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.
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 !!
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.
Soooo I have had pretty much the most boring week of my life because I have study leave but I’ve actually finished my exams and I have nOthing to do. I have barely left my bed. So I have nothing to write about. BUt I thought it might be a cool idea to start a little series of snazzy places I’ve visited, starting with the Tate Modern in London.
I last went here kind of a while ago with my mum and sister because we felt like we needed some more culture in our lives and because I like art and it is dEfinitely my favourite museum kinda place I’ve been to. It’s all modern art obviously and they have pieces from quite a lot of famous artists like Monet and Picasso which is cool, and also my fave Matisse who I’m about to do a French project on I think…
They also have more obscure pieces which I love because they’re all so original. I gotta say, I hate it when I go to modern art galleries and I hear people saying ‘oh I could easily do that, that’s so simple’ because nO???? Would you have ever thought of creating something like that? Would you have gone grocery shopping and been inspired to make a piece of art? You have to appreciate their imagination and uniqueness.
Anyway, we didn’t get as much time there as I would have liked because our parking ticket ran out but at least it gives me an excuse to go again ayyyy.
Also, other cool things about the general area: there’s a Pret A Manger really close by aka the only chain restaurant anyone ever needs and I saw a guy blowing giant bubbles right outside and what more could you want in life?
Does anyone else have a favourite artist or gallery or general snazzy places they like??
The last few days have been pretty uneventful but also kinda nice. I’ve been on loads of walks in the country (so many flowers) and this really nice beach. Except on the beach walk my whole family thought it would be freezing so we all wore jeans and it was actually so boiling I eventually had to strip and walk around in just a bralette in public eek.
My mum and I went to this little place with a few cute shops yesterday and they were really cool and kinda quirky. They sold things like old french books with pretty pictures and poetry written on little cards and vintage milk bottles. Also I had some amazing homemade lemonade and chocolate and walnut cake.
This afternoon my little cousins talked me into playing ‘extreme hide and seek’ which was hilarious because I am a boss at hide and seek and I sat in a bush for an hour because they couldn’t find me. But oh well, I used the time to make an ivy crown and turn myself into a forest nymph. It was cute.
