Where Have I Been?

So you're probably wondering why I've been a bit absent over on the blog front lately. I've mentioned it a couple of times on here but I thought it would be a good moment to let you know in its own post. 

As of tomorrow I will be in my final week of university. I have not one, but two dissertations due in on Thursday. As you can imagine, I'm pretty stressed. 

I started my blog in my first year and university and it has honestly been the best decision I've ever made. Blogging truly is my passion and although it may not be at the stage I would like it yet, my dream is to go full-time and do what I love as my job. 

For me, I didn't go to university hoping to get any kind of particular job out of it, rather I was one of those people who thought it would be better to get a degree under my belt than nothing at all. I don't going to university at all. I'm so glad that I had the experience, even though it is slowly killing me, but I cannot wait for it to be over as well.

For the past three years I have been juggling university work, blogging at a full time standard, a part-time job, a relationship and more recently the introduction of my dog into my life. As you can imagine, I have a lot of stuff going on, probably more than a lot of uni students. It's been hard but I've always been determined to create regular, high-quality content for my blog and social media channels and recently it's just been so hard. I hope you understand why I haven't been able to post here. I've been trying to make up for it by posting regularly on my Instagram but even on there I'm finding it tough to create beautiful content that people actually want to see, rather than my bare face in the library in my ugly sweaters. 

But, the silver lining is that after Thursday I will be able to focus on my blog and social media content so much more than I've been able to since I began. I have another part time job that I will be starting as I'm not quite at full-time standard yet, but it's going to mean I'll still be able to focus a large part of my efforts on working towards my dream. 

And, if you're still here, thank you! Your support really means the world to me. It is because of you lovely readers that I am able to even think about working towards going full-time, rather than brushing it aside as some fantasy. You are all wonderful! <3
