Aren't photo's wonderful. I could spend hours looking at old ones, it's so clever how they capture one moment but that moment can mean so much. I am so grateful for that technology, and how so much of our lives can be recorded. I think I've come quite far since the last year, I went back to school on Thursday to see the school play which I was in last year. I had such mixed feelings, I miss it all so much, the little bubble and how I was so unaware of the next step I was going to take, but at the same time not wanting to go back to it as I have grown up just that little bit more than then. I think one of the hardest things to do is to let go. Letting go of a routine, letting go of someone you love or even letting go of an idea. I'm going to be 19 next month and although in the big wide world that is relatively young, I feel much more mature than I used to and so excited of all the things I'm yet to learn and experience. I'm finding it very hard to grow up and I don't mind admitting it. I think I've had the luxury of growing up at a steady pace, were as some people have to grow up so fast due to their own circumstances. I'm glad I've got the space and time to take it step by step. When I look back at how young and naive I was and even when you reach the old age of eleven you think your older than everyone else, just until you reach secondary school and your bottom of the pile again, to then repeat that experience into six form and then becoming a first year at university. I am grateful for the life I have had and the life I will have. Lets hope its full of joy and happiness.

Daisy, I've had her since I was four, I named her after a visit to Hall place, walking through the herb gardens and simply asking what that flower was. She doesn't sleep in my bed anymore, but she still sits on my shelf at uni :)

I always admire the amazing voices that sing night after night at the west end, the fact that their voices alone can captivate the audience and have us in tears. What a wonderful power to have. I do sing but would love to have the time to have proper lessons and gain confidence in singing on my own. As well as that I'd love to learn to play the piano and learn sign language.
Wars around the world, not just this one but for me this is constantly in my mind. When will there be peace?
