So it’s been almost a year since I have written anything…I always manage to somehow do that. It doesn’t feel like that long…but I guess I’ve just been super busy with uni (mostly), work, life and god knows what else! I would like to say a lot has happened over the past 12 months…and in theory, a lot has…but at the same time, I don’t feel like I’m any different to who I was 12 months ago. Older – that’s a given. Wiser – most definitely. For numerous reasons I feel like I’ve grown up a lot more in some sense…and I’ve found some amazing new people along the way. I’ve learnt a lot about love, I found love, I lost love and I witnessed great love. What a year it has been!
First things first. Love. What a topic that I have so much to say about…without ever really knowing how I have come to understand it when I’ve never been in any sort of proper relationship! Without mentioning any names, one person in particular has shown me the absolute true meaning of the word. And for that I cannot thank him enough. Actually…I’m going to leave this for a separate post because I have a fair amount to say…not just in relation to me.
The last year has been full of ups and downs, as with everything in life though, and I’m a firm believer in life needing balance, therefore with the bad, always comes the good and vice versa. Now I’m not going to delve into any specifics because…well truth be told I don’t particularly want to share certain things, and some things would take an age to talk about! One thing I’m really grateful for that I have developed this year though is a really close relationship with my Mum. I’ve never really been super close with her, but we went on a trip together to Bali earlier in the year and we just had the chance to talk about everything and enjoy each other’s company, and I really love that she didn’t judge a word of my stories or emotions, she just listened. Now I know that I can tell her anything, she’s more like a friend now, and I have always wanted that.
My last semester in uni was a strange one, because I didn’t really put a great deal of work into anything, and I rather spent my time with family (because I don’t see some of them much) rather than doing my assignments…but after completing all assessment, I ended up doing quite well and actually got an email stating that I was amongst the top performing students for one of my classes! What a surprise…but a good one for sure! So now…I’m going to focus on applying for exchange because my GPA is good enough and it might motivate me to keep doing well this semester!
Anyway…on the whole…life is good at the moment. Well, I like to believe that it is good…despite a few minor factors that get me down from time to time, but what’s life without the down/sad days?! I have met some great people, some old, some new, and some that will never leave my world for as long as I live. I believe in people making their own luck…but sometimes I’m not entirely sure what I did right to end up with such amazing friends and family, but holy moses I have some very fantastic people that I would go to the ends of the earth for over and over again. And I know that they would do the same for me.
I guess this has been a fairly pointless post. My next one on life and love (kinda seems to be a recurring theme for me actually) will have much more in depth thought processes and what not. Well I hope anyway!
