May: plans, to do lists and a look forward to the month

May: plans, to do lists and a look forward to the month // LUCY-COLE

It’s officially my birthday month!!!! I can’t quite believe we’ve rolled round to May already. I really loved writing my February Reflections and looking forward to March post a few months back, so I thought another little ramble was certainly due.

Not a load happened in April, I enjoyed some time back at home off uni at the beginning of the month, then got back into the swing of things for my final term. With just two essays to write until the end of the third year, everything has definitely been a lot less stressful which I’m grateful for as things come to an end. In terms of my mental health, I found myself having a bit of a wobble as the stress of job hunting dawned on me. Throughout April I found myself applying for a lot of graduate jobs, and with friends securing full-time work after uni I felt the pressure. A trip back home and a few mediocre interviews I’m beginning to calm down and realise what will be will be.

May is going to be quite possibly the maddest month so far. I have a Sports Awards evening this Friday which is basically some food and a night out, and next Thursday I’ll be at the annual Netball ball, probably crying my eyes out at the thought of leaving all of my netball best friends. The hangover can’t be a long one because that weekend is UEA’s annual Pimp My Barrow event – it’s a super fun day event where you dress up, along with dressing up a wheelbarrow and have a good old day drinking session before a night out!! It’s all in aid of Cancer Research and is a real big event down here in Norwich. Following that, I’ll be spending a weekend at Centre Parcs with all my family to celebrate my 21st which I am SO excited for. And finally, I’ll be ending the month in Prague with a few of my coursemates to celebrate surviving uni together!

So.. yeah, I’m pretty busy.

I’m so excited for all the fun I have, and I’m glad I have such a fun-packed month before graduating and stepping out into the ‘real world’ come June, but there are a few to-do’s this month…


Do you have any plans for May?
