I hate making post titles

I’m so uncreative. So many people probably wonder why I even have a blog. The reason is because I like to talk, even if it’s essentially just to myself!

I’m just writing a little update on life, which will include my weight loss journey and uni so far. 🙂

My weight loss journey is actually going really well. In June I attempted to do Junk Free June, but my own version of it – which was just to try and cut out as much sugar as I could. Not entirely – I have a slight sugar addiction and didn’t want to end up cranky and yelling at everyone. But I only had maybe one teaspoon of sugar on my oats, on one day, or I had a normal coffee from the cafe instead of a flavored one (we don’t have sugar free syrups in NZ like many American Starbucks do). I think I did well. I would say I slipped up a couple of times – having a slice of cake or an energy drink because I just wanted to feel happy on that day. Nothing negative happened, just letting myself down a little on those days.

Internships, jobs, what is my life?

This post is nothing specific, just an update on my life at the moment, I guess. I just want to note that I don’t post on exact days or a certain amount of times a week (Or even consecutively in a week) because I don’t feel like forcing myself to blog. My life isn’t too interesting. I post mainly to get out my feelings. I think I’ve said this a million times before, haha!

I unfortunately got called away on the Friday night due to a family issue that after I heard about, I didn’t really feel like being around people I didn’t know. It didn’t even turn out to be a major thing. Anyway, the weekend (well, the Thursday / Friday I was there) it was good. I meet some cool people, got over my fear of meeting people (I hope, I guess we’ll see what happens the next time I have to introduce myself!) I didn’t make any “connections” or whatever, but that’s probably because I left early.

In which I praise my university

I felt a bit stink after my last post. Mainly because there are some cool things about my university that I should mention.

The IT team,  perhaps not totally unskilled, are very helpful if you ask questions or need help with something (that they actually know the answer to, anyway). In fact, one staff member even went out of his way to find a better image of the university logo for me to use on a poster. They’ll come over and fix printers usually as soon as you call them (and come on, it’s not their fault the printers don’t work, printers will be printers). Although sometimes you ask a question and they reply a day or two later. …
