A long path to happiness. My Depression Story.

Image
Depression is a term today, used as an insult and is seen as a sign of weakness, it's dismissed at the drop of a hat. Saying you have depression simply gets a head nod and a get over it smile when you tell people.  However it doesn't matter how people perceive it, as its a personal silent killer, the negative words spilling out of your brain immersing your once young and happy body into a dull, black world.  However although the light struggles to come through those air tight walls you've put up, it does begin to peak through just like it began to for me. 
Without writing reams upon reams and boring you with negative thoughts and feelings I will tell you my story a nutshell. Negative thoughts began to plague my mind at around thirteen years old, I didn't understand, I thought I was just having a bad school life.  By fifteen I mostly confined myself to my room disregarding my family, I lived in a virtual land where thoughts destroyed me. I put on weight and I repeatedl…

12 Month: Saving Savy Budget.

Image
Although this may be a strange post for this time a year, I'm still going to show you my 12 month saving savy budget. Of course you would typically start saving in January and start your savings from there, but becoming a student recently, I've decided I wanted to save. I'm not talking mega bucks, after all I did say student, but around £500 realistically, so we all have plenty of pennies for Christmas.

The table above is devised in away that every other month is a cheat month, for example your not really saving a great deal your just putting a little to the side and it doesn't really effect you bank balance (These are coloured blue). Therefore the pink  is unfortunately the big daddies, although there is less pink months these will be your big saving that will build your total. 
I've made this table in effect of my personal life, for example in December and January the saving payments are only £20 due to the fact, we all go a little overboard and Christmas and mo…

Halls: The Twelve Essentials

Image
So you may be thinking this post is here a little belated, as every-ones moved into halls by now, however when I wrote this post I wanted to speak from experience, rather than educated guesses.  So  I've been here for an entire month now (yeah so experienced, I know) I would like to share with you the 12 key items, that you should bring a long with you to halls, including the things I forgot, DOH!
1. A plug extension Cord Don't be caught out by awkward plugs and nowhere to plug your phone in, Think smart and bring an an extension cord. 2. Hair bobbles and bobby pins Don't have lifeless limp hair on your first night out, remember your bobbies and your bobbles!3. A printer (if you can) Don't wanna roll out of bed at 8am to print your assignment off at the library? Get yourself a printer for your room and print off at your leisure. (Although printers are a little pricey, so sometimes the library is good enough)
 P.s - Make sure you link it your laptop before getting to uni bec…

Long Distant Lovers.

He broke the news to me at the beginning of September, with a sentence  that echo's through my brain still. " Do you think we could last if I had to move back to India for a year?" The sentence swam around my brain before I fully understood the situation. My boyfriend was going back to India, hundreds of miles away from away from my little English town. This question was his way of trying to tell me that his time in England was coming to end and he was going back for a year until his situation and status changed. My heart froze at the thought, and I wanted my tiny room to swallow me whole, I couldn't deal with this, I'm meant to be moving to uni in three weeks to be with him, how could this happen!?
Anger, sadness and pain ran through my body for days and days and still does every now and then. He's going to leave me due government legislation that sees him as just a number rather that a person with friends and family in this country, 
After the pain began t…
