The past week I've had a bunch of fun doing a whole heap of different things. Still trudging through the Sex and the City series, I am now up to Season Four and loving it. My 19th birthday has just passed, and I enjoyed it in the company of wonderful friends and family. I am eager to try out different cocktails (given as a gift from Maddie) whilst devouring my favourite chocolate featured above. As another gift I received the Tiger Lily signature candle; coconut lemon & lime, which smells practically edible. Finally, I have just painted my nails with this beautiful nail polish from Revlon called 'Passionate Pink' in 050. I seriously love it, and find it great for Summer and/or Spring seasons. It applies well, is long lasting and has a nice pigmentation. For myself, university is still a couple of weeks away and I'm almost impatient now! I can't wait to start and immerse myself in the world of meeting new people, learning new content, and achieving my goals. Woo!
I hope you all have a wonderful week.

For my first semester last year, I was eager and ready to learn. I found it quite easy to make friends as I had such a positive attitude. What intrigued me a lot were the different types of people I met, all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds, interests, hobbies, etc. I think that’s what I love most about University life; you never know what to expect when it comes to people who attend, the element of surprise! Whilst this was positive, I found that I was studying things that were of no interest to me. So by mid-year, I had dropped Italian and gone for straight business. My second semester took a slight downwards turn; I found myself doing subjects I passionately disliked. I thought that lots of money in a career was more important than what I was interested in. This in the end made me wholeheartedly miserable. So my advice at this point for you guys is to always choose a degree or subjects that you are interested in. If you are passionate and excited to learn, things will fall into place as they should and you’ll create a wonderful rhythm for yourself.
As I am about to embark my second year at a new University with a changed degree in the field of Arts, I thought it a great time to reflect on what I hope to achieve in the year ahead. For the first time in over a year, I am eager and excited to learn. I’m itching to immerse myself in knowledge about all the subjects I’ve selected that I feel suit my interests and self much more; sociology, public relations, journalism and anthropology. I almost can’t wait for holidays to be over in a few weeks so I can go out there and meet new people, have new experiences, make memories and just have fun.
