Posted 27th January 2016 by Joelle

Hi Guys Hope the beginning of the academic year is going as smoothly as possible for all you readers! Yesterday I had my weekly mentor session – by the way, if your university offers mentoring/counselling sessions, I would seriously suggest using the service, I will explain why a bit later  – and he made me […]

Posted 12th January 2016 by Joelle

Happy New Year – That Break Went Far Too Quickly!!!! Sooooo, first blog of the new year – Happy New Year to you all 😀 Don’t know how anyone else feels, but that break went far too quickly for my liking; I’m not sure whether I am happy or sad about that. The Christmas period […]

Posted 1st October 2013 by Joelle

First post of the year – sorry it is a little late! For those of you who didn’t follow my blog last year, a little introduction: My name is Joelle; I am a student now in my final year, finally! I started suffering from panic disorder when I was 16 during the time in which […]

End of an era…

Posted 1st July 2013 by Joelle

Okay, so the time has come.  The official end of the academic year.  It has flown by so quickly.  1 more year and I will be a graduate with BSc (Hons) Psychology.  I can’t quite believe it and when I think about the journey I have taken to get to this point, I feel very […]

Finally it’s time to relax!!!!

Posted 31st May 2013 by Joelle

Hi all How is everyone? I can safely say I am probably the happiest person alive.  The  academic year is over, exams are done and now it is time to relax and take a breath. Reflect on the year…what could I have done better? What did I do well? Is there anything I excelled at? […]

Sorry for the delay – Exams Exams Exams = Stress Stress Stress

Posted 1st May 2013 by Joelle

Hi to everyone I hope people aren’t as stressed out as me at the moment.  I HATE this time of year with a passion and I seem to never learn from my mistakes. They tell you to read throughout the year and yet I always find myself not doing it, getting to exam period and […]

Feeling much better!

Posted 18th March 2013 by Joelle

Well, after that terrible February, I am glad to report that I am feeling much better.  I think being open with friends, family, mentors etc… helped me a lot.  Plus knowing that what I was feeling wasn’t going to last and that I had got through it before and that I am not the only […]

Thank goodness February is behind me!

Posted 10th December 2012 by Joelle

Hello to all, Hope everyone is well! Well, I don’t know how, but I have managed to get through my 1st semester of my 2nd year at university – doesn’t time just fly by.  It’s been an up and down few months with workload and emotions but I am soooo happy that I have coped […]

After an up, comes a fall! Or at least a fall followed by some loop-the-loops!

Posted 23rd November 2012 by Joelle

After such a positive and happy October, November has been somewhat of an emotional rollercoster for me.  One day I’m on cloud 9, happy as Larry; the next I have been sitting in a darkened room, in a pretty sad and somber mood.  WHY??? I’m not depressed (I know the warning signs and always keep […]

Finally – It’s Christmas!!!!! A time of year I notoriously hate. Not because I am a Scrooge, no in fact I love Christmas Day, it is just the time of year. I have always been somewhat of a person who suffers more with low mood and depression during the winter months. It may be the […]

With stresses from my final year, as well as picking up this nasty bug that is going around…twice…I have let things go slightly. But now that the Xmas break is upon us, I can hopefully catch up with the things […]
