Project Me

I've very much come into my own in the last two years. Who I was at school is a world away from the person I am now, and I think this has come with a combination of factors including living alone, living abroad and the process of stopping comparing myself to other people, and instead focusing on how I can be the best version of myself. And yet, despite feeling happy in many ways, there's still 25% of me which is confused and lost. I have no idea if it's the influence of social media or the influence of those around me, but I constantly feel like my mind is in two places at once.

There's this one side of me who has a life plan. A life plan which revolves around graduating, getting a job, maybe pursuing more studying in something I really want to do. There's a part of me which secretly loves Facebook stalking and watching the whole series of Making a Murderer in 48 hours, getting up at 11am and drinking coffee and ordering Domino's at 3am when it's late and you're crying with your bestfriend about going home alone again. 

But then there's the other half of me. The part which longs to wake up at 7am every morning and do Yoga in the morning light. Who wants to buy a Nokia Brick and forget about stalking ex-boyfriends new girlfriend's sisters on Instagram. To have a healthy cleanse and detox. Explore and get out of the same life everyone else leads, go to places hard to get to and do things hard to do. Eat new foods and work on the go, blogging and taking photo's and just experiencing it all. 

2016 is going to be dedicated to Project Me. Working on my own balance, and trying to satisfy the second me whilst finishing my degree. Spending more time on myself and my thoughts and travelling whenever I have the time and money- whether that's to Cornwall or to Bali.

I just thought today I'd give you a little piece of my mind, I sometimes forget this is my baby slice of the internet and I need to write things relevant to myself.

Ciao for Now!

  1. This is exactly like me! I'm really struggling at the moment with whether or not to look for a job, or to just take a gap year. I know it sounds ridiculous but I genuinely do feel like I need to 'find myself' in a way haha, because I just haven't given myself many opportunities to be away from comparison, away from pressure and stress and to just enjoy life. I do feel like I've changed a lot in the past few years, but there's a lot of things that I'd still like to work on... and I don't think going straight from uni into a job will help with that!
