University and Make Up.

This has been a rather good weekend!
On Saturday, me and my family went to London for the day but my brother felt ill so we ended up going home quite quickly after arriving. We managed to go to lunch at a restaurant called Hawksmoor before we left though and it was incredible. I had been there for breakfast before I went to my lecture day at UCL and that was also amazing but our lunch was the best I've ever had. It was in the centre of Covent Garden and quite difficult to find but so worth it, the food is so so amazing there. They're a steakhouse and they live up to their name fully. I had a really gorgeous fillet steak which was the best I've ever had! I had a quick look in Kate Spade before we left too but it wasn't as amazing as usual which was sad! My parents said that we can return in a couple of weeks when my brother is better so that will be fun!
Once we got back home, I found a letter from Reading University asking me to visit them for an interview next month! I have slightly lower predicted grades than what they want but because of my experience, they're giving me a chance which I'm really grateful for! It's a great course so I'm quite excited but very nervous as I don't know if I will be good enough!
I'm a type 1 diabetic which means I have to do injections. I have done since I was 10 and I have a severe phobia of needles so they gave me a spring loaded device so all I have to do is push a button and the needle will be automatically released. I used to have breakdowns when I tried to physically inject myself but I was told a few weeks ago that they've stopped making the spring device so I've been having to try physically inject myself so I can incase one of them breaks. I've been panicking about it so mum bribed me with a shopping trip. I've managed to do it a few times now so after Sunday lunch, me and mum went to Reading and went shopping! I got a few great pieces that I've been wanting for ages but I don't get to have them until Christmas so you have to wait and see what I got! I'm really excited though!

  1. Yay for your interview! :) Well done! And also yay for you doing your injections, that's brave xxxx

  2. Thank you, it's going to be so scary but I'm quite excited! Hehe, thank you, I'm glad I got it done now really :) xxxx

  3. Ouch, that sounds tough--I could never be able to inject myself >_< Good luck on your interview, I'm sure that you have the experience needed to stand out.


    1. I find it very difficult - hence the auto injector! But I'm learning little by little so hopefully it won't be as much of a problem later on in my life when I will inevitably have to! :)
      Thank you, I hope so too! Especially as it was with the Uni I'm actually getting interviewed at! x
