Warwick uni open day

K K I TAKE BACK ALL I HAVE EVER SAID WARWICK IS MY NEW FAVE UNI 

I went to the open day yesterday and tbh when I was on the way I wasn’t expecting that much and I wasn’t really thinking of going there at all but I just went because it’s one of the few places that acTUally offers the exact course I want to do but ITS FREAKING AMAZING !!

After getting very very lost trying to actually find the place and some slight issues with the park and ride we finally got to the campus, and I was pretty set in my mindset that campus unis were nOpe and I wanted a city uni but I have since changed my mind. The campus is like a mini city – it has tONS of restaurants, banks, actual night clubs and even a mini supermarket that sells avocado houmous (!!!). Also the fact that I could literally live on site is so great because just think how late I could sleep in ???? And the accommodation is pretty cheap ay. 

Also the subject. I went there to look at classics with study in Europe which is basically classics but then I also learn Italian from scratch on top and then I get to spend my fourth year in Italy woop!! (Don’t like Italy quIte as much as France but I still love it and tbh if I can skip out on the french literature I’m cool with it). But yeah anyway. All the lecturers were so positive and enthusiastic and they all seem to be really interested in their subject and I think that’s so great because hopefully they can make sure I’m always interested too and that I love the subject like they do which would obvs be nice. Also they were v helpful and one of them was lowkey quite attractive mehehehe. 

Special extra: there’s a vegan society which looks bomb because who doesn’t want to sit around and discuss nice food tbh??????

Anyway I now really want to go here and I’m preparing myself to join 647382 extra curricular activities to make my personal statement fabulous and yeppo. 

Bye dudeeessss

life update: swimming n slightly warm grapes 


So my school is an absolute babe and I had my 183829th day off in about 3 weeks today which was amazing because the weather is so lovely and I actually don’t think I could deal with being stuck in a classroom all day. 

I spent 2 1/2 hours, two buses, a train and a longish walk getting to a cute river place where people from my school always go to meet up with what was actually a very random group (as in I’ve met most of them once and my friend randomly invited me) but it was actually so nice and we all got on so well even though no one really knew each other. 

We took a load of food with us and had a mini barbecue (aka they ate sausages and burgers and I sat there with 4 slices of bread lol) and we basically just sat around and swam and had some intense water/suncream fights and roasted to death because it was so hot. Also we left our grapes in the sun and can I just say warm grapes are not nice.

Leaving may have been a low point on the how-much-Ella-has-her-life-together scale because me and my friend Ellie were sat on the other side of the river and we couldn’t see our group and then suddenly we saw them all walking past us with all their stuff to get the train and we were both soaking wet and in bikinis. Basically it ended up with me shoving all my clothes on and ending up looking like someone had just tried to drown me and Ellie literally walking around in public trying to get dressed under her towel. We went to the McDonald’s toilets to sort ourselves out afterwards and just gonna say I felt pretty scatty. 

But anyway today was such a good day and my tan is On Point. And I didn’t even get sunburned. Yas.

ps I just rescued a butterfly from the bus and now I feel like a great person. 

life update: swimming n slightly warm grapes 

life update: oranges n toast

I went on an almost solo trip to Brighton aka one of my fave places today !! My dad quite often goes down there to sell at car boot sales and I got up at an unearthly hour this morning to join him and shop (by myself lol). 

I mostly spent the whole day wandering around in various shops. I bought this cute tiny backpack in urban outfitters and I was so proud of myself but when I tried it the buckles were in such an annoying place and they rubbed my arms to death so I returned it, sad times. But I also bought two really cute tops. 

The lanes were sooooo busy today, because it was so warm I guess, but I went in a couple of vintage shops and felt properly indie ;)))) and also found a place that sold really yummy avocado toast. 

Afterwards I went to meet my dad down at the beach (it was so packed) where the finish line of the London to Brighton cycle race that happened today was. That was great because there were tons of boxes of free oranges that they were giving out to the cyclists and I might have sneaked a couple (seven). Also I had a bomb smoothie to rehydrate. 

All in all it was very snazzy and I’ve done 20,000 steps and I’m slightly dead but oh well. 

HOPE Y’ALL HAD A GOOD DAY !!

snazzy places: bosham


This snazzy place isn’t exactly a well known place but I went here today with my dad and brother and I actually love it.

Basically it’s an area near where I live that’s part of a natural harbour (hugest and weirdest shaped harbour honestly) and there’s a long path round the outside where you can walk along the side of the water and it’s so pretty !!

My favourite part was this beach which was pretty out of the way. There were no other people there apart from a couple with their extremely cute dog (pictured – isn’t she an angel??). There were also a load of smallish oak trees along the back of the beach which had grown into some really cool shapes and also made pretty jazzy benches. I think it would be so much fun to go there in the evening with some friends and have a little fire and food and bonding time.

There were also so many animals – I saw rabbits, deer and even two baby foxes which were so freaking cute, as well as tons of butterflies and bees and things and basically I felt very at one with nature lol.

Also I am now starving and tbh I could eat a baguette or ten so bye my dudes.

bristol university open day

DON’T HAVE ANY PICTURES ITS A TRAGEDY!!!

But anyway I went to Bristol to look at the University and I’m in kind of a dilemma now. Because it’s so nice and I really want to go there. But I’m problematic with my subjects. 

Basically the city is amazing and there’s loads of greens spaces and cute cafes (nice vegan food literally would be two seconds away from my door) and the buildings in the centre are quite pretty and it looks like there’s quite a lot to do so I think it would be so much fun to live there ahhhh !!! Also all the halls of residences are grouped together so it’s like a little village and I think it would be easy to make friends like that and then we’d all be living close together and hhshshshs I really want to go. Also the arts department (which is where I would be is a street of little houses and each section has its own house and I think that’s so cute. 

I also really like the look of the subjects. I’m looking at French and Classical Studies and everyone I talked to about those subjects was really helpful and the courses look amazing too – for French I can do a unit on french fashion??? How great is that???? And I can spend a year in Paris???? My dilemma is that I kinda want to do French and Classics as a combined degree, which ordinarily would be fine but Bristol don’t freaking do it. Why. Don’t rly know what I’m going to do with my life but oH WELL !!!
