Spring is here!

Botanical Gardens

Elizabeth is running an amazing 'blog every day in may' challenge, and although I won't be blogging every day in May, it really couldn't have come at a better time! I have a tendency to stress, a lot, about exams. I end up in this weird frame of mind where I can't actually concentrate on anything that isn't work (because obviously if I'm not sleeping I should be working) but at the same time, I can't actually concentrate on anything that is work related, because my brain just really wants a break. Its a problem. I'm getting better at balance and all that, but at the end of the day I just really, really, really want to graduate with a good degree (and thus begins the vicious cycle of 'oh my god I need to do more work' all over again). Its fun times around here people, fun, fun times. 

However. Back to the point of this post... This challenge is perfect, because I'm really trying to make sure that I have 'off' time as well, but sometimes I just can't come up with anything interesting to write about. I mean, there's only so many ways I can write about spending 14 hours of my day revising the evolution of oxygenic photosynthesis. Right? Right. 

Today we're supposed to be writing about our favourite things about Spring. Of which I have many. I love flowers (obviously, because plants are my favourite). I love hanging out by the pond in the park. I love ducks (especially when they quack because its hilarious). I love not having to wear a coat. I love that feeling of being warmed by the sun, when you feel like the warmth goes all the way through to your bones. I love blue skies. I love fluffy clouds. I love waking up to light streaming through my window. I love the lighter evenings. I love green leaves on trees and the sounds of birds singing. I love the simple little things that just make life better. 

But this year, more than ever before, I love that feeling that things are just getting started and that the whole summer is just waiting to be explored. 


  1. I think it's a great idea to give yourself a break and a different challenge for your mind. You will cope much better with exams and studying by having a brain break.

  2. Beautiful photo! Good luck with upping the blogging, everyone seems to be doing this challenge which does kind of make me want to run and hide while it all blows over... xxxx

  3. Ahhhh yes! Spring is such a beautiful season of renewal, and looking ahead with anticipation, isn't it?

  4. GOOD LUCK with all the work- it will be OK in the end, promise! Make sure you do take some time to relax though, even if it's just to bake or something... I did a lot of that in exam time... xx

  5. Flowers are also my favorite. I feel so lucky that I have a yard this spring with some awesome flowers to enjoy.

    Happy Apple
