Life update...

Hi everyone!!!
I know its been a long time! Again! But I haven't been slacking off... far from it, I've actually been working on a few different exciting projects!

Alongside this I have started university where I am studying Journalism. Which so far I'm really enjoying, so yeah I have been pretty busy!

I am now in week three of university so I'm getting well into the swing of things and I now know my schedule a bit better, so I thought I would discuss what I am going to be doing on this blog!

I am going to try and keep my regular post day as Wednesday every week! But please bare with me if I fail to upload, I have got a few writing projects going on at the moment on top of university. I do promise however to try and stick to this schedule though!

Over the next few days I am going to be running polls on Instagram as to what posts people want to see or read (@niamhslife_) but If you do have any suggestions please leave them in the comments or message me via twitter (@niamhslifee) or on Instagram!

Niamh xx

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!!!

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.
