The inevitability of our impending future :)

I apologise about my absence after a post on my tropical Holliday I didn't know what to post as I am unsure as to which direction I want this blog to go in and if we're being honest in didn't have another surreal beautiful holiday to share with you all as like who can afford that so whatever it was to be is a let down haha.

Over the past week I have been questioning my future in particular now so more than ever.  I mean I have always wondered and brainstormed what I was to be when I grew up.  When I was five it was a fairy. When I was seven a princess. Ten a teacher.  And now that I am almost seventeen and at a crucial stage in my life where I make the stressful life determining decision I have nothing.  No clue as to what I want to be.  

Over the past week I was asked to fill out my subjects for school next year which here in New Zealand starts in late January early February, I sat in front of my computer screen to fill out my subject choices with a blank expression.  My school is technologically very advanced so everything is digital these days. I sat with complete reluctance. The only subject choices I filled in willingly were level three English and biology.  The rest I did not want to choose.  Through this situation I realised that I do not want to return to school next year.  I have never enjoyed school very much and as a child fake sick days was a weekly thing as I struggle with anxiety and in general I disliked school very much though I was never particularly terrible in school. I always got decent grades.  I just disliked the regimented days, busy hallways and the inescapable social situations so returning to school has never been easy for me and now that I have the choice whether to return again  it's made me avoid going back as much as possible.

I am considering cropping out. The only issue about dropping out of school is that I am unsure as to what I want to do.  I wanted to be an international flight attendant as I love to travel but I am 2.5cm to short as well as being to young.  This realisation of my dwarf ness preventing me from being a flight attendant was rather disappointing as you can imagine.  I could still grow but being to young means I would have to return to school next year or take up a job until then but what if I am still to short or it don't make standards then I do not have university entrance as I left school to early and am stuck as to career choices.  I then brainstormed ideas such as makeup artistry but realised I can't even draw without making it look like a death scene let alone drawing on somebody though I do love makeup I don't think I really have a knack for it.  I then thought of being a youtuber but the 0.05% chance of ever making it in the youtube industry and the fear of camera as well as the lack of equipment needed held me back from that aspiration. I am still stuck for ideas.  Making life decisions at seveteen is far to difficult and I wish they tested us like on divergent at the age of 12 and told us based on personality, traits, likes, dislikes and skills they told you a career path to partake on.  That would make this a heck of a lot easier. 

Anyway I apoligise for the less exciting blog post! Next week I am posting my hair car routine so be excited for that and don't forget to follow and comment. 

Thank you for the support

My mid winter escape

My mid winter escape

In early June my mother, father, younger sister and I escaped the winter chills that we were amidst in little cold New Zealand and took a holiday to the beautiful tropical island of Rarotonga.  We arrived at Auckland airport after a long four hour drive with many excited members of the road trip.  We had visited my Oma and Opa (my Dutch grandparents) at their place in the Bay of Plenty to visit my dearest Oma's to celebrate her 85th birthday and visit her in hospital as she was very sick.  After spending the weekend with the oldies we drove back to Auckland in time to catch our 7:00PM flight to Rarotonga.  As we were lining up to check in our luggage I spotted the very talented and famous Jamie Mcdell.  We ran over to take ask politely if we could have a quick picture. She was very willing to take a picture and asked us where we were travelling and told us about where she was going.  She was the kindest person and came across as a very down to earth and nice person. After also spotting a silver fern and capturing a few snaps with her, guzzling down a tank juice and munching down some food we boarded our flight which was to take us to our tropical destination and kicked back our feet and enjoyed the flight.  When we arrived In a much warmer climate we were greeted with lei's and taken to our beautiful and welcoming resort. After a sleeping for a few hours we woke up the next morning and spent the day lounging on the beach, taking in the sun, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and having mock tails on the beach.

Such tranquility

In Avarua the main town on the island one of the only open harbour places on the island the rest has a reef surrounding it making it very safe and great for snorkelling.

For the rest of the 10 days we were their we enjoyed the warmer weather and explored the tiny island by shopping in town and going right round the island twice on hired scooters,  indulged in the beautifully exquisite meals that were served on the island hung out on the beach, went on a lagoon cruise and snorkelled through the clear beautiful water with many fish.

After an enjoyable 10 days on the beautiful tropical island we departed at 3 in the morning and headed back to the hustle and bustle of our hectic busy life's in Cold Auckland, New Zealand.
