Hello again friends and family, it has again been a little while since last time but I am now back with another update on how I'm spending my time here in Sheffield.
During the last month I have been back home in the north, spending most of my time on exams and exam preparation and the rest of the time with my friends and boyfriend. Exams have finished and the semester has started, with new modules underway and assignments slowly piling up one by one. New textbooks have been bought and I am more than ready to start again after my time at home in Abu Dhabi.
I finished my two psychology exams within a couple of days after I arrived back in Sheffield after xmas, and I then had a written sociology exam a week later, so time was short and a lot of work had to be done. It reminded me a little of being back doing A levels and the pressure I was under during those two years, but now that I can handle stress very well, I didn't struggle much this time around.
The next two weeks after exams I had no commitments to university so I spent my time wisely...my liver would most certainly disagree. It was good to be reunited with my friends again, catch up and to see my course mates. I am very much enjoying the new modules for this semester, with Neuroscience as one of my favourites, as well as Essential Social Psychology. We have also started statistics, which is not really my thing, but I'm hoping it will be after I get a hang of it.
After a month apart from Elliot, I have also spent most of my time with him. Wether its walking to uni, studying together, making dinner, going on dates or nights out. We are really a couple now, and you can't really get one of us without the other! However, we do also spend time apart, doing our own things with our own friends. For his birthday, we spent most of the day together, we went out for lunch and then out to a few bars and a nightclub with his friends. I think he really enjoyed it, I certainly did.
For valentines day, (I've never really seen this day as anything special previously) I booked a table at a restaurant in town and we went out for a meal in the evening. The food was delicious and the company was even better, we will definitely be going back for other occasions. I ate more than I knew I was capable of, but it was definitely worth it!
Corporation Wednesdays is still one of my favourite nights out here in Sheffield, where we dress up in 'school uniforms' and go to the 'Skool Disco' mainly to get 'absolutely trollied' and have blue pints of some type of alcohol spilled down your top. The night usually ends at pizza roma where I usually devour a whole pizza and walk all the way home with my sensible and quiet friends, chips are also a popular night snack for many.
My mum arrived to Sheffield on Friday and is staying here for a week with me to see what my life is like here and to meet the people I spend my time with. I will write a post later on to update on how the week went and what we have been up to and what we have seen,
I hope you all are well, and that life is treating you gooooood!
