We’re now in the 8th month of the year.
HOW THE HELL DID THAT HAPPENED?!?!?
It feels like yesterday, I was over in America for a family trip (to escape the Australian summer heatwave… lol), and now here I am, facing my final semester of university before I graduate my Bachelor’s degree.
I am definitely on the final lap of my education life before I exit to face the real world. And I’m scared and nervous AF.
A lot has happened whenever I looked back on what happened so far in 2018.
I had friendships that came and went as time moved on to different paths. I know people who’ve decided to drop out or transfer to another educational institute. I received a job which I enjoy as it works well with my university schedule and it’s good for portfolio work. TV shows and new fandoms opened it’s doors to me as I find new interest and outgrow the old ones.
Just thinking about it, it makes me feel nostalgic hence why I created that ‘I miss you’ playlist.
This year is just really hectic that I find it hard to believe that we’re now halfway done.
1 Second Everyday
When I first started university in 2016, a friend introduced me to this app called ‘1 second everyday‘ where basically, we film 1 second of our life each day. So as 2018 started, I did my best on filming tiny segments of my life.
I swear, just seeing all those small moments in under 1 video, it feels like it all just happened yesterday, but you know what they say, time flies when you’re having fun.
So what am I afraid of?
I’m afraid to say goodbye to my childhood.
If you kind of think about it, university allows you to experiment in some degree, help you find out what you really want to do in life and guide you to your end goal.
My path has been through multiple twists and turns since I started in 2016. What was once my official goal to become a filmmaker soon transformed to me wanting to pursuit video journalism as it was more fun as well as challenging (and there is a demand for it according to sites like LinkedIn).
I’ve befriended a lot of different people, both offline and online. Some left, and some stayed, and some are somewhere in a grey area (you know… those Facebook friends you add but never speak to again).
The places I’ve been to, the people I’ve interacted with, the memories made and soon-to-be-forgotten, it’s something that I’ll cherish as time passes. This may be my final year of study, my final year of freedom, but rather than being afraid, I should see it as another chapter coming to a close.
I don’t know what’s going to happen but I have plans on what I look forward to once this year ends.
But for now… I better enjoy the remaining time left and do my best to make it to the end.
We’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot for love
We’ll give it a shot
