Last month I turned twenty years old. It feels quite significant to me and it feels more personal to me than turning 18 or 21 years old. Although I don’t feel any older, I couldn’t believe it’s the start of a new decade, and in some ways, it feels like the beginnings of significant change.
I’m not at school anymore, but instead starting my career from the ground up as an apprentice. With a thirst for travel, I’m hoping to adapt my commitments and responsibilities to help fulfill my future goals and travel plans; these may change in the next few years as anything could happen, but as long as I’m positive with the decisions I make, I shouldn’t feel any regret.
So much has happened these past few years – so many life-changing decisions have brought me to where I am today. There’s so much more I am looking forward to in the next few years too as I grow in my career and also personally from life experiences.
I made it my goal to travel on my own, right before I turned twenty. And I have achieved this by travelling alone to Japan and have learned so much about myself and the people and culture of another country. It has significantly boosted my desire to travel more and to generally do more with utilising my time too. I would admit it was an expensive trip, but as they say, travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer.
Time is an important thing you cannot get back so that is why I want to make the most out of it; I am trying to do so by reducing the amount of time I spend playing video games and watching TV and I am trying to increase the amount of time to read, write, learn and take up more hobbies. Though it is difficult to reduce my overall screen time because I do most of my reading and writing (blogging) activities behind a screen, and I work in Information Technology too which doesn’t make it any better.
I’ve mentioned in one of my previous posts that my productivity has boosted significantly since coming back, but I am slowly fearing that I am regressing back to my old self – of course, which I wouldn’t want. So that’s why I want to continue to do something that gets me out of my comfort zone and keep striving towards my goals.
This is my decade of immense growth, as quoted to me by another fellow blogger. I’m not feeling such change just yet but as long as I’m not falling back into old and negative habits, I should do just fine.
I wonder what I can achieve before I turn twenty-five.
