Like the seasons, things change. Spring has always been my favourite season, I love the crisp mornings and longer evenings, I love watching the new born ducklings all waddle down my road in a line to their pond, I love the fresh flowers and the idea that for so many species Spring is a sign of new life and new beginnings. However, despite this, Spring has also always been the season where I have battled the hardest. The season of end of year exams, coursework deadlines, the race to get 'bikini ready' for summer, the season of ending the 'school year' or university year and the season of worrying about what is coming next. But this year, Spring doesn't bring with it the fear of the unknown, Spring brings excitement for all the amazing things that are upcoming in my life. So, April, let's mutually agree this year to be kind to one another. I will appreciate your presence, if you appreciate mine.
As mentioned above, my life is about to get pretty exciting over the next few months, and there are some seriously amazing things in the pipeline for Amy Elizabeth.
Before April is over I will be sunning myself in Majorca, attending the UK Blog Awards (I'm still trying to comprehend the fact that I've even been shortlisted for such an amazing award), and jetting off to New York to support my brother in the International Championship of Collegiate Acappella finals (an event which I will definitely be blogging about). Following this, I have two weeks to seriously get my head down and revise for my end of year exams, before heading off to the lake district with a group of friends, followed by Parklife, immediately followed by the beginning of my placement year as a fashion merchandiser!
There are some crazy times ahead, a lot of which will push me far out of my comfort zone, but if your dreams don't scare you they aren't big enough. For the first time in my life, the thought of leaving my comfort zone doesn't fill me with dread and I'm so excited to see what these next few months have in store.
