living life yellow.
the ramblings of a 21 year old
Lack of sleep is something that I struggle with a great amount. Especially when I was more sick, I would have very bad insomnia and my sleeping pattern was out of whack. It's taken a long time but finally I have a normal sleep routine and I can say I'm having a fairly decent sleep! I aim to go to bed sometime before midnight (10pm/11pm-ish) and wake up around 8am, which works really well for me.
Here are my secrets to a decent sleep!
Hello. Yes I broke my resolution that I would write at least one blog post each week. I didn't last week, and probably the week before that. I just haven't really known what I wanted to write about until now.
Life is weird. I came to this conclusion whilst I was in the car with one of my best friends. As we were driving we were talking about how much we have both changed as people in the past year (we became friends around this time last year.) Together we both agreed on the fact that we are both different people now to when we had first met. The main topic we were discussing the fact that we were both seeing assholes at the time who broke our hearts, which seemed like a big deal at the time, but looking back at it now, we both laugh about it. We were talking about how sometimes something negative has to happen for you to decide what you want and don't want in life. I like to think of it as you are the main character in a movie. In every movie the main character tends to go through some problems, but in the end everything turns out ok. This theory got me through when I was really unwell and loosing hope.
Life is also weird because I never thought I would be in the position I am today. When I was at high school I chose to opt out of doing speeches and get a failed grade rather than stand up in front in front of a class and talk. Now, I am going to get paid to stand in front of potentially auditoriums full of school students and talk to them about periods! I am also looking to start uni in July, which is something I have always said I would never do. I am terrified to start, but so excited at the same time.
