of one of your sources I think its time to take a break… Right?
How has everything with you guys been? For me, things have been kinda tough recently.. College is absolutely kicking my ass! I have so many hours, assignments, exams and study to do I spend all my time when I’m physically in college doing work. This semester I promised myself that this would be the term I get fit, that I would work out a couple of times a week and get my body all toned and into shape.. Wanna guess how many times I’ve been so far? Ahh go on, guess.. I’ve been to the gym exactly zero times so far this semester. Way to go Kathy right 😛 (Oh and if you guessed zero, way to go you!) So in an attempt to counteract my non-existent gym routine, I downloaded a pedometer onto my phone. So despite me not getting a chance to go to the gym at all, I do get in some exercise and some exercise is better than no exercise! 🙂 Ok so back to my pedometer, basically it is an app on my phone that counts the amount of steps I take in a day. Ideally you are supposed to take 10,000 steps a day. I usually like to aim for around 12,000. Today my total has been 7,720 and given that it is almost 9pm I don’t think I’ll be doing that many more. Tomorrow though should be better as I am going for a haircut, which I have to walk to from college and then plan on having a wander around some of the shops before making my way back down to campus to study 🙂 Yeah I really do have such an exciting life..
So as in addition to college I got a job! Whoop whoop 😛 I literally spent the entire college year last year trying to get on and no luck so when I finally got one, I was delighted! I am working in the bar of a hotel near my house which is a bit of a struggle at times but most of the time I really enjoy it! Its such good experience to have on a CV and it can be fun in addition to that! 🙂 I work with a great bunch of people and we manage to entertain each other during our shifts.
Between college and work, I don’t have time for much else! I am a serious Netflix addict and I genuinely just don’t have time for it at the moment (Sorry Netflix), anyone else super excited for the Gilmore Girls reunion??
Something else that gave under the pressure of not having any time was my relationship. Myself and my boyfriend of 9 months broke up due to not seeing each other. We were in a long distance relationship with him living in one city and me living and studying in another, not exactly ideal when the one fight we had been about us not seeing each other. We are trying to be friends but it is damn hard..
Anyway in positive news, we are actually getting a proper autumn for the first time in a long time! Its crisp and bright, the trees are fabulous colours and leaves are falling naturally as opposed to a storm coming and them being there one day and gone the next. I always get slightly obsessed with taking pictures, especially of the sky,this time of the year!
Ok so I think I’ve let my brain run away with me enough for one day! I’ll talk to you guys soon!
Thanks for reading!
