The future belongs to those who believe in their dreams

The last time I wrote I was heading home for Easter. Now I am back in Bangor for the final push towards the real world. It’s a rather scary though if I’m honest…I have no idea where the last three years have gone! It seems no time at all since I was filling out those UCAS forms, writing my personal statement and going on Open Days, and yet so much has happened at the same time! I have changed as a person, and have experienced so many new things. I am much more confident, and no longer the outsider. I learnt that usually my biggest critic was myself, rather than my peers, and that being myself gave me the biggest confidence of all. I learnt so many new dance styles and decided once and for all that although Ballet has given me the basics of dance, it really isn’t me. I have discovered the passion for Belly Dance that I always saw in my Mum when I was little, and like to think I have passed that on to my amazing class. I never thought I would even think about teaching a dance class, let alone running my own class for almost two years. If I’m honest, I’m going to really miss it next year. But I think we’ve had a pretty successful time of it πŸ™‚

I’ve been to new places – Conwy, Bishop Aukland, Durham, Lightcliffe, Bangor itself! – and revisited old favourites – Chester Zoo, Wrexham (shopping :P) and Snowdon. I’ve acted like a child playing in the playground, I’ve belly danced with friends at the seaside when we thought no-one was watching, I’ve taken part in a Dance Competition, been a young Otter in Willows and met David Crystal. And I’m the one who never wanted to go to University in the first place!!

I’m so glad I did. πŸ™‚

All that remains now between me and the next big step in my life is two weeks of lectures, a dance show, four deadlines and Graduation. There is also my 21st in July, then my adventure to Brunei in August. What a way to finish off my academic education! I can’t help thinking though – can I just go back to being about 6 again? And stay there? No responsibilities, everyone is a friend, and you can spend all day playing and painting! Actually…the latter of those doesn’t really change πŸ˜› I spend way too much time on my creative hobbies!

But I do have to grow up πŸ˜› In a matter of months School and University will be behind me, and I will need to find a job. Arghhhhhhh!!! Haha.

I have recently finished my degree in Linguistics, and now living back in Mid Wales facing the real world. I love to travel and take photographs. However, I spend more time making clothes and jewellery, and just generally filling my wardrobe with all the colours of the rainbow!!
