Journal Entry #1 - It's been a swell week

3 April 2017

Hey Kittens&Cats! 

I hope we have all had a great week, what have you been up to? University, college, school, work, traveling (you lucky devils)? I’d love to know. This is my first journal entry edition of many more to come and I have laid it out in a diary/journal like way with the days of the week and what I was up to during those days. I feel like this will make it look more fun and easier to follow - it will probably prevent me from rambling on too! This week has been pretty swell, a mixture of fun and stress (always a great combination no?)

Monday 27th March 2017 <3 
  I wasn’t up to much this past Monday other than planning the night ahead. I ran into town to buy some night out essentials and I also bought myself a new cheeky bodysuit - which I now adore! I also spent the afternoon in the library ‘attempting’ to crack on with my latest assignment. 
I was in real good mood though as I knew Matt was coming that evening to join us on our night out and I have been wanting a night out with Matt for ages and so I was very excited - and it was a great night too! It was so lovely to have Matt there and to be able to just dance with him and just have a lot of fun!

  Matt obviously stayed the night and so (after we recovered from the small hangover we had) we spent the day walking Chester Walls, which I hadn’t done yet since moving to Chester and it was lovely. It was a shame there wasn’t much sun out but that didn’t dampen our moods at all. 
We also had lunch and probably now one of mine and Matt’s new favourite restaurants. It was called Steak ’n’ Shake and it’s similar to  Five Guys but in my opinion better. The burger I had was just scrumptious. Definitely a must visit if you ever find yourself in Chester. 
We took a trip to waterstones so I could buy a present and whilst I was there I picked up ‘Heartless’ by Marissa Meyer (one of my all time favourite authors) and I’ve already started reading it and I just know I’m going to love it. If you didn’t know, Heartless is a retelling of Alice in Wonderland, telling the backstory of the Queen of Hearts and why she became how she is in the story we love today.
Matt left in the evening which sucked but I’ll be home in a week and a half so it’s not like I have to wait much longer. I headed to a Volley Ball committee meeting as I was nominated to be the Communications Officer for next year which I’m highly chuffed about. The meeting was really productive and I can’t wait to get stuck into my role in the new year!

Wednesday 30th March 2017 <3 
  I decided that I need to start getting up earlier, if I sleep past 10 I feel like I’ve wasted the day. Luckily I had a lecture at 9am so I had to get up early and I’m so happy I did. It makes me feel so refreshed when I have woken up early as I have so much time to do everything throughout the day - and not feel like I have wasted it. 
As you can probably tell I had a pretty productive day, I tided my room as it was a little messy after having Matt over and then I headed over the University laundrette to wash my clothes. I love washing my clothes, it’s probably the one chore you’ll find I love doing, does anyone else like washing their clothes? 
Whilst I was eating my lunch I caught up on the latest Once Upon a Time episodes and I just love that it’s back on! The ending though :( … Please comment down bellow if you know what I’m talking about! 
I then cracked on with my H E N C H assignment, I’ve made some progress with it and I’m feeling more confident that I will get it done by next Wednesday (the due date!!!) 
Wednesday evening I made sure I was going to get to bed early (shut eye before midnight) as I wanted to be up relatively early to head to the gym before my day started properly. A great way I find that makes me feel sleepy is reading, so I continued reading my new book Heartless - Which I am L O V I N G ! ! ! 

Thursday 31st March 2017 <3 
  I had a pretty productive morning on Thursday, I got up early and headed to the gym and I just felt so great for it. I then came back and spent the rest of the day just doing my assignment and going to lecture. 
In the evening I went climbing with the mountaineering group at my university and again, felt so great for it. I need to improve on my upper body strength and my confidence but I absolutely loved going and can’t wait to get really back into it. 

If you go to university, are you part of any societies? I’d love to know what ones.

Friday 31st March <3 
  I had a busy morning with lectures on Friday and then after my lectures I continued on with my essay for a little but - until I lost concentration… whoops! Other than watch a few episodes of The Originals (which is my F A V E at the moment) I didn’t do much during the day. 
However, I did go out with my uni friends to SU Friday, which is always a laugh. I ended up staying till close (3am) too which I wasn’t planning on doing but I didn’t regret it at all either! 
Did you do anything nice on Friday evening? Night out with the girls? Or a cosy night in?

Saturday 1st April <3 
  After recovering from a minor hangover I made it into uni to help out with an applicant day, it consisted of talking to future students and answering question. Nice ’n’ easy and I got a free £5 amazon voucher, another excuse to treat myself with a new book! 
After having lunch I spent the evening in the library getting nearly half my assignment finished; honestly this assignment is taking me far too long to complete, it’s driving me crazy. 
I then treated myself to a takeaway pizza and oh man it was good! I also caught up with all the current episodes in The Originals season 4, which is great but also sucks because now I have to wait a week until I can watch 1 episode! 

Sunday 2nd April <3 
  A lazy Sunday for me, full of completing my coursework, writing this blog post and watching season 8 of The Vampire Diaries (another F A V E of mine). But yes, I didn’t get up to too much on Sunday! 

Well firstly I do hope you liked this style of post, it does seem quite long which I’m going to work on, as I know how intimidating long blog posts can be! This is my first post however, so hopefully I will get into a better routine of writing these posts! 
Please let me know on what you think as I’d love some advice 🌷
