#52weeksofhappiness-Week 39

 Hello there! How has your week been? This week saw the return of lectures and seminars, which saw the return of alarms being set, and no longer being able to choose whether you go outside or not depending on the weather. It has been good to get back into the swing of things, but I don't like the fact that I am now in the latter half of my degree- it's just going too quickly!
 Tom and I celebrated our 5th Anniversary on Sunday, and we went out to Zara's Indian Restaurant in the evening to celebrate. We did have a pre-anniverary trip to York which I have done a post about which if you missed it you can see here. A lot has happened in those 5 years; when we got together we were in Year 10, and now we're into our second year of uni! I can't imagine anyone better to have shared the past 5 years with, and I thoroughly look forward to the next. 
 Monday was such a beautiful day weather wise, and I really thought spring was making an appearance. I left slightly earlier than I would have done to walk to uni, and managed to walk through both Crookes Valley and Weston Park. One of the things that I truly love about Sheffield is just how green it is. Although you're right in the middle of the city, the beautiful parks allow you to escape back to nature. Unfortunately this feeling of spring did not last, and the rest of the week has just been cloudy and filled with rain! 
 On Wednesday afternoon I worked at another open day. I can't believe that this time 2 years ago, I was about to come to my own open day at Sheffield, and talking to the prospective students always reaffirms my decision to come to here, and to choose the degree that I do. If you are currently thinking about going to University, or are in the process of UCAS, make sure you thoroughly enjoy this experience! You'll soon enough be looking back like me, and thinking where has that time gone?
 On Thursday I went for breakfast with Reesha and Rachel, and I then went for hot chocolate with Phoebe and Jade later in the afternoon. This was the perfect way to end my week (I finish at 11 on a Thursday!) and was so lovely to catch up with everyone again, as we all seem to have been super busy!
 Today sees the appearance of Valentines Day, but Tom and I don't really do anything to celebrate as our anniversary is so close. One tradition we do have is that we each have to make the other a card, and we also buy each other a scratch card. Unfortunately neither of us won anything! We'll be getting take away later too which I am looking forward to. I think Valentine's Day has both it's pro's and con's. I like the way that Tom and I celebrate it, as I think it has become too commercialised, as if you love someone, you should be able to show it every day of the year! One of the most important people that I think you need to show your love to, is yourself. My good friend Megan has done a post about this over on her blog which you can read here and what she says strikes true. I am a firm believer in needing 'me time' whether this be going the full pamper route, or just taking out time to read a book. It's great to love others, and to think of them, but sometimes you do need to be selfish and take time for yourself. 

This man.

 I love this last image, it's just so cute and well thought out. Share your love with others, but don't forget to love yourself in the mean time.

What made you happy this week?

Love Jess xxx
