Living in halls is an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone that is going to university, however I do have a few problems with it, well my experience with them at least. I have compiled a list for you of the things that bother me about halls.
I’m sorry for my severe lack of posts, I’ve not long returned from a 3 week long holiday in Denmark, and I have had absolutely no internet for the past 2 weeks! I will post about my travels soon, but until then I shall continue with the post.
I’m certain that I have said this before, but I am the last person to talk to about body pride, because I am not proud of my body in any way, shape or form. There are a few reasons for this, but some of these imperfections I have come to terms with, the others not so much. I am overweight and this has been a problem for me for the last 3 years. This is one of my imperfections that I have not come to terms with, but is one that I am currently working on to sort out.
I have also got a rather disgusting looking scar on my right hand, that I have had to come to terms with, simply because I am stuck with it for the rest of my life. It’s a strange story how I got this, but it makes me giggle a little bit. It was two years ago on my 17th birthday and I was supposed to meet my boyfriend at the train station just down the road from where I live. I realised I was running pretty late to meet him so I ran to the train station (which is down a pretty steep hill) and as I got about 10 feet away from the bottom of the hill I lost my balance a slid down the rest of the hill on my front. It was quite embarrassing because there was a lot of taxi drivers that saw me fall over (they did come to help, its not like they stood there and laughed). I then met my boyfriend who had no idea what happened, and we went to the Indian takeaway to get his food, and I sat in the shop and cried. I had scraped both of my knees to oblivion (yet somehow my tights were still intact) and I scraped off a large and deep patch of skin off my right hand near my wrist. So it has now healed and scarred, and it looks wrinkly and nasty! The picture below is not very clear but I have circled it.
I think that the main thing about being proud of your body is just to accept the things that you cannot change, for example; my scar, and to change the things that you can, for example; weight, hair colour etc.
I hope you enjoyed this post!

I’m probably the worst person to talk to about when it comes to my body or body positivity. This is mainly because I am not happy with my body at all, and in all honesty I only ever manage to persist with a diet for about a month.
For any of you that don’t know who Peggy Carter is, she is a female world war 2 Agent who ends up being Steve Roger’s love interest. I love all things 1940s/50s I just love the style of the periods, so doing this outfit was actually quite fun for me even though it is slightly basic.
This week’s challenge for 100 days of being geek chic and healthy, is to three base outfits on out women influences both fictional and historical. My three influences are: Arwen from LOTR, Molly Hooper from Sherlock and Marilyn Monroe. I have reasons for all of my choices, but I will explain them later.
The design for Princess Bubblegum is perfect she is covered head-to-toe in bubblegum pink coloured clothing, even her hair is pink. So creating an outfit for her was relatively easy, compared to others that I have done!
As the first book that I have read for a very long time, I am very glad that I chose this one to start with.
