Haven't you ask yourself the "what I am doing with my life" question? Because with seventeen years of life experience I have already ask myself that.
Of all the decisions I've made just two of them have really make a difference in my life: food and school.
Firstly, food has always been a hot topic at home: I'm a cranky eater. I don't like meat, dairy products, refined sugar foods, spices,etc. I'm the real deal! But I do love vegetables, fruit, grains, pasta and legumes and chicken and turkey. My food story is quite rare and scary sometimes as I had to learn to eat. I don't like labels and I don't really call myself anything, I just don't like some foodstuff. For many years I've called myself a vegetarian when I'm not one! I do love a mean omelette or some fish and chips every now and then. I am Gara and I eat what I like. Don't get me wrong, there are vegetarian and vegan people but please don't call yourself something you're not because you suddenly care about that pig in the neighbor's farm.
Then, the school stuff invaded my headspace. I don't really know what's harder, last year of school or choosing university? I'm not gonna lie, finishing school feels like I'm finally free and my life is starting all over again. But when it comes to university you need to think wisely (or that's what adults say). I don't know yet If I've made the right choices about university but I can assure every single person reading this that IT IS OKAY TO MAKE MISTAKES! I was admitted in three different universities. Apparently, I was moving to Navarre, then to Madrid and now I'm staying at home. Weird, right? I was so excited about the acceptance letters that I didn't think about priorities and opportunities. I know by heart the Journalism and Media programs of these three universities, that's how hard I've been working. I know my decision might be rare but I decided to stay home and move next year. London, Cambridge or Cardiff could be my next home! Go big or go home Gara! Who knows what could happen?!
