On Finishing A Levels & New Beginnings

Wow, it's been almost a month! Remember when I said I thought study leave would give me more time to blog? Well, I really should have known better. Every day was spent revising and, the closer it got to exams, the more intense it got meaning I had zero time to sit down and type, despite how much I wanted to.

But my A Levels are over!! I had my last exam on Wednesday and I honestly can't tell you what a relief it is. Coming out of my last exam was definitely a bit of an anti-climax as I didn't immediately feel a sense of euphoria that I'd predicted I would. Instead, quite honestly it felt really odd, almost surreal. Nevertheless, celebrations were in order and so, myself and my friends who had finished our exams by Wednesday, went out for drinks in Richmond.

I absolutely adore Richmond but, then again, who doesn't?! It's such a beautiful place and, sitting by the river with a glass of Pimms in hand, I felt really peaceful for the first time in months. The past few months have been really tough. And not just because of the studying, although revising for such a long period was truly horrific! In the middle of it all, Harry and I broke up. I don't want to write much about it, as I don't think it's fair on either of us to do so, but needless to say that has been incredibly painful and hard to deal with in such a stressful time. But I saw him yesterday and we left things truly amicably, which in some ways makes it all a little easier. I also have so much to look forward to this summer, so I'll be keeping myself busy for sure.

I'll stop myself there before I end up writing pages to make up for not having written here for nearly a month, and I don't think anyone wants to read that! I just wanted to get down where I'm at right now, and to let you all know that I am alive! I hope you have wonderful, wonderful weekends and I promise I'll be back soon xoxo
