By the time a teen reaches the age of 17, he kinda has to figure out what to do with his life: what college to go to, what courses to take and what he could do after he finishes all his studies. Such a messed up society! This decision is extremely important and unbelievably difficult to make at the end of high school. How could an 18-year-old could possibly know what is best for him? Anyway, you just gotta live with it and choose something. Take a risk.
If you know me in person or if you have been reading my blog you must know I am not the kind of girl who would settle down for small and ordinary things. I don’t want something most of the people could obtain on a daily basis. I don’t want to live my life stuck in some office and do things I would get bored of after five minutes. As God made me unique, why whould I want to stop being unique? I am absolutely sure there are so many more youngsters thinking just like me, so this is not what I mean when I talk about uniqueness. It’s the way you choose to do what you love, the path you follow to achieve success, the kind of person you are at the end of this journey that is unique.
A couple of years ago I had a moment of bravery and fearlessness when imagining my future. I started to think about doing something extremely unexpected, something which would require a lot of courage. I have decided to leave my country and go study abroad – this is still such a shock for my family -. After a while, I began looking for more information regarding studying in the UK, advantages and disadvantages, information about the course I’d thought is right for me. Then, I made my decision.
Some people have been asking me lately if there is nothing keeping me here, something I could not let go. Of course it will be extremely hard for me to not be around my family that much and that applies to my friends as well. Even if I am super friendly and I love meeting new people, I don’t trust that easily. That’s why I strongly believe I have some great trustworthy friends I will miss so, so much. Family will always be there, loving me unconditionally, but you cannot ask that much from your friends. However, I had to choose me. I had to think objectively, knowing that the people who are meant to be part of my life, will be part of it. Every single person we meet and share memories with means something. Some help us change, some make our lives better and others are only suppossed to teach us something, to give us a lesson and then leave. Everthing happens for a reason, a reason you will figure out about eventually.
Hopefully, the adventure starting in less than three weeks will be the one I have always been dreaming of. Leaving so soon is both exciting and scary, yet I am looking forward to facing new challenges and striving for greatness. I cannot wait to experience the sudent life and tell you more about living & studying in the UK.
I am not in the position to tell you what to do, yet, please, aim high. Don’t give up on your goals for anyone and anything. Be bold enough to know your worth and be aware of the fact that you are capable of anything. Just believe in you and start making the right changes. Step out of that f* comfort zone ♥
