A Letter To My Past Self

Past Self-

Hello, friends.

I’m back to my blogging challenge today with a letter to my past self. I actually wrote this letter a year ago, but since the past doesn’t change, I’ve edited it to bring it back to my blog. This letter writes back a past self from almost seven years ago which is very overwhelming, but it’s so interesting to see how I’ve changed.

I never really understood how much I had changed as a person until I sat down and really reflected on how I am different now to how I was back then. I’ve always had the sure knowledge that significant past events have happened to me, but I have never really realised how these past events have changed and shaped me.

So today I’m sharing some insight as to what I was like when I was fourteen years old.

On Alcohol And Drugs


Hi friends! Did you have a good weekend? What did you get up to? I moved back to university to begin my last second term ever. Today I’m sharing my thoughts on alcohol and drugs.

I love to drink.

But society nowadays tells us that it’s cool to drink lots and get wasted. The build up to anyone’s 18th (or 21st for my US friends) birthday is always ‘I can’t wait to have my first legal drink’. Most of us have started drinking socially by then, so why does it matter if it’s legal or not? I suppose the only upside is that we no longer have to beg people older than us to buy our alcohol – like I did.

Top Five Things On My Bucket List Right Now

This post should have gone out yesterday, but life just got in the way. I had a busy day at work and then in the evening Joel and I went out for dinner. It was so nice to share some good company and good food. Today I’m busy packing my things to head back to university tomorrow. There’s a lot to do!

I’ve revamped my bucket list in order to keep track of the places I want to visit, the things I want to achieve and things I would like to experience. As a lover of lists, my bucket list is always growing. In the spirit of this blog prompt, here are five unplanned things that I would like to do next.

In Ten Years Time

In Ten Years Time-2

Growing up, I have always wanted to be a writer. But for a really long time, I wanted to be a vet. I love animals. But when I realised that I would have to deal blood and guts, I quickly moved on from that career idea. And then onto the next. I have always been quite indecisive. So, then, where will I be in ten years time? How can I possibly know if I’m always changing my mind?

I started watching Tanya Burr’s YouTube channel over Christmas and during one of her Vlogmas videos she launched her new blog. She writes that her blog is a good way to record her life at present and is therefore like a little memory box for her to look back on one day when she is an old lady and see where she was in life. She’ll have diary snippets, photos and tutorials. I love this idea and hope that I can recreate the same with THJ.

I feel like this type of prompt is encouraging me to make long term goals, but I already shared my yearly goals the other day and that’s enough goals for now. Instead, I’m going to speculate where I might be.
