Y = You Only Live Once
The A-Z is coming to a close and soon, my schooling life will too. Things seem to be changing a lot for me, now. I'm going to be living in my own flat soon!
Any adults reading this may think it's no big deal - just remember back to the times when you moved out! This is a scary time for me and my friends and it's really made me think about myself, my life, my advantages and disadvantages...I've started to realise that I may not be ready.
So in my gap year, I want to learn about life.
How to get on a plane without parental help? (I usually just follow my mum to the waiting room - I don't even know what it's called - and trust her word.
I'll have to learn for myself now.
So, when I decided to write this novel, it was because I thought, I only live once and this is a whole year of opportunity.
Right now I am ready to start writing, but, of course, I don't have the time with exams and all.
I only live once...
So, what can I do with a whole year of time?
I may go travelling around the East with my friend, Maisie (an earlier post of mine was dedicated to her).
I may go on a cycling holiday
A two week trip to friends in Scotland
An annual camping holiday to Wales
Campervanning (is that even a word?) round Ireland...
There are SO many possibilities! (And not nearly enough money to do all that!)
I guess I'm just scared I'll end up sitting in my room, learning how to be well and truly bored.
What did you guys do in your gap years? (if you had one, of course).
I guess I'm just about to learn how to live life.
Wow. What a scarily huge leap it is.
