An Update

Hi everyone,

As you may or may not have noticed, I haven't actually blogged at all over the past month. Well the reason for that is that I have been extremely busy and I shall tell you why now…

I've enrolled at University to study History! It's a bit different to what I was doing at work, which was accounting and as you may or may not have been aware, I was also studying an accountancy course. I have to admit though, this is one of the best decisions I have ever made. In September 2013 I was supposed to be attending University but decided in the February earlier that year, that I didn't want to go anymore, despite having applied and having my offers. I pulled out of my place in August 2013 on results day due to the fact that I had a full time job that I had started at the end of July. Since around that time, I had been regretting the decision to not go to university, especially after hearing how much fun all my uni friends were having and I was just unhappy where I was. 

Yes, I did get a new job, and yes the feelings of regret did go away, but they soon returned. So in September, during Freshers week, I decided to go for it and apply to study History, which is the subject I was going to study the previous year, and I got accepted. I then had to tell my place of work, where luckily I only had to give a weeks notice having been there less than 6 months. I then flung myself into University and here I am! I will admit, I didn't do any reading in September pretty much, which is shocking I know, but I just need the time to get used to my life as it is now! 

I'm very excited about this chapter in my life and have already had three weeks at University which I'm really enjoying so far! I am still getting used to this change as I've gone back from work into education and it's just getting used to taking notes and making sure I read all the material required for each lecture.

But so far I'm enjoying it! And I hope to get back into reading very soon so that I can start posting some more book reviews!

Please stick around as I hope to be back soon!
