slowly you unfold me

Mood: dizzy blehh.

I’ve finally settled into my new home for second year at Lancaster; everything is unpacked and has a home, and I’ve gotten into a routine of making my own dinner and doing my food shopping again. Money is a bit tight though, I don’t get my student loan until about the 6th October, so I’ve got about £67 to live on until then (which is completely do able!) Apart from an electricity cut this morning we’ve had no problems either, which is great – I’ve heard about students getting taken advantage of with student houses, such as poor heating, old/un-working appliances and little support for when things do go wrong. So far so good though, touch wood :3
I got my results on the 8th September for my resit – I got a B+, bringing my first year grade up to an upper second! I totally wasn’t expecting a B+, although at least I now know what I need to do this year ahead in order to get better grades then last year. I’ll take photos of my project soon and post them here as well – I just need to get them back from my uni first haha. I’m really proud of the paintings I did, I loved the amount of detail which went into each tiny piece (basically, I painted realistic lips onto matchboxes!) and I can’t wait to share them here!
Despite the issue with money, I was looking at little things I could buy to reward myself of getting through first year, I’m leaning towards the leather bag by ASOS though, although £70 is a steep spend for me. I’ve set up a savings account to save up some cash this year, so at the end of this second year I will hopefully have a nice sum of money to spend on myself hehh. I’m aiming to put in a minimum of £40 a month, and whatever is left unspent from my monthly budget each month. I’ve also been handing out CV’s and job applications around Lancaster too to see if I can earn a bit extra over Christmas too, which would certainly help as Christmas is a crazy expensive time (train tickets to go home, presents, going out to xmas parties, need I say more?).
I’m working on Decadent MB every day now, and I’m still looking for people to help out with administation. I’ll send a few of you emails if I’d like you to be admins – it’s almost ready to be launched too – so a few inputs would be awesome 🙂 I can’t wait!
I’m about to get ready to go out tonight anyway with my housemates, so peace out x
