It has been a while since I've done a tag questions post and I just kind of felt like answering some questions today. It also gives a chance for any new readers that are reading my blog to kind of get to know me a bit more. I did not create this tag and I'm not sure who did but the questions are below so if you're struggling for a blog post idea then by all means try this one or any other tag questions. They're really fun to think about and answer. Anyway, without further ado let's begin these 13 personal questions.
1. What do you order at Starbucks
I always order a Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks. I love it.
2. What's one thing in your closet that you cannot live without?
I know for a fact that I have about six pairs of these in my wardrobe but it is my black jeggings from Primark. I love wearing them because they're comfy and go with evterything plus I have several pairs of them so that probably explains that I cannot live without them.
3. What's one thing that most people probably wouldn't know about you?
I talk to myself. A lot. It's a problem.
4. Name one thing that you want to do before you die.
Go to Harry Potter world in Orlando!
5. What's one food that you cannot live without?
6. What quote/phrase that you live by?
"Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light." - Albus Dumbledore. I love it.
7. What do you like and dislike about the YouTube community?
I like the fact that it's free and these days anyone can be a YouTuber and the opportunities that come from it. What I dislike is all the negative stuff which has been happening on YouTube in the last year. Some of it was not good.
8. What's your number one most listened to song on iTunes?
I don't use iTunes anymore but I do use spotify and my top song was Who I'd Be from Shrek the musical because that is just an amazing song. If you have not heard it then go and listen to it right now. It's the best. In fact listening to the whole soundtrack and watch the musical because it's such a feel good musical.
9. What kind of style would you define yourself as having?
Comfy and happy.
10. Favourite number
I've always loved the number 5. I don't know why because it's not related to my birthday but I've just always loved the number 5.
11. Two hobbies
Reading and video games. Woo.
12. Two pet peeves
People who leaves your message on read and unnecessary rude people.
13. Guilty pleasure
Candy Crush. I know not many people probably play it anymore but I still love it and play it all the time. If I'm on my phone, I am most likely playing Candy Crush and I also get frustrated when I run out of lives and have to stop. It's a problem.
That's all the questions there is. Feel free to try out this tag if you're struggling ideas for a blog post. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read my blog and I'll be back again soon with another.
See you then.

Happy Easter Everyone!
I hope you all have a lovely day and eat lots of chocolate. It's also April Fools Day so just be aware that some things you see online might not exactly be true. I'll be spending today travelling in a car for three and a half hours going back to Wales to visit my mum.
I'm sorry for the lack of blog posts once again but life has been very busy and stressful. Especially as I'm in my third year and I had just finished my second term which means I only have one term of uni left then I'm done. So yeah. No pressure. A few things have also happened in my personal life which have kind of shaken me up a little so blogging has taken kind of a back seat. I'm back now though and I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter. I'm off uni for the Easter holidays now so I have time to get my blogging back on track again so expect more posts from this month.
Anyway, that's all I have to say for now. I hope however you spend this day make sure it's a happy one. I'll be back soon with another blog post.
See you then.

The realisation just hit me that I do not have long left until my third and final year of university is over. My last deadline is on the 9th May which is in 10 weeks and I have one exam afterwards then that's it. I'll be done with university. You don't realise how quickly your final year of university goes by. As soon as you reach the end of February that's when it suddenly becomes real that you don't have a lot of time left. Granted there is a lot of work which still needs to be done in those ten weeks but it's kind of scary.
I submitted my fourth assignment of third year on Tuesday so I ended up checking to see what my next deadline was and it turns out to be my dissertation in April. Yeah. The big dissertation. The one that every third year dreads and it's my next deadline. After that I have four assignments and an exam but still. That's when it really hit me that I don't have long left until my third year is over. It's both sad and exciting at the same time but also really scary as I still don't have a full proof after uni plan. Oh well. I still have a lot of work to do until that time comes so the after uni plan is kind of at the back of my mind. Assignments are more important right now.
So yeah, kind of being had a stressful February and March will definitely be just as stressful. In fact these next three months are just going to be probably the most stressful months of my entire life. Just going to have to take it one step at a time and hope for the best.
As you can kind of guess from this post I've been a bit busy with uni work so that's why there's been a lack in blog posts but I'll try my best. Maybe blogging will be a stress reliever. Although, I'm trying to go offline to relax because after staring at computer screens to do assignments it's kind of an eye strain and a headache to keep doing more on my laptop. That's why I've tried to relax offline. Although, I always end up watching YouTube videos sometimes which is probably not the best way to relax. Oh well. Whatever works, works.
Anyway, that's it from me for this blog post. I'll be back again soon with another post if I'm not overloaded and stressed out with uni work.
Thanks for reading and I'll see you soon.

We're already ten days into February and I've only just now made a blog post. I do have an excuse though which you may already know what it is from the title of this blog post. Third year of university is probably the most stressful year of them all and that's because it's a lot more pressure this year. By the end of third year, all the marks in my assignments goes towards my degree which is kind of the whole point of uni in the first place to get a degree.
Anyway, I'm doing advertising and media studies which many people (the ones who have no idea) think is an easy degree. It's not. It's still just as hard as any other degree. No degree is easy to get. You have to work hard to get it. I have essays and reports to write, I have advertising campaigns to make and I have to complete six advertising briefs while on top of that write a 10,000 word dissertation. All the while not trying to have a mental breakdown and I also need time to eat, sleep, socialise and of course the most important (and most needed) thing is time to relax. Yeah, third year is kind of stressful but I'm slowly getting through it. I'm actually writing this today (Saturday) still in bed (it's 09:44 in the morning) and after I've published this post then I'm going to get ready and actually work on my dissertation so yeah. I have had a relaxing morning so far so it's okay.
Anyway, I just wanted to say that if you're in university, college, school or even working and you're finding it very stressful. It's all going to be okay in the end. You can get through this. Soon it'll be over and if you are stressed just take a step back. Relax. Don't stress yourself out to much. If you're really struggling then talk to someone. Whether it's a parent, sibling, friend, teacher, lecturer boss or just someone you can trust then talk to them. They'll listen to you and they can help you.
So that's all I have to say for now. I just wanted to give you all a little update as to why there has been a lack in blog posts. I'll try to stick to posting every Friday but it is a very busy time for me in third year. Deadlines are coming up and I have assignments plus a dissertation to do which are a priority for me right now as they kind of determine my future so yeah. Bear with me. You'll get a blog post every now and then so I'm not going to completely disappear.
Stay strong because it'll soon be all over and you will finally be able to relax. I'll be back again soon with another blog post.
See you then.

This is something I never thought I'd talk about on my blog. Let alone experience myself.
Being 21 years old and never going on a date or having a boyfriend is kind of sad. I suppose I kind of thought I'd bump into Mr Right unexpectedly while I was out or I'd meet a guy on a night out and we'd instantly hit it off. Trust me I've pictured all the possibilities of how I will meet a man. One thing though that I always struggled with was online dating. I tried going on Tinder once upon a time but I just kind of got intimidated and kept swiping no to every single one because I had very low confidence and also the thought of texting a stranger just made me feel a little shy. All negative thoughts came to mind. "What if he doesn't like the way I look?" "What if we meet up and he thinks I'm ugly?" "What would we even talk about?" You know just the general fears that I assume most people get or is it just me. Who knows?
So long story short, one drunken night at home my friend signed me up to a dating app and created my profile then started talking to guys. Doing the bit I'm most afraid of. Initiating conversation. Although most of the guys started messaging me first and throwing out compliments. Which I'm not going to lie. As a woman who doesn't receive compliments from the opposite sex that often, this was just what I needed and felt so good. Sometimes you just need someone to tell you look gorgeous. Even though you've never met this person. Finally I eventually took the wheel and continued on with the conversations. Let's just say by the next morning I had several snapchats and numbers off some guys. It's quite an experience especially as I've never done it before. Although I've always wanted to know what it feels like getting messages from guys. I know it makes me sad but I suppose it's better late than never.
So yeah, I'm officially on the dating game and yes I do believe this could be the year for me. Maybe I'll find love? Who the heck knows but I'm just going to live in the moment.
Also, another thing which happened was I actually went on my first ever date with one of the guys that I had been talking to for a month and it went really well to the point where he actually stayed at my place after the date so yeah. I surprised myself actually but honestly it felt good to go on a date with a guy and everything just going really well. I've seen him twice since then so who knows what will happen.
Anyway, that's all I have to say about online dating now. Let me know if you have any tips or experiences from online dating n the comments below. I would love to hear them.
I'll be back again with another blog post soon. See you then.
