One day until it’s Friday, yay! As my birthday is fast approaching, I thought I’d reflect a little on my past year. Being 21 hasn’t been all what I thought it would be at all, I haven’t done all of what I had hoped to do but I have made two great memories that I will always keep close to me.
I finished University
I did it yay! I completed my university degree with the grade I was aiming for. After all the highs and lows, I did it. Doing a degree has hands down been one of the hardest things I’ve done but has also been the most rewardable. After the three years bringing me to some of the lowest points in my life, it was mainly a relief to have finished. I’ll never forget that feeling I had when I handed my last assignment in. It proved to me that you can be going through a storm for a while but at the end of it the sun really does shine!! It’s an achievement that nobody will ever take away from me!
Our Canada Trip
What a lifetime of a trip, we went away to Canada for two weeks and visited Calgary and Banff. I absolutely loved it over there, it was somewhere new, me and my mom made the best memories. Those memories will stay with me forever. The way of life is so different over there and being there really helped me unwind and clear my headspace. We went a month after I completed my degree and it was such a huge treat. I haven’t travelled away from home for two weeks straight in ages but I didn’t feel home sick, I didn’t feel down nor anxious like I do here. I want to move out from where I am desperately as there are so many bad memories here. People say to me thats it’s just because I’m on holiday but I know it isn’t just that. I know my own head, I know when/where I’m happy and isn’t where I’m living now. I’m working out how I can get out of here permanently, so this Canada trip definitely provided me with an amazing memory of this year whilst I’m figuring things out.
With my little rant over, I am wondering if any of my readers feel similar to how I’m feeling or have maybe felt like it in the past? I would love to speak to some of you who have maybe uprooted to a new city from where your hometown is or those of you who have decided to move abroad. It would be awesome to here some experiences.
I hope you all have a great Thursday!
