Day in the life... (Gin sweets!)

This was a highly requested post and I honestly have no idea why because my life really isn't that interesting but here we go... A day in the life of a university student:
7:30am: Get up, get ready and eat an apple!
8:00am: Leave the flat and commence the walk down to university which take about 30 minutes, especially in the morning when I'm too tired to walk quickly!

8:30am: Shorthand lecture, I have to attend shorthand lectures every morning... unfortunately and I need to be able to write 100 words in a minute before I can drop it!!!
10:am: Alice, Mel and I head to the library for an hour, where I managed to answer one email and drink some coffee, Mel is the only one who is ever productive at this time in the morning!

11:am: We then headed to our analysing news lecture where along the way we got handed free gin sweets... which we naturally ate to get us through the next lecture!
Midday: We headed to a café where we did some more work and ate some lunch.
1:00am: Our final lecture of the day which was on social media.
2:00pm: We head back up the hill, stopping at morrisons along the way to try and find some mould cleaner… unsuccessful! (if anyone would like to gift me mould cleaner for my rank uni bathroom I would be most grateful!)
The afternoon: I completed the tasks I had to for my seminar on Thursday and did the online lecture.

The evening: I made my dinner which was bubble and squeak... as the night before I discovered that my packet of potatoes were growing things so I cut them all up and made roast potatoes and I still had loads left so I decided to make a boxing day classic of bubble and squeak which was probably one of the best meals I have made at uni so far! Then after a quick catch up with the flat... still trying to work out what exactly went on after Saturday night! I headed to my room where I practiced my shorthand! I'm super determined to pass it asap!!!!

8:30pm: Facetimed Amy which was sooooo lovely for the best part of 2 hours!
10:30pm: I washed my hair and got to bed ready for my 7:30am start again the next day!

Monday nights are pretty boring but on other days I play netball, or go out for drinks, or for dinner or on a night out really just depends on the week! But there we go that's a day in my life as a university student, not that interesting but you requested so here we go!

The next few weeks may be quite a few university type posts as they were really highly requested on my Instagram polls... so I hope you enjoy!

Love Niamh x

Interrailing around Europe...

How do you begin to explain one of the best experiences of your life? Seeing the world (well 5 countries) and making the best memories. This is my journey interrailing around Europe with my friend Amy.

Lets start at the beginning in Paris, which we were lucky to see, considering we narrowly made our train. On your interrail ticket it says to arrive at the station half an hour before your journey, be there an hour before! We arrive in Paris and after wandering up several wrong streets we find our hostel, Which is basic at best and the facilities were indescribable and its probably best I don't describe the shower anyways... Nevertheless we set out for the afternoon in true tourist spirit and saw as much of Paris as we could and getting the most candid photos possible. The Eiffel Tour, the Musee du louvre and the arc de Triomphe all featuring. The second day in Paris was spent in Disney land where Amy achieved her ambition in owning gold sparkly ears. To say this day was magical wou…

The eductaion system: a converation...

After recently finishing sixth form I wanted to reflect on my journey through secondary school; express mine and others views on the education system in the UK, the positives and the negatives. This post includes my views and also the views of others. Also enjoy our leavers and prom photos.

Applying for university...

I applied to university in October 2017 and will be starting in September 2018..hopefully! I was accepted on to 5/5 of the courses I applied to with 4 conditional offers and one unconditional offer, these offers included 2 russel group universities. I did university tests and completed an individual interview as well as a group interview. This was a highly requested post and as the next year are starting to look around universities and complete UCAS applications it was a perfect time to write this post.
Personal Statement Your personal statement really needs to stand out, you need to show that you are excited and engaged in the course but NEVER use the word passion!!! (Everyone uses it and its better to prove you have a passion rather than just stating it.) Its good to do an introduction - why are you excited about applying for the course, show an interest in a particular part and show your knowledge. The second paragraph you could talk about your current courses - what you have enjo…
