All grown up?

I've been reminiscing a lot recently. Mainly due to the fact, that this year there are going to be some massive changes for me.

Life is way too short, so I've decided to spend summer in Lagos, Portugal, letting off some steam and spending time with my good friends over there. Then I will be back in the U.K for a few weeks in summer, to say my good-byes and sort shit out, before I head to Boston, U.S.A for a years college.

The latter is dependent on my enrolling in a couple of weeks. Once that is done, I need a job, then I can apply for my visa. Then it will be real.

I am excited, yet scared, of what the future holds. Scared in a good way though. New people to meet, new experiences, a new life really.

My 22nd birthday is in 2 months time. I really am an adult now. Scary huh?

Those years have gone so damn fast. The good times I had in my teenage years, from 13-19
were amazing. The tough times, helped make me what I am today. My period of bad health in 07/08 also made me what I am. (Live life, don't drift through it aimlessly.)

I have a yearning to do something with my life, be further educated, get a career and travel the world with it.

Even though I am leaving the U.K, I will of course miss my friends and family. But I can't stay here just for them. I have friends, but no social life. We all have different social circles and lives now, it doesn't work to hang out all the time, like we used to. When I was a child, I was dependent on my family, I am no more.

So, heres to making my own way in life and you too. I feel refreshed, optimistic, energetic and determined.

...This blog was inspired by my i-tunes choosing songs today, by bands I used to listen to regularly. Fenix tx and Sum 41 reminding me of summer 2001, when I was 14, one of the best years of my life. Yeah, I'm reminiscing...
