March 29th 2017 was the day I left home for the first time, I didn't know what I was doing until the moment I set foot in the plane. I was speechless for a moment, I told myself that everything was going to be fine, but then doubt started kicking in, why would you leave your house? why leave your work, why would you go and make things harder for yourself? why? well your dreams, you're chasing your dreams kid. I don't quite know what I'm doing here, all I know is that I'm chasing a dream, we're taught to be in one place all the time, we're taught that in order to be successful we should go to school first and then everything is going to fall in place, I'm doing everything out of order, but just a little reminder that's okay as well, rules sometimes are meant to be broken, I don't know if I'll be successful or if everything will fall in place but all I know is that I'll be working hard towards my dreams, yes there's a lot of doubt within myself but there's also dreams and hopes, there are people out there rooting for me, who believed in me even before I started believing in myself. so hear me out, I'll be trying to keep my sanity and write a blog once a week, I'll put some pictures up of what this journey looks like, and I'll share a bit of my soul in here for you guys.
