A Throwback to my 18th Birthday

Hello hellooo. Hope you’ve all been well! You will see that I missed my usual Monday morning post but that was actually because I was away in Toulouse, France for a few days for some pre-birthday/birthday festivities, it was a lot of fun. I’m not so big on doing huge birthday celebrations as I find it all a lot of pressure to organise, especially trying to match up everybody’s schedules (and sometimes dealing with flakes), so unless it’s a significant birthday, I tend to either have a small dinner or (for the past few years) just go abroad! Last year, I went to Madrid for a weekend. Up to now, my “big” birthdays have been 16, 18 and 21. For my 16th I took all my closest friends (via the bank of mum and dad) to go and see Thriller Live in the West End. For my 18th and my 21st I threw parties.

I planned to start my own YouTube channel once upon a time shortly after graduating and my first video was going to be a “get to know me tag”. I even filmed some vlog footage during a holiday to Portugal with Levi and that vlog was going to be my second video. After those two videos… I wasn’t quite sure where I’d turn for #3. I just couldn’t figure out how I was going to make my channel unique to the hundreds of others doing a ‘juicy Q&A’, an excessive haul, or some type of prank. Eventually, after a lot of stalling, I decided against it. I really only wanted to take on YouTube because I felt like I had to – what kind of social media-ish person was I if I didn’t have a YouTube channel?! But the truth is that, it just isn’t really my thing. I’m a writer at heart, I share with my words, this is really what I enjoy doing and what I’ve always enjoyed doing – so why not focus on what I’m good at?
