There’s four categories on this blog, Personal, Photography, Travel and Videography and over the past three years one section has been getting very neglected, so I think it’s time again that I write about what’s going on in my life.
I started this blog back in 2014 when I was a first year in University, I was almost a different person back then, so much has changed. Three years later I’ve finished my undergraduate degree and am intending on going back for a masters, I’ve discovered the joys of travel and most of all, I’ve made some amazing friends. I’ve had a draft for a post about finishing university started for six weeks now, but I don’t think I’ll ever finish it, I still don’t know what I think about finishing and I certainly don’t know how to put the thoughts I do have into words.
I’m in an awkward in between stage at the moment, typically referred to as summer. I’m not a student any more and it’s not confirmed yet if I will be one next year, everything’s up in the air, my life’s a mess, and for those of you who know me personally, you’ll know I detest mess.
I’ve been saying it to myself for a few years now, but this year it’s definitely true, this is my ‘last summer’ and this year I think I’m ready to finally let go of them. Summer’s have always been that one time of the year when I have no commitments, they’ve gone from 8 weeks to the current 18 weeks and I’ve reached the stage now when I no longer need this type of summer, I’ve grown accustomed to being busy and organising things and I need that back in my life.
I’m forcing myself to do things this summer, every month I’m gonna tweet my aims and with ‘the world’ watching I should have enough pressure on me to achieve them. For June I want to do a blog post every week (Sundays at 6pm is the aim), I want to post ten instagrams (I used to post daily, now it’s monthly, what happened?!) and I want to produce a video of some sort, basically I want to be able to look back on June and be able to say that I made good use of it.
I may have a plan for summer, but for life it’s a different story. I keep getting asked by people where I’m going, what my plan is, what I want to do, but the truth is I don’t know where I’m going, I don’t have a plan, there are even times I don’t know what I want to do! I hate saying it, but it’s true, I will only be young once, so I’m going to enjoy things while I can and steer myself gently towards the future, there’s no point worrying about things now, I’ll have plenty of time for that when I’m older.
