Leaping into the new year.. literally

 

Hey its me again!

So firstly a huge apology for the fact that I ended my last post saying how much I would be posting as I attempted to get out and get more things done. My only excuse however is that I did in fact take out my bucket list and attempt some of it- which is why I have been too busy to write about it all. BUT this is all about to change as summer school has not inflicted its pain upon me which means I am looking for ways to procrastinate studying, therefore will certainly be posting more about what things I have been up to and the changes coming for this promising year.

So with pleasure I, like many others, am very glad to say goodbye to 2016 and extremely happy to welcome in 2017. I’m personally not sure why everyone felt this way about 2016 but it certainly was a year of change, learning and endings. My new goal is to let those that made up the bad sit in the past and to focus my energy on the opportunities staring at me within this new year.

For starters, I realised that for some reason I’ve always felt that my life was “yet to start”, not exactly sure what I’ve been waiting for but theres always been a wall between whatever is going on now compared to what I believe is coming or hope to come. It took me heartbreak, health trauma, failures and a couple of tears to realise that actually as I’ve been waiting for my “real life” to start, its actually happening right in front of me–> and frankly i’ve been missing out on doing the things I’ve always dreamed about.

It was a huge step to make this blog and to publish it, ive had blogs for years just never shared it with people I know, but I’ve finally done that and proud to say with it have connected with people that are incredible and hugely inspiring.

I knew that to commemorate this new found knowledge that “my life has begun” I needed to actually take a look at my bucket list (its actually so long its a book now- so really my bucket book), and actually DO SOMETHING onthere not just talk about it. 

So ladies and gents I am proud to say I have finally completed a bungy jump. With feeling like I was falling for all of 2016 I thought I should run with the idea of jumping off a bridge but use the coming back up as a chance to make some crucial but exciting changes and grasp new opportunities.

So here I am leaping into 2017, no fear, no regrets just one long bucket list and a new year

Summer Daze..

Finally, after waiting anxiously for a very long time freedom has graced me with its presence. This year without a doubt has been one of the hardest tests Ive faced, with various learning curves each month that has made me openly question alot of things around me.Its made me realise that there is alot of things that you cannot control but that in the process of a routine and mundane lifestyle we forget that theres alot of things we actually do have control over but never grasp such opportunities.

Part one: A greater tragedy to end Romeo and Juliet

  Part one: A greater tragedy to end Romeo and Juliet 14th April 2010  I was standing there that morning freezing cold. Unbeknown to anyone, I decided that day to I layer myself up…  four layers and counting all hidden beneath the thickness of a woollen school jumper. As a drama fanatic, I had been awaiting this day for a very long time. It was the day we embarked on a trip to the University of Auckland to watch the famous Romeo and Juliet in all its Shakespearean Glory. I had dreamt […]

Closing doors and breaking down windows

    After 3 months, several health troubles and experiencing a break up, my mind has been locked elsewhere in a vast and empty space and I have been trying to slowly crawl my way back to this world…After wanting to delete the blog and run away from everyone and anything,  I’ve realised instead that it’s probably about time I used this opportunity to share some real stories not just the pretty photos that mask a sad reality. Understanding these issues may bring some awareness to what I’m experiencing but also […]

Getting lost on the North Shore

  Technically a month late with this story but it was something I wanted to wait to share. Basically the day started off myself and few friends sorting through sheets of biological material searching and counting various things in the water for a biological project. It ended up with myself walking around for hours stranded on the beach and without a ride back to East Auckland. Rather funnily it winded up being one of the more greater things I have done in a while, being stuck somewhere with no car, […]

Lemon and Poppy Seed Cake

Without a doubt I am the worst, at baking and cooking and anything people usually expect me to be good at. But I have got the knack for finding simple easy baking recipes that actually work. And trust me if I can manage something like this, you can probably do it much better than myself. Try it out and comment how it goes. My baking experience stems as far as wanting something to have with the 8 cups of tea I consume and this poppy seed cake + tea= […]

Tips to-do: how to make them worthwhile

With mid-terms around the corner and stressing me out. I am needed to do more things with little time. I’ve done some research and mostly found in terms of organising a persons day there are many ways to do so but there’s one way I encourage for everyone to try. I tested this out on my mother and even she got more things done in half a day at home than ever before!—> mother tested =  full proof. The way to do things, is to set up a proper […]
