After months of blood, sweat and (almost) tears, the 20,000 word MA Dissertation is complete ✔️ Thoroughly enjoyed pushing myself in my MA degree. Delighted that I'll be remaining at Swansea University to pursue a History PhD. I can't wait to get started and take my career to the next level. Although for now, it's time to relax! 👌🤓🎉 #swanseauniversity#history#postgrad#GWA#thegrind#academicgainz
Und manchmal kann ich es noch immer nicht fassen, dass diese Stadt im Norden jetzt mein Zuhause ist. Nach dem Umzug war ich so geblendet vom Rausch der Endorphine, dass ich ganz vergessen habe, dass die Realität ja einen Flieger nach mir genommen hat. Angekommen ist sie pünktlich letzten Mittwoch, hat ein paar Tränen dabei gehabt, mir gesagt, dass ich meinen Lieblingsschal in Wien vergessen habe und ist ungefragt in mein kleines Zimmer gezogen. Nun liegen wir hier, gucken gemeinsam aus meinem Fenster und während sie an Deadlines, Zahnarztbesuche und Weihnachten denkt, lasse ich den Endorphinen heimlich freien Lauf.
Went live this evening in our accountability group sharing my 3-step process for meal planning and how it saves SO much time during the week. Now I’ve got my list in hand and am heading out to get the grogs 🥦🥕🍌🍐🍋 so I’ll be ready to meal prep for Round two Week two coming up.
PS 👉🏼 Saturday nights are the best time to grocery shop! It’s like a Sunday morning (where all the food is restocked and fresh) except you miss the crowds.
10/10 would recommend 👍🏼
Y'all...job hunting is HARD.
I mean I knew it'd be hard going in, but I didn't really consider all the burnout, rejection, and radio silence you face. .
I know that these are just the realities of job searching but that doesn't mean it isn't disappointing. I've been working through it by taking care of myself (check out that fresh hair color 😏) and doing lots of personal development (@loriharder is with me on every car ride). How do you get through tough times?
Looking back on old college pictures of me I can’t help but reflect on all of the changes I have made in my life. Exactly four years ago I took the picture on the left with a group of friends as a freshman in college. I was uncomfortable but I thought “I’m in college now this is what college kids do”. Most weekends I’d go out and wake up feeling horrible the next morning. I would eat crappy food to beat the hangover and then get ready for the next week of classes until I could do it all again. .
Flash forward to the picture on the right which is about a month ago. I graduated college and moved 10 hours away from home. I am happier and healthier both physically and mentally than I have ever been and I am building a life for myself that I am going to be damn proud of. .
In four years I don’t want to look back on any picture from now and think “what the hell was I doing”. I’m on a mission to build my best life. It’s up to me.
I’ve been living in this room for three months now but now term is starting along with my PhD and I’m so excited to start it by living with my fantastic girlfriend (and other lovely housemates) and our room feels very much like our own now - pls ignore the mess 😬 #hellobrum#uob#newyear#phd#fresher#postgrad#gay#newroom
Some of us are in Dublin 🇨🇮 this weekend. Magnificent libraries like the @trinitycollegedublin library have been the iconic symbol of knowledge for millennia and still have much to offer... even in this digital age!
sweet creamy bowl of gloriousness🥣 banana and peanut butter topped with some vanilla @swedishglace and sprinkled with cinnamon😍💚
my first week of uni activities and induction sessions, first week of integrating into a new student community, first week of balancing multiple aspects of life, and my first 50+ mile week of commuting complete😩🙌 I mean if this week was an emoji story it’d probably look like this 🤩🤗🥇🚴🏼♀️😭📚📖🤷♀️🙌🎉
Do you ever find yourself jumping right into things without planning them out first? Asking for a friend...
Just kidding, totally for myself. That’s why we’re taking a quick break and I’m giving you a short 4-1-1 on my life before I get the ball rolling too quick.
Follow the LINK in my bio to see what’s going on & get a glimpse of what you can expect while I brew up (brew up... coffee in pic... get it?) my first real post from Nash.
Choosing which Uni to go to was the first major life decision that was truly mine to make. In sixth form I felt overwhelmed by this, how on earth was I going to pick one out of over 100!
Around 4 years ago I sat in this very spot (approximately) on the Piazza steps having attended a Warwick open day and fallen in love with the campus, the range of societies on offer, the Philosophy department and the general vibe of the uni (student/SU side, management can stop screwing us and our staff over). I instantly knew this was the University I was meant to go too! But I knew my grades were not where they needed to be to be accepted. I sat here next to my mother, on the verge of tears wondering how I was ever going to up my IB points score by 4! But as you are all aware - I did just that. I am here today with a BA in Philosophy with Psychology from Warwick and so many memories from what has been an incredible 3 years at Warwick...
Now what not many of you know yet is I am coming back for one more year to do a Masters! I will be saying farewell to the Philosophy department though as I move to IATL. Bring on MSc: Humanitarian Engineering. See you very soon Warwick 💕#warwickuni#graduate#postgrad#excited
when your workouts so good it smiles back at you (swipe 👉) 😂😂😂 I remember the days where the only sweat I was getting was because I was living in phx 🙃 now this daily sweat from my living room gives me LIFE + SANITY (oh ya and I lost 50lbs nbd!) 💪💦👟🦄 about to drop details for my October fit fam. If you want in go ahead and fill out the link in my bio called “Join the Fit Fam” #TNTWellness
My mind is abuzz this Saturday morning.
