It so crazy to think that this is my last year of university. In July, I'm going to be packing my up my things and leaving Oxford, the city I have spent nearly three years in and have actually become quite attached too. I'll be moving back home to London, where I'll have to grow up, get a 'proper' job and start paying back those pesky student loans. And before I can even start properly stressing about that, I have a 10,000 word dissertation to write in the next few months. So overall, it's safe to say that this is going to be a pretty stressful year for me!
I'm going to miss student life, and I'm definitely going to miss being in Oxford. It's such a lovely city to live in. I spent my first year of university living in student accommodation, which I can only really describe as quite an experience. And then in my second year I moved to a flat with two friends that I loved, but due to a particularly annoying landlord we decided to move again for our third year. So this September I moved into my new house. It's always strange moving into a house and knowing your not even going to be there a full year, but you still want to make it a comfortable place to be!
My housemates and I had so much fun decorating the house making it a nice and cosy place to live. We got lots of fairy lights and cushions from Primark's home section (which is great if, like us, you are shopping on a student budget) and found bunting in Hobbycraft to hang across out kitchen. My friend also gave me a huge vintage-style world map to put up on my wall - because every Geography student should have a map in their lives!
Here's a little peek into how I've decorated:
