Keen on two thousand & sixteen

I’ve got 18 unpublished posts sitting in my drafts folder on wordpress. This could be likened to the years of my life. 18 of them exactly, and moving quickly through my 19th year. I feel like the past 18 years have all been preparing me for something amazing. Shaping me into someone who doesn’t need the ways of the world to get her through life. Forming me into a person who just constantly craves adventure as though it runs through my bloodstream.

However, unfortunately I have felt very uninspired since returning from O.S (overseas). My laziness has been numbed by a Netflix account which my friend allowed me to share with him. Watching movies and Tv shows is a bad habit which started to eat its way into my life due to this subscription.

Instead of writing every night like I used to do O.S, I return home from work (back at maccas, yes… unfortunately) and usually make a cheese toastie and settle down for a night of netflix. In one week alone I even managed to start three different seasons of Tv Shows which I made it up to episode 13 for all of them. Shocking? Not entirely, as so many others are this way too!

I’m sorry if this blog post isn’t the slightest bit appealing to you, but work with me here as I am basically FORCING myself to write. Something I should never have to do. I like to talk, and boy I talk a lot! But when it comes to writing I love doing it I just struggle to start sometimes, that’s all.

We are already nearing towards the end of January and I literally can not believe how fast the time has flown already.

In just one more month I will be starting my first degree at QUT University in Brisbane. After deferring my course for 2015 I will begin studying a Bachelor of Entertainment Industries and majoring in Creative Writing. So far I am quite excited to move out of home and although I feel that it is the right thing to do, I am not too keen on University.

To be quite honest with you, I wish I could have stayed O.S longer. I didn’t feel like my journey was quite complete.

I’m not one to dwell on the past. People recognise that about me. I often forget about the petty moments of the past. Those who have hurt me are quite frequently left back in the archives as well. It’s a good trait that I have going on here.

But I know I also didn’t work my butt off back in grade 12 to not at least start a UNI degree. So my goals for this year are to go on a trip overseas somewhere in every UNI holiday break. Making my life revolve around studying and working and studying and working. I will be constantly living for the moment where I have a plane ticket in one hand, waving goodbye to my family and friends with the other.

Once again on an adventure to a foreign place.

2015 was undoubtedly the best year of my life. I learnt more about myself and how I can act both mentally and physically in different aspects of life.

I am so damn excited for all that 2016 has to offer.

Mini new years resolutions:

  • Limit my complaining
  • Travel more
  • Learn Greek
  • Get my European passport application in
  • Learn how to walk in faith

  1. When d’you think you’ll be able to publish those 18 unpublished posts? You never know – some of them may contain profound statements on existentialist philosophy or any other viewpoint on life in the universe As We Know It.
