Hello there, welcome to my blog.
It's the first day of January 2019, and what better a day to try something new?
I suppose now is the right time to introduce myself; hi, I'm Flo. I'm a 21-year-old Psychology student in my final year of university. I love horror films, dogs and makeup (especially big fat off fake eyelashes). I'm looking for a grad job, I'm completing my dissertation and I'm revising for exams - all whilst trying to embark on a journey of 2019 self-love and care.
I'm hoping this blog can be my little piece of sanity; talking about my student experience, my anxiety, my health journey - I'd like to welcome you to join me along the way; hopefully, we can both gain something from this.
2018 has officially come to a close, and I have a really good feeling about 2019. The past year has been full of highs - I travelled around Australia for a month with my best friends, I completed an internship at a global company, I've been in a healthy and happy relationship, etc. - there was a lot to be thankful for.
However, in other aspects, 2018 was one of the toughest years I've had in a while. I put weight back on after a big loss in 2017, I struggled heavily with mental health, specifically anxiety, as well as going through illness after illness - Glandular Fever was a particularly low point.
Because of these aforementioned troughs, I'm starting 2019 fresh - new and healthy recipes, new gym routine, even new bedtime traditions - but let me stress, this is to become a healthier human; NOT for anyone else's benefit or ideals. I'm hoping to improve my relationship with my body and my mind, without neglecting my strict deadlines and job applications.
My 2019 mantras are as follows;
