    10 Years Challenge

    Hey Guys, I hope you are well. I notice how everyone is taking part in a 10 years challenge. I thought I share a post on here for my 10-year challenge. So 2009! Two major things happened in 2009. My baby sister was born I was shocked when my mum told me she was pregnant at 38 years old. I was very excited that I was going to be a big sister again (I have a younger brother who is 5 years younger than me). Such a huge age gap. When Mia was born, I was so happy. It felt like she was my child.  Baby doll was my all time favourite toys to play with as a little girl. I was obsessed with baby dolls. I even had a collection of Babyborn brand, the complete sets – baby clothes,…

    My 18th Birthday

    My 18th birthday was one of the most memorable birthday ever. I was normally a 1 drink type of girl (still is). Yes, yes, yes I know, you guys think I am lying right? However, on my 18th, I decided to get drunk. My friends and I decided to go clubbing – which off-course was the only way to celebrate because I am now legal to get into clubs. There’s nothing stopping me!! We decided to have drinks at a friend’s house and then hit the clubs. In the club, I decided to drink anything i can get my hands on – shots, beers, cocktails. I was feeling good, I…

    Finding Out About My Pregnancy

    Hey Guys, welcome to another story time. This post is about how I found out I was pregnant back in 2013. The pregnancy was a complete shock, well sort off, I knew something was happening but never thought I’d be pregnant. You guys should know the whole stages to getting pregnant, right? The love making, the body changes, mood swings, morning sickness, etc. Surprise I’m Pregnant!!! Well, for me, it was a little different. I just remember waking up with a sharp pain in my tummy which lasted for few mins. I thought it was weird. I have never had the feeling before, I thought maybe my period is coming…

    My First Job

    This was the happiest I have ever been in my life. That was back in 2012 at my first ever employment. After years and years of unsuccessful job applications – my whole world changed in November 2011. Ever since I left school in 2006 and moved out of my parents’ house in 2009, while I was studying in college, I was also job hunting and living on welfare. Living on the benefit was very depressing. I hated it so much, I was still studying just to get out of the house. I was 19, still young and everything, I should not be living like that. Yes, some people would say…
