Unfortunately, for the past week, I have been suffering from the dreaded ‘writers block’. Feeling uninspired by generally anything that’s online at the moment, I have been opting to read my book instead of blog posts and listening to podcasts instead of scrolling through social media. The wonderful bits from this week reflect this, so while I may be feeling uninspired, some good things have come out of it.
Trying new things
While I hope my lack of interest in the online world doesn’t last for long, I have relished in trying new things. I have started reading new books, listening to new podcasts, watching new series, and, now I have a Netflix account, have watched films that I have always been meaning too. I am definitely guilty of just sticking to what I know, so I’m glad that I’ve been shaking things up and *Professor Trelawney voice* broadening my mind.
Daydreaming about holidays
Another consequence about becoming quite bored with all things ‘internet’, is that I have been daydreaming more and more, on holidays I know I can’t afford. David and I, already have a two-day trip to Poland planned at the beginning of May, and we have a mammoth of a trip to Mexico planned, in 2018 (one that is costing us a god damn fortune).
Now call me greedy, but I want all the trips. Indonesia and Seattle, two places we’d love to visit, are definitely not in our budget, and while money is meant to be being saved, it hasn’t stopped me from searching Eurostar tickets and air BnB’s to Paris. Apparently, we can’t afford it (I think £100 for a two-day trip is an absolute bargain), but with (already scheduled) holidays, graduations, important birthdays and moving house all lined up this year, it’s maybe not the most sensible idea. A girl can dream though right?! (photo above from a beautiful park in Paris, which you can read more about here).
As I have 9am starts this term (waaaah whyyyyyy) it has meant that I have been getting up at a time that I am just not used too. While it’s painful to have an alarm set at 6:30 most mornings, eating breakfast in bed, warm showers and electric blankets are the stuff dreams are made of. Plus the frost first thing in the morning is kinda magical.
Student Perks: 50% of food bills
On Monday night, my friend Chloe invited me to dinner as she had a 50% off voucher for a restaurant in town. The food wasn’t the best I have ever had, but after we both had a main and shared a dessert we only ended up paying £13. YES £13. No-one is complaining when food is that cheap, let me tell you. Horray for being a student!
