Moving To Brighton!

Dear all my readers (if there are any left!),

MAN has it been a long time?! I can only apologise profusely; I couldn't get my laptop set up in my new place so its been a very stressful time. However, here I am with the biggest news ever. I have moved to Brighton!! I have never even visited Brighton before I moved here, only read other blogs about people who live here and watched vlogs of fellow residents. I thought I would write a blog post about my recent shenanigans and introduce you all to my new life here.

First of all, here is my humble abode! It's not bad for a student kind of ting, and personally I think it's rather cosy!! If you ever feel like making something a lot cosier than it is, just plaster the room in fairy lights and bobs your uncle!

Secondly, my flatmates. We actually don't even have a group photo yet, but here are a selection from night's out and a cute little collage of us wearing cool sunglasses...

I have been blessed with these bunch of crazies who make me laugh, smile, and have already helped me create a handful of lifelong memories. If it weren't for this lot, I don't think I would have settled in half as well as I have.  I have met such different and exciting people who I think will be in my life for a very very long time. I was always so scared to come to University after taking my year out purely because I think I forgot how to socialise. However, coming here and meeting all these people has made me realise its okay to feel scared and actually people really won't be that scary towards you! Being here, I feel somewhat at home. In fact, I don't think I've been this happy for a very long time, and its the most amazing feeling ever!

So, what have I been up to since being here might you ask? Well, I've had a lot of late nights (all nighters in fact), a lot of alcohol (sorry Mum!), parties and most importantly the studying of course...

Brighton is SO beautiful as a place; it's a 'feel good' town with interesting people, lovely little quirky shops and markets and the coolest pier I think I've ever been on. Here are a few pictures I've taken along my little trips to town. I recommend to anyone if they ever come here to go to the Laines, which might I add is absolutely beautiful at Christmas!

I love my somewhat new life here in Brighton. I was apprehensive at first, but I am genuinely having the time of my life and cannot wait for the new year here, and the years to come too.

Peace and love, and apologies again for my lack of uploading especially to those who have been messaging me wondering where I had got to! I am back though, I promise.

Have a good rest of your week,

Soph x
