girlnextdoorfashion now comes with business cards!! shame I have no-one to give them to!!

Aren’t they cute?

Sorry outfit posts have been a bit MIA the last few days!! Truth is I haven’t really worn anything interesting and it’s been raining loads!! I have just ordered some amazing red military shorts from BooHoo though which I’m very excited about, but my parents came yesterday and took the majority of my clothes from my uni house :[[

I’m really sad to be leaving. Well, I’m excited about next year, but right now all I can think of is everything I’m leaving behind. It’s hard to imagine next year right now because I have no idea what to expect. And what I do know is that this year has been the best of the life and I really don’t want it to end.

I’ve loved so much of this year. Just being settled at uni, living with my best friends and all the fun and freedom that comes with that. As an only child I didn’t deal well with moving to university and I don’t cope well with change. My first year is a blur of being lonely; half the time spent trying to fix a relationship that was already broken, and the second half spent trying to accept that some things cannot be fixed. But this year I really found who my friends were. I’ve met and loved some amazing people. People who just make me happy by just being around. People who completely get me. And yeah, it hasn’t all been plain sailing. I still get down, I still get lonely, but now I’m surrounded by people who pick me up when I’m down.

There has been heartache. But I’ve learnt that I can love again. And I guess all that you can do when faced with bad experiences is to learn from them. And I hope I have.

I’ve loved everything I’ve done this year, even at the times when the pressure I put on myself almost made me crack. Dancing five times a week was worth it when it came to the show, researching and working hard for the university newspaper was worth it to see my name in print, working at my bar job is great fun but not always the way I want to spend my day, but I’ve received the benefits in great friends and a great social life, as well as the money to fund my ever growing wardrobe.

I can definitely say I can look back on this year with a smile. And I hope I say the same thing next year. The thought of moving away from my amazing life here is terrifying. But I’m excited to find out what I’ll learn on the way.
