25 Things I Have Noticed Since Leaving University!

It's coming up to 18 months since I've finished uni and my life is definitely different now; whether or not this is a good thing, I'm still deciding!

No more are the lazy days or casual 3-hour lunches, looking 'busy' in the library or midday cocktails... The more I think about it, the more I miss the student life :(

1. Time passes quickly, really quickly, and no one warns you...

2. You will always look tired no matter how much makeup you are wearing or how much sleep you've had.

3. You will still eat shit.

4. You will have no time to do anything

5. TGIF becomes the real deal

6. Emailing your friends becomes the norm

7. Going to bed before 10 is acceptable

8. Staying in is more appealing than going out

9. Budgeting becomes a reality :(

10. Yet, you will always have no money

11. But always enough to shop :)


12. You will have no time to shop


13. Weekday drinking will be a distant memory

14. But, so will weekday hangovers :)

15. Sunday is reserved for doing nothing and eating roasts

16. Saturday is reserved for running errands - proper grown up style!

17. You will crave fruit. This is odd but one I have found is true :/

18. You will no longer socially drink coffee. You will crave it.

19. Vitamin tablets are your friend

20. Morning TV is just terrible... (although you probably already knew this one)

21. Your diary rules your life

22. Going to the gym is still a chore

23. The weekend goes crazily quickly

24. You will spend most of your wages within a week

25. You will constantly question what you are doing with your life/degree

I hope reading them hasn't made you think i'm an eternal pessimist... In fact I would like to think I am the opposite :)

There's probably many more, so if I think of them, i'm sure you'll hear from me again!

Until next time kids x

The 30 Thoughts Everyone Has On Their First Week Back At Work

1. Surely…? No…? It can’t be my alarm? Already? Really? But I’ve been asleep for 5 minutes?

2. Maybe I’ll just quit and Instagram pictures for a living. That would make more sense than having to get out of bed right now.

3. I haven’t woken up in the dark for a while. This feels weird. I’m 99% sure it’s still night-time.

4. Pretty sure I didn’t have to function on this level of sleep depravity before the break.

5. I can’t even see my makeup right now. Do I even dare do liquid eyeliner in this blurry-eyed state?

6. I should probably get rid of this festive nail varnish. Or can I get away with it for one more week? Maybe?...

7. I wonder how many people will ask me how my Christmas was.

8. Do I even remember how my Christmas was?

9. Driving this tired should be illegal.

10. I sort of remember how to do my job. Definitely going to be a bit touch and go today.

11. And maybe tomorrow…

12. Was my seat always this uncomfortable?

13. Shock. My computer needs 10,000 updates.

14. God oh god oh god, going to have loadssss of emails that my head just won’t deal with right now

15. Oh hey, that’s not too bad. I guess I’ll only have to spare 30 minutes of my day to sort through them.

16. Oh. 60% are from Groupon. Great.

17. Still though… maybe an hour will suffice? Wouldn’t want to miss any deals now

18. Was the kettle always this slow?

19. Remember when we all said we would detox in the New Year? LOLZ good one!

20. The office looks so bare without the Christmas decorations. I’m going to have to say that to everyone that passes my desk this morning and we can all join together in a post-festivity hatred. Aww team bonding. 

21. Oh great. I forgot my lunch. I never had to deal with this waking up at 11. *sigh*

22. How is it not even 11 yet? Time is passing far too slowly.

23. If one more person asks me how my Christmas was I think I might cry

24. Is it too early to book in all my holidays for this year?

25. Oh another Groupon email. Do I want to book a romantic break in the Lake District? A part of me thinks I do?

26. When will I stop writing 2014? That was like 10 million years ago

27. Maybe I’ll online shop at lunch to make myself feel better

28. Why are people selling summery clothes already when I’m sat here in a scarf and coat?

29. Can I stop saying Happy New Year now every time I answer the phone?

30. Can’t believe there are 50 weeks till next Christmas. *cry*
