This week marked me being at university for a whole six months, potentially the most life changing months ever and they've passed so quickly. 

Since September, I've proved to myself that I can live alone & manage my money, realised I now know the meaning of missing people, met some really amazing people & learnt a lot about myself. I've definitely grown up a lot.

School days, are they all they're hyped up to be?

So, earlier today someone posted a Facebook status about how much they miss school, which got me thinking, are they really the best days of your life?

Do I really miss getting up at 7.20am, making myself presentable followed by a 15 minute walk to school, which once I got there consisted of 20 minutes in a glorified portacabin then 6 hours of lessons & a grand total of 1 hour in breaks, before another 15 minute walk (often in the cold/rain)? Answer is, probably not.

Breadcakes, Buns, Patties & Chip Spice!

Until I came to uni last September, I hadn't realised how many words used in everyday life were unique to where I'm from!  Being from Yorkshire, more specifically East Yorkshire, I use an awful lot of words & phrases which it seems the majority of my uni friends don't understand.

Oversized baby look? I don't think so...

So, last night, when I ventured out to McDonalds (my second home) for a nearly midnight snack, I entered to find people sat around in 'onesies' & a lad casually trotting about wearing a 'snuggie'...(had I realised this was allowed, I wouldn't have changed from my bright pink cow print jamas & massive slipper boots!) I'm sorry, but I didn't realise these were items I could walk to a fast food establishment in, even at 11pm, it still shouldn't be socially acceptable.

When will people stop jumping on the football bandwagon?

So, tonight saw England play a friendly against Holland and as expected, they lost 3-2.

The thing that annoys me most about international football (besides it's interference with the Premier League) is the many people, who don't care about the sport at all, who suddenly appear as if they're the worlds biggest football fan.

And before, you get all 'what does she know?' it turns out 'she' knows far more than most people think. As someone who spent 5 years going to Old Trafford to watch Manchester United play, I know more than most about football. I have actually seen England play more than once & have been to Wembley more than once to see matches. One of my more memorable matches being the 50th anniversary of the Munich air disaster one against rivals Manchester City.
