Where has the time gone?

It’s been a while since I’ve been down this neck of the woods, but I’m back (again). My second year of varsity is turning out to be much more overwhelming than I initially thought it would be. I always find myself generating ideas for this blog, and never finding the time to actually sit down and write. Assignments and literally hundreds of pages of readings have taken up a considerable amount of my time, and when I’ve finished that all I want to do is watch series, or listen to podcasts.

This shouldn’t be the case, but the last thing that I’ve wanted to do is write. Between essays and assignments (and my Netflix habit), I’m always in front of the screen. My sleep habits have gone out the window, and generally, I’m not being my most productive self.

I’ve spent a lot of time outside in recent weeks, and the changing season has meant that I’ve witnessed some really beautiful landscapes.

There are only a few weeks left of term, and I’m really thankful. it’s been a long few weeks and I’m ready to get back home to cook and do fun things! Being at home also means that I’ll have so much more time for this, and hopefully, I’ll be getting a lot more content out in the next month.

Until next time.

A Fresh Start

I have been wanting to start a proper blog for years – and I did, quite a few times, but it was never the right time to properly invest my time and energy. Now that I’m in university, and settling in well, I feel that now is my moment. So here I am! Welcome to Catherine and Cranberries, my favourite new space for just about anything, from food (I loooove cooking and baking) to craft, exploring my surroundings with my friends, to health and exercise.
