Sunday Spotlight - 7th September 2014

In my life this week…

Change of College course

On Tuesday I had my induction at college, which was quite exciting but also very tiring. I came home after and just crashed out on the sofa and fell asleep for the rest of the afternoon! Thankfully I had the rest of the week off and I start properly on Monday. We were introduced to all the staff we’ll be working with, had some ice breakers with the rest of the students and, in the afternoon, we had some computer tests to look out for things like dyslexia and to see if we might need extra help. Originally I had chosen the Nursing and Midwifery pathway of the Access to Higher Education Diploma, and my subjects were Biology, Psychology, Sociology and Law. But over the summer a few changes have been made. The pathway is now called the Allied Health pathway, Biology has had its name changed to Human Physiology and Law has now been changed to Chemistry. Apparently they have spoken to some Universities, who have said they’d prefer more science, so we’ve all got to do Chemistry now. I’m slightly nervous about this as I haven’t done Chemistry for years and I don’t find it particularly easy, but I’m hoping that the teachers will start us from the beginning, and at least we’re all in the same boat. I must say I’m pretty anxious about starting tomorrow, but I’m hoping I’ll get into a routine over time and learn to pace myself.

Red Hair

I’ve been waiting for ages to get my hair dyed again, and finally this week I was able to head to my local salon and get it done. I decided to go a bit redder than last time, in the hope that it might last a bit longer. I love getting my hair done and was so pleased with how it has turned out. I’m absolutely loving having my red hair again and am using lots of colour saving products to try and keep it this red for as long as possible.


I’m usually such a bookworm and love reading blogs as well, but just recently, I’ve really been struggling with my concentration and can’t get the same enjoyment I once did out of reading. I’m really sad about it because I love to read, but I’m hoping it’s just a phase and perhaps related to my depression, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed I will be able to get back into it at some point. However, just recently I’ve been really getting into YouTube videos, and in particular watching fellow vloggers. I’m seriously addicted and end up chilling out with my iPad every evening to catch up on some of my favourite vloggers latest escapades! Some of my favourites include the Saccone-Jolys, Zoella, Fleur de Force, IntheFrow, Chloe Murray, Sprinkle of Glitter, Gabriella, Leanne Walker and FayesFix. A lot of them also have second channels, so if you want to watch a more structured video you can check out their main channel, or if you prefer more informal vlogs, check out their second channel. I could seriously sit down all day watching vlogs from these guys!

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!
