You may or may not have noticed that I have been a bit AWOL since November. I'm currently in my last year of my degree and, combined with the winter months, just lost all of my motivation for a while. I now have less than two month to go until the end of my degree and a whole new chapter of my life can begin. But for now, I'll post a little of what I've been up to since I last posted.
I went home for Christmas and had some very nice food. And Mexican food at La Choza in Brighton
I spontaneously legged it to Amsterdam on my own after my January exams and managed to tick off another country on my list.
I went to Oxford to see Dylan Moran, got told off for using my phone by Dylan Moran and then ate more insane food
I've been drawing more and have been doing more henna
I recently went down to Cornwall despite having lived in the UK my whole life and visited the Eden Project
And then, just the other day, I finally started exploring more of the area around Southampton and, with the sun finally making an appearance, I headed to Lymington with my house mate to have an afternoon stroll.
I have no idea what direction this blog will take once I've graduated. It'll be a complete change of lifestyles. I suspect it will become a travel blog. With the end in sight, my wanderlust is growing and growing and I'm beginning to take the steps towards a life somewhere else, starting with a TEFL course that I will have completed in August. Then it's onwards and upwards and my dream to make it to South America is finally within in reach.
Despite losing motivation in the winter, a feeling I think many can associate with, I sensed a shift in my blog after my year living in Spain and after spending the summer Interrailing. When you're constantly living in and out of a suitcase, it does put into perspective how much you actually need and the answer is not much. I'm happy with my sense of style and my hair and make up has never really varied that much so I'm no longer fussed about, at least owning, the new trends and make up and I like the contentment that come with finally feeling settled with yourself.
So, really, change is always good, especially if it come after a pause and I look forward to taking this blog to new grounds. Literally. But until then, I just have to drag myself through the last my degree and I hope you are all doing well,
