November has been of a blur for this blog, and therefore there has been a serious lack of posts. Soz about that, but university work had to take priority. However, I wanted to bring back some positivity to your grey Sunday, with a 'Five Happy Things' post!

1. The thought of seeing Justin Bieber again in 8 days time 
If you have been reading 'Bambi Dreaming' for while now, or follow me on Twitter or Instagram, then you will probably know I love Justin Bieber and I can't wait to see him for the 6th time next Monday!!!

2. Discovering 'Urban Fruit' 
On a spontaneous trip to Asda this morning, I found 'Urban Fruit' and oh my I have just finished a whole pack before I even got to my second 'happy thing'. I picked up the strawberry one, and basically they are baked strawberries and oh my are they good.

3. Reading 
It feels so long since I last picked up a book that wasn't related to my university degree and got lost in some other world. Well, this afternoon I am going to pick up a book (probably Harry Potter, because who doesn't want to be transported to a magical world) and actually enjoy reading.

4. Sunday Roast Dinner 
The great thing about living at home is my Mum's Sunday Roast Dinners. Today it is roast chicken and I'm so excited to delve into it later.

5. It's 5 weeks until Christmas!!
Yes, that is correct. This time in five weeks time it will be Christmas day!! Personally, I can't wait for the food; Roast turkey and all the trimmings.

If there has been one thing that I have learnt from writing this post, is that I really do love food!!!

What are your '5 Happy Things?'

We all have this protective bubble that we all try and stay within, but somethings you have just got to break that bubble and go out there and do something new. 

During my first year of university I kinda stayed within that protective comfort zone bubble, except for trying out Dance and Pole Dancing, I did sod all. To be quite honest, I regret not joining a sports club and societies last year, because it would have made first year so much better. However, this year I have already stepped well out of my comfort zone and joined a sports club. Yes I have finally joined something at university and sticking with it!!!!!! 

Now you are probably all thinking, 'well what then?' I joined Lacrosse. To be honest before I played it I had no idea what it was about. All I knew is you had some kinda stick with a net on the end of it and you played with a ball. I still don't really know the rules, or really how to play, except for shouting in the opposite teams face 'ON BALL' and it scares the hell out of them. 

In all honesty, Lacrosse is fun. 

I have been able to play in my first competitive sports game since I was about 12 (good old High School Netball days) and made new friends, and actually started exercising. Although I have come to the conclusion I am the unfit one, who fails to do a lap around half a pitch, but I am getting there and I am enjoying it. 

Sometimes you just have to fight your fears and go and try something new. You may not want to, but the rewards will outweigh it all. 

Have you done something out of your comfort zone lately?
