May photo diary '16

May has been a busy month and I'm looking forward to giving my brain a little bit of a rest in June. I've been focusing on revision and my exams this month, so I've continued with another photo diary to show you what I've been up to, with a lot of books, note making and a bit of fun whenever I could fit it in.

The rain came back.

Many notes; revision was upped in early May.

All of the words.

Started the last book of Atwood's Maddaddam series.

Angel face.

Finally bought some sandals (haven't owned any at all for a few years); the day they arrived and the subsequent few days it tipped it down :) of course.

Last minute revision on the train.

Post-first-exam treats with the girls; mine was the cute lil mango one and it was divine.

A rare day of revision with !makeup! on; v basic of course.

I am the queen of the layered pasta salad.

Oxfordshire is a dream on a sunny day.

Getting in a little last minute revision (and fuel) before my second exam.

Went to Giraffe for dinner with Charlie post-exam; the drinks were heavenly.

Early morning revision on the train.

Lawson released a new song and it is beeeautiful; the video is so wonderful, would recommend watching/listening.

Tried a burrito for the first time and as messy as it was, it was delicious.

Met up with Charlie and Chloe before going to see Busted with Aliya.

Hung out at Ruth's the following night and she made us the tastiest milkshakes; also met the gorgeous Tallulah for the first time and it's love.

Final revision session on the train to my last exam.

The next day Mum and I went to Grey's Court and fell in love with the gardens. The wisteria was super pretty and the mocha was life changing. A really lovely little place.

Reading on a Sunday after a night out. The pictures got very sparing in the last week of the month.

Hope you had a good May!

Until next time.

Exam season update

Who else is having a terrible time right now?

Thought I'd write a little update post, as I haven't been very present lately, due to exams and revision. So far I've had one exam and I'm glad I no longer have to think about it. However, I do still have three to go and they're all over a course of five days (which was not very well timetabled considering the exam period is a month long, but what can you do).

So right now I'm pretty much bathing in revision notes and I am looking forward to summer immensely. I cannot wait to have time to think about things that aren't English related for a little while (even though I'll have to start next year's reading over the summer).

I hope the photo diary post gave a little insight into how I spent April, I'm planning on putting one up for May as well if I remember to keep taking pictures. I would have liked to do more individual posts about what I got up to, but there just hasn't been enough time unfortunately. Song of the week posts have also been halted, but will be starting up again in June when my mind is a bit freer.

I've got a few nice plans in place for the summer and I'm hoping to add to them in due course. A bit of live music, some day trips, that sort of thing, which is just what I need right now. Next week I'm going to see Busted (after an exam lol), so I'm looking forward to that as a means to blow off some steam in the mean time.

I hope all of your revision is going well and you're staying as positive as you can during this period of study. We will see the other side of it soon and it will be glorious.

Wishing you all the best with your exams.

Until next time.
