Moving Day and a Life Update

As this post is published I'll be enjoying a fry up, courtesy of the Toby Carvery, before heading off to my new house and setting everything up. My dad, who is always willing to give up his time and is the best taxi driver a girl could ask for, is helping me out, and was kind enough to drive me back to uni. Last year I was incredibly nervous about moving but this year I'm just excited  I can't wait to get back into a proper routine and catch up with my housemates and uni friends.

I'm starting the second year of my degree and I'm also co-editor of my uni's student-run writing anthology, so I'll be much busier than I have been and unfortunately this means blogging might have to take a bit of a backseat, at least until I get settled in and work out a schedule.

Over the summer I've been aiming to post every other day, but during term time I don't know if this is going to be possible, so I'm aiming for three times a week instead. As far as I know, my word counts are going to increase by quite a substantial amount and my number one priority is my degree. I passed my first year with a 1st, and I see no reason why I can't do the same this year and the year after, but, naturally, it means a lot of hard work  even more effort than I put in during the year just gone.

That doesn't mean I won't be paying attention to blogging; on the contrary, I have several ideas up my sleeve, and I feel like I've made some improvements to Toasty over the past few months or so. When I did work experience over the summer, several people were impressed, or at least interested in, the fact that I write a blog, and I know one of my lecturers has a nose occasionally (Hi Barrie!) so I intend to keep standards up!

So that's basically what's going on right now. Give yourself a mini round of applause if you read the entire post, and if you're starting a new term then let me know what you're most excited about in the comments! Any tips for living in a house share would be appreciated too.
