Hello everybody!

I am in my final year of my degree and I have no idea where I will be in 5 years time. And I am learning to embrace this.


Here are the my thoughts:


Since the age of four, there has been an obvious ‘next step’. In Britain you move from  Reception, to Year One. Primary school to Secondary school. Secondary school to College. Even University can seem ‘expected’ of teenagers today.

The question: “Where will I be in 5 years?” is one that can be quite daunting. It almost requires commitment. To a lifestyle, a career, a destination or specific people. When, in actual fact, you don’t need to commit to anything.


“What are your plans after Uni?” or “What are you going to do with your degree?” are two questions Graduates are frequently asked. And frequently don’t know the answer to.

But, why is it so important to know the answer?

  1. Fear of disappointment. Nobody wants to be a ‘flop’. But question what your idea of ‘success’ is. For me, success is to be happy.
  2. Money. Spending over £30,000 on University education is far too much money to ‘throw away’. There is a lot of pressure to make sure you don’t ‘waste’ your degree.

There is almost a sense of sophistication in having a plan, but remember to do what YOU want to do.


Where you will be in five years is just an estimated guess. People grow. People change. And you will continue to.

Embrace this, who knows how many adventures and successes the next five years will hold. Dream big.

Isn’t part of the fun NOT knowing?


I hope to be a better version of myself. To be happy in my career. To be a strong woman. To be well traveled, with piles of memories to go with it. I want to be genuinely satisfied with my life. I like the idea of constantly setting new goals, overcoming obstacles and grasping every opportunity.


It’s actually a wonderful feeling- a sort of freedom. You could be a number of things. The world is quite literally your oyster.

Bee xoxo

Hunting For A Job

Hunting For A Job

Feeling so anxious at the moment. I kind of assumed I’d get a job relatively easily this summer, but I’ve had no responses from my applications. And I need the money.

So today was spent filling out more online applications and looking at more jobs that have popped up. I applied to Wagamama and would love a job there, but the problem is I have no previous restaurant experience. It’s kind of silly as you won’t have any experience if you aren’t given a chance.

On the bright side, I had a gym induction. It’s smaller than the gym at Warwick, but it’s got everything I need. Plus I’m booked with a personal trainer tomorrow, so I can get this summer body on the way!

I also had noodles for lunch.

Deadlines, Burritos and Pina Colada

Deadlines, Burritos and Pina Colada

16th May 2016

Last week was a mash up of emotions!

  • Handed in two massive pieces of coursework. There is no denying it felt amazing. I feel as if I am finally getting the hang of this whole writing essays thing.
  • Officially finished all my lectures and seminars in my first year at University and I am beyond thrilled. Though, I still have an exam to revise for and a webpage to make.
  • Watched ‘Marley and Me’.
  • Beat my record distance on the treadmill at the gym and went every day last week with my friend Hannah. Plus I have even started doing the mini exercise routines by Lucy Wyndham-Read in between revision- they’re so quick and intense, I love them!
  • Managed to throw my favourite Disney mug in the bath, resulting in the mug smashing and creating a chip in the tub- white nail varnish was my only hope. Got angry. Tried to tidy the mess in an angry mood- got porcelain stuck in my finger. Cried. Phoned Hannah. Went for coffee.
  • As someone with majorly outdated music taste, I have recently been loving the Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack. I now know the words to Escape (the Pina Colada Song) backwards- seriously, why wasn’t I born in the 70’s or 80’s?
  • Tried my first Burrito at the Food Fair at University!
  • Spent 4 hours in the Library, later discovering the books are in no way useful.
  • Booked a holiday for next summer!
  • Had 3 coffee dates in one week… oops.
  • Went to the cinema to see Bad Neighbors 2- was in hysterics the entire time.
  • Took my dog for a walk, broke up two fights between my dog and some devil cats, and wrestled my dog away from a fight with a husky.
  • Watched the trailer for ‘Me Before You’ on repeat.

Bring on next week!
