Life Update 3# Another Year Older Another Year Wiser (maybe)

University has officially started and so has placement. What’s up ahead for me is a busy 9 weeks of study, work, study, work. You know, taking time to write these blog entries as well as to edit the photos to accompany the text takes on average > 2hrs. Hopefully with this busy time coming ahead of me, I can still find time to say goodbye to my clinical mindset that University and placement have so deeply ingrained in me and enter a more creative world to channel my thoughts and feelings.

Since my first blog post to now, I have mainly posted about my roadtrip destinations and nice cafes I have eaten at. Today’s post is going to be a little different as it will be an entry just to talk about life, and showcasing some photos taken from 2016 thus far.

As the title of this blog suggests, it was my birthday last Thursday. Like every year, I turned 22 years old (no older and no younger than what I am every year!) 22 was a good year, and no, it’s not because of Taylor Swift’s song “…oh im feeling 22”. It’s because 22 was a transitional time between being lost and not knowing what to do after graduation, to finding the guiding road that more or less is leading me towards a pretty rewarding career. 22 was also the year that opened me up to the world. Getting a car is a pretty big milestone and because of that, it has taken me to so many beautiful places that I never thought existed. Due to that, a small thought process began to form where I wanted to document all my roadtrips and photos into a nice tidy blog (though that didn’t happen until a year later when I was more certain about it). So yeah, 22 was a good year of growth,  discovery, shutting some doors and opening other ones up.

This year, when I turned 22 again  (lol), unfortunately I was in class all day from 12pm to the ungodly hour of 6.30pm. As soon as the lecture ended, I met with my parents and we went for a nice dinner by the habour. Many people say that if you tell your birthday wishes to someone else, they won’t come true but technically I am writing it out so I guess that is an exception to the rule.

So here it goes.

Birthday wish 1

To be happy and healthy, and for all those close to me to be happy and healthy.

Birthday wish 2

To find a job post graduation whether that be working in acute doing swallowing management, or on the other end of the scale, in a primary school working on literacy.

Birthday wish 3

To continue with photography, writing this blog and working on my fantasy manuscript of 9 years and go to new heights with these three creative outlets.

Photo | And a photo to end today’s blog with is a beautiful autumn tree taken at Maroondah Reservoir because I feel like 2016 has been a very good year for autumn photography :p

Overall, 2016 has been a pretty good year so far, and I can’t wait to see how the remaining half will play out.

Much Love.
