I have an urge to describe everything around me in quotes from my favourite songs, and the only way I used to be able to relate to life was to do this. In the last year I have found the person I wanted to be and that is mostly thanks to my best friend, who happens to be the love of my life. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have such an amazing person love me the way he does and I will spend the rest of my life trying to make myself worthy of that love.
I like books. Not in the way that the average joe likes books- but in the way that I can pick up a book and sit down to be lost for hours in it. I don’t mean to sound insensitive but it is likely that I would rather spend my day with my nose in pages than out in the real world. I find trust in books. I find normality.
I graduated university last year, and it was four of the best years of my life. Four of the hardest, heart-breaking, soul-searching and rewarding years that I think I will ever have- and I wouldn’t change a thing. My friends became my room mates, my room mates became my family and I know that for the rest of my life, no matter where we go- the will be there for me.
I have recently become a student in teacher’s college- not because I will receive summers off, have a 9-5 workweek or because “I like kids”. I want to become a teacher because I cannot imagine a more rewarding career choice. Children succeed because they have the right people building their characters from a young age and I want to be one of those positive influences.
I never truly believed in love until recently and I think it is one of the most exquisite feelings in the world. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
I’m truly one of those people who could never run out of things to say, but I truly believe that one day I will be able to say, or write something of consequence- and so, this is my attempt.
