So it's been months guys. I'm not too good at keeping up with this journal. But it's helpful to remember things and put it into words.
So for the past few months I've had plenty of stuff going on. My nan was really sick. She thankfully recovered though, and I got to go visit her for the first time in a while. She had a bad strain of the flu, and we all had to wear masks, gloves, and gowns to protect ourselves. But She seemed to be more upbeat than I expected, so it was nice. I also got to see my aunty and uncle for the first time in years, which was nice.
My great aunt also died. She was 103! The last time I'd seen her was at her 100th birthday, and it'd been a while since then, but I was hit with all the memories of the times we'd go to her house. It was actually really sad - sadder than I expected. Her funeral was yesterday, but unfortunately my dad wouldn't let me go. I think he may have been really upset and didn't want me to see him cry.
I also got broken up with, but no need to go into that. Plenty of people know.
So that's covering the bad and the ugly, but there were some good times too! I've got about a month and a half left of my course, which is really exciting! I'm going to be a qualified baker soon, and then I can get a job in that field. I also got to go see Dynamo's "Seeing Is Believing" show. I'm not too sure I believe in magic, but the show was amazing.
Even more exciting... this week Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them AND Pokemon Moon comes out! I'm seeing Fantastic Beasts with my friends on Thursday, and I'm picking up Pokemon Moon on the Friday! I've been looking forward to these things for over a year and they're finally here!
Mum also decided that this Christmas we're going to go down to the beach for a week, and have Christmas with just our family. I'm not too sure how I feel - I don't like the beach much, or the heat, and I'm worried I'll run out of things to do - but it was really generous of her to book the house and pay for it. So hopefully that'll be fun.
I'm also going to be catching up with friends for a movie night soon, and catching up with some other friends for a pancake date, so that's good :)
Here's hoping that the good keeps continuing and begins to outweigh the bad or ugly.
Til next time (probably in like, 4 months?)
