A day in the life of //University edition

Hi all! If you've been reading recently, you may know that I am currently running a little survey about you, the lovely readers, opinions on my blog and what you would like so see so over the next few weeks I would like to cover some of the results posted any and discuss any topics that people wanted me to cover.

I am incredibly flattered at some of the comments I have received, so you so much for the input guys, it's being really helpful, I'll take everything that everyone has said into consideration!

I have been asked quite a few times about my life at university and what I get up to. I spend most of my life at university and living away from home but I barely ever talk about it even though it's a really prominent part of my life so maybe this will satisfy come curiosities that you may have about my super unexciting life in Northampton in the form of these terrible drawings. I hope you enjoy what I get up to on a daily basis.

This is how I start every week; full of optimism and intentions of working hard but more often than not, this  happens.
All my lectures start at 9am. That's just not happening.
If once I get out of bed, I decide what to wear. I don't do the whole casual thing. I believe that dressing up shouldn't just exclusive to fancy nights.
Goddess Key inspires me.
I like to think my outfit choices convey an image of a free-thinking, confident young woman with a unique take on style but there's always this niggling feeling in the back of my mind that people might think I'm a bit nuts and try too hard.
Nothing wrong with looking flashy!
As a student you are expected you to go out and party and drink a lot and I like to believe that I do my fair part of this. As much as I like a good night out, I would rather spend my money on a lot of other things, I'm already a bit nuts anyway so I don't really need alcohol to have a good time. I'm ashamed to say but I find myself saying this to a lot of my friends...

I am a disgrace
A lot of my time spent not bumming around my flat in between lectures is spent outside our apartment block waiting. There seem to be some people in halls don't seem to understand how cookers work or don't seem to understand possible repercussions of hot-boxing their kitchens so when the fire alarm goes off (which it inevitably will at least once a week) we are marched outside to sit and wait for a fire engine to arrive in whatever state of dress or soberness we are currently in.

One of these people are possible perpetrators 

Weekends are very boring here. Northampton doesn't have the most amazing city center in the world and the night life isn't that brilliant and as a city girl, it comes as a bit of a shock that it's so quiet. The upside is that it's within an hour of London, Birmingham, Milton keynes, Coventry and a lot of other towns but that involves spending money that you don't have. Weekends are spent sleeping off a hangover, being lazy, catching up on work, or tumblr. At the end of the day, everyone in my flat tends to go a bit mad so we tend to do strange things like dressing up, making forts, playing strange games and getting creative and decorate the flat.
We're so cool.
Here is our rainbow. 
We stuck Nyan cat on it

And the other wall because that one is pretty snazzy too
So that's pretty much what I get up to at University. Sounds fun right? Hope you enjoyed it~
