The girl who was once so focused on getting all A – C grades now lusts for a life full of adventure, colour, sound, and who wants to run, screaming, from the prospect of working in a dreary, poorly ventilated office.  The balance of old expectations and new ambitions and goals is not an easy one, but something the goody-goody and the garden fairy can agree on, is that it will be worth it in the end.

Not getting this job could be the best thing that happens to me, as long as I capitalise on the feelings and emotions it has left me with.  My head is swimming with creativity and sometimes we just have to let it out.  so, my advice to you is, jump on those setbacks, those bumps in the road.  Embrace them for everything they truly are: a chance to make your life as extraordinary as it was always meant to be.

if you are struggling with your mental health, please try to let go of any guilt that you feel for not involving yourself in activism you care about.  You should be your main priority when you are struggling or when you are sick.  You cannot help anyone else if you are not looking after yourself, it is never too late to start so you can take your time.   And to those who watch from the outside, who see a lazy, uncaring, unempathetic person, it isn’t as simple as that.  People who you would expect to care may also be working through some heavy stuff, and it may be time to practice some compassion.
