Its embarrassing how quickly life passes you by. When was the last time you saw your best friends? When was the last time you did something crazy? When was the last time you saw your extended family?
It's been over a year since my last blog post, where did the time go? I'm obviously not very good at blogging or keeping in touch. That being said I'd like to tell you about my past year. As so many times mentioned before, I'm not really sure if anyone reads this, if not, feel free to call it a lame journal.
Since my last post I've had quite a few adventures, many 'lows', met amazing new people and spent a lot of hours working. I'm still single. I love my job.
I've been very fortunate to have travelled a lot. I've seen a bit of Africa in the past year, I've been back to Australia, I've ventured into Bali and booked tickets to Russia today. I will be visiting Moscow and St. Petersburg in September.
I lost one of my best friends last year to cancer and three family members. One of my other best friends had a really cute baby. I still miss all the boys I've loved before. On this Friday night at home, I miss all my friends that live abroad.
Life is good, I have a hand full of friends that really go the extra mile, I am healthy, so is my family. I have a roof over my head, a set of wheels, a little bit of food in the fridge and even less money in my bank account. I don't have a five year plan, but I still dream big and still plan to live in a foreign city and see the world.
Change isn't something I'm very good at although I try really hard. They say it's as good as a holiday, just cheaper. I'm not so sure just yet, but I know it brings great adventures. Sometimes. I like adventures.
It's funny how all your friends end up with their other halves and have babies and here I am alone at home on a Friday. It's also funny because I've waited for this moment the whole week. I was so excited to get home, switch on the tv and eat popcorn in silence. Now that I've cleaned my room and came across a few old treasures, I am bored. I did watch a movie and ate popcorn, but it didn't keep me busy long enough.
I've given up on this day, and will now start making plans for tomorrow. I will call a family member, catch up with an old friend and try and do something crazy. And if I remember, I'll tell you about my adventures in less than a year :)
