Moving forward




I know I haven’t written for a long time (3  months to be precise) but I’m back and I have news.

I’ve finally created a self-hosted site called Words by gemm. I published my first post yesterday and I’m really looking forward to continuing my blogging journey on a new site. If you enjoy reading this blog then head on over to my new site and subscribe so you don’t miss out. If you check out my first post be sure to let me know what you think. I’ll be blogging about similar topics that you’ve read on this site but they’ll be a little more polished and I’ll also be sharing a little bit of beauty and fashion too.

Starting afresh is pretty daunting. But I’m learning that sometimes you have to be willing to try something that might not work.

When is the last time you tried something new?

p.s. I might still post here occasionally but for the most part I’ll be on my new site as well as Twitter and Instagram, so join me!


Beginning with College


When you have so much to say, where do you begin?

IMG_20141101_184832-1The past couple weeks my focus has been on my assignments as the deadline was coming up. Surprisingly I didn’t end up getting majorly stressed like I have in the past. I just kept reminding myself that getting stressed wouldn’t help and how great I would feel once it was handed in.

College has been going well these past few weeks. I’m taking a part-time course so I don’t have as much time to get to know my classmates but I’m getting there. Lately I’ve been joining in which isn’t something I normally have the confidence to do without 2nd (and 3rd) guessing everything I say and do. But things have been going well for me, I feel comfortable within myself and I’m allowing people to get to know me.

Being the only girl in my class hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be. I’m quite lucky because my class are all pretty rad and chilled guys. The ones that I spend the most time with are great because they’re funny but also super helpful whenever I’m stuck.

There was a time in November when I thought of leaving my course but that’s gone now because I’m slowly realising how much I enjoy learning about Civil Engineering. Best of all for the first time in a long time I don’t have that feeling of insignificance. I don’t have the thoughts in my head telling me everyone else is better than me and that I’m hopeless. I think the reason for this is because I know that it’s okay if I don’t understand something the first time and it’s not the end of the world. On the flip-side when I do understand things I get to help out the ones that don’t and that always feel good.

This was meant to be a ‘my whole life since I last posted’ blog post but it’s only been more of a college life update from the past few weeks.

That’s all for now folks,
