#nowplaying Top of the World by The Cataracs featuring Dev
It’s definitely been quite a while since I’ve last written, so I’ve just decided to make a commitment of sorts – more to myself than to anyone else – to start (and thus continue) writing consistently once again, especially since my final year at university is drawing to a close, what with graduation being just around the corner, after the final onslaught of second-semester papers of course – which is now less than a month away. And what better way to celebrate this bittersweet closure and welcome new, exciting experiences than to make this commitment to write, discover and indulge?
Plenty of things have happened since my last proper entry (pre-You Know You Get Me High, Won’t You Take Me for a Ride), and I’ve had so many different experiences since, albeit the relatively short span of time. Turning twenty one was significant to say the least, and it felt like I was from then on exposed to a whole new world, as of yet untouched and unexplored, just waiting for me to leave my mark in it – I think I’d like mine in black and gold, with tonnes of character, thank you.
I’ve learnt and grown so much as an individual in the past month (and two weeks or so), it’s been such an enlightening discovery – of myself, the world and the people around me, and this illuminating journey, suffice to say, has impacted me with a much more positive outlook and mindset, opening my eyes to colours so brilliantly vibrant they keep me completely and entirely transfixed. I’ve come a long way indeed, but I now know this is just the beginning of an incredible voyage, one beyond any sort of comparison whatsoever. To the wonderful individuals who have played a part in all this, supporting and encouraging me to strive to my fullest potential – thank you, from the very bottom of my heart.
On another (yet similar) note, I’ve a number of projects coming up, and lots to do before summer 2012 rolls around. This summer shall be a little bit different from the others so far in the past two years, still a tad uncertain at this point in time but I’m looking at it as a glass half-full. Third time’s a charm, after all! Regardless, I’ll be embracing my future with open arms, an open mind and an open heart. Making it happen.
