Home for the holidays / End of semester reflection

It feels like yesterday I started my first semester at university, but already I am home for Christmas! So much has changed within the past few months, and I feel quite pleased with the progress that I have made - for example, I now make myself proper dinners like a grown up!

When I first moved into my flat at Lucia Foster Welch Halls, I thought I would feel homesick the moment my parents left, but I think excitement over ruled that for the first few weeks. It wasn't until I visited home for the first time that I realised how homesick I was. Luckily, the homesickness did start to get easier, and I started to accept Southampton as my second home. I made my room feel cosy (You can see my previous blog post on how I did that) and my lovely flatmates made me feel at home.

My flat mates are the best. I feel like we have known each other a lot longer than the short period time that we have.


Upon arriving home I was told that I was working for 12 days in a row, and believe me I wasn't sure I could handle 8 1/2 hours a day for 12 days! Buuut somehow I managed it! For those of you who don't know, prior to my move to Southampton I worked for a family in their sweet shop for 5 years, and at Christmas time I worked in their Christmas shops also. Here's a glimpse of what I have been staring at for the past 12 days;

Hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas holidays and is eating their bodyweight in chocolate. :)

Bye for now, Lauren
