Haha okay so this one is really easy to pick. What is my most memorable trip and why? Obviously Ibiza!
The summer between finishing school and starting university, I went to Ibiza with my parents and my sister. We stayed in an adult’s only hotel and it was the first holiday in 8 or 9 years that we didn’t have Mum’s mum with us. Rachel was the youngest guest there and so we got a lot more attention than other guests – although I think her looks might’ve had something to do with that. It was the first holiday we went on that I actually felt 100% comfortable and like I could’ve stayed longer than our two weeks.
As a result, we went again the next two years! However, they have seriously upped the prices due to a recent refurbishment – who pays over £2000 per person for two weeks half board? I can cruise for less than that. It upsets me that I won’t be able to go back next summer, we’ve made some real friends in the staff there, never mind some of the other guests. If you have the money, I would seriously recommend Sol Beach House Ibiza, however I won’t be back for quite some time now due to the sudden increase in price.
Why are my dreams important and what are they? Well… For as long as I can remember, I’ve dreamt of being a mum and being a teacher. I’m currently working on getting into teaching – I’m studying physics at university in the hope of doing a PGCE or a PDGE as it’s known here in Scotland. I’m emailing schools, asking to do work shadowing for the month of June after my exams have all ended, as the more experience I have the more likely I am to be accepted for a course.
Being a mum may be slightly more difficult/complicated but I’ll figure it out somehow.
One of the longest running dreams of mine was finally reached in May this year. For as long as I can remember, I’ve dreamed of going to Disneyland – didn’t matter to me whether it was Paris or in the USA. At the age of 20, I finally got to go and actually I’m so happy I was older when I first went. I had the energy to keep going. I watched the parades and was tall enough that it didn’t matter if the adults with their children blocked my view. I could go on all the rides I wanted to, and could sit and wait for my friends if they were on a ride I didn’t want to go on. No one could tell me not to buy too many soft toys, and when I watched the night time show, I felt the shivers down my spine. It was an incredible experience and one which will be with me for many years to come.
What is your greatest achievement and how did it feel to achieve it?
To be honest, this one caused me a lot of difficult when writing. And while I’m at it, I’d like to apologise for the fact this is centred and formatted weirdly as I’m writing on the app on my phone and so have no idea how to fix what I’ve done.
My greatest achievement isn’t something that I think about frequently. I set mini goals and am happy when I achieve even the small things. Also, what’s a big achievement to me may not be what you consider an achievement so again, sorry.
However, I would have to say that my biggest achievement so far in life is getting in to university. I may have messed up a bit since then and be repeating a year… but I still got here and that’s at least something!
