Easter has taught me…
Or rather “Easter holiday has made me appreciate even more”…Because most of the following I knew already, but the longer title just isn’t so snazzy is it?
The best things in life really are free!
On Tuesday last week, Ben and Jerry’s annual Free Cone Day finally arrived! A day where you can eat as much Ben and Jerry’s as you like. No catch! After having four delicious cones, I never want to eat ice cream again!
The Tuesday just gone, was Free KFC Fries Day. You just had to show the flyer on your phone, and then you can enjoy the fatty goodness.
What is it about Tuesdays, ey?
Lent is TOO long
A day before Easter Sunday, I got the dreaded phone call from the supermarket explaining the Easter Egg I had ordered was still out of stock. So I did what most other people that haven’t had chocolate in 40 days do: went to the supermarket (and two others) until I found an egg! Not meaning to sound like a spoilt brat, but I did have to settle for a non-ChokaBlok Easter egg. #FirstWorldProblems
The good thing that has come out of Lent though is that I’ve pretty much gone off chocolate, sweets and crisps. Next year, I’m thinking of giving up meat for Lent. Who knows, I could become a vegetarian as a result…
Working out can be fun
Over Easter, I’ve developed a love for dance fitness. It beats running or going to the gym, hands down. There are so many YouTube videos, you can make your own playlist and play them on your TV via a games console. One of my favourites is the Beyonce ‘Move Your Body’ video. The downside? I’ve managed to convince myself that working out means I must eat more food… to balance out the universe of course.
You’re never too old for fancy dress
One of the many great things about University is that you make friends with people from all over the country, which means you can visit cities you’ve never been before. A housemate held a very fun Rock and Baroque 21st in Oxford the other day. At first, I was very hesitant about the fancy dress code, but eventually got really into it once my costume was sorted.
“Horror” films aren’t scary anymore
Maybe it’s because I’m a horror film fanatic, so now I’m totally immune to horror films. I did flinch a tiny bit the other day while watching ‘Dark Skies’, but this just isn’t enough. Maybe watching ‘Evil Dead’ tomorrow will make me scream. Apparently, someone in America fainted while watching it… Wish me luck!
See you next Friday!
