I graduated from University, got offered (and accepted) an amazing job opportunity, I moved out of my parents house…and out of the country. My younger sister also moved out and my best friend had a baby! It's crazy to think how much can change in the space of a year, or 8 months even.
If you had have told me when I started my degree that I'd get a job working as a designer in New York, I would have laughed in your face (well, not really because that might be rude). But here I am, in my own apartment, 3373 miles away and 5 hours behind home. In fact, if you had told me I'd be able to find an apartment on my own I would have laughed, but I did it, and I've been in New York for almost 2 and half months and in my own place almost 2 weeks!
And in a week I'm flying home to celebrate Christmas with my family and friends, and I couldn't think of anything better :)
It is hard to accept change, whether it be living situations or with work or both, but sometimes you've got to take a chance.
I wanted to continue writing posts because it was something that I enjoyed doing and creating, I love reading blogs as well and they inspire me to continue with mine. I love reading Kayleigh's posts on Couture Girl (not just because she's from Newcastle as well) because she inspires me to work hard at my blog, Ivania of Love Aesthetics keeps me inspired with her beautiful dress sense and makes me want to have the same love for the way I dress and Rosie from the Londoner never fails to keep me excited about food and cooking, and now that I have my own place I can start making some of those amazing recipes!
If I could inspire one person in the way that these bloggers inspire me, that would make me a very happy person indeed.
Let's see what the next 8 months brings!
