Ok people, this is an unscheduled break from our usual content, I’m writing in actual prose! Yay!

So I’ve being writing and publishing some poetry lately- it began as an emotional outlet and is surprisingly the most successful thing I’ve published!

I originally began How To Mess Up Your Twenties to chronicle my life in Canada, and in general, but then I realised that besides my mental health I am undoubtedly boring.

I haven’t found a man to reenact pride and Prejudice with..yet. Definitely still up for that. I don’t do extreme sports. I generally prefer being inside and I don’t really partake in drama, and if I do, I’m not really in the habit of talking about it on the internet because I’m hyperaware that doing so would probably do more harm than good.

Having said that I am also aware that I often use my blog as a glorified diary.

Hopefully next term, which I am already dreading, will be more dramatic for everyone. I feel far less supported at my home university, and almost as if they actively want me to do badly so we’ll see how the next few months go.

On a different note I think it might be time for me to try and decide what type of writer I want to be. Do I want to be a journalist? A novelist? A poet? A short story writer? Because while I love it, blogger is a difficult title to turn into a profession with income that I can use to fully support myself. Any thoughts? Comments are completely welcome and truth be told, I need some advice.

I’m at a time in my life where although I have a vague goal, I still feel that I lack direction. I’m sick of uni- I’m sick of watching other people enjoy their lives while I stress over essays. I want to travel and fail and cry and discover new things about myself other than how bored I can get during the most exciting time of my life.

I know a lot of this is due to my mental health, but it is a recurring theme in my life- not enjoying times that everyone says I should. I want to explore and experience new things, and I don’t think I’m going to get that sitting behind a computer. It might be time for me to get serious psychological help. And more specifically, it might be time for me to start living my life the way I want to .

Feel free to comment! I would love to have some advice/feedback!
