    This summer I really want to travel and socialize more.
    I want to travel internationally and nationally; particularly nationally as I have not seen many places in the UK with living so far south.

    ♥Exeter Uni Open day - 4th June ✓
    I thought Exeter Uni had a stunning campus! And also, in Exeter I had my first ever Nandos! Bonus!

    ♥13th June - 17th June - NYC ✓
    NYC was insane, I'm use to living nearby beaches and in a very rural area in the UK (Cornwall) whereas NYC is completely different. This was my second time in the States, and I learnt a lot about finance, business and culture. It was eye opening to be exposed to the different industries and the opportunities that I have to go and work in the future. I stayed in a hostel, in the most tiniest room ever, in a great location where a 24 hour pharmacy was located where I would sneak out for snacks at 2-3AM - due to jetlag! I felt safe walking around NYC alone, in my pajamas in the middle of the night! That's what I loved!

    ♥22nd June - 25th June - "3 cities 3 days" - Sheffield, Birmingham and Brighton ✓
    I went and saw university open days with a friend in which was eventful. We begun traveling from Cornwall -> Sheffield at 1:30PM however, arrived at our hotel in Sheffield at 10:30PM due to breaking down on the M4 near Chesterfield (which I believe is nearby Nottingham)! This was disastrous because we needed the car in order to get us to Birmingham the following day!! Coincidentally, the RAC guy knew someone who had their own garage and was able to fix it the next day; which was a huge relief! Sheffield itself was a nice town, in which the university was so modern however was juxtaposed by the medieval town. I loved how there was trams!! Birmingham was rather exciting, as it was my first time going into the Bull Ring! I loved the Bull Ring, shame we didn't have much time to look around, because we had to be in Brighton! Brighton was beautiful, we saw the old and the new pier and it was overwhelming how big Brighton actually is! I loved the university we visited (University of Sussex) as the campus was amazing, it had lots of amenities however the accommodation was a little bit of a let down.

    ♥17th July - 31st July - Dublin, Ireland (In the process of packing! )
    I will be jetting off to the city of Dublin on Sunday evening in order to undertake an internship for two weeks. I am super excited yet nervous at the same time! I'm already beginning packing

    Education wise...
    ♥Read "How to be a woman" by Caitlin Moran for A2 Lang/Lit (I will bring this to Ireland and read in my spare time whilst traveling..etc)
    ♥Write my personal statement (In progress)
    ♥Get my stationary all neat and tidy
    ♥Get my paper work tidy and put the unwanted/useless paper in the trash
    ♥Have some idea what my 5 choices for university are for 2017 entry
    ♥Collect AS results (eeek...)

    this looks awesome! i have also recently been to New York! in my opinion, it was interesting to see the comparison between the people in wealthy areas like battery park and the upper east side to the poorer, homeless people who would take drugs out in the public, having absolutely nothing and no meaning to their life.

    Yeah, stereo typically it's unexpected from such a "wealthy" country, the big gap between wealthy and people in poverty

    Update: I have had such a good sleep (well needed) and chilled out watching youtube and did a mini facial! And I packed for Ireland! Yaaay
