Last week at home

This was supposed to be written and posted before I moved out, but I moved back to uni yesterday, oops.

I tried taking pictures of the packing process but it was oh so very messy constantly and I was very busy all week, mainly by leaving packing clothes to the absolute last minute.

So sorry for the lack of pictures on this post, but you can imagine what my house looks like. Please make it big with a pool and a private cinema, maybe with a helipad, I’ll take or leave that.

It’s been a really strange week, every time I used the shower or went to bed, I’d always think in a countdown to when I leave, and even though it was really exciting I was still very nervous, I had a very bad nervous stomach yesterday morning, mainly because I hadn’t seen my room yet, which I now have, and it is very pretty and I very much like it. The next post will have pictures. I could combine these and give you a new post but I’m not that creative.

It was also surprisingly strange to pick what things I’ll take with me, and what I would leave. I chose books that I’m currently reading, and the DVDs I brought are some of my all time favourites, I did leave some at home which I think I’ll pick up next time, how did I think I didn’t need Scott Pilgrim or Hot Fuzz?! They’re both amazing and I want to watch them right now.

It’s strange, as soon as I moved in, I realised how many things I’d forgot and still need. I kept thinking over and over what I needed to buy and bought it all, but I move in and suddenly there’s a whole bunch I completely forgot. Like that magic spray that stops your shower cubicle from getting streaky?! Completely forgot about that one.

It’s weird and new and fun, and this is the fourth paragraph in a row starting with ‘it’. But I’m having a good time, even if I have been up for 2 hours and no one else is even awake yet.

But I’m having some quality YouTube time, and that’s pretty great too

Packing

Surprise extra post! I just wanted to write and involve myself in something.

I’m a little sad/angry/annoyed/feeling a lot today and I wanted to channel that gross energy into a post of some sort. I don’t know why, I just want something good to come out of bad feelings, otherwise it’s the worst thing.

I started choosing things to take with me to uni, like books, DVDs and little things to make my room feel like my room. I want to make sure it feels like home since it’s going to be my primary home for a while, I’m excited for that.

Home Haul!

What a treat for you bloggy type peoples- a post that very much overlaps with a video (that I haven’t filmed yet) that will be uploaded later this week!

As you know (I think I’ve mentioned this before) I attend uni in Liverpool, and I go back for my second year VERY soon, which means moving out! I didn’t live at uni during my first year, but I am living in Liverpool for my second year, which meant buying a LOT of things. I absolutely love home hauls, Zoella’s being a favourite of mine. I’m actually watching one right this second as I type this.

These pictures aren’t on the prettiest background for one reason- I am lazy. There isn’t really anywhere to photo in the spare room, and I didn’t want to cart everything downstairs to take pictures of and bring back up. I am sorry. Once again, I ask you readers to forgive my laziness.

To paint a picture, I had this on whilst rushing around to take pictures before my camera died. Please ignore the terrible screen protector, it’s coming off and my contract ends soon which means I’ll be replacing my phone and I can’t be bothered replacing it in the meantime.

Bad crafting

The title of this blogpost sounds like a bad Christmas movie. A little bit at least!

This week’s post was originally going to be on what I’ve done over summer, but I’m pushing that back because I don’t go back to uni for almost a month properly, I move back sooner, but actual lectures don’t start anytime soon.

It was then going to be on breaking habits, as I’m trying to stop biting my nails (again), I stopped once for a while and it was great, but every time I worry I start biting them again. But now after Jim Chapman mentioned that under your nails is dirtier than a toilet seat, I want to stop forever now. But I’m still biting them…I got worse actually. I just caught myself biting them, so I thought it would be a bit contradictory to write a post about how I’m being great and stopping when I’ve regressed. Maybe in a few weeks.

Then this post was going to be on anxiety and worries, but I did a post on that recently, which I’d forgotten about, so here we are. I don’t know why I took you on the journey of this post but here we are.

I can’t rotate this picture and I’m too lazy to rotate it and re-upload it. Please forgive me.

So I had a cork board and some ladybird (or ladybug for the Americans) pins, that my mum brought home for me one day, and I’ve been thinking about what to use them for. In the end I decided to use them for the tickets and other things which have been taking over the magnetic board at the back of my desk, which is covered in anime/cartoon/video game art and doodles. It was beginning to look duller covered in tickets so we had to fix that!

London

Hello everybody!

I spent a couple days in London, to see a close friend of mine and also to go to Summer in the City, a YouTube convention!

Rather than post about my time at Summer in the City, which I filmed and am putting up on my YouTube channel, I thought I’d make a short post on the things I did yesterday in London.

Yesterday morning,  we had a bit of a lie in, after Summer in the City completely destroyed us, if you’ve ever been to a convention of any kind, you’ll understand that it’s generally a weekend of no sleep, barely any food, and being on your feet for a ridiculous amount of time. It always takes a couple days to recover afterwards, but we didn’t have that luxury! Sleeping in was good enough though.

We started the day with coco pops (a staple of staying in London with Fae), and with Bleach. Bleach is a manga series that started in 2001, which was then adapted into an anime series in 2004. We felt very nostalgic about the time we used to love Bleach, which was an amazing series for a while, the manga is still going and isn’t as great as it once was, but I still love and follow it. After this we headed to Covent Garden!

Another staple of hanging out with Fae is macarons.

We went to Laderee, and it was amazing. I love macarons, they look so great and taste AMAZING. They’re a little on the pricey side but they’re worth it. I truly appreciate this after the time I attempted to make some and ended up making a weird blue goop instead.
