Why do we call them New Year's Resolutions? Is it just because we set them at the beginning of a new year? Or perhaps because that's the only way we'll be motivated to set them? I'm trying to be more honest with myself and I know that I most likely won't complete those that I call New Year's Resolutions so this year, I'm calling them 'Goals that I won't berate myself for not completing this year'. Focusing the year on self. We get so . . .
Time. It flies by fast, doesn't it? It seems like it was only yesterday that I was still in high school, a fresh-faced student, eager and ready to learn. That was six years ago. Now, I'm a high school graduate, having completed another stage of my life and ready to step into the next one. This year was not easy for me. It was the year of my HSC, my final high school exams, the ones that would dictate my entrance into university. To say . . .
I tried making chocolate balls today. Now, I wouldn't go as far as saying that it was a success, but it definitely wasn't a failure, so that's something at least. I'm famous among my friends for being unable to bake, so despite the fact that this recipe did not require baking, I'm still considering it quite an accomplishment. You can find the recipe I used here. As you can see, I decided to forgo the coconut because frankly, I'm not the . . .
It's Christmas Eve, officially one day away from the long-awaited celebration of Christmas. We finally put up lights outside so they're currently twinkling away merrily for Christmas. Christmas in my household is usually more of a low-key affair, and while I want to celebrate it extravagantly, I'm a bit lazy to put up all the decorations and I can't really imagine myself cooking an entire Christmas dinner so my dream Christmas will have to . . .
As it's the holiday season, it's the perfect time to curl up with a good book and a blanket on the couch. For me personally, I enjoy reading books that warm the heart and give me a good laugh, especially during this time. For those who don't know, I'm an avid reader. I could go as far as classifying myself as a bibliophile, which refers to someone who collects or has a great love of books. This means that I read a lot of books during the year, . . .
Is it just me or are anyone else's friends all getting into relationships? Inevitably, there will come a time when you realise that all of your friends are getting into relationships while you're not. It becomes a little more obvious during Christmas, perhaps it's because the holiday season inspires people to be a little more romantic. Although, it does make sad, little me look more depressing. While I'm not really an adult yet, I do know . . .
High school is over and it seems like everyone is getting into relationships now. Was anyone else part of the 'good kids' clique in high school, where no one was in a relationship, no one went to parties and no one did anything illegal? I was and now it's a really strange feeling when one of us finally has a boyfriend. It's definitely overdue, considering how many students in our year that have been in a relationship. If I'm being . . .
Today, offers were sent out from Australian universities to prospective students and I have to say that university is a lot more confusing than high school. I can say with absolute certainty that the transition from primary school to high school was not as drastic as the transition from high school to university will be. Simply deciding on a degree to pursue was difficult enough, let alone deciding majors and courses with that specific . . .
With a casual job comes unreliability... This is the first time this has ever happened to me, but I really did get sent home from work before my shift ended. Before any of you think that I got in trouble, it was actually just because there were too many Christmas casuals rostered for the day and there wasn't enough to do, so a few of us had our hours cut. While I don't mind going home early and taking a break from the hectic . . .
Is it weird that I feel a bit lost now that final results are out and I have achieved my goal? I live in a constant state of needing to have something to do. I've never been content to just have nothing to do. When that happens, I find myself making and writing down lists just to have something to go on when I find myself sitting around doing nothing. It's a little bit ridiculous when I feel the need to write down the leisure activities I . . .
