Life Happens

I often joke about having no life and that I spend way too much time doing grannyish things, like baking and knitting. I have no shame in saying that my typical weekend is full of reading wondrous books, knitting wooly hats, baking marvellous cakes and taking inept photos of cats. I would much prefer to nestle up under a blanket with a mug of tea and watch Harry Potter or Notting Hill rather than having to attempt to put on make up and go “out” pretending to be cool and completely in my comfort zone while really feeling very awkward and slightly terrified.

So it’s strange when suddenly I have very little time to do any of my usual grannyish stuff. Instead I am so busy with college assignments, projects, exams and the pressure that comes from all that, not to mind missing my old friends, worrying about what other people think, trying to save money whilst freaking out about the future…. There just isn’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. And anyway I’m just too tired to do much more than watch an hour of TV before falling asleep at 9pm.

Without anything interesting to write about, my blog has become very silent. I probably could have ranted away in posts ( like what I’m doing now ) but that kind of stuff is for a diary. And my blog isn’t a diary. My blog is a place to share cool and inspiring things whether it be a great new book, a yummy recipe or just some paintings I did. Avada Kedavra negativity and Accio fun!

Over the last month(x3) here is what I have been up to.

    I totally understand the whole "going out" thing. It's so much easier to curl up under a fuzzy blanket and read or stream Netflix than to find a socially acceptable matching set of clothes to go out in public! And, you know, there's always that whole socializing thing… But I do always enjoy being with friends and/or doing things outside of the house once I finally convince myself to go.

    I'm currently obsessed with my garden and worrying over what to put where and whether I should have started planting things a week or two ago. There are baby tomato plants growing in my living room window, and I finally got some lettuce and carrot seeds out this evening.

    Good luck with your assignments and exams! I look forward to reading your fun posts. πŸ™‚

    You've been studying Python for a long time haven't you?That is what you were doing the last time because.Anyways knitting caps and reading books you're like Hermione and she's cool. ^_^
    I've been a bit busy as well but I try post every now and then but the number of my posts have reduced quite a bit.It's hard to keep it up with exams and college now.Pheew πŸ˜›
    Do great on all your college projects πŸ™‚

    I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one ^_^ I know, the effort of finding MATCHING clothes!! πŸ˜€ Haha, that socialising thing gets to me too. Meeting up with friends is great and I'd probably go insane if I never took a step outside the front door, but just as long as we go somewhere I can hear myself think.

    Oooh! Gardening! That's such a lovely hobby. I go through fazes of green thumb and think I'll be all healthy and grow all my veg. That's so cool. Will you eat them then? Or do you have enough to sell to a few people?

    Thank you! I am also looking forward to it and slightly dubious about what they will actually be… ^_^

    Well, it's a module for the whole year, so I am kind of always studying it. Hermione, now that's someone I don't mind one bit being compared to. Maybe I should reform S.P.E.W.
    College takes up so much time! Haha πŸ™‚ You still manage to post a lot more than me though πŸ˜€
    Thank you! ^_^

    Haha, I love that little phrase "Avada Kedavra negativity and Accio fun"! I just had to say that. Good luck with all your assignments!

    Thanks Sunny! ^_^
