A Letter To My College Friends – 20/11/16

Dear friends,

Its currently midnight and instead of sleeping, I’m writing this…. whilst listening to a sad playlist on Spotify… Oops

I can’t begin to explain how grateful I am for each and every one of you.

Before college, high school life was shit. (We are yet to have a heart to heart about this) High school was full of bullshit, liars, arguments and two faced people. The environment is different in college… from the tutors to the students to the layout of the college altogether.

The thing that stands out however, is the attitude and ways of the people around me who alter my day to day life…

Without any of you I’d probably be alone (as sad as it sounds) and feeling lost. You all know I have a few other friends in the college from my high school and don’t get me wrong, they’re great and supportive every step of the way. Coming into the MPJ course has seriously had an impact on me and the person I am.

I’m really not sure what else to say.

Thank you for everything you’ve all done for me the past couple of months, and thank you for an amazing friendship I’ll be able to forever cherish. Thank you for contributing to who I am now. Thank you for all attempting to cheer me up when I’m feeling down and crappy.

Time is a crazy thing and will always continue to baffle me.

You’re all amazing people. Lots of love ♡

(I’ll probably also get in trouble for not mentioning Craig & Joe – so thank you both for believing in all of us.)

My Sudden Love for Coffee 

 

Hello friends,

In the past week I have found myself to be a sudden coffee lover. My wonderful college friends can back me up with this because I have never (I repeated never) been a coffee drinker.

I always found the smell  extremely appealing but I never liked the taste because of that odd aftertaste you get. (Just me?)

So this is probably the strangest post you’ll ever read but I’ll give you the story anyway.

So last week we had a new girl called Melissa join our class and she was lovely! Thankfully she’s come over to my ‘half’ of the class to my little friendship group and she’s settled right in.

So last week on her first or second day, we went into the Costa in the college and Mel ordered a Caramel Coffee Cooler. She didn’t like it much so I voluntarily decided to have it. I think because I’m a very frequent tea drinker, the coffee must have been a shock to my system.

If you have ever seen Over the Hedge, you’ll know the hamster on there gets very hyped off energy drinks and goes absolutely mental. This is pretty much a good comparison to how I reacted to the coffee. My legs couldn’t stop shaking and I was getting very giddy.

So.

Conclusion.

Don’t give me cold coffee. It’s currently 4.20pm and  I’m on my third cup of coffee of the day so I probably won’t sleep tonight.. ah well.
Just want to give a quick shoutout to the lovely bunch of people who have recently added me to a lovely facebook group so I can connect with different bloggers and interact with new people.

I said I was going to post this at 6pm but I’m changing my mind and I will post it as soon as I finish writing.

Thankyou all so much for reading and following my blog!

I’ll speak to you next week.

🙂

My Winter Essentials 2016

Hello everyone,

Over the past few days the weather has become ridiculously cold all of a sudden here in the UK. There are people like me who are picky with the weather when it comes to the temperature. For example – if its too cold, it annoys me and makes me grumpy and I don’t love it. I like it to be semi cold. Not really really cold, but; somewhere in the 15s. Yes. 15 degrees.

Anyway. Today I want to share with you a few of my winter essentials which are absolutely necessary during the change from October to December.


The first one – of course, is a lovely warm cup of tea. Now, there are lots of different types of tea out there but I like to be very original and have a nice cup of Tetley’s. You can’t really go wrong in all honesty. And make sure you make it properly, the right way in the right order of steps. Tell me how you make your cup of tea in the comments. Let’s see who’s really doing it properly. 


The next essential is a little bit odd but when you read ahead you’ll understand why.

I am asthmatic (not majorly, don’t worry I won’t collapse on you), therefore I have to now start getting my flu jab. I also had this done last year as I found out I was asthmatic back then. In previous years I have found myself feeling absolutely rock bottom with colds and flu’s and viruses etc. Therefore having my flu jab done is an absolute necessity.

It may be a little odd for some people, but I promise it makes the cold and flu season much easier so you avoid getting ill.


My next essential is something I’ve not actually managed to get yet, and that is a scarf. I’m hoping to visit Primark within the next few days to go and get myself one. If I can’t find one in Primark I’ll end up in New Look and there is one in there I do quite like. Its navy blue and has white and red and black combined into it, but Primark ones are much more affordable.


After Bonfire Night for me, it means Christmas  is drawing nearer and we can finally start getting excited for it. During the winter months leading up to Christmas, I absolutely love to get fairy lights. I currently have a multicoloured pack in my room waiting to go on my little Christmas tree, and I also have some purple / pink fairy lights trailing around my bed cupboards. I love coming home and making my room feel cosy and warm just so I can block out the cold for a little while and concentrate on warming up.


Those are all my current essentials for Winter and I’ll be sure to do an updated one in about a month or so to see if I have any more (which I definitely will). As I said earlier on in the post, let me know how you make a cup of tea. Which way is the right way to make a cup of tea? We’ll find out! ?

Thank you all very much for reading and if you want to hear of my updated winter essentials in a few weeks – a month, don’t forget to follow my blog and join my little family 🙂

Much love,

Abi x
