Life Update: January

So earlier on in the month I posted my New Year's Resolutions (here) and a list of things I wanted to achieve in 2015 (here).

As expected, 2015 has so far been a hectic year. For those of you who don't know, I'm a finalist at Warwick University. On top of a Dissertation, endless essays, and seminar reading, I also manage two blogs including this one, and I am employed part-time by my Department to help out with various things. So, how have I been getting on with my 2015 goals...

Running? Yes! This is one I can definitely say I've been really good at. I've seen an improvement in my running technique and I feel more confident in my ability. I've lost another 2 pounds since the start of 2015, and I'm about where I want to be now in terms of my weight.

More charity work? I finally bit the bullet and signed up for my first Cancer Research Race for Life 5k event. I'l be doing it on my own, and I'm definitely terrified but it isn't until July. If you would like to sponsor me, I would be really grateful! You can find the link here

Saving Money? So far I have been really good. I had some Christmas money left over so I did purchase myself some Vivienne Westwood shoes (oops - but they were in the sale and they are to wear for my 21st and Graduation!) but I've been budgeting really well in terms of how much I've been spending on food. Usually when my student finance comes in as well I do a big online clothes and make up shop, but I have resisted so far which is good for me!

Keep Calm it's Final Year? This has DEFINITELY not happened. I've had two moments I can remember where I have been so stressed I thought I could scream. On the whole I've probably been a lot better than usual, but I do still worry a lot and this is something that is going to take a lot of work.

Stop biting my nails? I was doing really well until I had these two major stress incidents, when I bit them right down. But they were so ugly and painful that I think that was the final straw for me. I'm happy to safe I haven't been biting now for over a week and I can definitely see at least a little white on each nail. Miracles can happen after 20 years of biting!

Bag myself a job I love? I haven't got a job yet I'm sad to report, but I have had some really positive feedback from a graduate scheme this month who invited me to complete the next round of tests. I won't hear back now until around mid-February, but fingers crossed for me please!
