Blogging is Therapy
I wasn't really sure what image would most reflect what I'm trying to say in this post so I just used one of me holding a good cuppa'. Now, I really don't like to use my blog as an outlet for rants about my life, but this isn't a rant as such, and I feel as though this post will find a nice home here, nestled in between all of my other more interesting posts about fashion and photography!
Basically, I've had a bad day, and yesterday wasn't great either. I started back at uni yesterday after a hefty six week or so break for Christmas, but rather than making me feel alive and motivated like I thought it would, it's made me feel fed up, frustrated and just generally down in the dumps. Somehow everything has annoyed me today...from waking up to a grotesquely messy kitchen this morning, (NOT my mess), to sitting in a lecture about law, (of all things to teach us about on a fashion course!?), to opening the washing machine door and floods of water pouring out onto the floor...bad day!
To make matters worse, in this negative state of mind the thought of where I'll be in three months time when I finish uni has started to terrify me. I don't want to move home with my parents because they live too far from London, but it's very unlikely that I'll actually be able to afford to live in London, let alone intern for free! (Apparently that's the only way in to fashion these days).
The prospect of pursuing my dreams in London seems so far away, impossible even, but the thought of not achieving them is heartbreaking! I know you have to work hard in order to get where you want to be in life, and I am willing to do that, but it just all seems a bit out of reach at the moment...and as I'm being kicked out into the 'real' world in just three months, this scares me a little! Despite all of this however, at least I'll always have my blog. No matter where I am in the world or what I'm doing, I'll still be able to feel part of something and feel connected to my most burning passion in life, fashion, so long as I have my blog.
I feel a little better now after writing on here, blogging literally is like therapy, does anyone else feel better after posting!? It's like a drug, I love it! Thank you to any one who reads this, or to any one who reads my blog in general, it's a privilege to post for you! I'm going to leave all of this negativity behind now and get ready to go out to celebrate Leigh's birthday which was a few days ago, going to wear my new 'Youreyeslie' dress!
