Hello, 2015


Hello 2015,

I am still in disbelief that you have arrived, as it only feels like yesterday that I was starting high school, yet it happens to be 10 years ago well done on making yourself feel old, Samantha. I am actually quite grateful to see you, especially as sometimes I do consider myself lucky to be alive, but we don't need to think about that road now.

You started off quite productively actually - I have done a lot of Uni work today and my blog now has it's own domain. Considering that I have the technical skills of a goldfish, I'm actually rather pleased! Anyway, onto a more serious note..

I was sat in a cafe yesterday (the final day of 2014), discussing mental illness with a dear friend, yet I found that I nothing to say about myself. It was an extremely odd moment, as I felt as though I should be updating this person on how I was doing, when in actual fact, I was bored.  I've dedicated the past 3 years of my life to destruction but I genuinely think that's over. I am usually the first person to bring up how I am or make a joke out of it, but I had and currently don't have any desire to. I wanted to talk about what I did for Christmas, how rubbish working in retail is, how my dissertation is coming along.. normal stuff, y'know?

And thinking about it, this conversation has confirmed to me that you have the potential to be a wonderfully free year. It will be a year of experience and change; you will be home to the SClub Reunion tour that I'll see with my housemates, my trip to New York, my graduation, a new house and a new job hopefully. And yes, sometimes change can be scary but y'know what's more scary? Regret - and I for one, am through regretting not living my life. 

So, 2015.. I look forward to what you have to offer
Love Sam
