Summer, Summer, Summer

My life in the past three months are packed with chaos, excitement, worries… good things and bad things came together and I had to make more efforts to settle and calm down than usual. I mean, it’s not my very first time moving to a new place and start a new life (actually I moved quite frequently these years), but it is the time that I came to a place with so many pressure behind me with an unknown future. I am at that awkward age that can no longer call myself a kid who has plenty of time to waste, but in a new place, there is very little I can do. 2017 is kind of an exhausting year, I realised that I become lazier to pick up the things I love such as blogging, photography and lots of other new things. Sometimes I am afraid of being a boring person but there are already so many things are taking up my time and exhausting me from the inside. I think that is the  post-graduation syndrome they called.

I am that kind of people whose emotion can easily be affected by weather, so I kept wondering if moving to Melbourne (the weather here is just like London you know) is a correct decision for me. But thinking of the silver lining: it’s still summer here, so I literally have spent my 2017 with sunshine, beaches and tropical greenery 🙂 Happy 2018 to you all and let’s have a great year ahead.

    Best of luck for 2018 Mikaela! We’re currently deciding over whether to move to Melbourne for a while. Did you live in London? How’d you find the transition? We’d be doing something very similar

      Hi Zac! Actually I just visited London years ago and was impressed by the weather! haha People say Melb and London have lots of similarities: people here also like art, music, coffee and old things. But still there are differences: in Melb you are embracing an Aussie lifestyle so I reckon that living here would be chiller/slower than in London 😉

        Ha that actually sounds like a good thing though! Could always use living a little slower
