A new year.

As the start of a new year is upon us it seems only right to dream about the future. So, rather than reflecting on what has been a gloomy year, I have decided to look forward at the things 2021 will offer. I can genuinely not wait for a new start to the year and a breath of fresh air. Although the current situation hasn't changed it feels only right to leave 2020 in the dust and hope for a better year.

Reality – Term one

I have come to the realisation that I am only able to write well when my life is in chaos or I have absolutely nothing to do. Today is thankfully mostly the latter as I have now finished my first term of university! Isn’t that crazy. It still hasn’t fully sunk in that I am actually in university, it still feels unreal. It of course doesn’t help that all of my lectures are online so I am actually experiencing like 10% of university but...

The return

After much deliberation and indecisive contemplation I have decided to start up my blog again. It has been nearly two years since I have last written a post and this feels almost alien to be back writing again purely for fun. Or in my case writing at all due to the nature of my A level choices. Unsurprisingly, the captivating choices of Maths, Chemistry and Physics didn't leave me with many opportunities for extended writing, which as a result has caused me to forget how to effectively use punctuation. Not that I was very good to begin with.

My first job?

Near the end of the holidays I realised that I had accomplished nearly nothing (once again). In hindsight that probably isn't that terrible considering the amount of stress I had put myself under for the last couple months. But near the end of the holidays I decided to get up off my lazy bum and apply for a job for the first time at Mcdonalds.

GCSE Results day

Then it dwelled on me. I had my results in my hand. I walked to a quieter corner of the room and slowly opened the letter. I took a little peek at first just to double check I didn't have to hide my face from the world. Saw the numbers and then put it back.
