So, I don't know how this happened but last week I turned the big '18' and I'm now officially an adult! I still feel like a child who needs their mum to call the dentist and make an appointment for them! Basically, I'm trying to say that I don't think that I am ready yet but who is ever ready?

When I was little I always thought of 18-year-olds as having their life together, know how to do adult-y things and have everything figured out. And it turns out that the reality is completely different! (At least for me) The last thing that I am right now is having my life just like how I want it!

I'm going to be honest and say that last year wasn't the easiest. I went through a few ups and downs. School life wasn't the best for me and I felt like I couldn't belong. The subjects I was studying didn't feel right and in general, I didn't feel like I was in my place. I didn't have any major problems but the little things felt much bigger to me and I felt sad and alone. I'm sure that I wasn't the only one although it does feel so when you get caught up in your own thoughts. 

Now that I have turned 18, I have a whole new year in front of me. Although I already didn't start it on the right foot, I hope that the extra year that I have grown will help me to handle things better than I would have before. So here's to another year of figuring things out and trying to improve as a person.

For my birthday dinner with my family, I decided to wear these cigarette trousers* in the hopes of looking more *mature*. I don't know if it worked but I still liked the outfit. If you're ever in the mood of shopping on Zaful don't forget to use the code Zafulxie10.

  3. Happy birthday! I always thought 18 yr olds looked like they had it all together too, I'm now 22 and still figuring things out. It's all a process and you never stop learning and evolving no matter the age.

  8. Happy birthday! And don't worry at all about having your life together - I don't think anyone ever has their lives 'together', but they certainly don't at 18 :) Enjoy your first year of being an adult!
