10 facts about me.
Welcome, or welcome back if you read my previous post. I decided to do an introduction type post, so without further ado, here are 10 facts about me:

01) I am currently in my first year of 6 with The Open University working towards a degree in Psychology with Counselling.

02) I have two sisters - one is three years younger than me, the other is five years older than me.

03) I have what I always call very 'real' dreams, and used to confuse them with memories a lot when I was younger.

04) I am the worst morning person ever. If I don't set alarms or ask people to wake me when they get up I will sleep for most of the day. This is something I would like to change.


05) I have a German Shepherd called Elsa (who by the way was not named after Disney's Elsa)

06) My goal for the future is to have a job that I love, working from home or a job that will fit easily around my life and future children, also to have my own office in my home.

07) I hate silence, it makes me uncomfortable and I feel as though I have to fill it by talking, usually about something unimportant or uninteresting.

08) I never learnt my times tables and only within the past few years, started to master reading a clock. For some reason these are things I just didn't pick up well as a child.

09) My favourite animal is the Giant Panda and I was so happy when I found out that they are no longer endangered, I also saw one at Edinburgh Zoo last year and almost cried with happiness. (They have been downgraded from Endangered to Vulnerable)

10) My favourite place to go away is to my Grandparent's, they live in a village and it's such a beautiful area, me and my partner go every year. It's so relaxing being there and I feel so comfortable there as my family used to go up to visit a lot when I was young.

I hope you enjoyed this insight into my life, as I found this very difficult to do, it's hard to think of interesting things to say about yourself without over sharing. I would love it if you left an interesting fact about yourself in the comment box below.

Hello and Welcome

Hello and welcome, to anyone reading this. My name is Lauren and I'm 20 years old.

This will be a quick and brief post just to introduce myself and to explain things a little. Please bare with me whilst I get used to fitting blogging back into my life and whilst I play around with the look of my blog until I find something I like.

Around two years ago I ran a blog with the same name, and roughly two weeks ago I finally decided to start blogging again, so I simply deleted the old blog and started a new one under the same name, this is because I liked the name I had before and wanted to keep it, but wanted to start fresh because I wasn't happy with just continuing my old blog after two years, as I felt as though my writing in the past did not properly represent me as a person.

I am re-starting blogging as I enjoyed everything about running my own blog, the only issue was that I hated the content, I felt a pressure to fit myself into a specific area of blogging, and that didn't sit well with me, all I wrote about was beauty products which I reviewed after trying once or twice and honestly I found it boring, but I enjoyed the writing side of it so much that I just got on with it, also my previous blog was a beauty blog and I found that I was bored of being stuck talking about one thing all of the time.

So what should you expect from this blog? Posts about things that I am interested in, and honesty. I am not going to limit the blog to a specific 'genre' as my interests change just like everyone else and I don't want to be stuck writing posts about just one topic. My next post will be up soon and will be a '15 facts about me post' for a chance for you to get to know me better.

I hope you enjoyed reading.
Please leave comments as I would love some feedback, also if you have any questions I'm happy to answer them in the comments.
