Wrap Up | October

September turned out to be a fairly successful month for me. My blogging frequently is increasing, at a snail’s pace but it’s something, but the biggest thing to come out of September was finally getting my result’s for my dissertation and degree! After a long and very painful 28 days, I found out I got a 1st overall for my degree and over 75% for my dissertation. After all the shit that has happened throughout the 3.5 years of my degree, it honestly feels like the best trophy to get a 1st AND survive being at university. I still can’t quite believe it, and I definitely can’t believe that it’s already the 1st day of October! Time flies by too fast, but I like to at least begin the month with a vague outline of what I might be getting up to.

Why It’s Okay to Not have a Great Time at University

As the start of the new academic term rapidly approaches, new and returning students alike may be feeling anxious about what’s to come over the next academic year. What will your classes be like? Will you get the lecturer who understands the difficulties of 21st-century studenthood or the lecturer who seems determined to make your life hell?

We are constantly assaulted with ideas and images of what “uni life” is going to be like from wild hall parties, cold showers in grubby student houses, never quite getting your seminar readings done, hanging around at multiple society events, and developing lifelong friends. But what happens if you get to university and find none of these things happening to you?

Well, I am here to tell you that it is 100% okay. And you are not alone.

Top 10 Tuesday | Graphic Novels to read in 2017

Of course, Top 10 Tuesday would go on a hiatus at the time when I wanted to get involved! No fear though, while the creator of T10T over at The Broke and the Bookish may be on a break, people are still participating with their own topics in the mean time! I’ve decided to do the same topic as the lovely Kate (Reading Through Infinity) this week, who exposed me to T10T in the first place, on “Top 10 Graphic Novels to read in 2017”. I really love graphic novels and have some amazzzzzinnggggg ones on my TBR list that I want to share with you all!

Stacking the Shelves

I feel like I have been away for the longest time and honestly, it has been making me so sad. Just as I was getting really invested in blogging, coming up with loads of future blog ideas, and working my way through my first ever Netgalley book, I got hit big time by my end of year deadlines.
