LIFE: February/March Instagram Round Up

Welcome back, readers! It's so great getting to post more on here - I haven't regularly blogged for the past year due to a mixing pot of stress, a busy life, and frustration, but it's like a mental block has been removed and all I want to do is write. I hope I can keep it up!

Today marks April 1st, aka the day the internet becomes totally unusable. As ever this month is a fresh challenge, as I enter the final countdown to dissertation submission; whilst I'm proud of what I've achieved so far, this is going to be totally different.

With that in mind, it's worth looking back at what's been happening in February and March. I feel like I've been bouncing around Scotland for the past two months, and it's been a eclectic mix of new experiences. I always enjoy reading Instagram round ups, and I'm pretty active on there, so let's take a look back at what I've been posting.

Top Left Taking a Voigt Kampff test, aka Helping my flatmate out with his psychology research.

Top Right February was really tough work wise, as due to ethics bureaucracy my research was delayed and had to be tweaked (not my fault!). I triumphed nonetheless, in time for the first signs of Spring!

Bottom Left I was also down in Edinburgh for the national student psychiatry conference, and in a spare hour completed my first room escape game. I got to pretend to be a Russian femme fatale spy master, so overall 5/5.

Bottom Right Dundee ran its second swing dance workshop of the academic year, Valentine's Swing, so naturally I went with some vintage inspired styling.

Top Left Volunteering at a creative arts group for chronic pain in Perth. This was watercolours week!

Top Right I was back home in Glasgow for a impromptu blues workshop (dance has been the main reason I've been flitting about Scotland so much), which in contrast to the last minute nature of my attendance was revolutionary in how it impacted my dance. If anyone gets a chance, I highly recommend learning blues from Justin Riley!

Bottom Left A look I wore for shopping recently. I've had a bad spot break out recently, so I've not been feeling like posting selfies, but look forward to seeing more in future.

Bottom Right Spending easter with my parents in the highlands; it really is witch country up there.


You can find more on my instagram, username @anhonestdrug. How has everyone else been finding the start of the year? Do you like this type of round up post? I quite like reflecting back on what's been happening, but I always like finding out how readers feel. Let me know below!

  1. Lovely photos. I especially like your cool shopping day ensemble. You know, I still feel like I'm a bit in seasonal limbo. We were fortunate to have a relatively mild February and March (March was actually rougher, weather wise, than Feb), but not to the point where an early spring showed up. Now we're getting nicer temps at long last (yippee!), but haven't started seeing new greenery yet, so there's still this quasi-winter vibe. I feel like I need to exhale and breath in fresh springtime air again pronto, then much will be right with the world once again.

    Many hugs & happy weekend wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

    1. Thank you Jessica! I know the feeling - it's not really Spring until everything has begun to grow. I hope it starts again for you soon!

  2. I am glad you still had so many exciting events despite writing a dissertation! Good luck with it!

    1. Thank you! I have been working hard, I swear - the next month is going to be a lot more intensive!
