Back at Uni.

Hello! πŸ™‚

I returned to Uni on Thursday the 15th. I did my Mathematics exam last Tuesday, I’m so happy that it’s finally over and done with! I know that I didn’t do too well in it, but I kept calm and just did my best.

I’m still having to study a lot to keep on top of all my work, but the exam being over is definitely a big weight lifted off my shoulders.

I have loads to get done this term! This week, I’m going to join some societies, clubs and classes that interest me. I will write about them in my next blog post!

I’ve also had a few shopping trips that I haven’t shared with you, so expect some haul blog posts soon. πŸ˜‰

Being at University can, inevitably, be very tough sometimes. Students go from having little responsibilities to suddenly being bombarded with being responsible for just about everything in their life – and those responsibilities only get tougher to handle!

I’ve got a very busy day today so that’s all for today. Just wanted to post a little update of what’s been going on in my life! Expect more posts very soon. πŸ™‚

About myself.

Hello! πŸ™‚

This post is going to be a little bit of information about myself, so that anyone reading my posts can know a bit about the person writing them!

Let me think… What might readers want to know about me? Well, first I will show you what my face looks like!

Hmm… I really can’t think of anything to say!

I am 21 years old.

I LOVE STAR TREK!

I am supposed to wear glasses but I haven’t for a while… Looking to buy some #5226 cat-eye Β Ray-Bans!

Let’s think… What would I want to know about someone who’s blog I read…

My real name is actually Storm – it isn’t a nickname! My mother just really loved the name when I was born. πŸ™‚

I grew up in London, England. I now live at my University most of the time which is in Brighton, England.

I love cute clothes! Anything that is a purple colour, light pink colour, has bows on it, is collared or anything that has an animal/flower print on it… I will want to own!

During the day I enjoy shopping, watching fashion and beauty videos on youtube, listening to music, studying (even though it makes me super stressed!), being out of the house and spending time with nice people. πŸ™‚

At the moment, my favourite subject is Astronomy, but I pretty much enjoy most subjects! I find geography, climatology, prehistoric history, geology, palaeontology, biology and many other academic subjects interesting. I also find interest in dance, music, art, languages, travel… So yes, pretty much everything!

When I’ve finished my degree, my ideal job would be to work as a researcher in the field of Astrobiology, or to be a teacher/lecturer in the field. I want to get myself a PhD, so I have around another 10 years ahead of me!

I sort of think of myself as having two sides – there’s the more nerdy side of me that loves Star Trek, Astrobiology, Dungeons and Dragons based games (and RPG’s in general) and K-pop! Then there’s the more girly side of me who loves fashion, makeup, music, art, animals and dance.

I get stressed stupidly easily and am pretty much constantly incredibly stressed about one thing or another.

I have an older brother, an older sister, a younger brother and a younger sister. I also have an adorable niece!

I consider myself a very open-minded person and different cultures and different parts of the world really fascinate me. I would love to learn lots of different languages and to travel the world in my lifetime. πŸ™‚

I am 5 ft 4.

My favourite colour is an inky, deep magenta. It’s such a beautiful colour!

My favourite animal is the ocelot. I am generally a cat person and the ocelot is just extra cute.

I have never purposely eaten meat! I was brought up as a vegetarian and have been mostly vegan for about 10 years.

My favourite thing to eat is probably just vegetable couscous, because it’s really easy to eat and is simple yet tasty. πŸ™‚

My favourite thing to drink is… Probably strawberry and banana smoothie. It’s just super healthy, tasty, has a nice rich texture and I just love it!

I think that’s enough about me now. Thank you for reading my blog! Bye!

My work and progress.

Hello! πŸ™‚

So, I’ve made myself a study plan and have begun studying.

Here is an outline of my study plan and how I will continue to progress:

– For Mathematics, we have covered 11 weeks of lectures, problem sheets and problem sheet solutions, so for the next couple of weeks I will study a week of lectures, problem sheets and problem sheet solutions per day. I have 11 days off left, and since I’ve already studied the first week’s work, If I start today then this method should leve a couple of days spare. The work covered up until this point in time hasn’t been difficult because of it being a Foundation Year, so I am definitely capable of studying the work at this pace.

– Mechanics:

Okay, so in Mechanics we covered 12 weeks of work, including assessments, multiple choice questions, workshop questions and lectures. I’m going to try and add in a week of mechanics work everyday along with my mathematics work. I doubt I will be able to keep up with this kind of a workload and I will more likely end up adding half of that to the amount of work I am currently doing daily, but Mechanics is much leas of a priority at the moment so this isn’t an issue.

I am super stressed about Uni. I have a math exam the first week back, we are beginning a couple of new topics meaning that it’s down to ourselves to make sure we are confident on what we have already covered in previous topics – at the same time as keeping up with current work, worried that someone might have broken into my room, worried about living entirely independently again… I have so much work to do at the moment and will have even more to do when I get back to Uni. Sometimes I wish that I could live stress free and that I could just enjoy the moment and live happily. I guess everyone handles life differently!

I love how so many different physics-related movies have been released recently. I saw ‘The Theory of Everything’ the other day. Again, it’s really encouraging and motivating to see a movie about physics – particularly one about a real life physicist with a brilliant mind.
