Work hard, play hard

It’s safe to say that the jump from first year to second year has come as a bit of a shock to me as I’m already swamped in assignments! But after getting myself into a stressed out mess (and almost completing an assignment), I’m realising that actually I’ll be fine – I am after all, a perfectionist and know that I’d never let myself get to a point that would mean not handing anything in.
Last night though, I enjoyed a rare night out. A very free and liberating night in Liverpool, with no thought of calories being consumed or burnt off. It was nice to dance the night away, dressed as a tiger as the carnage theme was circus, and enjoy what the city has to offer.
Going out drinking is a strange one for me – I’ve gone from dreading it and not drinking at all, to going out with just one drink, to thinking ‘why the f*ck am I not joining in?!’ I quite like the conclusion I’ve arrived at! I always tell people not to miss anything or say no because you’re too scared of what will happen. Well, what has happened is that I had a good night and I enjoyed myself. Nothing to fear really!
