MARCH IN REVIEW

Friday, 30 March 2018

As you should (hopefully) know, I have been reviewing my months. I feel like whenever I look back on the year, I can only remember the big things I have done, and I don't really remember the small things. So, how has March been for me? 

March has been a bit of a mixed bag for me. In terms of uni work, there's nothing major to talk about. I picked my subjects for second year, so all going well, I should be studying marketing and economics in second and third year, and graduating with one of the two, or both. I have had a few class tests, which is good as it gives me a chance to get everything sorted for exams and a chance to review what I already know. As I was saying last month, I had a lot of group essays and presentations to do, which I hated, as most of the people in my groups are feeling demotivated due to the time of year it is, and so don't try as hard.

I took this picture of Glasgow at the last minutes of sunset.
The snow that came at the start of the month really hit hard. Uni was cancelled for three days, and so I didn't do much uni work for those three days. I did watch "To Rome With Love" though - I have to say it wasn't the best Woody Allen film I've seen, but it was easy watching and distracted me from the snow outside for two hours!

I was feeling so happy this day and I love being able to remember feeling happy!
I read a lot this month too, I finished Around the World in 80 Days by Michael Palin, and then I started reading The Lost City of Z. The Lost City of Z is such a lovely movie that makes me feel so happy and warm inside about the life of Percy Fawcett, and I'd highly recommend it. It's a book that you can't put down and forget about for a few days though, so I'm going to try and read it every single evening instead of spending an hour mindlessly scrolling through Twitter, probably in the summer when I'm less busy. I also bought As Old as Time, which is a Disney Twisted Tale, which I think I'll leave for when I go on holiday to the Dominican Republic to read. I'm currently 4 chapters into White Teeth by Zadie Smith, which I have been reading for half an hour before bed each night.

One of my family members is sick and is in the hospital, which is something I don't really want to get into, but I had to take a day off work. I spent that day with my sisters and it was a nice day, I love spending time with them.

I got a new pink coat, which I'm absolutely in love with.
I also dyed the blonde parts of my hair purple. It was just semi permanent so it's fading, but I absolutely love the burst of colour and I'd definitely considering getting it done permanently after my holidays! I decided that I wanted a change, and if I wanted to do it I might as well just do it. I'm trying to apply that mentality to my life - if I want to do something, just do it and don't pay attention to what others around you have to say.

I booked to go for afternoon tea with my mum next month, and me, my mum and my sister went to the ballet to see Swan Lake in Edinburgh! It was lovely and I'm so excited to one day go back to the ballet. I also went to a cinema in the West End of Glasgow with my dad to see The Royal Tenenbaums (which is in my top favourite Wes Anderson films). We went to Wagamama before and I had a chicken katsu curry which I always have when I have Japanese food. I had a lovely day out with my friends, Chloe and Kirsty, and we went to Pizza Express for dinner and then to Wetherspoons for drinks afterwards. I'm so excited to go on holiday with them! Me and Francesca have been looking more into when I go to Italy and what I'm going to do there - and she's been looking at what her and her friend will do when they're here!

Favourite film of March: I, Tonya. It was so interesting to hear about what happened from Tonya Harding's perspective. I really like ice skating, and once I heard about this case (as I wasn't born in 1994), I instantly thought it was a conspiracy and Tonya obviously knew, but now the film has slightly changed my perspective on the situation! My favourite song this month has either been The Violet Hour by Sea Wolf or Salvatore by Lana Del Rey.

All in all, I think March was quite good for me, the only bad thing that's causing me loads of stress is uni! How was your month?

Thanks for reading,
