      So as a few people know I recently made the jump from not completing my A Levels, then moving to college to complete a course in Health and Social Care. I fucking suck with change, so for me this was horrible. During this time I realised how crappy my diet had become and because of this how crappy my health was, notably by the fact I went to a gig 3 nights in a row, got a cough and here I am still with it 5 weeks later. 
      At the beginning of September I also started diving at the London Aquatic Centre and this really pushed me to get my shit in order. 


      Then to sort my shit out, I have stopped drinking basically everything, I now only drink Black coffee, water and fruit infused water. I have also stopped drinking milk and now only have milk replacements. 
      Then I have also started doing a 7 minute work out to improve my fitness levels. The only thing I need to sort out is what I am eating because that is still shit.


      Hopefully in all this will improve my health and therefore improve my mood.

      This year has been a weird one, while I get less active on the site, I got significantly more active in the RTUK Community. I got over my worries and just jumped in head first. While this was only in the latter half of the year it still made a significant impact. I've never been more grateful for a group of people in my life, and I'm so excited to take part even more next year.

      Thank you for making this year amazing!

    • #Buffbuddies Week Zero!

      3 years ago

      Nickel1997 poop

      So I planned to join in the Buffbuddies crew when it started, but I fell ill and completely lost the motivation to run.

      I will be completely honest with everyone (and myself) I am so unmotivated. I am a lazy fuck. I tell myself that I'll go to the gym twice a week, because it's free at my school, but when it comes round to it I find as many excuses as I can to not go.

      Physically, at this point in time I am not aware of my current weight, I will weigh myself and put it in though. But I am a healthy weight for being 5"4 and I am happy with that. It's more along the lines of my overall fitness. I can barely do 1 press up without feeling out of breath and tired. Yes, it's that bad, my stanima is apalling.

      My overall goal for this, is to improve my health, I failed my first year of sixth form (for Americans it's where we take important exams that decide if we got to Uni or not) because I was constantly tired and therefore unmotivated. I need to improve my health and fitness to actually be motivated to do my work.

      So for me this isn't really about weight, it's more about trying to get out of a mindset that I am constantly stuck in.

      To do this:

      - Firstly I will be going to the gym with my friends twice a week, and they are going to scream at me if I try to back out.

      -Secondly I am going to go for a run maybe once or twice a week

      -Thirdly I will improve my diet, not to the point where I am cutting out everything I enjoy but limiting it.

      The song at the moment that gets me really pumped up to work out and start this is:

      Anything - Hedley

      "Oh oh, fuck that, I can do anything."

    • Uni 3; UEA

      UEA was my final uni open day till September, and I loved it.

      I wasn't really sure what to expect, as my Auntie works there and both my cousin and her boyfriend did computer science there and loved it. But it was very nice, it is built on a golf course and so it's very pretty.
      The Occupational therapy course is top as well!
      The end scene from Avengers: Age of Ultron was filmed there also.

      Anyway off to Switzerland at 4am tomorrow morning smiley0.gif

      This week I am doing my work experience at a local school for children with special needs.
      Tomorrow is my last day and I'm so upset. Everyday I have learnt something new, from learning new signs in makaton and how to sign happy birthday, to learning how to connect with the kids in the way they need and respond best to. Overall they are a fantastic class and possibly the sweetest children I have ever met. The teacher and two ta's are also lovely and very welcoming to me.
      As this is what I want to do later in life, I was chuffed to learn that the headteacher, after seeing me with the children, asked who I was because apparently I'm really good. Here's hoping when I apply for a job in a few years she remembers that smiley8.gif
      Tomorrow I will do another post going over what I did but for now I just wanted to say what a great time I'm having.

      -also getting my braces taken off tomorrow- smiley0.gif

    • Uni 2: Liverpool

      4 years ago

      Nickel1997 poop

      Over the last week I've been missing, and I apologize. But after this week I will be back and at full force, I promise.

      Last Thursday me and my parents went to Liverpool to go have a look at the Uni. It's about 4 hours away from me and so we had a long drive up.
      We visited the university on the Friday and there's not really much to say... I did like it but nowhere near as much as I did Oxford Brookes. I don't know if that's because those two are the only ones I have visited or if I just can't see myself there.
      Everyone was absolutely lovely, we had a campus tour and an accommodation tour, which were both great, but I couldn't stop thinking to myself how it just wasn't as nice as Oxford Brookes (although Liverpool do have a brand new accommodation block...)
      We also listened to a talk from a man who was in a car accident and suffered a severe brain injury, and required the help from Occupational Therapists to get where he is today, which was really interesting and different. The only issue was that the staff there didn't seem that enthusiastic about the subject.

      This week I am at my work experience, which is at a local special needs school. So far I am loving it but its absolutely exhausting. When it is finished I will be back.

      Oh and Saturday I met my best friend of 4 years @rileykins for the first time. No biggie.

    • Uni 1:Oxford Brookes

      Today I visited my fist uni which was Oxford Brookes. I went in with doubts but by the time I left, I had none.
      The atmosphere was great, everyone is really friendly in the health and social care department. The location is good as well, because it's easy enough to get to London or home if I want to, but far enough away I don't have people breathing down my neck.
      I now have three left to go; Liverpool, UEA and Southampton. Then I need to find and book a few more!

      Yesterday I sat my final exam for AS, and I am so relieved that they are over and done with!
      I'm not sure how well they went overall as some went really well, some went really badly. For example my first Physics I fucked up majorly but in the second exam, yesterday, I don't think I did as badly...
      I guess we will just have to wait till the 14th August to see smiley0.gif

      Tomorrow I'm off to my first Uni open day, so this should be interesting...

      For some reason it took me until now to realize the '1997' in your name was your birth year. I feel really old now.

        It's okay. It just took me by surprise that you're 10 years younger than me...
