A 'This Week' post hasn't been seen around these parts in a while. I feel like now is a good time to talk a little bit about what's been happening in my life and what's going to happen next. The truth is, I've been feeling uninspired (still) with my blog, and it's probably a combination of being busy with exams and not having time to think creatively, and not having any ideas for posts. When I start thinking about making posts, I just don't feel motivated to grab my camera and shoot some nice pictures, or make a genuine post with genuine helpful advice or something of interest. It's been this way for a string of many weeks, but I am now completely done with my first year of Uni, so theoretically I literally have nothing much else to think about than blogging. It's so weird having nothing to do when you think you should be revising or doing something.
I applied for lots of jobs the other day, so hopefully I'll be able to make a little money over the summer. Even if it's just casual work, it's nice having a bit of money to treat yourself. Something I haven't been doing lately. I have one or two holidays planned for over the summer so that should be nice. I am also planning to get out lots with friends and just visit all those places I've been meaning to go to. I'm excited to head out and take pictures, eat nice food, and spend time with friends. I have three and a half months off now, so I know I need to start being a bit productive while also having a few lazy days here and there (it happens every summer but I literally get so bored - I'm trying not to).
On Friday night I went to my friend's art school exhibition to view all the work the students had done for the year. It was really interesting and cool. I've always been interested in art and try to make some kind of meaning out of things even if you're one of those people that don't 'get' art. I sometimes wish I was more of an artist (I just don't think I have the artistic ability) but I'm actually making an effort to write and draw in a black-paged notebook, and I'm thinking I'm going to go out and buy some new paintbrushes too.
The day I post this it's actually my birthday, so I'm one year older - nineteen. I'd be lying if I wasn't absolutely terrified at turning twenty next year. I'm not really a fan of birthdays to be honest, but I'll try and make the most of it.
