Sorry I haven’t blogged for a while, I have been supremely busy with uni work for the past week or so (I’ve even been in the library all afternoon today…yes, on a Saturday!) and just haven’t had a spare minute to sit down and think, let alone write.
But it will all be over soon…only two weeks to go and then 2nd year is over. Oh god, that means I’m gonna be a 3rd year…uh-oh. It’s gonna get serious.
I guess all I wanted to say was this…the STA World Traveller Intern competition is coming to an end, only 4 days to go until they announce the winners, and I for one cannot wait! The suspense is killing me and it’s been so hard to think of anything else. Obviously I want to win, as do all the other 9 finalists (congrats to everyone, we’ve all done amazingly to get this far!), but if I don’t there’s a lot that I can take away from this competition.
I feel that I’ve learnt a lot about myself, and like Emma Sparks, I no longer have the attitude of ‘why bother, I’m never going to win’ but instead I now think ‘well, somebody has to…I might as well give it a go’. My whole outlook on situations like this has changed.
You’ll never know if you don’t give it a go.
That I think is my new motto. And it rhymes, even better!
I’ve decided that even if I don’t win, I am going to do something amazing this summer – maybe I’ll go inter railing around Europe like I had originally planned over 3 months ago, before the whole STA thing kicked off. Or island hopping in Greece. Or head over to see family in America. Or maybe somewhere more exotic, like Thailand? Who knows…
The possibilities are endless.
