Hello. And happy new year!
Christmas this year (or last year?) did not go by smoothly. First of all, there was the emotional last show with my dance school that left many of us in tears, particularly me when I remembered my best friend will be in New Zealand this time next year. Then, of course, the stress of my uni application and the frustration of it not being sent off befor the holidays. And of course, there was the incident on Boxing Day when my 16 year old brother and his mate decided to take my mother's car for a spin and crashed it. But worst of all, we also lost my Nan two weeks before the 25th, after a tough year where she struggled with a number of things, including the brain tumours that got her in the end. She was an amazing women, a safe house for anyone, including those who turned against her. Although, her most prominant quality was most certainly her stubbornness. But we love her and I miss her so much.
The new year hasn't had such a great start either, what with our little Jack Russell, Duke, being put down.
But life goes on.
And mine will hopefully take me to uni at the end of this year, to do either straight Drama, Drama and English, or Drama Creative Writing. I just can't wait to be off, on my own, exploring somewhere new, experiencing life properly. Eek, excitement for it fuels me through my revision!
Despite being quite a happy person, I do suffer from some anxiety issues, most of which manifest themselves in the form of Trichotillomania, the compulsive hair-pulling disorder. I've had this disorder for about two years now and I'm very lucky in the fact that I mainly pull from my lashes and therefore don't have to deal with bald patches. I have recently discovered the wonderfulness which are Tangles and they have been so helpful! Although I have lost two and melted one, thanks to the remaining four I have managed to go almost a week without pulling! :D
I have wonderfully, supportive friends, and some not so great friends which I'm trying to shake off. I also have an amazing boyfriend of three years whom I love deeply and who is the single most wonderful, perfect, loyal, supportive boyfriend ever and I couldn't ask for anyone better. (:
My family, on the other hand, are a little messed up. But besides this, I have two younger brothers, the oldest (16) is an absolute butthead, and the youngest (12) I have a great relationship with and I love him and look after him a lot. I'm kind of his second mother, and, if I'm honest, I absolutely love it. (:
I love writing, whether it's poetry, short stories, or my diary in the form of second person narrative prose. Most of the stuff I publish on here is poetry and will probably continue to be, as I'm not that confident in my prose yet. I hope you enjoy it. (:
Bye-sy bye for now.
