Am I Crazy?

18 years old. My whole life ahead of me. So much to do and see and really I should just be preparing for the rest of my life. Right?

I’ve never been someone who plans ahead. I’ve never had a “plan”. I’ve never had a vision of where I would like my life to go. When asked the age-old question, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” My immediate response is to mumble and freak out over the intensity of this huge question. One we have been asked and asked time and time again since we began talking. But eventually my goal is to be happy and satisfied with my life. Regardless of what it may be that I want to pursue.
Isn’t that what we all want? Happiness?

As time keeps moving and everyone I know is continuing with their education and getting jobs, I sit and feel like there is so much more which I want from life. I want freedom, to earn money on my terms and to actually be excited for things that I do.

People genuinely think I’m crazy for not having a job and for not continuing my education, I’m currently spending my time at home and mostly, I have all of my time to myself. To do what I want, when I want¬†(Thanks to great parents who are nothing but supportive!). ¬†Maybe I am crazy, for being so young and already knowing that I want more from life than to work simply just to earn my next holiday off.

Since quitting a part-time job, which was actually full-time hours under a part-time contract, was boring and possibly the least fulfilling thing I have ever done. I have spent a lot of time thinking about what I want to do for the rest of my life. There are lots of things that I love; fashion, photography, culture, travel etc. I want to blur the line between work and play and instead earn money by doing the things that I love.

Somehow. I’m still working on it.

Let me know what you think below and if you have any advice then please share!

Bucket List.

It’s that time of year, the sun is starting to shine and I’m reminded of all the things I want to do in life. It’s also the start of festival season with festivals starting all over the world, so I thought I’d share some of the festivals at the top of my Bucket List.

Coachella

It’s that time of year, the festival that everyone wants to be at. In the California sunshine, with art and music to be adored by the masses. It’s definitely up there on my Bucket List to do eventually.

Glastonbury

Probably one of the best music festivals we have in the UK, one I have wanted to attend since watching Mumford & Sons play a couple of years ago on the TV.

Holi

A celebration of love and colours. You can celebrate this in London and it looks like so much fun!

Dia de los muertos (Day of the Dead)

This festival is so intriguing to me, it teaches to accept death rather than fear it.

The Rio de Janeiro Carnival

The biggest carnival in the world with 2 million people who participate. Brazil is at the top of the places I want to go to and if I ever do, then this will be one of the things I see there.

Wisdom Wednesday

Every Wednesday I have decided that I might just create a little reoccurring blog post because, who doesn’t love a good blogging routine? Saying that though, not all of these posts are going to follow the same theme.They could vary from quotes from others, life tips or even little bits of wisdom from me. I’m calling it Wisdom Wednesday.
So every Wednesday you will be seeing this lovely, very clever and obviously original blog title and (hopefully) reading an interesting blog post. To start with I decided that I would post a little wise life quote.
True isn’t it? I think this quote is a good place to start. Not just for this new Wednesday theme but just for life in general. I only recently decided to fully commit to this blog and when there are so many great blogs out there it is easy to get sucked in to wanting to do just as great as them. This quote reminds me that everyone works hard to get where they are, nothing comes easy as much as we all wish it would. It reminds me that I just need to keep doing what I’m doing. Producing content that I love and just enjoying myself doing it. I’m not usually a perfectionist but I feel like I need to be to be a good blogger. I know that’s not true and that goes for everyone. If you enjoy what you do and you believe in it, eventually others will support you too.
