September.

There is a lot of good things happening this month for me. The summer is now over and in a few days my entire family will be getting back on with their usual routines. This summer holiday has been really fun and I always enjoy spending time with my family. I’ll miss all of us hanging out together. It’s always good when the school holidays come around.

I know I’m officially an adult because tomorrow I’m getting a new mattress and (shamelessly) I’m really excited about it! I bought a new bed a couple of months ago and I’ve been waiting patiently and the time has finally come to put a new mattress on it. The only things I get excited about now is new furniture and new clothes. That’s normal right?

Next week me and Tiegan have plans to go to London to listen to Josh Savage, a singer/songwriter from Winchester, who I found through Stef and Hannah from The Michalaks. We both really like his music so we decided we would go down to London to have a listen. I’m thinking of doing a whole blog post on this day out so keep an eye out for that. You can find his YouTube channel here, I like his most recent cover of Dakota by The Stereophonics. (Who I just bought tickets for their tour in December.) I really recommend you give him a listen.

After that I’m starting my new job. I’m kind of nervous and I have an induction week in Bedford with the academy that runs all the training, since it is an apprenticeship. I usually get anxiety about these sorts of things but so far I’m only excited and really looking forward to getting stuck in.

After that, I start the job and I’ll be entering the adult world officially. Me and Fran from franciscarockey.blogspot.co.uk are hopefully going to meet up at some point during that week, which I am pretty excited about since she lives near by.

And then finally on the 30th me and Tiegan are going to see James Bay. It feels like it has been ages since I bought the tickets and I’ve had them sitting around waiting to be taken. Fran is also going to be there, which is why we are meeting up before hand and then hopefully we will meet up again for the gig!

What are your plans for the month?

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.
