5 Years Time

Hi guys!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Can I start out by saying how much I love the blogging community? Haha, I adore the fact that I have gotten the opportunity to connect with some talented, intelligent, supportive and lovely individuals!

And on that note, I was tagged by my friend Emma Parsons at My Slice to do the 5 Years Time post -  her version is here and I just love it! 

The idea behind this tag is to look forward to what you hope to have accomplished and be doing in 5 years time!

But to start off, we look at 5 years ago...this should be interesting haha.

Braces and a massive side fringe - 13 year old me.
 Is it weird/bad that I don't look TOO different in this photo? 

(That being said, I know there are HIDEOUS side fringe photos that exist...so maybe it's a good thing that this was the easiest for me to find haha.)

Five years from now though?

I will be 23 years old (which is crazy enough to think about!) and hopefully I would have achieved these five things!


I would have finished my technical degree by 21, so by 23 I would have either finished honours in Psychology, be gaining journalism experience, trying something out in the business world - or who even knows! Haha, I love all the fields I'm studying at the moment; all different, but all interesting to me. As to which one I'll end up in? I have no idea, and although that can be scary at times - it really excites me! 



I really hope to have spent some time abroad by myself (on exchange or travelling). I adore my family and friends beyond and the thought of leaving them and going some place faraway is scary; 
but, it's also something I SO want to do! I want to push my comfort zone, experience new things and see what I'm capable of. 

Be my own person.


I so sincerely hope that the people in my life who are my closest and best friends right now, are still in my life in that same way. If I love you, I love you long time and you mean so much to me. That being said, I obviously hope I am blessed enough to meet new people who become just as important in my life over the next five years.

Loyalty to Love.


I hope I'm healthy, intelligent, passionate, caring, witty, ambitious and goal-driven. I hope I have a bunch of successes under my belt (and that I still have the mindset of embracing and learning from my failures), and that I'm a well put together person. I hope I'm incredibly inspired by something and am making a positive difference in whatever way I want to and can.

I hope I'm someone my mother is proud of.

One of my favourite quotes ever is - "My mother worked too hard for me not to be great.")


How crazy would it be if I was still blogging!?! And I hope I am! 
I started this blog for a couple reasons, but the thought that in the next 5 years I would still be following and keeping updated with the same people (and getting to connect with even more people!) is so, so awesome. 
A really cool thing Emma mentioned in her post, was how insane would it be "that in 5 years time I could look back on this post and then see 5 years of posts after it!" 

To be a blogger.

  1. I really love this post! It is very inspirational :) Especially the quote about the mother in the end :D
    I hope that you'll have all the careers you want and that you will be very successful in every single one of them :)

    1. Thank you SO much Roberta, that is so incredibly sweet of you! :)

  2. First of all, thank you for writing this post! :)

    I think you're so brave to want to travel abroad by yourself, I am far too chicken to even consider doing it by myself so I really respect that about you. I think your fourth hope in particular, about making your mother proud, is honestly such a beautiful sentiment. I just loved this post to be honest. I can't wait to see what your new post idea will be X

    1. Thank you for tagging me! It was actually so nice to look ahead and essentially set some goals for myself and realise what I actually want (so I can work towards making them happen!). Haha aww trust me I think I'll be the same when the time comes, but I so want to push myself to do it! Thank you so much Emma, so glad our blogs found each other! :)

  3. Aw, what a great post! I love the idea of looking back at where you were 5 years ago and where you hope to be in the future!



    1. Thank you Laura!!! Love, love, love your blog! :)

  4. I love this post so much!
    that photo of you from 5 years ago is so cute! I will have to dig up a picture of 14 year old me, which will be very embarrassing lol!
    I love all the quotes and I genuinely think travelling by yourself is an amazing experience, you should definetly go for it! You will learn so much about yourself and about the world and you will cherish the memories forever!
    I hope we both will still be blogging in 5 years too haha!
    I hope all of your hopes for the next 5 years come true!


    1. Haha aww thank you so much for this sweet comment Rose! Excited to see your 14 year old photo hehe.

  5. Ahh thanks for the tag in this, what a lovely idea! You were a seriously cute child and have grown to a gorgeous lady!

    I also think it is so wonderful how you want to be someone your mother is proud of - I have no doubt that is most definitely the case :)
