Being a student nurse during Covid-19

~ Before I write about my personal experiences, I just want to acknowledge that this pandemic is having an impact on everyone but in completely different ways. We need to remember to be empathetic to each persons struggles because none of us have experienced a situation like this before. Lives have been completely shifted for… Continue reading Being a student nurse during Covid-19

third year!!

So here we go! I'm about to start my third and final year at university. I hate to say the very common thing of "omg you won't believe how fast time goes" but it's scarily accurate.

motivations

So this post is inspired by this video by Carrie Hope Fletcher which was part of her "May, myself and I" project which I also attempted to do on my Instagram - corporealdays.

My longwinded rants about anything and everything have, understandably, taken a… Continue reading a momentary pause

I'm just generalising here but we start secretly drinking as teenagers at house parties or in parks, we go on nights out to clubs, we drink in pubs with family and friends, even for… Continue reading Alcohol

uni life

I can tell you this was definitely not the case for me at least. High school sucked with bullying and mental illness a large part of my… Continue reading uni life

“home is where the heart is”

Think i need to give a little bit of context before going on a rant about why I, someone going into their second year of uni, is getting sad about going back and away from home despite really not liking it. I live in a large town in between Manchester and Liverpool where nothing really… Continue reading “home is where the heart is”
