So this is part one! Friday I will post the rest of my answers – thank you all so much for sending me some great and thought provoking questions that I have definitely rambled on about here.
What do you want to do when you leave university? I talked about my goals career wise in tomorrow’s post so I thought I would talk about my personal goals to cover all bases. Hopefully, I will be moving in to a house in York with my boyfriend and my darling cat, Bradley. I would like to sell my car as it will have definitely seen better days by then and get myself a new one to celebrate leaving university. Basically, I want to do some pretty expensive life changes so I better get saving!
What is your favorite place at your university and why? I actually found this quite difficult as I have a few favourite places for different reasons. I love The Kitchen @ Alcuin which is a great cafe in Alcuin college for chilling out with friends as well as being a great vibe to do work in. In terms of aesthetic, nothing beats the gardens around Heslington Hall – in Summer it is just so beautiful.
If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go, who would you bring with you, and what would be the first thing you did? On a side note to this, I have just booked Prague and (soon) Lisbon and Sweden which are places I am really excited to visit this year so I won’t mention these! If I could travel anywhere right now I would go to New York without a doubt. Unfortunately money is waaay too tight to afford such an amazing trip at the moment but I really hope I can visit some time soon. There is something about the city that I really love and I can’t place my finger on it! I would take my boyfriend, Adam, as we love exploring new places together and I think the first thing we would do is get food and walk around Central Park in our own little world.
Where in the world do you most want to travel to? I will mention a different place to my answer for Natalie’s question. I would love to spend a summer holiday in Santorini but it is so crazy popular at the moment that prices are a little out of this world for a week away. I think the white, traditional buildings and blue seas are stunning and it is another place that is top of my list to visit.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years time? I will be nearly 31 so I would love to be idealistic and say married in a house in York with a child but I have to be optimistic enough to say this won’t all go to plan! Career wise I really want to be on top of my game by 30 and my goal is to be comfortable financially. I don’t want to be someone who has tonnes of money, I just want to be in a place where I know I can provide for myself and my family without worry.
If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would that book be? Oooo now this is unfair! I will have to pick one classic and one modern. My classic would have to be Tess of the D’Urbervilles which is an all time favourite of mine and Adam actually bought me a gorgeous copy for my birthday last year. Modern – no doubt, The Time Traveller’s Wife. If you saw the film and didn’t think much of it, please pick up the book! It is amazing.
What is your perfect pizza? Pffft, Hawaiian all the way! Pineapple totally does belong on pizza!
Thank you so much to everyone who gave me some great and definitely quite a few challenging questions for my 500 followers Q&A, I hope you liked my answers!
