So I've decided to start a blog.. this seems like the 'popular' thing to do now, but I genuinely just needed a space to speak my mind, get my thoughts on paper and let them fly, and I've actually been thinking about doing this for a while now. In fact I started a blog back in September but with all the stresses that have come with university, I didn't manage to keep it up and recently I decided to delete all those posts that I made. I did this for two reasons- one they seem quite embarrassing looking back on what I wrote and two, I was writing about how I was dealing with university with the aim to give advice when in reality, I'm the one who needs advice.
One post in particular that I laughed at was one where I said how I was dealing with homesickness, and while I may have been dealing well for the first couple of weeks, 5 months in I'm struggling a lot more.
But this is the main reason I wanted to share what I'm getting up to, what feelings I'm experiencing and how my life is changing. If one person can relate to this then that would be great, it would be nice to know that I'm not the only one feeling like university has swallowed me up!
This blog won't be all doom and gloom though, I have some exciting plans ahead of me and I thought it would be fun to document what I'm up to, for future Emily have a laugh at, if nothing else.
So thank you if you take the time to read this, I do plan on updating as much as possible- whenever things pop into my head that I want to write about I will.
