Hi everyone! How are you? Since the last time we were “having” coffee (HERE) I have so much to tell you! I really enjoyed writing that post and think we succeeded in covering up the fact I wasn’t actually “having” coffee I was smelling it (as I like the smell more than the taste 🙄😂) especially with the help of those of you who drank mine for me/ordered treats to hide the fact I wasn’t drinking it! 👌😂 It went so well that I couldn’t help but want to meet up again and have another chat! So in the cosiest corner in Costa (or Starbucks, whatever you prefer! 😂) we are “having” coffee! And….:
I would ask you what you’re favourite thing is about the season you are currently in!? (As I understand that depending on where you are right now it might not be autumn like it is here! 😂) And if you wish you are in a completely different season altogether?! 😂
If we were “having” coffee I would tell you that I have started a personal Facebook account! This may not be big news to some but I wasn’t on Facebook before as I was afraid I would be upset by seeing how much the people I used to know have changed 🙈 change is good but being away from the world for so long it was a big step for me to put myself out there. I’m always scared that I used to come across as mean when I was quiet and even when I’m told I must have only come across as nervous I can’t help but think of the worst case scenario 😂 I may rarely go on there but it was a nice surprise to have friend requests accepted by people that paranoid me thought would not be accepted as I was always so quiet and self conscious 😄
If we were “having” coffee I would tell you how I found a collection of magazines that my sister used to make for me when we were little! 😂 They brought back so many funny memories and I’m incredibly happy that I kept them. My sister and I sat together remembering the days I used to beg her to make new issues early for me 🙈😂
If we were “having” coffee I would tell you that next month is my 19th birthday! 🎉 I can’t believe it 🙈 it only feels like yesterday I turned 16 😂 Its upsetting to think about how fast time is going and I feel like I’ve wasted moments even though this time last year was so different and that proves to me that it was not as wasted as I think. Nevertheless this only makes me want to make the most of whatever time I can from now on!
If we were “having” coffee would yours have a seasonal flavour? (I’m tempted to order one myself and see if I prefer it to the coffee I’m “having” right now! 😉😂).
If we were “having” coffee I would tell you how I was tidying my room the other day and decided to get rid of some of my old school stuff. I got really upset because some of those books/notes are from before I was homeschooled and back then I had no idea I would have to be. And then the notes from being homeschooled are too difficult to even look at let alone part with as I feel so sad thinking back to that stage in my life when I was working so hard and now it’s over. Even though I did better than I ever thought I would in my exams it upsets me to think of my mindset at that time, not feeling like I was capable yet wishing to go out to college, I had no idea I wouldnt be able to get out to college and would be doing a home course today (even though I’m enjoyed my course I really wish I could be out there doing one). I look at that time as being a safe place when I was somewhat sheltered from the outside not knowing I wouldn’t be capable of what I was working towards and the books I found when I was tidying up brought back so many memories. There are a few I want to keep but I’m kind of proud of myself for planning on giving away the stuff I know will go to good use with someone else and have no place in my life anymore (especially if it makes me think of it as a bad time 😂 Because it wasn’t, I made the most of what I had, kept going and got through it).
If we were “having” coffee I would ask you if you have started getting Christmas presents yet? Or if you have an idea of what you will be getting everyone! 😂 (That is if you even celebrate Christmas! I’m being way to presumptuous here! 😂).
If we were “having” coffee I would ask you if you remember me telling you last time we had coffee that I hadn’t started my accounting course yet because I was waiting for my textbook? Well since then I have mentioned in updates that when the textbook arrived it was the wrong one so I got in contact with the college and they have sent me out the right one telling me I can keep this wrong one for extra help (plus I found another accounting textbook in a charity shop) so I now have three! 🙈😂 I think our last chat was my good luck charm! 😂 I am really enjoying the course so far! If you’d have asked me this time last year if I would even consider doing a maths based course I would have thought you’d got the wrong lucy and send you on your way! 😂 But I realized I missed the challenge and that with maths you always feel like you’re learning and I love to learn! 🙈 (Win win! 😂). You know how when you get a question right in maths and you feel on top of the world? Like you can do anything? (Until you get the next one wrong that is! 😂) Well I love that feeling and when I stop getting it I know I’m tired and need to take a break so it’s like my work is looking out for me in a roundabout sort of way 😐..I’m making no sense at all! 😂 (Maybe I should stop “having” coffee and actually start having coffee for real in our meetups! 😂).
Thank you for reading! 😉💗 What would you tell me if we were “having” coffee? Have a lovely day!
