Life | Missing In Action

I know that I have completely lacked on blog posts lately and I can only put this down to finishing second year and being busy towards the end of my placement and Leeds Fest was a thing, both running around getting things ready and just being there.

Leeds Festival was one of the most incredible experiences of my entire life and I am so glad that I have finally experienced it. It was a weekend packed with wellies, a little bit of mud, a little bit of rain and some of the best people that I know, which was the perfect way to end second year. I got to see some amazing bands, some who I have seen before and some who I hadn't got the chance to see before.

I'm currently still struggling to remove the smell of campfire from every part of me and I still ache from sleeping in a tent and lugging everything across a field from the car to the campsite, but I wouldn't change a single part of it.

I was also nominated twice to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge, which is raising awareness for ALS/MND, so I did that earlier today and you can see that above. Enjoy!

Life | Me, Myself and I.

Sunday night I felt terribly guilty as I knew that I hadn't uploaded a blog post, but I ignored this and actually didn't think about it properly again till last night. Of course it has been in the back of my mind but it hasn't been my main worry for the past few days.

I realised last night, this week especially, that I need to take time out for me. I also didn't post as I actually didn't have anything scheduled for a post, and I've also been running around trying to sort things out for Leeds festival, last minute I know but I only bought my ticket on Monday.

I've always forgot that I need to take time out for myself every now and again, this isn't a new thing it's something I've always done since I was younger. However, as I'm becoming busier with university, although I've officially handed everything in for second year (woo!), and my life in general I'm starting to realise just how important 'me time' is. I've done this by just relaxing, spending time with friends who I haven't seen in over a year, and trying to have as few worries as possible.

I think the moral of this post is to make sure that everybody knows how important 'me time' is and to make sure that nobody feels guilty for taking some 'me time'.

Fall back in love with yourself and your own company.
