Life and other things

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted. I'd love to say something indescribably exciting happened but alas this is not so. Basicly life lately has been looking after my animals and school. I have 1 week of school left and then exams, this is very surreal! I can't belive I'm almost finished this year. So let me talk about the great things this year:
* I made a good RL friend, we have lunch at least once a week and she's stayed over a few times, we've watched movies and talked. You don't realise how much you miss that in your life until you have it again.
* I've grown some online friendships
* I've done okay at school, 75% was my worst mark and that was for my English oral. However our in-class essay could kick my butt, we'll see.
* I learned to drive!
* I travelled to Europe 
* I've become slightly more socially confident
And now let's talk about the not so great things this year and also coming up:
* I've still got a really long way to go with my social anxiety. An epically long way.
* My friend is going to be moving interstate next year, I'm really going to miss her.
* I'm also going to miss her editing stuff for me, she rocked at it
* I'm stressed and worried about uni next year
* I've lost some internet friends
* In the end I decided to attend a local uni instead of move, I thought that support at home would be very important for me. Even if the course is not the exact one I wanted to do, I can always transfer once I'm feeling more confident
* I've not made any progress on the romance front at all. It's depressing
* I'm going on a trip with above friend for a month in the new year, I'm nervous about this. I've never travelled with anyone but family and she's so much younger than me. Hopefully it won't be a complete disaster.
* I've been having a bit of a confidence crisis lately. Hanging out with beautiful 18-year-olds will do that to you.
I've made the decsion to try uni out and see how it goes, if it goes well and I get an exchange thats great. If not I intend to defer for a year after year one and do a working holiday. That way I won't miss out either way.
That's really all the updates for now, rest assured I'm still here and I haven't forgotten about my blog or you guys :) You'll probably be hearing from me over the holidays a fair bit more I imagine! I have a few posts I want to write and hopefully there will be time then. And rest assured I'll keep you all uptodate with uni adventures.



  1. Congratulations on the various bits of progress and the great school marks! I think that your uni plan sounds good too. Good luck with your exams!

    1. Thanks Matt :) I'm finished up with school officially now and I'll post in the next couple of weeks about it........and about my first time ever going out at night!
