Hello, and welcome to my blog!
My name is Lauren, I’m 17 and I completed my HSC in 2013. I’m currently studying a Double Degree in Journalism and Arts at the University of Wollongong! I’m studying this double degree in the hopes of pursuing a career in an area of Journalism such as Broadcasting. I enjoy many things, but my main interests include; coffee, music, writing, reading and drama.
I’ve always been interested in social media – let’s be honest, there’s not many people in our generation who aren’t. I’ve always enjoyed expressing myself via the use of these social mediums. Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram. I know many people always talk about how these social media sites are ruining the society – either via the lack of real world communication or the horrendous amount of bullying that’s involved in the use of social media. Yet, I find it uplifting to be able to express yourself via these sites. I’m excited to begin using this blog more frequently.
I’m extremely nervous about taking this next step in my life – beginning university – yet, I believe that you need to work hard for what you would like to achieve in life. That’s why I am completely prepared to work hard and for as long as I need to, to be able to succeed and have a career that I am 100% happy with.
“Just remember that no matter what happens in life, you can choose how you react. 10% is what actually happens and the other 90% is your outlook. Happy people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.”
Until next time, Lauren.
