Finally, we’re getting closer to the future, which is where I’m from. The future.
The new year has arrived. 2016. So what does that mean exactly?? For some, it might mean another year of stress, for others, an opportunity- a new beginning. For me, 2016 means the last year of my highschool life.
I suppose that means both opportunity and stress. Because while I may be leaving the place that has granted me with sleepless nights, I’ll also be walking away from friends, teachers and something that meant more to me than I am actually aware of… the freedom to do whatever I please.
School for the most part can be stressfully unbearable, but apart from that, it’s actually not too bad. I don’t pay my family’s rent, nor do I have an actual job. I’m going to university in a year’s time and I still mentally feel like a child. I want to draw cartoons for a living, but I know of so few people who’ve actually achieved just this, that I’ve begun looking for a backup.
Concerns fill my every thought. Growing up is scary, and I have to remind myself that it’s normal to be afraid. That’s life. We can’t exactly see into the future. And who really knows? Maybe it’ll be for the better. And even if I do manage to fail getting into university, at least I’ll have my family behind me.
Remember that you don’t have to do everything alone. Ask for help if you need it, or find someone to vent to. Whenever I have something bothering me, I write it down or have a talk with my parents. Believe me, it helps ALOT.
I never really believed in new year’s resolutions, and for that reason, I’m not going to tell ya’ll to write a list of all the things you want to achieve. Instead, I’ll say it’s better if you just take on one day at a time. That way, you won’t feel like you’re working to achieve something that’s impossible or too far into the future. Start with something small and begin there.
For example, I need to get my homework done before school starts… which means… I should stop writing this and get on it…
Happy new years everyone! xx
2016 will be what you make of it. So make it great!!
What did ya’ll do for New Year’s day? Did you stay up and party? Or did you stay at home and watch movies all night, like me?
