Updates #1

So I realised that in my Back to Uni post the other day, I didn’t actually talk about a lot of the things that are going on in my life right now. I was a bit focussed on exams and they sort of took over the post, so sorry about that! I thought I’d start doing a bit of an update post about what’s generally going on with me once in a while. They might end up being daily, weekly, or I might forget and stop doing them all together! But I thought it would be an easy way to keep updated about what’s going on every so often 🙂

As is probably obvious, I am back at university now, in my new college room, which is pretty nice and modern, and quite big although it’s a weird shape so you can’t actually get much in it. I would put a picture up but it’s a bit of a mess right now, and no one wants to see the 3 days worth of clothes all over my floor. It’s really nice because for the first time in 3 years I’m actually living next door to all of my friends, which is great, and I think they might already be getting bored with me! Haha 🙂 We’ve been spending way too long at meal times when we go and eat in the dining hall/canteen that we have in college – I genuinely spent over an hour at breakfast today! Oops. I have had to start doing actual work though. I have 2 essays every week, and it’s just hit me that they’re due in on Wednesday and Thursday, which is really soon. So I’ve made a frantic run to the library already today, but I’ve brought the books back to my room because I hate the library. In fact, I hate all libraries as a place to work, because they’re so dull and you have to get all dressed up just to walk the 20m over to the library building. Urgh. I’m currently reading Plato’s Republic for my Thursday essay, which hasn’t been too bad thus far. I probably should have started my Wednesday essay first, but I’ve ordered a book for it which isn’t coming until tomorrow, so I might just wait until then….

Anyway, enough about my boring work! I honestly can’t believe that I haven’t mentioned this yet, but I’ve got a new phone! Yay! It’s the gold/white iPhone 6, and it’s gorgeous! I actually got it back at the end of September, and I really don’t know why I wouldn’t have written about it. It’s really big, and I didn’t even get the Plus version (the one which bends – lucky escape!). Knowing that they had the bigger version also coming out, I genuinely thought that they’d sent me the wrong one, because when I opened the box and compared it to my iPhone 5, it was just HUGE. Of course it only took about a day to get used to it, and now if I go on my boyfriend’s iPhone 5 it looks really tiny. It’s like when we all first got smartphones with touch screens and looked back at our old flip phones (you know the ones…) and wondered how on earth we could even read what was on the screen. But I’m so so pleased with my new phone, I really must get it a case though, because I can just see myself dropping it/scratching it/generally destroying it within weeks of getting it!

You also might have noticed that I’ve been uploading a few videos from my Youtube account on here. I’m trying to start a bit of a fashion/beauty vlog, with hauls, reviews, and maybe some daily vlogs. I wouldn’t like to do any tutorials because I don’t think I do any of my make up well enough for anyone to want to copy me! My channel is called This is Lilli, if you search for it it’s the top result. To be honest, I can see myself running out of ideas for it really quickly, but it’ll be fun to give it a go 🙂


I think I’m going to leave it there for now and have some lunch, although I feel like I have lots of time so I might upload something else later. That’s probably a bit optimistic, but we’ll see! 🙂
