Goals, Monthly recap

June Wrap-Up

This month, I started at my first post-uni job which is why the blog has been so depressingly bare! It’s only a summer temp job but it should go a long way to paying off my overdraft. Unfortunately, going from student life to 8am-5pm work has been a pretty big change, and most nights I’ve basically ended up coming home, having a shower/dinner etc, and going to bed! I’m starting to adapt to the routine a bit more now though, so hopefully things are looking up!

I also got my uni results this month and was thrilled to get a first! That means I did get into my MSc course for 2014, though I’m hoping to try and get some animal/conservation experience between now and then (and save some money towards the horrendous fees!).

It was also my birthday last weekend (busy month) so I went out for thai food, had family around and generally had a relaxed weekend.

Favourite things I did this month: Got my university grades | Had a lovely birthday
