V Festival

Hello there!

Last week I attended my first ever festival; V Festival.

Whenever I told someone that I had never been to a festival before, their instant reaction would be something of: "WHAT!?!?", so I thought it was about time I changed that. I'm not saying I went because of what others thought, I went because I wanted to experience something new and exciting, especially because I haven't been on holiday this year.

After looking at a lot of different festivals, I felt like V Fest was the right one for me due to the kind of music genres that was going to be there.

I only went with one person, my best friend Becky. Some people go in huge groups, but I'm quite glad I didn't for my first one, as it felt more of a personal thing and I didn't have the pressure of a big group to do things as me and Becky are pretty similar.

We have different music tastes in some aspects but we both enjoyed seeing people we wouldn't have gone to see ourselves. 

Here are a few pictures from the weekend...

Having a bit of a struggle
My highlights of the festival had to be seeing The Script, who I have wanted to see live FOREVER, Kodaline, who I have only just got into in the past 6 months but they were INCREDIBLE, and Olly Murs, who I have seen before, but each time he gets better and better. May I add that there was only one person infront of me behind the barrier for Olly and I was so close I could have died (but I didn't, or I'd have missed him perform).

I would LOVE to go again next year, but at the same time I want to experience something different. Also, my poor student problems will be one of the things that will sway me either way when the time comes to buy tickets.

Have you been to a festival this year? Let me know in the comments!

A Fresh Start

Hello there!

I decided it was time to sort my blog out and get back into a routine of updating regularly, without putting too much pressure on myself. To be completely honest, I have never been very good with updating every week with new content.

I always say this to myself, but it IS going to be different this time, and I am going to get into a routine to help me become more productive. I have never been very organised in college and school; but I am not going into my second year of university and I really need to sort myself out.

By doing this, I have decided to completely delete all of my old blog posts (I feel like I forced myself to write them, and that it wasn't my true voice coming through). As I am studying Journalism at university, I have learnt a lot about writing and finding your own voice, and I feel like I am finally discovering mine.

I still have a long way to go with discovering my own style, but that's all part of learning, and as long as I do learn from it, then I'm doing something right.

SO, this is the beginning of something new for me, and I am excited to see where it takes me. 

I have some ideas for new posts already, starting with a post on V Festival, which I recently attended, and a few posts on university as it is coming up to freshers week all over the country!

From now on, I am going to be writing about what I WANT, rather than what I feel like I should be writing about. I will be doing it for me and nobody else, but if I do happen to gain some people who do like to read my posts along the way, then that is a massive bonus!

I would love to hear any suggestions on what I could write about, and if I like the idea, I will give it a go.

Thanks for reading,
