It’s Autumn now!

So I guess it is Autumn now… Summer passed so quickly!!!

It is that time of year that everyone begins working hard – on a new year of their studies, or in their job to help pay for Christmas. It is, in fact, the most stressful time of the year for me personally. There is just so much to organise and so much work to do around this time of year, all while enduring the worsening weather and the pure truth that in this season, almost 22 years ago now, I was born. Yes, I will be turning 22 on Saturday the 17th of October. Fantastic. Absolutely spiffing. On the bright side, I apparently look younger than my age, and I get to feel like the Taylor Swift song “22” is especially for me for the next year, so there’s that.

Well, much has happened since I last posted on my little blog (more of a sort of public, personal diary of mine really…) so I have a lot that I would like to type before I continue about my life.

I have, unavoidably, developed a Lush addiction, as everyone does at some point in their life. I have been trying to win the battle against the army of acne that covers my face – to no avail as of yet. I love Lush regardless though. Lush is like a shining star to me, brightening up even the shittiest of days. My skin is looking particularly bad? Lush is the answer! I am feeling down? Lush to the rescue! I am bored and want to buy something entertaining? Lush! Need something for me and friends to do while hanging out? Let us travel to Lush!

… I am a tad obsessed.

I literally went through the ingredients of every facial product on the Lush website to research how comedogenic they are, so that I’d know which products would not worsen my acne. I don’t know what it is about Lush, but almost everyone loves it. It has yet again been rated the top high street store for customer satisfaction. That says something doesn’t it. That fact alone almost makes me feel justified to spend all my money there. They also have a lot of vegan products, which is fantastic – plus I am able to read through the ingredients without them being written using their chemical name, which is a first! I wouldn’t say I am 100% satisfied with them. I’d obviously prefer if all their products were vegan friendly and if more of their products were non-comedogenic, and I feel like some of their staff do not know much about the products they sell. A great company overall though. I will show and tell my products in my next blog post perhaps.

Since dropping out of University, I have decided to home educate myself in A Level Physics and A Level Mathematics. I have bought all my textbooks, found where to sit my exams and now it is just down to me paying my exam centres and studying the textbooks. I am over a month late in terms of studying, so I will really have to make sure to make up for that during the weekends, mornings, evening and holidays!

I am currently living off of leftover student loan, so another thing for me to sort out ASAP is a job. Lots of places are looking for Christmas staff – but places are quickly being filled, so I need to get my CV out there fast!

Hmm, what else is there to say…

If any of my readers are interested in personality types, then you may know from a prior post of mine that I am an INFJ. Well, after taking a few socionics tests and attending a couple of meet-ups, I am now pretty certain that I am also an EII (INFJ) in socionics. This is actually quite peculiar – as far as I know, most INFJ’s in MBTI test as INFP’s in socionics, because they do not correlate. Well, I don’t know how this has occurred but it is the case. I will also make another separate post soon about personality types, as I have a lot to say about the subject since last time!

I actually have several half-finished blog posts written – about my holiday, about music, about things I have purchased etc. I think I just let things pile up in my mind for too long, until I find it difficult to do anything at all. That is why I love writing in this blog. It isn’t written to please anyone but myself, yet if others do enjoy what I write then that is pretty cool too.

Sorry guys for the massive blog post. I must post more frequently to prevent a buildup like this from occurring again!

Thank you for reading 🙂

My plans for the holidays.

Summer time is the perfect time to get things done. The weather is warm, the sun it out and there is plenty of free time to do all those little things that you’ve been nagging yourself to do. There are so many things that I personally would like to sort out during the holidays!

One thing that has been on my mind a lot recently is my health. That’s not to say that I’m in a bad way, my health just needs a little maintenance! I am super unfit and get tired just walking up a flight of stairs, and I keep noticing new wobbly bits on me that weren’t there before. I would like to lose ~7lbs of weight, to begin eating healthier and I’d like to start going swimming for a few hours every week to help myself become fitter. I believe that a healthy body makes a healthy mind, so I’m hoping that the healthier eating and exercise will help with keeping me cheerful and with alleviating stress too!

I’d like to sort out moving out soon too – and I need to find a college for me to begin attending this year with the courses that I want to take. I’d like to take physics and mathematics  as intensive A levels, so that I can work hard to get better at physics before heading back to university.

I am also going to find myself a job so that I can support myself over the course of the next year. I’ve quite liked working from home doing freelance jobs in the past, so I will probably try that first.

Last but not least, I’m going to be driven through several European countries in the space of around a week which will be really exciting! I love travelling. 🙂 I’m not 100% sure which countries we will be driving through yet but it will be at least 6 different countries!
