This is a no hate zone, if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything. Feel free to educate me, share your opinions, and beliefs. As long as you don't hurt yourself, or others, mentally or physically. Anything goes. It's really quite simple... be nice.
Again… I graduated 2 years ago and now going back for post grad. It’s an intense course (post graduate diploma in adult nursing RN) 37 1/2 hours a week, so like a full time job except I study when I get home instead of chilling with a beer with the footy on the tv. Omg I may cry.
I’m not sure my heads in the right place for this yet, I just don’t have the confidence or energy. I’m really worried its another thing I’ll fail at. It’s a three year degree crammed into 2 years with post graduate level thrown in! :,( omg. Alot of people don’t make it, I dont mean they die! They drop out because it is too intense. I’m already behind on the work I have to do, to prepare, before I start the course!
My man friend moved back home 80 miles away because he fell out with my parents, so now I have that to contend with, my parents think we broke up but are still friends. We tried being friends but we ended up in bed together, and no point being friends with benefits if were not sleeping with anyone else, sooo were in a secret relationship, that everyone knows about except my parents :D I don’t care if they find out to be honest, I am 24 for Christ sake. I’m still here, I didn’t move with him and I’m doing this course, they need to back off.
This means if he visits he has to stay in a hotel, and I won’t be able to go to him as much, because I’ll need to study. 2 years. I’m saving every penny I can ready to move when I’ve finished.
Went through a very long drought, but now I’m back on it, I’m going to make stuff, draw stuff, create stuff, and I can’t wait!
I’m going away this weekend to Southampton and when we get back Manfriends taking me to town to get some bits from artsy crafty shops and I’m so excited!! I’ve been wanting to get crafty again for aaaages! but been on a down time, and not really had the money, but found stuff to do cheap and going to make my own paint to save money!!
I’ve been trying to figure out things I could do and thanks to a great website it’s triggered some ideas. I was thinking (you know, when you’re suppose to be sleeping) and I had to calm myself down, I had an idea, and it unraveled into something extremely complicated. Before now, I would of attempted it, and given up because it was too complicated, time consuming, cost a lot and I’d make mistakes all the time.
I now have the confidence to keep it simple, less mistakes would be made, It’s quicker, cheaper, and I’ve realized, SCREW perfect, it’s the little mistakes that make things unique.
I will keep you posted!! Now, I have to go and re organize our bedroom into a creative hub!
Awww thanks hun! Really made my day! glad you found it! It’s useful when you find people with similar stats. There’s a pretty standard set of tips that go round.
Drink loads of water, I aim for at least 2L a day, I don’t always make it, but helps you fill up, detox and makes your skin looovely.
Green Tea - tastes like bin bags but helps your metabolism and you can get flavoured ones!!
Do more than you usually do, exercise wise and up your intensity every so often, when it gets easy, or you get bored.
I used to do weight watchers before the pro points and I was just too hungry, try and divide your points over 3 meals and two snacks. If you workout or go to the gym eat an hour before and within half an hour after, high protein.
Don’t let bad days get you down, this is why it never worked for me before, be positive, don’t let anyone bring you down.
Don’t deprive yourself, never say you can’t have something, just ask yourself if you really want it, If its worth it, what you can do to work it off, I’ve literally walked to the kitchen and stood in the hall having 5 minute debates with myself over whether I want something, I usually think it’s too much hassle lol
Anyways, I’m going on, if you need anything let me know!! :D good luck, I’ll look forward to your posts!
