Before it's come, and come and gone ♪


Oh hi there. My name's Danni, and I'm hiding.

From what, you may ask?

Reality.

Yet again I've reached the end of term without really even realising it was approaching. And yet again it's time for me to feel completely and utterly bewildered with what could be just around the corner. After five weeks of writing the dissertation at home, there'll be a few weeks of revision, a couple of exams and then....

... just, nothing.



It's certainly going to be weird. As much as I'm ecstatic at the prospect of a month of freedom, of late mornings and warm summer sunshine, I can't help but twitch uncomfortably at the thought of what happens next.

Sixteen years of classrooms, teachers, friends and foes, and all of a sudden it's heading towards a screeching halt. Perspective kind of puts a damper on it all. Especially as you watch all of those you love going on to greater things, moving further towards their dreams as you become more and more scared of achieving yours.


Let's just hope that one day, someday, all of this will have been worth it. 

At least I can leave this journey safe in the knowledge that I've met some wonderful people, many of whom I hope I'll still be laughing, crying and joking with far into the future.

And who knows, maybe I'll be meeting many more along fate's path...wherever that might take me.

// Cardigan ~ Peacocks // Tee ~ Primark // Skirt ~ Goodwood // Belt ~ charity shop // 
// Tights ~ M&S //

On a more light-hearted note...who spotted my favourite Disney character hiding in my room? I guess if all else fails, at least I know he'll never abandon me XD


[p.s. my friend is having a fundraising blog sale for the tragic happenings over in Japan at the moment. It's an issue that's all to easy to brush over in our busy, unaffected lives, but please take a look at her sale here if you get the chance - no matter how big or small, every donation helps.]

I love love love your bag. It's gorgeous.

Do you have plans for after your degree yet? I'm almost there with finding and getting a job, but by interesting parallel, my partner works full time- it's a job he took when he had to come out of the forces because of injury and wasn't supposed to be permanent. That was two years ago. Now, with me making plans and moving on, he's suddenly realised that he could feel left behind as I/friends of his are starting to make progress with careers and things and it's been tough, but also a massive motivation to start making progress of his own.

Bear with me, there is a point, and that is- Don't stress, take your time, and try and see the positive to new oppurtunities.

Oh, and rest assured that whatever you do, you'll be doing it stylishly.

Life is all about not knowing where you're going. I'm doing media at Uni and I'm expected to start applying for jobs and I'm just like whaaaaaaaaaat where do i even begin?

You'll be ok :)

Winnie said...

Love the outfit. I completely understand how you feel! It's scary and I've been spending the last few months taking it easy and in limbo-land until I get on with job applications. You will be absolutely fine though, after so many years of structure and learning, it's completely normal to feel that way!

Emma said...
