Back in August, I wrote a blog about things I wanted to do during my second year; my second year bucket list. This year definitely went faster than expected, with a lot of unexpected things that happened so lets have a look at what I managed to do.
Try a new sport
This year, I got involved with the Student Union’s social sports. I did Pilates, Boxfit, HIIT, and 20-20-20. Boxfit was by far my favourite, and I really hope they keep it going next year. At only £1 a session, it was much cheaper than a gym membership.
Get involved in a charity fundraiser
I didn’t quite manage to do this, but I’m planning to get involved in the Mind Hike: Dawn to Dusk. It’s a charity walk in Scotland for 12 hours and it looks like it will be so much fun, as well as challenging.
Master a new recipe
I tried all sorts of healthy eating options this year, and my favourite one was a Burrito Bowl. I loved it because you can customise it to however you want by adding, changing or taking away things. Give it a go with this recipe if you fancy a try.
Take a spontaneous trip
When I wrote this, I was thinking of somewhere abroad, but over the year, I realised that there was no way I could afford a trip like that. I did, however, take a last minute trip to London with a friend when we wanted a break from our assignments. It was great; we explored the lesser known areas of London and enjoyed being around Soho and Stratford (especially drinking bubble tea).
Ace an assignment by not doing it the night before
I don’t know how well I’ve done in my assignments this semester yet, but I certainly didn’t leave them to the night before. Hopefully I can continue that into next year, especially with my dissertation.
