This week has been suprisingly sunny, and fairly warm (compared to recent weeks) – which, in my opinion, is brilliant! I’ve also been extremely cheery this week! 🙂 I’m not keen on winter and the minute the sun starts shining and the shops start to sell their summer ranges I get very excited. Summer is my favourite time of the year. I pine for those summer nights where it is still light at 10pm; when you can go out without a coat and feel the gentle breeze of summer air; long summer holidays with no stress whatsoever – its practically what I live for.
Unfortunately, we are still a few months away from experiencing my favourite time of the year. I have important exams in May/June, which I need to do fairly well on. Thankfully I’m not finding them too stressful at the moment – in fact, I’d say I’m unusually relaxed considering I generally stress myself out so much to the point that I basically hibernate in my room for a few weeks. Thankfully, that does not seem to be the case at the moment. The thing that keeps on pushing me through and motivating me is the thought of a 3 month holiday afterwards, with lots of sun and adventures. My boyfriends family have just booked a holiday house in Cornwall, and I am going with them – this is so exciting for me, as it will be the first time I’ve been away with his (or anyone elses) family. *squeals with excitment!*
As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been feeling very happy this week. I can’t figure out why this is such a sudden change. I know that you don’t need a reason to be happy, but I feel like it happened more or less over night. I recently got a SAD (seasonal affective disorder) lamp. This is a small lamp which emits blue light. I’m supposed to use it every morning for at least 20 minutes, which I have managed to do 4/5 days this week so far. I’m not sure whether it is actually working, or if its just the psychological effect of thinking that its working. Either way; I think it’s working! I’m actually quite suprised it’s had any effect in such a short time of using it.
Anyway, that ended up being longer than I thought it would be! Turned into a bit of a ramble but hey, that’s what blogs are for!
