2014: MY YEAR IN REVIEW

Wednesday, 31 December 2014

ANOTHER year is over and a new one has begun. 365 days have passed in the blink of an eye. I can't believe how fast 2014 has gone by. It's been my busiest year, which is probably why I feel that this year flew past. So many events and experiences that have come my way. Some wonderful and life-changing ones, and some negative ones as well. This is a reflection to the past year, also known as one of the best years of my life.




DIARY: GUILDFORD PT 2 - LOUD KNOCKING, TOURING AND WIFI SUCCESS

Friday, 26 December 2014

IT'S 6am and I've woken up already. It's my second day away from home on my own for the very first time. I've got a long and exciting day ahead with Experience Day at the Academy of Contemporary Music starting at 9:15am. Also, I've got plans to tour the area a bit further. Here we go...

CHRISTMAS, FAMILY AND UNITY

Tuesday, 23 December 2014

CHRISTMAS is probably the world's most celebrated holiday. Despite different views, there is one common denominator that dominates for the majority: unity and family. People make it a point to try and be home for Christmas with their whole family since sometimes that is the only opportunity they get to see each other. It's a beautiful thing, although unfortunately not everyone has the privilege to live within minutes of their families even if they live on either side of the country, as we have in Malta. Not everyone has the opportunity to be with their families for the holidays either, due to work commitments or such. It's a joyous time of year, but is it losing its significance?

DIARY: GUILDFORD PT 1 - PLANE, TRAIN AND FAILED ACQUAINTANCES

Wednesday, 17 December 2014

SO today I embark on a new journey as I travel abroad solo for the first time ever. So this post will be documenting my road to fulfilling my dreams. I hope to move to London some time soon to study, and this is the first step of many. I'm going with an open mind and realistic expectations; what will be will be. But until the final step, this is the start of a long and seemingly a tad bit of a lonely road. I'm hoping my friends and family could use this series of posts as a way of knowing what I've been up to, and if you're none of the mentioned, then you're more than welcome to join me.

Confidence, self-belief and support.

Wednesday, 3 December 2014

I have struggled with self-belief and lack of confidence since I was of a very young age, after some girls at school decided to meddle with it and I was far too naive to ignore it. Without these tools it's hard to move forward and improve in whichever craft or task you're doing, as you would have given up before you even attempt. So here is how I went from zero confidence and self-belief to beginning to believe in myself and feel more confident, through hard work and most importantly: support!
