I last published a Life Update about two months ago and while nothing drastic has changed in my life, I thought it was about time I updated you on a few things I've been up to lately. I always find it interesting reading through these posts because it's like a diary for me, in a sense and so, they are definitely one of my favourites to write. Anyway, let's talk about what has been going on in the last two months...

I've finished second year completely now. I finished on the 21st of May and it feels weird to not be revising but, I'm not complaining. I'm not really sure how my exams went and I don't feel confident about them at all but I know I tried my best and at the end of the day, there's nothing I can do about it now so I'll just have to wait and see. I receive the results on the 20th of June, which feels like ages away but I know, like most things, it'll come around so quickly. I'm just really hoping that I've managed to get a 2:1 this year. Second year has been so strange overall and when my Second Year Truths blog post comes out, you'll probably see why. However, it's still taking me a while to formulate that blog post because so much has happened and it's kind of difficult to process it all. However, I will definitely be sharing it soon.

On the topic of University, I have pretty much moved out of my student house now and I'm living between my parents house and Josh's parents house. Let's just say, it's a lot less anxiety-inducing than living in Exeter. While all of my stuff is still there and I'll have to organise some time to move it all out and hand my keys back, I'm in no rush to do that yet. The benefit of me not really living there at the moment means that I can use my room as some sort of storage room, which is greatly needed at the moment!

Regarding the whole weight loss thing - we've joined the gym! While I'm writing this, we have only been once and I think we are going to go again tonight. I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. I want to feel fitter and healthier but equally, I feel super self-conscious in the gym. When we went a few days ago, I literally stopped what I was doing pretty much every time someone walked past because I just didn't want to feel laughed at - it's annoying because part of me knows that nobody really cares what I'm doing and they are just focused on themselves but still, it's not easy. However, I'm sure I'll become a bit more confident with time.

Another thing I've started is Youtube! If you've been around here for a while, you'll know that this is a big thing considering I've been saying that I'm going to do it for literally years. I've got a few videos up now and I'd love for you to go and subscribe here. At the moment, I'm enjoying filming content and I've got a lot more planned for throughout the Summer. I expected myself to feel a lot more uncomfortable while filming but it's definitely going better than I thought it would.

So, there's my little rambly life update but just so you know, there is a very exciting life update that I'll be sharing on the blog next week! I'm intrigued as to what you think it might be, so let me know down below!
