Love is Strength

As I complete my final placement, finalise my final essays. I know all too well that my life as a student will come to an end very soon. I have ten or so weeks left of me training as a teacher. And hopefully by the end of all this I will be a newly qualified teacher. 

First day of Placement (Good Luck cards for my lovely flatmates)
And my current favourite children's book.
 This view makes waking up at 5:45am all that more bearable.

I feel that I have learnt a lot in the past few months, not just about fending for myself but about myself as a person. Though I am still as shy and introvert as ever, I know that I have stepped more out of my shell. I have always lived in my safe bubble, I have always been opposed too change. Now I am thinking about my future, about fulfilling my dreams, thinking about my career and the town/city where I begin my teaching years. I know that it isn't always the best option taking the easy route.

Here are a few fun snaps taken with some of my flatmates (Fond memories that I have built with these beautiful people <3

I know that I am a city girl at heart but, nothing beats home, after all home is where the heart is. Despite my distaste for my hometown and quite frankly I don't actually miss the town, I just miss the people who have helped shaped my life. 
There are opportunities in the Big Apple, that I am rather tempted to take it, but whether I have the courage to pursue my dream is another question. 

 I am very family orientated and not a girl who copes well with change, so to step even further out of my comfort zone and step into the bright lights of New York City, sounds like a daunting experience, especially when it isn't for a holiday. Maybe I just need to bite the bullet and just go for it. (Maybe listen to some of those quotes above) 

I very much would love to stay in London, it would be amazing to find a teaching job somewhere in the big city. Preferably in and around the area I am living in now but, who knows? Things happen for a reason. 
I know I want to be living in London for at least a few years, and maybe do some travelling and finally make it to the city of my dreams. 

London's beauty, as night falls <3

I am a hopeless romantic, I have a love for all things cute and like any girl I love flowers, I strongly believe that things happen for a reason. 

For a love of flowers <3

That memorable moments appear when you least expect it. I left home and I have found my new love for London.
Here are just a few quotes that tend to get me through the day.

 Always a girl that dreams, that hopes what I search for, what I have always dreamed will come true however, I have slowly started to learn that if things are meant to happen they will, there is no point in forcing something that is just not meant to happen. Sometimes, dreams don't come true and at the time it feels like it is the end of the world, but everything happens for a reason, I know that I will find what I am searching for, one day...and I know one day I will make it to New York, whether it is for work or for pleasure. Whether I am alone or I am with a significant other, or with a group of friends or my family. 

Pessimism is generally my middle name however, I know that I need to stay positive,that I need to believe in my own strengths believe in my own abilities. I know I can be a good teacher, I know I can teach, I just need to believe. I need to have hope, have faith, to love and to always dream.

A few snaps back home with one of the besties <3 

Hold out for what you love, because waiting for the best is worth it. Things happen for a reason. And finally always treasure the good moments, they may be simple, but they are worth it <3 

The best face to pull when you are worried/nervous/ anxious.
