Wednesday Waffling 17 (What's Been Happening)

Me attempting my photography project at the London Blogger Meet

- Hey guys! I am so so so sorry for the two week silence. It has really been crazy - any time I've had to myself I've just lazed about or slept because I've been so overwhelmed.
Basically, it all started when I started college on the 8th (two Thursday's ago). I was instantly given a project which I only had 10 days to do, so that instantly had me stressed. After two days of traveling from Chelmsford to Southend on the trains (about a one hour 45 min - two hours journey because of the walking and the having to go to Shenfield first) I was absolutely knackered because I'm not used to all this travelling. For the last two years I've only been a ten min drive from college and being able to get up at 9. Now I have to get up at around 6/7 everyday. So since I started, my week days of consisted of going to college, getting home at about half six, eating dinner then falling asleep.
Then, on Saturday the 10th I went to the London Blogger Meet which I will be doing a full post on. That was such a lovely day full of lovely people and I can't wait to tell you about it! It was cut short though because I had to run back home to start a shift at work, so again I was completely shattered, which continued through to Sunday.
Monday to Wednesday was spent at college, Wednesday night I went out in town which was cut short by my friend being punched in the face and hitting his head pretty hard on the pavement. 30 mins, 1 ambulance and 2 police men later the night was over :( My friend was fine though, just a bit shocked and concussed.
Thursday and Friday was spent with my friends because they were all leaving for Uni on the Saturday (the Saturday just gone) so I had no time then either. That has been pretty emotional for me, because I'm basically the only one left at home now. I'm also feeling a bit abandoned by my best mate, because now that she's at uni she has no time to talk to me because she's at parties every night and I'm assuming too hung over in the day to talk. She hasn't even started uni/fresher week yet! So I'm a bit afraid that I've lost her as a friend already.
Saturday I was lucky enough to get some last min tickets to the Look Show! I entered about seven competitions so when I got the email I didn't know which one I'd won it through haha. I was really lucky with my seats and the show it's self was amazing. I'm going to do a full post on that too :)

So yeah that's why I haven't been posting. I really have been so overwhelmed, and I hoped it would all be alright by now but I'm still getting back from college and falling asleep straight away, which isn't good because I have so much work to do (until October half term, all my projects are only 7 days long and include quite a bit of work). I'm going to try and get all the important, overdue posts done before I go back to my normal outfit posts, I just can't leave them any longer because it will be rude on my part.
Thank you for sticking with me, and I hope you'll be patient with me while I try to get into a new routine :)
