Let's start with a party.

Being 20 is like being in limbo. You're not a teenager anymore, and so can't use it as an excuse for anything and everything. But you also haven't quite reached the ripe old age of 21, when you can have one last massive party before becoming a proper adult and being unexcited by birthday's.

I turned 20 on Friday, and was spoilt rotten by my lovely friends and family. I even showed my new maturity by staying up until midnight to open my first present (a cute cushion to decorate my new uni room with, as well as a totally appropriate card courtesy of my housemate, Laura).

On Friday night, I went for a nice meal at Pizza Express with my close friends. The Pizza Express in Canterbury is right next to the river and is so cute! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who gets the chance! We all devoured a delicious meal (and a lot of wine!) that night and had a great time!

Saturday night was the real party, involving copious amounts of alcohol and a pinata! Yes, you read housemate got a surprise party pinata, which was very amusing when drunk! (I'm pretty sure we still have sweets and chocolate scattered around our garden). We all had a great night but suffered for it the next day!

So now the celebrations have ended and it is another 362 days until the big 21 (how exciting!). I was spoilt rotten for my birthday and massively appreciate all my cards, presents and birthday wishes from friends and family! THANK YOU EVERYONE!

And now I need to sleep for a week.

A bit about me

So for my first blog post, it seems only right that I confess a little bit about myself...

  • I live in Cornwall but study at the University of Kent in Canterbury. I love being at uni but sometimes find myself missing home comforts like Jess the cat, spending time with family and friends and a Sunday roast!
  • I am part of the university's netball club. Joining UKC Netball was definitely one of my better ideas, as without it I wouldn't have the amazing group of friends I do now! Also, UKC Netball have more social's than we do matches...
  • Being a typical student, I like to whinge. About anything. And everything.
  • I love going on adventures and getting out of my normal work/study routine. These normally include girly holiday's, night's out in exciting city's and discovering new places.
  • I secretly love cheesy music...

  • I can easily waste hours of my day Facebook stalking, browsing Twitter and online shopping. (Especially when assignments are due in!)
  • I work for the Student Union in a small cafe.
  • I love baking and cooking, but am normally too lazy to do either and so live off ready meals and unhealthy snacks at uni.
  • I HATE being bored.
  • Fancy dress is more fun than it should be at my age.
  • I'm addicted to taking photo's on night's out, even if only to have a laugh when looking through them the next morning...

So there's a bit about me! I hope you enjoy reading my blog. I'll try and remember to post as often as just gives me an excuse to do fun and interesting things!
