I'm the kind of person that is pretty indecisive. Like actually alot. When I'm presented with different options many times I want to make the most of opportunities and do everything and my parents constantly remind me that 'you can't do everything, chose one thing instead of jumping around'.

When it comes to planning your future, many decisions have to be taken and they are SUPER important since many times they will impact you for the rest of life.

That's why I took a gap year.

Everyone was telling me not too, no one thought it was a good idea. But it was something that I really felt I needed to do, and now looking back that was one of the best decisions I ever made.

But this past summer I found myself a bit uneasy at the thought of my university plans. I didn't want to study what I had got accepted into, I truly could not see myself in that city studying for the next four year.

And to be completely honest, the thought of staying in my hometown for my university experience just didn't feel like it that's how things were supposed to be. I couldn't see myself in that place, I knew my experience would be completely different if I was somewhere else. Maybe worse or maybe better, I'd never know if I never exposed myself to an alternative.

One month before starting university in Canada, I made a crazy last minute change and applied to university in Spain. I had an obsession with Spain, I knew that's where I had to be. At least for some time.

So I had the interview and I got accepted, I literally cried real tears when I got the acceptance email. It was hectic, I applied for my student visa two weeks before the start of the academic year.

Some people say it's crazy or exaggerated, but when it comes to going with your instincts and fighting for your dreams, you know what I mean when I say that that is ultimately the most important decisions you will ever make. You need to fight for what you want. It is your future, you are writing your future, don't let someone else write your story.

What a disappointment it would be to open your autobiography and see that it records someone else's life. Same with your life, you are you, and your story is written with your choices.

Ok this is like a ted talk ahahahah. I need to chill. But I want you to take away from this little rant that your dreams and your passions are truly what should be on the top of your mind. Stop worrying about conforming to norms and expectations, you have the full right to pursue your goals and aspirations. That's what makes each of us so unique and individual.

Love u all xoxo
