- Go to the nearest shops that sell flowers.
- Buy your favourite bouquet.
- throw them onto a cloth and start taking pictures…
or at least that’s what I once did and got carried away…
Life is Hard.
Forgive me for thinking college is easy and for thinking I would have time to keep my blog updated.
It’s getting to a point where stress is taking over.
I keep saying to myself ‘ Work Hard. Dream Big’, but I don’t know if I can to it. Or if I’ll live my dream life in 10 years time, and that scares me.
Isn’t it scary to think what you do when you’re only 16 affects what you’re going to be doing when you’re 60?
“Think positive” “You can do it” “just work hard” she types as she whispers it to herself!
Yes I know. I said I would post and that I would be more active but who knew college would be this hard. This is a post I was supposed to post 4 months ago, but i’m only posting it now because we’re on christmas holiday.
So as you know now the country that I visited, which also happens to be my home country, is Sri Lanka. I went there in the summer, after 6 years. Although the reason to returning was not so great as it was due to my beloved grandad passing away, I must say that it was an amazing opportunity to meet my family and friends and spend time with them again.
So some people may not know where Sri Lanka is. It is the small island below India. It is a beautiful tropical island where it’s sunny all year round. (except in december when its rainy season, which unfortunately I did not get to experience as I went in the summer and it was extremely hot)
I love the rain, and by rain I don’t mean those drizzles ohhhhh noooo… This is the type of rain that floods your house and roads, although it isn’t the best type of weather for adults, if you were a kid like me growing up there would be amazing because you have your own little lake to make paper boats and sail them in.
I had a pretty simple childhood which I am very thankful for.I lived in the coastal area so we would go to the beach a lot and play in the sand and stuff. I didn’t grow up with technology around me. I was one of those kids who grew up in their imagination. I didn’t have any electronic gadgets and was a very active sportive person. I mean my favourite thing was to climb big trees for god’s sake and when you have 4 older cousin brothers it does not help you grow up girly, soooo I’m pretty much a tomboy.
Okay I really don’t why I am telling you all of this you probably don’t care anyway. So these are some pictures I took while I was travelling there, it takes 7 hours to drive from the airport to my city so I kept making the driver stop in the middle to take pictures. I have so much more but obviously I don’t want to post all of them as no one would want to look at all of them.
Sorry again for the really long intro for those of you who actually read it. I will try my best to post more often but apparently it’s kind of hard when you stupidly chose to do all three science and photography for your A levels.
You may or may not have noticed that I have not been active on my blog for a very long time. So I just wanted to let you know what’s been happening.
I know that I aim to make this a photography based blog and I wanted to post as much as I possibly can. However when I had started this blog it was close to my last year in high school. So unfortunately it was getting really close to my exams therefore I wasn’t able to post as much as I had hoped to. So even though I don’t have much of an audience I wanted to say sorry for not posting a lot.
Now…recently I’ve been very stressed and depressed. I have almost finished my exams but I have one more left. The stress was mainly because of my exams however because I want to be honest with you guys, I have to say that I lost someone very close to me recently. Personally I don’t want to say a lot about it because it has only been a week since that special person passed away. That special person is my granddad who was very close to me and whom I loved so much and will continue to love. He is the most kind-hearted person I know and I have indescribable love for him. So as to say I have been going through a lot. I lived with him for 10 years and for the past 6 years I had to move away from my home country.
So in about two weeks time, after my exams, me and a few of my family members are going back to my home country, to see my grandmother, who is also upset as she has lost her beloved husband. It is the first time I am going to go back home since I left 6 years ago. We did meet up with my grandparents 3 years ago, but not in my home country, where I loved and cherished every minute I spent with them . Although I’ve always been excited to return to my home country, where I am going to see my grandmother and my cousins and family, I have to say that a part of me doesn’t want to go back to see that my granddad is no longer there. I’m already probably boring you with this long story therefore I’m not going to go into more detail.
Hopefully next time I post it will be either from my home country, which I will reveal soon, or it could be from the country I live in now, which may be because I might not get Wi-Fi there! Even though I will be spending most of my time with my grandmother, I will try and take a few photographs for this blog.
I am sorry if this long story or this post was not what you were expecting. I hope to post more of my normal things soon. Also since I’m going to have a long summer and soon will be in college, I’m going to try my best to keep this blog updated.
Please leave your thoughts and comments if you can. It would really make me feel better to know that my posts are being read by someone.
Thank you ever so much, love -h
