Life has a its own special way of chewing us up and spitting us out, doesn’t it?
The past seven months of my life has been some of the toughest of my life. Maybe that’s why I’ve took such a long break from blogging– I find it hard to share the tough things with people. I guess I’ve just grown up in an environment where I’ve had to be strong for others and find it scary to drop that wall enough to allow myself to rely on other people being strong for me.

Hey there guys! Well, it’s certainly been a while since I let you guys know what I’ve been up to! Truth is, life has been pretty up and down since around August this year. Lots of personal things going on, and some incredible professional things. Exciting things, upsetting things, new things, lots of things!

I’m an avid reader as the majority of you guys will know, but it’s very often that I find a book that completely changes my perspective of life, it’s been done only once before and that was when I read Anthony Keidis’ Scar Tissue. However, using the man this post is about’s favourite quote, “the times are a’changin'”. When I was growing up, I never thought that a book about a man who sells technology would literally change my view of the world, but Walter Isaacson’s biography on the incredible Steve Jobs changes this completely.

Hey guys! I know that it’s been a while since I blogged, but that’s mainly due to the fact that the past month or so has probably been one of the hardest, and oddest months I’ve faced in a long time. My relationship ended, two of my uncles became life threateningly ill, and pretty much everything has been against me. But, somehow in all of this negativity; I’ve managed to find myself. And although that sounds too odd for words, it’s true.

When it comes to the great Steve Jobs, you can either love him or hate him. But there’s one thing that everyone needs to admit; His vision and determination changed the way the world works. He changed the way we listen to music, the way we connect with each other, he changed the way we see animated films and so much more.

Every single day, we’re bombarded with images of musicians, and we’re encouraged to aspire to look like them. We’re surrounded by an image cautious society, we’re told that we have to look a certain way to fit in, and we’re promised things like success if we look that certain way. And I for one am sick of it.

It’s less than a month until my twentieth birthday, and throughout my (almost) twenty years I’ve met some incredible people who have completely changed my life.
I remember when I was a kid, after a birthday party my mom and dad would sit me down with some paper and help me write thank you letters to the people that had given me birthday gifts, and this has given me an idea; for the next month I’m going to write thank you letters to some of the incredible people I’ve met, these may be posted daily or weekly, I’m not sure. But all I know is that it’s something I feel that I need to do.

I’m sure you’re all aware of the recent events that have been going on in the UK. The past week of pure criminal behaviour that has been known to everyone as ‘riots’ has shocked and disgusted not only us here in the UK but also everyone else around the world. And although I may not hail from any of the cities affected by said riots, it still breaks my heart to see my country in such a state of self-destruct.

Hey guys! I realise that it’s been forever since I last updated you all, and for those that are interested a proper update will be coming in the next few days! But for now, I think that I’m just going to spread some positivity by following the #50thingsilove trending topic on Twitter, and converting my fifty things into a blog post. I hope you guys enjoy it, and can maybe even relate to a few of them!

Well, like my last blog said; life has changed a hell of a lot the past few years, and it just doesn’t stop there. It just keeps changing, sometimes for the good, and just like most things; sometimes for the bad.
Could I have life any other way? Not at all. I used to be terrified of change, but now I embrace it. I guess you could put that down to simply growing up, but you could also put it down to the fact that every good change I’ve had in my life has taught me something new and exciting, just like every bad change has been a lesson learned.
