A LITTLE LIFE UPDATE


First of all I sincerely apologise for the lack of posts here on Beauty Babbles. Uni has been crazy since I last posted, with assignments, general work and other stuff which I will get onto. I'm going to try and summarise all the fabby things I've done and that have happened since I last posted in as succinct way I can. 

Mid February 
Reading week, and boy was I ready for a break. My uni course is pretty intense so after 6 weeks it's great to have a week to recompose and go over everything we've been bombarded with in the previous weeks. Also I got away from uni this reading week, I went on a mini adventure to stay with my grandparents. It was so nice to see them and spend time with them, as well as having a break from campus (as much as I adore it!). This time also gave me a chance to see my parents again which is always great. 

Sundays 
I am part of the showchoir at uni, and with the spring showcase beginning of March we had Sunday rehearsals pretty much 10am-5pm every Sunday. As much as this did halve my weekend time, the Sunday rehearsals were some of the best days I've had at uni so far. It really bought me closer to many members of the choir, and I discovered some of my now closest friends through all that time singing and dancing. 

That One Crazy Week 
First week of March. Busy, busy, busy. I had an interview for something I'll come to in a second, a summative (it counts!) presentation and the showchoir spring showcase, as well as normal uni work and commitments. The presentation went well (I think) and the showcase was so much fun you would not believe. It involved different colours including a song where we had UV lights (see photo above) and rekindled my love for performing and the buzz you can feel on the night. 

Other Exciting Things / Random Trips 
More recently I have become a student ambassador for my uni. I am so excited for this as I knew I wanted to be one before I'd even arrived at uni. This will give me the chance to do many different jobs such as campus tours and workshops as well as generally spreading the love for the place I now call home. As well as this I have also been elected as Vice President for the showchoir, which excites me greatly. The people in the choir are like my family, and I can't wait to get involved with the organising and running of it all for the next year. 

Finally just some more random but still fun things I've done - dressed up for numerous campus club nights e.g as a minion, a Hawaiian surfer and a sailor. Been bowling - a great different trip out. Went into town and found an adorable independent cafe, having a bacon sandwich and brownie for lunch with a friend from my course. Taken many more landscape photos of my uni, which I continue to love day by day. 

So that's what I've been up to, I haven't forgotten you all, nor have I been avoiding posting! Hopefully during Easter (which brings more exciting adventures) I will be able to hop back on the blogging bandwagon and bring you plenty more Beauty Babbles!
