The Weekend Blog
5th October 2014
October is finally here. I’m not sure about you but September just seemed to last forever.
As many of you are aware, I’m not a fan of the winter months. I much prefer to be walking around in shorts and dresses, or something even better; bikinis! I guess jumpers and snuggles in bed with mugs of hot chocolate are cute, but I’d much rather be out and about getting a sun tan.
I just feel so much healthier in the sunshine. My acne improves and my hips seems to benefit from the heat too. I should live abroad.
At the beginning of the week I was feeling rather low and homesick as I thought about my final year and being unemployed when I graduate. But now, after doing some research and reading around, I’m feeling reassured.
There are so many graduate schemes with many different career paths that you can do with any degree. I’m learning that I shouldn’t be ashamed of having a geography degree. It’s a degree and that’s the main thing. I’m not sure where my future is heading but I’m excited for what might be around the corner.
Just as I was starting to feel better towards the middle of the week, I caught a cold/sore throat. I’d planned on going home to Shropshire for the weekend and I decided to stick with my plans regardless of how I was feeling. I don’t think my parents were too impressed when I brought home my germs, haha!
None the less, I’m having a nice weekend at home. Yesterday we visited Shrewsbury and I finally managed to purchase a bag for my camera. My parents and I had a leisurely lunch at Loch Fyne, which specialises in seafood. I decided to be brave and ordered king prawn and squid spaghetti. I’ve never been keen on the idea of eating squid because of the tentacles, but I tried it and enjoyed it.
I didn’t take my camera with me but I did upload a few photos taken on a potato (or my iPhone 4 as you might know it better) to my Instagram. I have no excuse for not having my camera to hand thanks to my new bag.
Oh, and do you like the flowers in the photo? I’ve always wanted to meet my mum at the train station with a bunch of flowers, and this weekend I finally did it.
