There Is Never A Right Time To Say Goodbye

So today is basically my last ever day living the “student life”.

These past three years have gone so quickly and I really am so thankful to have had the opportunity to experience university. I have had lots of ups and lots of downs over the last few years, but I think they have all been completely worth it. The downs have given me that little bit more strength and taught me several lessons to learn about life. The whole experience has been one big learning curve.

My bedroom is practically empty now… I hate it. I am spending today and tomorrow blitzing our student house before kissing it goodbye. I lived in student halls for the first two years of university and then moved out to a student flat for the final year. This flat has definitely been my favourite… I really don’t want to leave.

I’m actually trying not to think about the fact that I am leaving, otherwise it gives me a lump in my throat and makes me feel really sick with my anxiety. I was like that last year when moving out of halls too. I wasn’t strong enough to say goodbye to my old flat. I had packed everything before I went home one weekend, and then that was it. I couldn’t face the thought of going back to move my stuff out and say goodbye, so I stayed at home whilst my parents went up to collect all of my belongings and hand my keys in. Continue reading

This Is Why I Love Blogging…

Since becoming a blogger, I have gained so much more confidence in my writing and myself, and have felt happier in general life too.

I have always been one for writing things down. When I was younger, I would keep a diary, and I have always had a passion for writing. I started a blog last year which I updated every now and then, but I didn’t really get into it or meet other bloggers that much.

A month ago, I decided to start fresh and create a new blog to update as often as I can. I set up a separate email account and twitter account (@bigdreams1993) to go with it, to keep myself as organised as possible.why-blog-2

The moment I had created it, I loved it. Within the first night, so many other bloggers welcomed me to the blogging community, and I immediately felt at home. I honestly couldn’t believe how nice and how understanding everybody was. Since then, I have grown to learn more and more about other bloggers, do guest posts for bloggers and invite them to do guest posts for myself, and I have even worked with other bloggers on collaboration posts.

It has now been almost 4 weeks since I first started my blog, and I do not regret it at all. I have met so many amazing people, got to know more about them all, share my thoughts and views with other bloggers, and see the world from hundreds of different perspectives.

I have always been a shy, self-conscious girl – I would always be too shy to show other people my writing – but since blogging, I have came right out of my shell. I have found a place to feel calm, welcome and most importantly be myself. Blogging has already given me many opportunities to further my writing career, and each day throws new opportunities at me.

This is why I love blogging 🙂
