I suppose everyone goes through different phases in life and it depends a lot on what’s going on around them.
Recently I have let my surrounding and the goings on get a grip on me. A suffocating grip. One that I want to be free of. Desperately.
21 Things I learned Before 21
Last month I turned 21 and here are a few things that were on my mind before this milestone:
As of late, I have fallen in love with writing again. Here I don’t mean typing or even just writing a story, but I actually mean writing. Simply taking a pen to paper and letting your thoughts flow in whichever direction they choose to go.
This evening my parents and I watched the movie Nerve. It has one of my all time favourite actresses as the main lead (Emma Roberts), so naturally it was on my list of To Be Watched.
I don’t want to spoil anything but the movie had a few concepts in there that I want to discuss.
Willows and Wanderings
Life without wi-fi is proving to be a bit difficult (especially when it comes to updating my blog regularly), however I have had plenty of time to reread some old books and a start on a few new ones. I’ve also had my fair share of adventures and outings. Overall, the Christmas holidays turned out better than I expected.

The Slow Movement
I am finally back home in South Africa for the holidays and time is still a mystery. It flies when you want more of it and stands still at the most inconvenient moments. Sometimes I think that Time lets his children play around with the seconds and minutes and then they become muddled and out of sync.
Making a difference
Can I just say that life keeps surprising me. In so many good and bad ways. Today I mostly want to talk about the amazing ways. There is an ultimate design and my soul can feel it. Maybe my soul has known it all along, and my conscious mind is only now becoming aware.
Remember, Remember, the 5th of November…
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
As some people may know, the quote in the title is from V for Vendetta, a movie that I should really watch again (I also hear there is a book, so that is going on the To Read List). If you don’t recognise the name, I am sure you will know V’s mask when you see it. It has been a popular identifier for the hacker collective known as Anonymous, with a few others using it for their own entertainment.
Is there such a thing as too much thinking? I think there is. For the past few months I have been feeling slightly overwhelmed by they blogosphere and social media. I have read posts from so many amazing bloggers, and they each have their own unique and exquisite style. However, in the back of my mind I have constantly been searching for the ‘right’ way to blog. The ‘right’ way to write and speak my mind on this web of connections. Until today, when I decided to ask myself why am I doing this? Why am I looking for a guideline or approval from someone else? I didn’t have an answer. I felt lost. I was feeling that way more and more about life in general.
