Instamonth #April2016

Ok so it's two weeks into May I know but I actually love putting together these posts so I don't care how late it is! I've realised how much they show me the good things that have happened in the past month. Something I can look back on when I'm feeling low.

I hope you liked the guest post brought to you by Cristina last week, uni has taken over my life, as expected. Science is what I want to do with my life I think... I'm so close to finishing now! One more exam... then I'm gonna sleep for like a week. I'm not posting as much to instagram or twitter as well as here, obvs, I just don't have time or energy to, but I've been updating sporadically and according to my insta it's been a good month!
me as Tinkerbitch for a Disney themed 21st || all hail vegan pizza || funky 80s night out
bedroom at my parents has been redecorated finally! || dissobitch || me if I was a watercolour of Rosalind Franklin
soya cappuccinos getting me through disso || graveyard walks || newish reads

Remember the painting of Rosalind Franklin I shared? Well now thanks to Snapchat you can see what I'd look like if I was actually a painting of Rosalind Franklin. Thank you shapchat for bringing light to these dark days.

The books were new reads like a month ago... but I've now read them all so can highly recommend! My mam and sister bought me the Happiness Is... book because I'm a miserable bitch they know uni is stressful and are always cheering me up! Bigger thank you to my mama for always being there for me! The Lovely Bones is a ... depressing book for lack of a better word, but it is. I liked reading it though. The Kind Worth Killing is awesome! You think from the blurb, and the start of the book its about one thing but then it all goes to shit and you're like WHAAAT IS HAPPENING?! It was better than many of the thrillers I'd read, but still not the best.

I finally said goodbye to my dissertation/project. Over a year of work and its gone, in 5,000 words, a poster, a CD, and a presentation. The two months spent in the lab in France doing the actual experiments was by far the best part!

I hope you're all having a lovely May, miss you all, *hugs*

  1. Congrats on finishing up your Dissertation project! That's like the UK version of a senior thesis right? For Bachelor's or Master's? In the US Dissertation is for PhD so I always get confused when I see you UK folk talking about them, haha.

    Your school runs so late though! My graduation ceremony was April 30! Your semester must start later, but still ending in May sounds crazy to me. Congrats on almost being finished!!

  7. Hope all is well Amber! I know you're finished your exams now and I can't wait to see more posts from you! Wouldn't mind seeing some book reviews from you!


  8. Love the shot of you as Tinkerbell and with the Rosalind Franklin snapchat filter too, too cool! I hope your dissertation has gone / is going well - I remember those last few months very vividly so I can sympathise with the last bits of stress it caused, but once it's done you'll feel amazing and it's a huge achievement, and as soon as it's done you can luxuriate in your bed for at least a week :D - Tasha
