Hello chums, how has your week been? Mine has mostly been filled with revision, yawn. My first exam is tomorrow, not looking forward to getting up early! I’m feeling pretty prepared for this exam so hopefully it should go well, but I’ve got another 3 exams to do after that, none of which I’m feeling very confident about at the moment. I’ve got a revision tutorial to go to on Tuesday though, so that should help me get organised. I can’t wait until the 21st May when I will be done with 4th year!

It was my friend’s birthday yesterday so we went out for a meal last night to a Mexican restaurant. I had enchiladas mole poblano which were so so good. Lots of margaritas and daiquiris were also consumed! Not being able to afford to eat out a lot is one of the things I don’t like about being a student. If I was rich, I would eat out at least once a week – clearly I just love food too much.

I also ordered my dress for the graduation ball this week. It’s a vintage mint green 50s prom dress and I think I’m a little bit in love with it! I ordered it from an American online store so it hasn’t arrived yet, but should hopefully be here in a week or two. I’ve been on the lookout for a dress for a while, but it was so hard to find vintage dresses in larger sizes. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve refreshed Etsy and Ebay over the last few weeks! When I noticed this one and saw that it was in my size I took it as a sign of fate and ordered it straight away! Hopefully it will fit nicely once it arrives and I won’t have to get it altered.

Apart from that life has been pretty boring, I’ve just been stuck in the flat typing up lecture notes and reading revision articles. What have you been up to?

  • I tried my first daiquiri the other night, passionfruit flavour with something else thrown in and my goodness it was amazing! (: Revision revision revision, my life is the same, except with essays because I am yet to start revision because there isn't enough time in the day eeee! Looks like you've had a good week though (: x

  • In the same boat for revision :/ only I've got at least two more years of it left… yaay! I've been searching for a vintage dress for my end of year ball too – I desperately want a 20's Great Gatsby-style frock but so far no luck 🙁 good luck in your exams! XX

    Lovely photos 🙂 I need to start looking for a graduation dress too!! x

  • Rachael says:

    Can't wait to see your graduation dress – it sounds gorgeous!

  • It was so cloudy here last night that I didn't get to see the super moon, I was super bummed. You know whats sad is now that I haven't been in school for a long time I kind of miss it – I even miss the homework – perhaps that will happen with you when it's all over? I'm sure your hard work will pay off and it is always over in a flash. I love good food too, I always wonder about people who don't love food. I can't wait to see this dress, it sounds gorgeous. Good luck with your exams!
