I thought it was about time I came and wrote a wee life update. I share a lot online, but of course not every single aspect as it occurs – so I thought I would write a quick blog post in case you’ve been wondering what’s going on (probably not but here it is!).
The last major life event in which you guys would have heard about was my study abroad. I’ve been home for a couple of months now and started back at Robert Gordon University for second semester – we are already in Week 4 or 5, not sure how that has happened… I have deadlines already and I’m not ok with that.
However, I have loved being back at my home University and seeing all my friends again, as well as living in Aberdeen again.
This leads me onto my next major life event – I moved in with my boyfriend.
“But you’re only, like, nineteen?”
No one has blatantly asked me this question, but I’ve read it on peoples faces when I’ve told them I’ve moved in with my boyfriend. If you don’t follow me on my Instagram where Cameron is featured most often, then you won’t know that Cameron is my boyfriend. Before I left for my study abroad last September, we made the decision to move into a flat together when I returned. Cameron lived at home for the first semester and commuted into University as he lives close enough that this is possible.
The last month of my study abroad consisted of searching through Zoopla and RightMove for the perfect flat for when I return. This meant Cameron had to even go to a flat viewing himself while I was in Germany and send me videos as I couldn’t be there in person. This ended up being a bit more difficult so we waited until I was officially home where I would have around a month to find a flat, get the paperwork sorted and move in before semester two started… The stress was real!
However, we did it! One of the flats I had favourited while in Germany was still available when we were looking, so we viewed it and fell in love. We now have our own wee flat and I love it. I promised a flat tour on my YouTube channel, but it has been hectic, not mentioning the fact we didn’t have wifi for the first three weeks we moved in! But I promise, it will eventually be up. I have filmed it but not got round to editing it yet. I have also added a few more features and things into the flat since filming, so I might re-film it once the flat is 100% settled into.
So why did I think moving in with my boyfriend at nineteen was a good idea? Not that I need to justify or give any excuses as to why I would want to live with my boyfriend (if you don’t imagine yourself living with your partner in the future, then what’s the point?!). But Cameron and I have been together since we were fifteen, we were pretty sure we liked each other enough to live together. We had spent a lot of time together last year (I basically nursed Cameron for a couple of weeks in my tiny student accommodation room), so we knew each others annoying habits already – meaning there weren’t going to be any surprises. I can’t imagine myself with anyone else (ok cringe, I’ll stop in a second), so why would we wait?
Next step is just to get dog together – don’t worry, I’m working on that one.
We’ve been in the new flat for over a month now, and Cameron has been an absolute gem of a flatmate. He does the washing up, always puts the toilet seat down AND washes his hands all the time – not to mention he makes a good cup of coffee.
After May, I will be finished second year of University. That is crazy and nearly beyond belief, but it’s true and I’m having to deal with that reality. In my third year of University, I have the amazing opportunity to go on a 12 month placement in the business industry. This made me very nervous but also excited.
I interviewed for an Aberdeen based company a couple of weeks ago, and it was my first “formal” interview for a full time job, and I’m going to be completely honest with you – I was shitting it. However, once I arrived, it was so welcoming and I relaxed into the interview a lot more.
After some intense (which is expected) questions, and some practical tests, I left feeling like I had messed it up. I don’t think there is ever a “perfect” interview, but mine definitely wasn’t. However, I got a phone call the next day to tell me I got the position!
As of June, I will start my first full time, grown up job and I can’t wait! I’ll have the weekends to myself to plan and do what I like – which is very new for me! I look forward to this next adventure in my life, and I’m excited to take you guys along with it too! Wish me luck!
Now it’s just back to the books to pass second year!
Thank you for reading!
Until next time…
