I almost feel like this is that meme where someone hasn’t replied to a message in months and replies, ‘sorry I was in the shower’. It’s been about 2 months since I last jumped on here and actually wrote a post. My excuse? Ummm, I was taking a nap(?).
I eventually had to say goodbye to the crystal waters and soft breeze of The Caribbean. Arriving back in London, I had a weekend to wash all my clothes and re-pack for another adventure in Croatia! One of my friends invited me and another friend to go to Dubrovnik with her for her birthday. We had such a great time exploring a country none of us had visited before and climbing all the damn stairs (if you’ve visited Dubrovnik, you know what I’m talking about). Seeing as it was so long ago now, I won’t be able to do an ‘exploring’ post in the same way as I do many of the others. Instead, I thought I could a mini round up of our time there?
After Croatia, it was time to celebrate my birthday! I originally had a casual evening catchup, over a few drinks, with friends in mind – then I started organising and decided FUCK IT, LET’S TURN ALL THE WAY UP. So we did exactly that. It was a fairly wild night and it really just reminded me how blessed and grateful I am to have such amazing, solid friends in my life.
A week later was my actual birthday. Turning 22 came with back-ache and the actual realisation that your girl is getting old. My family and I tried The Real Greek for the first time and we L O V E D it. My Grandad’s reply to ‘what was your favourite dish?’ was ‘everything’. I rest my case.
The day after that it was time to head back up to unaaaaay and that’s where the story ends really. I’m loving being back up here. Everything seems so safe and familiar. I’ve been out to my regular haunts, witnessed Uni Of actually win Varsity for the first time, gotten back into somewhat of a gym routine and eaten my weight in cheesy chips and gravy (chuffin luv ya Yorkshire). I will say however, that final year is no joke. I’ve been big time overwhelmed with all the work that needs to constantly be done and I’m trying my hardest to solely focus on just that and not add anything else to my plate.
Which brings me nicely onto my next point. In terms of this blog, I don’t really know what to do. My life right now consists of going to uni, gOiNg tO tHe GyM, going out and not much else. I can’t imagine that would make interesting reading at all. I love writing this little diary and this blog is very much my own space to just speak my thoughts so I don’t want to give it up. I feel like if I have something to post about, I will post it, but I feel like that 2 month radio silence was only the beginning.
Finally, I would love to give a shout out to the people who actually read and follow this blog. I’m grateful for you all. Knowing that there’s a handful of people who read this makes me feel like I’m not just talking to myself!
Do let me know if you’d like to see a little Croatia round up and maybe a life lately round up in pictures?
THANK YOU FOR COMING TO MY TED TALK.
