5 Things I Don't Regret

I found it really difficult to think of five things I don't regret. It's not like I go about my life regretting everything I do but I just found it a challenge to think of things I truly don't regret doing. It's like them dodgy occasions when someone asks you to think of words to describe yourself. It's not easy. But I'm giving it a go. 

Here are five things I've done in my life that I truly don't regret doing. 

Going to university
I loved my three years at uni. If you're new around these parts I graduated last year with a degree in English and Linguistics and I couldn't be prouder. My pride is definitely not reflected by my certificate still lying in an envelope somewhere but believe me, I'm pleased. 

It's just an experience. It's three years of your life that very few people are able to replicate again. Once you leave, you gain responsibilities that you can't just drop whenever you want a week away or a lazy day in bed. You have so much freedom. Unless you're going to travel the world in later life or take some serious time off work you're not going to get that kind of freedom again. Enjoy it while you can! 

Spending two weeks of my life binge watching series 1-6 of Lost
One summer, I spent two weeks watching Lost. Every episode was conquered. I did venture out on nights out and to do a bit of shopping but Lost was my main priority. The first series remains to this day the best thing I have ever watched. I applaud those of you who watched it week-by-week I don't know how you did it!

Applying for a job on the last day before it closed despite thinking I'd never get it in a month of Sundays
You've just gotta try things. When you're applying for jobs apply for everything because you don't know where it will lead you. As it turned out, this was the only job I heard back from of all the ones I applied for. Now, I've been working at the school since September and I love it. I've met some fantastic people and had some great experiences. 

Starting a blog
I can not tell you how many times I almost started blogging and didn't. I think I even had this set up for about a month before I wrote anything on it. At first it felt weird to just be writing to myself about makeup. Especially on the first few posts that got no views never mind any comments.

These days, I don't know what I'd do with my time if I didn't blog. And I definitely don't know what I'd do with all the things I buy... who could I talk about them with?!

Impulse buying my bearded dragon, Hector
In my first year of uni at the end of the second lot of maintenance loan I had £200 left over. Really don't know how I managed that. I had £850 to last 4 months and I had £200 left over... see I've not always been a shopaholic.

My sister got 2 leopard geckos and I felt left out that I didn't have any pets. I'd seen these bearded dragons and actually tried to persuade Sophie to get one instead. Eventually I just went and bought one for myself. I think my Dad took me to Manchester to buy a rucksack and I wound up in a local pet shop parting with £200 on my beloved Hect.

I really wouldn't recommend impulse buying a bearded dragon, they're not as low maintenance as you might think. Your electric bills go up as they need constant heat and UV light and you can't be afraid of live food as that's what they eat.

Three years later, Hector is a spoilt little bugger and I love him so so much. He's probably the best thing I've ever spent money on.

  1. I've got a degree in English and linguistics too, I was really proud when I graduated as I found it pretty tough going. Worth it though :)
