Hey guys! I’ve been pretty busy over the past few weeks and haven’t had much free time. This is because I’m currently on a 5 week intense CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) course. I have to plan and teach 3 hours of class to two different levels of learners along with completing 4 courseworks. I have just finished my third week so I am over halfway which means that I will be able to blog more frequently in two weeks! For those that are curious what I teach, I have included some of the presentation that I used for my most recent lesson 🙂
I’ve done 3 hours of teaching already but I still get VERY nervous when I’m teaching. I guess it’s something that I have to get used to and it’s something that takes time?
I’m not gonna lie I did have a breakdown in the first week as the workload was crazy. The course is pretty tough and intense but hey, by the end of the course I’ll be able to teach English anywhere around the world (if I pass…).
Hey guys! I haven’t been able to post as much over the past few days as I’ve been quite busy 😦 Just wanted to share with you that I have officially graduated from university and have now got a BEng in Civil Engineering! It’s been a pretty crazy and hectic year so this was a pretty happy moment for me.
I’ll try to post more once I’m not as busy as well 😀
Hey guys! I’ve been running my blog for just over a month now and would like to know what you think of it! Let me know if there is something you like in particular/ what content you would like to see more of 😀 Suggestions for improvements are also welcome. Please let me know in the comments 🙂
The Swansea beach is a perfect setting for photos with friends, family, girlfriend/boyfriend or even going solo!
If you’re looking for a warm colour photo then I suggest going down to the beach in the afternoon/evening to catch the sunset!
Mumbles is about a 5-10 minute drive away from Swansea city centre. It’s a cute little town by the coast where you can enjoy the ocean view (best to visit during sunset/sunrise for a photo).
If you’re wanting to go for a stroll then Singleton Park is the place for you. You will be surrounded by wildlife and can even buy food to feed the ducks and swans! Visit this park and you will be sure to find plenty of ideal spots for a cheeky photo session.
It’s been around 2 months since the start of lockdown in the UK which is still ongoing. Shops, restaurants, cinemas and schools/universities remain closed meaning that we spend the majority of our time at home. Despite what is currently happening, we try to keep ourselves busy. Here’s our typical day during the lock down period.
Our sleeping schedule got messed up during the lockdown meaning that we end up waking up quite late (11am-12pm). Depending on my mood I will either make an effort to get dressed or stay in my pyjamas. For the sake of the blog I decided to get dressed and even wear one of my favourite pair of earrings (which I bought from Lovisa). After I’m changed I like to play a bit of Mobile Legends on my phone before doing some of my uni work. Dave usually goes straight to his laptop when he wakes up and will stay glued to his chair for around 3-4 hours playing CS and GTA V.
At around 4pm we were feeling rather peckish. After opening the fridge and realising we had nothing to eat, it was time to make a quick trip to Tesco. As you can tell Dave gets overly excited when grocery shopping and we usually end up spending about an hour in store. We also have to follow the arrows around the store now so it does take slightly longer to get to the aisles we want to.
Once we reached home Dave cooked chicken rice (a Malaysian dish) with soup for dinner. It’s pretty rare to see the sun in the UK so we made full use of it by eating out on the balcony.
In the evening I like to edit and work on the blog while Dave gets back to his gaming. After I’m done with my editing I end my day by binge watching some Netflix (currently into Better Call Saul). If you have any recommendations for good Netflix shows, let me know!
