i reached my favourite number... i’m 17 now... 🎈
for the first time in my life, i actually felt like i didn’t want step into a new age. i didn’t want to be 17. i wanted to be 15 again. i don’t know why. the feeling lasted for a part of the day, but now, i am feeling quite good with being 17 years young.
after three lessons at school, all of which were fantastic and a great kick start to 17, i went to waterstones to get my hand on some books, as i do every year(thanks to my sister for providing me with a gift card every year).
i put around 30 books, more or less, in my basket and had to choose only six which proved to be a difficult task. i feel guilty about the ones i left behind but simultaneously, i can’t wait to read the ones i purchased.
then i had cake and tea with family at one of my favourite cafes in covent garden. i will probably talk more about it in my future posts.
and then, i went home to my kitten chanel because she never fails to keep me company and cheer me up. she’s the best of buddies🌸🐱
finally, against my initial will, i went to my ice skating test which i so desperately wanted to ditch since i had no faith in passing it. but, after i boosted up the levels of tea and cake in my blood, i impulsively decided to get it over with. and since 17 is my lucky number, i miraculously passed it with polished moves, curves and turns.⛸
i’m anxious, but have never been more grateful...
thanks to my family, friends, teachers, my grandma’s spirit, God and the soul inside me,
i am so grateful for making to 17
and still going strong ...🎈💛
