After 6 months of living in Aberdeen, I finally discovered the blogging community and attended my first event at Union Square organised by McFrank PRUnion Square is my favourite shopping centre in Aberdeen and hosts an incredible variety of eateries upstairs. The other bloggers and I were treated to complimentary drinks and dinner from Las Iguanas, YO! Sushi, Byron and Carluccio's on a Supper Safari. And yes I did have to unbutton my jeans as soon as I got home.

Union Square Supper Safari in Aberdeen

It was only yesterday I noticed my room in Aberdeen has become a lot more homely. My cushions are fluffy and patterned with cats whilst my nail polishes stand in a perfect formation. One thing I didn't have in Edinburgh however is a pinboard. I wasn't quite sure what to do with it when I moved into my flat. It was grey and bare and just a little intimidating.

What's on My Pinboard

Hello there stranger, it’s been a while.

Recently I have been feeling a little overwhelmed with just about everything. I’m not falling behind at university coursework or not having time to see my friends, I just have too many idealistic thoughts and ideas swirling around in my head. I’ve been feeling rather disorganised and stressed and my mind and concentration are all over the place.

I’m not sure if you know already, but I am an indecisive procrastinating perfectionist. Three traits which aren’t the best combination I’m sure you’ll agree. I am also incredibly creative. My thoughts constantly jump from one idea to another, thinking up which vegan dinner to conquer next or an incredible get rich quick scheme. The trouble is I try to do too many things at once, which leads me to doing none very well or at all.

Hence, I want to find a focus again to hopefully destress and become more productive.
