Hello lovelies, hope you are all having a splendid week! I’m having a very busy week, hence this post. Since starting this year of university my time has been blocked out nearly all day. But, I would much prefer being busy than sitting around doing nothing all day. Like honestly, what a waste of time haha. Unfortunately, 24 hours a day just isn’t enough. I would much prefer 30 hours. Nevertheless, this post is to inform you of what I’m filling my days with. Why I’ve gotten so busy. And honestly, most of it is to become the most employable self I could be.
1 – I’m doing Ultimate Full Body Guide by Carys Gray
My relationship with the gym has been hit and miss. I’ve even posted a previous post of my gym routine. which lasted 2 weeks. And has now been deleted for other reasons. But, you know. It just takes a couple attempts sometimes and then it clicks. Even though my intense gym self-began Monday. I’ve 100% stuck to it. I’ve gone to the gym 3 days in the row and tracking macros – ok I might have lost you, I’ll do a post on my fitness at some point – for two days and that’s been an interesting experience. & these workouts aren’t a mere 30 minutes, it’s a full weight routine which in my busy university gym could last over an hour. However, I’m loving this guide, the support, it is just amazing. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to get fit and wants to incorporate weights into their routine!
2 – It’s my final year of university
If you haven’t gathered I’m a university student. And am currently in my final year of my marketing degree. It has been a rollercoaster but this year is my get stuck down, achieve that 1st year. Not that I wasn’t trying my hardest before, but I’m really really really determined this year. Anddddd, I also have my dissertation. Which my title is VERY interesting, I believe you all will love it:
An investigation into the effectiveness of social influencers within the beauty industry.
So my time has been filled with reading, researching, writing, group projects and we are only in the third week. But if this is what it takes to get a first, then I’ll continue doing it!
3 – I’m a president of a society/course representative
So I’m not only studying for a degree. I’m volunteering as a president of the business society. Which surprisingly takes a huge chunk of my time up. And then I’m also a course rep, which takes up time here and there. But I ran for these positions to better my CV, but they also are improving me as a person. I would recommend doing roles like this if you are at university. They improve you, are rewarding and you can build your network.
4 – Trying to keep up with my blog
Even though I’ve dropped my blog posts from 3 to 2, blogging is something that is still very time consuming and ends up being put off until last minute. I’m trying my hardest to not drop below 2 posts, honestly, it’s very difficult not to. Genuinely I love blogging. I find it very relaxing, I love taking photos, editing and writing. And this is why I’m trying my hardest to fit my passion into my lifestyle. That is why it’s 4:30 p.m. and even though I started work at 7:30 a.m., been to the gym and had group meetings I am writing today’s post. When I could be relaxing in a bath. I also love reading others blogs and Instagramming, but again very time-consuming. Really I should schedule in time dedicated to ‘blogging duties’. I’m awaiting my Dot Creates planner, and this is when I’ll certainly plan each hour.
5 – Oh, and I work
Who thought uni, blogging and extracurricular volunteering wasn’t enough for one to be doing. I decided to work this year as well. Probably one of the stupidest decisions I’ve made. But all money I make is being saved. That’s the biggest pro to it. And, thankfully, I only work 9 hours a week and I definitely won’t be doing any overtime anytime soon. If all of that isn’t enough. I haven’t even got around to chores, generally living and being. I’ve had to start waking up at 6 a.m., and I’m even considering making that 5 a.m.
Ahh, it’s kinda stressful writing all of that out. And if you honestly don’t think that’s a lot, then please let me know your schedule and PLEASE give me tips on how to manage this all!!
