A sign for the start of the queue to collect tickets for The Reciepts Podcast Live
At last, we're a week away from the end of semester one of this academic year! November was a busy month for me, I tried to start regularly blogging again but I wasn't organised enough and let life get in the way. Starting from today, I'm trying again!

My routine as a student is pretty much the same, work, hockey, uni, repeat. I realised that I wasn't being social enough and it was starting to make me feel down so I made the effort to start being more social.

November started with a trip to Northallerton for Bonfire night. It was nice seeing where one of my uni friends grew up and exploring somewhere so different to London.

One thing I love about being a student in York is the amount of coffee shops, cafes and tearooms there are. I'm yet to go to the famous Betty's but I'm slowly making my way through all the popular spots, the stop for November was Brew and Brownie. I got a stack of american-style pancakes for £8.50, not cheap or particularly student budget friendly but worth the dent on my weekly budget.

Every year since I've had a job, I've bought myself a birthday present (or two). This year, I bought myself a ticket to The Reciepts Podcast tour and used it as an excuse to leave York for the weekend, catch up with friends studying in Manchester and just forget about university for 48 hours or so. If you didn't get a chance to go to this tour, you need to go to the next tour. I went alone as none of my friends really listen to this particular podcast and I was taken in by a group of women who looked after me for the entire evening. The energy of the crowd was unmatched, I can't wait to see what Audrey, Tolly and Milena have in store for the new year! 

I was stressing about housing for next year for a while but I've finally got a house for the academic next year! If you follow me on twitter and have seen the milk tweet that went viral, you can imagine how excited I am to leave this accomodation. I don't move in until July but expect a room tour when I do.

What did you get up to in November?
