I've kind of been MIA on the blog recently and that is mainly because everyday life has become insanely busy. I am in the last few weeks of my final year in College so due dates and exams are quickly approaching so I am up to my eyes in assignments. Along with normal work, exciting blog projects and the daily life of a 22 year old, but I am not complaining! For once in my life I can honestly say I am happy with how things are going, I am working on myself every single day, powering towards my goals and having fun along the way. I never thought I would enjoy growing up and leaving the adolescent stage of my life behind but I think that is exactly what I needed to do. I have always had an old head on me which made me v.sensible throughout my teenage years but now it is finally paying off. I never had a grá for nights out and endless drinks, I am more of a "in bed by 10pm" kind of girl. I enjoy working towards my goals than the endless college nights out and an evening at home with my family is much more enjoyable than a night out in a club. In this day and age I think it is very rare you hear young people say that, but for me it is true!
My latest exciting step into adulthood was buying my own car! I've had my license for nearly 4 years now and was lucky enough to have an old car under my arse for the last few years but I felt it was the right time to upgrade and get myself a much safer and sensible car. I know for 22 it is such a big commitment to take on but if anything it has pushed me to work harder than ever. Thankfully I have a great family who supported my decision and helped me make the best choice along with Cavanaghs of Charleville who were honestly the biggest gems in this monumental step, they made the whole process a breeze and made sure I was at ease every step of the way - I couldn't recommend them enough! I know some people were asking me on social media what car I ended up getting and it is the Ford Ka+ in white, I know absolutely ZERO about cars so along as one had 4 wheels and would drive, I was happy!
It's moments like these that make me appreciate every step and path I have taken so far. I never made the traditional decision leaving school and while so many people doubted me at the time, 4 years later I can finally say I have proved them wrong and not even that I can say I proved myself right! Life is an actual rollercoaster with incredible highs and disastrous lows but how we handle the ride is what makes us who we are! I am very excited for what is to come and even more excited to work my little bum off and turn my little corner of the internet into something huge. I have so many goals in life that nothing or no one will stop me from reaching them. Here is too the next chapter!
