Well, looky here. I’m finally updating you on what happened in June. If I can actually remember what happened in June 😉 It seems like such a long time ago now. I’m going to try! I get points for that, right?
March was a month of new beginnings.
April was a month of struggle.
May was a month of almost giving up.
June was a month of bouncing back.
Official college classes finished in the last days of May and I was looking at a few weeks of cramming/preparing for end of semester exams.
Nothing like those college finals to ruin a month for ya 😉 I can’t complain. If you had paid me any attention on Twitter, then you would have known that I had been given the final topics for one exam and that my other exam was open book. Pretty sweet deal, right?
I spent a few weeks (read: eighteen days) cramming information into my brain, and writing then rewriting essays for exams. I walked into the exam halls a nervous wreck both times. I walked out saying, ‘Well, HA. I failed.’ but I was pleasantly surprised with my final grades. My marker was clearly in a good mood when they got to my papers 😉 Thank you!
It was in May when I realised that I needed to stop being so blasé about dating. It was in June that I decided to break things off with the guy (man) I had been seeing. We’re friends now. Honest to goodness friends. It’s a good situation. Win-Win. I get to
complain talk about the men (man) in my life and college, and he gives me advice. I get to hear about the new girl he’s dating and I don’t feel jealous at all if you exclude my feelings of wanting her hair and skin tone and face and body and wow, she is gorgeous. I might have a bit of a crush on her. That is probably the biggest accomplishment of all. The green-eyed monster can hit me pretty hard some days, but I finally feel like I’m in a really good place with everything 🙂
In light of moving forward and trying to gain momentum/direction with my life, I decided to start the 101 in 1001 challenge! I’ve actually knocked some things off the list already! Including, but not limited to: this list of questions. The answers (if you feel like reading them) can be found here.
I feel like I went on a road trip to Kuaotunu, because I do almost every month. Let’s be honest. It was probably good. It’s winter. There isn’t a heck of a lot to do in a coastal town in the middle of winter.
I do remember going on a road trip to Hamilton for my friend’s birthday party 😉 I might not remember some parts of the night, but I’m pretty sure I had a good time. I saw all my friends and ate pizza at 3am and spent way too much money. I saw my family and I got to reacquaint myself with my old college town. Sorry Hamiltonians, but I’m definitely an Auckland convert 😉 I love the city. The Hibiscus Coast has my heart. I mean, can you blame me?
After all the partying and travelling was over, I took a look at what I was doing and if I was really happy. For the most part, I was. I had a nagging feeling that I (despite liking PR) was in the wrong major. It was towards the end of June (or maybe start of July) that I applied to switch to a journalism major. I’m still in the same degree. Just studying something different…and that has made the world of difference. I’m working towards my decade-old dream and I’m proud to say that I’m a journalism major. That has to count for something.
June was a good month.
