First Month at Uni

Hello everyone! First of all, I do have a twitter, so if you do as well, please check it out and follow if you like it! It's mostly personal-type tweets. Here it is.

Now onto the main topic of this post: a little bit of an insight into what my first month of my first year at university has been like. If I were to sum it up in one word, that word would be busy. But so exciting and different and incredible.

I am in the Science faculty, so I'm taking courses like Biology, Chemistry, Calculus, etc. I'm really enjoying my courses so far, but am certainly nervous about midterms, which start next week. It all is very different from high school, though. A lot more independence, a lot more stress, and a lot of new experiences. I meet new people every day and have made tons of new friends. It's all very different and very exciting.

I have been relying pretty heavily on chocolate/tea/skittles to get me through the missing-my-family-and-friends-and-boyfriend part of things, but other than that, I have been having the time of my life. And I even managed to get away from studying for a bit yesterday and took some pictures of the beautiful campus.

I just loved the way this building
looked with the dappled sunlight.

There is my university experience so far! Really, I have no complaints, other than the lack of sleep, the lack of money, and the sudden change of weather from gloriously sunny to bitterly cold. But I'm adapting, and so far, things are going swimmingly.

September Favourites

Wow, hello everyone! It's been a while, eh?

I have really no excuse other than the fact I've been CRAZY busy settling into university. But now it's been a month, I'm getting used to the homework load and living in dorm, so I feel like I can begin regularly updating again. And what better way to start it off with a good ol' favourites post?

Favourite Clothing Item:
Steve Madden boots
I got these boots while searching for "sensible university shoes" for my long walks to class, and have not been disappointed! They are comfortable and go with basically any outfit. I don't think they'll perform particularly well in heavy rain, but hey, that's what rain boots are for.

Favourite Cosmetic:
Eos lip balm
A basic cosmetic, but an awesome one. I got the summer fruit flavour, which smells INCREDIBLE. The lip balm itself applies smoothly. I definitely want to get my hands on more flavours.

Favourite Music:
I Choose You by Sara Bareilles
I picked up this song (for free!) at Starbucks, where it was featured in one of the Pick of the Weeks. And okay, it is the most adorable, feel-good song. It's lovely! I adore Sara Bareilles' voice, and continue to enjoy her music.

A rather short post, I apologize, but my chemistry homework is calling my name. I hope you all are having lovely weeks, and I'll get back to you soon!

What are some of your September favourites?
