Well, it’s been a while hasn’t it? I’ve not written a blog post in ages, and I figured it was time for a little life update.
I’ve felt guilty about neglecting my blog, but the reality is… This is a passion project, not my priority. As much as I love my blog, when I have so many other things to do, it can’t be my focus right now and that’s okay.
However, that doesn’t mean I’m abandoning my blog! I’ll still be writing when I can… I just don’t think it will be as frequent as I’d like it to be.
Now onto the life update!
Summer is well and truly over now, and don’t hate me but I’m already counting down the days till Christmas… Over the summer, I was lucky enough to travel to a few new cities. I wholeheartedly fell in love with Brooklyn and I’m already desperate to go back. I’ve got lots of travel content I’d like to share (once I finally get round to writing it up and editing photos), so keep an eye out for that!
Probably the biggest news of all… I launched Rust and Roots. It’s been a long time in the making, but I finally found the courage to start up my own wee freelance business. I very rarely feel proud of myself, but this is one of those rare occasions. I’m so proud of the business I’m building, and I can’t wait to see where it takes me!
Building on that… I’ve already secured two clients! They’re both wonderful independent businesses in Glasgow and I’m so excited to be working with them.
As for student life… I’m in my fourth and final year of my law degree. I don’t intend on doing the diploma year which is required to be a lawyer, but I am considering doing a masters in marketing.
Less than a month in to my final year of law and unsurprisingly, things are already pretty stressful. I’m in the middle of planning/researching for my dissertation, and I’m also attempting to juggle that with all the work for my classes. I’m finding it quite draining, but it has been nice to have a bit more structure in my week!
In terms of my mental health… I’m still struggling, especially with my depression. While I’ve not really made much progress in terms of my MH lately, I have changed GPs which I think is a big step in the right direction.
I was at the same practice for over two years and the doctors were never very helpful. I know I should’ve found a new GP a while ago, but I just didn’t have the energy or the self worth to do that for myself. I’m pretty sure I still don’t if we’re being honest, but thanks to the encouragement of a very kind friend I finally did it.
I registered at a new practice and I’ve had one appointment with them so far. It didn’t go as well as I’d hoped it would, but that’s okay. There’s other doctors for me to try. I’m hopeful that I’ll start making some progress in terms of getting a diagnosis for my chronic pain as well as hopefully improving my MH.
Definitely not a big life update, but we’re ending on this… I created a coffee station in our kitchen and I am obsessed. Coffee is a big part of my life, and our “wee” machine was taking up a lot of counter space in the kitchen… We spend a lot of time cooking, and I obviously wasn’t getting rid of the coffee machine… So I decided to buy a trolley from Ikea and rectify the situation! It’s so nice to have a wee coffee corner in the flat, and if you’re reading this please accept it as a formal invitation to come over for coffee.
Well that’s it! I think I’ve pretty much caught you up on all of the life things that have happened lately. I felt like this was a nice post to write before getting back into my usual kinda content. Fingers crossed it wasn’t too boring…
I’d love to know if you’ve made any big life changes lately and how they’re going. Catch me up on it all!
