Looking for the future
Only an estimate students in grade 9 and 10 usually start thinking about college/ university. I am in grade 8 still. After doing 6 months of grade 8 in Australia moving to Canada has meant that I have to re-do the whole year. Therefore, my mind has wondered a lot into the future wanting to grasp for any real chance I might have. University, College same thing. However, different people aim for such different universities/ colleges. I for one have starting thinking about how I would go, would I go well? Will make applications get accepted or rejected? (Hoping for the first one) I found that to get into a good Uni you have to do well in school. So I am trying to make myself a goal. Well more so of a "list" of things I want to do that would help myself in the future but would also be fun! The list always changes depending on where you wish to go, on those more picky schools I would recommend trying a goal or list strategy.
The day has finally come!
The day has finally come... the day I finally realise I'm not going back to Australia. That is one thought I didn't think I would EVER have. Yet I have. For anyone or for most people moving is a really scary and daunting time. Meeting new people, unknown area and sometimes not even being with your family; this isn't my case however. I am moving or have moved to Canada with my family and I am thankful I have been given this opportunity. However, I still feel it will take me a while to get us to the area. I have found that focusing on other aspects of life helps it stops you from thinking of how far you are from all your friends or family. Like for example I have been thinking about what I am going to do to my room - exciting! At the moment we are living in a small apartment which is fine but I can't wait until we move into the house! Recently I've been thinking about a lot of things like I finally have just bought a camera (Which I am so happy with! Which means get ready for some photos, haha!) However I do need to get an SD card before I can use it. I have also been looking at room design, desk, schooling (Learning some basic for all my subjects) I have also been thinking about my future. I know a nerve-racking thought but recently I am stuck between two worlds on which I wish to be apart of... and sadly I can only choice one. So that's that but I feel in the future the answer will come to me. Anyway I hope everyone is having an AMAZING day or night and wish you all the best. xx

Long time no see
It is exactly 8 days until one of my bestest friends in the world is turning 13! Whoop Whoop!!! Today we are going over to her house to celebrate an early birthday! (Since I won't be in Australia on her birthday) For me at least I feel like this is a little bit exciting but also really sad - as it might be the last time the 'four musketeers' will be all together. For all those wonder the four musketeers is what we call our smaller group. It is made up of some of my closest friends (four of us) we have been together for over 3 years! I can't wait to meet up with Camryn (The other owner of the site and celebrate her early birthday) So please feel free to leave 'Happy Birthday' to her on her blog page, so have a lovely day and or night! Also does anyone have any advice for moving? In a way I am excited to move as it means I can finally have a picnic! As I have been really wanting to go on one for a while so here is a random photo of other people having a picnic! Also thank you to Camryn for the naming of this blog post!

Moving! It happens a lot, yet why does it have to be so scary? To that question I don't have an answer too. Therefore I will ask again, why is it so ... nerve wrecking. I am moving to Canada in 6 DAYS, I am yet to know how I truely feel about this yet. At the moment I have mixed emotions. For all those people that have moved and know what it is like please comment on any tips! Other than that it has been a bit crazy - not in a bad way though! Packing and that just takes forever, however it is our first day of Holiday (In Australia). It has been incredible and I can't wait until tomorrow when all my friends will be coming over for a good-bye party which will be sad but it will also be enjoyable! Anyway have an amazing day or night!
