I am writing this more as a benefit to myself rather than to readers, but it occurred to me that some of you may be going through similar situations and it’s always comforting to know that.
I am currently in the midst of writing my personal statement for university. For those of you who don’t know, a personal statement is a little bit like a CV. It states why you want to do that particular course and why the uni should choose you to go there. I am in the process of writing mine at the moment and the deadline for applications is 1st November.
However, I am having somewhat of an internal crisis – I can’t decide between two of my favourite things: Law or Psychology.
From the age of about 12 I have wanted to be a clinical psychologist. Because of my own experiences I wanted to use those to help others through mental health issues. Since then I have done Psychology GCSE and currently studying Psychology A level. I was all set for studying Psychology at university. Then when I went to choose my subjects for A level I wanted to do something which I had never done before and was different, so I chose Law. Since I started I have loved every minute of it – our teacher is amazing and the content is fascinating. I’ve learnt about legal careers and am desperate to become a Barrister.
The problem now, is that I can’t decide which subject I should study. I get similar good grades in both and enjoy both equally. I am tempted to do Law because that’s what I want to have a career in but with psychology I have the option of doing a 1 year conversion course to law afterwards and still retain the option of carrying on to become a clinical psychologist. If I do Law then I feel like I’m cheating on Psychology (do you get that?) but what if I do Psychology and spend the entire time wishing I was doing Law or vide versa? I can’t imagine not studying either one.
I just needed to have a little ramble to myself and maybe to others too. 🙂
Obviously no one can make the decision for me, but if you have any advice on how to make a decision which feels right, please please leave a comment below, along with your experience of making big decisions!
This is probably up there with one of my favourite holiday days ever! The place we were staying at had a small rowing boat which we could take out onto the lake, so that’s exactly what we did. We were out there for about 4 hours. The scenery was just beautiful and the water was so awesome the way it glittered in the sun light. We rowed around the lake and it was harder work than it looked! We then stopped at a cafe on the beach for a snack and went swimming.
It was such a good day and I thoroughly enjoyed it! See the photos below 🙂
It feels like way to long since I’ve done a fashion post! They’re a little tricker to plan because you have to take photos so I like to do it when I have enough time to do it properly! I thought I would show you some of the things I’ve bought over the last couple of weeks – links to each item will be at the bottom – enjoy!
This is my first Bardot top! I expected it to be really uncomfortable but it’s actually not too bad. I love styling this with black jeans, a denim jacket and some little black boots. It’s great for a casual evening or daytime look.
Checkered skater dress
I absolutely love skater dresses – they look great and can be dress up or down – so when I say this one I was hooked. It kind of reminds me of an outfit out of a fairy tale. I can’t wait to wear this when it gets a bit warmer with some white converses. H&M also have loads of other dresses in the same style so I’m definitely going to go grab some more!
Black denim dress
This was a bit of a push from my usual style but I tried it on and was pleasantly surprised by how it looked! It is bodycon so it very flattering around the waist. I have to say, the picture does not do it justice! I wore this with a checked shirt for a friends birthday dinner a few weeks ago and felt comfortable in it all evening.
This was a little treat to myself after the first week back at college after the holidays. I’ve been needing a small evening bag for ages and was so pleased when I came across this one in Accessorize. It’s the perfect size for evenings (or even day trips!) and just fits my phone and purse in.
These are a little daring and I have no idea when I’m going to end up wearing them! But I thought they were so pretty and I love the embroidery on the heels. The price for these was also amazing at (I think!) £16. They were from Primark so I cant give a link for them!

I haven’t written a blog post in almost a month so I thought I would do a quick life update to explain why I’ve been offline for a while.
I’ve been super busy with exams and work so not had as much time to sit down and write. My exams are only a few weeks away so I’m focusing on those for now. I’m also running for vice president of the students union at my college so that’s taken up a bit of time too.
However, I have an exciting trip planned at the end of May so you will hear all about that! I am also going to write some blog posts today to go up in the next few weeks and I will try to reply to comments when I can! Hope you’re all doing well 🙂
