It’s been a crazy few days, to say the least! I had my last exam on Thursday and it’s been full on Summer mode since then. I actually went to the beach twice already and plan on going tomorrow again. I can’t ever get enough of swimming in Malta. Everyone else in the world…feel free to feel envious. We get to have beaches all around us, most of them are so beautiful that they even look like natural pools.
I’m also super tired. It’s like all the stress and hard work which was always present since October is finally coming out. People always say third year is the worse, be it if it’s the final year or the one before the last. I can confirm this. I love studying and working on school stuff but this year, oh boy, at times I felt ready to give up. But now it’s over…and I can finally not think of assignments or exams for a while (this ‘while’ will probably be a week since I start work on my dissertation this Summer…but anyway).
I was all hopes and dreams for my blog this time last year and I can officially say that I’m happy with my accomplishments this year. As Summer approached last year, I was eager to take my blog to the next level. I did. I attended events, reached views which I never thought I would or could…I’m happy. I’m proud. I’m grateful and humbled. I’m also excited. And scared. I might need to slow down my posts for a while to go out into the world and be an adult with adult responsibilities. I’ll try as hard as possible to keep This and That alive. It’s my baby and it’s opened so many doors that I can’t possible shut it down. I can’t.
So that’s it for now. I have plenty of ideas for posts and all that so keep an eye out. Enjoy your Summer and don’t be scared to chase your dreams. I’m going to go all inspirational on you and share a favourite quote of mine:
Change. We don’t like it. We fear it, but we can’t stop it from coming. We either adapt to change or we get left behind. It hurts to grow, anybody who tells you it doesn’t is lying, but here’s the truth sometimes the more things change the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good. Sometimes change is everything.
