We are officially in summer and I am so happy about it.
For me that means that all exams are done and a full time student life is replaced with a full time work life for the next few months -hopefully with a little holiday at the end!
I have to say I do like studying full time more than I like working full time, but what I do like about the holidays is that I only have one thing to worry about.
During term time there are so many different assignments and readings to be done in our free time, and whilst working part time on the side of uni there can be many things to focus on. At least now I know I have work and that’s it.
I have decided to take advantage of that, and I have spent June trying to get in shape and eat better, and I am feeling so great! I am happier, have much more energy this month and I feel much better about my self. The visual results has yet to come, but that I feel healthier is for sure. In the end that is what really matters isn’t it?
Greg and I are in bed now, enjoying our morning coffee before he heads of to work and I go for a run.
I am anxiously awaiting to see if I passed my exams as the results come out today or tomorrow. Wish me luck!
What a nice morning we have here in London! The sun is shining, it is relatively warm and not a cloud in the sky!
I have been out running errands and getting my blood test done this morning. I was out the door even before Greg something which is a rarity for me, as I had a whole lot to get done today.
I had the worst sleep last night and becuse I dont have uni until 1 pm today I wanted so badly to stay late in bed and catch up on my sleep, but this whole week there has been so many things I have put of that I wanted to get done before the weekend. So I figured this morning, that there is no time like the present. Besides, I am much more likely to get a good night sleep tonight knowing I have gotten things done.
So I hopped on the tube at 7 am and started my day. I had to go to Seven Sisters in North London.Seven Sisters is in South Tottenham, an area I used to live in for a year with my friends a little more that a year ago.
Walking around there made me realize that I actually miss living there quite a lot. I am not sure if it it the area I miss or the time that I was there, the housemates and the friends but I felt quite nostalgic being there again.
Tottenham has a bit of a bad reputation, I remember when we used to live there if someone asked me where I lived and when I answered them ‘Tottenham’ they would always shake their heads as they asked me how I liked it, because they already figured it wasn’t nice. I must say that I quite liked it though. The atmosphere was nice, there are many little shops on the main street and I actually think many of the streets do look pretty. It could also be the time I remember fondly more that the area, I am not quite sure. But in my experience I defiantly do not agree with a reputation of it being unpleasant.
Anyways, I managed to find all the places I had to go (much thanks to citymapper) and with the help of a Costa coffee and the great weather I didn’t feel that tired either! If you live in a big city or a city that is on citymapper, I must recommend you to get it, it has saved me from getting lost on so many occasions and helped me find places I need to get to. I have no idea of how I would find my way in the city if I didn’t have it. It is accurate and so easy to use.
Here is some snapshots from today
What saved me today!
Nothing like a cup of Costa in the morning
I have managed to loose my camera, so now I have to use the camera on my phone, therefore the quality is not too good. I will go and get another as soon as I get the chance though.
That was my morning I hope everyone has had a great morning as well, hopefully more awake than what I am today!
I am off to uni now, I hope you will have a great day and if you are in London or somewhere else that also has great weather enjoy the nice day!
