Happy New Year! (and sorry I've been away)

I am knee deep in revision and essay writing right now. They're not lying when they say studying midwifery is one of the hardest things to do. My life is a continual balancing act - do I eat, do I sleep, do I revise, do I write my essay, do I socialise, do I relax...? I don't know, I don't think I'll ever know if I'm making the right choices, but while I'm home for Christmas (I go back today though, and just two weeks of my Mum's cooking is not enough!) I thought I'd sit down and give you a little life update.

I'll start with a little apology! I am so busy, unfortunately something has had to give, and it's been my blog. I have some posts I'd written before I went to uni so I've been posting them, but I am sorry I have been neglectful of this little space. The end of January marks exam and deadline day and after that I will try to post more frequently. I promise to try.

Midwifery. Where do I start!? It's everything they say it will be, everything they say it won't be, and more. Rollercoaster is an overused word to describe situations like this but it is the only one I can think of right now. I am always so busy, and my emotions are all over the place, but I'm enjoying myself. I wouldn't say I'm loving it, I'm still getting used to it, and it is very hard work, but for some reason, despite all the stresses, I still get up at stupid 'o' clock each morning to put my uniform on and go to another shift. We're thinking of writing a book, me and my course mates - all the things they don't tell you about being a student midwife! There's a lot, there's a books worth in fact - I'm copyrighting the idea now for the future!

Anyway, to Christmas! I had a lovely time with my parents, auntie and uncle and cousins. There was much food (more than I've ate in the three months I've been at uni in fact) and even more laughter.

New Year I spent with my girlfriends back at home! With us all being all over the country, it's so difficult to get us all together and spend time together - even for new year we couldn't all be there and we were all in the same place! A little new years resolution of mine though is to make more of an effort to see them, something always comes up but we must try harder!
Here are some pictures of a wonderful night which consisted of far to much wine, High School Musical watching at 2am (do you know it's been 10 years since Troy and Gabriella fell in love over New Years Karoke in Ski Chalet?! 10 Years!), and four hours sleep. It was a good night!

I've decided I'm going to write more of these chatty posts. They're probably the ones I enjoy writing most, and are the easiest to put together in my limited time and even more limited uni room. So for a while, till my exam anyway, you might not be seeing that much of me, but after that I will be back! I have many things to update you on!

I wish you all a very Happy New Year! May 2016 bring you health and happiness, and all that you could wish for!
