For sometime now I've been thinking about my future and where I would like myself to be within the next year. Whether that's career-wise or living my life independently & how I want to.
I'm finally going to be turning eighteen next month and I've already made goals on where I'd like to be in life after my 18th Birthday.
It's most probably everyone's dreams to get their own place and be living a life independently which that's exactly what I'm hoping for right now.
Some people may think it's too soon or many people might be thinking do whatever makes you feel happy...
My family are not influenced at all by my decision to move out and fend for myself. It's what I've wanted for a long time and I want to put it to the test. My family are very supportive of my decision, however, I'm aware I need to take into consideration the things I'm prepared to take control of by myself. That's including, money -budgeting and general things you would need to be prepared for. I want to start fending for myself and doing things in a mature and adult way. It's all part of life which has to happen at some point in life.
I've been in talks with the services involved with me and their going to do the best they can to help. When I mention that I want to get a place of my own...I don't mean to live the life of Riley and live off luxuries with a 10-bedroom mansion. That's certainly not the case at this entire moment. That's nothing to say what might happen in the future for me in regards to my career of blogging or what I may dream of...
I'm hugely keen to blog for the rest of my life and pursue a career from it. Blogging has helped me recognise my skills & qualities in an in-depth perspective. It's given me the confidence to try to achieve the best that I can in life.
I have thought whether I might get lonely or depressed living alone, however, I will still be in short distance of my family.
More importantly it's how I would spend my time living by myself which would of course mostly involve going to College regularly.
The more I attend College, the more I enjoy it. I've presently been really enjoying College as it keeps me in a routine and breaks up my time.
Having my own space would keep me happy, doing the things I do. This will help my meltdowns become less regular because I'd have nobody to fall out with it. I can do the things I want to do but how I want to do it.
