A funny rendition of my recent fails and triumphs, which hopefully will not only give you something to laugh about but will perhaps help you out a bit. DISCLAIMER: Embarrassing Stories ahead that will definitely dent the coolness that I try and portray on this website. Oh well.
I am now (well in exactly one month) half way through my undergraduate degree at university. I am 19 years old, even though I feel about 45 due to my joint pain, love of wine, developing forehead wrinkles, ‘mum’ like personality and obsession with the 1980s. Basically, I’m a cool aunty in the body of a 19 year old lanky, boyish, clumsy girl with the mind of an 70 year old lady. Anyone who knows me, including my mother, will vouch for this. However, half way through my degree (which is a bit mind-blowing because I feel like I still don’t know where the nearest toilets are on campus, nor have I ever hired a book from the library) I think I am slowly beginning the adult-ing process of my life. Not adultERy, just incase anyone thinks that is what this is about. If you thought this post was about cheating on your significant other, you have come to the wrong girl and the wrong place.
(Shoutout to Zane, my significant other, who I hope didn’t think that was what this was about. Love You.)
I've been told that my music taste is very random.
If I had to choose my favourite era of music, it would be the 1980s. There is just something about the music from that decade that just makes you want to get up and dance. It was so full of power, synthesisers and colour - I feel like music from the 80s can be described as colourful because it was just that - one vomit rainbow of everything shoved in together that makes me want to whip out the leg warmers and watch Sixteen Candles.
This is going to be the most blog like blog I have probably posted on here yet. So if you care at all about my week, keep reading. You probably don’t, but I hope you do.
But in all seriousness. This isn’t a blog about what I have been doing this week. It is a piece about how I am feeling and why. The main reason I am writing it, is so that I can hash out my thoughts and put them in writing so that I am able to understand exactly how I am feeling. And if it is at all semi-interesting or relatable to you guys, then you are probably reading it right now.
Anyone who has ran into me in the last week or so will know about my new life changing obsession with the Law of Attraction, The Secret, Manifestation - all of that good stuff. It all may sound completely wacky, but I honestly completely believe in the power of the law of attraction, for one real reason - why not?
Why not believe that if you do good, and think positively, that good things will come to you? Why not believe that your dream will come true? I know why. Because we are so often told that we dream too big.
This is what I think.
