It’s Summer!!! (How To Celebrate The End Of Exams)

Hey everyone! My fourth-year degree exams finished on Friday and after popping some bubbly, I jetted off to Bristol and then Vienna to celebrate! With Summer fast approaching for many of you, here are my top tips for celebrating the end of exam season.

1) Say Cheers!

Celebrate the end of exams with some cheeky cocktails, an indulgent glass of bubbly or a yummy meal out.

  1. Travel, Travel, Travel!

Visiting somewhere new will help you to clear your mind and get into holiday mode! Travelling is also a great way to reward all of your hard work and keep in touch with old friends.



3. Expand Your Mind

Degree programmes are very focused; so why not use your Summer to expand your horizons and learn new things? Visiting local tourist attractions and reading around subjects that interest you are great ways of unwinding after exams, whilst keeping your brain active.

4. Treat yourself!

Exams take a toll on you; that’s why the post-exam period is a brilliant time to invest in some gorgeous new Summer clothes, get that haircut you’ve been putting off since April and even indulge in a sneaky spa day with your mates (head to Groupon’s website and nab yourself a bargain).

5. Catch-up On Some Sleep

Summer is here, so there’s no shame in spending the odd morning in your pyjamas catching-up on your favourite Netflix shows (I won’t tell if you don’t!)

6. Develop Positive Eating Habits

Now that my exams are over, I’m trying to cut back on my obsession with takeaway fajitas and Sainsbury’s Taste the Difference Cookies. However, the post-exam period is a time for celebration, so I allow myself to eat whatever I fancy when socialising with friends, whilst sticking to a healthy, balanced diet when at home.

 7. Do More Exercise

After exams is also a great time to develop a healthier exercise routine and use your  spare time to engage in your favourite hobbies. Remember; you’ve worked hard during exams and now is the time to reap the rewards.

8. Declutter

That dress that’s a size too small for you? Get rid of it! Those shoes that you haven’t worn for two years? Those too! Charity shops will be grateful for your donations and you’ll have less clutter to lug around on the train or stuff into your boot on your journey home.

9. Make Plans

Exams are over, so why not take the time to set yourself goals and explore exciting holiday, volunteering, work and study opportunities for the Summer months?

10. Be Spontaneous and Have Fun!

Work hard, take time to relax and you’ll make Summer 2017 the best one ever!

I hope that you enjoyed today’s blog post. What are your Summer plans?

Until next time!

  1. Such a great post as always! Glad your exams are done, I hope they went well! My boyfriend has his last one of the year Friday so we’re chilling out for a few days then using our weekends to travel around Devon and Cornwall to explore! Planning to go on holiday too but not sure where yet! What are you doing for the Summer? x

    1. Thanks Roxy! My exams went well, but I’m glad not to have to keep revising! Well done to your boyfriend for finishing his exams too! Devon and Cornwall are beautiful, I hope you had an amazing time :D. Is the weather lovely down South? We hit 26 degrees in Edinburgh yesterday! I’m planning on travelling during Summer too, I’d love to visit Dubrovnik, but it really depends on whether I can find a spare week! I suppose I won’t need to if this sunny weather continues haha! xxx

      1. It’s been beautiful weather here too, but we actually had the biggest storm I’ve seen in this country on Friday night! Luckily I love storms, I’m just glad my parents house didn’t get it as my dogs would’ve been terrified :O Make sure to put some pictures up if you do travel! 🙂 xx
