Twenty-one years. I've been alive for 21 years...goodness knows how I've made it this far, but I have by some miracle and I'm ready to embark on the next 21 years of my life. It's been one heck of a rollercoaster ride and at times I've just wanted to stop and get off...but I've persevered through awkward teen years, bad hair dye and overdramatic eyeliner.
Is it 2018...how? I remember seeing in 2000...I was only 3 but it's my first memory I have. I also remember when 2010 happened and it was scary that we were in double digits...now we are closer to 2020 than 2010.
I find it hard to believe we've reached the end of 2017. I've been in a relationship nearly 6 months now, I'm only 4 months away from finishing my degree. How has the time gone so quickly?
Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, Mean Girls, Love Rosie and Monte Carlo…what do all these things have in common? That’s right the girl gets the guy but in reality, life isn’t like that, as much as we wish it was.
Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing. - Theodore Roosevelt
I spent a lot of April away from the internet and social media, I was drowning in essays as soon as I returned from Croatia.
