Let me start by saying, I’ve changed my mind about what I want to do more times than a Kardashian has said the word “literally”. I’m currently at my second university which is RMIT in Melbourne, studying Interior Design. I started the course in hopes to take over editing Vogue Living once Neale Whitaker retires, however I’d now much rather be a judge on ‘The Block’.
I still wonder every day what my next step will be, and honestly kick myself that this hasn’t been set in stone yet. The truth is though… it doesn’t really matter. Decisions about your future should never be rushed.
Have you ever heard the saying “do something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”? I love to keep this in mind when planning my life out, the only issue is loving too much and wanting to do everything. (I’ll probably be 65 and still sitting here like hmmm what next girlfriend, formula one racing?)
I guess what I’m trying to say is, if you still have no idea what you’re doing, or want to do, you aren’t alone. The key to success is to find something you love, then find out how to make money from it.. KIDDING. The key to success is happiness. If you are happy with what you’re doing and where you are, you are winning.
The biggest injustice someone can do to is to kid themselves. If that Law degree straight out of school seems a little far fetched for you, go on a gap year! If you’re nervous about not surviving in a flat, stay home or live in a hall! There are ways around everything. I want every single person leaving school to be so stoked and excited and to not have one burden.
Just be you, take your time, live your life (party if you want) and most of all FIND HAPPINESS.

I cannot write an accurate bio because I like just about everything… which makes it bloody hard for me to settle down, or make any form of decision actually. I ALWAYS bite off more than I can chew and I LOVE it, even though I know I’m a hot mess. I’m very sensitive, get excited WAY too easily, have an irrational fear of crocodiles, and I watch a Disney movie at least once a week.
