My Little Canadian Dream.. 

So this is in response to the Daily Prompt’s post the other day.. Dream. https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/fairytale/
Dreams are what everyone has, but noone’s is ever the same. Personally I feel that dreams are some of the most personal things that a person has, as it tells so much of who you are as a person and what you aspire to be. 

I’m a firm believer in going after your dreams. That’s all people say I do, that I have many big dreams and that they change daily.. My ideas change daily, never my dreams! I do have a lot of them.. Some are very long term, ultimate dreams.. Others are just day to day dreams, some are just to help me escape reality and my own headspace at times. My biggest dream of all is to see as much of the world as I can and to not have any regrets. I know it sounds cliche but that’s all I want at the minute, I know as I grow and find out more about myself then these dreams will grow and change too but for now I’d be happy with this. 

I guess I’ve set this in motion and why I’ve started this blog.. For a while now I have dreamt of going to and working in Canada as I think it’s an amazing country and I’ve heard so many incredible things about it. I managed to have my visa to go about 18 months back, however due to an ankle operation, I had to abort that plan. It all worked out in the end, it enabled me to work on the Sports Presentation team at The Rugby World Cup which was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. That Canadian dream was always in the back of my head though. I had a lot of people say to me ‘I knew you wouldn’t go, it was just another pipeline dream for you Georgia’, which was disheartening.. I then managed to get my visa again, it’s a two year one, after a tense waiting game for that invite and I started booking my flight, looking into jobs etc.. It’s all starting to feel real! On September 13th (luckily not on a Friday!) I am on a one way flight to Canada (via a short break in Iceland)! Safe to say, the doubters are shocked that I’m actually going-but that spurs me on to make sure I go and make the most of it! I am so unbelievably excited that I finally get the chance to live out my dream and immerse myself into a completely new life. I’m going so far out of my comfort zone which of course scares me a lot but then I just think of how much fun it’s going to be and how much I’m going to find out about myself and I stop panicking and just embrace the fear. 

There are two different types of people in this world, the ones that go out and make those dreams a reality and the ones who go oh it’s only a dream, I could never do that. As one of my biggest idols, Audrey Hepburn once said.. ‘Nothing is impossible. The word itself says I’m Possible.’

Please comment and let me know what your dreams are too!

Introduction

Hi all,

Bear with me as I have no idea what I’m doing (or how this blog malarkey works…)

I don’t quite know what made me want to write this…maybe I’m missing the creative writing English lessons from school…

I just want to introduce myself really and then go from there. Firstly, this blog won’t be about beauty/fashion etc..it’ll kind of be my take on life I guess. An honest account of what it’s like being a twenty something navigating how to have a life whilst being flat broke and how to juggle numerous things whilst learning to work hard and party harder-trying to figure out that balance! It has no real purpose..boring for most people so I doubt many will read, but it could be good for the soul!
About me, well, I’m a 22 year old party girl and as my friends know, I am fiesty, bubbly, up for a laugh, very open, jump at new challenges and a little bit mad (also obsessed with TV/Film & sloths!). I don’t really have any boundaries in what I’ll talk about and encourage others to be the same, I think it’s great to hear others opinions and sometimes talking (or typing in this case) can be really helpful for others.

I would say I have more of an unusual life compared to some of my friends and what they’re doing with their lives at the minute (don’t mean that to sound dickish), I mean it in the sense that I’ve always known what I’ve wanted to do with my life and took some pretty big risks to launch my career, when others didn’t know what they wanted to so (some still don’t) I’m not knocking that, just giving a picture of different paths people take I guess. I dropped out of college after my first year to do an apprenticeship with ITV, my parents didn’t even know I had applied until I announced I had quit college and started at ITV HQ the following week.. Luckily they’re great and supported me even though they didn’t know the industry and luckily so far, touch wood, things have worked out ok. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes being freelance can be bloody hard, and sometimes wonder should I have done the whole uni thing, but I feel that it’s made me that bit tougher and I’ve learnt some pretty hard life lessons being thrown into a working environment and such a brutal industry at a young age, but I still love every second and count myself very lucky.

I am currently living back at home (trying to save money to go travelling) after living in London all of last year.. and working full time in TV & Event production. At the minute I’m working on a pretty big job which involves travelling to Shanghai, it’ll be my first time there and thought this could be a good way to document my travels through this job and further down the line. I know a lot of others are doing what I’m doing but I’m at a stage in my life where I’m at a crossroads (I’ll explain more later) and having a lot of things put into perspective and maybe some of my mad ramblings might resonate with some of you guys!

I would love to start conversations and interact with others on this site so feel free to message me. (Please go easy on the critique though, I’m a blog virgin!)

Anyway, I think that’s enough of an introduction.. Look forward to hearing from you and posting again!
