TED talks

I have just deleted over a years worth of blog, and oh my word it feels refreshing.
I am going to take a little break from blogging.
I need to figure out what exactly I want out of this blog, because up until now it's been an outlet for many things, a place to share what I'm excited about and a way for my friends across the world to keep up to date with me since I can't always make online chats. 

I expect my followers to stray and leave me but hopefully others will find me worth while once I return with a more organised idea.

I will still be around reading all of my favourite blogs though! I could never give up blog browsing :) 

For now, I say goodbye and I leave you with this TED talk 'If I Had A Daughter'. I think everyone should give it a watch even if you don't or won't ever have a daughter, if you want a son instead or if you are a son or a mother or father or sister or brother or aunt or uncle.... just if you are a person. It applies to a much broader audience and it's message is much more than just 'things I want my daughter to know', it's stuff everyone should learn.

25 *updated* things about me

1. I'm 19 years of age, my birthday is in June

7. But I am also pretty pessimistic
8. I've lived in many different places
9.  My family is amazing
10. For almost half a year I did not have a phone and I did not mind one bit
11. But now that I have one again I panic when I don't have it for too long
12. I can fall asleep to any amount of noise
13. I can't actually whistle
14. I wish I was funny but I've come to accept that I'm not.

20. ...but if I'm not being sarcastic and I'm being serious you'll know.
21. If I don't like you I WILL tell you, so if I haven't said I don't, I probably do like you.
22. I don't dislike many people though :)

24. I talk a lot.... unless I'm in a group of people I don't know very well who all know each other... then I go very quiet because chances are they're talking about stuff I know nothing about and people I don't know or they're reminiscing....
25. I am unemployed but everyday I wake up thinking maybe I won't be by the end of the day. It's the optimist in me.
