Congratulations, you’ve graduated. Whether you got a 1st, 2nd or 3rd, whether you had a graduation at all or if it’d been cancelled/postponed due to *you know what*, whether it took you 3 years, 5 years or 7 years, you did it! You are a Graduate! How’s it feel?Continue reading “The Post-Grad Life.”
So I’ve finished. I’ve completed my BA Hons Degree, in a global pandemic. As many of you might know I have been studying a degree in Dance Performance at Addict Dance Academy in Leicester for the past 3 years, and it has now come to an end, but because of the pandemic and restrictions, it doesn’t feel real. We have finished filming our graduation virtual show that airs in July but aside from that, no ball dresses, no cap & gown, no holding the scroll and getting our photo taken. YET. Our dance school has been very fortunate to be able to keep going in these uncertain times and the amount of training I’ve managed to get in my final year despite being in a pandemic, has been impressive. It’s now nearing the date of me moving out of my Leicester flat and leaving my student life behind, and I can’t help but feel emotional and reflective of both the past 3 years at Addict and also the past 4 years I’ve lived in Leicester.Continue reading “It doesn’t feel real…”
It’s officially my last month of education… I graduate at the end of June and move out of my final student accommodation. This shit is getting real.Continue reading “The Countdown is on…”
**This letter was written on the 28th August 2020, 1 Month before I started my 3rd and final year. I aim to read this the day of or within the first week after I’ve graduated.**

Having completed my induction and having the start date of my final year of education and graduation is looming, my thoughts, feelings and emotions are heightened. I have been thinking a lot about how I’m feeling as I enter 3rd year and near on my graduation. Thought I’d express it all to you all in hopes to re-assure others that could potentially be in a similar (if not same) circumstance to myself that we’re not alone.Continue reading “Thoughts on Going into 3rd Year and Graduation.”
Are you about to start your first year at university? Well not to worry. I have been in your position and I can tell you all about what to expect. I remember all sorts of things running through my head when I was about to move into student halls. Student Halls were a whole different world compared to living at home. The university course itself was completely new to me and I didn’t know anybody when I got there.Continue reading “Advice For 1st Year University Students”
I’ve been thinking about doing this post for a while, in fact I first had the thought about writing it back in my first year but I put it off as I knew my blog wasn’t really aimed at or focusing on dance, however I am trying to change that and write more about dance because, as a lifestyle blogger, that is my lifestyle.Continue reading “A Day in the Life at Dance School.”
As most students do, during summer they start moving home because accommodations don’t have the option to stay over summer. And lets be real, we do miss home a lot more than some of us admit (yes, me included!). I’ve moved back home now, for just under 3 months which personally makes me so happy! Getting to finally spend time with family and friends with no sort of time restraint.Continue reading “Moving Back Home for 3 Months?!”
Now that we’re in the height of spring, regardless that some days it doesn’t feel like it – Typical English Weather! I feel like something else I’ve seen everyone doing in lockdown is having a bit of a spring clean or a re-decorate of somewhere, are you in your home?Continue reading “Re-Decorate: Spring Home Spruce Up.”
Finally, after what seems a very long time coming, I’m moved in and settling in very nicely at my new flat in Leicester and I’m taking on my 2nd year at Addict! This post is one I have been thinking about writing for a while as I wanted to document the long process of finding the flat from the very beginning to now having moved in and settled.
It’s just going to be the “how I got here” kind of post because as I said it’s been a long time since I first saw this flat.
