Hi Loves, how are we all? Good, I’m glad we’re all alive and living. Anyway, I wanted to write a post about why I’ve switched degrees. If you read my blog then you will know I write a monthly update about my journey with The Open University. This post, however, isn’t a monthly update. It’s more of a “what and why”. If you want to … Continue reading My Open Degree
I guess this is one of them blog posts where if it was a video I’d start with a heavy sign and make the thumbnail a massive ‘the honest truth’ Some of you may have noticed I haven’t been as active lately on my blog. Some of you might not even care and be glad I finally shut up! I feel like I’ve lost me. … Continue reading Life Update…
Hi again, it’s only me. I know shocker I’m actually posting something. I just thought it would be a nice thing to just update you all on where I’ve been and why I’ve been so quiet. Firstly, I’ve just been super busy at work. All the big bosses are now in big meetings in another office, so prep has been mad for the ladies I … Continue reading Where I’ve Been?
OU July Update We’re onto EMA’s already, how quick has this Open University year gone?! To say July has been different to June is an understatement. June was so full of worry and annoyance that I didn’t really know what to do anymore or where my journey was going. It’s safe to say I was near to throwing in the towel. I wasn’t sure if … Continue reading OU Monthly Update – July
You’ll notice as of recent my blog has been extremely quiet. This is because reality has hit me super hard. I have two essays due in early July with Open University, work is very busy at the moment and I’ve just started on my Bipolar medication. Not only has my blog taken a hit but the gym has as well. My Bipolar medication totaled me at the … Continue reading Madness Update

I’ve decided to start my first series on my blog called “OU Monthly Update”. This is so anyone who is interested in my story can keep track of how … Continue reading OU May Monthly Update
So far this weekend has been amazing! Other than the stress of an essay for OU – boring! My mum came down to visit yesterday and we had an adventure to find some new plants. I’ve read online that plants are very helpful when it comes to mental health (I’ll write a blog post on this once I have this essay out of the way!). … Continue reading Brunch with Mum
When I transferred back to The Open University in February I was a nervous wreck when it came to academics. My confidence was shot and I thought I was 100% going to fail the exam I sat in April. I wasn’t retaining any information because my head was so full of dealing with this bi polar diagnosis that I couldn’t clear my mind of thoughts. … Continue reading Getting inspired again!
Being an Open University student I get asked this one question a lot “how do you stay motivated?” Staying motivated is the biggest struggle you will ever have with the Open University. A time will come were you will have two essays due, quarter end at work, social events with friends and a mother constantly calling you complaining she hasn’t seen you in forever even … Continue reading How to stay motivated
Dear The Open University, Errrm I’m back … sorry? Too say I feel like a boomerang is an understatement. After studying with the OU for a year part time, I moved to a brick university. After a term at a brick University I realised I’d made a massive mistake and now I’m back. I’ve been told by countless amount of people that my decision wasn’t … Continue reading Dear Open University
