And I’m writing my first post… I suppose that’s a good start to this blogging thing?
Hi! Some basic facts about myself: 20, Australian/Indonesian, socially awkward. I graduated from high school in May of this year, applied to several universities a couple of months later, heard back from one of the universities not too long ago (I was accepted!), and am now waiting to hear back from my top choice. All of this waiting around has been eating away at me – Will I get in? Will I not?! It’s pretty nerve-wracking to say the least. I’ve been needing something to keep my mind off of everything and I thought, “hey, blogging sounds fun.” And here we are…
I’ve been contemplating starting a blog for a while now, but as per usual, I’ve been procrastinating. Another reason for the delay is my fear of commitment. Okay, it’s not exactly a fear. But I’ve noticed that recently, I haven’t really been able to commit to something for any longer than a month or two. I say “recently” because I used to be involved in many high school endeavours that required long-term commitment, such as being apart of the high school basketball and netball teams. I also say “recently” because I’ve recently tried to stick to a diet and workout plan (the keyword there is tried). I was worried about the upkeep and constant maintenance of a blog but I figured, I really needed something to distract me from reality and this blog will probably improve my commitment skills, right? It’s a win-win. And I’m ready for a challenge – so, I’m really hoping that I’ll be able to maintain this blog for at least… you ready? An entire year!
I didn’t come up with a plan of what my blog would be about specifically – I just sort of dove straight in with a start-now-think-later mentality. I will however probably write about life experiences more than anything. I’m not entirely too sure; I guess you’ll find out when I do… suspense!
Are any of you waiting to hear back from colleges?
Or if you’ve already started, how was your first week there?
Because I think the first week is going to be the most stressful week for me in terms of getting settled in and making new friends – help!!
