I just went for a run and I feel so fresh. If you know me then you know I do not exercise bar walking because I hate it. It's embarrassing when you're my size but today something just clicked and I was like no who cares what people think and I'm so glad I did because I'm so happy. Look at how much my skin is glowing. ☺☺☺

Hello all. Sorry I haven't posted in a while, the fresh sea air of Wales has done me good and I've been able to sleep before or around 3 every night which is a massive achievement. I haven't been up to much recently. I've spent a lot of my time with my family which has been lovely. I've also seen all my friends twice which has been gorgeous. I haven't seen two of them since last summer and as soon as I saw them it just felt like old times again. They say you can pick your friends but not your family and when it comes to my friends I've definitely picked wisely. They are my family. Just missing Habbiba, she's stayed up in uni over the holidays and her precense has been missed. I've known that girl since I was two years old and it is so weird not to have her around but I see her regularly in Surrey as she's in Guildford and I'm in Egham (half hour on the train) and we're always in contact.

In my previous post I said I would start my essay but that hasn't happened. I will start it this week though, the thought of going through what I went through at Christmas (long story, won't bore you) with my essays again fills me with dread. I've been reading a lot, not the required reading for my course though which is bad, but a lot of fiction and I've fallen back in love with every aspect of literature. I've always adored it and sometimes I wish that I had read it at Oxbridge. I'm clever enough to have got the grades needed but was just never motivated and they would've written me off straight away because I wasn't good at maths. I had always been wary about classics as I tried them numerous times when I was younger but never really enjoyed them but I just finished Pride and Prejudice and now I'm starting North and South and I'm in love. I adored Pride and Prejudice as I saw aspects of myself in both Lizzie and Darcy. I''ve always been really quick to judge and if I dislike someone that's it, no going back from there. My pride is also one of my biggest flaws. My pride stops me from doing things I should jump at because I don't want to look like an idiot in front of people I know and respect and most importantly to myself. However I am overcoming this but I do need to work on my prejudice a lot. Fingers crossed I can learn from Lizzie.

Anyway that's all for now folks, I'm off to read North and South (I read that it's a bit like pride and prejudice for socialists and that's right up my street) but I'll be back soon. All the love and peace out. X
