My Scary Experience

So today I had this presentation for my piracy class which was super scary!

I really like the class but I just really hate presentations because I have anxiety as it is I don’t need it to be made worse with worrying about talking in front of a bunch of people.

Also for some reason (probably because it’s such a fun class) everyone always shows up so there are at least like fifteen to twenty people there.

And I am really not a fan of speaking in front of people especially if there are more then ten people. Plus, two of the people who were supposed to present with us could not make it.

It was a pretty scary experience and I stuttered and stammered and rambled A LOT.

But it was also kind of fun and I think it went pretty well for a first presentation. I learnt a lot from the experience and hope to do better the next time I have to present (which I’m hoping is never!)… maybe next time I’ll be less freaked out I hope…

Hope you enjoyed hearing about my little experience and let me know in the comments below how your first presentation went!!

Getting A Job At Uni: My Top Tips!

Working while at university is harder then it seems so here are a few very helpful tips to help you find a job!

Abi Louise Allen

A longer post today focusing on what so many students worry about…

I think we all know university can be a huge financial struggle for a lot of people, some people only get a small loan that doesn’t cover their rent, some get no loan and others are not in a position to borrow money when needed. So, for many people getting a job is a necessity while studying.

For me, my loan unfortunately only covers half my annual rent total and all the money I saved working over summer just wouldn’t be enough to cover 6 months rent, food money, social money and transport and therefore, I had to find a job.

Whilst most universities are based in cities, and you’d think finding a job because of this would be easy, for students this just isn’t the case, for many businesses aren’t willing to…

Why I Haven’t Posted In A Bit!

So I have my finals starting this week and as you can imagine I’ve been absolutely stressed out with finishing all my assignments and revising!

Image result for gif overworked

And to be honest WordPress does get distracting so I’ve tried to stay away from it so I don’t get distracted and can concentrate on my studies

But I’ll start blogging and catching up with your blogs as soon as I’m done!

Life Updates!

I know I haven’t been blogging much or keeping up to date with everyone else’s blog

Image result for please dont hate me gif

However, I thought I would update you with everything that’s going on right now (admittedly not a lot…)

Image result for doing nothing gif

I have a bunch of assignments due soon (one tomorrow and 3 next week) and I have a midterm test next week for Sociology so I’ll mostly be revising this week which is very hard to do when it’s cold and snowing and all you want to do is curl up in bed and hibernate.

I also tried out some vegan Indian food from Touch Of India this week which was really good! Touch of India is one of the only two Indian restaurants in St. Catharines (at least that I know of!) and I thought it would be fun to try out their lunch specials!

It was really good and it pretty affordable too which is always a plus! I would definitely recommend it if you’re ever in St. Catharines!

I also skipped a seminar for the first time since I’ve been in university and felt kinda guilty about it but it wasn’t too important and I really did not want to go. It was super cold and snowy and I just could not deal with it.

So that’s pretty much what’s been going on with me!

Dream Journal!

So today in Psychology we were learning about sleep and dreams and talked about different dreams and how they can be interpreted and it remind me of High School because my friends and I used to discuss the dreams we had that night and we would try to analyse them. It was really a lot of fun!

Coincidentally, just last week I had a really insightful dream that helped clear some things in my waking life and I remember thinking “sometimes I learn more in my dreams than when I’m awake”. Dreams have always fascinated me because I truly believe they have an important meaning behind them and listening to your dreams helps you bring your unconscious thoughts into your conscious which is sometimes what we really need in life. Dreams have a way of telling you things about yourself.

I would really love to explore my unconscious more and that’s why I decided to get a dream journal! I don’t remember my dreams as often as I would like to but my professor said the more we try to remember them the more likely we are to actually remember them.

I’ll keep you guys updated on any particularly interesting (or weird) dreams I have!

I Have Escaped The Rocks!

It’s official I no longer have to learn about rocks (kinda technically)! I switched my Earth Science course and now I’m taking a different Earth Science course about cosmology!! I hope it’s like Cosmos (the show) because I loved that!

I’m so excited for it!

Slightly More History Drama…

Firstly, if you’re new to my blog or haven’t been keeping up with my university posts please click here to catch up on what’s going on or you’ll have no idea what’s happening below!

So I was going over my results last week for my History Assignment 1 and what do I see in the comments section? My TA had written 5% off because I hadn’t handed in on time!

Image result for oh no they didnt gif

Well if you’ve been following my History class drama you’ll know that I didn’t hand it in on time because the damn History Department were trying to figure out how to add me to the seminars group online so I can upload the assignment and since it was 100% their fault they hadn’t added me to begin with I was told by my professor that they wouldn’t take off any marks for uploading it a day late!

Image result for this is your fault gif

So I immediately emailed my Professor who then told the TA marker to change it. He didn’t seem apologetic at all about the matter but my TA (who is super sweet and looks like nerdy Taylor Swift) wrote me an email immediately apologising since she didn’t know she I had been having trouble uploading the assignment which I thought was so sweet since she’s the only one who apologised (and very sweetly might I add!).

I really hope this is the last thing that goes wrong for me concerning History or anything in general!

I’m Free!

So my midterms finally ended yesterday and I’m finally a little more free! I’m getting some Korean food tomorrow (because I literally love Korean food so much!!) and planning on relaxing a little! I still have a psychology quiz left but it’s online and pretty easy!

The midterms went okay but not great. I’ll get the results next week!
