It's Been a While

Well hello again. It would appear that I completely forgot to post any posts when things got hectic, but I've missed blogging and so I want to get back into the swing of things.

I'll start with a few little updates, since it's been so long. Firstly, I'm living between my family home in Suffolk and my univeristy home in Kent. For anyone who doesn't know, I'm currently studying Politics and International Relations and absolutely loving it. Being a student has it's ups and downs; so far I've phoned my mum a million times crying about how much I just want to go home because I'm finding everything so difficult, but at the same time I'm loving it. I think that having anxiety does add an extra stress and complication that others may not have, but I'm finding so much satisfaction from being able to do the best I can, and knowing that this is something I've dreamed about since I was 5.

Secondly, I have a boyfriend now - which in all honesty I never thought would be something I'd be able to say. Not for any reason in particular other than I feel like when you start to hate yourself it's difficult to even fathom someone being able to love you. But somehow it's happened, and I feel so lucky to be with someone so supportive and caring.

And thirdly, in my uni assignments I've been complimented on my writing style, which pleases me no end. It seems like something rather trivial, but I've loved writing for as long as I can remember and so for an academic in politics to compliment my writing style fills me with so much joy. There's something so satisfying about receiving compliments on something you feel proud of.

There we are, I'm still here and I'll be blogging more. Hope you've all been well, what's been happening these past few months?

Em x
