Honest Reflections | Looking Forward

Somehow or other, we’ve reached the end of February. (At least, when I started this post, it was still February. Hello March!) That’s just crazy! I’m not sure I’ll ever understand time properly. For all I know, when I think I’ve got it, life suddenly speeds up again!

My gap year is pretty much half way through, and in a way, that’s terrifying. Where that time has gone, I have no clue. I guess, thinking back, I’ve managed to fill those 6 months with a fair amount, but it also seems to have gone by in a blink of an eye. And so, it’s not without much doubt, that I feel like I’ll be sitting here in 6 months’ time, trying to figure out where the past 6 months have gone. And that time, I’ll be in the midst of packing to go to university.

Learning How to Say ‘Goodbye’

I don’t like goodbyes. I also don’t think I’m alone in disliking them.

As someone who isn’t the biggest fan of change, goodbyes often send a jolt of fear through me. It’s a way of acknowledging that something is changing, and that in some area, life won’t look the same anymore.

Of course, not all goodbyes are big ones. Everyday “See you Laters” and “Byes” don’t have the same effect. But having gone through a large number of changes over the past few months, the “goodbyes” have also increased in number.

Dear 16-year-old me…

Ever wondered what it would be like to receive a letter from a future-version of yourself? Even if it’s just to reassure, or encourage that whatever one may be experiencing at that present moment, there is an end?

Hey Han,
How’s it going?

A Glimpse into the ‘Wizarding World’

Now, I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of the world of Harry Potter, and everything that J. K. Rowling has created. The Potter World has so many different branches to it now, yet at the root of it all, is a story that lives beyond the pages of the books. 

‘We’re All Mad Here!’ | Mad Hatter’…

I’m back! And this time, I thought I’d share some of the photos and preparation from a very fun event: my ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party!’

2018: The Year that ‘Could Be’

I’ve been spending a fair amount of time this week reflecting, and thinking about what my goals are for this year. I’m amazed at how quickly this week has flown by, and no matter how many times I’m told “Time only flies quicker the older you get.”, I still think the end of each year will take me by surprise. That said, as I mentioned in my 2017 roundup, despite time disappearing at the blink of an eye, I’ve generally managed to fit an awful lot into a year.
