Spiral Galaxy Messier 83
This dramatic image of the galaxy Messier 83 was captured by the Wide Field Imager at ESO’s La Silla Observatory, located high in the dry desert mountains of the Chilean Atacama Desert. Messier 83 lies roughly 15 million light-years away towards the huge southern constellation of Hydra (the sea serpent). It stretches over 40 000 light-years, making it roughly 2.5 times smaller than our own Milky Way. However, in some respects, Messier 83 is quite similar to our own galaxy. Both the Milky Way and Messier 83 possess a bar across their galactic nucleus, the dense spherical conglomeration of stars seen at the centre of the galaxies.
Another amazing Halloween with my guy. We were The Frankenstein’s: Married With Children edition! Hope you all had a good one and are over the sugar shock… I’m still in a Reese’s cup coma.
Too often we look to others to make us happy, then blame them when they don’t (or can’t)! Sound familiar! It can be really empowering when we finally realise that the source of happiness is within our own minds. :-)
So I’ve been what you call a university student for over 5 weeks now, and overall, I love it. When I first arrived I had a mixture of feelings. Nervous/excited. For many reasons. Of course nothing is perfect, so I’m going to say what I love and what I don’t love so much.
I love where I live, it’s in a perfect spot, about 5 minutes away from campus. The house itself is decent enough, i.e. the oven doors arent hanging off and the showers arent moldy. I love the fact that I like most (yes not everyone) of my housemates. With 17 people under one roof, were all not going to get along now are we? I love the fact that when I walking the streets I can see so many fit guys (It’s just nice to see good-looking people isn’t it?) I also love the fact I’ve met a guy, who I like and think is pretty decent, however it’s still in it’s early stages and therefore it’s best not to assume/comment any further. I love the nightlife here, I’ll be honest I don’t think I’ve experienced every aspect of it yet, but what I have so far it’s been awesome :) I love my course! It’s really interesting and enjoyable, however I can’t escape this sense of fear for when I go on my first placement (which is at the end of January) I’m doing nursing and I just hope I do well on it.
Things I don’t like. Men, they are so confusing. I don’t like having to cook every night. I mean I don’t mind cooking, it’s just difficult thinking what to cook every night etc. I don’t having to be in at uni for 9am. This needs no explanation. I don’t like it when things break on you, MY LAPTOP BROKE THIS WEEK IT WAS AWFUL No truly it was.
Well, what else can I say about uni. It’s mad, it really is. At the same time though it’s fricken awesome. I highly recommend it ;) Baring in mind you are actually passionate and interested in the course.

Well not exactly tomorrow.
I’m leaving Derbyshire for the exciting bustling city that is called Sheffield.
Many emotions have been going through me these past couple of weeks, but as of right now, I feel so excited and ready to go.
At the same time I still have little worries such as not making friends and being a loner for one, which I really hope wont happen, you dont hear about people not making friends at uni do you? Either way, I finally feel excited and ready to go, especially since most of my friends are already there and are settled in.
I don’t blog much about my life, mostly re-blog stuff which I find awesome or interesting. I shall expect to blog about how I’m finding university, and whether or not I survive it!
Peace and love guys xXx
